Apart from reading and writing, taking pictures has been one of my active interests. Not that I am a great photographer or something but, I am interested in Nature and am willing to put life on hold while I photograph something that I find interesting. This grasshopper stopped by the other day giving me a… Continue reading Grasshopper in my backyard
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… 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… Continue reading Retry Friend!
This poem was composed in the year 2010, posted on March 7, 2010 for Woman's Day. It stands good even today... For all those celebrating INTERNATIONAL WOMAN'S DAY.. Woman, Beautiful woman.

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… 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… 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.
