Saraswati puja will be on 1.2.17, but this is one Goddess we writers, artists worship round the clock so, let it be today, 5.1.17 or one month later 5.2.17 we salute you the giver of wisdom and creativity!

white
like jasmine
wearing ice white,
ye yielding a veena in
your blessing hand.
We salute
thee!

This is a translation (part) of a Sanskrit shloka, that we all have to chant when we offer our puja to this much revered Goddess. 🙂

Have a fun sunday!

it is still 5.1.17, and I am just still rummaging the old bag, this one is from 2015 durgapuja 🙂

memories
of beautiful
past can be
fun when present is drab,
not always an
excuse to
brood.

right? when I am checking out the old photographs a smile is popping up on my face, making me forget the concrete jungle right outside the window. 🙂

So memories are not always sad! right?

have a fun sunday! Sometimes they cheer you up when present has not much to offer.

yo kids, it is still 5.1.17. So, pardon the old picture but the poem is new, though I sheepishly admit that I am not in the mood for writing poem! stil… its better to give you something instead of nothing!

A
little tired

just like the woman sitting
beside it, but
both can
roar.

Have a fun sunday!
love.

hullo babies! it is still 5.1.17, so more oldies for you. If I am lucky (I mean it) I will be sharing fresh works in February. Airtel is truly disgusting! believe me!

descendants I

I do sometimes miss those glory days of India, it is true India has achieved a lot but it has lost its grandeur somewhere down the road. Courtesy goes to first few decades of politicians who with their “anti-aristocrat” slogans ruined something they don’t have the capacity to create.

Don’t forget that these are all old stock, stuffs from past ;p it is still 5.1.17 and I am still cursing airtel as I am fishing out these old images from media library for you. As my folder of new works is sitting on the desktop taunting me! ;p

home
it was
once, now it
is a tourist spot, used
to earn revenues,
consumerism is
mantra!

I will love to buy a fort if I can maintain it, to make it my home of course! 🙂 That is a dream which will die with me.

Have a fun sunday!

Happy new year? Eh? 😉

Hey! I finally managed a picture for you. Once again, may God bless you with the best only!

so, here is the seventeen word poem for you on 2017 😉

old
crumbling walls
once were proud
and tall, now those days
are gone, but
their glory
remains.

So, let us build our lives that way, right? when we are gone our glory may stay!

Love.
