अच्छा है.....

 कुछ अनकहीं सी बातें रह जायें  तो अच्छा है,
या नज़रिए के रुख कुछ बदल जायें तो अच्छा है।

अच्छा है हमारे बीच इन लकीरोंका होना,
या किस्मत की अपने जो लकीरें बदल जाए तो अच्छा है।

खोजते तो हम भी हैं तेरे साथ के कुछ लम्हों को,
इन लम्हों का नज़ारा अपने ख्वाब में बस जाए तो भी अच्छा है।

Most popular traditions of SUPERSTITIONS around the world

I belong to a family where everyone denies believing in superstitions. Still they do. It’s something that we knowingly or unknowingly follow almost daily. 

I remember in my childhood my mother used to make me look at a water filled bucket before leaving for giving any exam or competition. Before leaving home for traveling we used to have some sweet. If my aunt found any footwear flipped then it was sure for her that she going to have a bad day that day. I was not allowed to leave home just after having milk. If it’s urgent then I have to put some mouth freshener or any snacks in my mouth.

There are many such memories which make me today too to follow some as per my convenience.

Are you Superstitious?

So, yes I am not superstitious but follow some which make sense to me. I do not mean that they are good to me to follow but I do to satisfy my faith and handle my fear. Also to make others happy who want me to follow them irrespective of what I think about such superstitions.

Even I learned Karate in my childhood. I always appreciated countries like Korea, China, Japan, etc for giving us such wonderful techniques of self defense and never bothered to know about history or origin of martial arts.

I am sure some of you still do not know:
