Boys don’t cry

If you asked me at 15 for exchanging my life for that of a man, I would grab the chance with both my hands. For longest period of time, I felt being man was so much easier. But today, I feel sorry for men. What! Am I bonkers? You will rub the gender pay gap in my face, the unfair […]

Grief

Grief, they say comes in stages.Engulfing you through darkness of anger, denial, sadness in motions.Science explains how your brain goes haywire. Its clinical, you see. Grief, they say happens to those weak people.Not us. We simply carry on wearing the scarlett pink which covers our invisible bruises. Grief, they say should be over by now. It’s about time.Just like a […]

Escape to La La Land

She walks in beauty from the celestial screen to fill up your days and dreams.He enters the battlefield with ammunition, strategy and lurking mystery.Ofcouse! It’s galaxial crisis or a page from forgotten history. They enter the club flamboyantly to soak in to the night of spirits, trance and dance.They enter the boardroom confidently with presentations, reviews and target.Ofcourse! It’s for […]

The Big Fight

“I had enough of you, control freak!I would rather run wild into the trees.” “I have feelings you see.how will my dreams advance?All you do is eat, drink, party and dance.” “So, my excesses are too much.Lunatic! What about your drama?Your accusations make my stomach clutch.” “So, sorry, sometimes I do act silly,Obsess over things willy-nilly.”“That’s ok, sweetheart, you’re not alone,Even my interiors may hold elements unknown.” So finally, the mind and body gave in.To not understand each other was indeed frightening.They decided to rest their case. Acceptance was the key in this phase. Mindfully, I heard their plea,And I thought this was the best plan.For the mind, body, soul and me. 19 January 2020

His and Hers

His late nights and her early morningsHis algorithms and her prose,His wheat beers and her freshly brewed coffeeHis daredevillry and her gentle poise. Her curly crown and his sparse dome,Her varan bhat and his chole naan,His mince no words approach and her diplomatic charm,His facts and her fiction. Her black mole and his dimpled cheeksHis rock and roll and her classical soul. It took (her) warm summers and (him) cold dark winters.(His) Optimism and (her) discipline.To realise that Marriage was not about keeping (our) scores but (our) musical symphony.Taking turns to play a melodious harmony. 24 November 2019

An Autumn’s Turmoil

Treading on the dry rustling leaves,On the unknown, slippery path.Flaming skies, red gold trees,suffering from the changing season’s wrath.Eyes on the familiar distant land,Heart in the graves of my past.Fists clenched, chin up, in my woollen maroon band,Slowly, steadily on the unknown slippery path, until this turmoil lasts.Until this turmoil lasts. 22 November 2019
