……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

the creaky stairs

the unpainted door

the cracked windows

the unpolished floor

……………………………………..

the musty smell

of the old wood

reminds me of the days

of my childhood

…………………………………..

i love the balmy breeze

that flows in on summer days

i belong here i know

this is where my heart stays

………………………………………

i am attached to this house forever

it was here i was born

my childhood still stays here

it was here my parents i did mourn

…………………………………………

i belong here i know

this is my paradise

i wish to be born again

in this house i emphasize

An excuse to smile

An excuse to forget

An excuse to live life

An excuse not to fret.

An excuse to be happy

An excuse to dream

An excuse to love

An excuse to hold up your esteem.

Always find excuses

For the above wonderful things

After all you only live once

Happily accept what nature brings.

The Crow Tribe.

A beautiful memory of my childhood that haunts me even now. My father has me up in his arms and we are on the terrace of our house. On the adjacent terrace is a huge cement slab projecting outwards.On that slab there are around 20 to 30 crows. One crow out of them appeared to be the boss. As and when that crow jumped here and there all the other crows paid attention to him .Soon the leader crow flew and the others waited for him. Soon he came back and appeared to tell something to the others. Then one by one the other crows flew here and there as if going on some errands, assigned to them by the leader.

It was a beautiful memory, a vivid picture my father painted, that I can visualise even today. Just went on to make me believe that even birds have a world of their own.

It was much later I came to know that a group of crows is called a ”murder”

Also what my dad told me as a child, was actually true. It was quite possible that the group of crows was actually having a conference, because they are known to be among the world’s most intelligent animals.

Lovely, isn’t it!

Insomniac.

The clock strikes 12 midnight

I hurry to brush my teeth, wash my face

Apply night cream,look in mirror for wrinkles. See many.

Apply cream anyway. Lie down. My back itches. Turn sides. Still itching. Get up to apply talcum. Lie down.

Ah sleep finally.

But no, A dog starts barking in the street. Try to ignore. Keeps barking.

Get up again. Opr the window to shoo off the dog. Does not go. Go back to bed.Look for my ear beds. Put them in my ears. Try to sleep.

Light coming from in between the curtains. Get up again. Close the curtains .

Go back to bed. Look at the  clock. Its already 2 a.m.

Panic. Have to get up early. Try to sleep.

Damn, I am thirsty. Get up again to drink water.

Come back to bed, exhausted.

Try to sleep. Wake up with a start. My alarm went off.Look at the clock. It went off early.

Try to sleep for an hour more.

Get up because of someone knocking at the door.

Time for work, my son says.

Get up finally.

Did I sleep at all?

See no degree of rest or sanity in my nights….
