The world would’ve been a very dull place,
If it had only the blacks, whites and grays,
The beauty of life would’ve been gone,
Nothing would seem lovely- not the flowers, the rainbow or the dawn,
Colours are the essence, they complete the scene,
With shades of red, blue, pink and green,
Every colour has its story, is unique in a way,
About the different shades of life, they have a lot to say,
The colour white shows being pure and clean,
And blue is for the calm and serene,
Red is the shade of love, warmth and care,
And green is to grow and prosper fair,
Black is the hue of the dark, the colour of the night,
And yellow goes for everything that is happy and bright,
All these colours bring out the true beauty and grace,
They come together and make this world a lively and magnificent place.
The cards are dealt and the money’s on stake,
This is the moment, it’s either make or break,
About the other’s deal you have no clue,
So go by your instincts and trust them too,
Play your cards well as you won’t be served twice,
Collect all you can or pay the price,
The odds may or may not be in your favour all the time,
One moment you may have plenty of dollars and the next, just a dime,
In this gamble of life people would cheat, people would lie,
Cuz all they want is to win while the stakes are still high,
So the next time you make an unexpected gain or a quick buck,
Well, it might just be your luck!
Always there to tease you, to laugh at your silliness, to crack weird jokes on you, to be a helping hand, to wipe your tears, to always be by your side. Such are these weird creatures we fondly refer to as our ‘best friends’. They are very difficult to find, but once found the wait seems worthwhile. Best friends are the siblings we wish we had. We all have our little secrets with them which we know they’ll take to their graves and we’d do the same for them. A best friend is always there for you, no matter what. Friends come and go, they fall apart over mere misunderstandings and fights. But a best friend is one who gets through all the shit and at the end of the day would still be right there next to you calling you all crazy and stupid names. You feel all lonely, you know there’s someone to cheer you up. You screw up and nobody’s by your side, someone’s always got your back. People are mean to you, you know your bestie’s gonna kick their ass. A best friend knows you in and out, you can’t hide anything from them. They are like the FBI, can easily tell something is up with you by the look on your face. You can have plenty and plenty of friends, but only one would truly be interested in knowing about things that worry you, details about that cute guy, your innermost fears or just any random thing. And suddenly just these lines from the theme song of the awesomest TV show ever come to my mind-
“I’ll be there for you, when the rain starts to pour..
I’ll be there for you, like I’ve been there before..
I’ll be there for you, cuz you’re there for me too.”
The soothing sound of water falling, the peace, the serenity- it seems like a perfect get away spot. Away from all the tension, the buzz and bruit of the city. Escape from the constant honking, the street side gaali galoch, the pressure of meeting deadlines, the emotional trauma and what not?! The water fall is a breath taking scene and the camera, it loves the fall. It’s a sight to capture. You could just get lost into it, well literally if you don’t know how to take a swim. 😛 So if tired of all the Mumbai mach mach, take a long drive and find your very own stress buster! 😉
That’s it! I QUIT, I can’t take it anymore,
Life’s too Harsh and there’s nothing to Live for,
This is the END, its all Black from here,
No changes can be made, not even a mere,
At some point of time, we all reach this low,
When everything seems Worthless and being Happy becomes something that we used to know,
At this phase, what one needs to do is accept things as they are,
Cause LIFE can’t be all Smiles and not even a single Scar,
So don’t waste your Time dwelling on what’s gone and done,
It’s the End of a thing that marks the rise of a new one,
Life’s out there with it’s Endless Possibilities and chances Infinite,
Go ahead, make a New Start and run for it with all your Might,
So the next time you feel like a LOSER, don’t just sit there Crying,
Remember the story of the spider who’s failure did not stop it from trying,
Keep in mind this one last thing,
This isn’t the end, but a possible NEW BEGINNING.
I walk around the City with a Camera in my Hand,
Searching for unusual things and Capturing them if I can,
Worth a Thousand Words is a Picture,
A complete blend of Emotions, a perfect Mixture,
We are A Team- Me, My Camera and Us,
It speaks of Me by everything it does,
In this Fast Moving World where everything is at a Great Pace,
Where things change by a Second, A Picture is what Stays,
So Look Around You and find Things that create an Effect,
Cause You never know when the Moment might just be Picture Perfect!

A B C D,
The letters bring memories of childhood to me,
For the many unfortunate, these just seem empty,
They say ours is a free country, where all have equal rights and there exists democracy,
But the question that arises- Are We Really Free?
So bound by the burden of illiteracy,
While some achieve high degrees and doctorates,
Many remain uneducated due to their ill fates,
The key is education for all- Every Child, Every Corner,
Then will our country be one to truly honour,
So lets dream of a nation,
Where everybody has an equal opportunity to education,
Only then will the Light of Knowledge brighten the Shadow.
