Friends
Sandhya:What classifies somebody as friend, or foe?Is it that one brings upon us smiles and the other, woe?And yet ironic it is that for a friend I would take a stabA stab; decidedly that would rain pain without a tab!Janani: During your hard times, who have a heart to lend, Is someone I would consider a true friend.Very tiny a circumference is my friend circle,But, being with them makes every moment hysterical!Sandhya: They’re...

Break Free
Sitting in their favourite restaurant, He began to glance across His eyes were not eager Like the time it was when he had met her for the first time.   He had decided to ??spill it out to her That she didn't mean anything now Their marriage was just a formality And for no reason he wanted to give her undue security.   He had met someone pretty and nice She was all that he had dreamt of Slender, sleek and bright   When...

Loved By My Love
The quietness it breeds The coolness it breathes In an atmosphere of holiness In a valley of prayer   My love you enrich and my heart you glorify Rain from your bounty you bring And you pour on the pain of my worries A cleansing and bathing my soul glorifies in As your presence gives warmth and breeze   Love and beauty you define Pain and sadness you decline All in the beauty of your love Your love sets ablaze like coals in a...

Keeping it Real
Sometimes we all need a reminder As much as we may already know it.. To keep it REAL.   When the tide is strong And there's only silence - no song We're doing harm by holding back the tears When we have a broken heart And pretend there's no void We're only delaying healing by many years   When there's much on the outside Causing discomfort on the inside We don't stack up in the closet our fears When there's high winds and storm As long as we're human...

And there was life.. 
And there was life Ennui crept over me insidiously That stars were dull , my coffee cold A futile routine of Home and classes Classes and home That was life a meaningless drone , a ceaseless hum. Of foolish joys and mundane sorrows. I was a spider , weaving my web meticulously, Not knowing why, never digressing . The days lay like blown Gulmohar blooms Blasé with fire that was in them, now no more. Ennui seeped through me A formless mosaic in...

Live Your Dreams
Dream your dreams, Scream your dreams, Know yourself to beam, You will surely gleam! Feel the drain; kill the pain; know the stain; look to train.   Plow your thoughts; see what is caught; know the fickle that rot; go within to sought! Now is the time, sow the seeds; now is the time, to fill the needs. Live in the now, to view the wow!...

What you SEEK is seeking YOU
When you seek revenge For a wrong done to you A fork of revenge unfolds  As if it were made just for you Right in your universe..   When you seek redemption For your sins past A shrine of forgiveness opens up To accommodate all your misgivings..   When you seek closure From a non-committal ending Somewhere dark in the yore Is made a lock that can bind any door   When you seek destruction Of a world you've come to suffer You call upon the very forces To...

Sweet Sacrifice
In a world filled with love, there's nothing called a sacrifice. Anything that is done in the name of love would never be a sacrifice, it would be an insult to call what you do in the name of love - a sacrifice! So where there's Love, there's no sacrifice, it's just love! A poem about the same, for a penny's worth.Wandering between two worlds She saw the contrasts in their lives In...

The Bitter Truth?
Would the truth be shattering If we didn't build a glass wall with what is not?   Would the truth drive us to despair If we didn't live a love untrue?   Would the truth hurt like a thorn If we didn't only hold unreal dethorned roses?   Would the truth taste so bitter If we didn't falsely sugarcoat every word?   Wouldn't the truth instead be comforting If we acknowledged the reality of this world   Wouldn't the truth then be healing If we knew that everything...

iU Gurukul: Yes A New Option!!!
Have Teachers disappeared? Has learning converted into political training? Are students interested in only ideologies? Institutions have converted to political asylums Greatness has lost its meanings You call them institutions, I doubt their relevance   Has the purpose of education changed? Have the ideals of a great society changed? Have the virtues of respect and reverence abandoned? Chancellors are hooted and teachers threshed Gherao and oppositions are the new skills mastered You call these students, I doubt their credentials   Are the protestors the...
