Loss of the Treasure

A few years back I lost all of my treasures; my whole earnings, all savings, all the bank balance of my entire life which consist all my poems, short stories, personal diaries, all the Ideas of movies, serials & song writings…

It was like loosing all that I had… felt like I should end my life now… what  would I do without all of my writings… those were the only treasure I had… for all my life I earned these treasures only, nothing else not anything…  where would I find all those treasures; all my poems, all my short stories, all my movie-serial-song ideas, all the personal diaries with all the details of my every day life History of all the years gone by…

One person present at the moment when ‘the case’ was revealed to me, said: ‘aisa kyon bol rahe hain… life rahi to aap fir likh lenge… aap hi ne to likha tha wo sab, aap rahe to fir likh lenge… khuda pe bharosa rakhein…’ I thought, Yes… may be its Lord’s wish… may be Jesus wanted me to be free from all my past… “you will know the truth and the truth shall set you free…”

This happened some times in the second half of the year 2009.

You are Precious

Also, I recalled one of my friends saying, “stop living in the past… at least for some time, just stop writing Diary and reading it again n again…” During my Ulhasnagar stay in 1997-98 one of my good friend would often tell me this, “thode din ke liye diary likhna-padhna band kar do… tera mind hamesha past mein hi ulajha rehta hai…” So I thought: Ok, may be it’s God’s way of telling me to get rid of all my past now, and to move ahead, to start afresh… but what about all the other writings namely my poems, short stories, numerous ideas for novels, film-serials & songs…? Well Man, you can write so many new things again, a whole new world is awaiting… the Lord have an all new and deferent plan for you… I thought.

[Hey, is this the same atheist-communist-writer-journo Sylani Singh? My old friends may got ashtonized with the developments & may think that way! Well my dear friends, let me tell you the most wonderful, the most beautiful ever story of my life; listen to it carefully…]

By the time had started believing in Christ, though considering myself as a Christian since the end of July 2004 itself; but was willing to do nothing to get Baptized thinking that I should to be a successful person first and than get baptized, so that no one can say that I came to Christ, to His holy Church, for worldly means say for monetary or financial benefits as there are a common misconception among the people regarding the newly baptized faithful… I doesn’t wanted the same ‘tag’ for myself; I wanted to let the whole world know that I chose Christ and His Church because He loves me… He saved me from death,  from committing suicide… it was He who assured me that even the whole world is against you, even not a single person in this big-fat whole world doesn’t care about you to live or die, I care for you… and want you to live because I love you… ‘even if a mother abandoned her own child I wont leave you… you are precious for me… I want you to live…’

All this happened in my own home in Jamshedpur…

A Journey to Jesus…

A Beautiful Testimony from Chris Sylani Sinh

Chris Sylani Sinh picture

Since I was born in Tata Main Hospital, Bishtupur, I have lived in the Telco colony, Jamshedpur since my childhood uptil the age of 10. So obviously the colony has always been very close to my heart. On 11 Dec 1981 we moved into our own house, an area surrounded by hills, where i wrote my 1st poem and than, the very first short story. And at the age of 14 when I was a class 9 student, I directed my first play in our school…

In 1992, However, my life changed drastically when for the very first time in my life, I attended a literary function. A totally new routine started… travelling, writing, attending literary seminars… and, finally I found myself joining a local newspaper by the end of 1995. But, as they say, it was just the tip of the iceberg; just the beginning…

I left my home city… reached New Delhi- my dream destination at that time, but within the first 3 days of my 10 day stay, I found my long-preserved, highly placed “Kutub Minar” broken… I returned with a broken-heart, like a person who has lost everything- all his dreams! It was the 2nd week of August 1996.

On 3rd September of the same year, I decided to go Mumbai! I found myself “living a completely meaningless life” there in the city. At that time, it never crossed my mind to go to Calcutta (now, Kolkata), not for even a single moment, though it was the closest mega-city. Why, I don’t know!

And it was 2nd October 1996 when I stepped into Mumbai… an Island city… a city surrounded by sea-water… and here, as they say, the rest is history… lol😉 Well, since then, a lot of water has flowed beneath the bridge… and I’m still standing there, the same place… ham hain wahin, ham they jahaan… but not the same person anymore…

I’m telling you, truly: When Jesus enters your life you cannot be the same person any longer, nor I… how could I??

Praise the Lord!!!

A MUST READ… ♥ TOUCHING STORY ♥

Recently I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.
Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Father said, “I love you, and I wish you enough.”
The daughter replied, “Dad, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.”
They kissed and the daughter left. The Father walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?”
“Yes, I have,” I replied. “Forgive me for asking, but why is this a for ever good-bye?”.
“I am old, and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is – the next trip back will be for my funeral,” he said.
“When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, ‘I wish you enough.’ May I ask what that means?”
He began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone..” He paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and he smiled even more. “When we said, ‘I wish you enough,’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them.”

Then turning toward me, he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory.
> I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
> I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
> I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
> I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
> I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
> I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
> I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good- bye.

He then began to cry and walked away.

NOTE:
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them.

Prayer for All Souls Day

The Prayer of St. Gertrude, below, is one of the most famous of the prayers for souls in purgatory. St. Gertrude the Great was a Benedictine nun and mystic who lived in the 13th century. According to tradition, our Lord promised her that 1000 souls would be released from purgatory each time it is said devoutly.

“Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.”

What is All Souls Day?  All Souls Day is when the Church commemorates and prays for the holy souls in Purgatory, undergoing purification of their sins before entering heaven. All Souls Day is November 2nd, right after All Saints Day. These All Souls Day Prayers relate to these themes, including praying for those in Purgatory. More Info: All Souls Day.
