A Beautiful Home



Har ghar chup chaap se yeh kehta hai… (Every Home tells a silent tale)

Ki andar usmein kaun rehta hai… (That who stays in it)

Chhat bataati hai... yeh kiska aasmaan hai? (The roof says... whose sky is this)

Rang kehte hain… kiska yeh jahaan hai? (The colours say... whose world is this)

Kamron mein kiski kalpana jhalakti hai? (Rooms have whose imagination)

Is farsh par nange pair kiske bacche chalte hain? (Whose children run bare-feet on the floors)

Kaun chun chunke isey pyaar se sajaata hai? (Who decorates it with the choicest things)

Kaun is Makaan mein apna Ghar basaata hai? (Who dwells & makes this House a Home)

Har ghar chup chaap se yeh kehta hai... (Every Home tells a silent tale)

Ki andar usmein kaun rehta hai… (That who stays in it)

This ad sets us thinking.
The use of the word Ghar (Home) is notable in contrast to the word Makaan (House).

I feel a House becomes a Home with the investment of the following extra things:

Time- Our Time is the most precious gift for a Home. Just like ‘Rome was not built in a day’, ‘Home is not built in a day’! A Home needs dedicated time & becomes better.

Love, Care & Cooperation- Allocating Time is easy when we love & care for our Home & our loved ones. Love & Care makes our Home special & rare! Like in the Asian Paints ad when a Defence officer welcomes his wife Home by doing up her room in her style!

Planning- The inhabitants must cooperate together to decide on what they want for their dream Home. What colour of the walls? Which paintings to display in which rooms? Which curtain-cloth to consider? What type of cutlery?

Implementation- The future Home’s inhabitants have to undertake action to implement their plans.

Resources- Implementation of plans requires resources like time, energy and of course- Vitamin-M- Money!

Passion & Devoted Attention- Homes become even better when they experience the passion!

Laughter, Respect, Trust, Goodness…& Virtues- It is said, “Charity begins at Home”. Also, “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. Why not have beautiful eyes & hands & participate in the celebration of beauty?

Happiness & Peace – The Home must not be disputed or under court-case. That can rob away the well-being of the members.


Sweet words are exchanged generously,
Music reverberates in the atmosphere.
Wide smiles & laughter sparkle brilliantly.
Sunlight has competition & cheer here!
Wonderful fragrance wafts everywhere,
So many rare treasures here to share!
All our favorite things are a touch away,
The most awesome food makes our day!
It appeals to all the senses of you & me!
It is associated with esteem, achievement, safety....
The place where we love to reach & to roam!
Yes, I’m referring to- ‘HOME SWEET HOME!’

      Actually no pics so that readers can imagine the beauty of a beautiful home through my words! Visualization is a powerful personal experience as we tend to paint what we want to see as per our wish! :)
      I love the super-cool adjectives- Bubbly & Vivacious :) :)
