Bye Bye 2020

Bye bye 2020 We are sorry we are obliged to forget you for your harsh treatment of us That you allowed a foreign dust to swarm upon us that suffocated our breaths Bye bye 2020 We are angry for  the bitter experiences you have engraved upon us That you rubbed a nasty alien stuff upon our noses that robbed our entire lives Bye bye 2020 We are in a hurry to give a grand farewell…

Fresh Start

Fresh start is not a guest to jostle us once in a while It is a host that  accompanies us every day Every minute Every second To move forward in an optimistic direction Seizing every good opportunity Capturing every rare possibility Like a butterfly winging from flowers to sky Grasping enthralling fresh air all along the fly New resolution is not a list we make now and then It is a must we insist for…

Supreme sacrifice

How can and in what way we value A Jawan’s sacrifice: Who goes to border knowing the odds Knowing that his life is full of thorns Knowing that his family was there behind Waiting for him  Parting from him Praying for him But only with one patriotic thought  Burbling all over the nerves That I am born to serve the Nation That I am born to sacrifice for my country Settings aside all the comforts …

Miss you# childhood

   I miss my childhood I miss my tree-bed I miss my palm tree shed I miss decorating my doorways red I miss hanging to banyan tree tread I miss playing in the streets Without any fear of vehicles Without any fear of kidnappings Without any fear of borewells Without any fear of modern day’s malice I miss my school days Pledging in the big compounds Playing in the intervals Swarming around the ice-cream cart…

Elephant Falls

Three step waterfall in upper Shillong Named after an Elephant shaped rock in British times The name is carried, though the rock vanished from Earthquake A neat pleasant picture for the nature lovers An enthralling experience with every step Hid under the beautiful East Khasi hills With railed steps till the third one A definite work to the toury legs A rhythmic burbling from jumping over the rocks Chilling the back with naughty fountain drips…
