I just changed the world!


The night was dark..
The wind blew cold..
The leaves fluttered and spread themselves..
Across the porch..

Across the porch, she stood still..
Watching the stars as they went gleam

Gleam they went
From night to night
She sang the song
That came to her mind..

It came to her mind
From her heart..
The tune was new
The words were smart..

The words were smart
Nobody taught her to rhyme
She did this since she was 2
Little did she know, it was a crime..

Yes, it was a crime
The civilization did not know the art
They just knew how to play the dart

Play the dart
Is all they did…
They claimed art
A sinful deed


Mom said, “oh my child,
I warn you of hell..
Coming soon to take away your smile..

“Take away your smile
And never let you be..
What you want, my dear
Is not in this world for thee…”

“Its not for you
To sing and dance
They will never bear the happiness
And enjoy your trance..”

“You sing my dear
But not here
Coz I fear…
You are the one I have
You are my only dear..

She heard her mom
And walked out in the night..

She walked through the little lanes
And then through the garden…
She touched the sleeping buds
And caressed the little leaves
The fresh dew danced on her sleeves


She reached the crossroads
And noticed a shadow
He called her
To follow

She followed him
With reluctance
“Strangers are not to be trusted!”
She recalled her mom’s stance

The Shadow gestured her
To come close by
The face revealed in the darkness
Threw her haywire

She had nowhere to go

She realized where she had come
The board was behind her
The fate was now being rewritten

He took the dart
And made her stand
She sang the song
Without a damn

He shook his head
To concentrate
She did not give up
And let the tune dictate


The song turned him over
She realized
She had the power

The night turned into day
People gathered around
They stayed astound

This was something
They saw for the first time
The words had gripped them all
They suddenly enjoyed her rhyme

The mother screamed,
“Oh my child, what have you done!”

She said,

“It wasn’t me maa, it was you
They love the trance, but they had succumbed to the dues
All I did was sing my heart out
And change the way you live in this snout”

“I’ve just changed the world, maa!
And I will let me be..
What I want, is already here
How don’t you see?”

In fond memories of Capt. Nikhil Jadhav...

A long lost childhood friend... (24th May 1983 to 7th March 2011)


The music was playing
But couldnt listen to it
The food was on the platter
But couldnt eat it
The news had come
But still cant take it..

Time had arrived
But took away the wrong one
In silence and tranquil
Now lies your gun


That brain closed the doors
To the world unknown
That heart went numb
To the pain and succumbed


Still unable to take the news
You didnt leave us any clues
Rest in peace my dear friend
M sure ur safe up there


Till time unknown when we see you again
We'll stare the sky to point a STAR that you wud represent..


R.I.P. chhotu!!!

Off

Cool wind on my face Reminds me I’m stuck in a maze A dusky haze I fail to wipe off…
Moments pass by A smile with a wry No tears to cry I fail to write me off…
Off they go With a smirk in their eyes Off they go With ignorance on their minds Off they go.. my feelings.. Oh! off they go from all the sides
Looking out with an array of bewildered emotions I’m letting myself be taken away in this wind’s direction Without your sanction Oh lord! how do I put my past off…
Standing on the edge of this cliff I wonder if I at all miff Oh please don’t play the riff In the times so stiff When I fail to look out for a partner to just laugh it all off….

Oh the Bullet!

A thundering sound passed by..
The loud firing jolted me back
As the speed added a zest to my fly..

I am pulled in the momentary series of images, emotions, and a thought..
An experience of a visionary creation of my imagination..
Oh again in that usual daydream, I am happily caught..

It starts with a dense cloud of dust on my face
As I rub my eyes to see through the haze
Oh my god, a Desert Storm in front of my eyes!!!
My heart sets itself on an undefined pace..

The evening's red light fills the sky
I approach the beast..
And wish to fly..

The sun sets in the background
As I see the evening approach..
I decide to settle in the astound..
Its then, I see the moon rise in the night's blue..
The road's all empty..
I park my Storm under a street light, a little mist around...

A dog crosses, looks at me with a refrain..
A dry leaf flies with the breeze..
Settles itself aside in disdain..

I prepare, and wear my gear..
As I assure my Storm, "Babe, you are made to arouse fear!"

I look to my lef…
