Funeral Pyre

N: B: As of now more than 210,000 people have succumbed to Covid-19 as per government data. But the graveyard speaks entirely a different number. If all of us including the administration would have been careful then perhaps, we wouldn’t be seeing this picture. In this difficult time doctors and other frontline health workers’ as well as many selfless people’s continuous work helping many to survive. And that is the Hope I see. Compassion and kindness making us humane and alive. Let’s continue to be…

An Ode to the Sari — myjourneyasacreativewriter

An Ode to the Sari -to six yards of grace n elegance -to accommodating every size ‘n’ shape -to the versatility of the unstitched wonder -to its cinching all women into hour glass figures -to sculpturing sexy silhouettes -‘n’ to preserving modesty ‘n’ decorum with safety pins … -to showing little ‘n’ leaving more […]

Spell

Thousands of words
Buried under your spells-
Trying to escape,
Trying to make meaning.
But the songs couldn’t be sung
&
Symphonies couldn’t be created
Just because
All are caught up in your cacophony.
Pressed under the reeds of the piano,
Tunes are suppressed,
&
Rhythms are bewitched.
Please set them free,
Please spare them!
Let the freedom ring
Let the rhythms have its blues
Let the songs be sung
Let the symphonies be created.

Patriot

I wish I could be a patriot
Just like Nathuram
Kill all those,
who talk about love and equality
Kill those Mahatmas,
who fast to save people
It would be then easy for me
to
fight for the nation
Protect my nation
from outsiders and insiders,
who love the people across the border.
I wish I could be a patriot
Just like Nathuram
Shoot the bullet on their chest
One for love,
one for equality
and
one for fraternity.
My nation is my first priority
I will kill all the population
If, they will not love my country
Not food, not house, not cloth
But the love for my country supersedes everything.
I might die out of hunger on roadside naked
But I will die peacefully
if there is at least one person
Who truly love my country and that is me.
I wish I could.

War

Word of war
Loved and understood by few
Indiscriminate killing occurs
Whether its black or Jew.
Death it suffers
So suffers the living
Loved one die here
On the expense of a few thriving.
Who wins in a war?
Who loses it?
Does it matter at all
When the innocent wiped by it.
A soldier dies
So does his family
But here the warmongers
Play politics so happily.
Are we so foolish?
Are we so blind?
Want to end the world
So our fellow mankind.
There is always a conflict
A reason to fight
War begets a war
But Love restores humanity.
Let’s stop this cacophony
This hate speech of war
This is not funny
This is just bloody war.

Moon

When you stand with me
In that night
I saw the moon
Alone in that vast sky
Covered by clouds
Still bright
Undaunted
Spreading light
Falling on me
Enthralled that I am
Again and again
I stared
I saw
The Moon
In that night
As glorious
As beautiful
As bright
In that moonlit night

Let’s Kill Mahatma

I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.
                                                                                                      Mahatma Gandhi

Let’s kill Mahatma

Who,
couldn’t be killed by Britishers
couldn’t be stopped by Ambedkar
Let’s kill him
Why?
Because he is Mahatma for Tagore,
cunning Bania for Ambedkar,
and half-naked fakir for Churchill.
He shouldn’t live.
How dare he preach non-violence,
lead the freedom struggle!
and made the partition peaceful in Bengal,
Who is he
to declare shudra’s to be Harijan,
and preach to us equality!
How can he preach us to be truthful, merciful,
and ask the rich to distribute their wealth!
How dare he, ask us to sacrifice
even at the face of death!
He deserves to die.
So what if Britishers couldn’t even force or kill him!
and the continuous protest through fasting
couldn’t make him die!
We are Indian, we can kill him
We have helped in the killing of
Rani Laxmi Bai and Prithviraj Chouhan.
Because of us, Britishers could rule us,
Muslim invasion could happen.
Then who is this Mahatma to stop us?
Let’s kill him
Let’s kill the idea of Mahatma forever
Because there shouldn’t be truth & mercy
There shouldn’t be peace and resistance
against oppression
There should be only
Jaichand, Ganpat Rao, & Mir Jafar
For that
Let’s kill Mahatma…

Just One Day

It’s just one day
Still, heart searches you
The unfair game of uncertainty
Played its cruel joke.
And now I am longing.
Without being in the game
I felt as if I could have won.
I may not have.
But the hope and heart
Still says
This is just one day
In many
Will, you wait,
Or,
Is this just one day?
