दिल में अजब सी एक बेकरारी जगी, बीते दिनों की यादें हमें सताने लगी... न जाने क्यों और कैसे, लेकिन  अचानक यादों की झोली खुल गयी; रंग-बिरंगी यादों की मोती जब झूम झूम के बाहर निकल आई; तो कुछ खुशियों की लहरें लायी, और कुछ लाये ग़मों की परछाई। बचपन के दिन जब याद आये तो मन ही मन में हम मुस्कुराए!  गरजते बादल के आहट से काँपे  तो कभी बरसते पानी में भीगे... प्यार और मिलन के यादों ने हमें बेहद हँसाए, तो वियोग  और नफरत के यादों  ने पल  भर में ही दिल को तोड़ दिए!!! यादें मीठी भी हैं और कड़वी भी, हंसाते हैं यह हमें, कभी रुलाते भी; यादों के बिना जी पाना लेकिन  क्या सीखा हैं किसी ने कभी???

My Garden

The garden of my soul arid, Cool showers of rain it longed; The flowers all withered and dry Forever thirsty and hungry... Once, I watered it with love, Found the flowers aglow... The desert turned fertile; Its struggles all futile... The leaves whispered to me - Thousand tales of amuse; The flowers smiled at me As alive they became... Life needs nothing, but love, To burgeon in its grove... Loving droplets of water Is all it needs to prosper!!!

Who are you???

Every day I see you, Delicate and demure Jet black curly hair, Intense, gleaming eyes Dusky, skinny beautiful... In my mind's eye, I behold you - a child; Despite the decades That parted us - when I lost you in life's strife... Wondering what life Would've made us, Had we been together - Would our kinship have Grown; or withered away??? I carried you in my heart, Over the decennials of my life... As I grew older and fatter, You remained same - thinner And younger, yet; always with me... Why is it hard to let you go, I know not; everywhere I go I take you with me... Often I wonder who you are, My friend or my own little self???

Lost Friendship...

You came to me in my dreams Took me to the wonderlands- When we walked hand in hand Where not a worry we had... I laughed a little more; Cry, I did  no more! The pearls of joy shone, Fears of mine all gone!!! I happily sat and smiled, Unreasonably was I delighted; Uncluttered the mind was, Unbridled the soul was... Blissfully I opened my eyes; Abashing the darkness was... I mourned the friendship lost, Amidst life's crossroads vast!!!  The sense of loss abysmal, The yearn of the heart eternal; Anticipating your affable self, Hopefully I thrust forward myself...

A Round up of Events

As I was busy writing pages after pages after pages to meet the deadline of my assignment, many things happened (in some cases, didn't happen) around the world. I had noticed it all, but didn't give much thought to...  As an Indian, it was once again agonizing to see India surrendering meekly to the Australians. Match after match, Indians have displayed how to lose a match in no time and now it seems that the patience has run out... So, topping the list of things that didn't happen are: India's win in Australia and (sigh!!!) Tendulkar's 100th 100! (Now I think that the odds are high that I'll be hitting 100 posts on my blog before the 100th ton happens)   As India played Bayern Munich, fans hoped for a better show, but that didn't happen.  As Baichung Bhutia wore the Indian Colors for the last time, fans turned up in huge numbers to cheer him. Of the things that happened, I take great happiness that my fellow blogger and well-wisher, the &q

A Change...

I t seems to me that it was only yesterday that I was grumbling about the New Year being rather dull. Life took a drastic turn soon after that, and I am finding myself struggling to connect to Blogosphere. No, nothing untoward has happened. On the contrary, I was offered a job! Since I was fed up of channel / net surfing for hours, and wasting time by waiting for something really interesting to appear on my Facebook wall, I grabbed the opportunity with both hands. Since then, I have not had a dull moment.  Working from home has its merits - no fixed work timings, no rushing in the morning traffic, no boss breathing down one's neck....But the flexible schedule is also a headache at times, especially when work and other house-hold chores clash. But I am not complaining. I am confident of making suitable adjustments to my schedule that nothing that matters would suffer. The best part of this assignment is that it keeps me busy, and away from the idiot box. Of late, I

New Year!!!

This New Year has been rather dull... My new year resolution is that I will not take any new year resolutions - No, this is not a rip off from a Salman Khan movie... May be inspired by the many ridiculous dialogues, but not a copy... See how boring my days are; I have started competing with the dialogues of some stupid Bollywood movies!!! Let us not discuss that further as it will bore you to death. But the question is, why this dullness? I have tons of  chores to do that is lying unattended. Every time I see the heap of the clothes that has to be folded and kept away, it seems to grow inches taller and my heart sinks deeper....Sigh! The spiders that have made the corner of the ceilings their home seems to have a better new year than me. They appear to be partying all time.. And why not? As long as I am this dull and uninspired, they dont have to fear for the loss of their home or life.  And today, while wistfully staring at the monitor as I didn't know what to read or wr

लौट आओ!!

ज़िन्दगी के राहों में हमें अकेला छोड़ कहाँ बिछड गए तुम प्यारे? न कोई खबर , न ही हैं संदेसा कोई तुम ने भेजा हमें... ऐसे क्यों रूठ गए तुम हमसे की आवाज़ तक न दी एक बार??? हर दिन उम्मीदों के सहारे हम जीते हैं कि - आज तुम आवोगे;  हर आहट पर मन यह सोचते हैं कि- यह तुम हो जो आ गए! दिल को छूटी तसल्ली हम देतें हैं आज नहीं तो सही कल आवोगे! हमारे दिल कि तड़प सुन भी नहीं पाते इतने दूर क्यों तुम चले? हमारा प्यार तुम्हे खीच लावोगे फिर एक दिन हमारे पास बस यही एक उम्मीद पे तो सालों से हमारी दुनिया कायम हैं ... जहां भी गए हो, लौट आवो फिर से एक बार हमारे पास तेरे इंतज़ार में दिन रात एक करके बैठे हैं परिजन तुम्हारे फिर से हम साथ साथ होंगे, तो ही यह दुनिया चमकेंगे!!! PS: The report on the Missing of Soni M Bhattathiripad inspired me to pen these lines... I do hope that he comes back to his near and dear ones soon. It has been three years since he went missing.
