Ramè

at every corner of every street there are leftovers of sweet memories I reach out scoop some in my palms they slip from between my fingers stare at me long a quick walk down the lane left behind rolling happily in the sands of time soon winds of past blow them all away I run... Continue Reading →

उस रात की बात …

क्या बताएं तुम्हें उस रात की बात चौखट पे बैठे अतीत की चादर में लिपटे किस कदर हम ख्वाहिशों को तरसे ~~~ क्या बताएं तुम्हें उस रात की बात होठों को सीए खामोशियों की बाहों में सिमटे किस कदर हम अल्फ़ाज़ को तरसे ~~~ क्या बताएं तुम्हे उस रात की बात खुद से गुफ्तगू करते... Continue Reading →

Atop the World…

I walk up the steep winding path. At last, I reach the top. The wind rushes into my face with so much fervor as if it has been waiting to reveal all its secrets, held for ages. In the middle of summer, here's winter. The clouds hanging low, so low, that it is almost impossible... Continue Reading →

The Road Never Taken…

It's a Monday like no other Monday. I am traveling to work, on the same train, through the same route, but why does it all seem different? Are all these the same people who travel with me everyday? Or are these new faces? Why do I have like a hundred eyes following me wherever I... Continue Reading →

Not all’s lost…

A Figment of Imagination

It should have been a perfect day. Only it wasn't. It should have been a romantic night. Only it wasn't. After all, all couples fight, isn't it? What's the big deal? So what, if it's an anniversary or a birthday or any damn effing day? Why should it be any different? One can start a... Continue Reading →

वो भी क्या दिन थे …

वो भी क्या दिन थे जब लालच खिलौनों से ज़्यादा एक अठन्नी की होती थी जब उस एक अठन्नी से सारे बाजार की सैर मज़े से होती थी वो भी क्या दिन थे जब माँ से ज़्यादा पड़ोस की चाची के लड्डू अच्छे लगते थे जब पापा की डॉंट से बचाने दादाजी बहाने बना दिया... Continue Reading →

जिस दिन उसने …

तड़पती तरसती उन निगाहों ने मुस्कुराना छोड़ दिया जिस दिन उसने अपना घर, अपना देश अपना आँगन छोड़ दिया ठहरती फिसलती उन क़दमों ने खुशियां ढूँढना छोड़ दिया जिस दिन उसने अपना घर, अपना देश अपना आँगन छोड़ दिया रोती सिसकती उन आँखों ने सपने देखना छोड़ दिया जिस दिन उसने अपना घर, अपना देश... Continue Reading →

Until…

I drink from the pool of self-made abyss of the mortified bliss until I walk smeared in regrets of past leftovers of blasted makeovers until I roll in the sands of time of one many lifetimes of their forlorn rhymes until I follow the trails of sanguine morrows of deflated sorrows until I peel off...

Finally Better…

a thousand waves wrestled to caress my tired self paler grew the dark night as waves ebbed and etched across the seamless horizon distant and dreary the prideful moon watched on as a million tiny pieces of sands and shells cloaked my skin concealed my fears somewhere far away a light came up in the...
