Kahwa (कहवा)

अर्सों हो गए एक कप गरमा-गरम कहवा पिए हुए,उस अंगीठी के आगे-पीछे बैठे हुएऔर अपने दिलों को हल्का किये हुए! वो कहानियां भीन जाने कहाँ गुम सीहो गयी,जिन्हें कहवे के घूंट संग पीते थेमानो वह चीनी से नमक हो गयी! उस कहवे में क़ैद दिलों की गर्माहट थीअब तो जैसे…

The lanes that don’t call us back!

Few years back, we had left our homes in pursuit of newer and bigger things, achievements we called them then, compulsions we may call them now, if so? We never knew we would leave those lanes (narrow howsoever they were) for broader pathways that are…


The Sparrow that Whispers

Long time ago (20years to be precise), that green eyed boy Was always caught with what he did to the lunch-box Ate, shared or clandestinely threw it in the bin What amazed him was How each bit of it, of what happened in the school…
