Fate & stars


Putting blame on fate
I found problems in others
I remained but blind,
Time was cruel to tell me late
Fault was never with my stars.

Creative day


Sound of lawn mower

Singing myna, hopping sparrows

My haven for writing,

Embracing this form of day

I have fallen in love with life.

Lately, I’ve been noticing this change in my writing habit that stillness of night creates hindrance in my creative writing process. During the day when there’s the sound of life on the street outside my home, my mind remains active.

This morning, when I could hear the sound of lawn mower in my neighbor’s garden and twittering of sparrows on my terrace, I was thinking nothing but this very line that “I’m in love with life”.

For heart I’ve used love and for shapes, I’ve used form.

Zou and his family


Everyone consider

it a childish routine but

I love Zou’s cartoons

Family, Zou and his issues

In it, there is joy and glee.

Zou is a French animated series. Inspired by the books of Michel Gay,  Zou is a day-to-day life story of young zebra, his family and friends.

Early in the morning when I wake my sister up for school, while taking breakfast, we both love watching these cartoons. These days due to some settings when Disney channel is being closed by our service provider, I’m missing this routine.

I have used joy for passion and glee for cheer.
