Awakening all her senses she woke,
amidst deep sleep.
She heard some faint voice as if door is creaking,
She wasn’t sure who it was.

Dancing alone round the house,
tuning in her favourite music.
She felt someone brushing her hair,
She wasn’t sure who it was.

Sitting at her window,
reading her own written book.
She heard someone louder than her mind,
She wasn’t sure who it was.

Following her vaccum cleaner,
in the entire balcony.
She heard the leaves far behind her tatter,
She wasn’t sure who it was.

While praying in the grave,
sitting besides her granny’s tomb.
She noticed a heavy hand on her head,
She was now sure who it was.

What is so unpredictable?

What should we name that thing which is so unpredictable ??
Happiness ? Death ? Survival ? Stability ? Or is it this thing called Life ?
When does this Life exist and when does it end ?This whole universe has a cycle. Then why not this cycle is uniform ?
Should Death be pre- announced, how easy it would be ? We would know when to earn, when to spend. When to live life to the fullest, when to listen to your heart and when to listen to mind. So many things would have been easier.

When the life moves out of the body, even the body is not aware. Soul is out – so the body in now “NoBody”. The catch is be a preacher, a common man, a goon, an entrepreneur, a killer or some random Jack or John – once dead you will be called neither by your profession nor by your name – you will be a “BODY” to everybody. End of life is called Death, or we can say beginning of the next life is Death.

They say ,”Good souls are the first one to catch eye of the God.” Even God requires someone to take care of him. So I say, “Be Evil and you will live your life for your own sake.”

So my stake in life is – “Until DEATH calls you LIVE your LIFE.” When it’s your turn you have to leave everyone on their own. Better leave then on their own now and “LIVE and let LIVE.”

Have written this blog in memory of deceased near one Mr. Rajesh Shetty who was always jolly and took everyone on a ROLLER COASTER ride whenever he was around.. You will be missed… today ..tomorrow and always…

The deadly journey.

Thumping amongst the dark woods they were threading with a snail’s pace,

for they weren’t sure which way was their space.
They walked ahead, they walked sideways,

For it wasn’t the journey they take –  always.

Sushhhhhhh Sushh Sussh shhh came some noise from bushes and creek,
Their nerves went crazy and voices went meek.
Upon her fell clutters of leaf,
They saw –  too near was a deep cliff.

Terror struck them as wooshed some cars in the lane by their side,

But none stood by them and they were left to stride.
Came a shadow, it hit them on their face,
Till today where they went – there are no trace.
