His Silence!

She came into the room, wanting to have a word with him. He was standing in the Balcony. It was night time, and had already started getting quieter. As quieter as it could get in a city. He was looking at the sky, or may be somewhere beyond the sky. She couldn't guess. May be [...]

Warmth

A friend with whom our meet ups were not happening for a long time, remarked casually - Just a casual remark - "Your new house is not feeling very warm to me!" I invited her, to give it a chance, as I particularly feel that it has a lot of Sunshine and warmth as well, [...]

She!

She had started living her life now. She knew it. She was just living for the sake of her heart, only that. And then, a phone call from a close relative - Oh, I hope you are taking care of your family! It sent her thinking. What was this thing about girls taking care of [...]

The dialogue

She was working in the kitchen, almost done with the cooking and winding up. She looked a bit tense, a bit worried, absorbed in her own thoughts, while some work needed to be done, and she was doing the work nonetheless. I was observing her from a distance. First I thought I must let her [...]

Keeping kids healthy!

Naari

नारी   वो निकली घर से बाहर, अपने लिए, तो सुना उसने कुछ, “ये कैसे कर सकती हो तुम”, “घर पर ही रहो” “घर कौन देखेगा” “शर्म नहीं है क्या” “दिमाग तो ठिकाने है ना”   पर जैसे कि ये सब अब उसके लिए वो थे, काला अक्षर भैंस बराबर ! उसके कान पर जूँ [...]

Kuch Panktiyaan

कुछ पंक्तियाँ - (विनती- थोड़े से नमक के साथ पढ़ें ) जब पूछती हैं सखियाँ, आज बड़ी फ्रेश लग रही हो, तो कह देती हूँ, कि नहा के आयी हूँ, इसलिए ! और हँस देती हूँ !   कैसे समझाऊँ उन्हें, कि तुम्हारी खुशबू है, जो महका के रखती है !   वैसे पानी की [...]

वो टूटती ‘पक्की’ ज़मीन

आज सुबह ज़रा मौसम का मज़ा ले रही थी, ज़रा ओस से नम हुई घास को अपने नंगे पैरों से सहला रही थी, तो यकायक नज़र पड़ी, एक तरफ की ज़मीन पर !   पक्की ज़मीन थी, हम इंसानों ने उस पर पक्केपन का भेष चढ़ा दिया था, और साथ ही दिखा, ये मोटे तने [...]

That Discomfort…

There was a feeling of being off centred. Yes, she was sure about that. She was sure, something was not right. What did she do, or not do? She began to scan internally? What happened that this disharmony inside manifested itself? She was feeling vicious. She was feeling that she wasn't behaving rightly. She was [...]

क्या माँगू, तेरे लिए !

  ऐ मेरे प्यारे, मैं तेरे लिए क्या माँगू? अगर केवल सुख सुविधा माँगू, तो जानती हूँ की आतंरिक संतुष्टि के लिए तू फिर भी तड़पेगा!   तो सोचती हूँ, कि तेरे लिए माँगू उससे नज़दीकी, तेरी खुद से नज़दीकी !   और सोचती हूँ, कि तेरे लिए माँगू, ऐसी चुनौतियाँ, तो तुझे अपने पिंजरे [...]

Ek naya sprout

आज सुबह उठी, तो मन किया ज़रा पेड़ पौधों के पास बैठूँ, उन्हें निहारूँ,   तो गयी बालकनी में, वहाँ रखे गमलों और उनमें से निकलती कोंपलों के दर्शन किये   एक गमले पर नज़र गयी अटक, उसमें एक छोटी सी कोंपल रही थी मटक   बड़ी ख़ुशी हुई उसे हरा भरा, बढ़ते हुए देख [...]

Neem aur tum, bhaai bhaai

खाली बैठी थी, तो याद आया कि दाँत साफ़ करने हैं मुँह में नीम का दातुन डाल लिया,   उसे चबाने पर,   कड़वा कड़वा रस मुँह में बहने लगा, पर अच्छा एहसास था, ये पता था कि कड़वाहट से ही तो दाँत साफ़ रहते हैं, कीटाणु नष्ट करती है कड़वाहट, नीम की कड़वाहट ! [...]

Diwali nazdeek hai

मुझे तुम मिले, पर नहीं मिले,   तो थक हार के मैंने अपने अंधेरों में झाँका, झाँकती रही, झाँकती रही,   तुम्हारी और से जब जब दुःख पाया, अंधेरों को अपने, मैंने, उतना ही अपना साथी पाया,   अब तो ऐसी यारी हो गयी है कि तुम से सुख या दुःख की कोई आशा नहीं, [...]

When I just AM

Nature is bare. Nature is naked. Nature is unapologetic. Nature is, what it is. Nature is expressing it's truth, shamelessly. And that is why, nature is Still. Stillness of the ocean, stillness of a mountain, stillness behind the movement of a river, stillness behind the chirping of a bird, stillness of mud, stillness of a [...]

My Dear mind

मेरे प्रिय, मन   आज मैं तुमसे वो कहने जा रही हूँ, जो मैं आज तक नहीं कह पायी । हम दोनों का संबंध, सदियों से चला आ रहा है, जन्मों जन्मांतर से । अब दूर से किसी को बताएँ, तो सोच सोच के बड़े अचम्भित और शायद (मूर्ख लोग) प्रसन्न भी हो सकते हैं, [...]

The Sho (Kno)ck of Cancer !

It is not that I felt everything was going great. Things 'were' going bad, physically, emotionally, mentally. But they were 'subtly' bad, 'mildly' bad. They were tolerable. I had started somehow tolerating my life. That was my biggest error. Not to be just NON TOLERANT about giving my power away to anyone! I had stopped [...]

Talk about ‘others’

I met a close mentor. Calling her a mentor, because I have always learnt something from her. And she is more experienced, seen more of life, the world, people, than me who is younger in age than her. Usually our meetings are about talking about each others experiences, challenges, new things explored etc.etc. This time, [...]
