If someone asked me, “A penny for your thought”
I’ll tell him, “Sorry! It can’t be bought”
The thought process runs like a train
Fed by emotions and nurtured by the brain

Said Swami Vivekananda, “Thoughts have made us what we are”
“Words are secondary,...Read More

"I'm going to examine you today,"
he said.

He had no stethoscope, notebook,
or pen on his hands. He wore a long,
white robe. Sandals took the place
of shoes.

"I'll examine your brain, a few moments
from now....."

I wondered how he would do it;
there was no...Read More

Paradise Now
All you need is one word,
Erase just one word
from the minds of the people,
Rout out just one idea, one concept,
Eliminate 'Religion' from 
the dictionary of mankind--
Man's stupendous and
gravest faux pas!

And, you'll see peace,
happiness, brotherhood;
There won't then be any infidels,
No gentiles,...Read More

Your silence screams
Your silence screams,
collides against walls
and falls down shattered,
igniting my consciousness.

My soul is naked now,
witnessing its destitution,
the cruelty of your heart
and brutality of your soul.

You had left me lonely
in this vast endless universe
to starve, 
to die unheard and unnoticed.

My soul is...Read More

When silence seeps inside
When silence seeps inside me

When silence seeps inside me,
your countenance appears before my eyes.

When silence starts dancing in me,
you ooze in my heart
and caress my soul.

When silence transports me 
to the sky of consciousness,
you spring in my being.
Then we get...Read More

Unlived Life
Unlived Life

Remained lost in the web of relationships,
kept running here and there in crowd,
kept shouting in market
to buy something,
or sometimes, to sell something.
Ultimately I myself remained
being sold in this world
from one corner to another.

Though I was 
in the effort to...Read More

A Clown, A Coquette and A Cleric
