You & I

Posted by shiwuz on March 29, 2014

you&iCrazy2

You and I.
We’re a crazy two.
The words we say.
The things we do.

They called me a nutcase.
They who? Well of course my friends.
They said I need to calm my horses.
They said I’m out of hands.

So when I met you I thought
Hey! I’ve found my match.
You make me hum, you make me laugh.
I thought, Okay, what’s the catch?

There was none then.
There still aint one.
You and I are made for fun.
We back hug and we kissy face.
We knock knock and we run away.

So why is all this ramble?
And why is all this now?
Well,
I know you like to hear me say
Just how much I’m in love.

Melancholy

Posted by shiwuz on January 20, 2013

Melancholy

(Photo courtesy: http://trippendicular.blogspot.de/)

This realization is hitting me hard
making me sad
making me cringe
tearing me, all of me, apart!

A simple deliverance it might have been for someone,
this news of our existence – ceasing to exist!
How it changes me, my life, my every day
When they wont be a part of any of this.

How can I be calm, at peace?
When they’ll be out there, restless, searching,
trying to find a new means of survival.
How can I be at, any, ease?

Lost, sad, afraid, tearful, anxious.
Here, I am.
I know not, why I survived?
At least, our sorrow could have been the same.

Rehnuma

Posted by shiwuz on January 6, 2013

Humein gumrah kisi ne nahi kiya.
Ye bhi nahi k humein sahi galat ki pehchan nahi.
Lekin jab dil pe junoon savaar ho to kya galat kya sahi,
Hum to khud hi apni raahon kay rehnuma thae…

-With despair, agony, anger and lots of love

Posted by shiwuz on June 2, 2012

your void

A storm in my heart
Is trying hard
Its raging and roaring
And tearing all apart

I never knew such agony
I never knew such pain
All those times I needed you
Alas! You were not there again

Stop for once
And take a clue
Joy or pain I need to share
And I have none but you

Smiling for no reason
Walking hand in hand
Seem like things in movies
That You and I never can

From you I crave a look
With you I wish to dance
With me I wish you talked
Oh! How I Yearn Romance

Think of me sometimes
Give me but a chance
I may be worth your time
I may be worth a glance

I hope you realize, and soon
That I’m a human too
That I have lot of love to give
To you or not to you

-With despair, agony, anger and lots of love

Kal Kabhi Guzri Hi Nahin…

Posted by shiwuz on July 9, 2011

Pehle ghanto baatein karte thae
Itni baatein ki waqt kam pad jaata tha
Fir ye toh hui kuch dus baara saal pehle ki baat
Aaj ki toh kuch alag hi kahaani hai

Dus saal guzar chuke
Lekin yaadein jaise abhi tak bani hi nahin
Kyun? Tum shaayad puchho
Kyunki lagtaa hai jaise sab ab hi ki kahaani hai

Jaise sab ab hi ho rahaa hai
Jaise kal kabhi guzri hi nahin
Jaise tum saamne ho mere
Aur raat abhi utri hi nahin

Kahaan kabhi socha thaa
Ke tum itnaa yaad aaoge
Ye bhi kahaa socha thaa
Ke tum aise hi bichhad jaaoge

Aaj bhi toh hoti hai apni baatein
Lekin wo pehle jaisi baat kahaan?
Itna kuch dabaa liya hai dil mein ki
Hothon k liye kuch baaki hi nahin

Aaj waqt toh kaafi hai
Lekin baatein kam pad jaati hai
Dil baith sa jaata hai, aur aankhein?
Aankein bejhijhak nam ho jaati hai

Baato baato mein, Kal ki yaado mein,
kahaan se kahaan kho gai
Jo kehna thaa wo kahaa hi nahin
Phir jo apni baat ho toh bataaungi
Chaahti toh tumhe shaayad bhulaa deti
Lekin aisaa naa jaane kyu, kabhi chaahaa hi nahin…

पहले  घंटो  बातें  करते  थे
इतनी  बातें  की  वक़्त  कम  पड़  जाता  था
फिर  ये  तो  हुई  कुछ  दस  बारा साल  पहले  की  बात
आज  की  तो  कुछ  अलग  ही  कहानी  है

दस  साल  गुज़र  चुके
लेकिन  यादें  जैसे  अभी  तक  बनी  ही  नहीं
क्यूँ ? तुम  शायद  पूछो
क्यूंकि  लगता  है  जैसे  सब  अब  ही  की  कहानी  है

जैसे  सब  अब  ही  हो  रहा  है
जैसे  कल  कभी  गुज़री  ही  नहीं
जैसे  तुम  सामने  हो  मेरे
और  रात  अभी  उतरी  ही  नहीं

कहाँ  कभी  सोचा  था
के  तुम  इतना  याद  आओगे
ये  भी  कहा  सोचा  था
के  तुम  ऐसे  ही  बिछड़  जाओगे

आज  भी  तो  होती  है  अपनी  बातें
लेकिन  वो  पहले  जैसी  बात  कहाँ ?
इतना  कुछ  दबा  लिया  है  दिल  में  की
होठों  क  लिए  कुछ  बाकी  ही  नहीं

आज  वक़्त  तो  काफी  है
लेकिन  बातें  कम  पड़  जाती  है
दिल  बैठ  सा  जाता  है, और  आँखें ?
आँखें  बेझिझक  नम हो  जाती  है

बातो  बातो  में, कल  की  यादो  में,
कहाँ  से  कहाँ  खो  गई
जो  केहना था  वो  कहा  ही  नहीं
फिर  जो  अपनी  बात  हो  तो  बताउंगी
चाहती  तो  तुम्हे  शायद  भुला  देती
लेकिन  ऐसा  ना  जाने  क्यों, कभी  चाहा  ही  नहीं

you

Posted by shiwuz on September 3, 2010

What it was or what it is, I care less
What mattered was you, then and now
And I will see that that’s how it stays

Then it was attraction,
I the subject who objectified the ‘you’
You being the driver of my reckless do’s

Then it was adamance,
An urge, a greed
Now all there is, is the need

What was in me has changed
A fire that was there
Now all there is, a spark, but that’s enough

I have you
I am the one who made the choice
And I am surviving, a pleasure

All I need to say is
Then it was you, and today too
And from where I see, it will always be you

Posted by shiwuz on March 31, 2010

Enjoy one more great piece of art from the same friend who likes to stay anonymous, who I have now nicknamed – BaeNaam!

Jab pucchaa to sach bayaan na kar paayaa
Ab sacchai se zyada khud se darta hun

Kaise izhar karu ke ab tu sirf ek zaroorat hai
Jab chaahat kisi aur ke dil me chuppaaye baitha hun

Wafaa ki meesaal ban baitha tha
Meri parchhai bhi teri muskuraahat ke wajah thi
Ab jab unke darmiaan hotaa hun
Toh tere gum ki bhi fikar nahi rahi

 

For my Hindi readers:

जब पूछा तो सच बयां ना कर पाया
अब सच्चाई से ज़्यादा खुद से डरता हुं
 
कैसे इज़्हार करू के अब तु सिर्फ़ एक ज़रूरत है
जब चाहत किसि और कि दिल मे छुपाए बैठा हुं
 
वफ़ा कि मिसाल बन बैठा था
मेरी परछाई भी तेरी मूस्कुराहट कि वजह थी
अब जब उनके दरमियां होता हुं
तो तेरे गम कि भ फ़िक्र नहिं

KAUN

Posted by shiwuz on December 30, 2009

khushnuma aankhon ke bheetar, chhupi nami pehchaane kaun
zaahir khushi har koi jaane, dil mein dard hai jaane kaun

raat aur din bas yehi silsila, kaun sahi hai kaun galat
lamha lamha toot toot kar, khatm ho raha jaane kaun

dheeme dheeme pighalte hue, armaano ke shaffaq ye jaam
gumshuda koi shaks maze se, pee raha hai jaane kaun

subah subah har roz vahin se, ugta hai suraj, koi shak nahi
kaunsi aisi saher mein dooba, andhera phir bhi hai jaane kaun

vo jo kho gaya ek pal mein, sadiyon se jo paa na saka
deewangi ko sar pe baandh ke, dhoond raha hai jaane kaun

meri hi tarah dard mein dooba, mere libaas mein kaun hai tu
koi baat chale to andaaza ho, zyadaa gum-geen hai jaane kaun

is dil pe itne patthar hai pade, ke dil hi patthar ka ho chala
in zakhmo ka ilaaj bhi hota, par, marham chura le gaya jaane kaun

vo hai jaise aina mera, aur main uska hi aks hua
mere hi andar rehta hai, mujh jaisa hi jaane kaun

haathon mein laqirein hain phir bhi, taqdeer kyu naraaz hai
meri mukaddar se dushmani ki saazish kar gaya jaane kaun

For my Hindi Readers:

खुशनुमा आंखो के भीतर, छुपि नमि पेहचाने कौन
ज़ाहिर खुशि हर कोइ जाने, दिल में दर्द है जाने कौन

रात और दिन बस येहि सिलसिला, कौन सहि है कौन गलत
लम्हा लम्हा टूट टूट कर, खत्म हो रहा जाने कौन

धीमे धीमे पिघलते हुए, अरमानों के शफ़्फ़क ये जाम
गुमशुदा कोइ शख्स मज़े से, पी रहा है जाने कौन

सुबह सुबह हर रोज़ वहिं से, उगता है सुरज, कोइ शक नहि
कौनसि ऐसि सेहेर मेन डूबा, अंधेरा फिर भि है जाने कौन

वो जो खो गया एक पल में, सदियों से जो पा ना सका
दीवनगी को सर पे बांध के, ढूंड रहा है जाने कौन

मेरि हि तरह दर्द मेन डूबा, मेरे लिबास में कौन है तु
कोइ बात चले तो अनदाज़ा हो, ज़्यादा गम-गीन है जाने कौन

इस दिल पे इतने पथ्थर है पडे, के दिल हि पथ्थर का हो चला
इन ज़ख्मों का इलाज भि होता, पर, मरहम चुरा ले गया जाने कौन

वो है जैसे आईना मेरा, और मैं उसका हि अकस हुअ
मेरे हि अंदर रेहता है, मुझ जैसा हि जाने कौन

हाथों में लकिरें हैं फिर भि, तकदीर क्युं नाराज़ है
मेरि मुकद्दर से दुश्मनि कि साज़िश कर गया जाने कौन

Ek Dost

Posted by shiwuz on November 3, 2009

ekdostthaEk Dost tha mera apna sa
Kuch begaani baaton se wo khafa ho gaya
Na usne, na maine kuch kaha
Waqt guzarta raha aur wo juda ho gaya

Ek maasumiyat thi jo hamein baandhey rakhi thi
Baarisho mein jab bheega karte thae saath saath
Ek barsaat mein saans kuch ruk si gayi
Dil dhadka fir toh jawaa ho gaya

Sardiyo mein jab mila karte thae nukkad par
Jhapat kar gale lag jaati thi uskae
Ek dafaa saanso ki garmi chhoo gai
Toh chehra ye sharam se pheeka ho gaya

Ladta tha mujhse wo
Jhagadta tha, kabhi hass padta tha
Din bhar buss usi se batiyaati rehti mein
Baato baato mein jaane kab pyar ho gaya

Din kat te gaye aur raatein dhalti gai
Doori gumshuda aur nazdiki badhti gai
Usae toh shaayad pata bhi nahi tha
Yaar hi tha wo mera jo phir dildar ho gaya

Mein hi nahi thi yun chanchal lekin
Dil to uska bhi machal raha tha
Chhupana to usae khoob aaya
Bohot der ho gai jab mujhe pata chal gaya

“Kaash mujhe khabar hoti
Toh yun dur na hone deti tumhein
Kahaan gayi wo maasumiyat
Kyu apna milna bura ho gaya?

Ek tu hi to tha mera apna sa
In dilo kay bawandar mein kyun khafa ho gaya
Na tune mujhe, na maine tujhe roka
Waqt guzar gaya aur tu judaa ho gaya.”


For My Hindi readers:

एक दोस्त था मेरा अपना सा
कुछ बेगानी बातों से वो खफ़ा हो गया
ना उसने, ना मैने कुछ कहा
वक्त गुज़रता रहा और वो जुदा हो गया

एक मासुमियत थि जो हमें बांधे रखी थि
बारिशो में जब भीगा करते थै साथ साथ
एक बरसात में सांस कुच रुक सी गयी
दिल धदका फ़िर तो जवां हो गया

लडता था मुझसे
वो झगडता था, कभि हस पडता था
दिन भर बस उसि से बतियाति रेहती में
बातो बातो में जाने कब प्यार हो गया

सरदियो मेन जब मिला करते थै नुक्कड पर
झपट कर गले लग जाति थि उसके
एक दफ़ा सांसो कि गरमि छू गयी
तो चेहरा ये शरम से फीका हो गया

दिन कट ते गये और रातें ढलति गयी
दूरि गुमशुदा और नज़दिकि बढति गयी
उसे तोह शायद पता भी नहिं था
यार हि था वो मेरा जो फिर दिलदार हो गया

मैं हि नहि थि युं चंचल लेकिन
दिल तो उसका भि मचल रहा था
छुपाना तो उसे खूब आया
बोहोत देर हो गयी जब मुझे पता चल गया

“काश मुझे खबर होति
तो युं दुर ना होने देति तुमहें
कहां गयी वो मासुमियत
कयु अपना मिलना बुरा हो गया?

एक तु हि तो था मेरा अपना सा
इन दिलों के बवनडर में कयुं खफ़ा हो गया
ना तुने मुझे, ना मैने तुझे रोका
वक्त गुज़र गया और तू जुदा हो गया।”

FORGiVE

Posted by shiwuz on August 27, 2009

FORGiVE
I was led by your nature
Or at least what you showed
The concern and care
That your actions bellowed

I trusted and believed
Whatever that you said
I thought you were for real
And gave up all I had

Yes, we started off quite alright
Whatever that we had
Until you leaked the farce
And showed off your real cad

Yes it hurt.
And it hurt quite a bit
When I finally gave up my woes
And declared we were illegit

After all,
I am but a human
I do re-live my wounds
Time and often

Today was such a day
And I decided to forgive you
And free MYself for ever
From the casts of this voodoo

You abused my innocence
Yes, you faltered my faith
I used to be a lover
There’s a reason why I hate. Read the rest of this entry »

Parchhaai

Posted by shiwuz on July 8, 2009

This little masterpiece is the creation of the same friend, who put together the lines of the previously posted ‘BaeNaam’… After I read it, I thought that my readers or rather my friend’s readers deserve to know who the person is, so I asked if it is okay for me to share the name… and my friend did something more creative again – left the decision to me!


parchhaai

jab woh nahi the to koi ehsaas nahi tha
kabhi koi shikve shikayat nahi the
koi gum or kuhshiyo ka saathi bhi nahi tha

phir aap ne kadam badhaaye ya humne thaamaa haath
kuch bhi yaad nahi kahaa se hui shuruaat
aapne baant li zindagi jaise, ho khushiya gum ke saath
ab to sirf parchhaai ban ke reh gaye hum aapke baad

It feels so good…

Posted by Viral Trivedi on June 25, 2009

It feels so good –

 When I see you looking so affectionately at me,

When I feel the warmth of – you holding me,

 

When I see how caringly you’re wiping my tears,

When I hear you talking your heart out to me,

 

When there is only LOVE everywhere…

Between the two of you and me,

 

When there is a divine smile on your face,

When there is real joy in your voice,

 

When happiness doesn’t depart as soon as it arrives,

And when nothing at all is wrong between us,          

…  It feels so very good

 

But,

When anything blissful like this happens,

– I KNOW IT’S ONLY A DREAM

“When we don’t talk…”

Posted by Viral Trivedi on May 25, 2009

when we don't talk

When we’ve argued and had a dispute

When all our conversations have gone mute

When words stop birthing and thoughts don’t grow

You have no idea darling, I feel so poor and low

When there’s no chit-chat and talking between us

When a tiny little thing turns into such a big fuss

When we don’t talk, there’s no soothing noise

I wonder what to do, I have no choice

The wall turns pale and the furniture stares at me

Within our home, they’re witnesses of my misery

I feel so cruelled and helpless with everything around

When we’re constantly quarreling, but without a sound

My vision goes blurred and the sun fades away

My mind goes blank and dull goes the day

For days and nights, when our eyes don’t meet

Neither mornings, nor at evenings we greet

Lost is the love and emotions shattered

Only ashes we have, of all that mattered

We don’t even know of what went wrong

No, ya I know, nothing really went wrong…!

Then, why does it take such a long time…?

Is there no cure, no quick regime…?

Inside my heart, I bleed and suffer

Please for once, let your ego surrender

My heart, I feel is tied up tight

There’s so much sorrow and less delight

Why do you always, have to prolong and delay…?

Couldn’t you this time, refute my dismay…?

Am I the only one to break the ice forever…?

Don’t take me for granted baby, I can’t always pamper…!

O my love, I hope you will value

How much eternal, my love is for you

Pretending that I’m watching everything but you

I constantly gaze and steal glimpses of you

I wish for once you could reciprocate and be fair

To the labors I’ve always done in doing the repair

Don’t you care for the twinkle in my eye…?

That, for every little reason you easily let it die

I wish that some day you show some good concern

And realize that I’m waiting, this time it’s your turn

So come and hold me, make me cry out all my pain

Tell me honey that you’re sorry for being late again

Baby you don’t know, I’ll feel so nice and light

I’ll really say nothing but “it’s okay… it’s alright”

But again my love, when the next time this occurs

Please promise me, it’ll not be me who suffers

That you’ll not take too much of a wait time

Just assure me of that and I promise it’ll all be fine

Neither yours nor my heart should suffer and bleed

To make it beautiful, some promises are all we need

A promise to stay happy, a promise to be fair

A promise to love and a promise to care

But alas, right now I really feel so poor

We don’t talk; we don’t look at each other

My voice within is choking, I’m dying

Too much it seems, my soul is crying

I want it back and I want it like before

Nothing less than “that love”, and nothing more

Holding hands, when we sleep at nights

While we smile again and forget our fights

When we don’t talk, when I don’t hear your voice

I wonder, when again there will be reason to rejoice

It’s my only prayer, may good times soon return…!

May pain pass out and take a jolly turn…!

Let us again, recover the bliss

Let us again, share a goodnight kiss

And one more thing, I want to declare

That, I for you will always be there

And these feelings of mine, while I am narrating

I want you to know that I’ll continue waiting

So please my love, come back soon

Sit on my lap and watch the moon

And tomorrow there will be a brighter sunrise

Our days of courtship will once more reprise…!!!

Hiraas…

Posted by shiwuz on February 26, 2009

Ek sadak hai jo chalti jaati hai
Hamein apne ghar tak le aati hai
Waise toh woh har kadam saath rehti hai apne
Kabhi kisi mode pe bichhad jaati hai magar

Saath mai hai jo khet dur dur tak
Sach kahein to hai wo tanha zameen
Kahin kahin kuch paedo ki chhaao hai
Jiske chhoone se wo machal jaate hai aksar

Guzartey hain unn raahon se roz
Jo le chalti hai humein apne thikaane par
Gaur se dekhte hain jab unhe
Udaas aur sooni nazar aati hai aksar

Ek ye raah hai aur ek wo khet
Ek hai hum
Inme kaun tanha hai aur kaun soona
Hum tey nahi kar paate hai aksar

————————————————————————————-

For my Hindi readers:

एक सड़क है जो चलती जाती है
हमें अपने घर तक ले आती है
वैसे तो वो हर कदम साथ रहती है अपने
कभी किसी मोड पे बिछड़ जाती है मगर

साथ मे है जो खेत दूर दूर तक
सच कहें तो है वो तन्हा ज़मीन
कहीं कहीं कुछ पेड़ो की छाओ है
जिसके छूने से वो मचल जाते है अक्सर

गुज़रते हैं उन राहों से रोज़
जो ले चलती है हूमें अपने ठिकाने पर
गौर से देखते हैं जब उन्हे
उदास और सूनी नज़र आती है अक्सर

एक ये राह है और एक वो खेत
एक है हम
इनमे कौन तन्हा है और कौन सूना
हम तेय नही कर पाते है अक्सर

Online Trade Fairs – The Latest “HEY” Thing in Business Marketing & Sourcing

Posted by Viral Trivedi on January 20, 2009

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Foreword:

Agreeing to the unusual & dissimilar natures of this blog journal and that of the post below, this piece of writing is very much poles apart to what this blog has ever contained or may have ever been expected to enclose. However, I did not really have any better place than here to store this editorial which evolved into itself whilst my recent research on the said subject, for the company I work with. And then anyways, I thought, “why not publicize it rather than just storing”; let the information spread. Let there be learning. I thank all the readers who would spend the value of their time in reading through the lengthy perspective below, which is my personal opinion on the subject matter. Selected text from within the article has been published in a textile magazine. Feedback as well as critical comments shall see a kind welcome (not sure of how far would I acknowledge the same, due to the lazy syndrome that I’m affected by.J) …..

Online expos have rapidly created a niche for themselves and have impressed the business world with their identity remarkably evolving as “the generation next expos”. Promising to hold a great deal of lasting success, online trade fairs are an end-to-end delivery of business right on the desktop. These virtual avatars of their traditional versions are almost as similar in terms of the overall objective-set, but are on the internet medium and do extend for quite a longer stretch of time in comparison; a lot cost effective too, along with the bunch of other benefits which we’ll look at later. Hence, besides serving independently by itself as an individual setup for specific product lines and services, online trade fairs unconventionally serve to enhance the virtual aspect of, or digitize the existing physical conferences, exhibitions, business networking events, and trade shows. Dramatically, these virtual models are fast becoming the vital elements of cost-effective branding & marketing so as to offer a sophisticated though unconventional mode for efficient marshalling of company products and services.

Trade fairs in general, are organized gatherings of buyers and sellers established precisely to create an environment where the two sides can meet and establish communication for furthering their business objectives. Bringing together a community in an industry, to reach out to specific target audiences from either fronts i.e. the supplier and buyer, in an existing region and across the globe, online exhibitions cast a thorough platform for suppliers to market their products and solutions in the virtual community and serves as an information resource for visitors. This breeds a virtual resource to serve as the exclusively consolidated location where there are virtual exhibitor store-fronts, and archival materials like product catalogues, company profiles and perhaps, white papers, case studies etc. With all these marketing and informative tools together with this highly interactive medium of online trade shows, exhibitors and visitors can communicate online, conduct business networking with prospects, achieve branding and marketing ambitions, and review current trends, innovations and latest products or ideas, respectively. Everything is done online.

Online Exhibitions prepare a smooth foreground for offline business activities too. That said, online trade fairs act as functional consultants for companies and also help achieve their pre-sales objectives by way of accomplishing lead maturity to a great extent; also, mostly, closing of deals as well take place directly at the events. In this e-age when everything is going virtual and getting online… perhaps, it would be a primitive strategy now, to solely depend on just the offline task management for commerce and trade. Or, if that statement finds a less valuable place in the agreement process for some readers, it would be better to call it this way then … it would indeed be a modernized approach or let’s say up-to-the-mark strategy, to lay equal dependence on virtual activities too, like that as the online trade fairs, just by the side of offline activities. Gone are the past times and in today’s new times, new strategies, new methods have emerged to add up to the olden classics. No doubts, offline exhibitions are still a vast-positive deal, and they will continue to be so. However, online exhibitions are the new faces of their same offline counterparts. This trend of online exhibitions has raved up with the adoption of more online practices to organize events with a lot of better features, procreating good amount of benefits on the go. Unlike the offline world, online medium has its drawbacks of lacking in physical interaction, which includes a handshake or meeting face to face and hugging, for that matter. But it is also true that the absence of the possibility to greet and meet in that manner doesn’t stop business. One would not mind the bargain if it’s really coming at such reasonable bag of benefits, after all. Incidentally, the online world only aims at offering an upgradation to its offline counterpart, primarily. And hence, there lives no argument between the both. Instead, there is a mutual alliance amongst, as logically observed. And so, online trade fairs and the offline fairs go hand in hand, without invading an inch of each other’s areas.

And then, online trade fairs or the virtual exhibitions are not just all about full-fledge trade events alone. There also is a different shape of it; it is, “offering support and pre-launch aid to the offline exhibitions’. Now with this different spread, there is a silver lining on the classification of online trade fairs. To further explain this, let us consider a common practice of the exhibition industry. Going a little back in time to when there were no online trade fairs, there used to be some shortcomings. Like for example, as commented by the President of Reed Exhibitions Asia Pacific, Paul Beh, in the Reed China Beijing Summit, “You won’t say a toilet is fine when many people are queuing for it” (Source: http://www.tradedot.com/2008/12/29/the-future-of-exhibition/). The metaphor is indicative of the long queuing of visitors that used to be seen at offline exhibitions some time ago. That has been handled now with the help of online exhibitions and perhaps, some other tactics too. Trade Fair organizers as well as exhibitors and visitors of the event have reached to a level of quality consciousness. They don’t want this long queuing to annoy the smooth functioning of the event and thereby hampering the business objectives to whatever little extent it may be. Queuing is also a waste of time. Subsequently, the online counterpart of these offline exhibitions is a nice bargain to organize things well before the launch of event, as practiced by the exhibition organizers. Online exhibitions also conveniently serve the pre-purpose of summing up the leads and hence estimate the number of prospective buyers likely to visit the event.

Well, sufficient talks have been done of the amount of boost and support that online events can help their offline equivalents gain. Now coming back to the original topic of discussion, let us touch upon the functioning and benefits of online trade fairs. Covering the very current stroke of the whole world, “RECESSION”, when all businesses are affected of jeopardy, it demands of extreme care and thoughtfulness on expenditures. In these times, when spending after business generation endeavors is a key concern and marketing budgets are critical, it becomes very important to plan investments wisely. When the times are tough today and companies have to closely watch their expenditures and take wiser decisions on business sourcing links, online trade fairs are becoming the most preferred medium. Online business fairs aka e-expos for sourcing and networking offer cost effectiveness, and are response driven along with the other value added provisions. On those lines, preliminary business payment outflows cannot be completely disregarded and has to be continued. But that outflow has to be done prudently. And so, investing into online business activities is more promising to secure profit margins by curbing the investments and keeping the earnings assured. Investment in terms of trust and economically cost effective amounts on virtual exhibitions would be a wise decision.

To understand briefly the entire process of what happens in case of online exhibitions, let us look at the take on proceedings. For an online exhibition catering to a specific industry sector, the organizers (like www.fibre2fashion.com) build an event website for the view of exhibitors and visitors. There, these two entities (exhibitors and visitors) who will participate in the event get to learn about the event info and other specifications. Exhibitors are invited for registration and payment. Exhibitors register and pay the amount to acquire their exhibition stalls. Organizers like fibre2fashion study exhibitors’ company profiles and product lines. On basis of lead maturity models, business matching is done instantly to scout for specific potential buyers for specific exhibitors. On launch of the event, buyers are invited to visit different exhibitors’ stalls and communicate. Ongoing, buyer profiles and enquiries are handled and recorded immaculately to distribute them evenly to matching suppliers from within the event exhibitors. Buyers are able to download supplier catalogues to study and contact them. Likewise, exhibitors are able to respond to buying enquiries ongoing as well as later. After continuing mutual communications online and then offline, the buyers and suppliers reach to the stage of productivity in the demand and supply order. At the end of the online fair, a comprehensive buyers’ and supplier’s guide is prepared to be distributed across the board of exhibitors and others for future business references. Thanks to online exhibitions.

One more thing, online exhibitions are all about generating business opportunities simply sitting on computers. In such an arrangement, one has the leverage of not even needing to leave offices especially during the difficult times when physical traveling has become costlier as well as risky. All that is required to be done is to understand how effectively online exhibitions can enable communication with potential customers and target an evenly larger audience that is central to one’s business. Be it branding or direct/indirect business sourcing and networking, online exhibitions offer virtual tools to add to or to substitute participation in offline exhibitions and can certainly help in the process of achieving business objectives; that, barring some businesses or products and services.

Earlier it used to be, or it may still be a worry for the offline trade show organizers that their online counterparts, the virtual exhibitions might completely substitute the former models. However, people’s understanding about it is changing and now online expos have clearly begun to be viewed as supplements or complements to the live physical events. Conceptually, both are alike. They are gatherings of buyers and sellers. Today, when the global meltdown is a major knock on the world business, an era of worry has been launched, when exhibitors and visitors appear to be less interested in devoting as much time and money. Hence, the stand of online exhibitions has ever more become practicable. After all, “returns” is what matters. And with virtual trade shows, the returns are sure shot to mobilize more mileage in terms of greater lead generation capacity, bigger global reach, and extensively longer duration. All of this, at an even lesser comparative cost, attached therewith a bunch of many more beneficial features. With internet being the medium here, the capacity to draw greater number of audiences which again is target specific, increases promisingly. A maximum of online exhibitions offer a replica of the offline exhibit floor just like at the offline trade shows. However, depending on the style of organizer and demand of the nature of industry sector, there are also simple forms of virtual exhibitions with the most simplistic company listings, product images, videos, and chat interface to extra sophisticated ones embracing people icons and even meeting rooms.

For example, my employer, www.fibre2fashion.com (whom I highly respect and think highly of), which is the world’s largest online B2B vertical, hosts online expos for its clients from various sectors from within the textile-apparel-fashion and allied industries. Fibre2fashion has kept the format of their virtual expos as simple as possible owing to the less hi-fi requisitions of that industry and its clients. Fibre2fashion offers a host of various other products and services and has recently begun with the online exhibition concept. In fibre2fashion’s online supplements, there is an online environment, just a replica of the physical trade shows, which goes online and stays online for the specified period of time, a month or more. Creating a niche for like-natured exhibitors and visitors to come on board and do business, these online expos run 24/7, letting them to connect with several others for mutual business goals without travel, extraditing the geographical constraints to exchange valuable information, etc. Celebrated as one of the most promising tools for generation of a quantum of qualified leads, these virtual trade fairs offer the required platform for business entities to come together in attendance from their individual desktops, to view online product presentations, chat and raise enquiries, and arrange for further meets or directly finalize business deals.

Moreover, trade expos on the internet also let entry to exhibitors with limitations of funds and/or locomotion. They could also offer to let participate willing exhibitors in the event if they could never participate in similar live events due to xyz reasons including natural, business, or geographical reasons. Online exhibitions are booming with the response as received from suppliers as well as buyers. However, one important point to be carefully understood is that these virtual models of their physical counterparts are not a competitive threat, but are just coming up as to provide a choice for what type of environment do the participants want, to display and view products, to attend or exhibit, given the positive and convenient factors against their existing limitations. Virtual exhibitions are not jeopardy but an appendage to the offline trade fairs in progressing towards enabling global business ambitions; they are the modern marketing vehicles to suit to the changing appetite of the business world, today. Without a doubt, online exhibitions are the new age cinematic representations parallel to their offline versions. As well, these “generation next expos” have gone forward to a point where anything and everything that can be done in a regular traditional trade fair can be done at the online floor.

nothing is in place

Posted by shiwuz on December 5, 2008

india-flag

And I watch from afar
As they rape my land
As they shed my blood
On HER aureate sand

They told me a story
Of a few armed men
Who caused catastrophes
And split HER in strands

They are smart and committed
And organized and learned
Tho’ I’m not alone
But my leaders are wretched

And there are many like me
Who wish they could do-
Do that something
’Bout the dejection that has accrued

I have heard the same story
Again and again
And I’ve stayed silent
And bore all the pain

But it hurts
To feel that I can’t
Do about anything
But complain and vent

I watch again,
HER crimson face
HER tears moist my eyes
How they beg for peace

How can I save HER, what can I do
I think
I am just a bloody no one
And again, I think?

Bewafa Bar Mein

Posted by shiwuz on September 18, 2008

I know its been a while since I posted something, but it hasn’t really bean a while that I wrote something. Infact, in the 10 years that I have been writing since, the max I’ve ever taken to write any poem has been about 45 minutes… but this one, this one has taken the most time I’ve ever spent on a single poem, almost about a month.

Why? I don’t know, may be what I felt was too complicated and may be what I felt, I never felt before! And even after I took all this time to write it I don’t know if I have accomplished what I aspired to! May be you can tell me, may be you understand it more than I do… May be, who knows?!

To read the poem, please click on the image, and then click once again to zoom into it… sorry for the trouble, but I could not find a better way to lay it out…

The day of a patriotic ME

Posted by shiwuz on August 15, 2008

Its not everyday that I take all my time to show my patriotism… but today, on our Independence day, that sleeping part of me, generally wakes up wide and tells me how I am so indifferent to it, blames me for sleeping all the year long, and waiting for this one day to do something, say something or write something!

And I bet that is not just me, its almost the entire Indian Youth! And to an extent its a shame! Do we really need a day to realize our duties towards our country?

Well anyways, the last thing I want to do is let this opportunity pass, and before that would happen… I figured I would express, how proud it makes me feel, every time I happen to say, I AM AN INDIAN!!

AJ and I were up late last night finding pictures that would describe my dear motherland the best, we got a few but any number would never be enough!
Though no picture could ever speak, some of these here tell stories, stories that you would narrate to yourself, stories that you live everyday, stories that you believe in, and all these are – stories about INDIA…

Also, I am embedding a video here, which again reminds me of the national integrity that we always talk about. As a small reminder to everyone who is missing the point…

“United we stood and we will stand, Divided we fell and we will fall!”

HAIL the the NATION who has given a richness of heart to all those who touched her sand…

(Its the cruelty of destiny that today I am away from India, but I guess it was necessary too, to make me realize HER worth!)

Vande Mataram!

Footprints

Posted by shiwuz on August 3, 2008

This may not be the first time I quote what my brother always says… ‘Appreciation is a writer’s biggest inspiration’… and I feel it, always! Yes it does give me feeling of strength, pride and all them good things… but most important, it inspires me to write, more and better…

This one is for one of those friends. I had no clue that he knew about my blog, and not just that – my friend has been a regular reader, and not just that, my next article is waited upon too!! Flattering of course! And I think – there may be many more like him, and may be not…

Again, the intentions are mostly to make sure I am not giving up on one of my favorite things – write! So here I write again, put together a few thoughts, hopefully they do what they always do!

All steps don’t leave footprints

Sometimes we walk just too light
Or maybe on the shores that are washed away every night

Not knowing that we touch the sand
To leave the impressions- those are highly volatile
That’s maybe how I also touched your hand
Aah those memories, I wish they, too, were fragile

So that whenever I would touch them
They would break up into pieces
And if I ever wanted to go back
There would be no sign or no traces

How I wish my heart was like the sand on a beach
No one could have ever marred
How I wish my heart was out of your reach
My happiness, you could have never barred

Oh though, you must know this
Your going away does not bother me
More so, I shall say I often pity you
For the truth that you could never see

And my tears, salted as the mighty sea
Have washed it all away,
Yes, I have gotten over you
Good thing I chose not to stay!

Yes I pity you,
How you failed yourself
I hope you get to feel now
What you have never felt

May Be – all steps do leave footprints
When you walk along the wet shores of a sea
Tho’ the waters do come to wash them
If they were not meant to be

Haalat-e-Qalb

Posted by shiwuz on July 24, 2008

Chahne wale hai hamare jo,
Baenaam rehna chahte hai humse
Jinke khayalo ki hum kadr karte hai,

Bayaan karne se katraate hai wo

Arz karna shuru kiye hai hum jo,
Haalat-e-qalb zikar kar hi dete hai
Kabhi kabhi to khuda ki bandagi ko bhi,
Naajayaz karaar farmaate hai wo

Guftugu karte the humse jo,
Mamnoon adaa karte the hamein
Ab to aksar aate hi,
Gumshuda ho jaate hai wo

Gul khaas lagte hai humein jo,
Wo milte nahin aas paas
Khilte hai yahi kahin jo,
Dil nahin behlaate hai wo aaj.

Tagged again! (this time inspirationally)

Posted by shiwuz on July 18, 2008

Nikhil had tagged me long time ago, but it was now that I was just reading through my comments and I realized that I had been tagged! I was a little inadvertent to tags, not because of any disinterest towards them, but because of ignorance about the whole idea of tagging!

To me it just means that someone trusts that I may come up with something at least readable to (maybe) conform their expectations from me!

Sorry Nik, again I’ve no excuses for the very late outcome of your kind effort to invoke the inspiration in me. But I believe you believe that its ‘better late then never!’

So I am inspirationally tagged! What’s my inspiration? Hmm, interesting question.

But before that, is there just one inspiration that a writer or poet could have? Inspiration – its debatable if all inspirations are real or fictitious.

Here, I have to mention a SONG that inspires me, but there are different facets to that as well, which add to my spontaneously accomplished state of confusion. I know a few songs that do, but is it the music, is it the lyrics, is it the rhythm, is it the voice of the artist? What is in that song that inspires me?

I had to think a bit… and I came up with a few…

But before that, I will mention the one I decided has it all…

“Tom’s Diner” by Suzanne Vega

I have no explanation of course, or no justification, as to why I pick that one song.

There is something about it, undoubtedly!

Few other I like are:

A new day has come

Careless Whispers

Frozen

Ae Ajnabi

Purani Jeans

Tanha Dil

I know, this may overwrite the rules of the tag, of ONE SONG, but there are always lee ways and exceptions… and then I can’t be disloyal to these other songs that inspire me either!

And I have to pass it on to 5 people, now that’s the toughest part!

Okay I at last managed… Here goes my tag… Rajesh, Viral, Sea Of Memories, Deeps, Rahul

Departure

Posted by shiwuz on June 26, 2008

And with a grief of parting with the old
I left my land with choices and compulsions
With an excitement to meet the new
I travelled miles in thousands

I met new people and I made new friends
I changed my ways and accepted new trends
But when I turn around and look back at the years
I feel like I got too far,
May be I need a second chance

Today, Someone –

Someone who’s been a mentor and a friend
Someone who I cherished the company of
Someone who I knew cared for me
Someone who I cared for

Today, Back on my mother land
That ‘someone’ passed away
I knew that I was guilty
Yes, I was just too far away!

Scanning thru the miles
I’d travelled thru these years
I recalled the time we spent
And I confronted my fears

I knew somewhere back in my mind
When I had decided to move on
That once in my life a time will come
When I’ll repent that I moved on.

I wish I stayed a little longer,
With that someone I had lost
I wish I’d built my house right there
On the roads at which we crossed

This aint the first time either,
I do have lost a lot
More and more I wish I stayed back
More often than not…

In the memory of my uncle and nephew-
Peace be, to thy great Soul!

BaeNaam

Posted by shiwuz on June 10, 2008

As soon as you think of someone, the whole definition of that person gets titled by ‘the name’ of that person. So many people have the same name, yet so unique – and different from their co-name folks – different to people close to them! ‘Name’ which if spelled or said incorrectly, most of us would take offense to! And yet some others who say while shrugging ‘What’s in the name, ehh?!’ A lot of times, people do sins anonymously, and yet more people perform the best deeds of their lives anonymously too! Anonymity – Is it a fear of recognition, or is it a humble gesture of giving without taking credit? I guess both in different cases… … Unique to individuals and not their ‘Name’!

I am not sure what my friend was feeling, when he decided he needed to detach the name apart from him, tho’ just for a small piece of time… He wrote this for my blog, and told me he wanted to post it anonymously… and when I read the poem, I was surprised – Anonymity being the topic of his write-up too!

Cheers my friend, cheers to you, and cheers to all of us – who have felt what YOU felt at one or more moments, more often than never…

—————————————————————————————-

Darr hai k thaes na lage kabhi humdardo ko
Isi liye baenaami se dard-e-dil bayaa karta hun

Aek uljhan si ho geyi hai yeh zindagi
Jise sirhane talae chupa kar soye jaata hun

Yaaron ki mehfilo mai eak muskurahat ke saath
Baegaano ki tarah paimane piye jaata hun

Jab koi kehta hai k dil ki suno
Tab zeher si zuba bayaa kiye jaata hun

Koi kehta hai ke dimaag se kaam lo
To berukhi se kai dilo ko todae jaata hun

Dekhe hue khwaabo ko such karey ki talaash hai
Shayad ise liye hakikat se khud ko churaye jaata hun

Chod k yeh dil aur dimaag k kashmakash bhare taey khaane
Sochta hun k chhin lu usse apne aap k liye
Phir har subah apni yeh zindagi apno ke liye jiye jaata hun

Anuranan… Resonance… Vibration… Spandan

Posted by shiwuz on June 1, 2008

I was watching today, a movie i had never heard of before – Anuranan.

As each day goes, I am getting more and more absorbed into artful works of different kinds. Be it superior writing, painting, acting or thinking. As a result of that, I have become very fond of Rahul Bose lately. I have been watching his movies for the past couple days – Chameli and then Anuranan – and I see the consistency that he has, as an actor, as a performer, as a character, and to me – even as a person! Anuranan – starring Rahul Bose was captivating enough to make me watch the movie and then the name of it intrigued me even more.

No I am not writing a movie review – I am trying to share something I learnt from it. A line that fell on my ears and travelled straight thru my within, and may be i think gave me a new perspective of looking towards things, and analyzing my own behaviors. A line originally by Sir Rabindranath Tagore –

“IT IS THE HARDEST TO RETURN” – He said.

Returned here was referrring to going back, going back where you started, going back to the origin, going back to the roots.

And I pondered, is it true? After some quakes and spumes that were aroused in my thinking process, I was convinced – It is true! Certainly.

The movie overall was good, very low keyed, some may even call it un-real… but it touched me in someway.
Some such way that I do not know how, where and why? It just touched me deep within…

Rahul – just one more addition to your list of fans =)

Keep enlightening!

“ULJHAN”

Posted by shiwuz on May 26, 2008

Its 2:32 am, and I am not sure if I should call it 2:32 in the morning or 2:32 at night!

And why am I blogging at this awkward time?

AJ and I are just over with the longest silence we ever have had between us. And we both agreed to a point that it was no fun without the noise!

All this time, I thought that my scripts were entertaining…

But ever since my brother started writing, I felt that I should quit…

I wasn’t even close to being a rookie when I read his pieces…

But then I regained some strength, and put in some efforts to continue writing, but just today, I got this big blow right on my face which reminded me that I should really quit writing! The blow? It was from AJ, and it was actually a good one, the kind I would take lovingly at any given point of time.

The weather was good throughout the day, and later in the evening it got a bit cold. So I was kind of nagging, that we should go home… (we were in the ‘all-summer’ mood, until I gave up on the falling temperature)

Right then, AJ told me these few lines, which his mind built up, during the silence between us that I earlier mentioned of…

And I was so touched and taken by his thoughtfulness; I sincerely thought that my feelings were shallow and that my words did not even exist before his… I surrender with pride, and I surrender with respect for my conqueror!

The following lines, especially coming from ‘his’ thoughts, is what set me aback, and I noticed my self jaw-dropped, by the time he completed the last line! And once again, I thought that I should quit writing!

A magnificent work of art, direct dil-se!

(AJ, I love you more and more every time I think that I love you!)

Zarurat se kuch kam hone ki main sazaa paa rahaa hoon

Rishto aur rakam mein, main uljha jaa raha hoon

Maut Kishto mein mil rahi hai

Use Zindagi se main chuka raha hoon

Teri chuppi aur meri ankahi

Sannato se shunya ki taraf jaa rahaa hoon

Zarurat se kuch kam hone ki main sazaa paa rahaa hoon

Rishto aur rakam mein, main uljha jaa raha hoon

Mera to gum badalta rehta hai

Posted by Viral Trivedi on May 2, 2008

 

Ik ik saans ke saath,

Vaqt karvat badalta rehta hai..

 

Kuch naye rishto ke aage,

Ek purana rishta rang badalta rehta hai

 

Vo jo dil ko azeez hua karta tha kabhi,

Ab roz mere aage chehre badalta rehta hai

 

Yaari utaar ke taang di usne kapdo samet

Vo yaaro ke jazbaat  badalta rehta hai

 

Uss rishte ki surat budhi ho gai fir bhi

Kyu vo aaine badalta rehta hai!

 

Yaadein to mit ne se rahi…

Zamaana badalta rehta hai

 

Vo raazdaar hi kya hoga

Jo humraaz badalta rehta hai

 

Haal-e-bayaan kar deta hoon jis se

Dil ka mahol badalta rehta hai

 

Chahta hoon, khud ko badal dalu

Jaise har shaks badalta rehta hai

 

Main gum nahi karta kisi baat par

Mera to gum badalta rehta hai

Aankhein

Posted by shiwuz on April 25, 2008

Jhalakte hai un aankho mein maikhaane kai baar

Chhalakte hai un aankho se paimaane kai hazaar

Panapte hai un aankho mein aashiq beqarar

Khilte hai unhe dekh kar ye gulshan ye gul-e-gulzar

Daras ko un aankho k taras jaati hoon mein

Karti rehti hoon har dum buss un aankho ka intezar

Ab to na soch baaki hai na samajh baaki hai mujhme

Kar jo nahi sakti mein un aankho ka ikhtiyaar

Hothon par sajte rehte hai aksar kuch tanha tanha naghme

Un aankho k bina ab aata hai na chein aur na hi karaar

Aawaam mein zaya karti hoon mein soone se ye lamhe

Un aankho k bina nindiya bhi aane se karti hai inkaar

Kabhie meri khabar na mile to kehna unko, wo padhle zara akhbaar

Wo jo na mile to nikla hoga kahin meri maut ka bhi ishtihaar

Ehsaas na tha…

Posted by shiwuz on April 22, 2008

Kaagaz par phir shabdo ki kuch lakirein hum khinch diye

Wo lakirein kiski k liye yaadon ki sarhad ban jayegi ye ehsaas na tha…

Mehsus kiya hai ik aisa bhi rishta

Jo naam se aage nikal gaya

Malum pada jab logo ko

Duniya ne usko kuchal diya

Wo rishta dheere dheere se duniya se ojhal hone lagaa

Dil mein to magar wo tabse hi naasur k jaise palne lagaa

Hamara ghaav unhe dard na de so ghaav hum andar hi dabaa liye

Wo ghaav hi phir hamare jeene ki wajah ban jaayega, ye ehsaas na tha…

Wo ghaav jo dabaa k rakkha tha

Hum marham uska bana liye

Phir halke halke malkar usko

Chaddar k taley hum chhupa liye

Wo marham dhire dhire se, chaddar me aise ghulne lagaa

Wo ghaav to akkhir roojh gaya, chaddar ka rang kuch udne lagaa

Gaur se usko dekha to phir, khud hi se hum mukar liye

Ek ghaav mitane wala marham, chaddar par daag sa ban jaayega ye ehsaas na tha…

Dil ka bojh halka karne hum kalam toh utha diye

Wahi kalam ka tez rukh kisike dil par katari ban jayega ye ehsaas na tha

Yaad…

Posted by shiwuz on April 20, 2008

Aapki yaad phir aati hai,

Par aane ke baad vo jaati to nahin

Kitna ye hamein rulaati hai,

Par aankho mein pani laati to nahin

Har kaam kuch kuch karte hain – kuch kuch nahin karte,

Ye dhadkan aapka naam bhulati jo nahin

Aap kya gaye hum to yu murjha gaye,

Koi bhi khushi dil ko behlati to nahin

Ye kya ho gaya hamein, kar baithe hum khud hi se dushmani,

Aapne kahin hamari raahein bhuladi to nahin

Thandi havaein jab chhoo jaati hai to lagta hai,

Kahin yaado ki aag phir jaladi to nahin

Idhar udhar dekh kar phir sochte hai,

Kahin kisine hamari kismat churali to nahin

Phir sochte hai sab kuch khuda pe chhod de,
Phir lagta hai kahin usse bhi hamari ye haalat ganvaari to nahin!

Phir sochte hai sab kuch khuda pe chhod de,
Phir lagta hai kahin ussey bhi hamari ye haalat ganvaari to nahin!

Kabhie…

Kabhie kahin koi din aisa aaye

Ki saanse chalti rahein aur waqt ruk jaaye

Kabhie kahin koi sagar kinare,

Pani behta rahein aur lehrein sookh jaaye

Ek aisi bhi kabhie shaam aaye

Jab suraj na doobe or chaand nikal aaye

Kabhie mujhe bhi kisise pyar ho

Aur meri deewangi mohobbat ki misaal ban jaaye

Kabhie kahin kisiko mein dekhti rahoon

Aur uski gehri aankho mein mera dil doob jaaye

Aur koi din chaahe aaye na aaye,

Bus ek aisa khoobsurat din zarur aaye

Jisme phulon ki mehek ho, Dharti ki goad ho,

Panchhiyo ki chehk ho, Taaron ki khoj ho,

Aur aahista se ye tann mann mere kudrat mein mil jaaye!

To A Lost Friend…

Posted by shiwuz on April 9, 2008

Sometimes, when people talk about friends, you always come to my mind and you always come to my heartfelt thoughts…

Sometimes when I hear some of your favorite songs, my eyes wet with
tears, and I look back thru the years…

Sometimes I cherish the times we spent together, and sometimes
I repent the mistakes we made…

Sometimes I think it was hard to find you, and then I realize it was the
hardest to let you go…

Do you never ever think of me?
Do you never cry like I do?
I know its been years, and people get over stuff,
But I cant, may be cuz you were an inseparable part of me…
Whether you believe it or not, I cant do anything to make you see,
How much and how much I do miss you!!

Tangled

Sometimes I get confused.

I try to live by this funda: live life king size. I believe that life is too short for any moment to be spent unhappy… whatever happens in life cannot be so bad that u forget to smile! And most of the times, I succeed in applying it to my own life.

And then some other things I come across leave me all baffled. I hear about how people suffer, and I fail to find reasons that would provide them the faintest smile in an entire lifetime.

What could someone have done to deserve all so many misfortunes at once?! What could have led them to do something as bad that made them deserve it?! Did they incur all those misdeeds in their right minds, or were they forced by circumstances to do it?

And I keep on thinking and I keep getting confused all over again and again…

How can God be so unfair to some people and yet so blissful on some others? Am I even rightful to blame God for anything at all…? Or is it the people who need to be blamed? And if they are to be blamed, why do they need to be blamed?

I apologize to anyone who reads it, if this leaves you confused! That has not been the intent, or may be I wish I could be more clear to myself then I would not have had to project this to beyond my within!

Being able to write this in all the expectable luxuries of life, sometimes I wonder. Do I have the right to be so comfortable, when many others strive to convince themselves that there must be some fairness in this life that gets harsher with each passing breath? Or even if I do not have that right, why not?

Sometimes, tears roll down my eyes… making me feel helpless and hopeless! What can I do to solve this confusion and get some peace of mind? What can I do to make myself not feel guilty about the conditions of my other people?!

Apart by no more than six degrees of separation in theory, all so close and yet all so different, sometimes I get confused!
