Anushka, for love’s sake, don’t back off!

Manoj Sebastian was livid on twitter because of Anushka Sharma!  Why?  Because she happened to be in Sydney watching her boy friend Virat’s semi final game against Australia.  A game where India lost and Virat – the star Indian batsman – scored just 1 run.  As per this guy Manoj [https:

Aapki window aur meri khidki ke darmiyan, Us chotey sey faasle mein hi, Kuch boondein baadlon sey phisal ayeiin, Pehle to light si pittar-patter thi, Ab ghata ganghor hai, From your windows, To my panes, Yeh kaisa shor hai? Tum saath ho to dil karta hai phir bachchey ban jayen,

Envelope in Deep Gratitude for the Universal Symphony

Yesterday, a friend talked about the value of gratitude in life and even more importantly on the spiritual journey. Gratitude he talked of is not the “Thank you” platitudes but real gratitude where you are one with the entity you are grateful to and for. If you understand that “you”

I too had a Love Story

I too fell in love, I too hugged life, I too felt beautiful, I too had a Love story. It was fun, it was special; It was cozy, it was cold; It was breezy, it was sunny; It was kind, it was mean; It was rainy, it was barren; It

When you sprinkled the dew drops

This poem is the expression of a plant. When a seed is nurtured well, it grows up into a beautiful plant. But when the person, who helped instill the life in that little seed wants to drift away, what does that plant, wrenching in pain, wishes to become? Here it
