Bed of solitude underlies,
Mirror searches a virtue in the vice,
Repressed, suppressed, failed unties,
Once again the heart cries!
Not the first time, these good byes,
Life falls back yet again after the rise,
Fortune plays the same old dice,
Once again the heart cries!
Away it flies,
To the dark aloof skies,
A little more it dies,
Once again the heart cries!
As years pass by, we try to grow,
We give a small piece of ourselves to those we know.
Yet a distinct lump is retained inside,
Unrevealed, Pure and Mystified.. it remains best kept in the silent hide.
We keep that unique piece saved for the day,
When a special someone with charms can take it away.
When we are robbed of that masked morsel in our new meet,
Is the moment when we are complete!
Every morning has a learning in store for me these days,
Life is enriching me in its VUCA ways.
Learning to value myself, and the small gifts I have,
Expressing gratitude to those who are standing there!
Realizing those who failed me, and those who shined,
Learning to let it go, to be kind.
Learning to speak up, and express the suppressed.
Nurturing dreams and strive for the zest!
On being engaged, welcoming a new wonderful life,
From a pampered daughter, learning soon to be a loving wife.
Trying to know him more in this courtship stage,
And slowly falling in love with him in an arranged marriage.
Life is sliding beautifully to a fresh pool of maturity,
Abounded with unconditional love, lifelong commitment and divine purity.
This maturity teaches me that I cannot take the wrongs and make them right,
But as I wake up each morning, I can choose to see the light!
They said that love would come to me someday,
They said that mountains would shift their way.
Although these few days have taken me by surprise,
Soul tells me that life from now will only arise.
Ties are made in heaven, higher above,
With you as my present, I am showered with the biggest blessing of love.
Mr. Talented & Intelligent, I can even be lam’er’ with you,
With you by my side, life is too good to be true.
It isn’t about finding the perfect person, but accepting the imperfections perfectly,
Yet, I can only say that you are too perfect for me.
Fragile and scared, I have put all my trust in you,
Always be with me, even when I irritate you.
Trusting the higher power, I knew I will meet someone someday,
Who shall love my parents more and be their hope’s new ray.
This 14th Feb, life will anew,
Someone will reside eternally in my hearts venue!
Broken heart misses a few pieces,
The past haunts, its existence never ceases.
A silent knock settles upon the aching heart,
Will you help me make a fresh start?
If I bare my wounds to you,
Will you heal them, rejuvenate too?
Will my depth learn to laugh again?
Will you bear me crack lame jokes and go insane?
Will you leave and walk away?
Or will you stay to find a way?
And if I open my heart to you once again,
Will you be there for me till the end?
अयं निजः परोवेति गणना लघुचेतसां
उदार चरितानां तु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम ॥
A firm believer in the power of literature, Dr. Santrupt Misra, Carbon Black Business CEO & Group HR Director Aditya Birla Group, recited the above Sanskrit Shloka to inculcate an understanding that the whole world is one family (Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam). The event was organized by Thane HR, a group dedicated to bring together the HR talent pool to a common platform. Dr. Misra believes that we all live together on the foundations of mutual love and trust, and therefore, he unfolded his ladder to success, as he revealed the various crossroads of his life.
Buddha once said that, “What we believe is what we become”. The blog is an account of the core beliefs that have shaped Dr. Misra, a small town boy without much access (as he called himself) into a triumphant leader.
Distinction between 'Something' and 'Someone'
In a role model, focus should be on the behavior that we wish to emulate, and not on the person as a whole. If we try to replicate someone blindly, we won’t reach anywhere. Dr. Misra holds that we should aim to become ‘something’ in life and not ‘someone’.
Going Beyond the Call of Duty
Once, Dr. Misra’s Math teacher travelled all the way at 4.30 am in the morning just to send his best wishes before the Math exam. This made Dr. Misra learn, early in his life, the importance of nurturing a human bond and going beyond the basic requirements of the job. He advised the audience to strive to be that person who goes above and beyond what’s necessarily expected and we will see more of life’s rewards making way into our life.
Courage to Challenge what one feels is not right
HR does not assume a mere bystander’s role in maintaining the ethical tone of the workplace. Dr. Misra believes it is important to lead by example in the organization and to create a culture of mutual respect and dignity. Therefore, it is the HR’s moral obligation to challenge a particular decision of the management which may harm the employee’s interest.
Success is in Touching People's Life!
(Meaning: No matter how much you have acquired and how so ever you show it off, it is soon going to go away)
Dr. Misra narrated the above stanza in Thomas Gray’s elegy, emphasizing his perception about success. “Life is not about how much you have achieved”, he says, “Success lies in how many lives you have touched.” Success is a relative term. While it is important to have our goals high, it is also necessary to check ourselves, as to how much we have outreached and made a positive difference in the other’s lives.
Power of Coincidence
Deepak Chopra says that, “Coincidences are not accidents but signals from the universe which can guide us toward our true destiny.” It is the people, places, and events of our lives are showing us what we need to know or where we are ready to go. Many a times, unexpected things happen. It is vital for us to embrace life and go with the flow of life.
We, students of MILS, had only heard about the popularity index of Dr. Santrupt Misra. But, after his soul-stirring speech, it was natural to become a part of his fan list. Once again a stupendous event arranged by Thane HR Group. We appreciate and are grateful to the efforts of the group for making it possible for students to join the platform.
