Chakra — Life Cycle #aros

सुत्र फिरायला लागली आहेत.

वातावरण बदलायला लागल आहे,

कुन्द वाटणारी खोलीसुद्धा हवीहवीशी वाटतीये,

नकोसे वाटणारे लोकसुद्धा चांगले वाटत आहेत,

गजबजलेला रस्ता एकदम आपलासा वाटतोय आता,

आधी”काहिच नाही इथे” म्हणणारा मी,

“कसा सोडून जाउ मी हे” अस म्हणतोय आता,

या गोष्टिचा खेद नाहिए की हे सगळ माग पडणार आहे,

पण आश्चर्य या गोष्टिच आहे की,

नाविन्याची चाहूल लागाताना,

जुनाट गोष्टी कशा आपल्याशा वाटायला लागातात.

 

*****

 

नव्याची चाहूल, जुन्याचा निसटता स्पर्श,

हाती खेळत राहणारा तो सुवासिक गंध,

सगळच हवहवस वाटतय आता.

पण हे चक्र असच चालत राहणार…. अविरत…

True To Themselves… #aros

पर्दे को क्या पता,

वो ज़माने से क्या छुपा रहा है,

वो तो सिर्फ़ अपने मालिक से,

वफ़ा करना जानता है.

 

 
चश्मे को क्या पता,

आखें उसमे से क्या देखती है,

वो तो सिर्फ़ नज़ारोको,

आरपार करवाना जानता है.

 

Trying to steal something…

 

I am trying to steal the sunshine,

So that I can illuminate my shrine,

I want to lit every corner of it,

Don’t wanna leave even a single bit

 

I am trying to steal the moonlight,

So that I can conquer the night,

I want to feel the utter silence,

The darkness and its sheer brilliance

 

I am trying to steal kid’s smile,

Wonder how it stretches a mile,

Their innocence and that silky skin,

Like them I too wanna be God’s kin

 

I am trying to steal a heart of Mother,

Her pure love and care just like a feather,

Her art of unconditional love and care,

Calling her a part of God is only fair


Mind Play…

“Hey, are you done with it?”

“No, wait a second. I am trying to memorize the incident”

“What incident? There was no incident at all that day. It was a plain, simple day”

“No, there was something interesting, something special that day”

“Then why it’s not visible on your painting? Why your painting looks simple and eventless?”

“It is there, you just need to have my vision.

You see there? That right hand corner? There is that pendant she liked very much in that shop. You see that? You won’t because you don’t love her.

You see that window above? There she used to stand for hours, just to see me passing by. A minute of glimpse was enough reason for her to stand there like forever.

You see that dome? She so wanted to climb that dome and look around the city for its beauty. But what she didn’t understand was that dome was not having any stairs, but she still wanted to go there like a crazy little baby.

You see the overcast sky? She used to cling to my hand all the time in anticipation that lightning will happen and she would be late to grab my hand.”

“Huh, that’s just your imagination. You are becoming too optimistic and think she is a still there with you, but she is not”

“You just shut up and stop denying her existence”.

 

All along, with hands inside the gloves were taking rest, head and eyes were covered with the hat. But inside that hat, two brains were fighting with each other. The left was denying her existence and the right was being too optimistic. Soon the head will come out of its exile and hands off the gloves and soon the painting session will start. Soon some paintings, like those in the other room, will follow and will keep on giving the subject to two brains to fight on.

Chasings to Accomplishments… Stone#2 #aros

I was riding my cycle to home this evening and on up particular turn I thought of catching a back side of some car for a moment to get momentum and speed. It was an uphill and today I was in a bit hurry, so thought of catching the car. It was running slow at first and there wans’t much gap between me and that car. So paddled a bit harder and tried to reach the car. But at the same time the car started speeding up and I also had to paddle faster. After 3-4 minutes of such intense paddling I realized that I have reached at the peek of that hill cum road and now there is no need to catch anything as it will be easy to ride down the hill.

 

I realized life also behaves in a same way with us, so does the opportunities we crave. They lure us to try harder and harder and they keep running away from us, just to bring to our notice that we have achieved, accomplished the goal we wanted to achieve.

 

Moral: Running behind opportunities help us in becoming a better achiever and teaches us many things. Now there is a school of thought which says don’t run behind the things in life. The more you run behind them, the more they run away from you.

Now you decide which one to choose and follow 🙂

For me both the things are true. Its just the timing which decides which strategy to opt and which to not opt for 🙂

What do you people think?

 

Inexplicable Heart… | Stone#1 #aros

I am feeling heavy-hearted… to leave her alone again. But that’s what destiny seems to be throwing at me. I think of her and her composed and smiling face comes before my eyes. The face which looks serene from the surface but under the skin its creased. The eyes look happy for me, but around the corners there are tears hiding behind the eyelids. She doesn’t show the disturbed mind and heart at the thought of me going away from her, but pretends to be exhibiting blithe. But I sensed all those on her, my mother’s face.

 

I will try to submerge your inner soul in the plethora of your joyous surface.

I will bring that smile from within you and not just the outer muscles.
