in honour of mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are oblivious of family planning

they flourish in billions

inspite of All Out & Kachuachap

they invade my territory,My Room

In attempts to crush them

I end up slapping myself

The walls of my room

display some of my victories on them

They nurture themselves on my blood

leaving love bites all over my face

Forcibly listening to their irritating buzz at night

I miserably fail at my mission

to get a Good Night sleep.... :(

P.S - This is being created in a state of zombiness coz of being deprived of some good sound sleep.

Pondering over thoughts
And yet being thoughtless

Living & outliving lies
And contemplating truth

Shaking suppressions
And questioning the alter ego

Overcoming guilts
And discovering self

Living many lives in one
And labouring dreams

The movement
from darkness to light
and light to darkness
define life.

11.45 a.m, traffic signal

P is travelling in an auto, requesting the autowallah to speed up to reach in time for a meeting. the auto stops at a traffic signal. a white merc screechingly halts on the left just a little ahead of the auto. the proximity between the two vehicles was close enough to let P read the time on the music player in the car. 11.45 a.m. the occupants are a young boy and a girl..both around 19 yrs of age. P's eyes are at the signal waiting for it to go green. there's something unusual on her left.she turns to see that the couple in the car are tied in a lip lock...trying to ignore P turns around. the autowalla is stiil staring at the couple. the driver of a bus and its passengers standing on the other side of the car are enjoying the scene and passing lewd comments. the couple stops, takes a breather, looks around to see the number of people mocking at them and continue to let go of themselves and into each other's arms.... by this time the auto wallah has already stepped out. the traffic signal is flashing green. P asks him to get in and move but he isn't bothered... the bus driver and his associates also get down & have surrounded the car to get a clear view of the action happening inside the car...P too can clearly see it...the intimacy of the couple has reached beyond the PDA...P shouts at the auto wallah but her voice doesn't reach him coz of the chaos and honking of the traffic behind...P starts to get out of the auto and bang on the car but stops considering the lewd comments being passed and some could be targeted at her...
it must be around 30 seconds since the signal turned green but everyone has lost the hurry to move ahead.... enjoying the show put up by two youngsters who have lost themselves to their uncontrolable sexual urges.
then suddenly a defence officer comes from behind to probably sought out the chaos but his eyes are left wide open as he peeps in the car....regaining his composure he bangs on the door.the guy turns around and is frightened out of his wits. he frantically pulls the gear and speeds off...
and so do others....


within the grey vista of life

happy yet sad

fearing behind smiles

pleasant yet scared

vindicating himself at every criticism

with the wisdom of experience

speaking through his actions

supressing the whirlpool of emotions

hoping for a miracle

to swap his vicissitude

with a plethora of colours.

Sunder mundriye ho!

Tera kaun vicaharaa ho!

Dullah bhatti walla ho!

Dullhe di dhee vyayae ho!

Ser shakkar payee ho!

Kudi da laal pathaka ho!

Kudi da saalu paatta ho!

Salu kaun samete!

Chache choori kutti!

zamidara lutti!

Zamindaar sudhaye!

bade bhole aaye!

Ek bhola reh gaya!

Sipahee pakad ke lai gaya!

Sipahee ne mari eet!

Sanoo de de lohri te teri jeeve jodi!

Paheenve ro te phannve pit!

from one life to another

we looked into each others eyes
mine were sad
his had tears.

tears of remembrance.
remembrance of
those first walks with his soft hand gripped in a protective hand..
those first jumps..
first and forever chats..
his scoldings ..
walks to school holding his hands...
man to man talks..
and then one day..
the protective hand was left alone
coz the other moved ahead in life.

remembrance of
those walks when his shivering hand held the firm hand
scoldings given to him to have his medicines
sitting by him through the night
and praying for his well being
hoping that medicines work
sitting by him in the hospital for weeks
man to man talks
and then one day he left
to move ahead in the life cycle.

his eyes were rather painful
they were talking which is unusual
unable to conceal the grief
expressing the loss of his father.

the big fat weddings...

somehow i don't like the funda of the big fat weddings..i think it is a ridiculous business for in it nobody enjoys..the family is tensed coz of the preparations and hoping and praying that everything goes well, that no relative is annoyed and all the formalities are completed and everyone goes back home pleased. the bride n the groom are sitting like idols and dnt have a clue of whats happening and desperately waiting for it to be over, the video camera can go off, the relatives can go off and they can get back into some comfortable clothings and some alone time!

the people invited come due to variuos reasons. they are the only ones who feel a little relaxed after justling through office n traffic to attend the wedding. besides this, it is a sheer waste of money. i see no point spending lakhs on decorations n food n clothes u won't wear a second time in ur life.....
i may be sounding too complaining abt all this wedding business. my mom says if we don't celebrate such occasions then what will we as a society celebrate...there will be no celebrations if everyone thinks like me!! but i don't see the point why the whole world needs to be invited to your wedding n half of the people u dnt even know or are so long lost that u fail to recognise them! if u really want a celebration u can always do it with your close family n friends who matter to u....ahh...wish someone could convince me about this shadi business...

me n some of my friends have always felt this its time my peers have started getting married.i too might have this day coming soon for me.... now they have been against this big fat wedding n dowry stuff. but to my surprise they are following the same with huge grand celebrations n lotsa!! and they did not give much resentment saying they don't want to go against their parents coz they in turn are answerable to the society, no guy would like to go in for a court marriage and there's a difference between dreams and reality....

now m i too strong headed to not understand this society issue or m i thinking in an unrealistic world??i guess my mom n dad are going to have a tough time with me...

somebody please explain this to me......
