A boulevard of sufferings

Candid shots- pexels.com

A boulevard of worldly sufferings
I chose to stroll at twilight.
A jobless peasant sulking with
Only adversity in belly at roadside !

This boulevard is flooded with tears,
I failed to cleanse with moonlight.
the deafening cries of a mother
Who fails to feed her poor child !

This boulevard of trembling souls,
The victims of apathetic affluence.
The heartless fortunate capitalists
Who ignored them on the road !

This boulevard of cracking bones,
The skeletal remains of humankind.
I tread through this rubble of sickness,
Succumbing to blows of immoral kinds !

Embellished Sky

I can hear the silent murmur
Under this nebulous sky.
So much to forget till December
So less to cherish till I die !

Amorphous dreams dragging
With it’s last remaining hopes.
Where’s my internal Rhapsody ,
Where’s the splendor of my soul ?

O my serene, embellished heavens!
Give me the vigor to break barriers,
Rain on me with your healing bliss
And help me to fly even higher !

The Fumes

You wish to venture out,
Out in the valley of love and hope.
But what you inhale
Is the toxic fume of hate !

You wish to see those
Welling eyes, the eyes welling
With compassion and faith.
But those eyes, induce fires of rage !

My dreams are burning
Our world is getting choked.
There’s a drought in our valley,
The valley we dream to grow !

Hate knows nothing but Chaos ,

Kindness knows nothing but love and order !

Expectations, a litmus test?

The basis of all relationships is expectations. Our expectations from beloved, children, parents, family and friends.

A man is truly able to love the one who fulfils his expectations. But the expectations are destined to be broken.

It takes birth in the mind of humans and that’s why it very often becomes mystery to others. Even if someone desires to fulfil the expectations of his dear one ,he is never able to fulfil it completely.

And from there struggle takes birth, every relationship is transformed into struggle. But if humans do not make expectations the basis of their relationships and embrace relationships the way it is, isn’t it true that life will become flawless with only happiness and prosperity?

No ,life is not that simple. It is complex, it is like a filter full of chemicals through which an impure soul goes through. And after death it comes out through that filter, purer than before.

Glory Beyond

There’s a bridge across
An ocean full of miseries.
The bridge in the mist
To a paradise beyond !

I tread through that bridge
Through the darkness and haze.
Limped through the thorns
Breaking time and space !

And then I felt….

The caressing blooms
Healing bruises of my feet !
As I dwindle to that glory
Shimmering in the eternal now !

Fluttering Freedom

Fluttering Freedom
Glowing in Diversity,
Persevere through time!

Suppressed, knocked Voices
Thriving through obscurity,
In land of freedom!


Inherent Imperfections are true to humankind but the ability to be not enslaved by it is the true meaning of freedom.

Happy Independence Day…

The Voice of Him

I am neither a body nor It’s part. I am knowledge, creation, reason and eternal.

I am everything, yet I am nothing! I am present in each and every atom of this universe and beyond.

I am time, I am life and death. I reflect in your noble deeds and I exist in every noble thought.

Behold me by beholding your true self!


The pledge or promise that benefits the whole society must have its value.

When a man’s promise or his decision harms entire humankind, it becomes must to break that promise.

This is a peculiarity of human nature—

When a swing reaches one end, it gets pulled towards the opposite direction and begins to move towards it.

Similarly, an intelligent human being begins to have contrary thoughts the moment a task gets completed.

This very quality is both his weakness and strength. This very quality keeps a man away from sins and atrocities.

However this very quality keeps him away from achieving success!

Stretching Ahead

Spider web of Dilemmas
Brooding in an uncertain mind.
Bottomless swamp of confusion,
Struggling to accumulate meaning!

It’s difficult to know my existence,
It’s difficult to generate courage.
My confusions are bigger than me
Or I am bigger than my problems?

Somehow I,

Echo through the darkness,
Stretching myself through the web,
Pulling beyond to beat my crises,
As I hum the melody of my inner voice!

The Purpose of Fear

When there is nothing left in the world worth seeing then the man looks towards God!

The making of time cannot be avoided. Only our sense of understanding it can change.

So quickly Year 2020 brought August to us that we hardly prepared ourselves to welcome it. Infact, nobody seems to care about it’s coming. The ravages 2020 brought to us is far from over.

Since we are running slow with all the fears engulfing us amid Covid 19 pandemic, we are hardly noticing the ticking of clock. But the time will not stop even if we cease to exist.

People are fed up now and the virus is peaking. They want to enjoy the freedom though time and again they are jolted by the fear of the virus which brings their sense back.

A certain incident happened which brought a rare smile on many faces. I was outside a grocery store and the keeper was struggling to persuade the crowd to maintain social distancing, they made a herd like bees.

They were relentless and stupidly ignoring the virus looming around them. I took it on myself to teach them a lesson. I marched towards the most belligerent one who was arguing at the top of his voice. I told him to calm down and follow social distancing as it is for everyone’s safety.

But then he confronted me and asked, “Excuse me gentleman, who are you to teach me wisdom? “

I chuckled and observed many faces attacking me with their looks though the shopkeeper looked at me with hope, the hope of saving him from that chaos.

I replied, “I am no one but a victim “.
Everyone got confused, they became curious and I prepared myself to give them a final blow.

I finally revealed, “I have just returned from 14 days of quarantine”.

The words echoed like fire through kerosene. As soon as I said it the most belligerent one jumped few feet backwards and the others followed too. The entire crowd was shell shocked.

They were suddenly haunted by the virus. I became their virus though I was lying. My weapon was fear which brought their senses back.

It brought smiles on the face of the shopkeeper and many onlookers. And everyone came back to their civilised best and followed social distancing .

I guess that’s the purpose of fear. It really makes us feel alive. It injects a sudden thrill which we need from time to time in order to comprehend life in its purest form.
That’s the true message of this pandemic, slow down, amend your ways and feel the precious life which we ignore very often.
