Half the child I used to be

zen-pencils-unremarkable

There was a time in our life when anything was possible, when we young we were little bits of everything, we were poets; we were dancers; we were musicians; we were explorers but now I wonder growing up is the process of giving it up one by one. The whole world was nowhere but around the place we live and in the proximity of our friends. The destiny was never in the future but always lied in our tiny hands and yet how ignorant were we.

We depended on our parents for everything we wanted; we observed them day and night thinking that it was normal. In our small little world our thought were limitless; our discoveries were unmatchable; our explorations were beyond awe; rain was music to our ears but this was not the reality as we were told innumerably. That magnificent looking tree was nothing but wood; a sunset was nothing but 6 in the evening; stars was nothing but burning mass and many countless little things we don’t even remember now.

The reality took the meaning of being a child from the childhood and slowly and steadily we grew in the same reality field that our parents, teachers put us into years ago and I will not blame them for it probably they may have seen enough in their life to waste time in being a child.

Still I look back and think of all the things I would have done; all the things I would have explored if this reality word had come later. And I know that the best and most wonderful things that happened in my life is because of this thirst of wonder.

Try to live as you want than you should.

I am mine || poetry #1

Buddha_utsav (1)

I stand alone
I got people beside me
I am different
Many people do think like me
I will make my way
To rule one more day.

Pretend, it makes me happy
I will not change any directions
I will not change my mind
But I will be a better person
I am mine.

I scream till I lose my breath
Go around the world
Show me some happiness so I can distribute
In a box, so fragile

But how much difference will it make?

Time Flies

1Untitled-600x373

I vividly remembers the time when I and my cousin and my parents and his parents and some guests visited his farmhouse. It was a jovial get together and an opportunity laid in front of us to know more about each other. I was in school and he was about to go to college. The trip ended soon and we did enjoy that trip to his farmhouse but individually, however just to please each other we agreed to come for a trek after a few months. Now 8 years have gone by and we hardly talked (forget about the trek we planned).”  

We all come across situations in life where we usually take our closest friends, people we love, our relatives for granted. It is usually not that we do not care for them but we hardly take time to show our care towards them. I am starting to realize the importance of people and family in one’s life because someone aptly said “When you grow older you remember the people you knew when you were younger”.

Nothing matters more in life than to know that someone cares for you; loves you and sometimes in order to make them feel this way one has to show that care. Just knowing that life is short and I need to live every moment with thrill and pleasure, it gives me enough courage to step out of my comfort and do the things that matters most.

Hope you live the life you are proud of; hope you feel the things you never felt before; hope you make the most of your time.

I wish you were not dead || fifty-word stories #2

She was playing alone on a vibrant autumn afternoon beside the swing where she saw him last. He came from behind unnoticed. She grinned; he chuckled; both looked happy. She knew exactly why he had come to her. They strolled and lastly she said “I wish you were not dead”.


Here is my fifty-word story. Not five thousand, not five hundred, but precisely fifty words.

In the dark || fifty-word stories #1

He was strolling in the darkest autumn night; surrounded by mature deodar trees and winds gushing through the streets. He never experienced his heart pound with such heavy bursts. Heavy breathing clearly evident from a distance. His mind unable to comprehend the situation. A soft voice exclaims “It is Fear”.
