An Extravagant Gift

  You are a go-getter in your career, Gladly on the crest of a wave, Is that why you had to disappear, On my birthday where I wished to rave? Work was what kept you away, But I patiently decided to wait, With no presence of you in the doorway, I simply stared at your…

Ironies

We oft-times ask this question, And end up with the usual assertion. Why is it me always facing this irony? Yet after facing it, why this agony? We blame the circumstances and create a fuss, While actually, we are the ones responsible for the mess. Whenever we see something so astounding, For a split second,…

Rainbow

When I listen to that old song, With tears, when my eyes go low, I will be missing you, On the other side of the rainbow. When I smell the first rains, When the first drop touches my brow, I will miss the memories we made, Standing on the other side of the rainbow. When…

Rainbow

When I listen to that old song, With tears, when my eyes go low, I will be missing you, On the other side of the rainbow. When I smell the first rains, When the first drop touches my brow, I will miss the memories we made, Standing on the other side of the rainbow. When…

Beauty And The Beast

Tale as old as time, Song as old as rhyme. A beauty fell in love with a beast, The one isolated in a castle, somewhere far east. A story that I adore so much, It can cause storms under my skin, with just a touch. I love it because I too am in love with…

Heavenward Himalayas

The gigantic mountain ranges, Even the audacious climber is fearful, Valleys with delightful views, These are the Himalayas for you. Valleys are superfluously blessed by the Lord, Monks meditating in the infrangible serenity, The Divine resides in every part of it, Truly it’s a “Dev Bhoomi”. Blissful glaciers mollifying everyone’s heart, Solang valley with breathtaking…

It was always me

I miss me, the me I had when I was with you. I miss my smile, how pretty it was around you. I miss my happiness, that you gave me once. I miss how selfless I was around you. I miss the strength I had when you were always there, behind, holding me. I miss…

Mumbai On A Standstill

On the 29th of August, 2017, on a normal Tuesday, Mumbai was tested by nature, yet again. More than 300 mm of rainfall was recorded on that day. There were tired eyes everywhere, in search of hope, home, and hospitality, while vehicles were abandoned on the streets. What surprised me, yet made me happy, was…

Lily Evans

Dear Lily Evans, Forgive me, you’ll have to listen to a boring muggle like me. But for all I have heard and known about you, you are the supermom they all talk about. You had been through it all. Right from being hated by your own sister for being a witch, to being unconditionally loved…

The Color Red

I wish I could see you in red today, Cause white is a monotonous color to wear on a marriage day, Especially when you’re not Catholic! I wish your fiancé was not covered in red today, Cause blood looks good only while donating, And not while tying the marriage string! I wish you didn’t ignore…

The Ring

The Ring. So do you know the hype behind it? That ain’t just a round stuff studded with stones or dyed in silver, there’s more to it, something deep, so deep that it hardly strikes the minds of us, the Normies. “If I had to choose between his ring and my books, how good should…

Blank Space

The question echoed in my mind. All that would come back in was blank space. Emptiness. My eyes opened, and it was blindingly white all around. I squinted my eyes to get used to the brightness. I heaved in a lot of air and breathed like I’d never breathed before. The picture in front of…
