For every love that fails, remember there was a lover who thought you might succeed together. Even if that mistaken, misguided lover was you. Live that poor soul’s life for a full minute each time you fall down the memory hole.

The What-if Shop

There is a little known corner in that place in your mind where Nostalgia resides. In it, a ramshackle hut bears the name, ‘What-if Shop’. If you brave the journey to find that place, you find it stocked in incomplete wishes, unfulfilled desires and half-remembered dreams.

The What-if Shop stands true, even as life places hurdles in your way. He who wears out a clear path to this place, lives forever in a life lit by an unknown lamp. The shop places no prices on its wares. The What-if Shop is hard to find but it rewards its patrons well.

Roadster

A road is a blank page that allows you to be an artist with your feet.

Paint it with your eyes
Taint it with your stories

PUSHY

Your identity is not contained in a box called a label. It’s a force that grows, pulsates, pushes. Constantly, till you are dead. And it starts when you’re being born.

Push. Push, now.

Chai, kaapi ya main? 

In a land long divided on choice of hot beverages, it took an outsider to make one more popular. A lot has happened over kaapi among the chai-drinkers.

What’s your poison?

Saffron Stories

This pen has no more ink to spill
when stories are being written
in blood running down streets.

Come Out When You Please

Who says only gay folks live in a closet?

We’re breaths constrained by fear, worry and pain. Every leap of faith is a coming out story. But it’s okay if you want to stay indoors. I know slow suffocation can be preferable to the reckless unknown.

I know you’re in there.
But I won’t out you.

The Word SHOULD

The word SHOULD
is a stick that stains red
and claims its territory
over bruises, tears and
a scratched up childhood.

A Love Letter

A page, beautifully illustrated and beginning with a calligraphed word in old English, bearing thoughts of deep affection and sentiments of unshakeable faith.

Or even just a handwritten note, torn from an old copy book, covered in scrawls and doodles, barely able to contain their excitement and need.

I lie in eternal wait, for a love letter from the universe.
