it was a dark cloud
that burst on the earth
not sparing the world

breath by breath
life as it slides by
outright and sudden
no time to comfort
those in grief
the dignity of death
now is a documented brief
what’s left of life
are just covid conversations
with learning to stay safe
amidst healthy online sessions
how to stay sane
is the biggest question
for people in lockdown

“The highest happiness on earth is the happiness of marriage.” – William Lyon Phelps
By getting married you are not just getting a spouse for a wife or hubby, rather you are getting your whole world.
From then on until the rest of your days your wife/hubby will be your partner, your companion, and your best friend.
She or he will share your moments, your days, and your years. You will share your joys and sorrows, your successes and failures, your dreams and your fears. …
Prayer is not an unabating act of beggary for this, that and everything…rather praying is that action which is meant to be done straight from the heart and with a pure mind.Be it for even a few seconds or minutes, only then can it be heard. I feel “You must know how and what to pray for and where and when.” — Geetika Sethi
Praying is definitely not a time pass or a hobby that you develop to talk about or even boast about to others.
Coming to me, I’m not a person who is fond of praying. Now you…

Does your brain make you dwell in a world of nonsense? Did you know that if it does, you can re-wire it and restart it?

Doing so will enable you to get rid of your intrusive…
“How does a Perfected one move around in the world?” asks Arjuna at zero hour of battle. “Like a tortoise,” answers Shri Krishna.
Ever astute – his core fully engaged with the awareness and agility to pull all extroverted appendages back into his shell at the slightest sign of temptation or danger. Thus, not in the least bit entangled or disturbed by the going on’s in his surroundings, whatever those going on’s maybe.
The goriest yet captivating sight of a monitor lizard completely devouring a tortoise – so err mmm … skilfully, had my friend Avanti stop during her fast…
Sitting at my desk, sipping hot Masala Tea post a scrumptious breakfast, as I scrolled through new reads on Medium, I thought what do I write today?
Think, thinking and thought!
Yes, a sudden flash, a brilliant idea came to me as my eyes went to the left. There lay my deck of Tarot cards. Mind you, these are not the usual tarot card but the ones that give messages from the Divine.
So as usual, just like what’s my New Normal these days – I decided to call upon Lord Shiva to do this session with me.
mood to sleep more
still try to wake up but
no voice only hoarseness
can barely say a goodmorning
then thought let’s drink some hot jaggery water with ginger
maybe the vocal chords open up
and that warmth makes the throat feel so good
then I propped up at bit on bed
for it’s black coffee time
enjoyed it, while scrolling on slack
soon it’s time for a hot masala chai
sipping it I realised, I didn’t write
anything at all yesterday
why did I while away my time?
how did I forget to do something that I enjoy…
What am I afraid of, asked Josh?
What am I afraid of?
I’m a daredevil, not afraid of
what life throws to me.
Be it good times or bad times,
as they are just visitors
and not here forever to stay!
But the only thing I’m afraid of today is
My Blocked Nose — achchooo!!!
I hate getting a cold, as it blocks me,
blocks my ears, my nose and my
thinking capacity too!
So at such times when you ask me Josh,
What am I afraid of?
This is the best reply I can write to you.
Lord Shiva always comes to our rescue, I don’t know about the rest of you but for me, I am sure now, and especially after I sent him an email.
And I got doubly sure when I heard from him.
Last but not least, my joy knew no bounds when he attended the Illumination birthday party in his omnipresent avatar.
Do you know what happened thereafter? He just refused to go. I thought maybe he too has a hangover like the rest of us. But the mind-reader that he is, said “I’m not leaving anytime soon. I am here for…
If you're thinking before you start reading “It Better Be A Good Enough To Turn Me On.” I promise you that it will leave you satisfied to the core.
The Promo or so-called buildup to any event is always the best part. It’s always the trailer that leads you on to the main. And if it’s not catchy – doesn’t make you hold your breath for a second or pull your heart strings, it surely isn’t worth it.
Foreplay has and has to always be seductive in nature. By that I mean, in simple terms – it should be able…
