Marriage : A thing of the past?

A LEAF IN THE WIND

 Traditionally, marriage is the unification of two people of opposite genders. The newer concepts of gay marriages, roommates of opposite gender and various questions about gender and sexuality complicate the meaning of this age-old tradition. What does marriage really mean in this day and age? Maybe it is worthwhile; to revisit the meaning of marriage before this institution starts to lose its past significance.

Prodigy

The smell of spicy food was making Sam hungry. After a long wait at the restaurant, the waiter came with the food. He had a mask over his face. A bowl of soup was placed on the table. Sam looked for her parents, who were sitting with her, a minute ago. They were nowhere around. The soup was bubbling. Out of the bubbles, long serpents came out and wound around her neck. She was gasping for breath. Then everything became blurry. Read more…

Jaane Kya Baat

जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती, बड़ी लम्बी रात है

Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai

जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती, बड़ी लम्बी रात है

Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai

सारी सारी रात मुझे इसने जगाया
सारी सारी रात मुझे इसने जगाया
जैसे कोई सपना जैसे कोई साया
कोई नहीं लगता है कोई मेरे साथ है
जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती …

Saari Saari Raat Mujhe Isne Jagaya
Saari Saari Raat Mujhe Isne Jagaya
Jaise Koi Sapna Jaise Koi Saaya
Koi Nahin Lagta Hai Koi Mere Saath Hai
Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai…

धक-धक कभी से जिया डोल रहा है…….
धक-धक कभी से जिया डोल रहा है
घूँघट अभी से मेरा खोल रहा है
दूर अभी तो पिया की मुलाक़ात है
जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती …

Dhakdhak Kabhi Se Jiya Dol Raha Hai……
Dhakdhak Kabhi Se Jiya Dol Raha Hai
Ghungat Abhise Mera Khol Raha Hai
Door Abhi To Piya Ki Mulaqat Hai
Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai

जब जब देखूँ मैं ये चाँद सितारे
ऐसा लगता है मुझे लाज के मारे
जैसे कोई डोलि कोई बारात है
नींद नहीं आती …

Jab Jab Dekhoon Maein Yeh Chand Sitare
Aaisa Lagta Hai Mujhe Laaj Ke Mare
Jaise Koi Doli Koi Baraat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai…

जाने क्या बात है, जाने क्या बात है
नींद नहीं आती, बड़ी लम्बी रात है
नींद नहीं आती, बड़ी लम्बी रात है

Jaane Kya Baat Hai, Jaane Kya Baat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai
Neend Nahin Aati Badi Lambi Raat Hai

Inner Battle

Please for once do not judge —
Have you never felt confused?
Tortured with an inner grudge,
Shattered, beaten and bruised?

Yes, I am that imperfect fool!
Clinging to my fragile world
Grabbing for any broken tool
My dreamboat sails, unfurled

In my fight against the storm
I am battered but breathing
Questioning the accepted norm,
When easy paths lie waiting.

Moving on with my open wound
Taking a fresh gulp of life
Ready to escape when marooned
Into the scary depths, I dive.
 
Laying my cards on the table
Although I realize, I will die.
My values are non-negotiable,
Will live with a head held high.

Random thoughts again

Anger compels action, spontaneous

Fear anchors in mesh, diaphanous

Where do we come from, where do we go?

Theories and beliefs abound, we don’t know

 

By nature, we value what is rarely found

The mind believes any logic that is sound

Where do we come from, where do we go?

Theories and beliefs abound, we don’t know

 

Super forces  always work to create or kill

Viewpoint, key evaluator of good and evil

Where do we come from, where do we go?

Theories and beliefs abound, we don’t know

 

Entertain, torture or humor before we go

Choice is ours, no one else needs to know

Where do we come from, where do we go?

Theories and beliefs abound, we don’t know

Freebies

It’s one of those days. Everything is beautiful outside. Your are suprised, that your external appearance belies the turmoil of emotions in you. Your heart is crying and bleeding and yet there is no sign of it in the smile that your put on your face.

You look at the road ahead of you. You suddenly notice it extending far ahead. It winds in directions you would not have known unless you saw the car going on it. It seems so far away, and yet it is there.  It made you aware of it’s presence, subtly and surely.  And when it did, it hit you like a ton of bricks.

It is not the obvious that brings tears to your eyes, it is the swift subtle play of thoughts that come from nowhere and catches you off-guard. You know that someone understands. That someone communicates with you in silent words.

You wonder it you ever earned it ? Probably not. It’s just one of those freebies.

The best things in life are free!!
