Hope Is All We Can Do!

A virus so small,
All are now its thrall,
Trace of humans, not at all!
Even empty roads bawl,

All are locked at their home,
None is allowed to roam,
Migrants in form of dome,
Running back to their home.
Life makes everyone run,
Even if one has some fun.
Many can’t even buy bun,
Neither at night nor under sun!
People are now livid,
Tear-stained faces so rigid,
Nothing now is vivid,
Sadly, we live with COVID.
Laughed and stayed in groups,
Now away from troupes,
Tough to pass such time loops,
COVID neither breaks nor stoops.
Life has now become hollow,
Uncertainty to swallow,
To live and see tomorrow,

Self-isolation– one must follow.

Sanitizing is important,
To fight against this militant,
One must commit at the instant,
To defeat this dicey mutant.
All things are closed – school and mall,
As this virus still stands tall!
“Together we stand – divided we fall”,
People must know just these all.

Everyone needs to have nerve,
Not just to stand and observe,
But to care others and serve,
This is what the poor deserve.
Many are already dead,
Several are sick on bed,
Even more is going to spread,
People are praying in dread.
This deadly virus is ghost,
Prayers will never be lost,

Hope is required the most,
Optimism at any cost.

This darkness will turn bright,
Everything will be alright,
Let’s hope and hold on tight,
And fight with all our might!

-Ava Tripathy.

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.

A Letter To The Monster🎭

Photo by David Fagundes from Pexels

Dear Anger,

I don’t know why you love me so much,
My soul hates when you touch.
Why don’t you leave me alone,
Words by you hurts more than breaking bone.
You make me feel wrong,
Whenever you say you will make me strong.
My mind is not where you belong,
You need to end like a song.

With you comes frustration and pain,
You tie us both with chain,
Controlling you causes my energy drain.
When you come I’m no more sane,
All my requests to you go in vain,
Heart stops and you control my brain
By doing this what do you gain?
I won’t let you control me again!

When you go,
Realization comes to me slow
How to apologize, I don’t know,
I only have a guilty face to show.
For the pain caused by you,
I never know what to do,
But I can’t keep you and ego above,
Than the people whom I love.

I don’t know why I listen to you,
Why I accept the things you make me do,
You always come out of blue,
We are not same I’ll prove that to you.
You are a monster in me,
Now that I can clearly see,
I won’t forcefully with you agree,
I will fight and make myself free!


Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.

Our Father Our Hero!

Photo by Tatiana Syrikova from Pexels

Only a father a dad,
But he gives his all,
Not letting us fall,
Making a smooth way,
For his children small.

He struggles for us,
Each and every day,
To support us in everyway,
Pushing his frustrations all away,
He has no complains to say.

Fathers are so important,
It’s true just not a gossip or rife,
They stand with us all our life,
Even through all our problems and strife,
They never use words as knife.

First love first friend,
Everything first is our dad,
At him we sometimes get mad,
He accepts with all patience he had,
Making him gloomy and sad.

These are some lines,
For them I pen,
Only a dad, but best of men,
Without Father no loss no gain,
Every life we will meet again.

To all great dads out there,
It’s time for us to share,
You are the pillars of our life play,
I wish you all and pray,
A very Happy Father’s Day!!!

-Ava Tripathy.

“Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, storytellers and singers of song. A dad is someone who wants to catch you when you fall. Instead he picks you up, brushes you off and lets you try again.”

P.S:- A very Happy Father’s Day to all great and awesome dads out there!!!

Thanks For Reading 😊.

The Law Of Diminishing Gratitude❌

Hey everyone, today I am going to share a short story with you all about a hunter which I had recently heard.

There once was a very successful hunter that was well known across the whole kingdom. In the same kingdom, there was also a special species of deer that no one was able to catch. The king put out the biggest bounty there ever was for anyone that could bring at least one dear back dead or alive for him to mount as a trophy. The hunter decided to take up the king’s offer and before leaving on his quest stopped at the town square and loudly and mockingly as possible said “I’m grateful for this easy task. I really don’t understand how no one else could have caught this beast.”

The hunter went on his way tracking the deer. After two days of tracking, he suddenly realized that he lost his way deep inside the jungle. He used all his navigation skills but neither did he find any way out of the jungle nor could he find any food to eat for 8 days at a stretch. He started feeling so damn hungry that he could eat an entire elephant at one go. Disappointed, he lost all hope. And when he was ready to give up he suddenly noticed an apple tree. He collected as many apples as he could carry to feed him for the rest of his search.

As he ate the 1st apple, his joy knew no bounds and he just couldn’t stop feeling grateful and blessed. He thanked life. He thanked God. He could not believe his luck when he ate the 1st apple but he was less grateful while having the 2nd apple and even less grateful when he had the 5th apple. Somehow, with each passing apple, the hunger wouldn’t go away and the joy kept on reducing drastically. When he started eating the 10th apple he felt disgusted and dropped all the remaining apples and continued with his quest for the uncatchable deer.

The 10th apple did not lack taste, it did not lack the potential to satisfy his hunger but the only thing lacking was his gratitude for finding food in the middle of the jungle.The 10th apple is as sweet as the first apple. If the 10th apple fails to give you as much pleasure as the first one, nothing is wrong with the apple, but with the person enjoying the fruit. If you get bored on a dull day, it is not because the day is dull and boring. It is because your gratitude has become dull and boring.

Ways To Have A Right Attitude Towards Gratitude.

  • It is necessary to count your blessings.
  • Try to invest yourself and your thoughts in positive things and move away from negativity.
  • Learn to focus on what you want and what you get.
  • You should start saying Thank you more often.
  • Learn not to grumble and use the word “IF” all the time-it only increases negativity and shows our lack of gratitude.
  • Have faith in your Lord.

We all strive everyday to be better and to have more. But there will be times in our lives when we should stop, take a look around and appreciate where we ended up until this very moment. Sometimes we get more than what we deserve and sometimes just the opposite. But in every way we should thank God for giving us the gift of life which is not always given to everyone. Remember that we are lucky enough to have a house which we can call home, we are lucky enough to have people who love us and whom we love around us and we are lucky enough to breath the air which is also a gift from the Lord. So, it’s time for us to be grateful for everything we possess and everything we have experienced. Stay humble and true to yourself. We should never let the ‘10th apple effect’ make us take our gifts of life for granted. We should promise that we will never let our gratitude for life fade away.

Unrequited Love💓

Photo by Jovana Nesic from Pexels

In your face,
I find myself.
Through your eyes,
I see myself.
I only have you in my heart and mind,
That dreams don’t even get a place!
I began to change,
The day I felt for you,
With each passing second,
I find myself closer to you.
How I don’t know,
My heart started moving towards you.
With you by my side,
Relief comes to my heart.
With each breath I wish you are with me,
You can only complete me,
The one I used to search,
You have become that lacking in me.
You came from no where,
Easily you walked through my heart,
You are the territory of my love.
You don’t know about my affection,
And I plan not to tell you,
I fear losing what I have.
I no longer recognize myself,
Every place, Every journey,
Everything you became,
Never did I know,
That my unrequited love for you,
Will never end!

-Ava Tripathy.

Her Trajectory🎀

Photo by Alina Vilchenko from Pexels

When your family was waiting and guessing,
You came to the world as a blessing.

While most of the people around you wanted you to be ‘HE’,
Your family was happy as you were made a proud ‘SHE’.

Being a little princess,everything around you was poured with pink
Sadly, these silly things were only what your parents could think!

From playing with dolls to listening stories of moon and stars,
Hardly, did anybody knew that you also liked playing with cars.

The society asked you to be soft, sensitive and fragile
But you were born to be bold, strong and agile!

You were forced to follow the so-called standard beauty trend,
As if not looking fair and flawless will make the world end!

Laughing at all this social fuss,
You realized beauty exists in all of us.

Everybody asked you to be graceful and homely to fit in the frame,
But the women leaders out there taught you how to ace the game.

From difficulty to ignore those annoying creepy chase,
To fighting the irritating male gaze,

Every day of a girl is an unwanted war,
But still you are out in the world shinning like a bright star!

Insecurities and doubts were hard to get over,
But you were strong enough not to let these disturb you ever.

You endure everything with silent sob and weep,
Still you stand tough as you made promises to keep.

You knew your self-esteem to you is so dear,
Then you realized your confidence is greater than your fear.

World kept mocking-saying you are only alive to wive,
But you decided to strive harder to thrive.

Keep your head held high, fearing none
Because girl you are strong to face the world alone!

Your story is still incomplete, ask your hopes to stay,
This end’s with me wishing you a very good day!

-Ava Tripathy.

The Underrated Judgement🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏽

“Don’t judge” is a common phrase which we all have heard of and we too also use it as a joke or an excuse, but the truth is that judgement is perceived as toxic and you can get the worst insult by being called judgemental. I have always been a bit disappointed with myself for being unable to meet the sublime ideal of not judging and control my thought process while interacting with people or general public.

  • When I see someone bold enough to argue with the teacher, I judge.
  • When I see a mother shouting at her 2 year old son, I judge.
  • When I see a rude man, I judge.
  • When I see a person yelling at his colleagues, I judge.
  • When someone cuts me off while speaking, I judge.

Not only me but these are only some out of many judgments which we humans make unintentionally or I can even say unqualified. I feel as much as people striving for non-judgemental ideal sounds appealing, it’s not something humanly possible. Ironically, I think making presumptions and assumption about something or someone is actually kind of normal unless they are toxic and can cause harm to somebody.But claiming that we are “not judging” is something absolutely absurd. We may all say that we are non-judgemental but the reality is something very different. We being humans tend to have our own opinions and make judgements when we witness different behaviors. Judgement is something which we desperately don’t want to face, but we ourselves cannot avoid judging because it’s obvious to human nature.

Open your mind to the world and the many different ways that can be found in it, before making hasty judgments of others. After all, the very same thing that you judge from where you are— may very well be something totally different in meaning on the other side of the world. The problem with making hasty judgments is that it will emphasize your ignorance at the end of the day.

Making judgements is okay, as it means reacting to people’s flaws with warmth and favor. But one should not rush to make negative assumptions and judge people today for the mistakes they made yesterday. Stop judging people by what you see,because you see what they want you to see.We cannot stop making judgements but we can minus the negative assumptions and focus on the positive one’s so that we all can have a positive environment to live. Judging the above situations in a positive way for example:-

  • Maybe that student is right about something that’s why she is opposing the teacher.
  • Maybe that mother is stressed due to sleepless nights or maybe she was handling all the tantrums of her son patiently for 98 times and what I saw was the 99th time when she lost her patience.
  • Maybe that man is having a bad day.
  • Maybe that person is under some pressure to complete a given work on time and his colleagues are not cooperating.
  • Maybe he what he wants to speak is important.

When they judge you, yawn.

When they misunderstand you, smile.

When they underestimate you, laugh.

When they condemn you, ignore.

When they envy you, rejoice.

When they oppose you, prevail.

Stay Safe, Happy and Positive Everyone……

Patient NATURE’S Fury🧡

No one is more tolerant than Mother NATURE,
She is the one who helps us nurture,
She is the background of every picture,
But we are some heartless creature.

Her body is slowly dying,
With the flowers in her hair drying,
Sky releases thunderous crying,
She caught us all lying.

We make her feel so dirty,
With us she is all sweet and hearty,
We act on our own liberty,
Still we can’t destroy her inner beauty.

She knows what is wrong and right,
All these days she is quite quiet,
Trying her best not to fight,
So that we could see the morning light.

Time will come when mother stands still,
Which will make us all ill,
Filled with life-less shrill,
Let’s ask for forgiveness on our own will.

All the tantrums and fuss we make,
Causes her heart to ache,
Life is not a piece of cake,
We should stop now for god’s sake!

She is our mother glory,
We should not cause pain to bury,
Or we will have to worry,
Because no one can escape NATURE’S fury!

– Ava Tripathy.

Your deepest roots are in nature.  No matter who you are, where you live, or what kind of life you lead, you remain irrevocably linked with the rest of creation.You didn’t come into this world.  You came out of it, like a wave from the ocean.  You are not a stranger here.

This year the eastern India is again going to suffer from a super cyclone Amphan. Last year cyclone Fani had destroyed the life of thousands of people. Homeless and depressed people were all round. Let’s just hope Amphan goes away without much harm done. The patience of our Mother Nature is slowly breaking, and not only we humans but also the innocent plants and animals are going to suffer from her fury. Hope, that people around the globe realise soon enough their mistakes and change their ways so that lives could be saved. Let’s be the first to take some initiative to save nature, What’s say?

Let’s pray that Cyclone Amphan doesn’t harm much life or property this year.

Stay Safe and Happy Everyone!!!

The HumGrum Brothers🌷

Humble is never sad but Grumble is always mad,
Humble is always happy causing Grumble to be dappy,
Humble is of moral nature but Grumble forms an immoral creature,
Humble is so meek, making Grumble look so weak.

You two brothers from the same mother,
How can you be so different from each other!!!
Humble is like a dove full of love, while Grumble is nothing like Humble.
Grumble you make your twin a winner, making yourself look like a sinner.

Why do you always frown making your brother take away the crown?
Why do you have to behave like a mental, when your twin is so gentle?
It’s time to make your mood to be good,
Or you won’t be able to explain when you stumble upon Humble one Day.

O Please Grumble be humble today,
Following your twin is a must or you will turn to dust!
And Humble never grumble, I pray
Or grumble will make you like Grumble one day!

Only if I knew Grumble and Humble are identical twins,
I won’t have dared to squeak or freak!!!
We should fear to let Grumble near,
Because he is a stranger full of danger.

-Ava Tripathy.

Thank you for Reading😊.

Wishing you a happy and great day ahead😊.

3 Things We Should All Stop Apologizing For🌕.

We’re wired to seek a sense of belonging, and we fear being ostracized from our tribe, so many of us lean toward excessive contrition and apologies to ensure we’re still in people’s good books.A weird feeling called “Guilt” is one of the major reason which makes people apologize a lot.There is always a right time and need for a meaningful and true apology,but honestly most of us find ourselves saying too much and too often “Sorry”.I have noticed that the most used word of my entire day is “Sorry”. I feel I should not apologize for most of the things I do,most importantly I should not apologize for being myself because that’s how I am!

Apologizing for the below 3 points is a complete no-no. I’ve decided to make an actual effort to limit my sorry’s-Wanna Join me?

Being Myself.

Honestly, I’m a very frank and straight-forward person,but recently I have noticed that I always keep on apologizing for my honest point of view because of the guilt of hurting someone by my words.If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years, it’s that my feelings are valid and they are mine alone.It’s always better to be straightforward than talking behind the back.I should never feel bad about expressing myself & my honest feelings.I should never back out from being myself,because my feelings are enough worthy to be expressed.There are of course ways to express those feelings correctly and maturely, but I know I should never have to apologize for the things that I am naturally feeling. Saying “Sorry” for being who I’m should not be a part of my vocabulary.I will not apologize anymore for the way I feel,but will definitely learn to express them in a much better manner.

“Never apologize for showing your feelings. When you do, you are apologizing for the truth.”

My Priorities & Ideologies.

I want to live a life I choose to,regardless of fitting in with other people’s norms.I should not apologize to anyone for being different from them.I have learned one thing after a long time-Making decisions about your own future,don’t do any harm to anyone.No-one should feel guilty about improving themselves or thinking about themselves first.I won’t apologize anymore for prioritizing certain things in my life and I know that I will be making mistakes in the long run but there will be no need of apologizing for the decisions I make.

“When your only regret is if anyone thinks you regret anything -that is the definition of conviction.”

My Appearance.

Last but not the least,I should never ever apologize for my looks.It’s often said “Never judge a book by it’s cover”,but still people often tend to judge others by their appearance.I apologize for my appearance very often and up until recently, because I realized that saying “Sorry” for how I look is hurting my self-confidence.If I am having messy hair or no make-up look then it’s my decision to be like that why should I apologize to anyone.I’m a human too, so it’s okay not to have a picture-perfect look all the time.I am growing to be more confident about my appearance(however I look) and have stopped apologizing for it.

“Apologizing does not always mean you’re wrong and the other person is right. It just means you value your relationship more than your ego.”

If you’re anything like me, you apologize far too often, and many a time, when you haven’t done anything wrong.We may also apologize because we’re highly sensitive to other people’s feelings, and we want to ensure we haven’t unintentionally caused them pain or trouble.It’s admirable to apologize when we’ve genuinely done something wrong, or even if we believe we inadvertently hurt someone else. But there are certain choices we need to know and own, and should never apologize for.

Stay Safe, Happy and Positive Everyone……
