Attachments

The metro sounded ding, announcing the arrival of next station. I had come across this station numerous time while travelling to and fro across the city. This time it brought a different emotion to it. Attachments are like that. Once attached.. every irrelevant thing becomes magnified. The sidewalk reminded me of the walks with never […]

Darkness

The world is lit around me. There are people laughing, talking and walking around. There is also the presence of a darkness it’s claws closing in on me. It seems very near, very inviting also. At times, I want to stop this constant fight with it and give in to it. It doesn’t seem as […]

The Fate of a Four Clover

Browsing through the old books, an old scrap book got my attention. Yellowing pages and worn out corners, were a testament to the numerous times it had been flipped through. Pressed between the pages lay a four clover leaf, its colour dried out turning it into a pale yellow leaf with a paper thin texture. […]

IMPRINTS

The sky turned dark. It was the time of the day when the sun was retiring for the day. The setting sun marked the last dusk of yet another year.  The sky dimmed and soon the night sky was dotted by tiny twinkling lights. The big dipper stood in one corner and the brightest of […]

A Silent Prayer

There was a strong wind today. A dairy lay open on the bench, it’s pages rustling in the wind. It looked old and rugged.. nothing beautiful to look at. It held words just that they weren’t just words.. they were emotions that had weaved their way on the pen. Hope, courage, happiness, excitement, anger, frustration, […]

A Miracle

‘Touchwood’ I would say in a bated breath before starting a race or a competition or anything that seemed  important in my childhood. ‘Look, there is that bird with a single white feather, it brings good luck’, my friend said.

राहें

कभी कभी राहें ले चलती है एक जाने अनजाने रास्ते पर सब कुछ देखा हुआ, पर फिर भी अंजाना  सा लगता है एक खोए से बच्चे की तरह, आंखे चारों ओर  ढूंढती है कही दिख जाए , वही पहले देखे हुए नज़ारे । आगे बढ़ते बढ़ते परछाईया लंबी होती गई, मानो कह रही हो कि  […]
