Once Upon a Time


Once upon a time, everything was normal.
Startling arrival of Corona, life became abnormal.
Once upon a time, we used to chill.
Startling arrival of Corona, fast moving life came to stand still.
Everyone is expecting to get back to normal life.
“Life is not willing to get back to normal,” it seems.
Enough precaution required for everyday survival.
Corona virus is the latest and biggest rival.
Once upon a time, roaming here and there was habit.
“Quarantine” is the general concept, due to COVID.
Once upon a time, weekend enjoyment was at peak.
Sudden arrival of Corona, enjoyment is now weak.
Let’s hope for that “Once upon a time” to come soon.
We all are waiting for that noon…

Very few…



Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

The playground of life is crucial.
Attack from every side is sometimes lethal.
Fear of outcome always stops from being creative.
Willingly or unwillingly, majority become defensive.
All are moving and following the crowd.
At the end, most are lost in the crowd.
Life is no more peaceful in this chasing world.
Noise and pain are the main glimpses of this world.
Everyone pretends to be fully intelligent.
That’s the root cause of situation becoming belligerent.
Being calm and polite is rare characteristics of humans.
Outrageous nature can be easily found in humans.
“I know everything” is the general and acceptable truth.
But looking at the other side, lies the bitter truth.
“Very few” people know that they really know “very few”…

Usual to Unusual…

Everything in life was going normal.
Just like “Business as Usual.”
Morning to evening and till night.
Every day was like a fight.
Weekend was one which we used to like and wait.
As it was a formal way to take a break.
Exploring nearby and far places in the vicinity.
Provided a way to find serenity.
Going out was a normal course of business.
Be it for work, tea/kulhar or tapri tea, shopping or movie.
Our face used to thrill with positive expression.

The freedom of roaming here and there no more lasts.
As the world suddenly suffered the “Corona” blast.
Weather of world has changed in startled way and direction.
Work from home and social distancing is the new evolution.
Life is no more “usual” now.
Surviving in this pandemic is the priority now.
We don’t know how much it will last.
As the world is suffering from the “Corona” blast.
Life is no more “business as usual.”
As life has changed suddenly from “usual to unusual”.
As life has changed suddenly from “usual to unusual”.

Corona Virus – Pandemic


PC: Google

World is under clouds of coming depression.
Mankind is currently facing stiff corona situation.
The battle between death and survival.
Featuring the startling pandemic arrival.
Arrival of a deadly disease across the globe.
Corona virus has shattered all the hope.
Who will survive nobody knows?
How many will die we rarely know?
Let’s be alert in our day to life.
To make Corona die.
It’s a pandemic we must realize.
Follow the lock-down in order to survive.
Being impatient will never serve the corona battle.
On the contrary, it won’t allow corona to settle.
There are many who carry the “hubris” attitude.
It’s time to bury such “debris” attitude.
Pandemic occurs rarely but shatters many.
Bringing clouds of fear, depression and many.
Let’s pray to almighty to normalize the current scenario.
Mankind must stand again to bring another portfolio.
Awareness, alertness and discipline are required in this pandemic.
Everyone should come together and not panic.
We can win this battle of corona jointly.
This cannot be curbed personally.
Some are playing filthy regional and religious politics.
They must remember…
The virus attacks without caste, creed, region and religion.
Everyone should unite…
Irrespective of their caste, creed, region and religion.

कोरोना, तांडव करो न…


दुनिया में आयी एक ऐसी महामारी |
हर जगह मच गयी त्राहि त्राहि |
मानव हो रहे बेचैन और परेशान |
एक सूख्म जीव ने कर दिया विश्व को हैरान |
खतरों से खेलने वाले आज खतरे में हैं |
लाखों लोग इस से प्रभावित हो रहे हैं |
कहते हैं इसे जग में कोरोरना |
अब और तांडव मत करो न |

PC: Google

इस महामारी का अब तक कोई तोड़ नहीं |
कितनों को ले डूबेगी पता नहीं |
अचाननक शुरू हुई जुंग कब ख़त्म होगी ?
कोरोना से राहत कब मिलेगी ?
लाशों का अम्बार लगा दिया इसने |
इटली, स्पेन, इंग्लैंड और अमेरिका में |
समझ नहीं आ रहा ये सब क्यों हुआ ?
चीन से शुरू हुआ और विश्व को बर्बाद किया |
कौन ज़िम्मेदार है इस भयावह नज़ारे की |
लाशों का ढेर है खरीददार कोई नहीं |
ज़मीन काम पर रही लाशों को दफ़नाने में |
रूहें काँप रही हैं इस खौफनाक मंज़र में |
कहते हैं इसे जग में कोरोना |
अब और तांडव मत करो न |

PC: Google

कुछ बुद्धिजीवों को इकॉनमी की पड़ी है |
लोग मर रहे हैं उनकी सुध नहीं है |
धंधे में नुक्सान की पड़ी है |
आर्थिक इस्थ्ती तो फिर से सुधर जाएगी |
इंसान बचेंगे तभी इकॉनमी रहेगी |
कालाबाज़ारी में मुनाफे की दुकान चला रहे हैं कुछ |
इंसानियत भूल कर अनाज का कत्लेआम कर रहे हैं कुछ |
लड़ाई लम्बी है और लड़ना है |
साथ मिल के इस जंग को जीतना है |
ईश्वर से यही प्राथना है …
कहते हैं इसे जग में कोरोना |
अब और तांडव मत करो न…
