India

City of star,
Are you shining just for me?

I'm letting life hit me until it gets hurt. Then, I'll hit it back. It's a class rope-a-dope.

Just like Lord Voldemort's horcruxes, some parts of my soul are in my works.

Not like a Cinderella story

Going back in time, to make everything fine!
‘Twas a windy day, in the magical month of May.
Long drives to the island, to have a burger out!
I spent ‘those’ 30 days with you running around.
Leaning in, I’m on my way to stranger things.
Honey, I’m used to your mood swings!

Out and about, tryna figure out!
We’re Vibin n’ thrivin, you keep me inspiring!
Cause it’s not like a Cinderella story,
We’re rising up to the glory!!!

Gotcha shades on, I’ll love you from dusk to dawn!
We got caught in the moment, nothing to comment,
Roaming by seas of green, it's the story of a girl that dreams!
Sunsets in the paradise, your smile got me paralyzed!
Leaning in, I’m on my way to stranger things.
Honey, I’m used to your naughty winks!

Out and about, tryna figure out!
We’re Vibin n’ thrivin, you keep me inspiring!
Cause it’s not like a Cinderella story,
We’re rising...

Whenever rain falls

Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
Mangoes in the summers, and
Baby, we’re flowers in the spring.
The warmth of the gala in the chill
And we collapse away in the fall.

But 
I wanna touch you like raindrops,
Tie you in my love lock.
I’m the one you’re made for
Together we can win wars.
Whenever rain falls
Tip, tip, tip, tip, tip, tip, tip

Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
When clouds cover the atmosphere
You’re the one I want here
In the rain, we kiss under the coat
Boat of our love left the shore

But
I wanna touch you like raindrops,
Tie you in my love lock.
I’m the one you’re made for
Together we can win wars.
Whenever rain falls
Tip, tip, tip, tip, tip, tip, tip

You made me complete
Cool down the heat
Like the rain,
You erased my vains.
Baby, let’s meet under the drizzle
Tip, tip, tip, tip, tip, tip, tip

Useless regret- we'll have

Wanted to make memories with you,
But I never knew,
One day, you’ll yourself become a memory.
It’s what that has damaged me!
Wish we had some more time,
You made my life sublime.
I had you when I was nobody.
Now, I’ve everything but not you to see.
 You gave me a new perception to see
But also took a part of me.
Now, there’s no use of crying hard,
‘Cause I know that you’re gone very far!

Life!

Life is mysterious!
One can try to define it,
Who knows what lies behind it?
Everyone has his own definition.
Do we create life or we are life's creations?
Someone's luxurious, someone's poor,
Someone's sweet, someone's sour.

As many people as many lives,
Someone's dull, someone's bright
Is life a science or philosophy,
Fiction or reality,
Scintillating boon or catastrophic calamity?
Ah! It's so tricky!!
But we are lucky,
'cause we are gifted with this wonder.

So, we have to use it wisely.
Therefore, let's fully live life,
Thank God and be nice.
'Cause it is given to us for a limited time,
To work and make our own identity.

Happy Diwali

Today is Diwali,the festival of India which is celebrated by people of many religions. It is one of the biggest festival of Hindus.
I know that y'all know that it is festival of lights and traditionally it is so. But due to commercialization and investments people started associated it with crackers which is extremely poor. But luckily w are now shifting back to celebrating tradition Diwali.
As it is said- 'Sarve bhavantu sukhinah' and 'Vasudeva Kutumbakam' which means 'everybody stays happy' and 'the whole world is my family.'
So, a very happy Diwali to all of you and a very happy halloween, in advance.
Right now I'm preparing to visit my ancestral village to worship or what we call to do pooja. For a city guy, it is difficult to adjust there but also kinda fun.
Please comment if you wanna know anything about the festival or my country as I want to know more about Halloween but not from...

The story of my life: #animind

"But he's so cute and innocent, mam!" he cried. "I'm sorry. I can't do it."
"Just do it. It's nothing to feel sad about." her teacher comforted him."By dissecting him, you'll learn and  then you'll apply that learning to the welfare of the mankind."
'Of the mankind,' then why the hell, I'm the one to be sacrificed.
He took me with a sympathetic look and kept me on the dissecting plate. Then he handcuffed me and started to pray.
I just had that much amount of time left of my life that he'd take to pray.
I remembered that my parents were also sacrificed the same way. I was used to torture 'cause I was bred in that lab only but I never knew that I'd die there as well.
I was also praying. Yeah, I can talk but you don't understand what I say or don't want to. 
He opened his eyes, took the injection and inserted it right...

Just loved you

I found light in the darkest nights,
I fell in love with a stranger at first sight.
Though I know she’ll never love me as I do
But still my heart says, “I love you!”
Yeah, “I loved you and will always do!”
‘Just loved you!’
 
I met you when I was in disguise!
Your casual touch, gave me new life.
Though I know you’ll never ask for a clue,
But still my heart says, “I love you!”
Yeah, “I loved you and will always do!”
‘Just loved you!’  
 
I see you whenever I close my eyes!
Say you ‘Hi’ with a thousand byes.
Though I know we’ll never make it through
But still my heart says, “I love you!”
Yeah, “I loved you and will always do!”
‘Just loved you!’  
Loved you, ohh……I loved you!
Yeah, I love you. (Love you!)
Forever……….However
Just loved you……….

If Adam marries Steve

“If Adam marries Steve, then both of them will go to hell!” she told her 7-year old.
“But why?” he asked.
“Because it’s a sin!” she replied.
“But mommy, last week you told me God has made everyone as it is for a reason.” 
“Yes dear.”She replied.
“So, he made them so that he can punish them!” 
“No, for God, everyone is equal!” 
“But mommy............” 
“It’s time to sleep, dear!” she answered.
