So, you skipped but didn’t. You let the whisper with your friend heard across. The colleague went to supervisor and his screening eyes watched you go to washroom followed by your friend. After all, there is no rule who and how will one leaves the bay. The prepared confirmed the suspicion and then tick tok the office watch moved close to one hour after lunch. Another hour and preferably 30 minutes to end of office shift, there is still no escape.

No excuse, no entry into the office manager’s room to seek a let off. Finally just seconds after your shift is over giving a courteous smile to your supervisor, you and your friend leave the office.
What is in there? The monsoons. Here in India, it is possible to have fun with or without the water swelling up in the lanes or the roads, the mood is brimming. It is no longer long shifts, weird working hours, traffic but the access to everything done with a single click making the life comfortable. The tricks and tips are renovating in sense.

The common sense is not so the hot soup still one has fallen in. One does it at only leisure. There is no dearth of one getting struck in the back and narrow lanes just before the heavy clouds chose to inundate with flushing waters from rooftops of the high buildings. The sliding marks are only accidental or those visiting the place for the first time.

The main roads, the safest ones with timeless concrete and smoothness are taken over by the traffic from the highways. It is still mystery how people come out of their street lanes, preferably putting sheets around their shoes or plastic boots. Open slippers are definitely so in fashion during monsoons, some gyrating factors keeping them still interesting.

At same time, I am curious of gushing waterfalls in open manholes or in the trenches dug to lay wires. Some of the meadows on the main highways strongly reflect that genuinely it is possible to find wildlife sooner near. The men especially, form a good company, being so natural.

The not-so-harmful jokes are definitely not advisable. Keep your boss happy, especially during monsoons. They drive through straight roads at relaxed hours and do not even know about road rage.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

Open-Ended Questions and Advaita Vedanta

What we decipher through eyes could almost be a truth but is there need to confirm to everything. Prior to internet the world we lived in, we exchanged information in professional spheres. Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.  Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next? There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …

Moon and stars

moon again behind
the hills what
myth I build on my story


a star out of canvas
I am 
here with truth


few stars in sky
and angles in and out 
can't locate more


only one more round
at moon hedge
full of jasmine
