एक तितली की उड़ान

Taking a stand for your passions is not easy. Despite that, there are people who do not bow down in front of what life brought their way and instead pursue their passions relentlessly. This poem is dedicated to all such people 🙂

City lights

I took a cab ride to see a friend today and ended up gazing far too long at the lit windows of the buildings on my way. The thought that behind every window is probably a person with a life as complex as my own moved me and I had to write it down, so I did. The word for this realisation is ‘sonder’.

Ship of Theseus

Ship of Theseus is a dilemma of identity that raises the following question: If all the parts of a ship have been replaced, does it still remain the same ship?

Prochnost: a tribute

“.. during all the years until 1961, not only was I convinced I should never see a single line of mine in print in my lifetime, but, also, I scarcely dared allow any of my close acquaintances to read anything I had written because I feared this would become known.” – Solzhenitsyn Continue reading “Prochnost: a tribute”

Tiptoe

She began to crawl and she began to cruise
and she learned to utter ‘yes’ and ‘no’,
But no one remembers just when that baby girl
actually began to tiptoe. Continue reading “Tiptoe”

Project Prochnost: Week 8

One of those moments in life when you think you got it under control but you don’t. At the outset, I felt that this one project is going to be my personal path to discipline but then life happened. I was unable to give as much time as I would have liked to devote to my Russian practice this week. Continue reading “Project Prochnost: Week 8”

नूर

The moon has no light of its own and merely reflects sunlight while the stars we see have their own lights. Still, the world celebrates the moon owing to its bigger size as compared to the twinkling stars. Sometimes, this happens with people too. Continue reading “नूर”

Reverse Evolution 1.0

Recently, I read about an interesting phenomenon. Imagine that you are offered a gold coin right now or two gold coins tomorrow. What would you pick? Most of us would pick two coins later and for good reason. Continue reading “Reverse Evolution 1.0”

Interpretations

A week ago, an idea got stuck in my head. The Ship of Theseus. The paradox of the Ship of Theseus. The more I thought of it, the crazier it drove me. Eventually, I wrote a poem about it. All that ran in my head at that time was writing about this age-old dilemma that has perplexed so many writers before me and will continue doing so for generations to come.

Nest of Sunshine

I just had a lovely weekend in the hills, so it’s only natural that I write about it which I did. The wonderful array of shades in which the sunshine interacted with the hills made me feel as if the sunshine finds her favored home in the hills and only visits us elsewhere out of obligation 🙂

Amidst the roars of silence
my heart perches
the nest of sunshine.

Project Prochnost: Week 7

There is one term for the past week and it is all that. No literally, it is ‘all that’. I did some fresh writing and some progress on a couple other goals alongside ProchnostContinue reading “Project Prochnost: Week 7”
