In pursuit of peace


Let me take you to a place,a place far far away from here.You don’t need to pack your bags or worry about the journey for the place.As this is the place where the blinds can see, the deaf can hear, dumb can speak and mentally challenged are part of the world.

Everything is familiar in this place, like you have been living in this place for generations yet so far away from it, like you are at home.Your heart settles here, no anxiety, no sadness, no expectation so no disappointment, no anger or no tears. As of now, you won’t find anyone there, since people don’t live there anymore.

You won’t find food there, because there is no hunger.You won’t find money there because there is no poor.You won’t find schools there, because there is no uneducated. No hospitals because no illness.No war because there is no religion.No disputes because there is no country or possessions.

No..wait, don’t start searching this place in your map or in your globe, you won’t find it there.Many have lost themselves in the pursuit of this.A prince left his kingdom and family in pursuit of this, though he found it.

You don’t have to leave your family or home or job or college to get there. Just take a mirror and look  within maybe you will find it there.Look at a kid smiling, maybe you will find it there.Maybe you will find it in a mother’s face looking at her children.Maybe you will find it in a father’s smile when he is looking at his family. Smell the coffee.Listen to the rain, even smell the mud.Put on your headphones and play cold play, maybe you will find it there.Tell someone, everything is going to be fine. Hold someone’s hand or hug someone. Take a walk without knowing where you are going looking at everyone. Shutting off the world, turn off your cellphones, no Facebook or mails. Maybe you will find it there.Or, maybe go home and love your family and let it find you.

The place is called – Place of Peace.

And as Bob Marley said –

so far away from where it’s happening
you think you found a place of peace
just to find that it’s happening everywhere
it’s happening here there and everywhere
please don’t touch that with the vision
learn to respect every man religion…
let I live a life I love to today…
lift my spliff and take a draw
someone say I’m breakin’ the law
they make everything to try and arrest you…
