What in life is right
And what is wrong
It’s a never ending debate
That can go on and on

What one sees as truth
Maybe another person’s lie
Different set of rules
For different set of eyes

What makes one happy
Can make another sad
Who is to sit and judge
What is good or what is bad

What may be reality to some
Others may call misconception
It is all how one sees and thinks
And a matter of perception

Reconnecting With Friends

This one's for the 83-84 St.Patrick's batch that reconnected recently. The loud conversations in free periods seem like so long ago. Yet, memories from our high school years still resonate on my mind. I can't explain in words how it feels reminiscing with you all who I made long-ago memories with.
Like Hubert H. Humphrey said - "The greatest gift of life is friendship, and I received it." Love you all ladies :)

Moments, months and years passed by
And we all grew old and apart
And though I lost touch with you all
You remained forever in my heart

Each one of you was special to me
In more ways than you can think
And though I may not have said it aloud
Between us I always felt a sacred link

Those carefree days of laughter
Those school crushes and being mad
That sharing of every insignificant thing
And the love that everywhere spread

Those shared yummy hot samosas in school
And the gossip in lunch breaks
The much dreaded, hated civics class
And in home science trying to stay awake

My eyes go moist remembering it all
And I regret the years spent alone 
But I believe we can recreate that magic
That through our friendship sparkled and shone

You were all like bright vivid colors
On the canvass of life I call “Me”
You each gave meaning to my life
And carved and shaped my personality

Reconnecting with you all once again
My heart swells with happiness and joy
Once again laughter and tears will be shared
And again each other’s company we’ll enjoy

Your Everything, And More

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers

My life was so intertwined
Lovingly with yours
And you claimed I was
Your everything, and more..

My days were filled
With thoughts of you
Your nights were punctuated
With dreams of me..

My whole being reflected
Your personality
And you echoed
Every emotion I had..

Naively, I thought
Our love was everlasting
Little did I know
That life had other plans..

You lost yourself
To the daily chaos of life
While I got lost 
In the clutter of your mind..

Feelings were procrastinated
And indifference crept in
Your priorities changed
And mine faded with time..

The love that once was
Now lies lifeless and forgotten
Suffocating under 
The debris of indifference..

 No more is my life
Intertwined with yours
And no more am I
Your everything, and more...

Moving On

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers

The past is called the “past”
For a very valid reason
For it once was and had to go
Like the ever passing seasons

The past is a distant place
We can never go back to 
We cannot change what was
Nor can the incidents we undo

So just accept the fact willingly
That the past is over and gone
Fill your heart with new dreams
Hold your head up and move on

The future is what awaits us
And new stories it will tell
Don’t turn back to look at the past
Just let it go and bid it farewell

Self Effacing

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers

They demand her silence
And overrule her opinions..

They expect her to be timid
And dominate over her..

They take her humbleness
As an approval to their demands..

They extinguish her personality
And shatter her self confidence

They build and live their dreams
While she sacrifices all of hers

And all this while they praise her
For being selfless and self effacing..

While she sits alone and wonders
If one can be so self effacing
That one totally destroys
One’s true “self”
And “selflessly”…
