Blind Love



For Love to exist sense is more important than it's sight !! Not signed in


They kept walking with every step carefully placed

the world around them was in its own mess.

Their paths were different along different streets,

but their destination was one where they decided to meet.


Slowly and steadily he walked his way,

With a tinge of fear she made her way.

The crowd of people pushed him front and back,

the sounds of the audience made her feel of getting a pack.


The sun was high up but the road was dark for him,

The clouds had cleared still she found a glooming thing.

The beauty of nature had escaped his eyes,

The only thing which mattered to her was the beauty in his sight.


With trembling hands he held the stick,

for what he feared he might miss the street.

With a hand on wall she sensed the rocky surface,

making her realize she was on the right trace.


With a ticking sound their sticks collided,

the destination was reached as it was decided.

He held her tight and sat on a bench,

she kept her hand in hand and sensed his face.


The love was real, as they were special indeed

they never saw each other, but still cared in every deed.

The thing which God gave us all still we never cared it right


These are all the most fortunate people living around us, whom God has sent to help us learn. To love through our inner senses and soul irrespective of the outer beauty, it’s time for us to look in the inner person which our eyes may not see.

Inhi rahoon par.. (On this path..)



(**Translation available)

Chalte ja rahe the un raho par,

kabhi jinhe piche chod aye the,

har mode jo nayi rah thi pehle,

aaj ek fasana ban gaya hai.



Jo nazar me na aye use toh dekha nahi jata,

lekin koi nazare churaye toh lakh dhunde nahi dikhta.

Kehne ko labzz hai magar woh nnahi jinhe kahe,

agar aa jaye woh pass toh labzz bhi kam pad jaye.



Jise dekhte hi ye ankhe khil uthti thi hamesha,

aaj unhi se nazare chura rahi hai apni hi ichha.

Kya gum hai unme unhe hi khabar,

aaj hume batane me itrati hai

agar puch lo unhe zara dantkar,

toh apne aap bhar ati hai.



Jis gali se guzre toh parchaye tumhari lipati thi,

aaj unhi rahoon ne hume parchaiyoonse begana kar dia.

Kya kami thi hamare pyaar me joh aap samajh na paye,

hum toh hume hi koste rahe ke hum unhe samjha na paye.



Kab tak yun ghumte rahe inhi benakab rahoon me,

age bade ja rahe hai hum apne hi khwaboon me.

Jo mil jaye woh, toh haseen hogi ye zindagi,

agar na bhi mil paye, toh dua me rakhenge unko.



Ye kahani hai usne likhi

aur hume banaya jiska hissa,

Aye Malik zara ye toh bata de

age kaun khatam karega ye adhura kissa,

Aye Malik zara ye toh bata de

age kaun khatam karega ye adhura kissa !!




**Translation In English


Kept walking on that path,

the one which I had left long back,

Every turn which was a new path earlier

today has become the same story.



Things which eyes can’t see, cannot be caught by sight,

but if someone pretends to hide, couldn’t be caught by any might.

Have many things to tell but the person is absent,

but if she comes close then even vocals will go in absence.



On seeing whom these eyes used to lit up,

today (eyes)have turned shy, solely on thinking of her.

What pain do they carry and what is scaring them to tell,

If I ask them (eyes) annoyingly,

They start pouring again.



Walking on those path, your shadows use to hug me,

today the same street has made me a stranger to your shadows.

What flaw was there in my love which you couldn’t understand,

I kept on cursing myself, that I failed to make you understand.



Till when shall I roam around on these masked streets,

been walking ahead on this in my own weary dreams.

If we meet someday this life would be colorful,

If not in destiny, I will remember you in my prayers and be cheerful.



This story is written by him (God)

and made us its part,

O Lord please do tell me

who will complete the last part,

O Lord please do tell me

who will complete the last part !!

My 1st Girlfriend


She embraced me from the time I was born,

loving me like a hero, she saw me grew tall.

Every place Ma took me with her,

I saw her everywhere watching me and caring over.

I didn’t knew her name till I went in school,

but she still knew what I was doing over.

With growing age I met her often,

and every day she had new things to offer.

I saw her in my train every day to college,

She blushed with those looks when we escaped to the Gates.



Blowing my hair with her sweet breadth and eyes which blinked,

she held me tight and laughed over when we travelled on Sea-link.


Rising with the sun her Beauty was Breathless,

Our nights were sexiest when she wore the Queen’s Necklace.

I spoke to her when I was happy,

and she treated me with a loving Cranky.

I spoke to her when I was alone,

she comforted me relieving every bone.

We created biggest of jokes and laughed out Loud,

we held each other tight in the times of dark clouds.

She loved and never expected in return,

The biggest lesson of life which I ever Learned.

When the time came to leave her she lovingly let me go,

I had her love and tears in eyes as the flight flew over her.

Watching the sea I made a promise to meet her every time,

in every holiday I kept my promise crossing oceans seven at a time.

We still talk over without a phone or a caller,

The bond between us never decreased even a bit smaller.

She has survived major attacks and has been wounded with fire,

but she still lives with growing spirit, giving people a new desire.

She is the one who never sleeps,

and People call her the CITY OF DREAMS !!

Pumping joy and life in lives she isn’t just a notion,

She is not just a name or city, she is a STRONG Emotion.

It's not just a city, It's a Strong Emotion...

She is my love, my 1st Girlfriend and proudly India ki shaan

She is my Beat, she is my Power…She is Mumbai meri jaaan !!

Decades of Love


002_i love you wallpapers

Closing in the morning the weather shined bright,

The guy closed his meeting and the girl was with her bag.

Clutching through the crowds she walked fast,

as the time was less and too little to pass.


He headed downstairs tossing his boss’s  look,

With a fear of getting late he turned around the staired hook.

She watched her way to the junction in hope of a ride,

but to her dismay there wasn’t even one to guide.


Donned in formals he ran across the street,

She was looking exquisite with a purple clutch in the middle of the street.

Hitting on the florist he picked up a few,

with a hope to surprise her hiding a ring covered in dew.


She reached the restaurant with no option but to walk,

booking the table where they had their First talk.

Knowing that guys are always late and with no time to wait,

she ordered a “Latte” like on their first date.


Glancing the corner he saw her amongst the rattle,

it was on 18th when their hearts had chattered.

Silently closing on her he made his move like a cat,

holding her from behind and closing her eyes for no one to look at.


She knew it was him the way he did the first time,

a Decade had passed with love growing every time.

They did this every year to celebrate their anniversary,

with a promise to each other to never create a wary !!

Plant a seed…..


Thanks to today’s morning, I have been thinking about a simple fact of a seed growing and how closely it is related to our journey of LIFE!!


I have been thinking about a simple fact of a seed growing and how closely it is related to our journey of LIFE!!

Since the beginning, we have been cared all over by our lovely parents giving us the cushioning like the soil giving it to the seed. Taking its utmost care and being protective in its growing age. Though the seed later leaves the soil but is still held by it, signifies as we grow we have our own ways and own lives to lead but we are still attached to that force which generates us and cares for us no matter how far we go and that’s our parents.

Adding water gives seed the courage to come out of its comfort zone, start making its base, break its shield and keep on going deep in ground to make a firm base: This role is played well by one’s Teacher/ Guru who makes the child realize his/her potential and strives day and night behind it to help it grow, make a firm base, break its comfort zone and make it ready for the change to face the outside world. (A well-said quote:”Change starts at the end of one’s comfort zone”) An interesting point here is, as the water disappears post doing its work but retains its qualities, the same is the role of a teacher who stands back behind his student and looks at his journey, believing in the child to grow, trains him for the outside world, though he (Teacher)isn’t physically present throughout the journey his teachings are there till the end helping the child grow.

As the plant starts its journey once sprouting out of the ground, it is greeted by the light giving him the direction to grow, to realize its way, mark its journey and create its own significance. Friends, family, relatives, close acquaintances, and bestie’s play this role of helping the seed grow. Friends being the important part as one spends most of the time with them. Again a well said quote “Surround yourself by people who help you grow”.

The incidences in life (good or bad) are like the weather conditions which either create hindrances in the journey of seed, or can even ameliorate it. In each case the seed never decides to go back to the soil, but stands firmly fighting all odds, giving us a lesson of not looking back but to fight our way ahead. Here comes the important part of its roots and the soil, the stronger its roots are, the more it can withstand and grow, similarly the more stronger ones nurturing and teaching’s are the more ahead a child goes.

The best part which I like about the plant comes now of being grounded but with work and strength of reaching the sky. A word each human has to be kept reminded, may your work, success and persona reach sky highs but always be grounded and thankful to the ones and Almighty Lord who helped you grow and make you what you are today, they may not be physically present, but because of them you are what you are today…!!

Happy reading.

(P.S : Was pinched by this thought in morning and decided to pen it, with me as the seed and the people around as my support systems including my lovely bloggers. It took a lot of time to make the image as I was editing over to get the right fit. Hope you all love it.)

The Quote Challenge


Hello, everyone!

Today’s the third and the last day for the Quote Challenge. Thank you, Anjali Soni for nominating me.

The rules:

  1. For three consecutive days, you have to post a quote.
  2. Acknowledge the blogger who has nominated you.
  3. Each day you have to nominate three different bloggers.
  4. Let the bloggers know you have nominated them.


The quote with which I liveby everyday….

Since the beginning of my junior college, as I had my personal experiences, I was stimulated in putting my thoughts in words. With the blessings of and gratitude to God I started writing down my views and opinions keeping them in front of my audience.

The thought seeded in my mind everyday I wake up is to, “Live Today as if its my Last..” and think as if, “I am gonna live forever.” With this quote I can relate to what Sir Lincoln said above.

Making each and every memory count, be it waking up late hurrying behind in search of clothes, going to the bathroom and taking a cold shower (getting the jitters now as I write) then cramming stuff in bag and leaving for work so that you don’t miss the 9am local etc.etc. The above things seem to be desultory but these small things later make you laugh when you sit quietly and  ponder on them. These things along with the planned ones are all part of your beautiful journey called LIFE and enjoying them to the core and way they are is the secret of happiness.

As rightly said age is just a number, a person living 100 years without joy is just a piece of human mass than the one living for 60 years but making most of each day. Your Attitude towards the events is what matters and sets you apart from the crowd who live everyday for the sake of living.

The true joy always lies in giving and seeing someone happy because of you, a feeling can’t be explained but can only be experienced. Believe in giving and Forgiving, as it gives peace to you and the other person as well. As such gestures will make you complete with the universe and serve your prime goal of being on this earth to keep harmony to who all comes in your life and pray for their goodwill. Hence the quote, “Add Life to years and not years to your LIFE.. “

 Many more things to share which I will through my future posts, at present will say seeya till the next time, as my boss is in the next cubicle and is approaching me.(LOL At work presently)….

 Today’s nominee’s are:

One more Prayer


Praying hands

The rain stopped falling today.

All of the clouds seemed to have gone away.

The sun shone bright and clear;

The dew sparkled with glistening, radiant cheer.

Upon each flower, a smile and a touch of laughter appeared.

A song came singing amidst the wind so cool and calm,

Making me remind the view of the pristine palm.

Why then Lord, do I feel such despair?

Feeling overloaded with worldly cares?

Why then O Lord, are my eyes filled with much sorrow and tears?

My heart aches for comfort,

My mind for peaceful refuge through the power of prayer.

Though I have perceived all the beauty around me,

My spirit cries out loudly;

“O Lord I am empty and bare.”

Hoping to hear your sweet voice once again,

I plead in travail.

“Lord cleanse me from all my sins,

and let your Divine light enter in;

Remember me, as I Remember you,

Make me pure and sweet as you.”

Your sweet, forgiving love flows like a river.

Breaking all the barriers of my lonely fear.

Always be with me and hold my soft hands,

So that I can sleep peaceful, on thy shoulder Dear !!

Sense of HOLY touch…



Castles shine on the way uphill,

Stars gracing the sloppy mill,

There came this sound from amongst the hill,

Which shook me over in the daisy grill.

With hard to describe what’s in the mind,

I thought it must have been the person in staying in sill.

The chilling weather kept me freezed,

unable to think I was left in geez.

Those surprising expressions were caught on sight by a

person standing in the Holy light.

Coming closer I felt his sense ;

As if God had come with his Holy presence.

Deeply whispering in my little ears,

It was my God saying cheers.

The sound reverberated in my ears,

His Holy touch on my forehead left me in Joyful tears.

With that happy moment I continued my way,

This time with clear perseverance and a pleasant gay !!

-Viraj Lele

Sip by Sip…



With the winters coming over, I felt the chilling in my room,

Waiting for the night to pass, calling the sun to shine over.

The time went shy and stopped moving,

Causing the degree to fall dip by dip.

On the bed, I lazed down bored,

looking at the clock with 11pm on hold.

The rising winter made things chiller,

It was the time to make it Miller.

A desperate wish of an icejuice popped,

Lickering in my mind, my jaw dropped.

Wearing up the jacket he on feet,

Asking for a drive on the skating street.

With jubilant joy I tossed up on bed,

remembering the day, that his Treat was left.

On the shy night we drove past snow,

Killing the cold and punching my low.

On the edge of kirby in came ‘Sonic’

We drove the car as if in panic.

He ordered at once my favourite Oreo shake,

SIP BY SIP I relished it, giving him a gaze.

Putting the car on top gear, We drove back home,

With heart filled joy we enjoyed the Chiller !!

(Remembering December cold)
