*Wind $ Fire*


Image Source: www.butterfunk.com





















What pulled me into you,
I have no clue;
The truth in your eyes,
A feeling that
you are incapable of lies;
I need no assurances about you,
You are the one
To keep me away from blues;

I saw a spark rising,
It’s now the fire
Burning in your heart;
I felt a chill of the breeze,
It’s now the wind
Blowing in my heart;
No, it’s not a game,
It’s an addiction
Of fire for the wind
And wind for the fire;

The look in my eyes
is of a profound desire,
To lock your soul into mine,
And together rise higher;
The voice in my head
talks out loud and asks thine,
Is it his heart which is supposed
to forever reverberate with mine;
No, it’s not a game,
It’s an addiction
Of fire for the wind
And wind for the fire;

Defeating the distances,
It’s your embrace that I want to feel,
Defeating the inhibitions and hesitations,
It’s in the altar of love where I want to kneel;
No, it’s not a game,
It’s an addiction
Of fire for the wind
And wind for the fire;

The child in me is getting fond of you,
Feeling attached,
it does’nt want to let you go,
Keeping you forever with me,
your feet under my toe;
No, it’s not a game,
It’s an addiction
Of fire for the wind
And wind for the fire;

You make me feel safe and secure,
Confident in my own skin even as I demure;
You do not judge me,
Not for the virtues, not for the vices,
With you I feel
I am free
of the reserves and of the biases;
No, it’s not a game,
It’s an addiction
Of fire for the wind
And wind for the fire;

You make me feel I belong,
With you I feel so strong;
I want you to come and say
that I am wrong,
that you are not just a fiction of my mind,
but a reality, one of its own kind;
that you are not just
a part of my utopian world,
but a fragment of imagination turned real,

looking for me in the herd…

*...Infinite...*


Image Source: www.thoughtpursuits.com


I am free…
I am infinite…
I am the ocean
Of thoughts,
My feelings and emotions,
The never ending water of the sea;
My soul,
The horizon where the sky meets the sea…


I am free…
I am infinite…
I am the ocean,
My touch can give tingles on your bare skin,
Beware!
Not always will it be soft on you,
I could peel the layers of your skin,
And break your bones,
With the thrashing force of my touch;


I am free…
I am infinite…
I am the ocean,
I am gentle and welcoming,
My waves are mild and flirty,
They love playing with your feet,
Beware!
Not always it’s the mildness I pour on you,
I could take the ground off your feet,
If I chose to be furious,
I can act before you can think;


I am free…
I am infinite…
I am the ocean,
I am a friend of the calm,
And a lover of the silence,
Beware!
I haven’t lost my voice yet,
The thunders and roars of the rising waves,
Could thrash you,
Make you deaf in less than a moment;


I am free…
I am infinite…
I am the ocean
Of thoughts,
My feelings and emotions,
The never ending water of the sea,
My soul,
The horizon where the sky meets the sea…


I am free…
I am infinite…
I am a woman…
I am a conformist and I am a rebellion,
I am bold and I am beautiful,
I am meticulous and I am sincere,
I am quiet and I am loud,
I am a woman…
I am free…
I am infinite…
I am the ocean
Of thoughts,
My feelings and emotions,
The never ending water of the sea,
My soul,

The horizon where the sky meets the sea…

* The In...complete*

Zindagi mein sabko mukamal jahan nahin milta,
Kisi ko zamin to kisi ko asman nahin milta.....
@@@@@

He came by,
And touched my soul,
He made me smile and laugh,
With him I felt whole;

I wished him morning,
And he kissed my hand,
We roamed about in the beaches,
And played with the sand;

We made houses of cards,
And the dunes of sand,
We had a colorful world,
And we lived in a dream land;

We listened to each other’s silence,
We Smiled and laughed together,
We giggled for no reasons, always in love,
Irrespective of the weather,

Not my body but my heart he touched,
Staring into his eyes I forgot the days rush,
Inside his heart was my little world,
Where I lived without a blush;

He kissed my nose,
And I kissed his forehead,
He proposed me with a rose,
And I became all red.

@@@@@
Some stories however are never meant to be complete,
Together we were, Together we are, together we will be,
Only that I can’t stare into his eyes, no more can feel his body’s heat,
He’s in my memories forever and in the air I breathe…
@@@@@

He’s mine and I am his….
Our story remained incomplete….
But it’s for each other that our hearts will always beat….

*Save Nature, Save Earth!*

The World is facing its biggest challenge of pollution today. I won’t go into the technicalities of pollution and pollutants. Anyways, do we all not know already? The trouble is that we do not probably care enough. We only care about our own comforts and convenience.

Global warming is raising the temperatures; so to get a respite from the heat, we want more and more AC’s and these AC’s would then release more CFC’s and would further aggravate the Global warming.

The Buses and Public transport are not convenient; so more cars are required, everyone wants to own one and tada!! More carbon emission, more Pollution!!

We want to celebrate our festivals with the loud bursting sounds and lights of crackers and daang!! More pollution again!!

These luxuries and comforts do not burn a hole in our pocket alone, but they are burning a hole in our beloved nature too.

We as common people may not do some biggest of the big things to protect our environment and keep it clean and green; but we sure can do the smallest of the small things. After all its from the droplets a sea is composed of. Here are a few of the most basic things we all can and should contribute towards:-




# Always throw the trash in the bins. If you do not see one around, please hold your horses and wait till finding one.

# Save energy. Switch off lights and fans when you move out of room. Don’t keep your chargers on after your battery is full.

# Save water. Don’t keep the taps running while you are not using it. Use rain water harvesting systems. 
And here I would particularly like to mention about my recent visit to Indian Institute of Advanced Studies. The beautiful architecture, the serene and tranquil surroundings, the aura of the place, everything about it is just beautiful. But what needs a mention here is the water harvesting system that the thousands of years old building has. The rain water is captured into the pipes, which then goes from inside the building to the underground water tanks, which is then used for gardening and related purposes. I was amused to know that even thousands of years back people cared about harvesting. But today when the water shortage problem is being faced by our society, I wonder do we really care to use water judicially let alone harvesting. Let’s all try doing our bit by saving whatever small amount we can by putting it to judicial use.

# Avoid using cars and vehicles for the small distances which could be very well managed by walking. It would keep us healthier too.

# Let’s all try to celebrate festivals in a greener way. Let’s say no to crackers and contribute in saving our environment.

# Let’s all try to plant a tree atleast once a year, if not more. Let’s not cut the plants and trees unnecessarily. Let’s not pluck the flowers for own recreation.

# Let’s be more sensitive towards our rivers and oceans and stop treating them as garbage dumps. Let’s not just talk about the Ganga as our religious river, let’s rather treat it with that reverence too.

# Let’s all try to recycle and re-use the waste products whenever possible by means of art and craft, or by donating the used products for their re-use by the less privileged rather than throwing them away.

 I don’t say do something big to support the cause of green earth, rather I say do something small that is in your capacity. But be sure to do it; so that our future generations are not deprived of seeing the beauty of mother earth that we grew up seeing.

* smiles only! *

When you just feel appalled, shocked and very-very disappointed at the events that just shaped out of nowhere; when you feel you don’t know how to react anymore; when your tears have dried up; it’s the time to remind yourself that you should not be concerned about whatever is happening. When you can’t change the things; when you have no control over the events, just shrug off all the unnecessary burdens off your soul.

When you look around and feel that the world is ugly, just sit down, shut your brain and tell it that you have all the control over it. Tell your brain that you are the incharge, tell it that you refuse to see the Ugly, tell it that you choose to see only that which is pure and blissful; tell it that the people are not your business, tell it that you choose your own happiness and your own peace over a thousand other things that anyways are not in your control; tell it that your happiness is not only in your control, but it is your responsibility too.

Take a deep breath. Decide for yourself. Tell your brain that the people can’t hurt you anymore, that you choose to smile and laugh, may come whatever; that you don’t give a damn about the negative things around you, that nothing can budge you from the path of smiles, that you won’t give up your smile even on seeing the ugliest reality of this world. Whatever is ugly would stay, you can’t probably change that. But you won’t contribute to that ugliness by worrying and fretting over it. Tell your brain that you will only contribute smiles even in the ugliest circumstances.


Smile and laughter are the best medicine to everything. So keep smiling and spreading smiles.

*Sorry- A word or a feeling?*


Image Source: www.powerofpositivity.com












“Is a Sorry enough?”, she posed a question to herself.

“You say it every time. But I never hear it coming straight from your heart. You say it like a mere word with no feeling of sorry, regret or genuine concern.  You says it because you know my heart will eventually melt. You know I will give in. But how long?”

“Just because I care for you, does not mean that you have got the right to hurt me over and over again. I have tried umpteen times to make you understand. I do understand that sometimes things are not done intentionally. But if someone repeats those things again and again, I doubt if not intentional, it’s not even thoughtful.”

“No! I don’t have anything against you. You are forgiven even before your saying sorry. But forgiveness can’t fill up those gaps which are created afresh every time. It can’t bridge the distances which grow more and more every time.”

“I tried, tried to hear that feeling of sorry in your voice. But I could not, there was only a well practiced in genuine sorry that I could hear.”

“Perhaps it is true that you cannot always be at the giving end of understanding, sometimes you need to be at the receiving end too. Else it  just ends like this.”

“I forgive you and expect you to forgive me too for giving up on you.”

“I choose indifference over grudges; I choose forgiveness over hard feelings; I choose moving on over stagnation; I choose my own growth as well as yours.”

“Sometimes a sorry is not enough to keep going. Sometimes a sorry is not enough to rekindle the extinguishing flame of a relationship.”


Sometimes a sorry is just not enough!

*Walking on the edge!*



Image Source: www.gettyimages.com


She’s a girl walking on the edge,
She could tiptoe any moment,
Fall down into the rocky stretch;
But she’s not afraid,
She walks tall in the sun,
As well as shade;
She’s not afraid of the wind,
Swiping her away,
Like the falling leaves,
She just likes to sway;


They may keep shouting and howling,
To scare her,
And stop her strolling;
But she’s a girl walking on the edge;
She won’t be afraid,
Coz her foundation of faith
Is strongly laid;
She knows love,
And she knows faith,
Of these two things alone,
 She has been maketh;


She’s a girl walking on the edge,

She isn't a part of any race,
She enjoys walking on her own pace;
They may say it’s not safe,
That she may fall down,
But she knows she’s protected,
Wearing faith as her crown;
She’s a girl walking on the edge,
They look at her and wonder,
How could she be smiling and somber;


She’s a girl walking on the edge,

She knows love,
And she knows faith,
Of these two things alone,
 She has been maketh;



She’s a girl walking on the edge……
