The burden of Expectation

A man has to prove his mettle in life, which moves very fast
Not only being a child but till the day he breathes his last

Being a toddler, parents expect them to perform in front of all
including reciting poems, alphabets, numbers right up to juggling with ball

When a child moves into a school, the real test is to start
The child has to satisfy his peers, teachers and his parents apart

No time to enjoy leisure is the story common, of every home
No time to nurture their hobbies, No time to play a game

Not playing a game is again dangerous for child in many ways
as a child never learns to accept 'loss' on those few unlucky days

This acceptance of loss makes him strong at heart
and the child gets ready to face challenges in life, being smart

Some parents put the burden of Expectation to impress others
Without understanding that freedom for a child can work wonders

Some parent jump to the defense at every problem of the child, even mild
Encouraging at times but can be equally dangerous, as they tend to behave wild

Entering the teens, worsens the situation for a young mind
so much to do with so less resources, also the peer pressure building up from all side

Excelling in academics, winning all the contest
Impressing a loved one, makes the situation worst

Being in love, may be the best feeling at personal level, for anyone
But to satisfy all the needs of love and go against parents, comforts no one

Getting married to the loved one is a blissful experience
However, the list of expectant increases manifold, twice or thrice

The person who spent the first half of his life for the sake of parent
Now has few more people, for whom he is responsible cent percent

The child looks up to his parents to perform consistently, in desperation
So, even  now the person cannot relax, as his own blood is looking up for inspiration

After all the social responsibilities of a person is fulfilled without being backlash-ed
He has to maintain his mannerism, for his image in the society is not damaged

Even when he gains promotion from being a parent to becoming a grand parent
He is not allowed to lead life in his own way, without the tensions of salary or rent

His children expect few things, taking care of grand children especially
And if he fails in that regard, giving priority to his needs, he faces opposition drastically

On the death-bed, he is not spared to relax at his own luxury
For people have less time to take care of the noble soul till it departs peacefully

Whoever has been blessed with the beauty of living a human life
is subject to the curse of 'Expectation' which kills life into pieces like a knife

My humble request to all the readers is 'Minimize this Expectation'
Follow the principle of ' Live and Let live' without botheration.

Every person has a special time for special people, old and new
For the opportunities provided in life are less and at times, few

To celebrate success of Heramb, Udaan is an occassion
Felicitating meritorious students and also having final year valedictory function

Its a way of inspiring students, to achieve better
every one present in the first year thinks of improving his marks meter

Final year students enjoy by participating in various cultural activity
Dancing, singing is common, participating in ramp walk being a priority

Even the volunteers who help in arrangement of the program enjoy
Everyone works selflessly as a team irrespective of being a girl or a boy

Udaan can have different meaning for different mind
The official version being 'Unlimited Dreams and Ambitions Nurtured'

The Group Pilgrimage

Going to sabarimala is a blessed pilgrimage
having people of different caste and various age

Going alone through dense jungle is not suggested
Hence, Joining groups for journey is better opted

But, being a part of a group, is more testing
people with different mindsets make the journey interesting

Some people stubborn to their demands to be met, shout bluntly
Being Flexible in a group makes the survival and rapport instantly

Everyone may be a king at their individual level
For the betterment of group and self, one has to manage his personal ego well

All the problem arises because many forget the aim of pilgrimage
its not expecting luxuries but facing challenges with courage

One tends to forget he has come to get blissful darshan of Lord, without ego
who comes as 'Jyothi' year after year as promised decades ago
