The Sad Birdie

Vermillion red and a streak of gold,A beautiful head and a tail made of coal.The bird sang happily before,But now it has lost the will to soar.The open sky,The clouds passing by,It no more calls to him as beauty and blithe.Afore he would dream about the stars,The moon and the horizon so far.The world full of colors and happiness spread […]

The Categorical Imperative and 2020

Immanuel Kant was a famous philosopher, well proclaimed for his theory- The Categorical Imperative. This theory is a deontological form of ethics. What is deontology, exactly? Well, deontology is a theory created by multiple thinkers stating that, we shouldn’t act without thinking about the consequences, (here’s the catch…) but instead we should act according to our own personal set of […]

Mothers

When we need help, She wraps her loving arms around us. She does all our work without making a fuss. She is always looking out, And cannot bear to see us pout. For her that’s her job, To take care of us , And see to it that we never sob. When I am in her arms, I forget all […]

Courage and fear

To stand up and fight to truly put one’s might, to do something that’s so hard, it’s impossible to do even some part. But, to go back and face cowardice, to be scared and not face the apprentice, to be flooded with fear. But to be strong, to be a rebel and break laws. Instead, to be timid to be […]

Summer!

The rainbow goes the sunshine flows, the flowers and the shady tree. The cock just crows towards the lonely souls of no. 4 Stratton Ford and lee. What do you call a perfect summer’s day? Some lemon juice, a glass a truce. It’s almost just as free . The perfect way to celebrate your summer is just to be!

Coastal Diaries Day – 12

Vishakapatnam to Odissa (Gopalpur) January 22. We left from Vizag around 9:00-9:30a.m. for Gopalpur which is around 300kms today’s drive was bit longer as compared to other days. While leaving Vishakapatnam I wasn’t feeling so good, I think it was the city I felt in love with or may be the place we visited last night. I will definitely come with Sumit again […]

Day – 55, lockdown

It’s been 55 days, and today I was thinking of something which I think is called social conflict. In the city I live in there are a whole lot of cases, so we’re all in the red zone. Movement in all parts of the city has been reduced, for obvious reasons of safety even in societies. But certain people feel […]

Waiting for dawn.

The world fell quiet this year,Like the forest, when the night comes near.But, we didn’t get sunlight this year,We were stuck in a dark place, surrounded by fear. But, there were things I learnt,About myself, about this world.I tried to look at the glass as half full,This year was something new,And the ride was far from dull.I’ve grown twice the […]

Premonition

A short story… The last of the suitcases were stuffed in the backseat and the car door was closed. Naisha went over to the front, moved over some of her belongings to make some place and sat down. Her father was already in the driver’s seat, he looked at her eagerly and asked, “So, you ready?” Naisha nodded happily and […]

A Dying doom and the ultimate imagination.

Thomas More wrote a book called ‘Utopia’ during the rennaissance period. It was about an imaginary island somewhere in America, where there were no social disparities, no blind faith, only peace and friendship. No such island exists till date, does it? These social barriers still prevail. Privileged people on one side, and the underprivileged on the other. So many people […]

Away for long

Soo, I have been away for too long. For the past few weeks I was only writing for myself and not for any other platforms. But, I was also doing other stuff. I was preparing to take a creative writing class for kids my age (10-14 year olds mostly) this will be my second workshop and I’m super excited! So […]

The Things We Hide…

Secrets as dark as the night,Regretful pasts locked in their cages and trying to take flight.Hopelessness trapped away from everybody,Just like the dark side of the moon,Our dark side nobody can see.Cowardice cloaked by a thin veil,While some others have blood red courage hidden beneath.A tender heart,Covered in steel.Memories that age,Like the dried autumn leaves.Happiness soaring through the blue sky,Tears […]

Cliff…

Look at the purple sky,The streaks of orange,Clouds passing by.Standing at the precipice,Staring at the rock bottom,I don’t dare look at the beauty,Too scared to shatter my thoughts,I don’t look above me.That’s what we miss,When we think about falling.We miss vibrancy,When you’re too busy to wonder,About how you’re alive,Too lost for the vast sky.Too self involved and you don’t know […]
