NOSTALGIA


NOSTALGIA

you can retrieve memory
history records transactions
with your help
we can dig our past
lay hands on every minutest details
you are such a faithful friend

can you get me back
my youth my love
days of dare-devil actions
my village chained by
an artificial border
though we are bound by the same sky
same river flowers love and hatred
where the bells of a church
conchs of a temple and
the azan of a mosque
mingle together in perfect harmony
and purify the air that
we breathe in every moment
till we breathe our last Rajkumar- Jaipur

    Time is the cruelest enemy- over time we loose all- but memory remains.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
