Happy Father's Day

By Tajammul Kothari, published on Jun 21, 2016

Sometimes I call you daddy

Whenever I need to be treated like a child

Sometimes I call you Oh my Father

When I have done some mistake

Sometimes I call you Dear Dad

Whenever I am in need of help

And Sometimes I call you Hey Pops!!

Whenever I need a friend to share the good times

In all your different names, you still remain the same

Loving, caring and supporting.

Happy father’s day

An Ode To A Refugee

By Tajammul Kothari, published on May 23, 2016

Where do I go from here?

There is chaos all around

My country is torn apart

Sounds of gunfire lingers on

Gardens of death surrounds

Where do I go from here?

Loved ones been displaced

Coffers been rendered empty

My home has been broken down

Years of happiness been shattered in moments

Where do I go from here?

Have lost all there is in life

Only a hope prevails within me

That someone will welcome me with open arms

And treat me like one of its own

My heart is deeply sunken and I fearfully wonder

The Road

By Tajammul Kothari, published on Aug 9, 2015

A long winding road called life

In each and every turn there is a surprise

Bright paths to guide you aright or

Dark alleys that hinder your sight

Every step to be taken with care

But also believing that someone’s there

A companion that lights up your face

In the steep valley and in the narrow place

Keep in mind the passersby

And guide them through the turbulent times

Cross the bridges holding hands and

Support each other through the shaky tracts

Enjoy the moments until the journey ends

Without thinking... (more)

Just One Percent

By Tajammul Kothari, published on Nov 24, 2014

A lot of people wonder about the abject poverty surrounding some parts of the world and why some are endowed with extreme good health whilst others are plagued with life threatening illnesses. This leads them to question God’s intentions for this disparity.

But if one looks closely then God in his scheme of things wants the rich to grant some part of his wealth to the underprivileged. He expects every prosperous individual to contribute towards alleviating the miseries of its fellow beings.

Generally speaking, most of mankind do yearn to aid the less fortunate but are either too... (more)

Politically Motivated

By Tajammul Kothari, published on Sep 23, 2014

Politicians, in general are despised all around the world. They are looked upon as unwanted individuals who have no sense of governance or conscious and are busy doing things for their own selfish needs.

Politics is regarded as such a dirty profession that the word ‘Politician’ is often used as a cuss word. But if one looks closely; politics is everywhere and all individuals indulge in politics in way or another. Many of us, knowingly or unknowingly act like politicians; devising schemes to gain power whether in the work place, household, clubs or societies.

Similar to politicians,... (more)

Destiny Speaks

By Tajammul Kothari, published on Mar 5, 2014

Most men feel that they have the ability to fully control a particular situation or a result but this is just an illusion. The truth is that every moment of our lives are carefully thought out by the one and only Supreme Being. All our successes and failures too are preordained from the day that we are born. If a person is successful; it is because his success is written in the books of the Almighty and so is his failure. No matter how much we try to chalk out elaborate plans to succeed, it is our destiny that prevails at the end.

There are many individuals who proclaim that they possess... (more)

A Far Away Dream

By Tajammul Kothari, published on Jan 6, 2014

I am walking unsteadily in the midst of the skyscrapers. No matter where I look, these tall monsters are engulfing me and my each step draws them closer as if to bind me. My eyes search frantically for an escape but in vain as these metallic blocks keep building up in every corner. I feel a sense of breathlessness from this congestion and pray to find a place of solace somewhere; anywhere.

And then finally my strides take me to an open space in the middle of this concrete jungle and I feel elated for having found a rarity. I want to spread my arms and soak in this moment of solitude... (more)

In Sickness & In Health

By Tajammul Kothari, published on Nov 16, 2013

Anyone who has had an experience with sickness can vouch that being sick is not a good feeling.

Man prides himself in being strong and sickness just deflates this pride in him just like a balloon. It seems it is God’s way of showing that human being is merely a speck in this universe and that even a small creature like a mosquito can reduce man into a worthless being.

With sickness comes anxiety and anguish. Even a small bout of cold renders a man useless as he is irritated at all times and so goes to any length to get rid of this pestering malaise.

Medical check-ups, visit... (more)

Educational Constraints

By Tajammul Kothari, published on Nov 6, 2013

Education is the most important factor in one’s life as it helps in determining one’s future. A man’s formative years are spent in school and what he learns remains with him throughout his life. Therefore, a school being a temple of learning has a duty to impart education in a responsible manner.

Since initially a child is unable to question what he is taught, it is of utmost importance that the school provides factual information and not hypothetical theories and concepts such as Big Bang & Darwin’s’ Evolution which hold no truth. This kind of teaching may lead a child in having... (more)

Technologically Yours…..

By Tajammul Kothari, published on Sep 23, 2013

It’s difficult to understand whether technology has made things easier or more complicated. Even though technology has contributed greatly in the advancement of mankind, it seems that simple pleasures of life have been sacrificed. In the olden days, man gained good physical & mental strength by doing manual work without relying on any kind of technology. But nowadays, since everything can be accomplished just by the click of a button, man has become languid & hardly moves a finger.

It’s funny because one spend loads of money in acquiring new gadgets to make things easier... (more)
