Grit

Call it a cliche or a stubbornness of a determined mind, but I won’t let you disappear, for I believe in my love more than your pretentious callous demeanor

Ponder for a While

If you want  to change the person you are in love with, morphing her into someone like how you imagined in your grails, you are in love with your thoughts not with the person

Wings from Corinthian Times

If I possess a pair of wings
like the birds from Corinthian Times  
I would have given it you my love,
for you to glide to freedom,
and I know 
no matter where you would have gone 
your thoughts would have anchored on my soul 
making me smile in blithe, 
for my world is always infused with your thoughts

Anxious Soul

What are you searching for?
day and night,
in crowd and when alone,
in solace and in restlessness,
what are you looking for?
you deny to accept it,
but besides those nostalgic thoughts
nothing else will come and pay a visit

Surviving the test of Time

Showing you don’t care is easy, you throw the person out of all equations and ignore their very existence. But to truly mean you care for someone is an arduous task, for it is more than any spoken words, you nurture hope, you surround with empathy, you defy all perturbations, you essentially embrace a person without reasoning and never get influenced by any externalities to define your love.

And if you see someone who you thought cared for you but because of circumstantial incidents the person drifted away, well my friend then that person never truly cared for you. Ethereal bond survives time, never diminishes its shines and that heart will throb with increase escalation even when you are meeting after eons. My love for you is such, it has and will survive the test of times

Essay on a Living Legend

Over summer vacation Shaurya got this amazing experience of interviewing a living legend who has survived the India Pakistan partition. He is father of my dear friend Karan Bhagat. Shaurya is writing a memoir on him. What I am posting is a 2000 words essay. Little long to read but worth the time.

I want to take this moment to thank my friend Karan Bhagat and his noble father Anant Simran Singh, for their time and support

You can read the essay here

Noble Desires

Anyone can pick your shattered pieces,
anyone can love you in transient burst, anyone can hold you for a few moments
anyone can give you comfort for a little while,

But to find someone
who prefer empathy over sympathy,
who enthuse patience over anxiety
and consumes complex thoughts in calamity
who lifts your soul
who doesn’t focus on mending your flaws
who believes in you more than you do
who shows you can shine many hue brighter
than what you think about yourself

Finding someone with such love is sure an arduous task
but if you lend me your hand
I will selflessly love you
and bestow such desires and some more

Ostentatious Bond

When you need to watch your words,
weigh every thought to ensure you are not hurt,
when there exists heart wrenching silence,
like an eerie clouding some devilish night,
you know time has come
to snap such ostentatious bond
