May You Rest in Peace…


A star in the dark,

Rain in the drought,

A light in the path,

Like spring in desert,

You were the hope of the town.

No word or action could ever describe you and your deeds,

And the knowledge you imparted always.

With you gone forever,

This town has suffered a huge loss.

You might be dead for all,

But your knowledge is alive and will always be.

Thus, you live, you live in our hearts eternally.

The heaven is blessed today,

For they have gained a gem.

It’s just a note to say,

As you move into a new venture,

I wish you farewell and will miss you till my end! 




They say, “Some people come into our lives and quickly go while some stay for a while and leave their footprints forever”. The same I can say for my Literature teacher and now when he is no more with us, I feel unfortunate. I dedicated my very first blog to him two years ago when I started this blog. This post is a tribute to him. May his soul  rest in peace.

Ashtami Pujan During Navratri..

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Navratri is a festival of nine days celebrated all over in India,  in which people worship nine forms of ‘Goddess Durga’. People celebrate these nine days by fasting for all nine days and worshipping the Goddess in her different forms. On the eighth or ninth day of Navratri, there is a tradition of serving girls, the Prasad which is prepared as an offering to the deity and with that some gifts are also presented to them. This year, I followed the ritual with great interest and remained on fast on the seventh day and opened my fast on Ashtmi pujan i.e the eighth day of Navratri. I prepared everything on my own and enjoyed it so much today! 🙂

A letter I never posted..

large (6)





Million of words running through this mind,

Yet the lips are unable to combine.

Overwhelmed with sentiments,

Hands pick themselves up,

And dared to write in a letter,

All that is locked inside.

May be, for the mind cannot bear the burden anymore.

That’s the way it is and will always be.

My disposition for you never really changed,

Though, I pretended oppositely .

This letter does not suppose any response.

Today I have gathered some courage,

To say things in this letter smoothly,

Which I must post now.

But as I take a step ahead,

The feet become numb,

And a chill runs down my heart,

Blowing away the courage,

It has been collecting  from years.

You left bidding farewell forever,

While I kept waiting,

Holding a letter, I never posted.

Behind the Character..

Mere walking the path is not going to help.

You got to suffer through the misery like they did.

You think you can simply dwell in happiness,

Without persevering on for things which you and me always forbid. 

Suffering might be just a word for fools like you and me,

But it defines a whole different story.

It is the suffering which makes them what you see in front of you.

Suffering builds the character and creates a legend out of the blue!

Their characters tell the story,

                                             Of  how they have  suffered and suffered again.

      How they erected themselves, and ruled in their own domains.

                                                               Thus, spatted in the face of what you call fate or destiny,

                         For they wrote theirs on their own,

                         And are declared legendary!
