all study no play

I have always studied like an obedient scholar

but none of the subjects had made life simpler

I read chemistry understanding reactions better

but my chemistry never became better with her

I studied physics too much like an avid litterateur

that in no way helped in getting physical with her

I confess I was not a history student in contrary

but that can’t affect badly my background history

though I am glad that my mathematics was bright

but that didn’t help in getting my equations right

statistics too was a cakewalk like bioinformatics

but I never commented on anyone’s vital statistics

my geography looked affected with some syndrome

so I could never find out the location of her home

for me even the economics remained unexplained

that was cause for my pockets remaining drained

I had no clue on the importance of political science

and I could never become a liar under its guiadance

the study of engineering too was out of the race

as i could never really enginner my personal space

therefore I can very well say all study and no play

can become the real cause of a person’s mental decay

our story

your agonies are yours, my sufferings are mine

we have differing mind we have distinct design

your pleasures are yours, my happiness is mine

we have differing souls, we have separate sign

you are a party animal but I am a lonely bird

you remain in your flock but I prefer my herd

you withdraw yourself but I want it on the face

you may be an angel but I am from human race

your lifestyle is different, my lifestyle is discrete

you always want to win but I embrace the defeat

we have different lives, but something is common

that makes two of us bit different from everyone

though my story is mine and your story is yours

let’s carve a fresh story that can be called ours

my allergies

They say that I am full of zeal and energy

but the reason is that I am full of allergy

I am allergic to prevailing malfeasance

I am allergic to professional negligence

I am allergic to waking up in morning

I am allergic to roots of global warming

I am allergic to people behaving stupid

I am allergic to someone playing cupid

I am allergic to negativity in the masses

I am allergic to weight reduction classes

I am allergic to facing weekly mondays

I am allergic to working slots on sundays

I am allergic to people always on phone

I am allergic to fingers full of gemstone

I am allergic to people predicting future

I am allergic to people married to computer

I am allergic to the internal server error

I am allergic to people promoting terror

if one feels hurt I tender my appologies

I am proud and I love al these allergies

the reservation

After the efforts put for yesterday’s conversation

I will try to convey to you without any reservation

who knows tomorrow one may plan preservation

this should not build the unexpected frustration

let us honestly concentrate on today’s reservations

it is much hated word in many developed nations

in some countries it is the symbol of identification

but surely it doesn’t go well with new generation

reservation ignoring abilities is a social suffocation

if required it may be limited to the field of education

the reservation for tourism be the only application

which gives equal opportunity for entire population

reservation should be positivity without any negation

like the faith is nothing but trust without reservation

Men-the weaker sex

I was reading on internet about various instances where a husband has given divorce to his wife just by pronouncing ‘Talaq’. And with the advent of new technology in our daily lives, the deliverance of this type of divorce also has automatically been upgraded to match the latest trends.

So, now it is the video call, the WhatsApp, the Facebook and all such tech friendly social media which is being exploited by the dominant men to show women their place! The big question is why the mindsets are not upgraded?

I always wonder, if leave the religious binding, how exactly it works? I tried telling my wife, ‘Shut up’, Shut up’, ‘Shut up’, three times, still there was not much appreciable effect. However I have noticed that when the same is from her side, even for just one time, the effect is perceptible. This is attributed immediately to woman dominating in the family. So, is there anything wrong in that?

Men literally have no moral, social and technical right to dominate in a family. The only fact that they have a different biological structure that makes them less susceptible to physical abuse and harm is being taken as the license to declare themselves superior.

The greater part of the society still follows that orthodox unethical logic and resists the change. But the real fact is that, if the social security is guaranteed, there is absolutely no need for women to be dependent on men but the vice-versa is not true. That makes men the weaker sex.

How many single fathers are successful? If we see the data, due to natural and social causes, more women were forced to stay single despite having the responsibility of raising their kids. Men immediately jump to the next boat of marriage which they do get easily, thanks to the biological and social reasons. That again proves men the weaker sex.

Most of the men are born to women (except those who indulge in rape and killings of women) and when they are young, they understand the power of a woman. They are purely dependent on their mother and respect women till the testosterone levels rise, social influences dominate and mould them into the absurd personality of a man. That is the real sign of a weaker sex.

How many men know how to change the diapers of the babies? How to bottle feed them? What is their immunization schedule? When to start the solid food? And above all how much time do men spend with their infants though being the best phase of a man’s life?

Few of my uncles have never held their kids on their lap? They limit themselves to asking the questions, where is the kid? What is she or he doing? Is everything fine? That’s it! They have never sat with their kids for talking with them, playing with them, making a project or making them do their homework.

These men think, their job is only to earn money and that is the reason why they are the head of the family. They think that they run the family and without them everything will come to a standstill. How can one call such men as fathers? They don’t understand that this limits them to mere sponsors or in most case, the ‘sperm donator’.

So, if a man gets a civilian job that requires him to stay away from family frequently or for long then better to take up farming instead. Those who feel that being busy in meetings, staying late night in office for earning money is fetching comfort to their family members and helping them leading an extravagant life, it is totally wrong. There are many things money can’t replace and one of them is togetherness. It is always the ‘family first’.

Marriage is a deemed institution with no one as the principal. Husband and wife are the faculty members and other relatives, the supporting staff. Parents raise the kids imparting the education that no external school can. I am still not able to understand how it can be closed by just a voice or a video call or a message?

mysterious silence

your mysterious silence is killing me

your continuous absence is grilling me

how can you forget all our conversations

the literary temptations, the hesitations

your curious heart and untamed soul

your frequent visits your casual stroll

now your callousness is giving no clue

it is the same me and it is the same you

but I can sense an unprecedented change

your ways of response too are strange

is the friendship only for the benefits

expecting no profits whether it splits

if that is the case, we need to reconsider

so that mutual respect doesn’t turn bitter

and we stay happy in our own cocoons

and let the friendship end up in fumes

death of life

the humans are striving to live their life

the negative forces are too strong to desist

staying alive is the most difficult exercise

probability of tomorrow is ceasing to exist

we succumb to temptation, we succumb to fear

we succumb to worries, we succumb to despair

we keep falling for prey of others opinions of us

survival of fittest became survival of the wicked

though we feel alive and awake holding our breath

but the fact is that life is dying it own natural death
