Did You Say Hi?

Did you say hi to me?

Did you nod your head and ask how was your day?

Did you ask me for lunch?

Did you play with me?

You seemed to be in a happy mood today

And let’s hope that forever you shall be.



What I Never Thought.

What I never thought,

That the day could be so long.

I never thought,

That like my childhood days,

Ma would give me a glass of milk and say “Today, I got up late so, I couldn’t make any good tiffin, so drink up the glass of milk.”

I never thought,

That my favourite serial would be back on television.

I never thought,

That earning money could be so hard.

Even when one is able, earning a dollop of money is like eating nuts and bolts for breakfast.

What I never thought,

That today,

I would have a sumptuos meal.

What I never thought,

That the sky would be blue again,

Lessening the pain,

To let us revive again.

What I never thought,

That after the sumptuos meal,

Ma would tell me a beautiful story,

In which there wouldn’t be anything which isn’t good and happy.



On The Earth.

On the Earth.

On the Earth,

Is the igloo,

Where true ice men live.

These are men and women who survive in such chilling weather,

That to think about it, makes one say “No, never, better not.”

On the Earth,

There are parakeets, mynahs, macaws, sparrows who travel around the world,

Much unknown to the human lot.

They see, they learn,

And it is God’s grace upon them which helps them to be ever going.

On the Earth,

There are games,

Such as football, cricket, basketball, hockey, chess , ludo and carrom.

Chess is linked with intelligence, ludo with luck, cricket with strength and football with fame.

On the Earth,

There are various dishes well and known,

Made by chefs,

Who are a class apart,

But out of all of these,

The food made by Ma is the best.

On The Earth,

Are false things,

Which confound the very basics of humanity.

And on Earth,

Is God,

Whom we love the most.


Discovering The Light.

Discovering The Light.

Discovering the light,

Seems a new dimension,

To the eyes,

Which see and search for the right light.

Upon finding a new light,

The world glows up.

It’s not the world “in which we live”,

But the world where one tries to live.

Every step is our attempt to be.

Discovering a light,

Be it of any colour,

Red, green, yellow or blue,

It brings in excitement,

Happiness, new enthusiasm.

It is truly a beauty in sight.
