“Grandma, please tell me story” A 5 years old boy asked to his grandmother, “You forgot yesterday also. Tell me now”Grandma looked into eyes of cute little boy, smiled and softly said,”Ok, listen…Once upon a time, there was an open swimming competition in one village. 
Participants have to swim from one side of the lack to another side. Total distance to swim was around 500meters and winning prize was Rs. 10,000/- which was so much for village people, around 20 years ago. But only hurdle in the competition was, there were crocodile family leaving there into the lake."Crocodiles?" boy surprisingly whispered."Yes dear" Grandma continue...
 At given time almost everyone gathered at lake and terrifyingly just before the race people saw Crocodile around the starting point. Everyone was scared; no one was ready to jump, no one want to win the race. Prize was 10,000/- but life is priceless. So finally, officially race started but no one tried to win the race, no one jumped …

Brink Of Eternity

Image
In desperate hope I go and search for her  in all the corners of my room;  I find her not. 
My house is small  and what once has gone from it can never be regained. 
But infinite is thy mansion, my lord,  and seeking her I have to come to thy door. 
I stand under the golden canopy of thine evening sky  and I lift my eager eyes to thy face. 
I have come to the brink of eternity from which nothing can vanish  no hope, no happiness, no vision of a face seen through tears. 
Oh, dip my emptied life into that ocean,  plunge it into the deepest fullness.  Let me for once feel that lost sweet touch  in the allness of the universe.
