|Not the one to give too much thought to ... whatever it was!!😁|
Every time a soldier dies in action, Rupee 1/- should be deducted from the bank account of everyone.
It’s not about the money...
At least the common Indian would realise the STATISTICS and that the option of work from home is not available to all.
‘कोरोना’ क्या सिखाता है?
आज दुकानें बंद पड़ी हैं, सड़कें भी सुनसान हैं।
भरी दोपहरी, दिल्ली लन्दन सब लगता शमशान है।
विपदा भारी आन पड़ी है, और सबकी यह मेहमान है।
कोरोना ज़ात, धर्म न देश देखता; करता सबका मान है!
संकट की इस घड़ी ने छिड़का हम सब पर यह ज्ञान है।
धनि, निर्धन, काला और गोरा, आखिर सब इंसान हैं।
फिर कई वर्ष के बाद वही चक्र अब घुमा है।
संभावना के कटु सत्य ने फिर से हमको चूमा है।
दुनिया बदलना एक व्यक्ति के बस की कोई बात है?
यह उस 'पहले मानव' से पूछो, जिसको हुआ कोरोना हैं।
इसे किस्मत कहो या कर्म, ऐसा बार बार हो जाता है।
कई वर्षों में एक वर्ष फिर से ऐसा ही आता है।
वह प्लेग की महामारी हो या खुद मानव का विश्व युद्ध;
असली हीरो हम में से कौन, यह जग ज़ाहिर हो जाता है।
Corona - Kya Sikhlata Hai?
Aaj dukaanein band padi hain, Sadkein bhi sunnsaan hain.
Bhari Dopahari, Dilli London sab lagta shamshan hai.
Vipada bhari aan padi hai, Aur sabki yeh mehmaan hai.
Corona zaat, dharm na desh dekhta; karta sabka maan hai!
Sankat ki is ghadi ne chhidka hum sab par yeh gyaan hai,
Dhani, nirdhan, kala aur gora, aakhir sab insaan hain!
Fir kai varsh ke baad wahi chakra ab ghuma hai.
Sambhavna ke katu satya ne fir se humko chooma hai.
Duniya badlana ek vyakti ke bas ki koi baat hai?
yeh zara usse pucho, jisko sabse pehle hua corona hai!
ise kismat kaho ya karma, yeh baar baar ho jata hai.
Kai varshon mein ek varsh fir se aisa hi aataa hai!
Woh plague k...
The Drug That You Are
The softness of intimacy that I foresee ... Is numbing my senses beyond degree!
Those elegant curves and that luscious skin... To touch n feel it, ah! A dream akin.
How often do you make me addicted to this drug... When you melt into my aura, wrapping around close, like a shrug.
That silhouette you leave standing naked at the misty window... Is a memory that's seeped deep into my own shadow!
The moment your thoughts start to fog my mind... A sin sweet taste and a surreal scent start to linger, and none can ever find!
Our lives swim through the waters of time... Sometimes a mellow tonic, at others, a stifling dark grime!
How does one keep moving further amidst the thunder... Is a mystery that for ages, masters ponder.
May be the answer is all so simple and complex at ones... It might dodge the king n embrace the dunce!
Little joys, germinated through love n watered with care... Are the keys to the intricate emotional snare!
I am feeling the glee of fortune to be your personal Santa myself... Look outside the sun kissed window to find me riding to you with my elf!
😁Hail the amazing festive spirit of life on this amazing blue spec of dust suspended in the midst of nowhere!✨🖖🏻
Wake up to a wonderous day,
Whether skies be blue or a shade of grey.
Life's blessings are too great to measure
But what, for you, is the truest pleasure?
Happy times spent with your friends,
Days you never want to end.
Birthday, festivals, party fun,
And buying gifts for your loved ones.
Attaining goals that you have set,
Or playing games with your new pet.
Finding things you thought you'd lost,
Shopping therapy, forgetting the cost.
Pastimes that make your spirits lift,
Like ticking stuff off your bucket list.
Cuddling up with someone great,
And making love instead of hate.
Traveling to places never seen,
Even if it's in a dream.
Gazing up at the night sky,
A falling star may catch your...
Today I was sick 🤒 but I never knew that it would leave me so happy at the end!
It was a usual day ... I felt chills since morning and even my usual ‘abode of peace’ - the warm shower, felt a bit uncomfortable.
By the afternoon I was running a low fever and felt the fatigue set in ... I was restricted to my cozy bed and a relaxing instrumental music track floated around me like a fragrant, all-encompassing mist!
My eyes were closed and sailing on the smooth and pensive waters of the melody, I embarked on a most illustrious and soothing fantastical journeys I have ever been on!
I started walking on a clear early morning, on a white sand beach with crystal clear blue aquamarine splurged a...
Real Education Minimises Bigotry,
Read that again...
Let it sink...
Are we educated yet?
Storybooks lie strewn all around us, all the time...
The bored ticket checker, a dilapidated chair, the hasty mailman, a dent on a car,the exotic immigrant, the swing in the park, the patient school teacher, a lone lantern on a village road, the grumpy old neighbour, the limping dog and even the pesky lil kid on the sidewalk ...
Each having wrapped within them years worth of plots of worthy storylines-fresh, drab, hilarious, morose, monotonous, silent, limitless globes of frozen memories, stamped deep in space and time... some true, others-imaginary clouds of hazy delusions!
Look around, they walk amongst us... beautiful words, heartwarming feelings, loving yet derelict emoti...
Sometimes I intently gaze right into ‘nothing’, spread far beyond my visual range.
Sometimes I simply let my mind skim through moist, lukewarm, frictionless vacuum, with nothing to hold it back.
In those very moments, my breath is in such majestic rhythm and harmony... I turn into a living musical vessel!
All this magic rains when that empty, nondescript wall transforms into a salubrious wormhole launching my entire being onto a spiritually rehydrating and philosophically liberating voyage, far beyond the usual dimensions! Try it... just disconnect and fly.
Zindagi ka har lamha accha ya bura ho aisa laazmi nahi...
kuch lamhe sirf lamhe hote hain... Kore safed, Ruhaniyat mein lipte, Chain-o-aaram aur Sukoon se labrez, Quayanaat ki nawaazish- jiske liye kismat nahi, sirf khud ke haalaat mein Inaayaton ke Noor-o-Uns pehchaanane ki nazar bhar chahiye hoti hai.
Seher ki musalsal thandi taaseer aur sham ki aafareen roshani ka raqs, khushi aur gham ki sarhadon ke paar Mayyassar ehsaas hote hain.
Rising with the ashes of the past, crackle the ghosts of sins that never left my side...
I tried running fast, hid in the closet, got my fingerprints erased and my face distorted...
Thought I would rise shaking off the devil that I once was!
And then the truth came crashing down on me...
It seems that nirvana is a myth.
The sins linger on like your own stench that follows you everywhere... With eyes open or shut... With the heart beating or crushed!
Life goes on in little packets of happiness, fleeting pleasures, introspective calm, sadness & gloom, trepidation, fiery anger and repugnant hate!
The size of the packets is what matters... relax and take a deep breath, preferably latching on to a tranquil sunrise and pacifying morning breeze!
Start filling up the right packets, right now!
What stops me?
I know I mean a world to you.
I know how lovingly you gifted part of your soul, your heart and your spirit to me, the undeserving one.
I know it’s only you who will collect my broken pieces when I am done with my stupid misadventures.
I know that it’s you who has a plan and vision to fight every storm on the way and emerge victorious all the time!
And that at this turn of our lives, it’s me who is your shackle, your barrier, your tormentor.
I know it all ... but the reason what stops me to be the person you deserve ... is what remains a challenge that I don’t even consider facing...
May be it’s cowardly or may be it’s just meant to be!
May be I am all wrong or may be ...
Wake up or Self-destruct!
Sometimes you are as clear as a crystal in foreseeing a damned dark end to whatever you are up to ...
it’s just that the teasingly subtle momentary pleasure takes the better of your wisdom and you turn into a zombie walking till you somehow self-destruct!
May the odds be in your favour and you wake up just in time!
The sooner you know, the better.
What are we but a pestilent species of apes who learnt to imagine and blabber fantasies and myths!
It was all great fun until we brought ourselves to believe those myths as realities! Money, religion, social order, national pride, borders... keep counting!
What is it that I seek?
I smashed myself on the pavement of surreal philosophy ... I did read a lot and tried hard to rub the dust of wisdom all over my presumed facade! Alas... it didn’t give me what I seek... but not all went in vain... as I met with what I don’t seek! If Trial and error is what it would take... I may need to invent the elixir of life to actually improve my chances!
Waking up each day
Wrapped in a transcendent silky fluid of warmth, my eyes try hard to shut out the light.
The mind hangs between an eventful, vivid dream and the real world-full of plight.
Shall I let pains of mortality drown me or just tread the edge and enjoy the sight?
Can I let reality shake me up and smash me into my place in the world, insignificant and tight?
Or should I crouch deeper in my bed to ward off my weary fate with all my sleepy might?
I finally choose to force my eyes open and face the deep fall from my bed, with a vow to put up a significant fight!
