    October 27, 2019 by

    A Happy painting hung from a rusty nail I stared deeply at it and let my thoughts sail The woman seemed happy and at trance Or so it seemed at a glanceHer eyes were deep and sad Her lips were wry with a melancholy The air was dense and grim her hair was tied and… Read more

  • Rain through my window

    October 25, 2019 by

    Against this backdrop of darkness and lightIs life really black and white Raindrops glide gently across my window paneLike tiny specks of mirrorsReflecting every action of the doerThe rhythmic music of the trainPierces through the tranquil nightLike a lullaby to the passengers alightMoonlight pours in a Milky streamAll the droplets do are absorb it and… Read more

    October 24, 2019 by

    What’s the price of a mother’s love The scorching sun shone upon the foot path Barbecued the innocent souls in its wrath A young mother scrunched up her eyes To catch her share of 40winks The hard concrete was a guise Of a bed of roses that was a mere hoodwink The rays torrefied her… Read more

  • Metro diary

    October 21, 2019 by

    The life in the metro has always been a starry night to my wandering old school soul. The traffic, the fast lifestyle, the fact that people have so little time for human connections baffled me. I was wondering how I would fit into this puzzle of chaos. I was amazed at the nonchalance to almost… Read more

  • The Beggar

    October 20, 2019 by

    It was a windy day. The sun scorched down on the dusty streets, all the parched earth asked for was a spot of rain. It didn’t seem to matter to a lot of people. Their lives were woven into work. Monday mornings meant that time spiralled down like a lead ball on a helical runway… Read more

    October 19, 2019 by

    I opened a new cafe in 12th avenue. It was my dream. The whole air hung heavy with the aroma of incense sticks and potpourri.Balloons and streamers adorned the doorways. It was well lit. It looked enticing. Brand new furniture, spotless floor and gleaming chandeliers.The aroma of freshly baked bread wafted through the kitchen.People had already… Read more

  • Ocean in a bowl

    October 19, 2019 by

    I have always pondered over aquariums. The transparent surface, the glossy exterior and the clear waters.The bottom is covered with a layer of golden sand and variegated pebbles.Often tiny weeds are planted on the sand and they float around precariously in the pristine water.It is as if there is no layer between the eye and… Read more

  • Earthern Vase

    October 13, 2019 by

  • Flood

    October 12, 2019 by

The beach is where I’ve had many a wonderful conversation, shared a few laughs and soaked… Read more

  • Silence

    September 29, 2019 by

    Every morning on my balcony i stand with a cup of steaming coffee to breathe in some fresh air. All I hear is the sound of my tense breathing coupled with the pin drop deathly silence.

    Pivoted about a fragile axis, the pinwheel stands still on a sunny afternoon. A friendly nudge from the wind provokes it’s placidity and thereby begins the circle.
