“Aawara hoon, Artist hoon, Aazaad hoon!” - Ronak Sawant


Aawara hoon, Artist hoon, Aazaad hoon!
Khud se seekha hai.
Khud ko pehchana hai.
Iss sundar si duniya mein main,
Khushi ka paigaam leke jee raha hoon.

Aawara hoon, Artist hoon, Aazaad hoon!
Na kal ki hai chinta,
Na marne ka hai darr,
Bas yuhin chala main hasta, gaata aur muskuraata,
Aisa hai mera yeh pyaara safar.

Aawara hoon, Artist hoon, Aazaad hoon!
Jee raha hoon.
Khush hoon.
Itna kaafi hai.
Itna kaafi hai.

"DANCE CHANGED ME, DANCE MADE ME!" - Ronak Sawant


Never in my life had I thought that a kid as crazy like me would ever have a voice or would be able to express or to move body in a way that is so different from other human beings. It is dance that did this magic to me. This might sound weird, I know! But dance is truly a magic and to be a dancer is like creating all the magic. Dance changed my life. Dance made me the person I am today.

Ever since dance came into my life, it’s like I’ve found the happiness of my life. It’s something that makes me feel alive, makes me feel connected to my soul, makes my life complete. If dancing doesn’t existed then I don’t think I would have existed.

To be a dancer is beautiful,
To be a dancer is a dream come true,
To be a dancer is magical,
To be a dancer is to be me!

Dance Changed Me, Dance Made Me!
And yes, Dance Saved Me!

“Journey 2016”


2016... this is one year which I never wanted to end. But everything in life has the start as well as the end, so you just have to deal with it. Still I think this 2016 year ended up so fast isn’t it? It’s just few hours left now for the New Year i.e. 2017. I really can’t believe that the year 2016 is coming to an end. So before the calendar changes and the year 2016 officially ends, I would like to look back at my journey of 2016 to reminisce and cherish all the memories that I have created, dreams that I have accomplished this entire year and say thank you for this life.

Here are the beautiful highlights of my Journey 2016 in no particular order:

  • PERFORMANCE at MUMBAI :: Rangsharda Auditorium, Bandra...

I had a great time performing here at my hometown, my home ground Bandra on 30 January, 2016. This was right before my TY BSc IT internal exams where I nailed the both performance as well as exams.

  • LONAVLA | Travel Diary...


This one day fun trip to Lonavla with my IT friends a month before the final exams turned out into the trip to remember.

  • FINAL YEAR IT PROJECT...


This project work also happened to be the part of my 2016 highlights because I myself created, designed and developed a website on my own as the partial fulfillment for my BSc IT graduation studies. I am so proud of this because I did it myself and I learned so much in the process.

  • GOT MYSELF FAVORITE MOBILE :: iPhone 6s Gold...


Thank you mummy for all the love and support! It is all because of you I got this!

  • GRADUATION IN 2016 | Childhood Wish...

It was my childhood wish to become a graduate in the year 2016 (my birth-date year). Is it a coincidence or something other, I don’t know! But I made this wish come true by passing all my BSc IT exams without any ATKT or Additional exam. In fact I passed my final exams and pursued my BSc IT graduation with a distinction. This is like a punch to all the people who said to me that I can’t do it. I am so happy being an IT graduate and own that degree!

The first half of my 2016 was full of studies as it was my final year of BSc IT degree. Still I managed somehow to do the other stuff I love, in the process. And I did both in styles.

  • KOLHAPUR | Travel Diary...

 

This 2 days trip to Kolhapur turned out to be unexpected. I didn’t knew that it would be this much fun there as I just visited this place to meet God i.e. visit some temples and have my time with the God. But I ended up finding myself. There is a quote that I have written:

"Bhagwan se milne gaya tha,
Khudse milkar aaya."
in English
("I was gone to meet God,
But I came back finding myself.")


All in I visited five places during this trip Mahalakshmi Temple, Jyotiba Temple, Rankala Lake, Narsobawadi and Jejuri. It was great fun exploring Kolhapur with my love Canon 600D.

  • PERFORMANCE at MUMBAI :: Bhaidas Auditorium, Vile Parle...


I performed here for like 5 times; two times in the month of October and three times every day on 15, 16 and 17 November. I had a great time performing, well I always have but what made this performance more special and crazy is that I gave my final BSc IT board exams beside this place at UPG College, as this was my exam centre. So performing beside this college for these many times it was like celebrating my graduation and life every time I stepped on stage.


  • BHANDARDARA | Travel Diary...


This trip has been one of the amazing trips I have had in my life so far because it is always fun when you have your entire family with you. I truly had a great time with my family and it was really fun exploring the unexplored. We did boating at Arthur Hill Lake, Dancing at Clubhouse, the Pool game I played with my dad, the fun times and all the laughs that we had, etc and our stay at Anandvan Resort was just amazing and it was shit cold at night there.

  • I wrote and published my first ever Song titled “Journey of Life” on 21 October, 2016. This is an English song. This song is very special and close to me and it basically depicts the meaning of life and its lifelong journey.

  • Wrote and published my first ever Dance Poem titled “I Dance, I Dance & I Dance!” on January 4, 2016. This is not just a Poem but an Anthem for every person who is passionate and is committed to this beautiful art form called Dance.

  • Wrote and published first ever Poetry in my Maayboli (mother tongue) Marathi language titled "थेंब आनंदाचे (पाऊस आला)" on July 8, 2016. This poem is a message to the Rains and the God of Rain due to the big problem occurred called Dearth since last three years in our state Maharashtra. The farmers were committing suicides; there was a lack of water everywhere, etc which made me to do this as an Artist. And just after when I published this poem, the Rains started coming this year in full swing. This was indeed the drops of happiness I tell you! I am glad that I played my part and contributed something in this. Thank you Rains, keep coming and keep making us happy with your drops because 'तु आम्हाला हवा आहेस' (we need you).

  • Wrote and published total 7 Poems this year in English, Hindi and Marathi language.

  • Wrote and published total 23 Blogs this year including 7 poems, 1 song and this blog post.

  • I started something special called "The Note Book". This is an online book released by me in which the pages of book are published online day-by-day. So this is most probably my debut book that is full of notes, thoughts, lessons and life.


  • BECOMING A MEMBER OF GOOGLE+ CREATE...


When Google finds your Photography style and other art interesting; and you get an email as an invitation to be a part of their program. I became a Member of Google+ Create and also a Trusted Tester.

  • Getting a Verification tick-mark badge on Social Media...


One of my crazy bucket lists got fulfilled this year. I got verified on YouTube and Google+. This is like an award of appreciation for the art that you create as an Artist and share here on social media.

  • And many more amazing things that happened in this Journey 2016 that I am so thankful and grateful for this life!

For the coming New Year, I don’t want to make any Resolutions or something as I don’t like making a Resolution. But one thing is for sure that I’ll keep on doing the things I love as an Artist/Human; keep achieving my goals, keep having fun and living life. I just want to say thank you to this life and thank you to all the people I have in my life. I love you all so much!

I would like to end this blog by saying 'Bye-bye to 2016 – you were lovely' and 'Hello to 2017'. Just like stepping towards the New Year leaving previous year behind; let’s only take happy moments, good times and fun memories with us that made our life a great adventure filled with joy by leaving behind all the sadness, failures, sorrow and all the bad times we have had. I mean let’s just forget the sadness, take forward happiness and make a new start. Cheers!

P.S. – I have decided that this will be my last blog of "Years Journey". Happy New Year 2017 and I hope 2017 will be beautiful for all of us. Take care and Have fun! :)

“In A Dream I Meet Santa” - A Poem by Ronak Sawant


On a bed I was sleeping,
Singing jingle-bell, jingle-bell in my mind,
For a Santa Claus to come and for my gift remind,
I didn’t know but I was dreaming.

The inner child in me wanted the gift,
And wanted to meet the lovely Santa along with his car rift,
So I kept singing the song continuously,
In my dream I never thought I can be so silly.

With eyes being closed but mind being somewhere,
I was just waiting for the Santa to arrive early from the window here,
Along with a gift, to hear that Santa’s big laugh,
Oh, I thought it could be more than enough!

I was singing on & on but this time with a clap,
I am glad no one at home saw this and gave me a slap,
I see the Santa giving gifts one-by-one and coming by my house,
In this beautiful dream I was so engross.

Then suddenly the sound of something,
I thought Santa has come in our wing,
My eyes got open and I started looking outside the window,
I realize very soon that I was dreaming and there’s no Santa from the snow.

Under the pillow there was no gift,
The Santa’s laugh – HO HO HO,
I started to believe it’s just NO NO NO,
I then said Merry Christmas to the world, myself & the dreamy Santa and went back to sleep feeling my life a gift.

The Note Book by Ronak Sawant


You all know how I started my writing journey and discovered the writer in me. But do you know where this writing idea, the view of my blog was planned and designed; it was all done in the note book. Yes, the Navneet Publications brown long note book which the school students use. I had many of them which were full blank and half used in school, back in time. I have couple of diaries but I hardly write anything in it. I prefer writing in my school note books which I still have with me. The feeling of opening the school note book and the essence of writing in it is something different than the diary. I feel more of a student than a writer while writing in it. This is really good for any writer as you don’t have to pretend to be one holding that diary in a hand. Also, I don’t want to let people around me know that I am writing something, so the note book plays its part in this I guess! I like to give people surprise by publishing my writing and not while penning it down.

The title ‘The Note Book’ has a deep story behind it which I would like to share. Each and every writing piece that I had  written and published on my blog whether it would be a poem, a song and a blog itself is all penned down in the note book first and then later in MS Word and published on a blog. So the title came from my habit of writing in the school note book instead of a diary. Hence the name - “The Note Book”.

The Note Book is more than just a note book for me. This is a part of me, my journey and life. This is most probably my Debut Book which I am launching and releasing online on the internet. All the pages inside of this book would be published day by day on its official Facebook Page and Instagram. My aim is to write 550 pages in The Note Book. This is not a random number but it has a special meaning as it is taken from the title ‘The Note Book’ itself, using some mathematics logic concept. Writing these many pages is the challenge that I think I have created for myself. When I will finish this own challenge I will proudly and happily say that “The Note Book is complete!”

The Note Book is full of notes, full of thoughts, full of lessons and full of life that will make you as well as me to think and change something, learn and understand life and so much more. With a mission to make a positive change, inspire and improve the world; hope ‘The Note Book’ will change some people lives.

If you want to be a part of this dream then please join The Note Book’s official Facebook and Instagram, so that we can live this beautiful journey together. Let’s make the world a place full of love, happiness, unity and peace. That’s my dream, before I die I want to see people loving each other, hugging each other, smiling and being happy in life!

"The Note Book" is available here:

Thank you! :)

“Zindagi Ek Hi Baar Milti Hai...” - A Poem by Ronak Sawant


Zindagi ek hi baar milti hai,
Dil se jee le,
Khul ke jee le.

Dobara nahin milegi yeh zindagi,
Waqt hone se pehle karle isse dosti,
Waqt hone se pehle karle saari masti.

"A Child Forever"


Childhood is the root of our lives. The root which grows into a plant (young age) and then later into a tree (old age), as the time passes. I am 22 now and I am just into the plant stage. This plant stage is considered to be the most serious stage of life. This is the stage where most of the people fail due to some reasons and this is the stage which fades away the root stage of our lives... childhood!

But like a plant, I too feel my roots (the child in me) everyday. And to be honest, I just love to meet that child in me because this child is the one who taught me how to live a free life without stress and worries. In fact this child is the one who made me realize the real meaning of happiness that it exists in the little things of day-to-day life. Even though being a plant (young) now, I don’t find happiness in big things. This child is the one who made it so clear to me that love is the ultimate cure. The more love you give, the more love you will receive. Even though tomorrow when I will turn into a Tree, I will forever keep a child in me alive and will always try my best to meet my root (the child in me) every single day.

So here’s to the one who is writing this blog not as a young Ronak Sawant but as a child Ronak Sawant and here’s to everyone who likes to meet & have kept the child in them alive:
Happy Children’s Day!

This is me when I was almost 5 years old. So many good memories when I was a child!

A child forever!
