A Gentle Sob

As I complete another chapter in my life and shift on to a new place and new friends, I ponder over these games that fate plays in life and the ache one feels while parting with a stable lifestyle and some close friends! Hopefully all these are for something good ahead.

It was a beautiful journey
Down the green mountain valley.
Cheerful and gay
I looked forward to every day.

The noise of the engine
Never spoiled our chatter;
The sounds of others around
Was lost in our laughter.

India’s Gift to the World

While everyone sees an end to the career of a great cricketer, I feel the concept of Sachin is what we ought to be really bothered about and that will live forever.

While some strive to achieve glory despite all their human limitations, some are bestowed talent so immense that the world simply cannot help but take notice. Then there are those rare few who are endowed with prowess beyond wildest imagination and yet somehow manage to stretch the limits by sheer hard work, perseverance and above all humility. They are whom I’ll call divine!

One Last Wave

We cling on to everything we hold dear; addicted to our materials – even when knowing, within, that we are just a fleeting moment in the passage of time. Nature shows everyday how it all works; that everything is bound to pass away. Yet even when walking the last line of life it is the human nature to observe and yet not realize. We are left asking just a little bit more.

I stood by the shore,

Wide eyed – in rapt attention;

It was a scene straight from a dream

As I saw the water rise and fall.

The Cup that Matters

This is what a billion “mad” heads were thinking about over the past few weeks and we have it at last – we have the bragging rights now to call ourselves Champions of the World!

I read the score card wondering if the fool’s day had come in a bit late! It was probably my hallucination – after all I wanted it so selfishly for the past few weeks now. It never sank in really that the day has come to pass when we can call ourselves “world champions” at last!

A Special Swiss Trip

Swiss is a dream place for both me and my wife. It was rather unfortunate that we couldn’t make the trip a success during our last visit to this land. But things turned out to be even more lovely and lively when we visited the place again with our baby boy!

I’ve imagined this many a time, but thoughts are not close enough describe the feeling I’ve had over the past three days. We came to Swiss again at last! The turbulent personal situations we went through just about one year back only made the trip sweeter!

A Heart To Soar The Distance

Just crying my heart out.

Lost in trance, I move around
Hoping the shackles would be broken
By your true love!

Half here and half there
I exist as a mere shadow
In your dreams!

Yet you continue to play
As if nothing happened
Between us!

All that I can do is
To pray for you,
Sincerely, honestly, truthfully!

A Change In The Seasons

A post written in a desperate attempt to give some voice to those little emotions quivering deep in my heart. If only I had the winds for my wings…

I was taking a stroll from work back to home, one fine evening, when I noticed how much the season had changed. The fields which were white with knee deep snow a couple of weeks back were now dull green; the pathways which I got so much accustomed to seeing with muddy footprints of unknown travelers had lost its enigmatic self; the trees which were at death’s door were suddenly springing back to life as if by magic, the early flowers were a beautiful offering from the neighboring bare bushes; nature was countering herself in every possible way as if to prove a point!

A Baby Is Born

Written on the day my son was born. Unfortunately, I couldn’t be near when he came into the world, but in a way I am with him…

Out of all gloom
Came the bright lil’ one;
His smile gentle
Our bundle of joy!

An eerie silence broken,
By early winds of March;
His cries rang
An unsung melody ’twas!
