The Great Indian Litterbug

I am the litterbug. My physical appearance may not justify the bug but my habits match completely. I belong to a super species of bugs. I have a mind to judge the right from the wrong and good from the bad however, I restrict these judgments for my personal agendas.

This is an ode to the great Indian litterbug...


 I am the one who takes pleasure 
Watering all around,
Garnishing the roads with garbage, he owns.

I talk about cleanliness
I Pee outside the loo.
I care not about what you rant
A guy has got to do 
To save his pants.
I see no fence I see no wall
Just can’t ignore the nature when the nature calls.

A letter To the Forgotten 'I'

Dear Me,

While growing up you had developed so many interests. I remember how you would doodle on the hemline of your dress. How each page on the rough notebook had a pattern or face drawn. How your favorite gift used to be crayons, paints and palettes. Long time since the hands held those brushes or the crayons. I tried keeping up with your interest but daily chores and life took up the time. Sometime back we had tried to live with the color and paper but with regret, I say I fumbled again.

Solitude: Rendezvous between Soul and Body

Call it the irony of life that most people find themselves alone when encircled in a crowd. The more you rise in life lesser gets the number of close friends and accomplice rise. The richness of togetherness losses its charms when there are more formal parties than casual get together. At such cross roads of life there happens to be one friend. That is solitude.

There are times when I do not wish to speak
There are moments I rather keep my ears close.
It’s when the world seems senseless;
Everything about life appears worthless.
What people preach are mere words
Each sentence stings; each note appears a sword.

At that moment, one thing helps
Peep a little inside yourself. 
Find a little privacy 
Where only your soul you should see.

Waiting for The One Far Away!



It has been days since I slept
My eyes stay wide open
No dreams have yet crept.
My heart yearns for him
He is off shore.
No pill no doc can find a cure.

For the first time 
We are apart.
My soul is restless
My heart is beating hard.
I am sad 
Make me glad
Send him back soon
I cry to the moon.

Writing Resolutions

courtesy - www.winghill.com
It has been quite a while since I have made resolutions. Actually this ’while’ counts in years. However this year I wish to (I have not resolved yet) share at least three posts a week. I am on track until now. Considering my previous record of accomplishment(barely seventy five posts), I will break even with previous years publishing this year if I post with the same fervor. Therefore, I desire a century posting this year. I also intend to read more blogs and be more openhanded in leaving a comment contrary to just pressing that like button.

Let us see how everything fits in…

Fingers Crossed!
