Ray of Hope
I do not fear those Iron bars,
In which you want to cage me.
Instead I am proud of myself,
As you fear my courage to measure the world.
I am that bird,
If you will cage, will never get.
And if I be free,
To fly high with my wings,
Only then you will get me.
Happy New Year!

It is a wonderful feeling when one’s dreams come true.
Diwali 2020 i.e. November 14th, 2020 was a similar day for me!

Pristine Emotions is a collection of feelings, emotions, expressions, gratitude and human values.

World of Masks (मुखौटों की दुनिया)
English Translation of original post:
I have seen a strange fanciful passion: keeping numerous masks. No, these are not masks related to Covid 19 pandemic, but are masks of the faces worn to hide true emotions! It’s better to name them as Face Masks.
Worn through centuries, these face masks are used as per place, person, time, status, work, requirement, resources, money etc. My friend, one person has numerous face masks ranging from deceit, greed, lie, deception, anger to jealousy and much more. Within only one day, many face masks are applied and removed as per the necessity and I don’t understand how people carry these along?
Anyways, I hope one day I get to know the seller or the market of these masks. I strongly feel that I should also purchase a few for myself.
The thing is, in this World of Masks, I have often felt my real face getting exposed, robbed, hurt, injured and felt devastatingly cheated.
