The Harbingers of Joy

Across the streams of livelihood
With silent wings by the side,
Slides the simple creature
Into the passage of time.

An accidental glance at the beholder’s plight,
Ends a spell of perennial drought.
And showers incessant droplets,
Completing the loop with another naught.

As the nature prides itself
With riches out of one’s way,
Oblivious is the harbinger,
Who is just drifting through another day.

The Liebster Award

wpid-wp-1446136883684

Hello! πŸ™‚
I’ve been nominated for “The Liebster Award” by a wonderful bloggerΒ Muskan. Thanks a lot for the nomination, Muskan & sorry for being a bit late.
So, according to the rules, I have to state eight random facts about me & then answer a bunch of questions asked by her.

Eight random facts about me:-

1. I am a 21 years old graduate working in a manufacturing company in Pune that produces automotive parts among many other things.

2. I am a huge music loving person & I am a big fan of rock bands such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Poets of The Fall, Linkin Park, Coldplay, One Republic & many many others. And, I think their lyrics inspire me to write. I also like musicians such as Shankar Ehsan Loy, Salim Sulaiman, A.R.Rehman, Amit Trivedi, etc. In a nutshell, I like songs of almost every kind.

3. I love to sing (to myself generally). I was the lead singer of our college band which we called “The Broken Sticks” (because our drummer used to break a lot of drumsticks while practicing). Sadly, we all went different ways after college and now I miss them a lot.

4. I can’t stand when people waste food. And every time someone throws food off their plates in front of me, I end up giving him/her a free lecture. I don’t know why I do that.

5. I love watching movies of all genres. I currently have around 50 “to watch movies” which I don’t know when I’ll watch.

6. I am quiet at first but if you know me, I won’t let you be quiet & will constantly annoy you with pj’s , mimicries, caricatures and all. I like to join two entirely different situations and then crack jokes on the combo.

7. I am a huge huge fan of F.R.I.E.N.D.S and Chandler is my idol πŸ˜› . I mean I dream of cracking utterly sarcastic jokes with the best timing, like him, someday.

8. I love Agatha Christie novels and each time I finish one, I wonder how the hell could she think that much. It’s unbelievable. For the same reason, I love Sidney Sheldon too.

(Hang On! There’s more)

The questions asked are:-

1. How many books have you read till date? Which is your favorite?
A: I’m not sure but maybe 30-35 books. MY favorite book(s) are:- To Kill A Mocking Bird, Pride & Prejudice, The Godfather, And Then There Were None, The Devotion of Suspect X and Harry Potter series (obviously). I’m sorry to have mentioned more than one name. πŸ™‚

2. Which song is the most played on your playlist right now?
A: Right now, it’s an instrumental acoustic guitar piece called “Can You Stop The Rain” by Les Sabler. It’s a magical piece. Here it is for those who are interested:- Β Can You Stop The Rain

3. Have you ever been stalked? Like in real life?
A: Haha..nice question. But I haven’t been yet, unfortunately. Had I been stalked, me and my stalker would definitely be friends by now. πŸ˜›

4. What is your deepest desire?
A: To have my own studio where I’ll hold jamming sessions. I wrote a poem actually regarding this desire of mine :-Β A Place For My Tunes

5. Are you a better speaker or listener?
A: It depends on the situation I’m in. I can be both or neither one of them sometimes.

6. Which F.R.I.E.N.D.S character do you relate yourself to the most?
A: I think I relate to Joey and Chandler both. Joey, because of my love towards food and mouth watering dishes and Chandler because I love to crack jokes (although not as good as Mr. Perry has done as Chandler).

7. A memorable quote?
A: There was a movie called “Shawshank Redemption”. In that movie, there was a quote something like this:- “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing should ever die”. This line, esp in reference to the movie, is just amazing.

8. A girl you had the biggest fight with months ago turns out of the blue and behaves like nothing happened. What do you do?
A: I guess I’ll ignore her at first but then I’ll get back to normal depending upon her response. Seriously speaking, I don’t know what I’ll do because my fights don’t last longer than a day.

So, here were the answers. I guess I did not make anyone fall asleep by such a long post. And Muskan, I hope the answers were up to the mark. And thanks again for nominating me.. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

So, thank you for reading and Happy Diwali everyone!! Be safe and enjoy! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

The Drifter’s Dilemma

image
Rose in the air,
The fumes of victory.
After deserts and despair,
Fields green, finally.

Clear blue sky,
Soothing wind playing.
An alluring lie,
Or stars shining?

A divine soul appears,
An angel without disguise.
All sorrow clears
By those enchanting eyes.

Mesmerised by the beauty,
A drifter, a wanderer,
Losing his sanity?
Forgetting his nature?

With eyes blinking,
He tried to decide.
The turbulent drifting?
Or the tranquil side?

Being a drifter,
He chose to stride.
“Why?”, asked the nature.
The curiosity could not hide.

Replied the drifter :-
“I drift through the dark
To put on a flight.
A necessary part,
To appreciate the light.”

For Nature!!
