o almighty

In the grandeur that the firmament boasts of,


In the majestic glory that the trees show of,

In the ancience that these monuments relate to,

In all these numerous manifestations, O God I find you.



In the undaunted pride that a lion displays,

In the heroic tales that every culture reverberates,

In the lore of love of every land,

I feel you there; there you stand.



The crimson pink of today’s setting sun,

The bluish hue of tomorrow’s morning dawn,

The natural landscape’s green beauty,

All echo your presence, O almighty.



PARTING

Neither can one see, nor can one hear,

What the future does bear.

He plans, He destines, loves too and does keep.

But no mind can ever conceive,

What awaits for the ones, His dear.



What hope can I have, so,

Leave everything for tomorrow.

Indeed, the time has come too sudden,

To say goodbye.

The ruling destiny

Never lets you dominate;

But memories, how can they ever die?



Bitter are the plays of fortune

And sweet are the little merry moments,

The ones that keep life tuned.

Pits and falls, ups and downs,

Laughter and laments.

Yet future knows we shall meet

Perhaps, on your or my birthday treat!



And as does approach the farewell day,

I know not what to say,

My thoughts seem to cloud,

And there’s a hazy vision all around,

Yet, I have memories with me

And you do have contact, live with glee.



Still, when metres turn into kilometres,

Kilometres to miles,

More and more do I see you

Your tears and your smiles.

When my vision from here

Cannot find you

Here, in my heart, you are

Now, I knew.



And…

My Last Trip Before Lockdown

When Covid19 had just put its foot in the country with only 3 cases in Kerala, we had our Ooty trip planned. All tickets and bookings were done since the new year. With just three days in hand, four of us travelled from Mumbai, Pune and Bhubaneswar, to Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru, to join a few others staying in the city. And the excitement to finally meet one another after 6 months of that trip to Pune, the Lohagard Trek- we were kids excitedly clicking selfies in our face masks, hurriedly putting a quick dab of sanitizer before hugging one another.


Next day early morning we were to start for Ooty. Sleepy heads, gulping a bowl each of muesli, we started onward journey to Bandipur National Park. Devouring uttapams, dosas and piping hot cups of coffee for breakfast at a restaurant by the highway, chit chats were full on, as was the music and dance in the 12-seater vehicle. Funny anecdotes had us laughing our hearts out, gossips were such a thrill and cooking recipe exch…
