Eat, Love, Pray and Listen

Recently, an insightful conversation sparked amongst my friends around ‘Privelege’. Although, it eventually, lost its steam, one thing we concurred that money solves only money problems. Though it is the biggest hurdle for many, it only brings you only material happiness.Whenever, we have a whine about silliest of things, we often joke here and say “My first world problems.”Years ago, […]

My first adventures

I often day dream of a desk by a scenic window with just hours of constructive writing. But instead, scatterbrains like me, indulge more in numerous diaries, journals and pocket books. I have an annoying habit of scribbling notes, doodling, scratching out and then forgetting all about it.Chances are you will find them in each of my rooms. I may […]

Grey wala Shade

When my old manager, expressed her love for grey, (the colour not the infamous protagonist) I didn’t know what to make of it. The rainbow has seven splendid colours. Great fashion statements can be made in black. But Grey?The semi-permanent colour of the sky in England. The colour of a dusty old rag which is picked up only by tips […]

ते काय म्हणाले

कुणी म्हणाले, हे ग्रंथ पवित्र आहेतकुणी म्हणाले, छे! खरे तर त्या शब्दांत ताकद आहे. कुणी ओरडले, हे तर साक्षात महात्मा.कुणी ओरडले, छे! उपवास करूनच सापडले परमात्मा. कुणी म्हणाले, ही भूमी आपली जननी.कुणी म्हणाले, छे! हो… खरे तर मातापित्यांच्या जावे शरणी. कुणी प्रचाराच्या बाजारात झुंजले का?कुणी भुकंपाच्या कोपात भाजले का? दहशताची ठेच कुणी ऐकली का?भुकेची तळमळ कुणी जाणली का? आणी मी…मी […]

Daydream

Remember the time you were eight, begging your mum to let you play in the hot summer sun? “At four o’clock”, she would say, putting her foot down firmly. You would accept My Lord’s orders rather unwilling and go about pottering around the house. Fling the classics book aside as you had enough of it.With a red crayon in hand, […]

Borders

The sense of territory is undoubtedly an animalistic instinct. The sense of ownership is even more powerful…my hands, my clothes, my family, my home, my tribe, my country. Mine, Mine, Mine.It’s always I the fool versus their behaviour, their haughtiness, their mischief.We create titles to the land, we write lenghthy wills and we draw territories. We refuse people any right […]

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
