Ensorcelled by juvenility.

Ensorcelled by juvenility.

I remember the time, The time when I didn't even know what is a rhyme. I cartwheeled in the widespread field, Oblivious to my wounds that were still unhealed. Singing out of tune with birds creating a melody, Who knew then the song will only be a memory. Tying a rope to the branch I made my toy, Warm breeze against my skin made me a happy boy. Pamper me is all what she did, my mamma. From one couch to the other I jumped to escape lava. Reminiscing my childhood seems such a felony, For I've an exam tomorrow and it's all just a memory.🌸 ...

His Last Siesta.

His Last Siesta.

​Ages later we met again. Weathered by the tides of time, Flavoured with experiences wild. Countless memories reminisced, From the days we stole mangoes To the late bleary party nights! Everyone who we knew became a memory,  But you and I were never part of history. You were the one who eased my life, Especially when I had fought my wife. But oh, my bosom bud,  Parting our ways was a tough call, Forsooth, the toughest that I recall. If I knew this would happen I'd never let you go. Decades of our love now lost in vain, For I wasn't there to wake you from your last siesta....

What is a religion?

What is a religion?

Growing up in a religious family as an atheist has always been queer. But as time passed I learnt how to not offend the views of a person to whom religion & God is a source of lifestyle. In our current time the estimated number of religions is known to be 4,300. Each of them have a different history to our beginning and different set of Gods who govern the universe. Though I'm not someone who believes or follows any religion, I'm always intrigued by them. Think about it, the people who started religions were indeed very smart for their times. Religion was born to teach us life lessons, to literate us as to be capable to act in situations we haven't been in but might face them in later stages of our life.  These scholarly men, who started religions, even laid down rules and regulations for their followers to lead a life. To make sense in simple words, they made their fraternities...

What paradise do you believe in?

What paradise do you believe in?

​The world everywhere was sombre, Still the mystical Paradise stood un-affected. Enclosing within it calmness and protection from all the sins. Bits of his vehemence broke with every step he took. He didn't stop, since he knew his only chance lay ahead of him, the Paradise. He didn't stop struggling through the modern desert, the work mountains and the concrete jungle, hiding as a prey from animus, envy, and malice even from the ones he thought were his allies. He didn't stop, since he knew no one in the grim world was selfless enough to provide a helping hand.  He didn't stop, because he knew his world was driven by madmen. A world blinded by avarice. Aeons later when he reached the gateways of the Paradise, it was too late to enter. Too tiresome to take the final step, but he did make it. The moment he entered the Paradise, the mirage blew away, no evil thought could reach his soul, no broken promise could make his heart ache nor could...

Why does happiness play hide and seek in our lives?

Why does happiness play hide and seek in our lives?

After waking up this Sunday morning, I decided to dig in my nutella jar but found it to be almost empty. Which made me a little upset but then I wondered why happy moments in our life don't stay forever. Funny how an empty nutella jar triggered such a deep thought in my mind. But yes, if we all give a flashback on our lives, there's always some moments which we wish to change. Which we wish never had happened or if we could erase them from our memories. It hurts me to admit but it's indeed a fact that these embarrassing or hurtful memories are the most vital ones in our lives. The lack of happiness in those moments ignites our passion to be happier, to work harder and to get better.  Better, the word itself means to improve. The moment you claim a moment of your life to be the best, you ultimately say you won't get any better in...

How long will you be a passerby, tell me who am I!

How long will you be a passerby, tell me who am I!

​I reside in those lost places that you've forgotten the path to.  I'm that dying flame which you couldn't save. I'm the one who's always been with you, yet you never cared enough to sense my presence. I've seen every step you took,  from those trembling crawls to the hasty scoots. Be it the first time you cried over a balloon you couldn't get, Or the 7th grade crush who you could never forget. Over the years we grew,  together in our own worlds but you never knew. Why don't you still see? Break the bounds and rescue me, For 'tis true that I'm a dying flame. Residing in a lost place that you couldn't name. But you're not the one that I blame,  My anonymity is my greatest shame....

Hello darkness, my old friend.

Hello darkness, my old friend.

It's a summer night, your Wi-Fi & A/C are working good. Your laptop and mobile are low on battery but you're ever so thankful to your charger. - But what if, right now, there's a blackout with no definite guarantee to come back any time soon? ("But we've a generator, Ashutosh!" Imagine it isn't working too.) What would you do? Sit alone in the room and wait for it come back like a vampire waiting for night to come? Then why not use this time to do things that you can't do when you're busy with your work! This summer when there was a blackout in our city due to a huge short-circuit in a transformer, that's exactly what I wanted to do but my lazy limbs didn't wish to walk. If it wasn't my grandma, who had come to visit us, to drop her glasses "accidentally" out of the window, maybe I wouldn't even be writing this blog. After forcing me out of the house it...

The Value Of Appreciation.

The Value Of Appreciation.

Once when I was returning late back home after a long day, I came across a pet dog in my neighborhood who kept barking randomly at strangers. It was a German Shepherd, and probably an adult. It's vicious teeth scared many and forced pedestrians to keep as much distance as they could. That night when I reached home, I casually brought up this topic at dinner. My cousin, who grew up with dogs told me about dog's behaviour being similar to humans.  "A dog is often like your child. If you keep criticizing it, reprimanding his doings and not even let him out for a walk, what do you expect him to turn into? A joyful buddy who'll cheer you when you're sad? That won't happen unless you give him the equal amount of joy. You see, appreciation and love is the key to spread joy." Back then, none of my kin gave it another thought. But today, when I received a...

We welcome Spidey with a Homecoming.

We welcome Spidey with a Homecoming.

The most awaited movie for Spidey fans, has finally let us have a sneak peak with an official trailer! After waiting for decades to see our young superhero join forces with the "Mighty Avengers", the first installment of the movie comes with the story of his journey to get working with them to save  earth. The trailer was something worth making us look forward for the movie with Robert Downey Jr.(Tony Stark) guiding Tom Holland(Peter/Spiderman) on what to do and what not to do in his unique style.  As a comic reader the Little Upgrade to Spidey's suit has been a real hype! To see the new suit with some old school features in a live action movie is the greatest gift to us from the movie makers. The image is a still from the first official trailer, where Spidey is seen saving a ship from breaking apart and the Lady Liberty in the back amidst the smoke. It's going to be...

Today, you fly higher!

Today, you fly higher!

​The life I live is the toughest. Isn't this the same thought you have before going to bed on a bad day?  Everyone lives a different lifestyle, have been raised by parents other than yours and even have different opinions from each other. But that doesn't mean that our lives are any better or worse as compared to that of others. "Nothing's new under the sun", they say, which is indeed the truest line of all. In the last 200,000 years since modern humans have existed, we've always got better at learning things the hard way. We're a species who always make mistakes before learning something. That's how we are, that's how everybody you know is. Stop giving your life a hard time by judging it with someone else's who has a great instagram profile that makes you think they're cool. Of course one might be cool, but that doesn't mean their life is flawless, or even if it is, it is...
