A shapeless clay that was moulded into a beautiful art,
Those imprecise words that now gives an inspiring speech,
Those black and white moments that brightened my future,
My success stories are forever indebted to you,
From helping me find my inner talent,
To showcase it confidently to the world,
You never gave up on me even when I lost my faith in myself,
The challenges you faced during a change in system,
You did not let it show during any of ur sessions
You made it seem like it was a cakewalk for you
But you slogged day and night to get the hang of the latest technology and open yourself to the digital world,
Like a parent  who is unbiased to all their children,
Now I know why you are referred to as our second parent,
Thank you for making me a better person,
Thank you for imbibing us with knowledge of science, art and technique,
Thank for imbibing us with knowledge of love and wisdom
Thank u for choosing to be a Teacher,
And change the lives on daily basis for betterment of the world.


She was just born when she was buried deep down,
After a day of lying still,
She cried out loud to be heard by the town,
The crowd gathered to witness the miracle,
They said she was guarded in the Mother Earth’s womb,
She grew 15 in an orphans world,
Then she was sent to a family for her care,
She was yet again thrown in a  dark dungeon,
To the beasts who charged their manhood every night,
No one to see her tears flowing down,
No loud cry was heard by the town,
She was a survivor she was told by many,
And a escape plan she laid down in a jiffy.
Now at 20 she held her head high,
The story of her survival was known to all,
She was a Survivor and an epitome of feminity,
Born from the soil and back to nature’s womb
She left behind a troop of survivors fostered under her wings

The Love Ballad of Earth and Rain

The Love Ballad of the Earth and Rain❤🌎🌧

When she is suffering from the scorching heat of the sun,
When she is sweating and anxiously waiting for a splash
Silently the love of her life comes and drenches her
Banishing her prolonged misery
The love ballad of the earth and rain is unspoken of, unheard of
The passionate love releases a beautiful fragrance,
The fragrance of love which heals the inner despair,
The trees witnessing their love dance in glee,
Along with the wind they perform a ballet,
The Sun slowly rises to have a glance,
The smile that surfaces is full of vibrant colours,
The blissful intimacy after a respite
Now had to end for them to survive
The earth couldn’t take much,
For it had it’s own limitations
The rain quietly drifted with a promise to be back again,
The Earth and Rain parted with beautiful memories,
The last showers that came witnessed the thunders and lighting,
They had arrived to take the him back with the same pomp and show,
When they came to drop him to his love
Rain rain it went away, fulfiling the desires of his dear life.

The Cradle

I lay wide awake staring at the empty cradle beside my bed,
Two little feet and tiny hands bid me goodbye in no time,
My eyes then gazing down at my flat belly,
That was protruding like a huge balloon sometime back,
‘She can’t conceive again’ I heard them say,
My whole world came crashing down with those words,
I wanted to scream until all my bones break,
I cursed every God in the universe,
For giving me this fateful life,
They say every cloud has silver lining,
The very next moment my cradle was filled with a cry,
A baby who was unknown of his mother’s death,
Was placed before me for a motherly love,
I now knew my motive in life,
I was chosen to be a Yashoda for this little Krishna,
My empty cradle was once again joyous from the cries of this little miracle,
Little feet and tiny hands held me tight,
To unfold the destiny of our lives hand in hand.



Age is just a number
The white hair is just a colour

You still have a strong body
To lift the burden of an entire family
You still get up at 7 in the morning
And work till late in the evening
Your BP numbers are definitely high
But you just don’t show any stressful signs
The money that you make is never for you
For your happiness lies in giving us the entire share
You never held my hand and made me walk
You always allowed me to fall and get up with a bang
The whipping from the cane was not easy for you
To stop that tear from flowing out was unseen by all
For our betterment you took many harsh steps
But silently u were weeping while u slept
The memories of listening to the old music in the dawn
Will remain etched forever till I’m gone
Let me thank you today for the sacrifices you made
Let me tell you sorry for being so late
Let me fulfill all your wrapped wishes
Calm down now , Slow down now
Take a little rest, spend your time in you little nest
Allow me to share the burden and take your journey ahead
Bless me to be as strong as you
And love my family as selflessly as you.



The two red lines on her kit
Glowed her face a little bit
Sadness crept in no time
When she remembered his cries
The two red lines made her think
About the memories that vanished in a blink
Happy for the current phase
But the child will never see his fathers face
The two red lines made her strong
Coz he said
Even if I’m gone for long
U are a wife of a man
Whose body will be wrapped with a mothers cloth
The Flag of the nation who many strive to hold
I’ll be wearing around my body like a gold
The two red lines made her a mother
She will finally have someone to make her life smoother
A wife of soldier she will always remember
And she will raise a child
Worthy of the nation.

True love ❤

There she stood in her red wine dress
Her hair tied in a messy bun
She stood tall like a goddess of love
Her dress wrapped across her body
Adorning her beautiful curves
She gracefully turned towards d crowd
My eyes fixed on her, gazing at her every move
She suddenly found me and her lips formed a curve
I stood there still while she approached to give me a hug
Wait, why are my senses betraying me now
Why was I acting with fear
I need to grip her tight before she vanishes among the masses
I haven’t slept a single day from the time I met her first
She walked past me in a temple tat was managing a heavenly feast
I wasn’t sure what it was I was fifteen and a young lad then
Today that I m 30 and i know d definition of love
I want to grab her and make her mine
I immediately walked to her and touched her soft skin
Pulled her away taking her to the backyard
She was scared and shivering unknown to my deeds
And I gently placed my hands on her cheek to rub a tear away
I kneeled down and said I love u
She held my shoulders and made me stand
Then she gently unhooked her front button exposing her cleavage
She slightly pushed her dress aside to show a Tattoo that had my name
What m I dreaming,
All these years I thought to end my one sided love
And here she stood with my name inked on her skin
The pain of those needles gives me shivers
I gently placed a kiss on her nude gentle skin
I cover her up hooking her buttons
Holding her in my arms I chose to be her forever
My lips immediately found it’s way to her gentle soft pink lips
In seconds we were lost in our Loveland
Back into the crowd we walk again
Stealing glances at each other over and over again
Few days of courtship we declared our love
And in the same temple we are married with great pomp and show
True love always has won and the wait has ended with more love
I share her body along with mine
Two bodies , two souls have finally become one

The Broken Soul

You are like a mystery
Trapped in your own history
Your smiles are not real
You have a dark story which you fear
You seem to be normal
But your soul is shaken
The glasses that cover your eyes
Are moist with your cries
Your life is in a turmoil
You are sinking towards a dark tunnel
Time will heal everything they say
But memories and nightmares stay
The heart that was filled with love and happiness
Is now a hollow room, full of emptiness
Your only wish has now come true
The colour of your favorite sheets
Has put you in state of tranquil
The fragrance of the roses
Has taken you away from all miseries
You will now sleep in peace
The peace that you have always deared
The pain that you endured all through
Has finally bid you goodbye
And on the other side you are happy and glee once again
Without any cries.

Recovery during Crisis

You cried all through the years
But none could hear
You were in constant fear
Coz the end was near
The fear was not your end
But your children
There was no ways to mend
But only to watch till the end
The end would heal your body
But your soul would depart
With your children’s dead bodies
Why was it necessary to be so nice
When we did not respect you in due time
Why did you give us so much
When we could not give you
A loving touch
You deserved better Maa
The earth you created for your children
Could never be Yours
A lesson was what we needed
And healing is what you desired
Now we get a balance of both
Sorry to Mother Earth

Quarantine Family

Quarantine mode is on
The house is stacked with groceries in tonnes
The economy has fallen
But the love for family has risen
The maids are absent
With no assistance
But the family showed it’s presence
Cooking and washing was never so much fun
For breakfast my son
Prepared some buns
Chatting the whole day
We realized there was so much to say
Beds that were meant just to lay
Became a place to be happy and gay
We pray to Lord for things to be fine
But secretly we want this never ending
Family time
