Failure of Communion- मिलन की असफलता
यह हमारे बीच क्या जगह है 
जो हमें जोड़ देती है  एक शख्सियत में ,
फिर भी  हरेक को
अकेला बाँट देती है
कमज़ोर पुल जोड़ते हैं 
आँखों से आँखें 
जिस्म से जिस्म 
लफ्ज़ से लफ्ज़ 
जाल हर खाने से उधड़ा है 
ये जानता है हर शख़्स 
कितनी भी करीबी
क्यों न हो हमारी छुअन 
या विस्तृत हो हमारी बातें ,
चुप्पियाँ,खालीपन गहरा है 
और नहीं भरेगा
-translation mine
************************************************
What is the space between, 
enclosing us in one 
united person, yet 
dividing each alone.  
Frail bridges cross from eye 
to eye, from flesh to flesh, 
from word to word: the net  is
gapped at every mesh,  
and this each human knows: 
however close our touch 
or intimate our speech, 
silences, spaces reach 
most deep, and will not close.

Of death and the dead
e.e cummings said - “Unbeing dead isn't being alive.”
The backward counting
of our numbered days
is the truth we fear and evade
yes I have contemplated
it through
The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying
I have held
Morrie's hand
tuesday after tuesday
I am stoic
face to face
with dead faces
I read the
obituaries
in newspapers
every morning
grief is a house often
without an exit
its heavy
like an anchor
that doesn't allow
any movement
like the memory
of an amputation
for those
left behind
the beautician says
"ma'am you seem young
to have grey hair"
I smile
because
she doesn't know
I am dead.

Disclaimer :
This isn’t a classified advertisement
of my pain, long back in a theatre class
I had learnt to
throw my voice, that’s all
The echoes of sad memories
in happy pictures
Something is wrong
in my color palette
gray, gray, gray
like the salty ashes
from a fresh pyre
what did I burn
Karma is omnipresent
bland , but burns my thorat
like over-boiled bitter tea
Its a dream or a nightmare
in that old library
near evening college
I am searching for
a book called
sure shot ways to kill your soul
the body is a prison
it needs rules
craves for love
can’t move without
directions
meaning
the soul I believe
would someday be free
of this helplessness
of being.

तेरी रूह में सन्नाटा है और मेरी आवाज़ में चुप
तू अपने अंदाज़ में चुप है मैं अपने अंदाज़ में चुप

“It is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you are not.” ― André Gide
Introduction
I am a student in the class of life,a work in progress!
To this blog I am its single parent.Have been an English literature student,worked as a lecturer,language -trainer and editor.Ever since my daughter was born I am primarily a mom. Other than that I am an avid reader and a commoner. I am an eternal wanderer,searching for self,good books,and the elusives like love and peace. My urge to dig my mental teeth into something wholesome is as frequent and urgent as my need to cook and eat good food. My kid is my coach,and I would like to believe that my friends and my partner are fellow students in this wonderful class of life. My lessons come from extraordinary great books and mundane everyday tasks. I cherish my friends as special blessings from above..and I love to be one myself. Poetry is my first love and my blog my voice.
Bragging rights
I am my brilliant daughter's mom and her fellow student in a big class called life.I am a blogger,writer,poet,editor and I am told often I am good at my job.
