HI!! Friends I am back,

This time lets discuss one of the most horrifying dangerous and at the same time most motivating thing present in this world


I'll begin with some lines which I wrote the first I started thinking about this topic

Fire of passion, matter of trust

grew in me, enriched my thirst

To be the best, to be the hardest

To light a lamp in the darkest

Fire has varied symbolizations. It has been symbolized in many ways:

Energy, Power, Passion, Action, Creativity, Authority, Consumption, The Untamed, Meditation, Affirmation, Journeying, Devotional

Every person has its own meaning and symbolization of fire. Everyone has its own reasons behind it. But whatever be the reason on the whole everyone adores the power, the beauty, the heat of FIRE.

Neither am I a exception. I have a very strong attraction towards fire. Its untamable power, its incomparable light, its golden yellow beautiful flames always filled me with an inspiration to be the best.


motivation to be the best, to be at the top of the lader.

I believe that whatever achievements you have made, however successful you are, but if there is no fire, no passion in your heart, you'll find your life boring and even sometimes worthless.

The fire, the passion in you makes you work harder and better every day, every second

it helps you be the happy, it gives you the feeling of satisfaction of doing what you wanted to do.

Few days ago I wrote a small (in my mother tongue, HINDI) poem to expressing these feelings in my heart. http://jpgmag.com/photos/3464889

I am very thankful to one of my best friends BHARTI PALIWAL for translating the poem in English for me. http://jpgmag.com/photos/3465042

(Both are included in this story in form of pics)

Being a person closely related with creative fields, I have observed this fire, this passion in people from very close. Have found them being better and better every day.

What I mean to say is that, whatever you do, whatever is your profession, whatever are the conditions, you should always have a fire burning inside your heart, motivating you every day, every night.

Once again I am very thankful to BHARTI PALIWAL for her excellent translation of the poem.

Thank you dear 

Hope you'll like my work 
