Wood-smoke

“Let’s go for a walk……

was what I had planned to say.

I’ll gently take

and hold her hand

then find a quiet spot and

ask her

to ask questions……

was what I had decided to do.

Of Djinns, Chudails and other such para(normal)phernalia!

“The dark dangerous forest is still there, my friends. Beyond the space of the astronauts and the astronomers, beyond the dark, tangled regions of Freudian and Jungian psychiatry, beyond the dubious psi-realms of Dr. Rhine, beyond the areas policed by the commissars and priests and motivations-research men, far, far beyond the mad, beat, half-hysterical laughter… the utterly unknown still is and the eerie and ghostly lurk, as much wrapped in mystery as ever.” – Fritz Leiber

In recent times, I attempted to pep-up my non-existent social life and decided to join a heritage walk. With a great sense of déjà vu, I experienced some unbelievably insufferable creatures at this event and, “bloody chudails” was what I felt like yelling out.

इक घर

“मकान कई मिले , घर न बना पाए ” – मेघना
कुछ ऐैसी बात कह दी
जो दिल को छू गई,
चारदिवारियों के
इस कठोर बंजरात में
उस,
किसी,
अब
दुर्लभ होते
घर की ख्वाहिश
ज़हन में ज़हरीली
हूक मार गई।

हमेशा की तरह

मेरे
ज़हन में बसने वाली
वह

हमेशा की तरह
उसको
