Illusion or Authenticity!

I dreamt I dreamt of beautiful things I dreamt with open eyes. All my life I was taught To dream big Fly high And so with open eyes I dreamt of open skies. Of peace, calm And of little love. I have dreamt of inane faith And believed That everything will find its way. Oh-Continue reading “Illusion or Authenticity!”

An Unwilling Bouzouki

Sitting on chairs in proper alignment It seems a long ago, when we students were huddled about, Celebrating India’s independence was the days’ requirement Making our English teacher proud.   Constantly, we had chided and pleased To do something else as a substitute to teach, We did it often, played adventures Making memories after memoriesContinue reading “An Unwilling Bouzouki”

Hopes And Expectations!

Just wondering.. While on the one hand you are striving towards it, and on the other there is only faith and a vain belief. What exactly happens? Does that belief turn into the expectations that we are taught not to have? Or the hope itself is a reflection on the said expectations which we areContinue reading “Hopes And Expectations!”

Krishna talked sense into me..

This post is going to be a little different from what I usually write here, but by the end of it you might think I am back to my usual.

Sometimes…

Sometimes all you need to do is Stay back, and let it all pass. To sit awhile, and let it all pass.   Sometimes all you need to do is Let the blood drain away to your toes. To let the air be sucked out till your ears.   Sometimes all you need to doContinue reading “Sometimes…”

Fact or Fable

Deep memories submerged within, Sweet, sad, happy and a little evil. Time elapsed, and I kept treading, Only to have thought, that someday I will lose every inch of it.   But today, despite the tiresome days and nights, A mere thought, a small talk, Even the tiniest prospect of the past, Passes a solidContinue reading “Fact or Fable”

Will she live?Continue reading “My Sister’s Keeper”

Know the blogger #4

When was the last time you changed your opinion or belief about something major? I was just like the people we hate, the judgmental. I stopped it when I realised how wrong I was.
