I often wonder why the entire humankind is running behind the money, power, achievements and all stuff which is not going to stay with them.
Most of the people run behind money like mad, not because they don’t have it but for the silly reason that they want more and more and more. Knowing the very fact that, this extra accumulation of wealth is neither going to increase their appetite nor their life span. Continue reading
As New Year arrives people tend to adopt many resolutions and try to follow them. The number of resolutions may vary. Some feel they are too perfect to make any resolutions, some do not believe in waiting for a new year to make resolutions. Some make a single resolution and see that they follow it throughout the year and also thereafter. Some have a list of resolutions which they try to attempt and succeed in few or all of them. Some make a resolution not to make any resolutions. Continue reading
why do I come here?
to quench the ever-growing longing of literary orgasm
to extinguish my burning desires
to satiate my greed of scholarly wisdom
to let the greats interact with
to let the knowledge show its power
to remain acquiescent
to drink the nectar seeping out of conversant souls
to let the ocean of intelligence release the tsunami
out of the volcanic eruption of the convoluted brains
why do I come here?
to realize the supremacy of the inner self
to convey, to communicate, to connect
to discover and get discovered
to learn how to avoid being offensive
to take away things what human want
to stay human!

Sitting on a railway platform and watching the arrival and departure of the trains is the best pastime one can have. At least for this, one need not have the smart phone or the internet. Since you don’t have to catch a train, you can sit relaxing, perhaps sipping a cup of tea and watch passengers rushing for their seats.

This straightforward question started troubling my mind when I encountered a situation which is quite common for all.
Recently I had to go to the railway station to pick up my wife as my happy days as forced bachelor were coming to an end with the arrival of my wife from her mother’s place. She always insisted on me picking her up from the station. Possibly she wanted to read my expressions on encountering her after a lull. But I am doubly sure even if the expectations on the expressions were not up to the mark she is not going to catch a return train back home in any case? Continue reading
O my doppelgänger, I can see your anger
you wan’t me smart, but I remain candor
that has cost me heavily in all my endeavors
my contemporaries excelled, I remained in fears
you told me to be diplomatic but I didn’t change
my straightforwardness was regarded as strange
you asked me to be ambitious I remained same
neither cared for fame nor worried for name
you told me to be opportunists, biased and selfish
but I thanklessly didn’t even fulfill your wish
so, O my doppelgänger, I respect your anger
I will remain as I am, don’t try to tamper
