The Perfect Vision

Dedicated to humanity

I stood in front of a little wooden box
Mellow at first touch,
And coarse by the next
Curious, I slid open its crest.

It had two pairs of glasses
One rimmed with a golden frame
The other all rotten and rust
I decided, that try them I must.

Pics from our trip to The Lake District of UK and a short visit to The Old Trafford in Manchester

Looks like there has been an eerie silence in my blog for the past few months. I feel it is time to bring in a bit of Easter cheer!

Eternal Spirit

The eternal soul is an unquenched thirst in our mind for perfection, a fire burning deep within each one of us, an unresolvable enigma whose purpose is beyond human understanding. Yet seek it is what we do, day in and day out.

You exist formless like the wind
You take no shape and yet
Complete the incomplete
Filling my void.

Breaking the Routine

2015 – An year of Breaking the Routine. Here is my usual lookback at the year that just seemed to have zipped past!

It was the beginning of an uncertain year. If there was any certainity in life, it was that our routine life was going to be shaken up. That we were to fly out of the nest of three years that we had gotten so very comfortable with.

Weathering a Storm

I am trying to summarize the course of events as they unfolded in my hometown during the last four days. Chennai is perhaps one of the first cities experiencing a serious repercussion of Global Warming. But I am hoping Chennaites derive a lot of positives out of this ordeal and the world media starts to read between the lines.

I am jittery as I write this. My hometown Chennai is in the news for all the bad reasons. For those of you who are living under a rock, this is one of Indian metropolitan cities. Wikipedia might be able to give more stats about the population and other stats.

The Fight Within

Who is tasked with running of the world?
Whose ideals should humanity follow?
What is society without tolerance?
What is a mind without a choice?

Perched on the lush green tree,
In the middle of the field,
It’s eyes scouted the scene
Waiting for the next prey to yield.

There was much clamour,
Boisterous loud noises,
When men in fine armour
Burnt faith in to ashes.

Spitting and spewing hatred
With every gasp of breath;
Love’s defence was truly shattered
Whilst they did fight to their death!

A Spark of Life

Events that in recent past have engulfed humanity to sadness. Scenes that seem to repeat themselves from a nightmare, that we long to forget. Have we forgotten that showing kindness and empathy only makes us stronger and not weak?

Several decades ago when we were waking ourselves from a nightmare that the world war was, all eyes turned East to salvage some pride. It needed a Gandhi for the world to come to the realization that what we really needed was a war without weapons, a fight without words.
