If Not Now When, Indeed

If Not Now When, Indeed

The recent news about the passing of SurveyMonkey CEO Dave Goldberg caught my attention not just because he was in the tech industry, like I am, or that he was married to Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg which made him somewhat more famous than most, but because he was 47.

Yeah, I work in a similar industry, and will turn 47 in a few months.

The news has made me pause and…

यूँ ही चल दिए हैं अजनबी...

कोई पड़ाव मेरे भी इंतिज़ार में होगा….

यूँ ही चल दिए हैं अजनबी राहों की ओर
कहीं तो मंज़िल होगी कहीं तो ठिकाना होगा,

आरज़ू-ए-दिल तो बंजारों की तरह चलता रहा
अब अपने शौंक की खातिर मुझको भटक जाना होगा,

बहुत दूर तक चला जाता है मेरी सोच का दायरा
कभी तो सोच को सच में आज़माना होगा,

कितने बदले हुए चेहरों से परेशान रहती हूँ
फिर भी इन पत्थरों से दिल लगाना होगा,

कहीं बारिश की बूँदें मेरी आँखों को बयान न कर दें
छुप-छुपाते ही…

Pride Of Being Me

Recognise your inner power!

Photo by h.koppdelaney

Here I am standing far away from myself ,
to touch the aroma of my own essence,
feeling the words that will never become mine,
I am still a star but with no more shine.

Go on and never look back,
never be ashamed, never fill the crack,
let the motion shake you up till you die,
until and unless you are a human ,this what you should come to realize.

Redemption is always…

Having To Live Without Him

God sent me peace through his angel!

I have a feeling I cannot resist.
I feel as if there is an angel in our midst.
What will he do and say?
Will he make himself known today?

Many a prayer I have spoken.
I told the Lord how I feel so broken.
I have fallen in despair.
I wonder does he even care.

He has taken the one who made me feel complete.
Now all I want to do is retreat.
I sit and remember for a while.
He…

Dear Cassie

Can we be a family again?

Photo by h.koppdelaney

Dear Cassie.. I love you like crazy
as we don’t talk..which lets the distance spur
Between us. For me we are still us.
We lived once together but we are now apart
and I don’t curse. or outburst for the fate’s well played part
There was no need for you to go from my life
To not let me meet our three beautiful kids
I couldn’t be a saint but I am sane enough
They are still our…

The Full Circle

All my deeds are done..

Photo by h.koppdelaney

Seeking a bride at my ripe age
Getting married amidst near and dear
feeling as a special person in the groom’s attire
Humming those romantic tunes holding her hand
experiencing the heavenly feeling at our honeymoon
decorating our little hamlet with Love and care
Eagerly returning home after the work
to get her hug and kiss
marked the Golden period in my life till then

Time…
