Why are you down, get up!,
Has anyone said anything to you?,
Why are you feeling rejected, you are still alive,
You are still growing, you are still learning,
Do you feel tied with these shitty rituals,
And the invisible chains of society.

You, yes you? Get up now, break the shackles,
Just be free, why are you thinking so much?
Do you have a fear of loosing your loved ones,
Or you don’t have the courage of taking a step,
You are loosing so much time in thinking unnecessarily,
If they really love you they will not leave you, keep that in mind.

Get up now, bring the change in the World,
You always wished for, put your foot forward,
Why are you crying? You are man enough, your limbs are still working,
You are learned enough to do anything you desire off,
Think about freedom, think about you,
See yourself in happiness, see yourself smiling, wipe your tears.

Get up now, break these locked doors,
Get into nature, feel the freedom nature gives you,
See the water, making its way, come whatever may, learn from it,
Pave your path, who’s stopping you ? No one, do it with conviction,
Lit up that fire within you, feel the heat of your desires and passion,
Mix that up with some air and be free, free from all mental agony.

Get up now, release yourself, rebuild that force from inside,
Strengthen your core, reignite the energy,
That once made you jump from heights, that once made you dive between waters,
That once made you laugh for no reason, that once made you love every human being,
Don’t let it die, it is who you are,
Fire it up now!

Get up now, remember those old times,
When people used to follow you, when they seek your guidance,
You were the most effective person in your clan,
You were a leader, You had power,
What happened to that ? Is it still there ?,
Yes it is, see inside, has it started burning ?

Get up now, see it burning inside, get excited,
Shed off this negative self image, you are one of a kind,

Let go off your fear, let go off your negativity,
You have a positive aura, feel it, feel it now,
Cry if you want, cry for one last time, feel free.

The flare of passion has started burning in your eyes,
Close your eyes, feel it, are you feeling the excitement, yes your are!

Get up now, what do you wanna do? What are you most feared off,
Do you want to have sex, go out have some sex,

Let them reject you, let them call you by names,
For once feel free, feel free of these worldly matters,
For once only care about yourself, give yourself immense love,
For once in your life, just BE YOU, just BE YOU!

A dreaded Love Story

Life can be weird sometimes, it puts you in situations you never think of, and how our mind builds up on that and create a psychology of its own is something which I never understood. Though I was raised in a lower medium class nuclear family, my childhood was no less than perfect. I was born and raised in an old house. It was on rent and our landlord rarely checked up with what’s happening on the first floor. The cupboard’s wood was ripped off, smitten with termite all over, during rains the ceiling used to leak as if someone has opened hell’s floodgates, and the best part, most of the doors were without latches including the bathroom’s door. But I was very happy there, happy to an extent, that sometimes I miss it, I dream of it.

There used to be a window in the bedroom through which we can see the veranda, the steps that leads to the terrace and a bit of sky. I don’t know when this weird thing started happening with me, maybe I was four or five years old at that time. I can’t remember the age properly, but I used to see someone standing behind that window at night, a silhouette of someone with long hair and a humanly body. At that time my mind was growing, I was in my learning phase. If I think of it now, that shape was most probably created through a refraction of light coming from the neighboring house. I used to be so scared that I hide myself behind my father’s back.

That thing grew up and I got used to it. In fact, at a point of time I was not afraid at all. I remember spending sleepless night just looking at that humanly figure. My kiddish mind was in love with her. But I didn’t knew that something dreaded was kept in store for me. As I got older, I felt my pillow cover being scratched by someone, I can hear those scratchy sounds. I had feelings as if something was crawling on my head, within my hair, making me tickle every time. I started having nightmarish dreams where I saw a ghostly woman passing through that window and trying to gain control over me. I saw skeletons, people dying, blood and a deep dark space with nothing but void. I had hallucinations of her standing in front of me, all red, fuming with anger, dancing in pain. But after sometime, it became just another part of my life which I started ignoring all together.

And finally, the time came when my parents decided to buy our own house, we shifted around 12 years back. As soon as the change happened, she was gone, no nightmare, no sounds, no dreams. I forgot about her, I was very happy with me and my life, everything was peaceful and calm. And damn, one day she suddenly came back after a gap of 5 years. This time she was more profound and visually clear. She was an ethnic Indian woman around 40 years of age, wearing a red dress, a sari in fact, with sensuous eyes and a deep desire of making a union with her male counterpart. I dreamt of her haunting and dancing in the bed room of my old house where I used to sleep.

And it all came back, the fear and the mental agony. I woke up with severe nightmares. Many a times I saw her sitting on my chest choking my neck, stopping my breath, I can’t move any of my muscles, I was thirsty at nights and no amount of water was able to quench my thirst, I felt like being taken over by someone. My energy was being sucked, as if someone was killing me slowly. It continued for a number of years. Once in a blue moon she came to gain control over me, and I wasn’t able to do anything, except being a spectator and watching her ripping me off.

And suddenly out of nowhere something happened, a dream which I can’t even dream in my dreams. It is laughable, but it is what it is. She was lying naked in front of me, I was over her and we were making love. She completely submitted herself to me, showering all her love and grace, feeling every bit of mine and vice versa. It was so intense that I woke up with sweats all over my body. And boom she was nowhere, not in my dreams, not in my nightmares, it has been ages, I haven’t seen her. Maybe, her desires were fulfilled, I don’t know. On that day I felt like I have let off some kind of burden from me. I was happy from inside, it was so serene, my mind was free. I was unstuck, I can think freely. It was so divine. That weird event or I should say a dream brought a drastic change in my life, it shifted upside down, I was more confident, more outgoing, more talkative, more responsible, achieved what I desired for.

If I think practically, this seems so unrealistic, so out of this world, so vague. What started of as a fear converted into a deep seated love. A love for a lifetime with someone who doesn’t even exist in the physical world. Is it a past life debt, a karmic connection or is it a chemical imbalance in my brain I don’t know. It might be a mental imagery I created during my time of loneliness, a visual image of someone from my past, or someone whom I loved dearly, or my subconscious mind playing with me, I am still looking for answers. Who was she? Where is she now? She is gone, I miss her sometimes, my first and only childhood love.

And he was all alone…

India, once acclaimed as one of the most powerful democracy, known to the world for its brotherhood, culture and high values, is in a constant state of fear. The year is 2029 and the rivalry between different sects and castes has ended up in a bloodbath. Our leaders are mute, they are hiding under the bed of uncertainty, watching the communities self destruct themselves. From past few years we are having a civil war.

But in the midst of all this hatred and violence, there stranded a boy, near a stream of water filled with industrial waste, carelessly rowing his paper boat, pushing it away with a broken twig, throwing pebbles at it, without even knowing that the piece of paper has given up the fight and almost melted away in the black waters. Once he realized that he had enough, he turned back to look for his mother to help him get on the wheelchair, but she was nowhere to be found.

Being a paraplegic since birth, he was too dependent on his mother. His mother worked as a daily wage worker in the nearby slum. His father, who worked as a blacksmith, died in an accident the day before he was born. His sister, who was around 21, was raped twice and thrown away in the rushing waters of Ganges. He is the only hope his mother is living for.

He looked here and there, it is already getting late. He started getting aberrant. Suddenly, with all the force in his belly, for one last time he yelled aloud for his mother and tears gushed out from his eyes. The sun was getting low, the dusky atmosphere is filling his heart with pain and darkness, he sat there stunned. He was all alone.

Everything happens for a reason ?

Why two strangers meet, is it because of karma or as our ancestors say, is it due to our past life debts. Whatever the reason be, but I am a firm believer in the fact that everything that happens in life happens for a reason. Sometimes the excitement and exuberance the person brings can be so overwhelming that it makes us forget all the sorrows and dejection we are facing in our life.

A rare incident happened to me last year on a social networking portal, where I used to waste most of my time. Did I attracted this event in my life, maybe, sub consciously.

I met a beautiful lady who was down and out with her relationship, who was hiding behind a fake profile, with which she wanted to teach her boyfriend a lesson, I really don’t know how. As soon as she send me a friend request, I knew that the profile was fake, my knowing of ethical hacking paid off. I did had a feeling that a guy is operating behind the scenes.

But a bit of rambling with her helped me in making sure that she is girl. A girl who lied to me, initially. But as we got to know more about each other, she became more open with her thoughts, with her life, with her relationships. I believe God has send her to be my friend, my well wisher or something more. I am glad that we did manage to make a connection as small as it maybe.

I do think about it a lot, as it was one of the rarest thing that happened to me. How can anyone be so known and yet so unknown. Are we a part of the divine conspiracy ?

My Idea of Love

1. Love = No Expectations

It is a well known fact that expectations kills a relationship, I couldn’t agree more. It’s human nature, at some point of time we start having expectations, and it can’t be changed. But it’s not about being selfish and asking for love in return, it’s about giving and only giving. And that doesn’t include giving up your ambitions, dignity or your individuality. The best example is our Nature. It works on the same principle, it gives you everything, that helps you to sustain your life, but does it ask for anything in return? Love is not about give and take, love is only about giving. Expectations converts individuals in a relationship into a magnet with their similar sides facing each other, when placed together they will repel. It is as simple as that.

2. Love is not Enough

Yes, love is not enough, if you love someone that doesn’t mean that you are compatible. Love happens, it”s a natural process. But true love comes with respect, humility, trust and commitment, that needs to be exist on both sides of a relationship. A number of my friends, got into a relationship, because they felt the initial spark. But later on they found that they are incompatible, they had fights, they didn’t respect each other. And it ended with a breakup. I don’t know why people curse love for that. Look for trust, respect and honesty in a person, Love is just an after-effect.

3. Give yourself the much needed Self Love

Don’t be needy or desperate. Work on yourself, love yourself as an individual first. Kiss yourself, brag about yourself, give yourself gifts. Do things with you as if you are doing it with your significant other. If you want true love, look for it inside, it is lying somewhere deep down there. Love doesn’t exists when there is any dependence. Try to be a better person, never stop growing, both on physical and mental level. Attain your goals, achieve something in life. Become valuable, create your importance. Go out, live your Life.
