Two is the trouble

Sometimes in life we are presented with choices, and we have to pick one, eventhough we want both things, we have no choice but to pick one. We can't be at two places at once, can we? Well unless we're on the edge of a country and the border is close-by, it is physically impossible … Continue reading Two is the trouble

The Forgotten Faith

Have you ever noticed, when people don't speak up their mind, others automatically take them to be not worthy of the set task in hand? Even if they are the best ones amongst the lot, just because they didn't stand by themselves, others perceived it to be otherwise?  Often we wait for people to come … Continue reading The Forgotten Faith

The Gold Shield

A million stars stood by in a meeting,  Wondering how do describe this vision, It was someone new with a hint of gold, So much they wanted to say,  but couldn't put into words, So they whispered to me, Wishes that were centuries old. The galaxy sings in chorus every year, I hope you can … Continue reading The Gold Shield

It's on one of these occasions of my sudden urge to clean that I found a box. It wasn't embellished or … Continue reading At pause!

Tick-tock!

Often we keep hoping for adventures to happen, for us to embark on a journey like no other, but we find ourselves in a pool of irony when we are presented the opportunity and we still choose to back off. We keep imagining, daydreaming about how it would feel to just take off for a … Continue reading Tick-tock!

Koshish

Kyu aakhir kathghare main laker khada kar deti hai yu zindagi, Gita pr haath rkhwa kar poochti reh gyi humse, Kya tumne koshish hi nhi ki? Ab kya bole hum, jab shabd nhi rhe jatane ko, Un lamho ki koi keemat hi na thi. Subah se pahele subah ka swagat kar dete hai hum, Aise … Continue reading Koshish
