Dream Effectively

Old habits die hard. We keep slipping into our oh-so-cosy yet so-so-cagey comfort zone. Despite knowing that they are detrimental to our well being, we can hardly come over the craving for one more cigarette, one more drink, one more hour of sleep, one more day of laziness and one […]

2017 : The Beginning

One more leaf is turned, with the stroke of twelve at midnight, 2017 rolled out on a happy note. Re-connecting and reconciliation may be theme of the year, as it began in a slow yet content tone. May be it is time to put the past behind, forgive and forget […]

दफन

ज़मीन से कुछ फ़ीट नीचे दफन हैं साँसें… हर कोशिश मिट्टी के ढेले मुंह में भर जाती है… नासिका साथ छोड़ चुकी.. उसके पुटों में गहरे जाले हैं… हाथों में हरकत नहीं… पाँव बेड़ियों में उलझे.. सच पूछो तो तन, मन का आवरण है केवल… जब मन ही टूट जाए […]
