Chitrangada likes to express her creative mind by writing fiction and poetry.They reflect her mood and are inspired by the beauty of Nature.

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future.

It is something, you design for the present.

Spreading Happiness

If you want to contribute to the World, in some way,

If you have a secret wish, to bring change in the world,

If you want to be the reason, of someone's joy,

If you want to wipe out the tears, of the less fortunate.


The time is right here, right now,

No more excuses, of having no time,

Or money, or opportunities, or fears,

Take some baby steps, and start today itself,


Spread happiness and joy,

Make it a habit, and a routine.

Start with your precious self first,

Then your family and friends,


Smile, laugh and have compassion,

Spread positive words and thoughts,

Listen attentively and offer help,

Learn and teach creative skills.



Happiness is so infectious,

And you can spread it too,

This infection is so precious,

Worthy of being passed upon,

The cycle of happiness is vicious.

Happiness is a state of mind

Staying happy, doesn’t mean, everything is perfect.

It means, you have decided to look, beyond imperfections.

        Thank you for your sublime quotes. They are as much the cake as the icing. If you need any from Guruji, just say in google: Sri Chinmoy and Peace; Sri Chinmoy and happiness and so on and a lot will pop up.

        You chose some great souls and the quotes are quite meaningful. Hari Om Tat Sat!

        I completely agree with you, that first of all, we must make ourselves happy, in order to make others happy. As I said, happiness attracts happiness, just as a smile is responded with a smile.

        Many thanks for appreciating the poem.

        Happy New Year to you too.

        Thank you Anusha, for reading and appreciating the poem!

        Good to see you after a long time.

        You got it right—My mind was going through such thoughts, on the last day of the year, which resulted in the composition of this poem.

        Everyday is a new beginning and it’s wise, not to regret about what happened in the past. Life is good, if we learn to move on, by being happy ourselves and by making others happy too.

        A Very Happy New Year to you! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

        Thanks for sharing your positive thoughts.

        Chitrangada, this is a delightful poem with a beautiful message. I love the last stanza

        "Happiness is so infectious,

        And you can spread it too,

        This infection is so precious,

        Worthy of being passed upon,

        The cycle of happiness is vicious."

        The quotes are great and the Happiness song is a joy. Thank you for sharing.

        I love the part about spreading positive words to yourself first, and then to family and friends. That message is very important for the New Year. Make a deposit into yourself first then you have more for others to withdraw. An excellent piece to start off the New Year!

        An excellently timed poem. Making ourselves happy and sharing joy doesn't have to be a grand gesture.

        Many people don't realize the power each of us has to change someone's world.

        Wonderful sentiment.
