Christmas the way it is

The fact that I know that Christmas won’t light up my door, Doesn’t seem to bother me no more. The truth that Santa won’t come down my chimney tonight,  Doesn’t make me wanna sit and cry. And when I see pics of heavy decorated Christmas trees,  My bedside plant seems such a breeze. So what…

the death of a tree

  No-one cries when a tree dies There’s no ritual No tradition  No dark days everything’s the same  Only it isn’t  The tree cries, screams from inside It begs to be pardoned And when the man with the axe finally draws his last swing The tree still refuses to surrender. As it lay on the ground…

A reality check in India

So, hey! As a younger kid I’ve always been told that to change the BIGGER system you have to start with the SMALLEST. and I’ve always been debating about equal rights for everyone , about changing the world , but what’s happening in my own country these days just feels like something I cant seem…

When you’re too confused to cry

letter to my 10 yr old sister

There were times when I just couldn’t breathe    and times when I asked myself why I was breathing at all. None of that made sense then but does now.                We have to live to enjoy life,  not breathe to survive. we have to laugh our hearts out…

A secret to be told

We’ve all heard of myths and legends about gods who could fly, death ones who could be bought back to life and ones who live forever life. These tales are considered impossible these days, many have given up on the idea itself that there was such a thing once. The ones who believe , do…

your wake-up call

Did you ever just look at the early morning sun rays and realise its a spotlight for you to stage another day? Made those scrambled eggs and just felt that eager, happy hunger for breakfast though it’s the same you eat everyday Even without your coffee you seem to carry all the breezing winds with…

You may not express concern for everyone but you UNDERSTAND their concern. In fact, to add up to…

another day, another feeling

Everyday we tend to sleep or wake up with some feelings, when we’re excited or nervous we notice it but on ordinary days we don’t really care about what tomorrow holds. There are times when I sleep thinking of tomorrow as a disastrous day  or a boring one. To make my point obvious, its not…

when you get to the hymns of the hour

1st July 2017, Seville These days that I’ve described are what you would call the bustling and exciting life of a tourist. But the real, actual calming experience to gather the real essence of a country, is to be part of one a.k.a be one to the nation not OF the nation. Ok, in simple…
