Lost & Found

It struck me suddenly, out of nowhere.

I was sitting in a guest lecture, half-listening to the speaker, a celebrated lawyer, while my mind wandered about in idyllic loops of thoughts in a manner that is characteristic of a final year been-there done-that student. 1,604 more words

Monsoon season

I’m officially two thirds of my way through an Ashtanga yoga teaching course here in India. In a nut shell I’m feeling cleansed (no wine for nearly three weeks… a.k.a.miracle) my mind is clear from the daily meditation, the beach tan is coming along nicely, the food is unbelievable and I love the fact I’m avoiding the southern hemispheres harsh winter. 320 more words

My Poem - Raat Kaali he

रात काली हे पर इतनी भी नहीं की राह न दिखाई दे !
अभी कुछ चिराग़ों में रौशनी बाकी हे !!
शरीर थक कर गिर गया तो क्या !
मेरे होशलों में अभी जान बाकी हे !!

My Poem: Andhkaar he Andhkaar he

अँधकार हे, अँधकार हे चारों तरफ अँधकार हे!
बन सूरज की मैं किरण गिरूँ, ऐ ख़ुदा बता मैं क्या करूँ! अँधकार हे…
क्या हाल हे बेहाल हे, ये धरा बनी अँगार हे!
बन कर शीतल बौछार गिरूँ, ऐ ख़ुदा बता मैं क्या करूँ! अँधकार हे…
उड़ जायेगा, मिट जायेगा, ये बृक्ष नहीं टिक पायेगा!
दुराचार की आँधी में, मैं कैसे इसकी ढ़ाल बनूँ!
ऐ ख़ुदा बता मैं क्या करूँ, ऐ ख़ुदा बता मैं क्या करूँ!
अँधकार हे, अँधकार हे चारों तरफ अँधकार हे! अँधकार हे, अँधकार हे…
