Hello 2012!

A retrospective look at an year gone by in a jiffy! And thoughts for the year to come.

It’s that wonderful feeling all over again. Time to start everything afresh. It’s new year time, of course. 2011 has been a year of downs and ups. Kind of bumpy, and I am sure looking forward to 2012.

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.

Search For My Mystic Land

An ode to a mystic land that lives in my memory. A place where I’ve never been to, nor ever will, but like any powerful idea it still dwells deep inside me as if I am a part of it from ages long ago!

My mind is lost
In the mystic land
The one I hear in yore
A legend that is now long gone!

Down The Rotten Hill Again

A self realization of the fact that, even for those at the top of the world, what is to be shall be.

I stood at the point where there was no fence.
It was a beautiful view of the sea beneath.
It was a scene worth the climb uphill.
But was my effort in vain?
For I have nowhere to go now
But down the rotten hill again!

Sky Diving

My first time tandem jumping experience.

Giving a rating of one to ten for the most craziest things I’ve done till date, this one is sure up there. But somehow I can’t help but feel as fresh as a person being given a second chance to live!

The Right Proportions

A life that grows and shrinks back with no care about how much and how little – I think in the end what we all seek is just the same…

When I was a toddler,
I was bothered by no troubles.
Then with age came a sense of fear,
All I wanted was the shelter of my parents.

Escape From Reality

Stop, think and proceed no matter how wrong you are going! The pause would, perhaps, suggest faultless excuses and produce perfect pretenses to the deceptive mind, and maybe hide the true intentions behind this journey!

In all effectiveness fear fuels hatred, lust beckons anguish, greed sows the seed of misery and jealousy douses the flame of love. If only we know what we do to ourselves through words said and unsaid, through actions done and withheld, then, perhaps there is more chance to free ourselves from unwonted ends, escape from unexpected twists of fate and maybe even find a better salvation to our otherwise miserable souls!

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!
