MOVING FORWARD 

​Every day we are moving forward 

But are we??? 

Just pause for a second and think 

If we really are moving forward 

In a country were what type of clothes we wear decides our character. 

Where going out in the night makes you a victim of rape. 

In a country where we love to clad our bahus in sarees but it doesn’t matter if the blouse is backless or whatever… 

But when those same ladies see young girls wearing crop tops and backless tops. They don’t hesitate to call her a slut. 

Our society is full of double standards and hypocrites. 

It’s hard not to judge someone but it’s not impossible. 

Live and Let Live 

You wear your sassy blouse and let us wear our crop tops

LOVE NEVER DIES 

Some stories do not end 

Like ours 

People thought it was the end. 

Little did they know.

It was just the beginning 

Yes the end is the beginning. 

Our story is unlike any 

We will not make history but create a future 

A future where I am with you 

Yes we will have our future 

In the lap of  heaven 

Where God resides 

Because even god believes in true love. Some stories do not end 

Like ours 

People thought it was the end. 

Little did they know.

It was just the beginning 

Yes the end is the beginning. 

Our story is unlike any 

We will not make history but create a future 

A future where I am with you 

Yes we will have our future 

In the lap of  heaven 

Where God resides 

Because even god believes in true love. 

Secret Admirer 

I still remember the first day I saw you. Wearing that million dollar smile you entered my class. The beautiful eyes behind your nerdy glasses which could make a man swoon. No doubt they did 😉. 

 You were different from others not trying to fit in with the existing so called crowd. But you were determined to create your own world.  Full of life and questions. Oh your questions made me go mad. The miss curiosity. You were my favourite student all your college life. Today you are the most important person in my life. I may have been your teacher but today I am writing this as your secret admirer.

MICROTALE 

I don’t know if we can ever be together again. Even when i’am with you. I don’t feel we connect as we used to. I know we have chosen different paths and we have different aspirations in life. But sometimes it feels you are a misfit in my world and me in yours. I can’t live being constantly judged in the parameters set by your so called friends. In future when we come across as strangers. I want to you to learn, that yes I’am different than you, I have different expectations from life. I want you to know that everybody us different and you shouldn’t judge. 

Eternal memories… 

​I 

can see from my verandah.                          

   

Perching birds on the wires 

Those pearly strings falling through the leaves

Naughty five year old in the neighbourhood 

A bunch of boys on the bike. 

Trying to woo the neighbourhood girls. 

Who pass by giggling away. 

The sound of the hawkers selling lip smacking and spicy gol gappa

Chole kulche and sweet sin kulfi 

Those were the golden days of my childhood. 

The neighbours shouting on us for breaking the window pane.

Coming home all cover in mud 

Today I stand and look at the same road

What I see is something I don’t want to see. 

Filled with vehicles 

No place to play and have fun. 

No neighbors shouting  

For their are no naughty bunch of children playing cricket in the street .

Train of thoughts 

​It is really difficult at times to fathom the train of thoughts running through your mind.                     I, whenever face this situation, feel as if the brain needs compartments where I can settle my thoughts and then ponder over them. Meeting each one of them as new passenger in every compartment. Funny isn’t it…..           Thoughts make you powerful, they are the part of your personality and often help you make your identity in this world.. 

The So Called 3 am Friend 

​I was is his 3 am friend. He used to discuss all his problems with me. I gave him my shoulder to cry, did his homework. But  slowly I fell in love with him. I thought he felt the same. Years passed we were in college. One fine day he too me to a place. The place was decorated with roses of my favourite color and aroma of the candles was just…. For a moment I thought it was a dream I asked him it was a dream. I didn’t know my heart will shatter like this when he told me. If i liked the decorations he had made to propose the love of his life. But to my dismay it wasn’t me 

THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE 

​​Today as I sit in the church watching you get married. To a guy who deserves you and respects you. The guy of your dreams. The man with whom you have envisioned a life for and with. I know I could have been that guy today who would have been saying I Do. It hurts but you can’t really go and change things. You got to go with the flow. As you get this letter I would have gone far away from your life and sight. For I can’t see you with someone else. I still love you the way I did when I first saw you. I still remember all the moments we spent together. Your tender touch, your soft lips, the milky body. But unfortunately I have to pay for my sins. Please remember that you once had a best friend named Bryan. Don’t forget that I will always be there for you. No matter what. Keep smiling. Be happy. 

POWER IS WITH YOU 

​​Well I don’t know what I want in my life or what u want from my life. People think it’s crazy not to know what you want. Coz according to them you can’t proceed if you don’t have a plan. I have friends who have already thought where they wanna be 5 years from now. But to me all this seems illogical and dumb foolery. I really don’t understand the logic behind this whole planning thing. I think it’s really important to unplan somethings to actually succeed in them. I know you must be thinking that I’m a crazy teenager we  doesn’t know what life is how cruel the real world is. To me the world isn’t cruel, I guess it’s a matter of how you look at things. We categorize rejections, failures, mishaps as the cruelty of life but these are the reality of life . They just make you stronger and stronger to face the world noo to face yourself. Power is with you and always will be with you.
