Lighting Up Lives!

I read this somewhere about Bringing Light to People’s Lives.
‘I do not want to be the Sun in your life, and give light when everything is bright.’
Β 
‘I wish to be the Moon in your life and give light when there is darkness everywhere’
It is easy to stand by someone when many people are already supporting him/her,

But it matters a lot, to stand by someone when no one is there to support him/her.

Happy Karthigai Deepam πŸ™‚

  1. Wish you a happy Karthigai too, Ashwini! The lamp looks so sweet and evocative. At first glance the pic at the top looked like a lamp atop a mountain! Blame it on my bad eye πŸ™‚

  3. The sight of an earthen lamp or a deepak or a deeya evokes many feelings and conjures up many images. Lamp is a source and symbol of light which could be the light of knowledge that dispels ignorance or it could well be the light of joy that dispels sorrow. I am reminded of a famous nazm by the poet Iqbal, which was sung as a school prayer in my father's time:

    Lab pe aati hai dua ban ke tamanna meri
    Zindagi shamma ki soorat ho khudaya meri

    – which suma up the lofty purpose of human life .
    Another quote that comes to mind is ” ….when the lamp of justice goes out, how great is the darkness. The humble looking , ubiquitous lamp has lessons to learn and example to follow for all !
    Nice post as usual, Ashwini !

  4. Well Said Bikram. The question is not about agreeing, It is about being there at those crucial moments. Yes, you have a huge bunch of friends, who would stand by you, come what may. Thank you πŸ™‚
