I was sitting idle..... doing nothing....No, not that I had nothing to do ! In fact I had a fantastic reason for not doing anything...'too much work ........don't know where to start from?'
I tried to talk to my daughter, but at times children play adults! she simply ignored me. She was busy with her drawing...all the crayons, colour tubes and brushes were there on the floor..... Different colours pulled some strings in my mind.....I tried to relate those colours to the events of my life..........

Blue--- Colour of the universe!
To be here as the wisest creation of God in the form of human being.

White-- Honesty and sincerity!
- To live life peacefully with best of my ability.

Red--- Moments of anguish and anxiety!
- Making mistakes and then regreting them.

Pink--- Health!
- No major health problem for the family(*touchwood*).

- Be able to be happy with life's little pleasures....believing in my own ability and work.

Green-- Pride and Richness!
- To be able to *create* two wonderful daughters!

Gray-- Failures!
- Moments of trying hard and not getting desired results.

- I think I am not a coward, some fighting spirit is there in me.

Then there will be a complete 'BLACK-OUT' when death will be meeting me, making my life whole!! Till then I am enjoying these different shades of life.....

A Call For Bapuji
(written on 03-10-02)

Bapuji, Why you have arrived that much before?
Today we need you even more.
Politicians are concerned with only the vote,
Police and criminals are sailing in same boat.
No voice is reaching up to the leaders,
Laws are special for rich,money-makers!

Ministers are busy with their starched dresses,
Can't you see the stunned Indian faces ?
Bureaucrats are lying,
Hopes are flying,
Poor are crying,
Farmers are dying.
Common Indian man is left alone,
Nothing else but he is following your “Moun”.

Oh! Bapu! What else you want to know ?
Come! Please guide us where to go ?
Your own nation is in great pain,
If it is possible, come back again.
