INTO THE WILD-2

Image
Jungle owlet hoots early in the dawn And drags me out of my dream Unwillingly, I molt from the sleeping bag ‘Let’s go commandos’ I hear a call He’s none other than our Raju dai!
Around the fire, we gather Rapid fire round ticks in the clock Heart beats as if it’s gonna explode now Everyone looks pale as if they are sentenced to hell.
With the arms and ammunitions (C’mon not for the war) Including binoculars, books, note books, pen and camera Along the transects we march ahead into the wild.
Oh, that’s black kite points one No, that’s Osprey yells another ‘sssh, this is a jungle not a fish market’ We start whispering.
Few steps ahead, we fit our camera traps Hoping to capture all the animals When it comes to perform walk test I am always a Rhino! We hear a strange noise behind the bushes Wow, there’s a rhino enjoying his meal Hiding behind the trees, we try to have a glance And enjoy the scene.
Following the pugmarks, scats and pellets We run across the river, forest, grasslands Every day is a new learning And …

THE LOST WARRIOR

Image
The mighty canines that smeared many preys are now blunt The tusks that clashed in great battles are just show cases The growls of bear that was once so loud has turned mute The birds have stopped singing and monkeys have stopped climbing The rhinos and hippos have no works except sleeping and basking.
Isn’t it pathetic?
And no more wild as the wilderness is gone Have turned to living specimens with nothing own Compelled to live behind the bars And hear the human’s noise and tease. The legendary is dead and gone.


“Oh dear human, please leave me free! Let me spread my wings and fly in the sky Let me run far and wide Let me sing the songs I like Let me live my own life” Is what I read through their eyes!

LEFT ALONE

Image
Flipping through the pages of my torned diary
every words, letters, sentences are so fresh like the smell of the wet soil
Alas! Is this me?
'We'll never be apart'- is what u said
I smiled back.
'I can't imagine my life without you,' is what i replied.
Now, here I am, we are apart and I am still living!
U used to say  ' u'll never leave me'
Now, I am left alone to freeze


I was begging u, crying over u
but my voice turned mute to u
U no longer feel me
Strangers, what we have become.

I was shattered, trampled
by the disaster that fell upon me
I yelled, cried, punished myself the way i can
with the bruises all around
I was aghast at the pool of sheer emptiness

Struggling everyday to overcome the agony
I do numerous silly acts
but again, at the end of the day
I am haunted by your image
ur presence hallucinates me
but u slipped through my finger tips
and i couldn't hold you tight

Crippled by the malady u gifted me
i am learning to  live everyday
once…

Where the mind is without Fear

Image
WHERE the mind is without fear and the head is held high Where knowledge is free Where the world has not been broken up into fragments By narrow domestic walls Where words come out from the depth of truth Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit Where the mind is led forward by thee Into ever-widening thought and action Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake. -Rabindranath Tagore
 One of my favorite poems, which  has always inspired me to rise above the narrow lines that my dear brothers and sisters have created in the name of borders. The poem has always inspired me to learn more and more, which gives me an immense pleasure. UN Declaration of human rights has mentioned in Article 26 “Every one has right to education” But still, why many children are compelled to stay far away from the beam of education? This is what Malala Yousafza; a gallant, creative, beaut…

Lost in the darkness

Image
Night is in its height
the room is brutally dark and silent.
But still she can hear a loud noise,screeching and howling
she runs here and there,
her dresses are torn almost everywhere, hair seems uncombed for months

she looks pitiful, starving with hunger, trembling with the cold
Suddenly, he breaks huge laughter
 the sound echoes the whole room
again, she starts crying madly.

She is tied with chains like a dog
high dosed medicines have tranquilized her
she no longer cries, shouts or laughs.
she is lost in the darkness.

FOR YOUTHS OF TODAY

Image
In words of James” Youth is the joy, the little bird that has broken out of the eggs and is eagerly waiting to spread out its wings in the open sky of freedom and hope.”

Every day, I wake up with a new hope that this day is going to be special .With the same hope, I got up, when I removed my curtain, the twinkling rays of sun delights me and a cool breeze whispers me something “It’s your day”, I immediately flipped through the calendar, of course it’s my day, your day, it’s “International Youth Day”
Then, who is a youth?
According to Wikipedia, Youth is the time of life between childhood and adulthood (maturity), the age of discoveries and dreams.
Youth is the carrier of change; either it is big changes like the revolution or the small changes like change in the life-style. Youths are the ones who have got the zeal, passion, energy, power to create as well as destroy anything. They undertake the task of changing the face of the society. Conclusively, we can say that youth is the vang…

INTO THE WILD………..

Image
Outside the classroom into the outdoors

Away the chaos towards the warm couch of nature

I set up my journey with my tiny luggage

Wherever my GPS n clinometers leads me

But does it work every time? Hehe, nope

Plain to den, gorge to ridge, high to low

Ups n downs we kept on marching

Into the wild……….


Enemies all around, creating obstacles

Curly leech to treachery thorns

Swallowing marshy lands to scorching sun

Shattering rains to attacking ants

But we kept on marching

Into the wild……



Crossing the rivers, holding the trees

Walking for hours n enjoying the breeze

What a happiness; all the pains got seized
.
Every new turn awaits the surprise

I try to catch n it always rises.

Still we kept on marching

Into the wild….



Breath-taking scenes to heart touching views

I was lost in the mist without any clues

A hand to hold n smile to calm

all the pains n the wounds that got engraved.

And we kept on marching

Into the wild…..



Rabbits, monkeys, goats to dove

Invaluable smiles and all the pure love

Love and something like that......

I don’t know why but I feel that I should let him go. I must. He doesn’t deserve me. I just have long way to go… I can’t grab him n hide into my arms. I have no right to hold him tight when he will have wonderful life without me. I am feeling some kind of pain within me. Love is out of my capacity. It seems sweet and adorable beforehand but later turns out to be the bone stuck in the neck; u can neither swallow nor throw it out. Why should I? Everybody needs love. No, matter how loud you yell, how tough you seem to be but deep inside the core of your heart you dream of someone close to your heart. The one who makes you feel special, like you are the only girl in the world. The one who loves you the most, who trusts you, holds your hand tight whether it’s beautiful mustard farms or the tough path of life full of problems. I am really confused now. One says stay away while other pleads to hold his hand. But seriously speaking, falling in love is bliss as well as making one’s life more…

FALLING IN LOVE

Image
Today, I am feeling like a bird!
No restrictions... no boundaries
Clear blue sky and u beside
What else I could demand!



Puffy cloud, calm sun and smooth breeze
Surge of emotions filled my heart
Holding hands and you next to me
Oh heart please beat slowly
I m nervous

Am I ready?
Your embracement, my waxed heart melts
An unknown feeling run into my veins..
You are a tranquilizer, amor
Abandoning you is to suffer more!

Just hold me tight
Hide beneath you
Let me fall in your arms
My last breath…just for you!

A tale of two souls!

"I don't know anything, the only thing I know is: I love U"
that's how it started. His cupid darted right straight to her heart and she couldn’t escape! The wound was very deep but she wasn’t feeling any pain as if she was longing for it since long.
Aastha was a simple, young, energetic girl. She loved the way she was. Her friend’s said that she was quite cheerful, never afraid to stand up against anything wrong and very friendly! She was very bold kind of girl. It was very rare to see her sad and quite.
But like many of us, she had 2 faces; the one she was showing was strong, bold and happy while the hidden one was the sad, silent and fragile part of her deep within herself. As a normal teenager, she also wished for her prince charming that would hold her, embrace her and make her feel special. The guy who would accept her the way she is; both bold as well as fragile, silent, solitaire as well as gregarious. She was so complex yet simple. But all these feeling was l…

Struggling with myself!
