Rescue Me

May 31, 2010
Rescue Me

As I lay dead

on my bed
I wonder where
am I going
next?
Is there a princess
aroundWho will come over

and rescue me

Till then i am

all alone

Living for my

next meal

Waiting for something

to light up

For the nights to

become colorful

Waiting for a spark

to rescue me

Its been
months

And i wonder

now

Whether i will find

joy at all

Waiting for love

to rescue me

Mosquitoes feast

on this corpse

And as I speak to

myself

When will I

have my next
affair?
And I wait
for someone who
will

Rescue me

The White Fairy

May 31, 2010
It happened one
night

I followed someone
into the night

Did a tango left
& right

Took my share of
risk

Crossed many
junctions

Jumped the red
light

It happened one
night

Followed her till I
got my share of
ecstasy

The very next
day

She came to
me

I took the road
opposite

It happened one
night

Now i sit &
wonder

What happened?

Why did i back
out?

I feel a bit
ashamed

Was it all meant
to be a one night
stand?

It happened one
night

What is Life?

May 30, 2010
What is Life?

Life is full of
colors

And one colors
himself with
ecstasy

What is Life?

Life is full of
adventure

One explores himself,
the people around &
the world

What is Life?

Life is full of
friendship

One has all the fun
in the world

What is Life?
Life is full of
love

One meets all the
joys & desires one
is looking out for

What is Life?

A time comes
when

One wonders if there
is anything to wonder
about

And life loses its
value

What is Life?

The West & the East

May 29, 2010

The West & the East

Have been long wondering about this eternal question “What is the East? What is the West? And when the twain shall meet?”. After a little bit wandering around the world and a bit of introspection (I am from the east, but i have habits of the West), I have come to believe the world is rapidly fusing together and the world is becoming increasingly homogeneous. And the east & the west are meeting like never before to create history.

The East

The East ballooned in the number of people with a population  of more than 2 billion in India & China alone. It got a bit lazy in terms of progress in technology and its benefits in the last few centuries while the west raced ahead. This had immense negative effects: large scale poverty, illness and corruption to name a few. However from the last decade, with the west deciding to come to the east, it has created:

~ Immense opportunities for the east to get its people out of poverty, disease & illiteracy
~ Opportunity to create wealth
~ Access to technology to improve home & work convenience

The West

The West has been busy in the last couple of centuries in creating immense technology progress for the advancement of its people. Countries like England, Germany & United States innovated their way out to be the torchbearers for the advancement of human civilization. Recently in the past decade, they have come out of their shells and are trying to take the east along in their road ahead:

~ They are helping the East to get its people out of poverty, disease & illiteracy
~ They have provided jobs, business opportunities to the East
~ At the same time, they are trying to figure out what lies ahead for the human civilization and are digging values, ethics, science, space and more.

The West and the East meeting together is happening right now and the question is where is the world going next? Where would the leaders come from ? What would they bring to the world?

No Money

May 29, 2010
No Money

When one has no
money

One feels a bit
lost

Looks around for
his loved ones
for support

When one has no
money

One starts thinking
“What to do?”

How do I survive?

When one has no
money

One looks out for
how to earn
money

One needs to get up
and running

When one has no
money

Money looses its
value

What matters is
what one does

When one has no
money

Love

May 28, 2010

I wonder
whats love got to
do with anything?

I would always wonder
whats money got to do
with love

Can money get love or
can love get money?

I found out Love
&  Money go in
parallel

Thier tracks seldom
meet

I wonder
whats love got to
do with anything?

Does love find its
way into poor
people’s heart?

Does love find its
way into the rich &
famous people’s
heart?

And then i found
out

Love follows the
heart

Whether people have
fame or not?

I wonder
whats love got to
do with anything?

Does love flow across
race, religeon &
caste?

And then i found out
love follows bouts
of instinct &
madness?

It crosses all
borders one can
imagine

We ourselves form
boundaries

And love still
flows

I wonder
whats love got to
do with anything?

I found out

Love does not need
anything

But

Everything goes with
Love

I wonder
whats love got to
do with anything?

The Fall

May 27, 2010

The Fall

Everyone has a fall
once in a while

The fall is swift
and catches you
offguard

It causes pain &
loss

Everyone has a fall
once in a while

Some people fret &
give up

Never to recover &
stand up again

Everyone has a fall
once in a while

The others rest &
recover

Then get up and start
running

Everyone has a fall
once in a while

Life is all about
running,
falling,
getting up,
running again

Everyone has a fall
once in a while

You must choose
and choose you
must

The path you take

You must choose
and choose you
must

Is it discovering one’s
own journey to the

Che

Once lived a
man

When he was young
he went for a
spin on his bike

He saw poverty,
illness and
atrocity

Once lived a
man

All his nuts went
loose

He decided to become
a gureilla

Once lived a
man

He became a poor
people’s man

He took on governments
& injustice

Once lived a
man

His work affected
millions

The news spread far
& wide

Once lived a
man

One man became
mightier than the
world

The World’s superpower
decided to take him
out

Once lived a
man

We can now only hope
to walk in his shoes
for a mile

And hope there is a
little of Che in every
one of us

Once lived a
man
