    My walking shoes

    Today I decided to go for a walk so took out my shoes
    They looked at me angrily asked me where were you
    It was quite natural for them to get angry with me
    Because going out for a walk was my daily regime
    For last three and a half months they were kept in my drawer
    I never looked back at them and asked how they were
    Today when I wore them I felt happy as much as for myself and also for them
    Staying throughout the day at home was making me crazy
    And was getting lazy
    These shoes have always helped me getting fit and fine
    How can I forget them and keep them behind
    Now Pandemic will become the way of life
    So I have decided to resume my walk and be fine
    Breathing in the fresh air and soaking the sunlight
    Rejuvenated my body and I felt light
    Thanks to my walking shoes for getting angry with me
    Now I won't give up my regime

    Loneliness

    Man is so selfish
    He won't come forward to catch a fish
    He will only come to relish
    He won't help a person in distress
    He will only come forward when he is laid down to rest
    The friends knew he was depressed
    Then why didn't they help to release his stress
    Hear out what he want to say
    Let him pour out each and every day
    Try to find out what is troubling his mind
    So there is nothing to ponder in the hind
    Was he so lonely and depressed
    That he had no one to express
    And he had to take such an extreme step
    Taking your own life is no solution
    Fighting with your problems is the best resolution
    This life has been given to us only once
    So treasure it as precious
    It is very harsh to leave this world without any indication
    Not even for a moment thought about your relation
    Life brings highs and lows
    But we should learn to sail thorough
    We should always give life a chance
    Never let it go without a glance
    Now some are saying this was quite evident
    Then they are to be blamed for this incident
    Yesterday he was a cheering soul
    Today he has left us to mourn

    Objection

    I raised an objection amongst my group of friends
    Regarding one post which I didn't want to trend
    It was about what we as citizens expect and still disrespect
    For them it was only an ordinary post
    But for me it was question on being my country's host
    It was not meant to be personal
    On the other hand it was quite general
    That's why the objection
    We are all contributing on our part
    That's why this question hits like a dart
    I was accused in not so many words
    for boasting off our donation
    But it was only meant to show that we are not failing as citizens
    So no need to post such information
    Many came in favour of that post
    To make me realise that my objection is futile
    As the post has nothing vile
    May be for most of them it is very easy to point out that we are useless as citizens
    For me and for all of us
    It is a disregard for being a faithful citizens
    You can't change people's attitude by such posts
    Then why hit the sentiments of those who being genuine host
    Hope you all will understand the underlying cause
    Try not to get offended by my blast
    We all are doing best on our part
    So praise those who are good at heart
    We all are doing our little bit
    For those who are really hit
    At this hour we need positive inputs
    Not the ones which will limit our outputs
    Ending at a positive note
    Hope you all have understood what my objection denote.

    My House Help

    Out there is a young girl
    Who used to do my cooking n cleaning
    She was sweet and lovely
    Being with her was a blessing.

    She used to take care of my house so well
    I never had to think about my dwell

    She was really sincere and worked so hard
    So much so that she deserved to be given the best regard.

    She loved to have breakfast or lunch at my place
    My paranthas and daal chawal used to give her solace.

    One day she came home with so much grief
    The husband whom she loved
    had left her without any brief.

    He had married again, second time
    Without any concern how will she spend her life time.

    She has two little daughters to think about
    But the man is least bothered about their whereabout.

    Inspite of all the pains and tons of worry
    and with a future which is so blurry
    She can't forget the days spent with him in love n grace
    And now she is unable to come out of this maze.

    She had married him despite opposition
    as no one had liked the proposition

    She suffered a lot in this marriage
    Receiving beatings and betrayal at a tender age

    Still she kept on forgiving him out of love
    And kept him always high above.

    Her earnings were spent on his luxuries
    In return she received no mercies

    Her heart breaks each time she sees him going along with his second wife
    It keeps reminding her how they have ruined her life

    Now she is determined to take her revenge
    By marrying someone who will take care and clench.

    Oh god! Pls listen to her prayer
    Fortify her with strength to take this dare

    Soon she must get a man of good deeds
    Who can take good care of all her needs!!

    The Elder one

    I met a girl and felt sad for her
    because life has not been fair with her
    She is of my daughter's age
    But working at home without any wage
    No appreciation only deprivation
    No increments only disagreements
    She is living a life of a labour
    The only explanation is that she being elder
    She got bruises and marks
    On her refusal
    She has to take care of everything
    From cooking, mopping and dusting
    Elders can't help because they are old
    The younger one is told to behold
    As if she is the only one who has to hold the reins of life
    The other one is gifted with presents of drife
    If one is taught the realities of life,
    Then why the other one is deprived of such sights
    I don't understand why life is so different for both the girls
    When life won't spare any of us
    If she can work since the age of ten
    Then why there is the relaxation for the other one
    The elder one is asked to cut down her expenses
    The younger one has everything at her dispenses
    I feel the parents should not create this difference
    They should treat them equally with equal maintenance
    The girl has been trained well to take care of her sister
    Then why the other one not taught to respect your the elder
    If the elder one adjusts to the finances of the house
    Then similiar should be done with younger one to douse
    Whenever I compare her with my daughter and her friends
    I feel sad for how much she has to carry on her errands
    At this age the responsibility has been entrusted on her shoulders
    She carries them on without any blunders
    She would have been happy if everyone contributes
    Then life would have been easy and enhance her attributes
    I always pray to the Almighty
    Please make her future gay and mighty
    She has suffered a lot for her age
    Bedowed her with success at the later stage

    Migrants

    Every morning I get up and view some news

    Not interested in discussions or debate
    Only inquisitive about migrants' deplorable state

    Feel depressed with their plight
    Seeing no assistance in nearby sight

    Dejected, disappointed with no money
    With little food on their journey

    Carrying children on their shoulder
    Some even their mother like a boulder

    Bearing the scorching heat
    with nothing good to feast

    Walking thousands of miles
    Sleeping on the footpath tiles

    Very few were lucky to board train or bus
    In this melee and the maddening rush

    Many on cycles, more on carts
    Across the country with their sweathearts

    Unlucky are those who are on foot
    Going back to their root

    Some walk bare foot
    Others with a broken boot

    They are being beaten and forced to go back to accommodation
    Not allowed to proceed to their destination

    The urge to go back is so high
    Some came under the train without a sigh

    They were so tired and deep in sleep
    That crushed under the wheels couldn't hear them weep

    We quarantined in the
    luxury of our home
    Crib and cry if something
    is not in our tone

    We can't go for a walk
    or even go down for a talk

    We are forced to skip
    our gym
    The only way we know
    to get trim

    These migrants' on the
    road
    Are teaching us another
    mode

    Continuous walking and
    no food to the brim
    Is another Mantra to
    get slim

    Can't we stop them from
    the path they chose?
    Can't we bring some
    solace to their woes?

    These guys were thrown out of their tents
    As they were unable to pay their rents.

    Broken slippers and blisters on their feet,
    Nothing discourage them from moving on the street.

    Helpless and hopeless with tears in their eyes,
    Telling their stories of pain with muddled cries.

    They are forced to go back to their villages
    which they had left in the bygone ages

    Then it was the urge to earn more money
    The irony is- the struggle still continues for a few pennies

    Oh God! Pls pay heed to their hue and cry

    Please give them relief
    from their grief,

    Please give them relief
    from their grief!!

    Garbage at my door

    Before this Pandemic knocked at our door
    I waged a war against garbage on my floor

    For maintaining the surrounding's cleanliness
    The effort was for everyone's wellness

    Neighbours kept the garbage near our door
    or on the staircase scattered on the floor.

    Unbelievable for the educated lot to go unaware

    Each had an excuse and a scoff for not giving it to the housekeeping staff

    We are busy
    or it is easy

    Our stairs became dirty
    With stinking it was pukey

    The cockroaches, ants and insects
    All made the stairs their nests

    I kept reminding the residents that this is not done
    Insects can no longer keep flowing into my den

    I started clicking pictures and posting them on the group,
    To make them realise that cleanliness cannot be off the hook.

    The process or the fight continued
    The garbage on the stairs was not discontinued

    I kept on clicking
    Also kept on posting

    It still contrived
    Till this Covid arrived

    Why people don't realise that they are living in hell
    If not just their home but surroundings are not clean as well

    Now I no longer have to be pushing this call
    Because fight against Covid has taught them all

    Selflessness has now created the awareness
    Everyone is now disposing for their own wellness.

    Now cleanliness has become part of our right
    We cannot ignore it how hard we might

    Why these lessons are hard to learn
    Oh..Why do we need A 'Covid' to make it earn!!

    Belongingness

    Me and my husband are staying afar.....

    So we generally talk on video chat
    But whenever this duo is on the chat,

    He always points out the fact,
    Why am I not dressed to impact!

    We are two different individual,
    But still the attraction is mutual.

    One likes to always dress upto the occasion,
    The other is fine in being simple in any situation.

    It is said that opposites attract,
    In our case this is an absolute fact.

    Thanks to him, he forces me to be gay and happy,
    In these days of separation and being snappy

    He doesn't want me to look sad and gloomy,
    But to always be cheerful and be bloomy.

    He doesn't want negativity to touch our door,
    So keeps giving me lessons on positivity to the core.

    I get irritated by his request sometime
    Because I don't understand his intentions every time.

    It irks me when he points why my hair is not done properly
    Or Why is it so curly

    Why am I wearing such a simple dress
    And I should always dress-up to impress

    Now-a-days I feel why do I get annoyed every time he says so
    He isn't asking that much from me to go

    Because this is what a marriage is all about
    To fulfill each other's wishes with out any doubt

    To see happiness on each other's face
    Just comply other's wish with grace

    He isn't asking much from me
    Just to live this life with a glee.

    The pandemic

    This pandemic has taught us a lot
    We need little we should give it a thought
    We buy so many clothes, jewels and accessories
    But they are of no use in time of adversities
    These are meant only for show off
    To let others know that we are better off
    Yes we are better off in times of this pandemic
    Than those poor lots who can't even fill their abdomen
    Due to thirst and hunger and no place to live
    They are walking down to their native place.
    IN the hope of getting some solace
    Few are dying before reaching their destination
    I feel heartless that we are failing them as a nation
    They would not have left their place of profession
    If their basic needs were fulfilled in this
    situation
    And we are busy in making and trying new dishes
    Instead try to satisfy their wishes
    Come forward and take an oath
    This is the time to feed the needy with healthy broth
    Pay them the salary without any cuts
    Because there is no ifs and buts
    This is the best way we can serve the humanity
    That is the lesson that the earth wants to teach us in this adversity.
