Too much of a good thing?

Dear readers, here is a short story I wrote some time ago. Hope you like it!

“I can’t wait to go to Mumbai!’ he cried, jumping up and down around his mother, who didn’t seem to share his enthusiasm. But of course, he didn’t let that bother him. He was too excited to care.

“Stop irritating me, Rama.” His mother was busy in the kitchen, her fingers expertly kneading the dough for the hot rotis (Indian bread) they were to have in a while. He plopped himself onto the platform, beside the dough bowl, desperate to get her attention.

“Do you know what I plan to do there?”, he asked, holding his mother’s face in his tiny hands, forcing her to look at him.

every waist you leer,

There’s something about the hills… (part 2)

Uttarkashi, India

 

What makes a place truly memorable?

So  much that you literally fall in love with it?

So much that you wanna come back and make it your own?

Its not just the hills, the rivers, the chill and the sky…

Its something more…

a lot more…

Uttarakhand, India


There’s something about the hills,

I can’t quite explain,

That always pulls me in,

like a drunk to his bane,

except that it leaves me

Priceless Friendship

Friends come into your life,

always for a reason,

that may not be apparent,

like the change of seasons,

All you need to do,

is keep your eyes open,

and your heart all willing,

to soak in the emotion!

This poem is in honour of a dear friend who has always wanted a poem dedicated to him, so here goes…hope reading this lights up your face as much as your words light up mine!

The first time I saw you,

you were introducing yourself,

Manoeuvring a Mumbai Market

Image                                    Going to shop
                                        in a bustling marketplace
                                           is a lot like going to war…
 
                                       You won’t get what you want
                                           without a scrape or fight..
        But,
it is entertaining,
even humorous..
in hindsight!
                                                                                         

Hawkers on your left,

Hawkers on your right,

Poor old footpaths..

nowhere in sight!

Ever swelling crowds,

spilling on to the roads,

Tweet inspired Poem

 
 
Some get married for love,
some do so for family,
but they married for a cause,
so noble and eleemosynary!
 
 

It all started when the girl,

set eyes on a six months baby,

abandoned by a teenage mother,

who was an HIV +ve lady.

The tiny tot wasn’t infected,

all she needed was a home,

Wrath of a woman (A sketch poem)

Don’t you dare misconstrue my tears

as a sign of weakness,

It is for your own good, I say,

Coz the day I decide to put you down,

you will only be left

…..to pray

Perks of a Train journey

      For
the many
    Indians 
      who opt
for a  
long
distance
 train
journey
   either 
                         by choice or..
out of
    no choice!
 

You step out of the house,

wondering why the hell on earth,

you chose to go by train,

when of planes, there was no dearth!

You then remind yourself,

At least it’s air-conditioned,
