Monsoon Revival

[getty src="175162423?et=whCxTPBqTrxClzxalHcIVw&viewMoreLink=off&sig=D6gW5NQFmlPN5WS4ySz8pVNN9vHGe_CKH5DN-QtdV9k=" width="480" height="358"]

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.

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…

Least Minimal Good for Better Future

We are out, now. In places, all over city, or country. We often notice when we are outside, how civic amenities are making life feasible. Five years back, it was not the case. There were definite office and public hours. Mobiles made communication possible, yet services were limited. One could not get proper bedding and food at hotels.

Even now, some most popular tourist spots have poor accommodation infrastructure. If the weather would unpredictable, we were often stranded in traffic. Some travel spots were limited to boys/men only. Transport was not superior as now when we can hire a cab to any location.

When the time has changed now, don't we find ourselves pointing out faults in people, system and places. Sometimes pinches us, like sight of garbage, movement of animals, display of election campaigns and ads.

I concur nothing can change by our will but we can change a little that can help inculcate our attitude and expectations from others.

We should contribute a little towards ge…
