Hello peeps ,
I’m an Indian who loves traveling , writing poetry , spirituality and who appreciates the beauty of solitude. Travel diaries contains some glimpses of my attempts at traveling , exploring the beauty of The Republic of India and breaking some stereotypes about traveling in India and also some travel tips regarding the same.
This is my very first attempt at showing the unseen corners the sub continent has to offer. I believe traveling shows another dimension of its very beauty especially when one is a spiritual person , which I am.
This poem pretty much sums up my life during graduation. Though it is quite nostalgic reminiscing those days , they did teach me few lessons worth cherishing for life time. The exact events that happened during the course of time then are summed up in a poetic manner. Hope you’ll like it.
I still remember the first day
as fresh as the morning breeze
hundreds of students brisking around in chaos
trying to escape from ragging and other miseries
My first lecture was filled with high adrenaline
of wanting to learn a lot and innovate
not having a slightest clue of what’d happen further
which is when the game began
First few weeks were spent in joy
making new friends and sorting out our ways of “fun”
we grabbed new fags , bottles and crushed dry grass
and the fun continued and we were never done
A few weeks later I saw this girl
as beautiful as April rain
we exchanged numbers and spoke all day and night
and she became my drug that took away all my pain
She was just another parallel universe of mine
because my friends also became my priority
who taught me million things from scratch
because I had just entered life and was a newbie
Days passed by and we skipped as many lectures as we could
bunked them all the while and went to any movie or a club
I thought my life was sorted all the while
until this monotony broke after 2 years
friends drifted apart , left me stranded
the “love of my life” was grabbed by someone else
only to realize it was illusion and a fake reality
and it was tough to fall back in love with myself..
As directionless as I was back then
I thought everything was done
and this good game life was over
that’s when another revolution begun
I was there by my side and solitude my way
and in every deed from then I alone stood
because every relation of mine became fray
I embraced it to the fullest as much as I could
I kicked all the habits
I won against my fate
pulled myself back from the null
and not a single incident do I regret
so , my graduation taught me
that people are just fake
they’re just there for their greed
and they’re there for namesake

Yet I kept calm , ’cause I had nothing to lose

Will the world ever be at peace?
will the evergrowing wars stop?
there must be some way for this to end
and the anchor should be quickly dropped
Are we hypocrites to talk of world peace?
when there’s never ending battle inside of us
when there’s barely any control over our minds
when there’s barely any hope left inside of us?
Somehow we know about a one stop solution
its not prayers or mob mobilizing
it is about sowing the seed of inner happiness
and it is about believing in that one holy thing
when there’s finally peace inside of you
there’ll finally be peace in the universe
’cause your mind can alter the future for better
and that’s how through the dungeons , we can traverse.
