A POET’S CRY

Do not kill a poet’s heart 

Do not put an end to her start 

With gleaming eyes, a poet writes 

With her words, the world she lights 

ANOTHER CHAPTER CLOSED

You come home from work,

I rush to greet you.

You don’t look at me at all,

I can tell this for sure .

EVOLUTION: A PROCESS

A process of gradually changing over time, 

A process our genes passed; old yet shine, 

Yes we evolved, biologically and in more logical terms, 

Unfolded many mysteries, felt paths taking turns. 

A CRITIQUE OF THE SYSTEM OF JUDGEMENTS

To commence with, absolute; is a term that does not have existence in empirical world, it is a term that exists in idealistic world, while on the other hand, the empirical reality offers you’relativity’. This is why facades crack often than usual, when the very fundamentals taken in account to construct an argument or a theory are mistaken to be absolute, although those were
merely relative and thus, could not provide a base due to its transitory nature.

NOT A BIG DEAL

You ever think about how technically nothing is ever that much of a big deal? That being a decent human isn’t a big deal to someone. That being sexually active isn’t that big a deal to someone. That maybe for someone being part of the queer spectrum isn’t a cause of tension. Or that maybe feeling a distinct lack of sexual attraction isn’t a big deal to someone.

AGE OF EDGE

Torn between insanity and vanity, we enter this new age decade, filled with an entourage of fallacious promises, masked cavalry, that we jump to catch hold of slightest of rays of hope that vanish like dust. In the depths of the heart that ached, we wished it was the stardust that blew as the constellation danced in the march of mayhem that they had begun.

MEASURING TAPE FOR THE OUTLAWS

A single pound spent on butter-cake melted my heart,

But you breached my happiness, you stole my credit card. 

Expecting me not to buy that silk dress, my curves would flaunt more. 

My bodyweight didn’t bother me but finding dieticians was your concern.

HOW WILL INDIA BECOME VISHWA GURU?

India has been a land of great leaders like Swami Vivekananda, Aryabhatta, etc. India has been entitled Vishwa Guru: reformer and preacher to the world. The title of ‘Vishwa Guru’ was envied by the world. However, after getting invaded by various nations India did not lose hope. Now, India is emerging as a unified nation to reclaim its title of ‘Vishwa Guru’.

MEMORIES

Hello, everyone. So, this one goes back to the days when we had the time to stop, feel the rain on our cheeks, smell the proverbial roses. This isn’t a story about me alone; it’s a story about me and her- my bestie and my rock. From the very beginning, I was the disciplined, rule-abiding, quiet one. She, on the other hand, was the excitable, wild one, the weirdo. She was my Sonu and I was her Titu (and no, that wasn‟t a likeness we gave ourselves). With tiffins being our only incentive, we were pretty regular to school. From dancing in the washroom to passing chits in exams, it felt like we were taking life by a storm; making it bow down to our will. But as someone once said, change is the only constant in life. 

SOMEDAYS

Some days it’s hard to believe in yourself, 

Some days make you realise you’re a gem 

Some days it’s hard to believe in miracles, 

But some days make you believe in them 

THE STORY OF THE ASIAN CONTAGION

It was the decade of the 1960s. The East Asian economies, especially the four Asian Tigers – Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan, had started growing at a tremendous rate. In fact, their achievements were so remarkable that their per capita growth rates were twice as much as that of other developing countries – for instance in 1968, the GDP of South Korea was 13.2%! Such exceptional rates of growth were mostly facilitated by increasing exports and adoption of free market policies. Advanced technology from abroad, massive accumulation of resources, and their better utilization gave impetus to this success. Poverty rates reduced dramatically in the region, and so did socio-economic inequality. The ‘East Asian miracle’: was the name given to this development.

THE REALITY CHECK

“To be true to yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else, is the greatest accomplishment.” All of us must have come across people posing questions like-“You aren’t the same anymore, you have changed, is it because of your new friends?”, “The other day you were criticising the people who smoke, but look at you today, you are smoking and drinking, aren’t you aware of the hypocrisy you are portraying? ” Being true to ourselves, what meaning does it actually carry? Is it a concept of still abiding by what you said years ago to someone, or is it a concept that teaches us to be rigid to any changes just so that you apparently stay true to yourself and keep your authenticity intact? To satisfy our inquisitive minds, lets figure this out.
