The Colours of Life

Life draped in colours,
Shines with every breath,
Beats with unwanted grief,
Paints a bigger picture,
And those who see it
Through their soul,
Truly fulfil a greater purpose
In the scheme of cosmos.
An order in the great
Chaos !

Life is not only sufferings but also the pleasures we embrace in the form of Colours of Life.

The memories of good times with our people , our presence in the shelter of nature, all of it fill our life with colours like a beautiful painting evoking emotions that touches our soul.


In fact, life is all about enjoying the magnificence of colours through our eyes, which is only possible if we stay in the moment and enjoy every second we are gifted with.

Happy Holi to all …

Where is his Heaven?

There’s a drought of hope,
And only sufferings bloom ,
With the blood of the innocents,
In the middle of the war!


A soldier lifts his bruised head,
From the rubble of his land,
Which was once a paradise,
Now a barren land of chaos.

His dreams soaked in tears,
His sufferings healed with smoke,
He limps for his motherland,
He lives and fight for his motherland.

Where is his heaven?

Maybe, deep inside his soul
Reside the love of his people,
Though his body walk on embers,
But his soul Is already in paradise!

The Wars We Fight

When Ego become eyes,
And the heart loses sight,
Then blood loses its worth
And is spilled with hate on earth

The brothers who fight wars,
And the fathers who lost all,
Become memories etched with tears,
That soaked in sacrifice and prayers.

The men who fight wars,
Never deserve to fight at all
They fight and die for love,
In the wars forced by their lords!

Mighty eye of the Karma,
Watching and weighing their sins,
Innocents will attain salvation,
While criminals would see their end!

Broken, Persevere, Rise

Broken
You’re knocked on the anvil,
Blows after blows until you break
Into pieces or crushed into powder,
Until your dreams bleed to death !

Persevere
Pick your pieces and hold them
Together with your sweat,
Lift your head and crawl on earth, But
never give up until you lose your breath

Rise
Muscles creaking to reach,
The greatness hidden beneath!
Your ‘Will’ forged in fire of Belief,
No Pain can melt man of steel!

Division of Life

Life divided in moments,
The moments that tame us,
Through various strings ,
Tying us like a puppet.

Strings of sorrow,
Drag us towards pain.
Strings draped in desires,
Pull us towards failure.

But there’s a string of strength
From a shimmering unknown.
Pull it with your will,
And master the strings of fate !

Pleasures of the Path

Underneath the angry sky,
Pushing against the angry gales,
I venture in the wild.

I have seen a dream once,
There’s something draped in gold,
Waiting for me beyond .

In pursuit of that reverie,
I fought a war against the wild,
But the war never seemed to end!

When, finally the sun shone,
The glory beyond seemed futile,
As my heart breathed pleasures of the wild!

The pic above is of Chandra River in the Lahaul region of Himachal Pradesh. The weather turned bad and the icy gales were pushing us from the road . In spite of harsh weather and freezing temperature of -10°c or more I somehow clicked this beauty in its full glory.

I hope you guys also enjoy this.

Boat of Life

Life may seem mundane, insignificant most of the times but these moments are very precious , make it count, make it productive and one day it would all make sense in the form of fond memories.

Desires rock the boat of life,
Let It sail in the ocean of fortitude,
Let it shun desires that bring sufferings,
Let it realise it’s purpose,
That is to swim in the ocean of ‘Now’,
With only Karma in it’s heart
And not distracted by results of past!

A Long Night

Life is wailing in the cold,
A long night it has to pass,
By walking on embers of grief,
The sufferings tethered to past!

When this life will see light?
Hidden behind veil of time !
Darkened by misery of past
And blinded by hope of tomorrow!

Fear, desires, worldly attachments,
Let them melt with ego in the ‘Now’
Let life flourish in the meadow of ‘Now’
Let it cleanse itself in the elixir of ‘Now’!

The Valley at Night

There’s something about darkness,
Which makes you adore the light more.
There’s something within us ,
Which guides us to our soul !

What is it that keeps your fire alive,
In spite of losing your shore ?
Maybe the churning darkness within,
That makes you adore the light more !

Darkness truly have it’s worth…..

Those Noble Thoughts

Those noble thoughts which unite us as true human beings beyond religion, are nothing less than God.

These thoughts, which seek pleasure in the joy of others, which crave strength in the strength of others, convey the true meaning of God which most of us fail to understand.

We may fight in the name of religion, nation and wealth but one thing will never forgive us for our sins , and that is Nature, our planet earth which is equivalent to God. What we do with nature it will give it back to us, it is our Karma. It will punish us for our sins.

I can only hope we understand it in time before it is too late…
