I held you in my hands
while you were sleeping
I looked at your face
and thought
how lucky I am.

I wish I could see
your dreams
and hoped
you were smiling in sleep
dreaming about me.

I removed the hair
falling on your face.
I moved
my hands on your body
engulfing it
as river embodies
into the sea.

I want
the time to stop.
Make the moment immortal
Let me absorb
the weight of your body
against mine.

Tomorrow will be another day
So sleep with me
My Love
Lay against my shoulders
Let's join the pieces
of our puzzle.
Let's make a postcard picture
A picture we both believe in!

The bittersweet symphony

I breathe
the air you breath
I share the dream
you dream.
I live the life
you want me to lead.

I walk the path
you carved for me.
I dance on music
you play for me.
I drink
the glass you poured for me.

I hear
the words you tell me.
I speak
the words you like to listen.
I sense
the words you are about to say.

Entwined in our lives
enveloped in the
sweet perfume of memories
The bittersweet symphony
of two people
living each others dreams.

Union Carbide Case Verdict : A Mockery!

25 years later when a verdict is passed and justice is denied, you are forced again to think about how corrupt and infested can Indian judiciary system be.

Union carbide case pending for last 25 years passed shameful verdict on 7th June 2010 for 2 years of imprisonment and fine of $2000 for all the accused. This has been  the justice given for the largest industrial catastrophe on the face of the earth. Whom are we trying to appease here? Why even bother for case verdict? Let the case remain a bouncing ball in the hollow walls of Indian courts. The judgment seems to have more aftermaths than the tragedy itself.

How disgraceful and appalling is this verdict? More than 25000 people dead within few days of tragedy and and more than 500,000 affected. You are even left speechless to think of the amount of injustice done. Is this a joke or mockery that the courts play on common people? I am completely failing to understand as to how can this happen. I cannot even phantom the outrage of the people who have been directly affected in this case. Not in my memory I can recall a single incidence when we think that Indian judiciary system has acted swift and done justice.

How can we continue living in this ailing society? What can we do as common man who is nothing but a puppet in the hands of Indian politicians, corruption and judiciary system? How can we talk big words about India Inc, progressive modern India society when we cannot sustain basic human rights in this country.

I am a very proud Indian and these are exactly the situations that make me re-think when human life has no value in this nation. I feel ashamed and disillusioned myself at the sorry state of affairs that this great nation is in wherein the country judiciary system is so corrupted and in the hands of few industrialists. 

What do you think now at the end : we will wait for justice to be done or nothing can happen and things will remain as they are in the modern India ! Again we begin the process for appeals to higher courts and spending another quarter of century waiting for justice to be rendered to the innocent victims! What a  mockery!

Timeless shadows

I want to penetrate the shadows
lurking in the dark
merge with them
and make them vanish.

I see them everywhere
following my every footstep.
Waiting to pounce on me
and take me to the
lands of faraway.

I wait and watch
wanting to be overpowered
to be taken away
in sweet perfume of my
to the age of no regrets.

I dream
of alternative past
keep changing in my head
various permutations.
I open my eyes
and all I see
is shadows hanging
in front of me.
