It was a midsummer evening, The plunging waves kissed the pale peach horizon, I stood at the beach watching the kites dance in the sky. My first-ever kite was borne away by the wind. However, the storm struck in time, And brought back my kite. I could never recollect the colour of the kite nor… Continue reading The Kite Catcher
To my little half
You were like a gale in the middle of the sea. I was so not welcoming you. With your tiny little hands, you held my ship. No more to sail; I waited at the bay, And stayed next you all day. Now day by day, you are ebbing away. A part of you in me… Continue reading To my little half
Mid 30 crisis – Give back my youth
Soaked in rain,I recalled the springtime of my life, Wild, carefree, blitheful days that I lavished with my younger self. Like a fledgling in the air, unbothered about the route, balancing the tides in the air. Gone with the wind are the days of my youth. The days are getting colder and bleaker; a touch… Continue reading Mid 30 crisis – Give back my youth
The God’s Garden
"What do you want to be?" asked the creator. Choose wisely; you are free to be a wildflower But, as a rose in my garden, you will be tended with care.

His sanguinity and rational thoughts never ceased to bewitch me. His inscrutable eyes gave me no clue. Did he feel… Continue reading Moment Lost
Spring may come and go but the coldness in me stays
Days passed, the flowers bloomed again. Sunlight unbroken by the clouds welcomed the spring. Mornings filled with the dawn chorus, nothing changed much. Engrossed in crofting, the desolation in me waned; the world seemed lively again. But as the nightfall sets in, gloominess engulfs me like a dementor's kiss. With no shadow for company, I… Continue reading Spring may come and go but the coldness in me stays
You cannot go back time and bring back what turned to dust. The days flutter with the her thoughts. Her little giggles and sparkly umber eyes flash only in your dreams. Life cannot be contained, so set the cage free
Back in action !!
Nippy Evenings !!
The Sun hid his visage behind the grey nimbus. Trees rustled for the wind's tantrum. Dampness filled all over the place, making the laundry undry. Unusual silence instilled the barn; one could only hear the frogs' croaking. The cattle lay silently chewing their cud, wondering if their master would come, As he never missed a… Continue reading Nippy Evenings !!
Karaikudi – Pillayarpatti – Thirukoshtiyur
Recently Pilliyarpatti temple got its Raja gopuram refurbished and the consecration happened in May 2017. We planned a trip to the womb entrepreneurs' in Tamil Nadu - Karaikudi. Solid 6 hr travel from Coimbatore to Karakudi via Natham, the shoddy roads disrupted our pleasant travel. In the nick of time, we entered the temple for… Continue reading Karaikudi – Pillayarpatti – Thirukoshtiyur
