Memories - मैंने शायद तुम्हें पहले भी कहीं देखा है....


“Meine shayad tumhe pehle bhi kahin dekha hai…”  croons Mohammed Rafi softly in his melodious voice on the radio. I stop and stare at the radio. Waves of inexplicable nostalgia wash over me.  I haven’t heard this song in years and suddenly I am overcome with a torrent of memories. It is like a flashback of a different place and a different time.

Some songs when heard after a long, trigger such vivid memories that transport us back in time. They bring back emotions long buried beneath the debris of our everyday life. It is as if they are entwined with memories of certain people, places and seasons. Some songs bring a smile while others make us shed a tear quietly. Such is the power of songs and music.

What songs bring back emotions from your past ? Has a song ever caught you off guard and brought back a tidal wave of memories ?

Cloak of Anonymity


Leaving behind cacophony of life
I reach out and embrace peace, solitude
A welcome cloak of anonymity

Dear Time...



Dear time, stop for a while

Let me revel in my today

And with my past reconcile

Closure


The fragments that you left behind

Of a once shared day-to-day life

I gather and store all bit by bit

Yet they still hurt like splinters in feet

New Beginnings


Standing quietly in the rain
Letting words wash off pages
Turning blank the book called "Me"
An urge to re-write life
