What's Home?

It’s a cold and moody morning in the city of flamingos. Am hungry and tired. 954 more words

Struggles

ये दौलत भी ले लो, ये शोहरत भी ले लो

वह बचपन ही तो था,
जिसमे बड़ा बनना था,
अब जब बड़े हो ही गए है,
तो थोड़ा जी ही लेते हैं।

जीवन एक ख्वाहिशों का घड़ा हैं,

आसमां छूना, अपने आप में सपना बड़ा हैं,
अब जब सपने देख ही लिए है बड़े,
हो गए हैं, अपने पाँव पर खड़े,
आओ, थोड़ा जी ही लेते हैं।

सकारात्मक विचार थे मन में,
फिर न जाने क्यों, नकारात्मक राह पर चल दिए,
बचपन के वह बचपने को,
न जाने कहाँ खो दिए?
जब बड़े हो ही गए,
तो थोड़ा जी ही लें!

फिरसे वह उमंग ले आयें,
खुलकर थोड़ा हस लिया जाए,
बड़ा तो वैसे ही होना था,
उस बच्चे का साथ क्यों छोड़ दिया जाए?
वह माहोल दोबारा बनाये,
सुकून भरे जीवन को,
ता उम्र दोहराएं।

Gaming Grandma

Once upon a time, kids played innocent video games that had, as their selling point, learning and teachable moments embedded in the fun.  LeapFrog was one of these; a creative, book-oriented electronic game whose only purpose was to teach our kids how to count, how to read, and how to sing very annoying songs. 844 more words

Why I Teach my Kids That the Most Important Thing to be is KIND
