The Beach

"The Beach"starring Leonardo DiCaprio was released in the year 2000. It had an amazing soundtrack and I was captivated by the tracklist. The track by Moby and All saints were breathtakingly good.

I was mesmerized the first time I listened to the song 'Pure Shores by All Saints" . Coupled with the adventurous rush I experienced while watching the movie, I somehow was so impressed by the beautiful places that I resolved to live in such a place before I die. As usual my rational brain taunted me; 'how would I do that?' I didn't care and I didn't pay heed to the doubts. I just KNEW that I would have that experience.

Almost a decade later and after a lot of twists and turns of fate...

Wish fulfilled

Year 2006/2007, I used to go on walk every evening. Usually, it was music that captured my attention as I strolled. So, listening to music was an escape from the mundane daily humdrum. It was one of the days when I felt particularly creative while listening to music and the effect it had on me. The songs had left me wondering what if .... what if you could have anything in life, what would you have ? How would it feel?

It is then I came up with an idea to test life , whether life actually gives you what you wish for. At that time it was only one wish. I imagined how cool would it be if I would get a gift from a girl from another country. The gift could be a memento or anyth...

This happened around year 2012-2013 in Goa away from my city of birth Delhi. Facing one of my many breakdowns in life by then , it was a unique one.

I had got what I wanted in life, a miracle come true that I was living in a place identical to my dream place . But it wasn't enough. Because I did not get "everything" I wanted. Exasperated at the pain and torture I felt from within, this was a revolting feeling towards God.

I thought of resigning from my job in Goa, torn,because I didn't want to go back to Delhi and felt like I had found my actual "home"in Goa as I like nature, clean air and space and Delhi was opposite of that. Just when I rise up from my chair and have my resignation letter...

Monday 3 pm, I hear a phone ringing on a table next to me in my office. I look at it and see a name flash ie "Vaibhav" . It's the same name as one of my friends and hence I remember it. I come back home and go to sleep. I have vivid multiple dreams but the only thing I remember or put an effort to recall was unmistakable pronouncement of a name in the last dream; Mrs Lamput.

I wake up at 3 am and wonder what a strange name,never heard of it before and I don't watch television, so let's Google it. I find out it's just a cartoon series and not any person.

But wait, the creator's name of the series is the same as the one that flashed on the phone the day before; "Vaibhav". This is just one o...

There was a time when I had matched with someone on tinder. We talked for a few times. She asked for my number and left hers as well. I saved the number and called her. It was never answered and always went to an answering machine. I wondered if this was just some creative way to stop talking to me. A few days later as technology is these days, I get her profile in suggestions on a social media platform, I ask her if it's "her" . She blocks me. Convinced that this is just idiotic and I won't compromise with my self respect, I vowed to never even think of her.

But a few weeks later , I get a call from city metro station.  Bewildered why they're calling me as I travel in a car or on bike  and...

Split to the core ,
All he could say was ; '' I can take no more'',
So sure, so sure ,
Of yourself, all of you, all.

The last words that echoed were .
I can take no more.

Split to the core

So what happened after all ?
Why are you still stuck
on these damned crossroads ?

It has been 5 years now,
And 12 years all in all
Since you began your struggle
Failing is not an option

No! Don't fall , don't fall !

How long will you be heading nowhere ?
All the answers are here,
Inside your own soul !

Just need to take a look in the mirror ,
Time passes everyday,
Questions cannot remain same .

Tick tock, tick tock,
Can't you hear ?
It's the clock .
This life can be a game,
Only if you'...

IMPOSSIBLE.. I THINK NOT.

In solitude, I listen to
Their voices without speech
I was looking for answers that were always within my reach.

Dani

Dani was a little girl
She didn't know what to do
She had a lot of things on
her mind

But about life
She didn't have a clue

She had a lot of talent
But how was it going to
Shine through?

Dani was a little girl
But she didn't know
What to do !

Today I pray

Today I pray
Hear me out
If you may

I have the courage to be me
The one I am meant to be
Or
The one I was born to create
May I have the wisdom to see through their games
And be loyal to a vision
Avoid sloth like plague

Today I pray
Hear me out if you please
Th e courage to preserve
My integrity
Against the onslaught of society

The mirror within me
Tells me what I have been
The games are there
For a reason
But my reasons
Are not worldly

Bail Out
---------------
Constantly comparing ,
obsessively reinstating
their lies! their lies! their lies!

Borrowed ideas, conformist actions.
Reiterating, bent on playing the fool.
Remember the times you use to fly?

Who told you all the ideas
you so sincerely abide by?
When did reality blur itself
and it became hard to
Separate Truth from lies.

(self saboteur ,that's all you've ever been)

Creating wars in your head,
Hiding from battles that you should
win instead.
Look inside
(just settle the voice down in your head )
It's nothing but hatred.

Now you see how you're trapped by your brain;
You're asking for a bail out,
All your life,
Wishing for one more bail out.

The Inner Voice
-------------------------------
Why are you so afraid?
I don’t understand
who are these demons?
Are they real?
Or, are these
just creations of your mind?

When you find yourself at crossroads
of life,
What do you do ?
Do you choose the path made ‘’ for you’’,
or you choose the one you want to.

If your soul screams out to you
and tells you,
you’ve have lost your way.
Don’t deny it

Just look inside your soul
and you’ll find that
you still have a choice
never let any fears strangle
your inner voice.

Why are you so afraid?
I don’t understand
who are these demons?
Are they real? Or
just creations of your head.

Through a Rag Picker's Eyes.
-----------------------------------
I laugh at these miserable bunch of fools,
who claim to be humans,
to me,
they are just a bunch of tools,

I look at their world ,
see what they are doing,
The fruits of progress,
they so lecherously desire to eat
blinds them ,
makes them forget what progress truly is !

In the name of progress, everyday
they dig each other's graves,
marching one step closer,
towards the apocalypse.

They forget what a real human being;
Akira Kurosawa once said,
without clean air water and spacious shed,
A man is as good as dead.

They look at me ,
call me names,
jeer at me,
But I'm not mad ,
rather, I feel sorry for them ...

Slaves

Slaves, freaking slaves -3
oh......slaves , freaking slaves -3
Damned...... slaves , freaky slaves -2
Will you open your eyes,
Will you open your minds,
When will you realize,
They ......hate your kind,

Slaves, freaking slaves -3
oh......slaves , freaking slaves -3
Damned...... slaves , freaking slaves -2

Do you think it's just a coincidence ,
And you don't even see it as a crime,
They've made you a toy
in this 9 to 5 life
They've bought you,
not just your time.

Slaves, freaking slaves -3
oh......slaves , freaking slaves -3
Damned...... slaves , freaking slaves -2
Sheep, sheep, sheep, sheep,
All your rulers are
freaking creeps, creeps, creeps.

Rain

Rain , rain go away
I need to go out and play.
Rain , rain came today,
Washed my fears
Down the drain

We worry all the time
In vain
Life is meant to be celebrated
Screw the pain.

Dear Kitty
-----------------

Dear kitty catty,
I saw a flock of birds today
They flapped their wings incessantly
But they couldn't get away !

Passing through the subway
I thought of us on the way
We want to fly like those birds
But have we been led astray ?

You live in your own world
And I like it that way
But I wonder if we would learn to
Walk firmly one day.

Birds are meant to fly
Sooner or later, they will.
But what are we going to do?
What is our fate?

Let's live in our own worlds
Let's find a middle way
To survive this human wreckage
we call world
And finally fly away together
one day .
Lots of love .

Resurrection ( The Phoenix Effect)
-----------------------------------------
As he kept on walking by and by
Forgot his aim
In this life
Stopped for a while
No familiar face to see for miles Disheartened he stopped the ride

Someone ask him
Why oh why?

This is the world
It will stay the same
Follow your heart ,
not ways of the world

There is no shame
Live in this moment
Because, now is forever

Don't waste this life
You're meant for something
Who cares what they think

Remember the goal
Don't stop right here.

rise up like a phoenix from the ashes

Enough is enough
No more internal clashes (of conscience)
No point closing your eyes
The soul sees everything

Hate bre...

Prometheus 2.O
-------------------
I asked for strength
You gave me wars
Until I just could take no more
You jumped so high
From up above

Fight back , you said
As I heard your words

Fight back, fight back
The spirit that makes Achilles
And gives the will to defeat goliaths of this world
Is built amidst the stormy seas .

Come on come on get up get up
You're my Prometheus
Don't fight against me
Fight against your demons - Dev Arbikshe

Paper Boats
[Dedicated to Hera]

Paper boats. I see paper boats.
As they warn me to not be a sheep
Be a goat
A goat i am not.

Holy Dane shows us the way
Sheep, if you cannot but help be
Know that I'm the lamb that slayed the lion

Fooled be not
Use thy judgement
From mud you come
To Ashes you're gone

But you remain
This all is a game
But a game it is not

Be
Be
Be

Breathe

That star is you
But it is you not
Madman or sane
The same but not

Don't count on their help
You are my last hope
You'll crossover
Worry not

I'm coming for you
Be not afraid of demons
You're the demon!

I do this for you
This world got better of you
Set them straight

Be untouchable electric

Stand ...

I LOVE GAZA

[Gargoyle series]

Thy will be done

Thy thy thy no my will be done

I am the odysseus

I won't play your games

I am the colossus

You'll never forget my name

Come to the battlefield

I'll be playing chess

You think you can pull the strings

I'll make your brain  a mess

So what ! If you're the ruler of the earth

I'm not Achilles,  Samson or  Prometheus

I'm the Odysseus

I've got the brains

And I've got the fire

You've got no chance

I'm not behemoth

You can't take me down

Take a look in the mirror

Oh , wait , is that a frown ?

And I still say

My , my , my , no thy will be done

It doesn't really matter because you and I are one !

Echo of the aftermath.
-----------------------------
Collecting all the dust that lay on the ground,
Once the Titans fell here
What was trampled beneath their feet
Is a place where they are laid to rest.
Hope flickered in my heart,
before reality tore it
And it fell apart.
Will they rise again from the ashes of their remains,
or are they searching for a place within our hearts to resurrect their dreams.
