Masks

Khushi ke is naqaab mein chupaaye sabne apne asli chehre hain, Na jaane kis roshan muskaan ke peeche kitne andhere hai….     (Translation: Behind a mask of happiness, everyone has hidden their true face. Can’t say behind which sparkling smile, darkness pervades without a trace…)   Pic Courtesy : Shushant Singh Rajput

Inamorata

She is like the dark of the moon, Far, yet she raises and calms the oceans in you One look, and you know, love is not about hearts racing, skipping a beat, but it is rather the feeling that for the first time, there is someone who brings you peace; By merely being with you, […]

The Void

Do you too at times, feel like you are stuck in a void? It’s a strange feeling; You are not sad, nothing bad has happened to you; You aren’t depressed either; Things are (relatively) going well. But still, you cannot understand what you exactly feel and why you feel the way you feel. And no […]

Original

Khud ko zamaane ke paimaane pe kuch yoon rijhaane mein lagi hai duniya, Ki gar ba-dastoor ho to taskeen, mukammal ho…   (Translation: Everyone is so blinded in trying to be at par with the society and its norms, that you’d be the most impeccable, and content, if you just remain Original/un-altered) ( ba-dastoor = […]

Faceless

Let’s be faceless, I won’t ask how you look, You don’t answer what you do. We don’t need to go through the ice-breakers, Lets cut through the talk about the weather, politics and work. Let us be anonymous, and not tell anything private, But let’s be open, and share what’s personal. So I don’t want […]

Memory

Ek haseen haafiza ki tarah ho tum, Mujhse mehroom ho, Par mujhe mein mehsoos hote ho… (Translation: You’re a reminiscence of a wonderful memory; I know I am deprived of you, yet somehow you can still be felt in me… ) (Haafiza: memory; Mehroom: Deprived; Mehsoos: feel)   (Image Courtesy: Google.com)

Moon

I wonder at times, To liken you to the moon – Mesmerising. Soothing. Far- Shining solitarily as I see; God, how you move the oceans in me!

Resonance

It saddens me at times to see literature oversimplifying things; and in its course undermining it. Take for example, when we say, that ‘our frequencies match’. It is such a profound thing; not only metaphorically but scientifically. Each and everything in this Universe vibrates in a unique way, at its unique frequency; A person finding […]

Renaissance

And when all of this is over, Can we start over again? Learning from the mistakes we did; Connect with things that actually matter; Value the blessing of being For when the virus is gone, Let’s fill that void with gratitude And let that too be as contagious, (only in a good light) ‘Cause the […]

Wall

I have built a wall around myself, I don’t allow anyone to enter it, Not because I don’t trust anyone. But life has taught me, time and again that whenever you come too close, they eventually, unfailingly, send you apart. And all you’re left with are some cracks in the wall which only reminds you […]
