As a child you are told to do things that make the society happy.20 years later you need a therapist to tell you what makes you happy#ThatsLife #SelfMusings©iamsnehanshu
I wake up like every dayGo back to bedPretend I am asleepLie myself to be lazyWake up againThis time for realI don't go out todayAs if I do usuallyAnd yet I do notIt's unadvisablePracticing distancingLike if I need practiceI see faces of peopleNo one is scaredNo one is not scaredAt the back our headIt's just there, Impending truthI do go out thenLike other hoardersGuilty and selfishEverything is fineI am not aloneNeither togetherAfter the businessSomething feels abruptWeather wasn't a symptomAnd yet it feels that wayFor the wind is roughAnd the birds unhappyIt's not an omen Not even a messageIsn't nature a reflectionOf how far we knewand yet we let it happenwe, us, so proud & smartand finally, we are hereat the end of the worldstuck at our palaceslooking for omensthe "smart" mammalsof a "smarter" world
Hidden amongst Its smaller brothersIcy, windy, unchartedthe last of the landsbefore all mightinessAnd there we wereUnknowing, ignorantof a new milestoneand yet knowing, scaredof a mighty task on handIcy slippery rocksto melted into waterfallsto paths going nowhereand strangers on the climbEngulfing snow to conquerAnd the final destinationA blanket of snow, freezingAnd a view, that can takebreath of the living awayWhite beauty of nature
The two spirits were talking tonightUnder the moon stars in sightCool moist wind blew so lightOne wasn't wrong one wasn't rightThousands of soul were fast asleepThe two were the darker sheepLiving when the routine was wrongSleeping when the routine was rightOn top, music was high, life was highWords were high, intellectuality was highIn those interesting snappy conversationsEven the djinns had their reservationThe two spirits near the water tankUp on a terrace, in music they sankA group of dark spirits came by and satJoined them in a cosmic chatWhen the living spirits chose to pass outThe cosmic spirits chose to work outThe intellect was finding solutions to the worldThe purpose of the world, summa colloquiumUnder the blanket of stars and music Everything was high breathing and lucid
A solo journeyMiles beyond the reachA family of hostsHome-cooked foodStrangers by the fireI had travelledAll the way till hereFor that one momentAbove the mountainA demanding trekBeyond my physicalLimits and expectationsSlippery Ice on a downhillFour feet deep snowAnd yet I survivedTo see you
I moved the bush aheadNot to get a glimpseBut to make way amongThe snowy wildernessAnd yet I found youBasking in the goldThe sunset of desireA potrait of perfection7 minutes of goldOne amazing pictureAnd you were worthA million memories

White Sands of SarayuWhile going towards Munisiyari from Bageshwar through Kapkot, Sarayu River makes an interesting presence. The river is untouched for most of its course, making its water chrystal clear and has a bluish colour. As we move more ahead, the soil around the river becomes whitish in colour. The absence of population as well as tourists in this region makes it the whole environment pristine. You can sit on a mountain side and spend an eternity in here listening to the sound of the river and winds.

Homecoming - Diwali
22 years and I hated itSitting at home, waitingWhile everyone arrivesJust like our Shri RamAnd I like a bharat Would wait like 14 yearsFor those who weren't herefriends, love & companionsThings have changedAs I have finally moved I am a Shri Ram back toMy ayodhya of peopleTonight I realise the valueOf homecomingOf lights to this festivalOf people back to homeThere are colours, in lightsIn faces, in conversationsIn kaju Katlis, in verandahsIn roads, in stations, in airportsI am on the other side nowOn the recieving sideOf the love, and I know whatGoes through the other endI am more absorbing of loveNow that I know People have waited 12 monthsTo shower their love, onYou©iamsnehanshu
Just outside it was a different worldA world from travel booksFrom dreams you don't want to end orWhere the movies say romance happenA sanctuary of peace in my headAnd I was there, for the first timeTo feel it, to touch it, to breathe itThe mountains were not just realThey were some few miles awayI was a part of it at this momentThat morning was a bit mistyas I wiped off it from my glassesAnd then I saw the majestic scenewhite snow like veins on the foreheadAnd a greenish subtle undertone It was still a photograph with a frameA frame of clouds, of mist, of milesThis time the brown was different tooThe snow was whiter, like purity, differentFrom what I had painted in my drawing What would I take home of this, I wonderedIf at all anything, would the colourful flagsOr the brass artwork be of any valueOnce it loses, not it's colour or glitterBut is fragrance of the brown and whiteMountains©iamsnehanshu
Yes, there are wide contrasts between the set of rights and wrongs you have set for yourself to the ones others have for themselves. We are individuals with our own opinions and judgements. Things which may offend someone would seem completely fine to you and things which you think are wrong might be the right thing to do for others. You are not him or her. It is your life and your decisions. It is their life and their decisions. So just STOP JUDGING. It is their set of rights and wrongs which may be completely different from yours.
