Mind Chatter

There was a sense of urgency because time was running out, the opportunity was cruel and mean. The stolen moments were entwined on that branch of old wood which hung in that gorge of peccadillo. It hung in the ether as though she said ‘statue’ to her. And then the broken glasses flew in the […]

Bungee Jump

The sound of surrender was deafening with the fate perching on the top of that rocky mountain, watching that lone eagle, just released, on its unending expedition, mocking at the ego which takes a bungee jump and knows that the last point of return does not exist. In the untruth of the moment, a hollow […]

Pieces of me

There was a story that begins and ends, sensational in its own right which might seem so wrong to the unending melange of meaningless. Strided undeterred, sometimes in the mind, like a tale in the books unwritten, they flew like pieces of me hither-thither. And now i gather them sometimes from the beach in the […]

Dil Maange More..

We all forget or cease to think..and keep wanting more..Like ‘Dil Maange more’ is so right a campaign. We want endlessly for that one or two. For which we even roll in the mud and even do a cross country trek. It evidently shows how much we value the existing achievements, if it is there […]

She had been my neighbour some years back and i always remember her to be so very pleasant whenever she met me and can never forget how she once made my day by saying ‘you look so beautiful like […]

Unanswered

Cross-examining a misguess of a vast audience to have heard, understood loud and unclear and interpreted in the manner as I would have forced them to believe along the echoes of my ruminations but then I found that the thoughts innumerable are always allowed and each question need not be answered. Written on Thursday, December […]

For Amma & Achan

Early morning breeze created ripples on the silent estranged distributary of Ganges, Met me when I walked over the rocks on the shore covered by the shining dew drops, When I heard a bhajan from the distant temple over the mountain, I bowed down, chose to meditate and pray not to Gods this time, But […]

Khajuraho 2005

The air had so many tales to say, Some heard, some imagined, some interpreted. As much as one sees the life in its glory Child and the mother, a king and the warrior, a beast or the beauty The song of desires appears as though one turned page by page and unravelled those illustrations; sometimes […]
