If only

If only, we could be the opposite poles but not on opposite poles. If only, we could be the opposite charges and not charging at one another. If only, there was a point of intersection and not a point of diversion. If only, we could be different from each other and not indifferent to. A…

The Giving Life?

I bubble and boil and cause turmoil. Thickening hardening as I churn I cause pain, Oh! I burn. Bringing chaos, causing gloom… a sense of only doom. Yes I am this but also that; the one who alone for a fact, is the salve to soothe and calm. Protect, nurture, save from harm. You see…

Piece on Peace…published!

In 2008, I was the class teacher of 2A, don’t remember whether I used to teach English, Math or EVS but that doesn’t matter. It was the day of Parent Teacher Meeting. As is my habit, I was a quarter of an hour early in the class. Even as I was settling a lady asked…

Peace, please!

One of Abhay’s cousins is an artist. She not only splashes colours around but also keeps spreading thoughts. To her a thought is a thought and art is art irrespective of the medium. Recently she started a kind of campaign on Instagram under the title ‘healingwiththedove’, a peace initiative. She shared a template bearing the…

Random Thought! #26

I push every thing under ‘Random Thought’ when lazy to think of a title, or at times when the head is occupied. There are dragons in the head who dance in the pale moon light. And their shadows play, when the sun is bright! If only I could sit unmindful of them, in my world….

In quest…

A mind full of whys, and nays and ayes. What is right, what is wrong or are they for ‘who’ to belong? A buzz, a whirr, a crawl, a creep. the questions that refuse to sleep. I wonder where to go? Where’s that rishi, the yogi, who for sure would know. Every door shut, I…

Feathered Endurance

A step forward and then three back A glimmer of light and then darkness This is how life’s meant to be? Don’t expect love, fame or pity, nor ever feel guilty. Life is yours as you…

Vicious Cycle

She was respected for her grace and loved for her charm. She was lusted upon for the treasures inborn. Men would kill one another for her attention, even if a cursory glance. But it didn’t matter to her, there was only one for whom her heart would dance… the hermit who lived at the edge…
