Guest Post: Ranjeeta Ashesh; Dreams
Life without dreams,
Is like the running streams,
Where no one is concerned for anyone,
Just busy calculating zero and one.
For god sake, wait
Wherever you are,
Sit quietly in the midst of happiness,
And think of that divine power.
He has given you eyes,
In those eyes the great desires,
Which gives you peace of mind,
And never lets you tires.
Dreams are the world of fantasy
Where there are love and emotions
And future which is always glossy.
No one can snatch your dreams,
No one can stop you from going extremes,
So why not spend our night,
In searching for those beautiful sights,
Which will give us,
Satisfaction and confidence,
It will help us to rely on our future,
And believe in our presence.

Alfaazonkiudaan: – Good morning…I’m Mrs Ranjeeta Ashesh, an author and a versatile blogger
RNG:- Ranjeeta do you realise that you are my namesake and we both share the same passion and both are authors. This is a wonderful coincidence and I’m sure our chat will be very interesting, umm… how do I say it… it’s from one Ranjeeta to Another Ranjeeta… 😉 Can you tell us about your blog, and what inspired you to start it? 🙂
Alfaazonkiudaan:- Thank you so much Ranjeeta…Yes, we share the same name and same passions, and same achievements. Surely, I would love to. My blog “Alfaazonkiudaan” is the reflection of my thoughts.I feel blogging is a very good platform to interact and meet like mind people.

गंगा के तल सा मन,
जमुना के जल सा तन ,
सरस्वती के तिल सा जीवन ,
मेरी माँ मानो त्रिवेणी का हो संगम ,
करके पूजा तुलसी की
मेरे सर पर हाथ फेरकर ,
माँ को मैने मुसकाते पाया
आज हवा को भी उसके आँचल को सहलाते पाया ।
RNG:- Ranjeeta, what do you like to do when you’re not writing?
