You never know what's going to happen



“I knew at an early age I wanted to act. Acting was always easy for me. I don't believe in predestination, but I do believe that once you get where ever it is you are going, that is where you were going to be. Was I always going to be here? No I was not. I was going to be homeless at one time, a taxi driver, truck driver, or any kind of job that would get me a crust of bread. You never know what's going to happen.”

"भग्न स्वप्नाच्या तुकड्यांना कवटाळून बसण्यासाठी मनुष्य जन्माला आलेला नाही! मानवाचे मन केवळ भूतकाळाच्या साखळदंडांनी करकचून बांधून ठेवता येत नाही! त्याला भविष्याच्या गरूडपंखांचं वरदानही लाभलेलं आहे. एखाद स्वप्न पहाणं, ते फुलविणं आणि दुर्दैवानं ते स्वप्न जरी भंग पावलं तरी त्याच्या तुकड्यांवरून रक्ताळलेल्या पायांनी दुस-या स्वप्नामागनं धावणं, हा मानवी मनाचा धर्म आहे. मनुष्याच्या जीवनाला अर्थ येतो तो यामुळं! माणसाने ओठांशी नेलेला प्याला अनेकदा नियतीला पाहवत नाही.एखाद्या चेटकिणीसारखी ती अचानक प्रकट होते आणि क्षणार्धात तो प्याला भोवतालच्या धुळीत उडवून देते.

- वि. स. खांडेकर

मी फ़क्त श्रोता...

उसवलेल्या अन्तरंगाला शिवन्याचा यत्न तू केला
मी मात्र तुज्या धाग्यांच्या रंगावरून रुसलो
शिवाताना झालेल्या वेदानानी त्रासलो;
बाहुपाशात तुला घेण्या एइवजी;
स्वतः च्याच सुखा-दुखाना कवट'-आलून' बसलो.

खर सांगू...
चुक तुझीच होती.
तू घातलेली फुंकर आठवते?
तिने मी सुखावलो,हरखलो...खर तर माजलो.
तो माज..
उन्मत्त चान्दंयांचा; अमावस्येच्या तिमिरातुन चंद्राच्या कृपेने बाहेर आलेल्या.
ते सुख...
प्रशांत समुद्राचे; भरतीच्या वेदनेतून चंद्राच्या अस्तामुले' सुटलेल.
तो हरखलेला मी...
निर्मल सरितेसारखा;चंद्राच्या केवल असण्याने सुंदर झालेली.

मी चांदनी की समुद्र की सरिता?
नाही कल्णार मला!

तुजा उदय, तुजा अस्त, तुझे केवळ असणे;
याच "माझ्या" व्याख्या!
तुज्या क्षमेचा मी याचक नाही,
तुझ्या संत वचनांचा मी वचकहि नाही;

मी फ़क्त श्रोता...
तुझ्या गल्यातिल सप्त सुरांचा;
श्रवण ज्याचे माझे अंत-रंग...पुन्हा उसवते.

-प्रवीण लुलेकर.

Smile

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

composed by Charlie Chaplin

Jalnyatahi Sukh Ahe...

When I used to see my father who is uneducated and was just a peasant,I used to think that he is a man who did nothing in his life, he never did anything for his wife or for his children apart from providing basic needs of 21th century to survive. He was a child when his aunt took him to her house to help her with housework,and he grew up with providing service to her,and he knew very less about external practical world,he just knew how to protect his beliefs,and he did till now.

I see him taking all care of my grandpa(his aunt's husband) during his old age without any expectation of returns.Once upon a time he used to work in the factory near by in shifts (I never knew about his work profile ;he is now retied)and use to travel 10 mile on bicycle daily. He did well in his life he completed my education till engineering.But I never paid real returns to him neither in the form of love nor in the form of homage.

But when I read this poem again after so many years; during which I suffered from lot of mental panic, suffered love,suffered loneliness...then I understood some part of it.
Poet often write the thing which could inspire or define ideas of diverse minds.


Jalnyatahi Sukh Ahe...

Jalnyatahi Sukh Ahe Jvalantun Fulnyache
Dhalanyatahi Guja Ahe Hit Antim Kalnyache

Stravanyacha Var Bhete Jalnarya Adharala
Hrudayicha Har Bhete Dhalalelya Padarala

Padnarya Gati Labhe Apulyatach Chadhanyachi
Kadhanarya Yuti Labhe Rati Vachun Budanyachi

Jalato Me, Dhalasi Tu Aavhanit Aarnala
Amaracha Alita Sukhi Apulya Pan Charnala.

ॐ सः नाववतु

May God protect us both together.
May God nourish us together,
May we gain the energy to know the truth,
May our study together be filled with light,
May we not oppose each other,
om peace peace peace.
