Child, the future of mankind

Has its roots in the womb of the feminine divine Provides scope to the parents hope

But they will reap what they sow

His smile brings them happiness His tears make them cry

His presence makes them feel worthy His acts brings them nigh

His childhood days are always blooming While teenage is the time for grooming Adultage is the age of mystery

And old age repeats the history

If he is so much for his parents

And realises their endurance

What makes him turn the tables

And treat his parents no more than pebbles

This is not what they deserve Not for what they have preserved They demanded him in prayers Not to survive in hell and bear

He needs to know time repeats itself

Someday he will be a father himself Then what if his son repeats himself He will be shattered to pieces

Remember to worship your parents as God As they are your earthy Lords

A child is still a stem of a tree

And can never reach the roots until he bents

A learner at heart with 13 years of experience and still growing. From field experience to academic ambience, people interaction and exploring new ideas have been my area of interest and has proved to be stepping stone towards my achievements. Creativity is my core skill, be that vision to see the world or to work towards something aesthetically, creativity exists in everything. I am an academician by profession and the creativity is my passion. Academician: Shifting from advertising field to teaching advertising wasn't in my dreams but I must say it is one of the most challenging and coolest profession altogether. What keeps it ticking is to be with Young minds!! I have written research papers and got by books chapters published in the international books by international publications . Poet: I am a poet and got my poems published by Chandigarh Sahitya Akademi in Kavya Lehri and Kavyanjali. I also have an ebook to my credit titled 'Lyrical Emotions'. Writer(Blogger): A writer who loves writing and has written for numerous magazines, online portals and newspapers like Time of India(Youth section), The Identity, Contemporary Vibes, The Higher education, etc. A Blogger who runs her own blog. An artist who works towards improving her skills every now and then. A traveller who knows learning is much more outside the classroom. As a leaner is never satisfied with his/ her work, I believe to utilize the gift of human birth to the fullest and enjoy.
