A LOOK AT LIFE-4
BY- SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Life
At its various stations
Offers something
Which is just unique and different
Not to be found anywhere else

Life with all its splendours
To be lived and relished
For once you miss something
Will never come back again

From early childhood
To late old age
From naughty looks of a child
To the full bloom of youth
From the agony of mid fifty
To the apathy of late eighty
Life has its own moments

From cradle to the grave
Life is a feast
Never allow duty tension and anxiety
To take the juice out of it
Or else be sure
You will make a total mess of it

A LOOK AT LIFE-42
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

The beauty of life 
he knows who lives it for others
the feel of charity he feels who
shares his food with another 
and remains hungry as such
the pleasure of giving he relishes
who gives without a condition
expecting nothing in reciprocation

The less you live for yourself
and more for others
the more you live for yourself
your little drops of love, affection
sacrifice and concern go a long way
and fetch you the ocean in return

You are not unhappy as such
you are not happy because you think
others are more happy and that
happiness of others is what disturbs you
makes you unhappy

Most of the life
you live thinking about others
their affluence and achievement
and others are always in your
focus and  agenda
you are so obsessed and preoccupied with others, hardly any time left
for your own development
you compare yourself with others and feel sad
and carry that sadness with you
and distribute it among others
and make them sad
you are more concerned with 
what you do not have and forget the fact that God has endowed you enough  to make you happy and contented
you are not happy as you are
you want to be somebody else

You can not be happy
unless you enjoy others happiness
and fee their pangs of sorrow
you will remain with an agitated mind
and a pair of jealous eyes
till the very end

You live the whole of our life
nurturing jealousy and hatred
which gives you nothing expect
lots of heart burning
pain and mental agony 
you are to think and reassess
for still some time is left
still you have it in you
to make a rich harvest and live
the rest of life with lots of common sense

Live life to the full
let love be your only language
and religion, the whole world your family
be with others in their moments
of happiness and sorrow
the whole world will be yours
you will have that satisfaction, peace
and tranquility of mind
till now eluding your grasp 
a yogi's dream
which a man committed to 
naked self interest
can hardly fathom

What are the books that can change people's lives?


#1. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho [Fable]



There are millions of Books but none like this one. This is a masterpiece in FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS tale. This is the story of a boy who followed his dreams. You can understand everything about the Universe, Dreams, and Life in this one epic adventure. If you want to read one and only one book, then I would recommend this one only.

Two of the most powerful quotes from the book:

There is ONE GREAT TRUTH on this planet:
Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you want something, it is because that desire originated in the soul of the Universe. It is your mission on earth.

To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one. When you want something; all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

#2. Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill [Personal Development]



Napoleon Hill interviewed "40 millionaires" to discover the common thought processes and behavior that had led to their success. His study of these "best practices" was revolutionary in a world where it was largely assumed that great wealth resulted from a combination of greed and luck.

Best quote: "All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination. Imagination is the workshop of your mind, capable of turning mind energy into accomplishment and wealth."

#3. Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Dr. Joseph Murphy [Mind Programming]

#4. As A Man Thinketh by James Allen [Personal Development]



It's a classic written in 1902. It explains how your thoughts mold your personality, and how that personality drives you to take action and determines the type of action you'll take.

Most people love this book, and some hate it. But this is the book that lights up more life than any other books in Self-help arena by unfolding the secret to the Universe. It holds the treasure to the Universal Law of Attraction. Read this book and it will help you in every area of life while keeping you motivated.

Many people hate this book also because they consider it like a one stop solution. Remember no book can change anyone’s life jut by reading but only with the consistent application, it shows the result. Moreover, read this book and the follow the next two books by Rhonda Byrne The Power & The Magic and together they will give you the real action plan to manifest your dreams. Millions and millions have changed their life with these three books only. So don't buy the negative feedback from anyone ..Read them and try it and see the result.

Best Quote: “Be grateful for what you have now. As you begin to think about all the things in your life you are grateful for, you will be amazed at the never-ending thoughts that come back to you of more things to be grateful for. You have to make a start, and then the law of attraction will receive those grateful thoughts and give you more just like them.”

#6. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey



Our habits build or break our life. This book will help you develop better habits

It also convinces you that acquiring them will make you a better person.

1. Philosophy: The Open Society and Its Enemies of Karl R. Popper. Although those are two Volumes (I and II) the topic is the same. In the first Volume Karl Popper makes a brilliant analysis of ancient philosophers (Plato and Aristotle in particular) and how they influenced our culture till those day. In the second Volume Popper focuses on Hegel and Marx and how they influenced modern times ideologies. Although Popper is the only modern philosopher with a scientific approach the open society is a harsh critique to how those philosophers’ interpretation of the world lead eventually to the birth antidemocratic ideologies. Believe me when I say that this is one of the most mind-blowing texts ever written. In addition Popper’s style is very simple and captivating.

how did it change my life? Popper is one of the first philosophers which look at other philosophers with a skeptical eye. Once you read Popper you realize that also Plato and Aristotle were men and as such they made mistakes. Therefore, you don't take anything for given anymore.

2. Neuroscience:  Soft-Wired How the New Science of Neuroplasticity can change your life – Dr. Michael Merzenich PHD. This book is going to open your mind on how our brain actually works. You will see many myths that you believed true throughout your life bust in the pages of “Soft-Wired”. The book is brilliant since it explains the new scientific findings but also how to improve your life through neuroplasticity. It is really a guide on how to live.

how did it change my life? Adter reading Soft-wired my belief system shifted. I no longer believed to be a fixed individual. In other words I realized that DNA plays a dismal role compared to life and experience. And if you are willing to put the effort you can change yourself at any time in life. Empowering!

3. Non-Fiction: The Black Swan – Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Taleb is going to open your eyes on many topics and human biases. If you read this book carefully, eventually you will understand things about yourself and society in general that you did not notice before.

how did it change my life? It made me realize how humans are biased. Join the modern skeptics!

4. Fiction – The Divine Comedy – Dante Alighieri

Absolutely the best work ever written by any account. Dante Alighieri mixes fiction (he travels through hell, purgatory before reaching heaven) with history. Indeed in this fantastic journey he encounters many historical figures. His guide throughout this spiritual journey will be the Latin author Virgil that he defines as great master.

how did it change my life? Reading Dante is like going back in time and meeting many of the greatest ancient authors and mythological characters. It makes you discover a world that you did not have idea existed. Enlightening!

5. Autobiographies: Anwar El Sadat: In Search of Identity an Autobiography.

The amazing, inspiring and heroic personality, Sadat (former Egyptian president eventually assassinated) tells his story that seems more a tale than a real story. Sometimes reality exceeds fiction and this is one of those cases.

how did it change my life? Sadat story gave me strength. We realize that our everyday challenges are nothing compared to the ones Sadat had to face throughout his life.

The poet recalls the unforgettable memories of his childhood days that tag 'mother's touch and father's love' ,'teacher's concern and sister's affection' amid 'the carefree life' enjoying the bliss of nature. He also recalls the golden moments of youth that mesmerise the healthy bond of relations with so many friends.The journey of life never stops,ever goes on and on till it merges in the Infinite.However,the poet urges to experience the music of life to the fullest extent as he is aware of the fact that he won't get back again the same life of today. Kudos to you ,esteemed poet for composing such a brilliant poem on life divine.

A LOOK AT LIFE-19
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Time
Never go away
In you lies my entire life
Its ups and downs
Its beauty and glamour
And all that i loved and relished
Over the years

Let me go down
The memory lane
To my early childhood
To feel the warmth of relationships
Mother's touch and father's love
Teacher's concern and sister's affection
And the carefree life
Lead in the scenic beauty of nature

Take me
To the glorious days of youth
Colourful and fascinating
To feel the nicest of relationships
I have ever had
And the drive and motivation
With which I worked 

Time
Just hang on a bit
For i die to see once more 
That beauty under the veil
And feel those most fulfilling moments
That made my life sheer poetry
On earth

The Moment
Stay a while
I am to see life once again
Give me a bit of you
I know the next is not mine

SOMETHING I LOOK AT-53
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Books, my love!
my most tangible friend!
you are with me since childhood
never betrayed me once even
stood by me in moments of
joy and despair, agony and apathy
consoling and guiding me to my
ultimate destination with mirth and glee

Non like you
non can be
whenever I am in a fix
I look at you
you have answers to all my 
vexed questions, a panacea to all my ills
you carry truth and wisdom from generation to generation
and guide civilisations to its perfection
you have in you the beauty and fragrance
of the past
the knowledge of mankind, a road map for the present, a vision of the futre
and everything one needs to go ahead
on the path of life
with ease and dignity

When there was no internet, no telivsion
no means of communication and radio 
was a luxury of the few
you were there  providing me with all the knowledge, wisdom and expertise
and instilled the urge in me
to live life to the full with a purpose, love and passion

You nourished me all along
taught me the spirit of tolerance and 
compromise, the value of being good
to oneself and others
and made me what I am
a disciplined man with lots of love
admiration and respect for others
I never fumbled on the way
in the manner I was socialised
the values I inculcated
paved me the way

Today we have all the modern means
of communication and the whole world
at the door step 
but how incomplete and fragile
our socialisation seems to be
the way we were groomed in yester years
with classics like Ramayan and Mahabharat are far different from the
grooming of today's kids with telivision and internet
which is clearly evident from their attitude
towards life, themselves and others
in the midst of electronic gadgets
the human touch of the books
sadly missing and sadly missing is
the simplicity of man, his love 
concern and respect for others

The charm of you knows he
who reads you with love and passion
I will never let you die
my friend! 
you are stil in the heart of my heart
soul of my soul and will be there
till I breathe my last

"Thanks and gratitude to Prof Cijo Joseph Chennelil, the eminent poet and literary critc for his fabulous critical appreciation of my poem 'A LOOK AT LIFE-4'. Thank you very much, sir, for your wonderful words of appreciation Smruti Ranjaniji, Your poem titled"A Look At Life -4"is a poem that looks at life from various strands, angles and dimensions. As we go through different phases of life, we come across different circumstances and situations which teach us about various aspects of life one way or other. Whatever, it is, life should be cherished to the hilt because when it is gone, it is the endgame, so whatever good things that we can do in this life, we have to do with atmost earnestness and consideration. From childhood to old age, life teaches us many things, in early childhood we are tinged with innocence, then in the adolescent period,we are prone to the nitty grittes of life culminating in antics of various hues and colours, in the middle age,we function as people of obligations and responsibilities and finally in the old age, we wait for the chariot of death to arrive with a sense of resignation. In fact from birth to death, life is a constant struggle and a pillar to post running but we need to enjoy life imbibing its essence and real spirit, otherwise, we shall regret about it at the end. If we are bogged down by the responsibilities and high pressured jobs in our lives, then the prime period of our lives pass by us without ourselves noticing it a bit.

A LOOK AT LIFE-4
BY- SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Life
At its various stations
Offers something
Which is just unique and different
Not to be found anywhere else

Life with all its splendours
To be lived and relished
For once you miss something
Will never come back again

From early childhood
To late old age
From naughty looks of a child
To the full bloom of youth
From the agony of mid fifty
To the apathy of late eighty
Life has its own moments

From cradle to the grave
Life is a feast
Never allow duty tension and anxiety
To take the juice out of it
Or else be sure
You will make a total mess of it

A LOOK AT LIFE-42
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

The beauty of life 
he knows who lives it for others
the feel of charity he feels who
shares his food with another 
and remains hungry as such
the pleasure of giving he relishes
who gives without a condition
expecting nothing in reciprocation

The less you live for yourself
and more for others
the more you live for yourself
your little drops of love, affection
sacrifice and concern go a long way
and fetch you the ocean in return

You are not unhappy as such
you are not happy because you think
others are more happy and that
happiness of others is what disturbs you
makes you unhappy

Most of the life
you live thinking about others
their affluence and achievement
and others are always in your
focus and  agenda
you are so obsessed and preoccupied with others, hardly any time left
for your own development
you compare yourself with others and feel sad
and carry that sadness with you
and distribute it among others
and make them sad
you are more concerned with 
what you do not have and forget the fact that God has endowed you enough  to make you happy and contented
you are not happy as you are
you want to be somebody else

You can not be happy
unless you enjoy others happiness
and fee their pangs of sorrow
you will remain with an agitated mind
and a pair of jealous eyes
till the very end

You live the whole of our life
nurturing jealousy and hatred
which gives you nothing expect
lots of heart burning
pain and mental agony 
you are to think and reassess
for still some time is left
still you have it in you
to make a rich harvest and live
the rest of life with lots of common sense

Live life to the full
let love be your only language
and religion, the whole world your family
be with others in their moments
of happiness and sorrow
the whole world will be yours
you will have that satisfaction, peace
and tranquility of mind
till now eluding your grasp 
a yogi's dream
which a man committed to 
naked self interest
can hardly fathom

Your poem titled"A Look At Life-42" is a poem that brings into the forefront the salient features concerning life that we all need to practice in our day to day life.This life is to be a life that must be offered to others in selfless manner and services.We need to live our lives without expecting any reward from any quarters,we need to shed our desires so that we can be kept away from unhappiness all throughout our lives.If we engage in sharing than receiving in our lives,that can do us a world of good,we are subtly unhappy because we are more interested in receiving than giving freely to our fellow human beings.The funny thing about us human beings is that we are unhappy when we come to know about the happiness of our fellow human beings,this is the most selfish attitude of us human beings.We human beings all throughout our lives think about others,in fact we are so obsessed with what others do,as a result of which we often loose our peace of mind,we humans also have this imitation culture wherein we are so much interested in following others footsteps than having self-confidence attitude regarding our own personalities,talents,abilities and potentialities.If we are not happy about the successes of others,we can't be happy at all at any rate,we should have an open mindset to accept others joy and their successes in life,then only life will be a worthwhile thing indeed.To make matters worse,we live all throughout our lives with an attitude of jealous nature which can be very toxic and poisonous to ourselves in the long run.Let us all drive away our self-centred attitude and then come into the realm of love stock,block and barrel and every step of the way to lead a happy and contented life.Kudos to you for composing such a poem of magnificent nature.

A LOOK AT LIFE-42
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

The beauty of life
he knows who lives it for others
the feel of charity he feels who
shares his food with another
and remains hungry as such
the pleasure of giving he relishes
who gives without a condition
expecting nothing in reciprocation

The less you live for yourself
and more for others
the more you live for yourself
your little drops of love, affection
sacrifice and concern go a long way
and fetch you the ocean in return

You are not unhappy as such
you are not happy because you think
others are more happy and that
happiness of others is what disturbs you
makes you unhappy

Most of the life
you live thinking about others
their affluence and achievement
and others are always in your
focus and agenda
you are so obsessed and preoccupied with others, hardly any time left
for your own development
you compare yourself with others and feel sad
and carry that sadness with you
and distribute it among others
and make them sad
you are more concerned with
what you do not have and forget the fact that God has endowed you enough to make you happy and contented
you are not happy as you are
you want to be somebody else

You can not be happy
unless you enjoy others happiness
and fee their pangs of sorrow
you will remain with an agitated mind
and a pair of jealous eyes
till the very end

You live the whole of our life
nurturing jealousy and hatred
which gives you nothing expect
lots of heart burning
pain and mental agony
you are to think and reassess
for still some time is left
still you have it in you
to make a rich harvest and live
the rest of life with lots of common sense

Live life to the full
let love be your only language
and religion, the whole world your family
be with others in their moments
of happiness and sorrow
the whole world will be yours
you will have that satisfaction, peace
and tranquility of mind
till now eluding your grasp
a yogi's dream
which a man committed to
naked self interest
can hardly fathom

What are the books that can change people's lives?


#1. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho [Fable]



There are millions of Books but none like this one. This is a masterpiece in FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS tale. This is the story of a boy who followed his dreams. You can understand everything about the Universe, Dreams, and Life in this one epic adventure. If you want to read one and only one book, then I would recommend this one only.

Two of the most powerful quotes from the book:

There is ONE GREAT TRUTH on this planet:
Whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you want something, it is because that desire originated in the soul of the Universe. It is your mission on earth.

To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only real obligation. All things are one. When you want something; all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

Moreover, read this book and the follow the next two books by Rhonda Byrne The Power & The Magic and together they will give you the real action plan to manifest your dreams. Millions and millions have changed their life with these three books only. So don't buy the negative feedback from anyone ..Read them and try it and see the result.

Best Quote: “Be grateful for what you have now. As you begin to think about all the things in your life you are grateful for, you will be amazed at the never-ending thoughts that come back to you of more things to be grateful for. You have to make a start, and then the law of attraction will receive those grateful thoughts and give you more just like them.”

1. Philosophy: The Open Society and Its Enemies of Karl R. Popper. Although those are two Volumes (I and II) the topic is the same. In the first Volume Karl Popper makes a brilliant analysis of ancient philosophers (Plato and Aristotle in particular) and how they influenced our culture till those day. In the second Volume Popper focuses on Hegel and Marx and how they influenced modern times ideologies. Although Popper is the only modern philosopher with a scientific approach the open society is a harsh critique to how those philosophers’ interpretation of the world lead eventually to the birth antidemocratic ideologies. Believe me when I say that this is one of the most mind-blowing texts ever written. In addition Popper’s style is very simple and captivating.

how did it change my life? Popper is one of the first philosophers which look at other philosophers with a skeptical eye. Once you read Popper you realize that also Plato and Aristotle were men and as such they made mistakes. Therefore, you don't take anything for given anymore.

2. Neuroscience:  Soft-Wired How the New Science of Neuroplasticity can change your life – Dr. Michael Merzenich PHD. This book is going to open your mind on how our brain actually works. You will see many myths that you believed true throughout your life bust in the pages of “Soft-Wired”. The book is brilliant since it explains the new scientific findings but also how to improve your life through neuroplasticity. It is really a guide on how to live.

how did it change my life? Adter reading Soft-wired my belief system shifted. I no longer believed to be a fixed individual. In other words I realized that DNA plays a dismal role compared to life and experience. And if you are willing to put the effort you can change yourself at any time in life. Empowering!

3. Non-Fiction: The Black Swan – Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Taleb is going to open your eyes on many topics and human biases. If you read this book carefully, eventually you will understand things about yourself and society in general that you did not notice before.

how did it change my life? It made me realize how humans are biased. Join the modern skeptics!

4. Fiction – The Divine Comedy – Dante Alighieri

Absolutely the best work ever written by any account. Dante Alighieri mixes fiction (he travels through hell, purgatory before reaching heaven) with history. Indeed in this fantastic journey he encounters many historical figures. His guide throughout this spiritual journey will be the Latin author Virgil that he defines as great master.

how did it change my life? Reading Dante is like going back in time and meeting many of the greatest ancient authors and mythological characters. It makes you discover a world that you did not have idea existed. Enlightening!

5. Autobiographies: Anwar El Sadat: In Search of Identity an Autobiography.

The amazing, inspiring and heroic personality, Sadat (former Egyptian president eventually assassinated) tells his story that seems more a tale than a real story. Sometimes reality exceeds fiction and this is one of those cases.

how did it change my life? Sadat story gave me strength. We realize that our everyday challenges are nothing compared to the ones Sadat had to face throughout his life.

A LOOK AT LIFE-19
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Time
Never go away
In you lies my entire life
Its ups and downs
Its beauty and glamour
And all that i loved and relished
Over the years

Let me go down
The memory lane
To my early childhood
To feel the warmth of relationships
Mother's touch and father's love
Teacher's concern and sister's affection
And the carefree life
Lead in the scenic beauty of nature

Take me
To the glorious days of youth
Colourful and fascinating
To feel the nicest of relationships
I have ever had
And the drive and motivation
With which I worked 

Time
Just hang on a bit
For i die to see once more 
That beauty under the veil
And feel those most fulfilling moments
That made my life sheer poetry
On earth

The Moment
Stay a while
I am to see life once again
Give me a bit of you
I know the next is not mine

SOMETHING I LOOK AT-53
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Books, my love!
my most tangible friend!
you are with me since childhood
never betrayed me once even
stood by me in moments of
joy and despair, agony and apathy
consoling and guiding me to my
ultimate destination with mirth and glee

Non like you
non can be
whenever I am in a fix
I look at you
you have answers to all my 
vexed questions, a panacea to all my ills
you carry truth and wisdom from generation to generation
and guide civilisations to its perfection
you have in you the beauty and fragrance
of the past
the knowledge of mankind, a road map for the present, a vision of the futre
and everything one needs to go ahead
on the path of life
with ease and dignity

When there was no internet, no telivsion
no means of communication and radio 
was a luxury of the few
you were there  providing me with all the knowledge, wisdom and expertise
and instilled the urge in me
to live life to the full with a purpose, love and passion

You nourished me all along
taught me the spirit of tolerance and 
compromise, the value of being good
to oneself and others
and made me what I am
a disciplined man with lots of love
admiration and respect for others
I never fumbled on the way
in the manner I was socialised
the values I inculcated
paved me the way

Today we have all the modern means
of communication and the whole world
at the door step 
but how incomplete and fragile
our socialisation seems to be
the way we were groomed in yester years
with classics like Ramayan and Mahabharat are far different from the
grooming of today's kids with telivision and internet
which is clearly evident from their attitude
towards life, themselves and others
in the midst of electronic gadgets
the human touch of the books
sadly missing and sadly missing is
the simplicity of man, his love 
concern and respect for others

The charm of you knows he
who reads you with love and passion
I will never let you die
my friend! 
you are stil in the heart of my heart
soul of my soul and will be there
till I breathe my last

you carry truth and wisdom from generation to generation
and guide civilisations to its perfection
you have in you the beauty and fragrance
of the past
the knowledge of mankind, a road map for the present, a vision of the futre
and everything one needs to go ahead
on the path of life
with ease and dignity

When there was no internet, no telivsion
no means of communication and radio
was a luxury of the few
you were there providing me with all the knowledge, wisdom and expertise
and instilled the urge in me
to live life to the full with a purpose, love and passion

You nourished me all along
taught me the spirit of tolerance and
compromise, the value of being good
to oneself and others
and made me what I am
a disciplined man with lots of love
admiration and respect for others
I never fumbled on the way
in the manner I was socialised
the values I inculcated
paved me the way

Today we have all the modern means
of communication and the whole world
at the door step
but how incomplete and fragile
our socialisation seems to be
the way we were groomed in yester years
with classics like Ramayan and Mahabharat are far different from the
grooming of today's kids with telivision and internet
which is clearly evident from their attitude
towards life, themselves and others
in the midst of electronic gadgets
the human touch of the books
sadly missing and sadly missing is
the simplicity of man, his love
concern and respect for others

The charm of you knows he
who reads you with love and passion
I will never let you die
my friend!
you are still in the heart of my heart
soul of my soul and will be there
till I breathe my last
