The Never Ending Summer



                                                           The Joy of Summer!


Every summer morning I wake up and start preparing myself for the hot day ahead. I hunt for the cool,breezy prints in my wardrobe that make me feel light and comfy :) I slide my feet in my favorite pair of 'chaps'(chappals :p ), put on my sun glasses and say 'hello' to the sun!

Somehow I don't find myself complaining about the sweltering heat and the sweaty days! Somewhere,I know I love summers.

Yes,summers in Delhi are killing! You feel as if you're sitting right on a burning gas stove at times!

Yet,there's something about this season that I like..

It makes me feel free.. Free from the burden of endless layers of clothes that I have to pile on in winters. It gives me a sense of time that is long lasting;I can go on counting the months on my fingers and tell myself 'I have time'..It's so wonderful to hear the chirping of the birds from morning to evening. I wonder if I ever notice that during winters :p


But the best part is when after a long, hot day, you enter home.You reach home to realize that the day isn't over yet. You can still see the bright sky and you still have time...and the time demands more and more.

More work, more play,more talking, more walking..


Summer brings with itself a sense of longevity. A feeling that all the summer sweat is worth a long night's sleep..

And beyond a point it's not about enjoying the air conditioner or cooler. No! Summer teaches you so much more.

The sun says "I'm hot!Can you face me?" And we say yes! So we wear our coolest possible clothes,the trendiest sunglasses,caps and umbrellas, chilled out footwear and we're ready to roll!



The moon says "Hey! I may not be that cool after all!" But we still enjoy our summer nights :) Sometimes adding a dash of cold coffee,ice creams etc makes us value the summer even more! 



And not to forget the most valuable aspect of summer-water! Can we manage without it ?I say no!


Summer is never ending because by the time it paves the way for a glorious (and sometimes chilling to the bone) winter, we have become more patient,resilient and tactful.

In fact,summer makes you realize the importance of winters as well! Summer vacations?
Who goes to a cold place in winters? But here come summers and off we go to some cool,breezy and cold place!

Seasons are the way they are because they're meant to teach us something.


If everyday,you can look up at the sun and tell yourself that you will brave out this crazy heat; you have achieved something wonderful within. 

Because when winter comes,the season has changed and the long,never ending summer has made you stronger, more patient and may be so much more.

So before we decide to hide into our cocoons to save ourselves from the biting winter chill, let's make the most of this freedom and time that summer brings along!

The Edge of the world

Standing at the edge of my world...


You pull,I pull back
You push,I push back
You kick,I kick back...
Everything you do to me,I do it back..
Sometimes less,sometimes more..

They say you're called life..
I say it too
Sometimes I love,
Sometimes I abhor..

I don't know what you want from me;
Where do you want me to go..
What do I do to live you..and not let you go

You've pushed me and pushed me so much;
I have no feet left to stand.
Yet,I'm standing at the edge of my world
Wondering where I am...

I can fall back or I can fall down,
Either way I fall
And fall I will-strong and hard
Only to wake up to your call...

Walking with the shadows



                                                Walking with the shadows

I walk with the shadows
That once breathed.
I hold their hand and
keep moving on...
As if they exist;
As if they still talk to me...like they did before
I walk with them,
Like they walked with me before.

Of course I've moved on
I moved on long ago.
I just like to hold their hand and keep walking..
I just like to listen to them and keep talking..
Because they still exist
And I walk with them
Like I walked with them before.

I moved on;
But couldn't let go
So I held onto their shadows
Because I couldn't let go.
Those empty spaces in my heart,
Just; wouldn't let me part.
So I created shadows more and more
And kept walking with them,
Like I did before....
