While the night painted into deeper and deeper shades of blue, her longing eyes were still looking for some belonging in the audacious blankness of the vast sky. Sitting under the labyrinth of those branches, in the company of the tree, that had grown along with her over the years, she had been expecting some magic to happen that night. She had heard in her childhood that the people who … Continue reading Longing for Belonging…
With warnings studded like gems in gravel, A few roads are haunted hell to travel; Deceptive destinations don’t have a measured distance, And walking with principles is a foolish persistence! Your close ones will snatch your optimism, Will criticise, seeking rainbow in the prism; Shunning the principles that govern the result, Will demotivate adding spicy spoiled insult! Night after night, I am sleepless and thoughtful, … Continue reading Notices at Night…
“Mirror, mirror on the wall, show me grim realities of them all?” Asked a twenty year old, in anticipation of a traditional reply. However the mirror had much more to convey, with total internal reflection bringing enlightenment.

Well, it might sound strange that food feeds them for dispute. Be it the burgers at … Continue reading Why Did You Finish Eating After Me?
Once upon a time in history it was never said, that if something loses it’s existence or changes it’s appearance, it never had any valuable experiences. Every fallen, dead leaf, once danced enthusiastically on a windy day, Every drenched, wrecked ship, once sailed high spirited on bay! Everything that attains an end, definitely had a beginning. Birth and death are two universal truths, and the journey between … Continue reading Happily Ever After?
“What is at the centre of the Earth?” A seventh grade school teacher, with a beaming face questioned the class. “The core, comprising of hot molten iron is at the centre of the earth.” An affirmative tone answered.

A sedentary last bencher, engulfed by the reply pondered if he … Continue reading Left Right At The Centre
One of my favourite pastimes is allocating absolute assiduity, losing lustre in contemporary world. As I passed by the busy artisan, I was intrigued by the viability of the fading printing art. I settled down on the brick seating, not meant to sit safely. “What is that liquid in the tray, sir?” I was fascinated to know more about it. “Is it water or acid?” … Continue reading Adult Adulteration
There are instances when troubles drop in multitude, but there are people backing you up, without your knowledge. The mountains by the side of river, support it wholeheartedly throughout the journey, protecting it from storms and preserving its beauty. However, the river cuts the mountains, while making its way forward. How unjustified? But wait, how often do we accommodate that truth behind what we see? What happens to the unconditional … Continue reading Solemn Speech In Solitude
