Amaltash (Cassia fistula)
Canopy of a tree, an umbrella of flowers, drenched in sunshine yellow, quenching aesthetic thirst, providing shade.
Clouds laden with water, douse the fire, set aflame by the Sun.
The holy river receives the rain water, embracing it as its own.
Gently flowing , reflecting the sky, embedded with hot embers.
Dancing, jumping to the chantes , vibrating in the air.
Meditation haven for saints and sages,
tranquility personified from long gone ages.
Rishikesh, name signifies, the one who controls all senses.
Embodiment of all virtues, Lord Vishnu, from where life commences.

They say, your inner thoughts are your most loyal friends.
Inspiring you, motivating you, giving you strength to carry on.
Unfortunately, they are your most dissuading foes too.
Discouraging you, demotivating you, sucking the strength out of your life.
Control your own thoughts for you can’t control others’.
Instill positivity in your own mind, for you can’t remove negetivity from others’.
let your own thoughts guide you, let the light inside your heart shine through.
Don’t give others the power to penetrate your soul.
People are people, some love, some hate, some are calmly indifferent.
Their words, their actions should not be given precedence over your own.
You are who you are, for you were meant to be like that.
Cherish yourself, value yourself, be your own ideal.
No one but you are the protagonist of the drama of your life.
Be happy, be peaceful and applaud yourself.

Empathy for others challenged everyday by incautiousness of people.
By mirroring emotions or lack of them.
Sensitivity towards consequences challenged everyday by carelessness of people.
By maneuvering sentiments or by lack of them.
Caution should not be thrown to the wind. People not taken for granted.
Fondness not challenged everyday either by design or lack of it.
