WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING?

What tomorrow will bring?

Repeatedly asked about this?

Bluntly having no idea!

Often being ambiguous about our tomorrow,

But insuring it and barely living in the present!

MUMBAI

Mumbai.

The city of dreams,
The city of lights,
The city of togetherness,
The city of boundless spirits.

ENJOY THE MOMENT

And one day when tragedy brings you back to your old lane of memories,
You will be able to survive with a smile on your face.

And one day when the stars fall,
You will be strong enough to not wish upon them.

And one day when sunsets appear to be mesmerizing,
You will not rush to capture it.

Life consists of lot of such moments, beautiful to keep holding it,
Too beautiful to just letting them go off and enjoying the moment.

I STILL HOPE FOR MIRACLES

तू मैनु पूछ ना कोई सवाल
चल दूर किते मेरे नाल
के तेरा हो जाऊं

मैं किसी और का हूँ फिलहाल
के तेरा हो जाऊं

Somewhere I want her to know how it feels to miss your loved ones or maybe she knows it well. I want to go back to her, but I cannot. I had to move on knowing you won’t be returning. I wish we had time together.

Oh gosh!! It’s my marriage tomorrow and all I’m doing is thinking about you. I’ll be someone else’s tomorrow and forever.

Standing solitary on the terrace of my bungalow, with a beer bottle in my hand, admiring the sky, with meager hope in my eyes, chilled winds alleviating my face, I know it’s wrong to think of you at this moment. But with this song playing in my background and its entirely relatable lyrics has led me to our old lane of memories.

How I wish…
For once let’s just go to the place where we first met, singing, with no worries, with no questions, just craving for each other’s company.
For once let’s just sit close, watching the sun going down, with your hand wrapped around mine and those fluttering feelings.
You remind me how times can be good, you remind me how people can be loved.

सूखे से पत्ते हैं एक टहनी पे लगे
क़िस्मत तो देखो कि झड़ नहीं सकते
फ़िलहाल तो यूँ हैं कि कुछ कर नहीं सकते

I cannot undo anything. Neither you can. We have played our parts and left it upon fate. I know it’s the harsh reality. Somewhere in my heart I still hope for miracles. If not in this lifetime then maybe in the parallel universe.

EQUALITY OVER EVERYTHING ELSE

I’m still in a quandary wondering that is this the modern world we are living in! When will the society be free from the shackles of patriarchy, misogyny, sexism and feminism, is still a question!

ONE SIDED LOVE

One sided crush? One sided love?

Whatever! It’s just like a fine wine!

It’s the most powerful thing!

One sided love is never gonna work.

It’s just like the failing of Newton’s third law!

Or maybe you spend your whole life pretending it will work out one day!

You are not mine, but I have been loyal in this relationship.

Feeling the pain of losing someone who is not even yours!

It’s just like not hoping for a reply for the message sent.

I don’t know whether it’s making me or breaking me.

But baby! My love has no boundaries.

My one sided love, too, *is a fine wine*. It will always age with time.

Baby! You will be always loved and cared for.

I WAS AT FAULT

I know it affects me, 

But I was at fault. 

Those little things, 

I should have kept in mind.

WHEN THE DAWN BEDECKS THE SKY

When the dawn bedecks the sky, 

The gleaming rays appear like a glimpse into the universe. 

The golden sunshine dribbles through the window. 

The birds chirping and the flowers blossoming.
