Dreaming On

I wonder if this happens with everyone- The thing is that some days I just can’t gather myself up, can’t make myself get up from bed. Some days I just wish to keep dreaming on. I miss a few morning lectures, sometimes it hampers my schedule and plans…but I never regret it. While the Alarm […]

टुकड़ों की ज़िंदगी

टुकड़ों की ज़िंदगी टुकड़ों में बिखरी पड़ी ये ज़िंदगी- एक हँसी का फव्वारा यहाँ तो, दो बूंद आंसुओं की नमी कहीं… पल कुछ ऐसे सोच-सोचकर जिन्हें- मुस्कान को कभी रोक न सके हम, पर हँसते हँसते पता नहीं कब रो पड़े हम…  

Why mirrors exist?

For some reason, mirrors have always intrigued me. They have a sublime mystery attached to them.Their silvery speckless sheen create an illusion for me. I wonder how human beings survived when there weren’t any. It’s not that I spend a large part of my day in front of a mirror, but it’s just that whenever […]

आज़ादी

आज़ादी ‘इन पंखों का बेताब फड़फड़ाना, इन नम आँखों का मिटमिटाना. ये दिनभर की बेचैन चीत्कार, ये निशब्द मानसिक हाहाकार. पापा, क्यों ये मैना है हमने रखा, दर्द हरपल है इन आँखों से टपका. प्लीज़, कर दो ना इसे आप आज़ाद, पहुंचे न पिंजरे तक अभी मेरे हाथ.’ ‘बेटा, बेकार है ये तुम्हारी धारणा, रोना […]

A City called Art

It’s said, well begun is already well done. This certainly wasn’t the case then. I was tired from my final exam, hadn’t had a blink of sleep the night before and literally had been to the Oral along with my backpack, ready to head straight off to the Airport. I was hungry, dead-tired, sleep-deprived and […]

Trip to Rapperswil: Rose Garden of Swiss

After a long time I had the time and opportunity to move out of Zurich, not counting the excursions to nearby Thalwil and Baden which were not exciting enough to describe, except perhaps the 3-hour long 3-course free dinner at Baden, thanks to Axpo AG, which we relished totally!! Yesterday I had a chance to […]

I have a Dream…

[This poem titled ‘I have a Dream…’,  if I remember well, was written by me on 19th September 2004. This creation comes from me at a time of my life, when I was bubbling with excitement of doing something, achieving something. That was when I was in 10th grade, the first time in India when […]

Fitting in…

Being in a foreign country for the first time is like playing a board game, except this time you really ARE into it!!! You get to have strange new money, move around strange new cities, have to eat strange new foods, experience strange new parties and meet strange new people. Last night while I was […]

Auf Wiedersehen !

It’s all about the little things, it always has been. Be it the cute tiny badges with a German word in each, or a ‘Viel Glück‘ card with a Beetle shaped Chocolate attached to it. This is about my ‘little’ German Class where I learnt a ‘little’ of the Language, but a lot of  ‘Choti Choti […]

Right Ya Wrong

Stumbling through websites…I came across a nice write-up by Isaac Asimov, the much celebrated American Sci-Fi writer. In this particular article, for what it seems, the first time he gives the black holes, white dwarfs, trans-galactic trips and the likes of extra-robotic perception a much needed break and talks of right and wrong. As I […]
