I Say Chaps

सफ़र

चाहतें यूं ही नहीं अक्सर मंज़िल को तरस जाती हैं,बस्ती और वीराना दोनों मुझसे नाराज़ है। सैलाब कब का, पशेमां हो कर गुज़र चुका है, हवाओं को नजाने क्यों खुद पे नाज़ है। वफ़ा सरे राह बैठी है एक तल्मीह के इंतज़ार में, जाने तेरे रुखसार में वो क्या इक राज़ है। शायरी क्या है…

Norway

Just a small distance away from the north pole of the earth on a barren stretch of a frozen lake where the pearly radiance of ice illuminates the horizon like a glowing thread, I am reclining on crafty sled busy enjoying the hospitality of Angis and of Delfin, Furoe and Adrian. ” Ha Delfin Ha…Buck-up…

Ageing gracefully

Perhaps compare to the rest of the day, the Sun looks most beautiful in the twilight when the cloudy wrinkles enhance its aesthetic features making it glow with the trueness of its colours. Hi Shishir; Surprised? Oh! Don’t be. My voice sounds a little shaded yet so familiar. you should look at my picture, the…

All in a day’s work

The distance was hardly a concern, just about two and a half kilometres that too on a recently decked up masterplan motorway, of course, you got to accommodate the rainy day disasters, the popped up blisters of sewage flooding the sideways of the main road but that’s true for any Indian road and any Indian…

निशब्द…

हिमगिरि के उतंग शिखर पर बैठा एक महर्षि, आलोकित वाणी से कर रहा युगांतर प्रलय पाठ। इधर श्वेत मूंछों पर करों का कोमल प्रहार, उधर छण भर में युगों का फेर । जल भी था कल भी, बालकों का कोलाहल भी था, शिवाय की धुन पर सतयुगी शिव हो रहा मदमस्त था। पुत्र वियोग में…

Moksha….The Himalayan Spa Resort

Some names do not need any justification for their keeping, this one certainly belongs to the category I am talking about.  When I stood glaring at the surreal charm of the horizon at the hour of the eventide when the glittering golden hue of the water from the infinity pool was kissing the skyline, the…

Rurban Picnic

Grand Masti… Me Time-You time Bus-full of beauties in a mood ready to rock-n-roll and with a look edging to kill of course, a skimble- scamble like myself rippled out to occupy the far corner seat.

Weekend Funda…Go Missing

I am not endorsing the old hedonistic theory that pursuit of pleasure and material goods is the primary goal of life but the statement that the ‘desire for happiness is the basic human trait, resonates in the realms of reality. For me this pursuit of happiness embellishes itself in my own doctrine of detoxification. One…

Dalhousie

  There are days when I feel this incessant urge to get away from the maddening maze of macadam materiality towards more serene lap of mother nature. Even if it means trending uncertain paths, even if I am not sure of the destination  …that’s my idea of UNWIND….pack my bag, put on the traveller hat,…
