    Snow Traveller

    I finally came to realize I'd been combing through old family photos for hours.

    It's been a year today since my father passed away and it still feels like yesterday.

    The pictures of him as I grew up replace sadness with a peaceful longing.

    Snap shots of him as a young man leave me wishing I had known him then.

    Feeling cooped up I decide to brave the snow and get some badly needed fresh air.

    Wiping the foggy window with my sleeve I stare into the empty street.

    Bundled up I step out and onto the sidewalk for a quiet walk alone.

    Snowflakes dance in the glow of the streetlights that
    guide my way to nowhere.

    The snow continues to descend obscuring the city's dinge in a blanket of white.

    I try to forget the cold but the puffs of steam rising from every breath are a constant reminder.

    Lost in my flurry of thoughts I force my hands deeper within my pockets.

    Plodding on through the cold and snow I stare down at my boots to avoid the wind.

    I need new boots...

    Not sure how long I've been walking but my ears are getting cold.

    I notice the local shops begin flipping their window signs to closed.

    Wondering the time I unzip my coat and reach for the inside pocket for my phone.

    It's not there so I begin hastily frisking myself like a Schizophrenic playing cops and robbers.

    Standing still I drop my head in defeat realizing I left it by the door getting dressed.

    This is about as off the grid as I'm ever going to get, shrugging I continue walking.

    My sock is getting wet...

    Through the haze of snow, I see the familiar neon lights of the local diner.

    I'd passed it a hundred times before but never felt the impulse to go inside.

    Deciding I need to thaw myself out I head for the restaurant for a cup of something hot.

    Upon entering the door jingles a bell as I read a sign that says "Come for the coffee and stay for the pie."

    The Twilight zone plays in my head as I step back in time upon crossing the threshold.

    An oldies radio station is lightly playing filling the diner with a nostalgia that matches the decor.

    I shake off the snow like a wet dog and stomp my feet before heading for the counter.

    There are only two other customers who look warm and dry, I can only presume they've stayed for the pie.

    I could go for pie...

    Sitting myself down on a swivelling bar stool a waitress smiles saying "what can I get you hon"?

    Glancing at her name tag I respond with "well Violet I could really use a hot cup of coffee."

    "You poor thing you look frozen to the bone, I'll tell you what, the first cups on the house."

    She knows I'm staying for the pie...

    I smile as I began rubbing my hands together in an attempt to warm my fingers.

    Violet carefully sets the steaming cup down and slides over the cream and sugar.

    She sets a spoon on a napkin and says "just holler if you need something hon" followed by a playful wink.

    I close my eyes taking my first few sips focusing on its warmth like some caffeine meditation technique.

    Getting comfortable I spin my stool around and watch the snow drizzle down the window.

    The strobing blue light of a passing snowplow
    snaps me out of the labyrinth in my head.


    I turn back to signal Violet for a refill but she's already prepared with pie and a coffee pot.

    Chuckling I say "you my dear are a mind reader!" Smiling she says "yup! I'm here all night".

    Filling my piehole (FYI it's apple, I know you were wondering) the door jingles welcoming a newcomer.

    I will visit

    A magical place covered with
    beaches. Tasty dishes like dosa and
    idli make my mouth watery.

    Maximum educated people are in this place. It will be fun to interact with them.

    The time when family becomes one
    The excitement of traveling
    The happiness of our time together
    The delicious food had outside
    The breathtaking scenery of nature
    The fun time at beach sand
    The eye catching moment of sunset
    The dripping mood of sleep
    The working mechanism of cameras
    The disappointment of coming back
    And the yearning of going again
    Never changes!!!!!!!!

    Ek safar

    खत लिख रहे हैं तुझे
    तेरा पता मालुम नहीं, आशाओं के शहर खत भेज रहे हैं तुझे।
    की तुझे संभाल के थोड़ा हम भी संभल गए हैं ।हाँ दिल हम तुम पे हार गए हैं ।
    पता नहीं किस राह निकल पड़े है, बस थामा तेरा हाथ और चल पड़े है ।
    भटक चुके है रास्ता दुनिया की बरबादियों का एक रास्ता मिला है सुंदर ओर शांत सा।
    मंजिल का कोई ठिकाना नहीं ,बस जहां तू रुख जाए साथ मेरे वही ठीकना है आज से।

    Hills and valleys covered with fog and mist
    ........................................................


    Hills and valleys covered with fog and mist,
    I dont like as it hides the beauty of trees
    and green leaves.
    I dont like the idea of not seeing a person
    Just standing two feet apart from me.
    But people travel for it ,
    In search of fog and mist.
    Yet me on the other hand,
    like the Idea of nature to be seen.
    The glory of the serene,
    The greens,
    The bark of trees,
    Stretched out vines,
    And bouldering roots.
    Mashed Mud with tyre tracks,
    And ripe fallen leaves.
    I found more beauty in monumental trees of the courtyard of my time worn University than on mist filled valleys of Munnar and Ponmudi.

    एक अजीब से उलझन में उलझ गई हूं मैं
    यकीन मानो ,
    बिना मंजिल के सफ़र पर चल पड़ी हूं मैं।

    खुद से मुंह मोड़ कर उसकी ओर बढ़ रही हू मै
    यकीन मानो,
    बस सफर ही कर रही हूं मैं।

    Travelling

    Travelling to the nearby city with the Nature all around .
    I sat near the window with my face swirling round and round.
    Trees bid goodbye, as we moved...
    The winds hushed and showed me there gratitude.
    Bus hopped n hopped coz of the pits n bumps on the road...
    While people crawled in onboard.
    Bus stopped at various stations,
    Testing our patience at distinctions.
    The child cried like a monster in a hill
    His mother filled lullaby with that heavenly feel... getting us all in chill.
    The aunt sitting beside me flicked,
    After a couple of hands clicked.
    I reached my destination in these merry moments I see.
    What I'll remember is the,
    weirdly hour indeed.

    यात्रा

    सफ़र कुछ पल का है, मंजिल बहुत दूर है
    यात्रा मंगलमय हो या ना हो करना जरूर है
    मिलेंगे मुशफिर हर ठिकाने मे,
    कुछ हस्ते से कुछ मूरझाय से,
    कुछ मलिन से कुछ मग्न से,
    पकड़ो किसी एक का हाथ,
    जिसको तेरा फितूर है,
    यात्रा मंगलमय हो या ना हो करना जरूर है।।
    यात्री जितने भी है सब पराये है,
    जानना सबको लेकिन किसी को अपना ना समझना
    जीतेंगे तुम्हारा विश्वास, हर दी हुई चीज को विष मत समझना,
    दुर्घटना से बचना , दुनिया कहेगी ये तेरा कसूर है
    यात्रा मंगलमय हो या ना हो करना जरूर है।।

    Theirs' a wish for you,
    Travelling in the ripples of love I have for you,
    May it remains for forever and travel with you,
    These hearts are meant to connect,
    Let them be miles apart,
    There's a wish for you,
    In a nut shell of time it's wrapped,
    But will always be with you.

    ഒരിക്കൽ, ഒരു യാത്ര പോണം..
    തനിയെ.. അങ്ങു ദൂരേക്ക്...
    ആരും അറിയാത്തിടത്തേക്ക്,
    ആരെയും അറിയാത്തിടത്തേക്ക്,
    പേരുപറഞ്ഞ് വിളിക്കാനിടയില്ലാത്ത ആൾ കൂട്ടത്തിനിടയിലേക്ക്,
    അവിടെന്ന് ഭൂതവും ഭാവിയും തിരക്കാത്ത ചിലരുമായി കൂട്ട് കൂടണം..
    ഇനിയൊരിക്കലും കാണാനിടയില്ലാത്ത അവരുമായി അവിടം ആഘോഷമാകണം, ഓരോ തെരുവും ആഴത്തിൽ കണ്ടു തീർക്കണം,
    പുതു രുചികൾ തൊട്ടറിയണം,
    ലക്ഷ്യങ്ങളില്ലാതെ അലഞ്ഞുതിരിയണം.,

    ഒടുവിൽ, മടങ്ങി പോരുംനേരം മനസ്സിലോർക്കണം..
    നേടിയതും നഷ്ട്ടപ്പെട്ടതും ഒന്നുമല്ല..
    ഈ നിമിഷം,
    ഇതേ ഉള്ളു..
    ഇത്രയൊക്കെയെ ഉള്ളു....

    My Journey To The Mountain Peaks

    I'm travelling alone today
    To the mountain peaks
    Without knowing
    How would my journey be?
    Carrying all my luggages
    With stuffs inside,
    Some bottles to quench my thirst,
    Some healthy sandwiches
    That I rely on always,
    Some maggi packets to kill my hunger,
    Some clothings to maintain
    My body temperature,
    Some boots for trekking,
    Some make-up kits & body lotions
    For my body care,
    The destination is a tough one
    Because never ever had have been
    For the mountain peaks,
    But still my body is ready for all the aches
    Because want to know nature more closely,
    Carrying lot of emotions on the way
    Leaving behind all the agonies,
    Sometimes a wide smile on my face
    Sometimes the body ache,
    Sometimes a loud laughter echoing
    Sometimes the tired feet burning,
    Sometimes the running heart beats
    Sometimes the thirsty throat,
    Sometimes the satisfying eyes
    Sometimes the sweating body,
    But still the anticipation to reach
    & know the nature, keeps me going,
    With bountiful pleasure, I keep trekking
    Seeing the aesthetic nature,
    Hearing the chirpy birds & creatures
    Hearing the waterfall from distance
    Seeing the beautiful sunset
    Seeing the blossoms
    Seeing the tall & dancing trees
    Feeling the cool breeze
    & the nature keeps me supporting
    To reach my destination
    There on the mountain peaks.

    Sunflowers, Sunshine

    So just today when I was traveling (which I do a lot these days), I saw a truck loaded with stuff I couldn't really make out and it was lying by the road on its side.

    Strangely, it didn't bother me. I just glanced at it like I would at a sunflower in the field, yes I saw sunflowers today morning which made me happy because I've not seen one in a long time.

    And then when I started to think why did the truck lying there didn't bother me, the first pop up said it's just another one which in fact is very disturbing because there comes the second pop up that I've seen too many trucks I have seen recently which constitutes to the fact that we have roads which are not developed as a result making travelling unsafe.

    We still have overloading of trucks which is driven by an exhausted driver who travels 26 days in a month to earn decent money to feed stomachs at home and push himself that he can do it and can't go back home early to see their eager faces to only disappoint them further for not having returned home with enough money.

    And that's when I read a sign which says : sadak pe masti, life nahi hai sasti.

    But is it enough? Are we really doing enough?

    blaring train slows down to tremble this busy platform,
    and numerous impatient feet tickles and swarm.
    my seat number matches the days i was away from home,
    a flash of memories strike me inside this jiggling dome.

    Some times in the journey towards the destination, the travel becomes more entertaining and mind blowing than the real destination.
