Silence:

•March 1, 2007 • 4 Comments


Have you ever really felt the silence?

silence of a predator in wake of its prey,
silence of a mother guarding her sleeping child,
silence of a proud father watching his son go out in this world,
silence of a sinner in penance.

Have you ever really heard the silence?

silence of a woman cheated,
silence of a greaving family,
silence of the couple in each others arms,
silent tears of repent,

Have you ever really lived the silence?

silence of living the beautiful moments of your life again,
silence of witnessing the love of your life walk away,
silence of feeling your life slip away,
And finally the silence of resting n peace.

silence is beautiful,
silence is lonely,
silence is anticipation,
silence is desolate,
silence is tranquil,
silence is harmony,
silence is the stillness of mind body n soul,

This silence is mine.

the BLUe jEAns has no eND

the 30 has struck.
the journey is half way thru
where are u heading
haven’t u seen enough
haven’t u experienced all
are u looking for the the unkown
i am not
are u hearing the future
i am not

we r trying to find something
that has already found us!!!

i am taking the train back
back to the journey i have been
it was beautiful
it was complete
it was wonderous
full of  experiences
full of  fanatasies
fanatises of reality
the worst was saved
i’as saved from being drowned
i was abt to fly
but now ……
humle is the word
i wish to see no more
i wish to hear no more
i wish to feel no more
i am walking back
walking back to where i belong
back to where i came from
the locomotive may have been replaced
the companions may have changed
but the journey is the same
with the ones that made a difference
they r real
they r the ones to remain
the memory remains

It is amazing
It was
cos it will be
I am &*#@# aware
Tanakal..kodai..nilgiris..goki..goa..bang!alore..increbile India !

I wish to see my life again
I  am walking back into it !!!

Reading = Sexiness! How sexy are u?

•January 24, 2007 • 2 Comments

I love reading. Wish i had more time in life to read. So everytime i read something interesting, who else can i talk with but you two? I love sharing art with people ….esp who apprieciate that & take the effort to look for it… i sometimes take books from library for other people…there r 3 books that i have checked out for my friends. i can always reccomend them books…but people forget & everyone is so busy …so i figured the best thing is if i think someone will love this book i check out from the public library & give it to them…this way they end up reading it & love the fact that i did so much effort for them to read a book….BOOKS are great…Reading books makes u aware, intelligent & conscious… which makes you sexy!

BTW i saw a documentary last night THE GROUND TRUTH. Its a series of interviews of Iraqi War veterans. very nice. Rahul You must watch it.
WATER is nominated for best foreign film. Its such a bad fuckin film. Too bad the goras dont get it. Any foreign film which shows the problems of that country is loved by these goras. it makes them feel good i guess that their world is much better than what they see on screen. I’m not saying we should not expose the problems we have in our society, infact as filmmakers or artists that our responsibility. But a bad film is a bad film.

Space Capsule or FOOD for poor?

•January 24, 2007 • 5 Comments

Its really great the progress India is making. I’m so proud of it. But at the same time we should not forget the problems we have. And I’m not asking the government to do much either. I have come to realize that its upto us citizens to make changes in society.
I heard it on radio yesterday –
” Never underestimate the power of a group of commited people to change the world, No one else has.”
So every time we read about our achievements in space research & stock market boom, we should at that very moment also think about all the poor people who will never benefit from all these achievements. And make a promise to ourself to do something to make this a better place. If not right now, tommorow.
I think you guyz must be thinking i’ve become a communist. I’m definitely leaning towards the left a bit. More so become of this administration we have here. But i’m still not a communist. I believe in free enterprise. I dont expect the govt to change our lifes…it is upto us.
JAI HIND!

Under the magical stars
With the clouds hustling by
And the darkness brightening up
The radio sang about the forgotten world..
while we sat up there..stoned immaculate in Ramnagar !
