Last night the tree in our colony uprooted. With it innumerable leaves lost their lives unexpectedly. It is summer and they were hoping to spread their wings and bring into the comfort of their shade all creatures- big and small, long and short, humans and animals. And yet, despite their pure resolve they had to unwillingly lay down their lives for a man made development- The Metro that runs below our building and the once upon a tree. Is development worth the gruesome murder of a part of Ma Nature? Now, I understand negative vibrations and its dangerous side effects. … Continue reading Lost Nature!
Trying to do something again, even after life has dealt a severe blow is definitely not easy. The same goes for a heart that is broken and refuses to patch up a hurtful past and carry on and retry. Retrying can be frustrating and guilt prone for one feels that one is betraying one’s past by doing so. But, that isn’t the case. Retrying to make a better present, retrying to help push one’s hurtful past behind us, retrying to succeed in life again is not against any law. In fact, the law of nature is such that aids us … Continue reading Retry Friend!
My roots spread in the deep fragments of the lovely luscious earth far and wide. I have sowed the seeds of life innumerable times and am happy to see them raising families everywhere. More than that, it makes me proud that they never gave up the values that they had been taught while young – always help humanity, in whatever manner possible. Yet, they suffer. In spite of doing good, in spite of sacrifice and selflessness they continue to be misused and abused. Just like me. ‘Does it run in the family?’ I wonder. You never know. Life … Continue reading If Trees Could Talk, They Would Tell Us……
Even as Mother Earth groans in pain Letting out Nauseating drools Of collected insensitive waste Relentlessly, selfishly stored By callous humans, There is hope I feel – Mankind will understand, Learn lessons from past mistakes. When the tsunami Hit the shores of my city way back I understood how vulnerable We all arrogant fools are. Watching big establishments Float away Despite/inspite all development In a neighboring nation, My heart goes out! The time for the last call May not be near at all. Mother Earth just decided Enough was enough. Conveying to us a wake-up call. The ultimate … Continue reading All Is Not Lost Still…
What do they ask for? Just for a few grains and some twigs for their little nests they give us the joy of life. Just imagine! You are exhausted with the daily work, you open the window to get in some fresh air and then you hear the chirping of little birds. How melodious it is to hear!

It was spring in the air when we moved to the town with trees, flowers and birds opening their arms wide to welcome a season known for its colour and joy. All creatures, big and small are known to wait anxiously for summer to bloom to its fullest. Do we people even realize the importance of summer and spring? I remember when I was in the city earlier, all that I could think of as soon as summer arrived was, “how hot and sweaty it is out here!” And, I’d rather be seated within closed doors ‘enjoying’ the cool air-conditioned breeze. There, in the town I surprisingly awoke every morning to greet the first rays of the sun. The energy that I received from the early morning rays kept me going the whole day with enthusiasm. In the city, I had no time for such ‘frivolities.’ I would rather catch a few extra winks of sleep to refrain from dozing off at work after a late night. Amidst nature’s rich expanse, life runs at its own pace. It just cannot be rushed I was soon to realize. Continue reading Celebrating the Environment
