A Walk With You!

Photograph by Deshpreet Singh Vaid

"You are a writer. What would you write for me?" She asked.
"And, why would I write for you?" I questioned.
She stood struck and surprised as what I asked. I moved by, leaving the girl standing behind. I would never write for anyone unless I really wanted to. For business, it could be a different thing: but personally, it was all different. 

In the later days, I met many people. Some questioned me about my identity while some didn't really care about who I was. The second category of the people simply talked, and I was comfortable dealing with them. The moment when you are in a sense of freedom and no one intervenes your zone, that is indeed a special feeling. 

"Writers need to breathe!" I said to myself and kept my eyes engrossed at the clock's tic-tic. I loved to hear the sound the clock made. I liked seeing my life so much defined. Every moment of that peaceful hour was getting identified. It felt as if my soul could kiss every particle of the wind, relish every drop of water and sing in the tunes of the Koel. And instantly my mind stuck to the game a girl played. The girl whom I gave my heart once. She would count the Mynah's every time when she saw any one of them. In her thoughtfulness or superstition, if she saw three of them, it would mean a good omen. 

The mind filters moments and brings back the best ones to you. While you lay looking for peace in the blankness of the roads and in the softness of the flowers. Getting the treat from them, you are capable enough to stay sane in this big-big world. On a daily basis, you find traffic on the roads, someone trying to draw you down, but no, nothing of them fail you as a person. Because you are secure. The time you spend with yourself secures you. 

At last, I would like to say that it feels really good to be with yourself. Getting so much close to either one or many people at once can make you the happiest, but preparing yourself to accept that happiness, somewhere you have to walk alone with yourself.

Thoughts on myself, a learner

I could never wear the mask of what I wasn't. Whatever I was, I was the most happy in being that!

I would definitely try to be a better person, when it comes to organising, managing my tasks. I love to exercise to get my physique in shape, I love to spend time with the kids whom I teach on weekends sometimes. I feel that the pressure at work of the whole week gets dissolved when those little kids smile back at me. I feel a small walk while the sun is up, gives me the greatest peace. To find my grandmother waiting for me everyday, gives me reason enough to consider myself the luckiest!

There are small joys that make me human, and act humanly. Otherwise, I might have been a negative person, someone not understanding the meaning of myself, my life. I wish to reach heights, but with this journey, that I can call mine. 

I don't want to cheat on someone. While at work, I want to be smart. I am learning, that makes me happy enough!

never take away

Stars twinkle, so do your eyes.
My heart considers you dearly,
dear love of my life.
We move different paths,
share stories of melancholy and warmth.
You call me a solo traveler,
while I call you my dream love.
While not staying in touch,
I can feel your presence around me.
While not sharing your touch,
I can feel complete.
On learning that our dispositions are different,
You walk miles, 
without letting me know even once,
and I sit thinking we formed a great couple.
While you leave today,
still I am here considering you my lover!
Because what heart could match,
neither you nor I could ever take away.

August Written Works

There are those times in life when you can't say but only feel. This is one such situation. The point is that I am thinking too much but then what can I do? When it's the fault in my stars!


Removing the covers of madness from her face, she felt the cold breeze making its space in the deepest corner of her heart. To the world she was a comedian but this comedian needed the moments of peaceful embrace too. She liked silence, away from the showbiz, those cheers and buzz of the crowd that greeted her every time. 
This was the time when she was her true self, the one which she only knew.

"It is difficult mom," said a 10 year old boy.
"That’s why you need to win it,” answered the mother.
“But it needs hard work mom.”
“And you will do it.”
As the mother said these lines the boy’s confidence reached the seventh sky.
Years later he was on the television winning for his Nation at a global sporting event. 
He could thank his supporters, friends, relatives but the push he had received from him mother in childhood, had made all the difference. 
It was difficult but the experience was worth it. 

“Be positive and the let sky be the limit for you!”


"In one room seven children lived together with parents in childhood.
Years later, 7 houses, but no room for the aged parents."
.. inspired from Baghban film and the reality I see!


"Why are you after my life, when I smoke? That's my choice afterall."
He said to his beloved.
She fell silent, moving to a corner yet another time.
"See.. just don't ask me not to smoke. Say anything else." He said to her.
"You know I wouldn't have tried to stop you. But I remember that day, when you hated your father for smoking.. drinking and what not!? You had never wanted to follow his footsteps. You had not promised this to me but yourself. But today..what do I see? You know, this is what hurts me. The person whom I loved, is not the same person anymore."

They fell silent. Life had closed another chapter! He couldn't leave cigarette, but her. Her fears had been real.


"What is your stress-buster?", asked one man to the other.
"The photographs of my son and daughter. When I see them happy I am at peace." The other man replied. 
"What is your stress-buster? Tell me."
"My written works!" The man said.
The first man to answer was an old man whose children separated from him once they were married.
The second man was a writer who found happiness in spending time with what he loved the most.


You are my light, you are my day and night.
Passion, your face is both intriguing yet challenging.
You are the most beautiful and fulfilling,
In the truest light. Adding colours of roughness and wisdom to my life so bright.
You are my day and night.


Appreciate the nature; it has the power to redefine your perspectives; to help you live through its beauty, to walk past the gentleness of life.


You might have fallen in love, but the day you start rising in love, you start feeling how beautiful an emotion love is!


You might be living a happy life, but until and unless there is the light or motivation of the special ’body’, you can’t live fully. That special body can be a passion you are following or a person closer to you. You need to keep meeting with that body, through the sing-songs of the day and night. You have to meet yourself, by meeting the ‘body’ to feel complete.


I am as honest to you, as you are to me. At last, what matters is, we want to be free.


Your eyes rendered magic to mine, no wonder I too smile. 


The songs buzzed in his ears and his heart sang once again to the times spent with her.


When there is no fear, there is art.
