Dream night


I slept one night with positive vibes.

Dream came with negative vibes.

My entire structure collapsed.

It was difficult to find way to survive.

I saw myself struggling a lot.

Trying to build a new plot.

Construction started with full effort.

That also vanished due to a sudden storm.

There was nothing left to gain.

I was suffering with severe pain.

Crying from inside and outside.

I was fighting in my dream night.

Left alone in the curse of life.

I was finding some ray of light.

Barking words coming from everywhere.

Nothing is left anywhere.

Humanity killed and humans are alive.

That’s the real world I must realize.

People won’t be sympathetic.

Better I should become pragmatic.

Suddenly I woke up from my dream.

Surprised to know what I saw in the dream.

Dream gave me one lesson.

Don’t give up but fight with your passion.

What I learnt is what I shared.

Dream taught me which I should care.

It was a nice morning looking at the rising sun.

Learning to move ahead with hope of none.

Humans have forgotten humanity.

Sorry to say but that’s the reality.

I saw that dream long ago.

It gave me courage to go and get go.

The dream which I saw that night,

where I was fighting in my dream night.

It became my dream night which gave me courage to fight.

Dawn to dusk…


Coming from dawn to dusk.

Life seems sometimes like dust.

Few incidents have ever lasting impact.

It’s difficult to keep things intact.

What to do and what not?

How to remove the challenging knot?

Twists and turns are coming around.

Choice has to be made…

Either to face or leave the ground.

Quiting is not the solution it seems.

Better to face it to fulfill the dream.

Darkness will be here and there.

Light will definitely emerge somewhere.

Once decided, better to go ahead.

Not required to waste time by scratching the head.

What will happen will happen.

This doesn’t make life misshapen.

Consistent effort is required from dawn to dusk.

That will eradicate the dust.

While facing the struggles and challenges.

One may think of losing the patience.

And life may seems like dust.

Consistent effort is required from dawn to dusk.

That will eradicate the dust.

Welcome 2019


A warm welcome to the new year, 2019. As we have entered into a new year, I hope everything goes well with everyone in this new year. Just wanted to wish all of you a very happy new year. May God fulfill all your upcoming desires in this year with smiling faces. 🤗😅

One of the important aspects of the new year is to make a new year resolution and I have always failed in making the same. Every year, my new year resolution remains the same i.e to make a new year resolution. Confused? 🙄🤔 I have always failed in making new year resolution and hence on every new year eve, my new year resolution is to make a new year resolution. 😕😏 But this year my wish is to work on my novel and complete it and I am hopeful of doing so. 🤗

Once again, I wish all of you a very happy new year. Do share your new year resolution or wish which you want to accomplish. God bless you all. Stay tuned for my posts… 😊😃

Oh my dear…


Roses are red.
The sky is blue.
Oh my dear…
I think, I love you.

Mind is fresh.
The day I saw you.
Oh my dear…
I think, I do love you.

You make me feel joy.
We both enjoy.
You became my life.
I became your life.
This reason is enough.
For both of us to survive.
How this happened?
I have no clue.
Oh my dear…
I love you.

The day you entered in my life.
Life became more than a life.
You wanted to become my wife.
I realized, it was a lie.
When you stared at me.
Scolded brutally and badly.
I understood, everything was illusion.
Made me to go in depression.
Both were happy as the time passed.
I now realize, you were doing time pass.
Playing is good but not with heart.
At the end, it surely hurts.
Heart broke and soul collapsed.
You are not the right one, I did realized.
Collected the broken pieces of heart.
As it stuck like glue.
Oh my dear…
I hate you.
I do hate you…

What if you have to take a retake.
Mistakes are part of live.

Book Review – An Ode to Life – Tajammul Kothari



Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

Poetry is an art and when you pen down your emotions, feelings and experience with words which can be related to the readers, you become an artist. Writers write in different genre and each has its own style and taste. This blog post is about one of my blogger friend who gave me a chance to go through his debut book titled, “An Ode to Life” containing his collection of poems. My friend Tajammul Kothari is the author of this book and it takes me immense pleasure to write the review for his debut book. I would also like to express my apologies to him as I am writing this book review post after one half years of publication as I was quite involved with my studies and other aspects. Apologies for the same Tajammul. The writer is available at his blog titled Worldly Realization. Kindly visit his blog for his beautiful work.

For all poem lovers including me, this book, An Ode to Life is a gem and is a collection of poems that highlights the different stages in the journey of life. Life has many layers and this book contains several poems depicting different stages of life. The writer has even written a thank you poem titled “A Big Thank you” to all the readers which is a lovely read and I really liked this. The book contains beautiful literary pieces with simple words and in a lucid manner. I firmly believe the one who read will definitely find it worth. The book contains poems of various genres like inspirational, romantic, sad etc. The writer in depth can be seen from an extract of his poem ,“The Road” which says:

 A long winding road called life

In each and every turn there is a surprise

Bright paths to guide you aright or

Dark alleys that hinder your sight

The book also contains romantic poems. I became really impressed the way he has expressed love in one of his poem titled “Love is to Stay” which says:

You can pierce a dagger deep inside

And break this feeble heart of mine

You can kill me with your words unkind

But you can’t murder the love

The sentence “You can’t murder love” is more than enough to say what love is. This is amazing and you will find many such kind of poems with beautiful stanzas in his book and I am sure you will love it. Poetry has its own taste and this book is really worth to read.

The book is available at following:

I would like to congratulate him for getting his work published and also like to thank him for giving me an opportunity to go through his literary pieces and I hope he will continue to offer the readers with his beautiful work in future as well in the form of his writing.

मैं रोया तो नहीं …


मौसम के अलग अलग मिज़ाज़ मे.
ज़िंदगी के हर उतार चढ़ाव मे.
औरों के घाव को मरहम लगते हुए.
और खुद के घाव पे नमक छिड़कते हुए.
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
दिल ऐसा टूटा की टुकड़े भी ना मिले.

राहों मे अंधेरों का सामना करते हुए.
औरों के दुखों को मिटाते हुए.
खुद को खेलने का प्रयोगशाला बनाते हुए.
सब धोखों को झेलते हुए.
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
बनावटी इस दुनिया मे हम अकेले पर गये.

शोर के इस वातावरण मे.
ज़िंदगी ने ज़हर ऐसा उगला.
मौत भी मुँह मोर कर चली गयी.
पर उस वक़्त मैं ना पिघला.
आँखों की लालिमा करती है कुछ इशारे.
दफ़ना दो उन ख्वाबों को जो नहीं हैं हमारे.
आवाज़ों के बाज़ारों मे खामोशी पहचानता कोई नहीं.
जो होना था वो हो गया बस अब और नहीं.
रह गया उस मंज़र और इस मंज़र मैं, अकेला.
चलो बनता हू इक दुनिया जो होगा रंगीला.
पर उस वक़्त…
मैं रोया तो नहीं पर आँसू निकल पड़े.
हम दिल पर पत्थर रख , किसी और दिशा चल दिए.
