Thoughts and Quotes

Conversation with Life


If Life was an exam, what would it really measure: Money and Power, or Love and Pleasure?

Would it count the promotion letters or my children’s smiles?

Would it worry about the school projects or the tiny hands that went to grind?

Would it really pass me forward or would it fail me behind?


I muse these thoughts for no reason or rhyme

I laugh at life for trying to make me whine

Ha ha! I say, “You cannot be an exam for sure! For I have nowhere to go if I score”

“And nothing to lose if I don’t shore”

I stand here today just wanting to know more


Maybe you are a school, where we all went to learn

Some learnt less, some learnt more

Some made friends and some remained sore

We played hide n seek in classrooms meant to study

We left school when we thought we were ready


Just like a class you are one stage in my journey beyond


I will be happy to leave you when I am ready to move on


You do pose exams at me from my time to time

I pass some but fail many  a prime

You let me stay in the same class for a little while more

To help me learn, to help me grow

So if I am growing old with you right now

It just means that there is something more left to be learnt

I am an ex-Management Consultant and a successful entrepreneur having close to twenty years of corporate experience. I am currently focusing full time on being a homeschooling parent while researching on the future of education and alternate methods of education. I am also a Vedic Math Trainer, an Operations Manager at a business run by her children and a philanthropist working with tens of other under privileged children.

Using these blogs I wish to create awareness in parents, caregivers and educators about parenting, education and holistic living.
