Migration to a Self-hosted Site

migration

Hello,

With the love and support of all my readers, each one of YOU, I have decided to take my creative writing and blogging to a new level by moving my blog to a self-hosted website. This will give me more flexibility in terms of what I can do with my blog. I will also be able to experiment more, which I thoroughly enjoy and hopefully you will too. 🙂

So, if you are following me here already, you may like continue to do the same at my new blog tejasjani.com through the follow button on the sidebar.

You will not get the feed of my new posts in the wordpress reader unless you have subscribed to the new blog. So do it right away by visiting this link.

Do visit my new blog, which is essentially the same old fun place, just potentially a lot better. Hopefully, it will live up to you expectations and beyond. Keep your suggestions, reviews and comments coming at the new place. So see you there!

Keep the love coming. As you know, it is my ink.  Cheers!

– Tejas Jani

What else is life than

sun rays penetrating through

dense clouds day to day.


 

Grab Your Star

While the world keeps trying to find equilibrium between good and evil with each passing day, my little one, you will continue growing up. It is inevitable.

As you grow up, nothing will change if YOU don’t. And everything will change, if YOU do.

There would be numerous things which you love as a kid today and the same things will end up turning boring as you grow up. Don’t let it happen. Loving something should not change just because years are added to your life. Let the child remain alive in you. Keep loving the stuff you love today. Enjoy playing in the sandpit even when you have your own little one decades down the line.

It may sound absurd if I tell you today that what you are inside will eventually end up being what you are surrounded with. It is a fact. The world is what we, as humanity, do on day to day basis. You do your bit and the others will follow. It is a little complicated than what I am making it sound here though. Continue reading “Grab Your Star”

Honey bee flying

around the garden all day

for the queen supreme.


 

Imperfect?

Armless like a snake

I may seem helpless but did

you forget my sting?

Things turned upside down

Thank You (and Sorry)!

Honestly, I don’t believe in numbers. However, some numbers mean a little more than my not believing in numbers and a little more than mere digits. This number is one of those.

Out of the daily hassle and tussle with the world and within, when something comes up like a ray of sunshine amid dense jet black clouds, it deserves due appreciation and a bow of respect. This blog has been that ray for me. Continue reading “Thank You (and Sorry)!”

Facing a Wall

Looking straight ahead with grit and grace.
Still why nothing seems in sight?
Sun is shining right above your head,
Still, nothing is visible. Why is there no light?

Jack and Jill # 20


Jill: Hey, let’s go shopping.

Jack: Sure. Where?

Jill: Umm… I was thinking… Shoppers Stop?

Jack: Umm… or.. Westside?

Jill: But Shoppers Stop has a great Sale going on.

Jack: No. Still, Westside. Please?

Jill: Westside doesn’t have discounts.

Jack: I know. But, they have chairs.

In her love, feeling

just like a helpless spider

trapped in his own web.


 

Be the Key

The key, while entering a lock, does not know if she is meant for him.

Still, she goes in and tries to unlock what he is holding tight inside. She tries to release the shackles. She goes in with a hope of setting him free.

Even when she fails, she at least tries to alter some levers. She tries to bring some change inside him. She may not succeed in setting him totally free but she makes him believe that she tried to get him out of that situation. Continue reading “Be the Key”

Dry leaf left the tree

where it belonged all its life.

Inevitable.


 

Puff of Peace

A lone puff of cloud like a tiny cotton bud floats by my sight to break my concentration as I stare blankly at the otherwise cool blue spotless sky.

The cloud tries to break my will to not focus on anything. It charms me with its nothingness.

I feel captivated and my vision pans with it.

Slowly, softly, but consistently.

The teeny cloud swings on the magic carpet of the breeze and before I know, it starts scattering into bits. Tiny, tinier and even tinier bits.

Within moments, while my sight still tries to keep a track of the cloud, its snow whiteness vanishes into the blueness of the sky as if it never was. But still I know it is there. Right there. And with scattered pieces, it is there more than it ever was.

The puff of peace leaves me enchanted.

Why dive in the sea

called the world, when the pearl is

buried right within?

While I’m as empty,

I’m as versatile too as

an awesome eglaf.


 

Let it Go

Silly is the word for you, my dear self.
You’ve got to listen to me if you need help.
You hang on to things which don’t matter,
or, at least, which don’t matter anymore.
Sham hopes and cunning mirage, you adore.

You tax in staying stuck to what repeals you.
How are we going to move on together
unless we listen to each other
and reach to an agreement
that whatever happens, happens for good.
There is not point staying glued.

Bliss. Growing up by

a serene river flowing

down the mountain hill.
