kabhi kabhi use tanha bhi

Dear Friends,
I read this story and thought
"is it always the tongue of others which inspires to act ?"

We ourselves are nothing.?
Is there any role of heart in our actions?

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them
fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit
was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The
two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit
with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop,
that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took
heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down
and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again,
the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He
jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the
other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to
them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the
entire time.

This story teaches us that there is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging
word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it
through the day and a destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes
to kill them.

I think most of the time we do what is good and beneficial for us ,but is our life a business?
Allama Iqbal has rightly said:

what happened to me ?
I could not understand.26TH FEBRUARY was the busiest day.So many programmes at one time.Reunion at C I E ,Delhi University,the place where I learnt to know myself ,to believe in me ,to be what I am today .to laugh to cry ,to share to care.How can I miss the famous Basu Memorial lecture on this occasion I was waiting for.
MEETING with the members of Muslim Personal Law Board,the ladies who came from different corners of the Country,Kolkata,Hyderabad.Aligarh,Mumbai etc.My cell was ringing , I did not pick.Instead I sent sms "sorry ca'nt come."
but why ?
I had to put up the final list of selected students for admission before 5:00 pm, how can I be so irresponsible,I called for my office assistant and handed over the lists.
but why?
I started for the destination ,
On the way received a call that two children were found roaming in the lanes of shaheen bagh ,wearing school's T .shirts ,written HAMDARD PUBLIC SCHOOL.
A passer by brought them to the school.children were too small to tell their address and phone nos.
I rang to the guard to get the phone no and address from the office and call their parents.
but why?
why I was making so many arrangements to accomplish one task,
but was that a task?
I doubt.
There was a permanent conflict between mind and heart.
Should I go ,should I not?
I am a responsible post holder .First I have to settle down the things ?
"But........ by that time it will be too late."
My heart whispered......
WHAT HAPPENED ??????????????

WAIT TILL I REVEAL...............................

HERE IS A Touching life story.....

A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For
many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's
showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told
him that was all he wanted.

As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited
signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the
morning of his graduation his father called him into his private
study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine
son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son
a beautiful wrapped gift box.

Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man
opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible. Angrily,
he raised his voice at his father and said, "With all your money you
give me a Bible?" and stormed out of the house, leaving the holy

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in
He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his
father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He
had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make
arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had
passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He
needed to come home immediately and take care things.
When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and
regret filled his heart.

He began to search his father's important papers and
saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With
tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he
read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope
taped behind the Bible.
It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the
sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation,
and the words...PAID IN FULL.

How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not
packaged as we expected?

My Angel----------

Dear Friends,

I read these beautiful lines and my eyes were full of tears.Really what a great creation is mother ! The word mother is synonym of true and unconditional love.I lost my angel when I was still young ,Now who will protect me,console me and hold me while falling.She is with God Almighty.May her soul rests in peace.

once upon a time there was a child ready to be born. So one day he asked God: "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

God replied, "Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you."

"But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't do anything else but sing and smile, that's enough for me to be happy."

"Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. And you will feel your angel's love and be happy."

"And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me, if I don't know the language that men talk?"

"Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."

"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

"Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."

"I've heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?"

"Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life."

"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

"Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth could already be heard, and the child in a hurry asked softly:

"Oh God, if I am about to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

"Your angel's name is of no importance, you will call your angel: Mommy."

"The mind is everything: what you think, you become."
Gautam Budhdha has rightly said this.Right now in my bed room ,thinking that I am in my mother's lap.Now I can feel the warmth and tender touch of my mother's fingers.Although she is far away from me .she is at such place that it is impossible to come . I think she is just with me ,dictating me what to write on my Blog.
I am a small baby wearing printed frock and insisting to go out to play .she had held my hands tightly so that I didn't go out in the sun .oh 'I am unable to release my hands. Its paining.
I am a bride and this is Rukhsati time .My mother is crying and I am watching silently.My pillows are wet.She is really weeping.
Now I am standing near her bed .She is on her last journey .unable to converse with any one.She is leaving us . I have severe ache in my chest.Something is breaking.Something is leaving from my heart making an open space for pain to reside.
What to do .Everything is blank and black.Nothing is visible.
The bell rings .I am back to my normal routine.
I AM A MOTHER.A WIFE.A TEACHER .A PREACHER , A SISTER,A TRAINER ..............I am every thing what I think.

visit to Azeemabad /PATNA

The city of poets ,traditions and hospitality,Patna welcomed me whole heartedly on 24th December,2010.THERE WAS A CONFERENCE NAM ED 'SHAME - ILM"on 25th and 26th December. Thousands of ladies and men turned up to listen to their guests ,one from BOMBAY Mr Mubarak kapudi Saheb and another from Delhi,myself.The main focus was on the need of educational revolution in Muslim Community in both the speakers talks.The Education ,quality education,role of parents and society in bringing positive change through education etc were the main concerns.
I got the opportunity to visit two schools managed by minorities and have interaction with their teachers .It was very surprising to know that our friends are still following old methodology of rote memorization and rattafication.Less emphasis is paid to activity based learning and understanding the content.I conducted a workshop on "innovations in learning methodologies"The response from the teachers was very encouraging .They were keen to learn more and more.They brought forward their problems of lack of resources and non cooperation from the parents. The community can spend thousands and lakhs on small functions like,aqeeqa, khatna,bismillah,nashrah,birthday and many more, but can not spare money for educational learning materials.
Hundred years ago Sir Sayyad said that a man acquire all the qualities through education.Its true even for today.
Dear friends!
lets change our attitude toward education .lets give it the first priority.lets spend our money wisely .lets save money for our children's a teacher lets learn new and innovative techniques of teaching .Lets enhance our qualifications and develop our talents.
