The Walk

It seems so vivid, although it has been too long, etched in the memory, like a distant favourite song That starry summer night, the holding of hands, That coy smile..that damned strand Luscious moonlight on your face And as we walked to your place… The hour-glass ran out of sand. It was time to let […]

Choices

Life can be understood as a grand game of choices And the butterfly effect that follows…. We often choose a transient good time over a permanent good thing. Surely we’re free to make our own choices, but what we are not free from are the consequences of those choices!

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 […]

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)

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 […]

Dichotomy

I never understood the need for dichotomy, in whatever it is that we do In order to love a Messi, why does one need to hate a Ronaldo too? Why is it so hard to agree that things can co-exist? Why can’t I be interesting without being an extrovert? Can’t I like a thing/group and […]

Forever

  So darling, In between all the uncertainty and improbability existing amidst the microcosm of the universe Let’s for once just be.. Perhaps incomplete; celestially insignificant; and nothing to show otherwise Yet, exquisitely at peace —to have found a space-time in the vast universal fabric —to exist together, albeit for a small moment, but which was […]
