Silence is something when uttered loses its virtue in its literal sense but silence can be felt amidst any cacophony. Its a state of the mind, the conscious, where ones thoughts are in unison with the world around.


Life would be very easy if everything fell in its place, everything we wish came true, every unspoken desire is fulfilled. But its not this way. Life leaves us at crossroads, at a wrong turn sometimes. I feel it is for us not to take life for granted, to learn to keep it simple but strive hard to move forward with it.

Almost Heaven

Lost in the pandemonium in life

and surrounded by the thoughts

I find a jagged thought haunting me

reminding me the very purpose of my existence

is nothing but to find my ways out

of the so called grandeur life.

To find the simple truth, that we often

ignore among all the flashy colors around.

I deny the thoughts that creep in,

in search of the almost heaven.

To find the love my heart craves for,

to find someone waiting for me

after I fight my way back home

from the thorny clutches of the world.

Someone I could rely on,

with whom I can feel loved,

with whom I can make any place

the almost heaven I look for.

The place laden by the beautiful

thoughts of our minds, filled with

the love of our hearts. Almost heaven

the place where a new life could blossom,

caressed and nestled in the bosom of my love.

Almost heaven in the cacophonous world

is where my mind takes me.

Almost heaven, that is where I want to be.




Ease it up

Its all down
you gotta pull it up.
Life, its never easy
you gotta ease it up.
A hard rock song
you can’t sing it light.
A soothing melody
you can’t play it hard.
A bit of this and
a bit of that.
When its all down
you gotta pull it up
You gotta ease it up

Blurred emotion

I hid under the dining table
to avoid the crowd.
Eyed them from beneath,
I could see all genre of people.
A few had a satisfied look,
while most of them were blunt.
Hoping to be a part of something
for I don’t know what sake.
In a jiffy someone pulled me out.
And there I was standing midst
glimmering people who seemed
like ghosts to me. Some pulling my cheeks,
many asking the one question,
again and again.
As an obligation, my parents taught
I bend down and bowed to every
elderly folk to seek their blessing.
With blessings people wished me
a happy birthday and handed over gifts.
Shy I was then and disgusted 
by the sham and loads of questions.
Never wanted to be in the limelight
for any occasion.
As I think of then today,
I feel I wasn’t wrong.
Though I am not so shy anymore
but the sham on the faces
I still see today, the love
a few had is shadowed.
Time has brought many obligations
for all but I ask is it not worth
to light a moment of happiness
for one who still wishes for it.

Life – a short story

“Hello” answered she when I called. A silence of happiness lingered in the moment. Even time bid goodbye. “Hello” answered she again. The smile seemed to stretch on my face.  “Hello” answered she again. Harsh she was this time  but yet mellow. The first drop of my tears gained momentum and fell. Tears rolled down the small crater on my cheeks created by my smile. “Who is it” yelled she, now. With nothing to speak all that she could probably hear was my heart, beating, pumping in love for her. This moment where I was lost in the beauty of her face, imagining if she were here beside me. “Is it you” spoke she and the moment came alive. Time seemed to have come by, giving me another chance. Chance to be with her. I could hear her say my name and say “please come home…”, I could hear the pain in her cry she had gone through without me. For I left her alone in the world. Helpless I was, helpless I am for time took away something which belonged to her, from me. “I can never return” I said crying in pain. “I am sorry” I said and hung the phone. For she can live waiting for me, cursing me for I left her but can’t live if I die in her arms. Smiling with the ecstasy of listening to her I left the world with a hole in my heart which only belonged to her.

Her smile

Lit by the sullen light of the moon
hidden behind the gray clouds,
the air, had an eerie green glow.
Midst the flashy lights of a noisy winter street
without the wings of the fairy,
without the magical wand of the wizard,
she cast a spell, mystical in every sense.
The smile of a lifetime,
and its presence on her eyes.
Cocooning the feelings I had lived so far
awaiting to drift in wisps.
I was lost, drifted away.
Away from the lights and noise,
I saw us together and the sun
shining bright on us.
Her eyes said a million things,
none of which I could read.
Enchanted by her smile,
confused, trying to find the meanings
in her tacit smile.
I was drowned with her thought.
Blurred, saw her face glimmer.
I closed my eyes, to clear my sight,
but only to lose her.
I lost her before I could
open my heart and say
how much I loved her.
I couldn’t feel the pain though,
I was still numb, lost in her.
Back to the busy street
all I have is a memory, her smile.


With smile on your face

and the tears of happiness,

when you held me in your arms,

the joy you had must be divine.

With a power so divine,

you nurtured me to life,

you showed me a new world.

Holding my hand in every walk,

you understood me like no one else,

you made me what I am.

You love me like no one else does.

You don’t eat till I do,

you sleep when I do,

you pray for me all the time,

you love me like no one else does.

Oh! I am a fool to compare your love,

but that’s a truth for every one like you.

You are Mother, who is divine.

You are a life bearer,

whose love is unconditional.

You are the one we call with every breathe,

in every walk of life.

You love me like no one else does.

Old School Water Colour Style

My recently done Photoshop work. Hope you guys like it. Well about the colors I choose, there has been a little thought process, to make it look like a school work. And the dress that the lady is wearing, the color combo is still a debatable topic. 🙂 Just like it, if you like it.
