grind-mill (thankyou max sir for suggesting the title)

8’o clock sharp
stereotype classes
Then algorithms for
evangelism and masses

A paradigm designed
For emotional automation
A bio-port hauls him
To a classroom station

Survival is contagious
Is a lesson he’s learnt in time
Doctrined against
All forces sublime

The threads of thought
are more virtual than believed
The louder the tears
The lesser is the grief

But his life aint a blast
One which Jetson might just not last
For the rate of knots
Is a wee bit too fast

How far can he go?
And what preludes his end?
Is he cribbing about this rat race??
Crumbling in this trend?

The ways of his life
Harsh, they might seem
But remember, the world still has plenty
Who aspire to dream.

And a spring to begin
Or a December without frost
A slumber to last through
Would be a crime to ask for .

want to develop into a novella... title not yet decided

Gina was an ordinary british girl. She would steal a look into the bright dishes after washing them. They reflected her auburn face and added their own silverfish tinge to it. She could write, do maths and play football all of which weren’t noble occupations for a girl her age, or at least so all the ladies in her house told her. She worked in ‘the eagle and a child’ in oxford at a time the place hadn’t reached the heights, it now has. A public house , or as is commonly know , a pub , it was frequented by the writers group called the ‘inklings’, which had at some time included J.R.R Tolkein and C.S Lewis. Life wasn’t very quissential for this little lady and her idiosyncrasies of writing logical analysis or math solutions on the dusty windows with wet hands and playing ball with the street side boys after work, had gotten her into trouble more often than not. They complained about everything that she did including her hand shakes, which they said were always harder and more masculine in nature than should be. Her clothes were way too shabby and baggy. “What a waste, you have such a slender waist and your clothes never get to adorn it”, they would say.
She would ignore all that she had to and go and unite with her religion…

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken:
The crownless again shall be king.

The she would rest in the palms of god. Less she knew that fate kept in store for her, boundless glory of a legend ,whose tales would grow as religion. She slept , unaware that the trees and the wind had already begun to sing her name as they gently wrapped her in a warm blanket , curled in which she lay dreaming Aristotle , logic and a cute boy she had served ale to today . Gina slept, for the last time as just an ordinary girl.

Lost for an eternity

A dip
in the canvas
and a mosaic builds

Of this reverie
Are enough to kill

I try to believe
But it fails to sink
A tear transpires
Retreats on reaching the brink

That corner
I stand alone
Trying to annihilate
Every memory of your tone
That forgotten porch
blinded by its veils
I plead it to
wash me in its obliterating rays

The empty dishes
The listless robe
The frolicking ants
The lightning bolt
Their familiarity
I look for , to breath into me
A borrowed life
In this transient eternity

when you want , it never rains

It was noon. I had been walking in the winter sun for more than an hour now. ‘Electric storm’ was storming my head as the beats synchronized my steps. I was in a trance, oblivious to whatever was happening around, even my own emotions. Just then I bumped into him. I shifted my gaze and began to remove my ear pieces, pretending, in vain as tears violently began to stream down my eyes betraying every bit of that projected numbness. I hated myself for letting him read my mind and I hated him more for not loving me back. It wasn’t raining and I had no excuse to hide my face so bleakly smiled as the saline tears caressed my face. He gently came forward and hugged me and I silently fell back in love with him all over again

brutal confessions

The day is fresh
Winter , yet nascent
The morning wet
Its breathing meant
To brutally
hurt a nerve
And I can ,
but lament…

I wish to stare
But the tears wont stop
I wait to blink
But my eyes feel fogged
I cant reflect
The spotlight glares
And miles away lies
The idealism I wish to bare

The lost is not
What I hope to revive
The confessions I choose to make
not just to survive
I cant care less
What the world bellows
I stand here
A culprit of my own woes

the dreamland chronicle

The sunshine calender
The one that wades
Have you seen it closely
It mumbles… “bring on the dates”

The specky alarm clock
The nerdish look is to delude
Nights , in the closet
It does a tap dance…though crude

The old porch bench
The one that loudly creaks
It flies to lands over the clouds
On rainy days …when everyone’s asleep

The obsolete radio
That lies in the garage
Ever seen it play with the spiders
Musical chairs and hop scotch

The cosco basketball
that has no grip
the threads of which
can be rethreaded to form a whip

and you may think
its old and cant rub
but watch it at noon
take the most fabulous lay-ups

They lie now
Lost in a slumber …deep
Begging me to stay awake
While they dream their own dreams

coep(good for the title)

It’s been quite long; I haven’t written anything…or at least anything substantial.
I was just getting bored; you see that’s what diwali is actually for. Kids burn crackers, mom nags, and I get to head the beautification drive. The dusting away of previous rangolis, the scrubbing off crayon marks from kitchen walls and telephone shelves, running behind dogs and shoo-ing them off your garden are some of the important errands comprising this job.
And then she yells, who else…my mom, “look how dirty you are looking …least make yourself a little more presentable”.
“Ya mum, I couldn’t resist, the sudden craving for playing in the muck”
Now that’s some festive treat (smirk).
That done, … (ahem, that is my taking a bath) ….and the rest of the camouflaged torture of meeting guests and getting boxes of sweets, (ya, good …dump them on our head…so that no one in the your family becomes fat)…I decide, its high time I wrote, if not out of sudden creative enlightment, then bored of this hyper exaggerated Indian melodrama.
Actually, even that is not quite the reason I sit down to write. It mostly is because I just happened to check the blogs on net about COEP , and my blog occurred on the 5th , 6th page , that too just 1nce , where as Abhishek n Suparna had there’s splashing all over.
So, this once I write about COEP and COEP alone and you might find the name being mentioned way too often, even multiple times in the same line. So if you are an over attentive , “bored of life” critic , you may as well not read this or if you do please don’t whine about grammar or absolute blandness in vocab or overuse of “COEP” in the text , because that is exactly what I intend to do here.

It’s quite a dormant time. COEP has common offs (as in not officially). Common offs are never official namesake, though most professors and staff love to assume that we are always looking for an extension a weak before and after the actual common off. So again, if the course is left incomplete or if there aren’t any lectures for a month or so, it is all because we sent out “strong vibes” to the lecturers that we might not attend. I say strong because, whenever students give it out, the vibes, it’s always strong. Like they say in all ceremonial orations “the students are the strength of our institution”. Here ,they refers to generally the director and in rare cases the students representative , specially when he is the sensitive shy sort and feels just too abashed to say “good faculty or good infrastructure”.

Though given the chance, I would love to brag of our infrastructure and staff. We never really have to bunk, you know what I mean. About the infrastructure, every time you don’t get the experiments right, you can blame it on the entraptions.
With provisions such as these, why would any student complain?
No, on a serious note, I think….we ought to update ourselves and do a lot more. For a comprehensive coverage on this, refer to “reports” section in the college magazine. It’s the only section where things are not twisted and blown out of proportions. There is never any scope to.

Any ways, I had started out with an objective to mention “COEP” several times, and so far I haven’t really stuck to the resolution.
So, I’ll wrap it up with some very bogus lines. Please don’t judge my writing skills on these lines. For the evaluation part, please read the proceeding poems and if you don’t understand them in the first read, you may add the site link to your favorites and visit this site over and over again at ease. I promise, in due course of time, you will grow quite fond of them, just as I have.

Transient supernovas
blast my sky
Scarred boulevards
barren , they lie...

Shuddering rains
fall no more
Flashes of hope
perrinially wiped off by these wars

Creatures of wrath
Raid my land
Lash through my veins
Helpless...I stand

Who do I forgive?
What do I look for?
This monster in me
is killing me more...

The army gathers
The questions multiply
The beggining thats lost
Can it be revived?

Abandoned homes
Ephemeral lives...
Humane holocasts
Homecomings a strife.

come undone

Lacing through
the wilderness
Losing myself
In the bliss

I stay wild
Fly with the green
Knock the doors of xion
And dive into infinity

Echo of the silence
Untouched untamed
No strings attached
Home is light years away

No! no nostalgia
No déjà vus
No shattered dreams
No vindication too

In this sea of green
I have come undone
A precious dream
Of a life under the sun

Saturday, August 06, 2005


Obtrusive gales
Block my way
The windy night
Gathers torrential trails

Forlorn traveler
I sought your land
Lingering my gaze
Rests weary on your sands

Your memory softly
Begins to fade
Reinforcing waves
Do not tirade

And as darkness grows
Like blinding walls
The sprinting oceans
Of apparitions fall

Idiosyncratic days
Fly in fly out
The clock ticks
With a straddle around its bow

Lucid I lie
Unde the candid sky
Waiting for winds of change
To liven my days and nights

pune weds

The trickling drops
Garnish earth grains
The abyss legitimately
Harbors nascent rains
The squirrels squeak
And playfully mate
As monsoon in a nuptial
Weds Pune

Like a veiled bride
She tarries on blind
The silver moonlight
Forbidden to encroach her confine
The courtship on cards
Rejuvenates her youth
Stalwart antagonists too
Forfeit without a feud

Zephyr …docile
Streets…shaken off its slumber
The response is crude
The mitigating market
Nonchalantly prognosticate
Incoming floods of
Succulent gothic and glaze

indian politics

Gather my country men

This ain’t no ordinary lesson

No raving Barbies, no ranting kens

Just a discourse on Indian rapscallions


Yet again .Mr. L.Yadav

Our local scum bag

Has gotten away

With his insidious tag

With Bihar assembly dissolved

Democracy stalled

The states on the dole

And he yet manages to brag

The RSS and the VHP

Flamboyantly crusade

Advanni endorses nascent policies

And BJP enervates

A fortnight later the platter

Is yet again flayed

As the shysters of NDA revert

Ayodhya gets back the freight

Manmohan Singh is busy convincing media

“Its he who governs”

Sonia in her staid accent

Manages to churn

Powerful rhetoric orations

Her Indian kids can’t learn

Endures left’s barbarism

And RJP’s tarrism

And Maneka’s and Varun’s familiarism

Yet UPA stays unburned

BHEL sell off gets scanty

Broadcast seconds to engage

But SRK meeting Sonia

Makes it to the FrontPage

Journalism punch lines

Razzle dazzle dotage

While political daily’s page 3 digests

Becomes the nations latest rage

fairytale part2(end to the ballad)

They say..

the hunter dignified

left the town

and them mystified

so long unacquainted

to heartbreaks t

hey had grown too vain

their fabric fake

now in the face

of misery

reeling from the

dreary mystery

they took to weeping

blaming hevens

and gradually

it dawned on them

so long they had prided

looks alone

jeered countenances

except their own

and now pale thin

with willowy eyes

they looked all

but dainty and nice

and when the season

changed again

spring bloomed

they dint refrain..

played with the girls

on the streets and plains

enjoyed the glee

and enjoyed the rains

fairytale..a ballad(part1)

Oh reader…what do you look for

A poem..a tale ..a dialogue??

Deliver..i will..the sort

That enslaves you…trot trot

There were two lassies

Jenny and jane

Brandishing beauty

And flowing manes

Merchants and shepheards

Drew to their lanes

Showered love and gold

But all in vain

Then came a hunter

Not thin not stout

With bows and arrows

But cupids drought

The bloke he was

Called nimrod of south

But at romance

Dense out an out

Now.. arrived the

Lovers tempest

For nuptials

mayhem and zest

The spring balls

And Wine fests

The country spun a web of its mushy thread

and when the streets saw

the ladies step down

kings offered their carriages

laid out their crowns

they clambered austere

or with a frown

tranquil they rode

to the lavish lounge

while in the fest they saw

the hunter stride

his nonchalance

appealed their pride

in an instant each decided

to be his wife

unaware he was also

the apple of the other’s eyes

in a weaks time

so intoxicated were they l

ove brewed ..then

passion flared

and rest is subject to guesswork raised

what on grapevine was heard

and what evidently remained

and so they met

to confess their love

to the hunter

and each other ..all above


what erupted

was an inferno

like cannons

their furies flowed

its been three

decades since then

the haunted house

speaks of when

the wrath devoured

the two maidens

unblemished alone now

are the tales of the haven

Dreams unheard

Built, braced, broken
Ambitions, ashes, tokens
Infinity, speck, stolen
Soar, splinters, spoken

Destiny, dreams, triggers
Conduit, cremate, stupor
Stoic, stumble, shatter
Oblivion, trance, deliver

Preliminary fears
Crowd her mind
Seek a gateway
Those tears sublime

Harshly gathering
Around the brow
In crude endevours
Seeking the earth

Gray heavens, rise
Curtain her tears
Let your fury
Drown her fears

Pour down
As she bitterly weeps
Embrace her
Amid all animosity

Europa mythology is old

zeus is now bold

how will you carry her off to Cretes

she says now

her new love is euphrates

how will u carry her off to Cretes

You sing en even song

or bring a hair lock dangling on your face

but how will you carry her off to cretes.

You sing lyrics to the tune of lure

or you bring her hot dried prumes

a primrose is not all that she needs....

go bring her some bracelets and beeds

and if she's not happy with all that

I tell you..........better smell the rat

either your love is inextricable

or her beauty is inexplicable

you are soooo infatuated

your conscience is not accurated

your hair have already begun to gray...........

so Europa how will you carry her off to Cretes
