‘I Die Every Day.’

Said My Shirt as I Hung Him

By Neck Behind Door.

Shadow of Sunshine

What would You Get
By Going Beyond
What is Expected of You, They Asked?
What would You Gain
By Giving Away
Your Time and Love, They Asked?

I Am the Giver.
I Am the Healer.
Of the Smiles,
I’m Blanket Dealer.

I’m Just of that Sort, You Know,
I Don’t Mind Taking
The Longer Lines
To Kill Your Whines.

My Sleep Goes for Toss

When You Touch My Mind Just Like

Tap Dripping Water.

I’d No Clue how Cool

I’d Look as Bald till She Glued

Chewing Gum in My Hair.


With Fluttering Wings
As if He Owned the Sky,
A Teensy-Weensy
Jubilant Butterfly,
Keen to Spot
Someone to Love
In the Backyard
Of My Grange
Alighted On a Flower

Beauty is Often

Discontent in Disguise. Ask

Lone Cloud in Blue Sky.

Life Threw Crap at Me

I Simply Smiled and Showed Life

What I Had. Yes. YOU!

Shaktiman – Meghdhanush : Something Fun

Hardly any Indian child who grew up in the 90’s does not know who Shaktiman is. If you belong to that generation, I need to say no more. But, if you don’t, I would elaborate a bit for you, with pleasure. I am the kind kind of a guy, you know. 😉

Shaktiman (which translates as ‘Powerful’) was a Hindi weekly serial to telecast in the 90’s on the Indian National Television when Digital Media was mostly just about that.

Shaktiman would remain in disguise generally and fight evil in the society. Spiderman. Batman. Same strategy, you know already. Thanks to his superpowers and trademark spin to fly from one place to the other (with the whooff whooff sound and fascinatingly funny visual effects), Shaktiman pretty much managed to get better of Tamraj Kilvish, the chief of the evils.

Days When I’m Blue are

The Days When You are Away.

Mere Happenstance, Not.

My Words Fumble as

I Write a Poem on Your

Eyes, Ineffable.


Dressed in Suit for Others I Groom,
In the Cozy Board Room,
I Picked the Red, Cherry Red, Marker,
I Gazed at it and Uncapped.
As the Tip Touched
The Snow White Board,
The Little Naughty Child
Inside Me, Roared,
The Whirling Smell
Of this Pen is Nowhere
Close to the Dope,
When I’d Hide
Behind the Door
And Lick my
White Chalk Stick.

Before I Knew

Wishes are Called Wishes
Because They Don’t Come True.
The Myth or the Truth, Whatever,
That’s all I Knew, All the Way Through.
