Once again, I am writing a post thanking you all and specially thanking a fellow blogger, for nominating me for one more blogging award, and I am forever obliged to all those who think I am deserving for this award.

Yes I also love to travel a lot, this activity is however suspended since the Pandemic spread at present. ________________________________________ Now my answers to the Questions asked by Shreya Ji:
Q1.) What is the craziest thing you have ever done? Ans. Living in this world of today and remaining happy is the craziest thing, I think. Some poets said ‘the life today is such that as much you think about, you become more and more sad!’
Q2.) What is more important to you: family or success? Why?
Ans. Again I would refer to a shaayar Wasim Barelvi ji- ‘jo zinda hain to fir zinda nazar aana zaruri hai’, We must live our life with full enthusiasm, that is the way to be happy and successful too.
Q3.) List two qualities you have developed during lockdown?
Ans. I am not a person who keeps developing qualities. Yes, we follow some rules during lock down, would keep doing so during this scare. Further I am a retired person, I had been staying mostly at home earlier also, so not great change, except travelling not possible at present.
Q4.) What is your inspiration behind starting your blog?
Ans. Everybody in the world wants to communicate. Some who consider themselves artists or thinkers also find ways to reach people. Initially I wrote poems etc. to reach people now I think blogging is the easy and best way to reach people and interact with them.
Q5.) Name the driving force which motivates you during your low phases and why?
Ans. I believe in Indian philosophy and the principle of ‘Karmas’ also. Whatever we have to face in life is going to happen, we can only remain ready to face all situations. Some Saint told somebody ‘This situation would also end’, which means whether happiness or sadness, all situations are going to change, so we must accept whatever happens, with courage and readiness.
After this there are two activities to happen. One is that I have to nominate some fellow bloggers for this award.
As per my past practice, being a lazy person too and one who can’t choose a few, I nominate everybody who reads my blog posts, to accept it as a nomination from my side and take the baton forward. Yes, I nominate you, for this award.
Further I need to ask some questions, so again I think the questions asked by Sakshi Shreya Ji were quite good and a lot can be said in response to these questions, so you may take these questions from my side and give your wonderful answers based on them. ________________________________________

THE Questions and Answers–
1. WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO WRITE ?
Ans. It is life, which itself is a big question, a big challenge. It also does ask many questions and makes us react in many forms, of which one form is writing blogs. There are many mediums of expression- drawing, painting, Acting, making films and TV serial, also participating in debates for some people. I think writing is also a good option and with the availability of online platforms, it is most appropriate for people like me who don’t want to spend money in publishing books etc. and can directly reach the target audience through this.
2. WHAT ALL DO YOU DO TO KEEP ALL YOUR DISTRACTIONS AWAY?
Ans. It is a quite difficult question. Is it always necessary to avoid distractions? Sometimes while writing poems, distractions also help in being more creative and imaginative. However, concentration is definitely important in life, one can learn by practice how to concentrate and when distractions are more powerful, we can take a break for some time and resume later, sometimes it may help us to be more creative.
3. IS THERE ANY KIND OF ADVICE YOU WOULD LIKE TO GIVE TO THE PEOPLE IN PAIN?
Ans. There was one advice which some saint gave to somebody, whether in pain or being big headed, when everything is in your control. And the advice was- ‘This situation would also not remain forever‘. We can study some inspiring literature, life history of great people. In life everybody has to face ‘ups and downs’, we also do understand under these conditions, who actually are our real well wishers. More than giving advice, we should try to help such people, if we can.
4. WHAT WILL YOU DO IF YOU FIND A PERSON DEPRESSED OR STRESSED OUT? DO YOU THINK THAT WILL HELP?
Ans. Sympathy and empathy are the things everybody can provide. We should try to understand what are the things that have brought the person in that condition. When we listen to the pains of a person and try to infuse hope in him, it makes a great difference. There are many things which would depend on actual condition of a person and gravity of the problems. Depending on nature of the problem, we can decide how to proceed, whether it needs medical attendance or what?
5. WHAT ALL OTHER WAYS CAN YOU THINK OF INSPIRING OTHERS, OTHER THAN WRITING?
Ans. The real thing in society, that we can do is being a good friend, neighbor, colleague etc. We need to have a friendly behavior and helping attitude. Listen to them with sympathy and empathy. If we are in a position to do so, we can encourage people to do things, which might help them in moving forward. Let others feel that you are the person with whom they can freely share their joys and sorrows and also seek advice if needed.
Now is the turn to nominate some blogger friends and also to notify them.
I am really sorry I am never able to pick up some names for nomination. I nominate all blogger friends who go through this blog post to feel that it is my nomination for them. They may take the baton forward and write the ‘Award blog post’ and nominate their creative friends further.
Further regarding questions-
I feel that the questions asked by Ankita Ji are pretty good, and you may take these questions from my side and give your inspiring answers on them. I repeat the questions asked by Ankita Ji, for you-
1. WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO WRITE ? 2. WHAT ALL DO YOU DO TO KEEP ALL YOUR DISTRACTIONS AWAY? 3. IS THERE ANY KIND OF ADVICE YOU WOULD LIKE TO GIVE TO THE PEOPLE IN PAIN? 4. WHAT WILL YOU DO IF YOU FIND A PERSON DEPRESSED OR STRESSED OUT? DO YOU THINK THAT WILL HELP? 5. WHAT ALL OTHER WAYS CAN YOU THINK OF INSPIRING OTHERS, OTHER THAN WRITING? ________________________________________ With that I again thank Ankita Ji for nominating me and request my fellow bloggers to take it forward.
I wish you all the best and hope that some of my friends would voluntarily take it forward.

This award goes to a real achiever and successor who has been giving their creative feelings and thoughts exquisitely presenting a good perfection of work of art in WordPress Writing.
I am from a birthplace of Gautam Buddha who enlightened many parts of the world in his lifetime by his wisdom and knowledge of equanimity, or peace of mind which is achieved by detaching oneself from the cycle of craving that produces trouble. And, from a lap of Mount Everest, giving adventurous taste of mountain climbing to the people around the world. The most important thing is purity from the Himalayas, everyone get tastes of pure water flowing from mountain to the hills and then Terai region spreading tranquility in spring.
“महासिद्धी” is a term for someone who embodies and cultivates the “Siddhi of perfection”. A Siddha is an individual who, through the practice of sādhanā, attains the realization of siddhis, psychic and spiritual abilities and powers.
We are a member of a global village “WordPress” to help shape the world peacefully through our continuous effort to dedicate and invest our valuable time for writing giving a perfection, i.e. “महासिद्धी”. Concept of PEACE
The peace obtained from the physical substances is momentary. Only the peace sprouted from the content of soul of human-beings can be a long-term and everlasting. Hence, every human-being should search peace within their own inner heart and soul to live in a peaceful environment.
Therefore, human-beings should establish peace to expel chaos, tyranny, exploitative nature, bad traits and bad virtues from not only in them but also from a society. So, peace is one and only the source of human-beings to achieve or aim happiness, delight, cheerfulness and zeal in life. I believe this award will give all of you a strength to eradicate bad traits from our global village- WordPress.
Concept of SAVE ENVIRONMENT Environment plays an important role to make the living beings healthy in the Earth. One of the kind, generous and intelligent living being is human being. So, human being is the superior social animal who is totally responsible for the use of natural resources, conservation of animals and plants or insects around.
Humanity’s entire life support system depends on the well-being of all the environment factors. We are the responsible force or member of the SAVE ENVIRONMENT Community to create balance in ecosystem in our surrounding. We have natural (light, air, water, etc.), industrial (Villages, cities, factories, etc.) and social (Schools, universities, companies, WordPress, etc.) environments. The future of environment is in danger. So, it’s an initiative to promote SAVe ENVIRONMENT through WordPress Writing.
How does it work? So, ‘GREAT ACHIEVER “महासिद्धी” BLOGGER AWARD’ help spread peace around the world sharing love, fun and happiness creating a beautiful Global Village. The term global village has been used to express the idea that people throughout the world are interconnected through the use of new media technologies.

कभी कभी कुछ अलग लिखने का मन करता है, आज इसके लिए मुझे बहाना भी मिल गया क्योंकि ब्लॉग लेखन संबंधी एक एवार्ड के लिए मेरा नॉमिनेशन हो गया।
मैंने, सेवानिवृत्ति से पूर्व, 22 वर्ष तक सार्वजनिक क्षेत्र की एक महानवरत्न कंपनी में काम किया, बहुत सी बार अपने ब्लॉग्स में कंपनी का नाम लिखा है, आज नहीं लिखूंगा। इस कंपनी में रहते हुए मैंने अनेक आयोजन किए, जिनमें राष्ट्रीय स्तर के कवि-कलाकार शामिल हुए।
बहुत से आयोजनों में बहुत सारे लोगों को पुरस्कार मिले, कंपनी को भी बहुत से एवार्ड मिले, जिनको स्वीकार करने के संबंध में, बहुत से विनम्रतापूर्वक पुरस्कार स्वीकार करने संबंधी व्याख्यान भी मैंने लिखे, पुरस्कार पाने वाले लोगों की प्रशंसा भी की। लेकिन एक हसरत मन में रह गई कि कभी मैं भी पुरस्कार प्राप्त करूं। ऐसा कभी नहीं हुआ यद्यपि कंपनी के बड़े से बड़े अधिकारियों और राजनैतिक अतिथियों ने भी मेरे कुशल कार्यक्रम संचालन की प्रशंसा की।
मैं कंपनी में राजभाषा कार्यान्वयन के क्षेत्र में कार्य कर रहा था। जब कंपनी में राजभाषा संबंधी गतिविधियों के संबंध में एक पुरस्कार प्रारंभ किया गया, तब गलती से पहला पुरस्कार हमारी परियोजना को मिल गया, क्योंकि उसके मानकों में पत्राचार के आंकडों के अलावा अन्य गतिविधियों, जैसे पत्रिका प्रकाशन, कवि सम्मेलन के आयोजन आदि के संबंध में भी काफी अंक थे।
जब यह गलती हो गई, उसके बाद हमारे केंद्रीय कार्यालय में बैठे राजभाषा के धुरंधर ने मानकों में ऐसा सुधार किया कि अब पुरस्कार केवल और केवल पत्राचार संबंधी झूठी रिपोर्ट के आधार पर ही प्राप्त किया जा सकता था और मैंने इस बारे में सोचना ही छोड़ दिया था।
वैसे पुरानी कहावत है कि सूरज निकलता है तो देर-सवेर सभी उसको स्वीकार करते हैं, सम्मान देते हैं। मुझे लगता है कि आज के समय यह आपकी विज्ञापन क्षमता, प्रेज़ेंटेशन आदि ही हैं, जो आपको मान्यता और सम्मान दिलाते हैं।
असल में एक ब्लॉगर साथी ने- एक एवार्ड के लिए मेरा नॉमिनेशन किया तो सुखद आश्चर्य हुआ, क्योंकि मुझे लगता है कि कुछ लोग इनको प्राप्त करने के लिए नहीं बने होते और कुछ लोग लगातार एवार्ड प्राप्त करने के लिए अभिशप्त होते हैं।
मैं पुनः, मुझे एवार्ड हेतु नॉमिनेट करने वाले मित्र के प्रति आभार व्यक्त करता हूँ, जो अपने ब्लॉग्स में योग के बारे में बहुत अच्छी जानकारी देते हैं और सुंदर कविताएं भी लिखते हैं। (क्योंकि यह पुराना प्रसंग है इसलिए अब उनका नाम नहीं दे रहा हूँ|)
मेरे प्रिय गायक मुकेश जी का ये गाना याद आ गया, क्योंकि इसमें भी ईनाम का ज़िक्र है, ईनाम, पुरस्कार, एवार्ड ! गीत फिल्म-देवर का है, आनंद बख्शी जी ने लिखा है और संगीतकार हैं- रोशन जी, बर्दाश्त कर लीजिए-
बहारों ने मेरा चमन लूटकर खिज़ां को ये इल्ज़ाम क्यों दे दिया| किसीने चलो दुश्मनी की मगर इसे दोस्ती नाम क्यों दे दिया|
मैं समझा नहीं ऐ मेरे हमनशीं सज़ा ये मिली है मुझे किस लिये, के साक़ी ने लब से मेरे छीन कर किसी और को जाम क्यों दे दिया|
मुझे क्या पता था कभी इश्क़ में रक़ीबों को कासिद बनाते नहीं| खता हो गई मुझसे कासिद मेरे तेरे हाथ पैगाम क्यों दे दिया|
इलाही यहाँ तेरे इन्साफ़ के बहुत मैंने चर्चे सुने हैं मगर सज़ा की जगह एक खतावार को भला तूने ईनाम क्यों दे दिया|
आज फिर से दुष्यंत कुमार जी की एक गजल शेयर कर रहा हूँ| दुष्यंत कुमार जी हिन्दी के एक प्रतिनिधि कवि थे लेकिन उनको सामान्य जनता के बीच विशेष ख्याति आपातकाल में लिखी गई गज़लों के कारण मिली थी, जिनको बाद में एक संकलन – ‘साये में धूप’ के रूप में प्रकाशित किया गया| प्रस्तुत है दुष्यंत कुमार जी के इसी संकलन से यह गजल-
नज़र-नवाज़ नज़ारा बदल न जाए कहीं, जरा-सी बात है मुँह से निकल न जाए कहीं|
वो देखते है तो लगता है नींव हिलती है, मेरे बयान को बंदिश निगल न जाए कहीं|
यों मुझको ख़ुद पे बहुत ऐतबार है लेकिन, ये बर्फ आंच के आगे पिघल न जाए कहीं|
चले हवा तो किवाड़ों को बंद कर लेना, ये गरम राख़ शरारों में ढल न जाए कहीं|
तमाम रात तेरे मैकदे में मय पी है, तमाम उम्र नशे में निकल न जाए कहीं|
कभी मचान पे चढ़ने की आरज़ू उभरी, कभी ये डर कि ये सीढ़ी फिसल न जाए कहीं|
ये लोग होमो-हवन में यकीन रखते है, चलो यहां से चलें, हाथ जल न जाए कहीं|

Today I would like to share that a fellow blogger who writes nice posts by the name- साधक, his Blog ID – https://vjsadhak.wordpress.com/ has nominated me for ‘Bee Love Award’. I am very thankful to my friend who is a creative writer and I enjoy his writings a lot.
By the name of the award, I understand that it inspires to be an engine for spreading love, whatever we write, we can impress people by our creativity and may be knowledge also, but the basic thing that should always be there is that we keep the flame of love burning in our heart and wherever possible, should contribute for spreading love in our society, love for all human beings and not only humans but all living species.
I again thank my fellow blogger , who writes by the name साधक, his blog ID being https://vjsadhak.wordpress.com/. Incidentally I do not know his name and he doesn’t know mine. For example while he very graciously nominated me and mentioned my name as ‘Samay’, perhaps by seeing my website name –www.samaysakshi.in . I may by the way tell that my name is Shri Krishna Sharma, for others also, since it is not mentioned in my blog posts. I have also mentioned that he writes with the name साधक. I again thank my fellow blogger and friend for nominating me.
These are the guidelines for those getting this award
1. Attach the Bee Love Logo on the top
2. Ping back to the one who nominated, now say me i.e. www.samaysakshi.in (Shri Krishna Sharma)
3. Nominate some of your fellow bloggers.
Now I being a very simple and easy going person. I do not ask any questions and do not take much trouble also.
I have already taken the first 2 steps as per the guidelines, the third one- nominating fellow bloggers for the award, it is rather a very difficult job for me and I treat all my fellow bloggers, my friends as very creative persons and do not want to take the seat of a judge.
I request all my fellow bloggers, who read this post and wish to take it forward, they may consider it a nomination of them from my side and I would be very happy if they take it forward.
I again thank my friend who nominated me and also thank in advance, anybody who would take it forward.
