I was a child when Ma first introduced me to chess- with 32 pieces and 64 symmetrical squares, it was not only a majestic black and white board but also a stratagem of infinite possibilities of winning. But what truly intrigued me is the probable hypothesis of each and every piece on the board: from... Continue Reading →

Miss me, my darling

Mon amour, my darling, Am I a sudden interruption in a moment? When I catch you gazing at this antique heart You said I am a curator of your museum Perhaps, a dialect of this compelling language, Where I discerned your tears and felt your scars My thoughts are on demarcation, My drafts are pretty...

What makes a man search for meaning? Purpose What makes a woman pursue her heart? Love What makes a stoic person be a realist? Wisdom What makes a little boy persistent in his art? Passion Why is time dominant and intriguing? Unpredictability What makes a witness to have audacity to lie? Fear What makes the... Continue Reading →

A Traveller’s Journal: North

(30.4598° N, 78.0644° E) I've arrived in the city of solitude I've left the four walls of my sheltered existence And now I proceed, in search for an inarticulating desire To learn something new on this high altitude I'm constantly challenging myself- Moving towards the steep hill, Crossing few yards of the lychee orchard There...

A Dubious Encounter

City Dwellers

This is a dreamer's euphoria: a sea of colorful neon lights illuminating the night sky. The dazzling LED projections are enhancing the steel and concrete structures, submerging the aesthetic view of the tall skyscraper. Here, the elevation secludes you from the realm of basics. The echo of the boisterous crowd with the traffic hurdle makes... Continue Reading →

The Little Girl

Nostalgia hit me again When I reminisce a short glimpse of that moment Archived somewhere in my memory lane That's what my old man said- "There's a little girl and her meticulous mind Always in a daze, Leaving me with dozens of questions from time to time" Some may say, My metaphors are a resemblance...

Face off

Back to square one- I'm meditating in close proximity of this perennial battle Between the mind and the heart Here the version of love is incomprehensible All my senses have semantically lost the track I'm expanding the horizon of my rational judgment This is my constant dilemma I'm recklessly reviving the links to my heart,...

I'm eloquently narrating my speech prior to your arrival As I'm flustered But my words are periodically refined While my dopamine level is rapidly increasing I'm fond of this first impression That is indelible on my mind You quote your words remarkably Illustrating this fragile conception Of love, purpose and fidelity of one's character I'm...
