वंदनीय / Adorable

एक दीपक 🪔 का जीवन
सिर्फ इसलिए वंदनीय नही है
कि वह जलता है,
बल्कि वह जलता है दूसरों के लिए,
हालांकि अंधेरा रह ही जाता है
उसके नीचे


The life of a lamp 🪔
is not adorable,
just because it burns,
but it burns for others,
though darkness remains
beneath it…

On the auspicious occasion of the Big Day*, let us take a small resolution that we will light a lamp or become a lamp, at least for some…

*P.S. Big Day (coined for the Christmas Day during the colonial British rule) still resonates with many of those times.

Merry Christmas 🎉🎄☃️

  1. Thank you, Kaushal, for your reflective thoughts. The life of a lamp isn’t adorable but noble as while its burns it illuminates the world of learning for others.
    In everything, there are two contrasts: light and dark. Your lamp, Kaushal, illustrates this perfectly.

    As to the “Big Day”, we live with history but must not be enslaved by it.

    Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you, Joanna, for your analytical comment that I appreciate. I too agree that we should not be enslaved, but we should not forget our history that teaches a lesson or two. History stands witness to the fact that the civilisation that forgot its history has been erased from the history.
      Merry Christmas to you too!!


  2. No matter the size or shape of the candle the flame 🔥 is similar. A candle can share it’s flame many times without diminishment. We could learn much from the candle 🕯️ and it’s light.🙏🕯️🔥🙏

  3. Here is a scripture that goes with your theme: “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. ” (Matthew 5:14-16 NIV)
    Merry Christmas to you and yours! Blessings and Peace!

  4. Lamps and light are amazing things…you light one for yourself, to push back the darkness and help you see clearer….but it also benefits everyone one else in the vicinity. Beautifully said, KK! 💞💞💞
