I would find you!



I would find you
In any version of reality,
In any life, in any circumstance,
I would find you!

In any situation, in any life
This life or that life,
In hundred lifetimes,
I would find you! 

Through those sleepless nights
and restless days,
beneath moonless skies,
with teary eyes,
I would find you!

In warm summer breeze
or the cold wintry night,
In music of rains,
or in the autumn dry
I would find you!

Through the silent nights
and the gazing minds,
Through the midnight talks,
and in between the lines,
I would find you!

You are the weakest thread
and my strongest hope,
for the tears i hold, 
and the joys you serve,

To have it all
and all in all
in the hundredth world 
yet another time
to come again...
for yet another life..
to be yours and to make you mine...
I would find you!

I would find you,
Till time has time.....

That last day!



I looked at you
You looked at me,
for the questions unasked,
and the answers unknown,
I wish we could say,
on that last day!

It made me cold
the look in your eyes,
which could be felt,
but could not be seen,
I wish we could make,
on that last day!

The scribbles on shirt
and the shiver of touch,
the smile on lips,
and the missing beats,
to continue it all,
I wish we could say,
on that last day!

There were people around
though silence within,
my day was alive,
but something died,
i wish i could collect,
what i left behind,
is that last day!


Through unspoken lines
there were thousand signs,
wish we could see,
and made them realize,
I wish i could stay,
on that last day!


Though the time has passed
and we can count the years,
i wish we could meet,
before the final goodbye,
I don't want to die,
before that last day!


                                       

Through the mind of a rain lover!


It was about to rain, combination of grey black clouds and cool breeze was adding to the mood of weekend. I closed my eyes to feel the bliss, nature has bestowed on us. 

The face to feel the coolness of breeze, the wetness of raindrops, to experience the magic of silence admist the thunder and to see the beautiful colors beneath the grey sky. The peace is magical, the joy unknown. 

A rain lover..we find meaning of life in rain. To an extent of relating it to the peace of mind and happiness. Loving the sound of rain drops falling on leaves, the sound of rain on water, the thunder comes naturally to us. 

A walk alone in the rain take us near to the god, its gloomy and bright at the same time. Nature talks to you, comes close to you,to ask for the wish you ever wanted to, to cleanse your wandering mind and soul. 

You talk to yourself, to your soul, to the one which is hiding behind the worldly mask, the you...the actual You!!

And that you is different from what the world see, think and perceive, the actual You is like an innocent child, who gets out of the closet only to play and dance, in the blinding rain..where world is invisible and inaudible!

Book Review: The Palace of Illusions

Author: Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Publisher: Picador India
ISBN: 978-0-330-45853-5
Pages: 360


'Panchali's Mahabharat' - says it all! 

The author has given Draupadi a chance, well deserved, to voice her opinions, feelings and thoughts over the biggest battle of mythological India. 

Mahabharta has always been described as out of the world tale of heroic men, their values, beliefs, perceptions and their outlook of the world and people. The author adds another dimension to the narration of this folklore. 

The book trails the life of Panchali - wife of five Pandava brothers, the story of her birth, her lonely childhood, her relationship with her brother, her marriage, fondness for Arjun, secret emotional connect with Karna, sour yet perfunctory relationship with kunti, undying hatred for Kaurvas and story of her revenge....all in her words. 

The beauty of the tale is though the reader knows the series of events, its characters and the end, yet look forward for Panachali's narration, to know her part of story, the war within herself, her confusions, perceptions and her vulnerabilities. 

A story of a young girl, wife, mother, daughter in law, a princess, queen and finally a distraught wife which grows indifferent and tired with life as she moves towards her end.

A must read for all those who love to dig into history and its characters!

The Outlook has summed it perfectly -  'Divakurani has given Draupadi a powerful voice'!!

Married!!



M back! Welcome me back guys with a different status...MARRIED! From single to married in an year!Life is to change...and this change is huge!! I can feel it more, coz my bliss shifted me from saddi dilli to amchi mumbai!!

After 3 months of settling down at the new place, m back to the blogosphere, promising myself to write more often and frequently. A break of 10 months...and in between life changed! New people, new relations added to the book called LIFE!!

Still understanding, where I am, what I am expected to do, how am i expected to behave, life is moving on a fast pace and today the marriage is 3 months old! Iam a wifey now, a bahu, sister-in law but still a daughter! Hope this new phase of my life be as beautiful forever as the way it has started.

I have grown up, from a notorious bubbly girl to a mature understanding wife. But still i would like that girl to be always in me. A girl with full of naughtiness, ideas, ambitions, laughter, stories, excitement and charm! I wish myself and my hubby darling all the best for the new life that we have started!
