Hang on

I was in the middle of a very sad post here when I randomly checked my Facebook. There was a notification. One of my favourite people in the world tagged me in a post he shared, for the first time ever. It made me feel better and I deleted the sad post.

Was it god’s signal that a miracle is still possible? That this is not the end of the world and things might get better? I don’t know. Maybe something good is just around the corner, waiting for the traffic to clear. Hope it comes soon.

Till then, I’ll hang on and not let go.


शायरी- ख़ैरियत

आख़िर अपना ख़्याल हम क्यों रखें,
जब खुद फरिश्तों को हमारी फ़िक्र है..
तबीयत तो तभी ठीक हो गई
जब पता चला उनके ख़यालों में हमारा भी ज़िक्र है

The American Dream is a Segregated Nightmare

Short Story Long

Hate won last night. Hate won after a long, gruelling campaign.

And no, when I say “hate”, I don’t mean Trump.

But if that’s what you think I mean when I say “hate”, then hate is still winning.

Let us drench in the rain
and let our sorrows dissolve
Let us shout in vain

and travel back in time
Let us write poetry
even it doesn’t rhyme

Let us close our eyes
and avoid what crosses our sight
Let us believe it never happened

Let us numb the pain even if
it’ll be worse when we feel it
Let us disappear and return only when
there remains no need to heal it


Writing guests posts on a dear friend’s blog is always a pleasure.

A Blast Of Random

It has been six months since I was trapped in this desolate room. As usual, the sun rises, sunlight filters through the trees and revives the grass. Raindrops rejuvenate the soil. Birds chirp. Leaves sway and the breeze scents the earth. Flowers bloom. Dew drops establish their kingdom across grasses. Butterflies whisper from one flower to another. Sunlight sparkles, rain splatters and the moonbeam illuminates just enough. But I cannot see any of these, because my fate decreed a life in a closet for me.

At first instance, my master seemed a kind man to me. When he brought me in this house, I anticipated a royal treatment. I expected him to take me along wherever he went. I admired him and considered myself fortunate to have him as my master. Whenever he touched me, I felt over-the-top bliss. I could sense that he adored me as much as I…
