I wont own you

Can you pick up those papers?
and tear them?
where prejorative are the shadows
... of the mind
along with those words
that once brought me to life
Take me to an unknown place
where people function to disown
Where lilies would sway
and a silver lining
and my being has lost its way
I wont own you
I wont hear you out
You dont belong to me now,
In a far off land ,
I live to die,
I live to derive a note
A note that would speak of
the awesomeness lost
and a crude goodbye
to my sound of goodness
where I would be the one crowned

I have dissatisfied the monochromity in me,xenophobia aside by the glossy lights that enrapture the numinous as soon as I looked out of my flight window,into the world of Dubai.I had a french man beside me asking the flight attendants for earplugs and sighing in french for two toddlers behind us,one of whom who was still not convinced that the Emirates flight was actually an aeroplane.However the scene looked coldly glittery.It was as if the city was alluring me to kiss it.So I moved my head a little forward to get a glimpse of it.Though not a very different scene from the one you would have from a flight to Mumbai.As we landed I took the transit route.I had a few hours before I could take the next flight to Kenya.There I was alone.From Swarovski to Vertu,Dior to Valentino,Volkswagon to Ferrari,name it and everything is up for sale.Millions of people travel every year through this route to market.Heaped with a Rolex watch,Givenchy shoes,a Gucci t-shirt and Moschino Perfumes,I was content.I reached home seated beside a man who had an invitation for me to the Intercontinental Nairobi for an eduactional fair as an Indian in Kenya.

It has been 3 days now
and  a dozen reasons why one should visit Kenya

1.African Safari
2.Masai Mara
3.Marine life/Walk at the beach in Mombassa
4.Pristine nature
5.Kind and soft spoken people
6.Feeding the giraffe at the Giraffe Manor in Nairobi
7.The famous Flamingos at Lake Nakuru
8.The Rift Valley
9.Migration of some two million wildebeest
10.Lake Victoria
11.A sip of the famous Tuskan beer
12.Standing on the Equator
13.Experiencing a culture of British colonialism,some forty two tribes of Kenya and the local/Nairobian pulse

Still to do--

Mountaineering at Mt kenya.
Visiting Naiberi camp,Eldoret club in Eldoret at Kaptha Ghat Road on the way to Uganda.Some golf and spa in the deep forest.
Listening to the rythms of the Samburu tribe

This experiennce is going to be one of a kind.

I love Kenya.
Some of my fondest memories here in Africa ....

See you next year in India !!

There was a time I hated being cornered.I didnt like being centred either.I wanted things to work my way.I wanted to be in control.I wanted to possess,yet I didnt want to be possessed.And I felt completely alone.The trick was to dig deep in the dirt yet come out safe.Impassivity became an adventure.I took pleasure in guilt,because I didn't own it.I was forcing myself to be something I was not.And I wont deny, it still exists in me.I dwelled in pedantry,in futility,in excessive want.I felt worthless,frustrated.I was however unaccountable for what was going around me.Call me spoilt,but I dont blame myself completely.Escapism was the one way I could feel what I wanted to feel.I wanted to narrow myself as that girl,who was different.Who was strong.Who was bright.People often called me a "good girl".Though I never really understood what they meant.Today,I am responsible for what I do and what I say.I am responsible if I say yes to a relationship.I am responsible if I say no to my ambitions.I am aware of the consequenes.I am aware what I give is what I get.I am aware that I have let go of certain people,relationships.I am moving to the next level here.What I do is what I am.What I feel is what I am.I am sending this messege to the universe well aware that karma exists.Yes its a hell of a bitch.
I am writing to vent.To feel what I have felt so long.Its all in the purity of the purpose.If you want it,you get it.No extrinsic force can change that.The power is within us.
Life is truly beautiful.The mantra is to give a lot to this world.To relax,to be happy and make others happy.
Theres alot more to what you have.Theres alot more to you than you can imagine.

Something I wont look at in the same way

I ask myself in ignorance,
Should I rub shoulders against all odds?
Should I cry till I find God?
I desperately seek a voice
when a shallow picture sinks in...
I squint in the dark
walking away from the luminous
that speeds up behind me
to swallow to put me beside
till I am lost in the track.
I penetrate the static inside me
before its to late
to thrill,
to take pride
In the lost self
to relish the taste of the past
when I know,
I am not lost
I am here
Not going anywhere
Just that the world seems upside down
And something I wont look at
in the same way

Swift drifting nature would carry,
the amusing flow of liquid,
where I feel powerless,
down under the mass of water
I seek a movement of my arms,
I seek to find
lost parchments of loneliness,
that you found for me,
And I would shed tears
that would beguile,
the inner most expectation,
like giving birth to the dead,
that my powerful legs nest,
and cry out the enormous,
where I found you amongst,
millions of colorful gravels,
the serene sand,
unable to make you move

Being Myself.............

I juggle with the coalescing of wisdom with experience,the calm and being a rebel,where some obscure denomination could harness the beauty and if identified could mercilessly salute the rational.I have come across the obtuse eyes of the jilted,the enemies far enough to dwell in my optimistic fervours to protect my identity.Only if it all could stem from self possession,I would believe in the flow of being a woman.But that doesnt mean I dont love being feminine or being born the way I am.Just as I say,vulnerability is alluring till innocence begets confidence, I wish I could follow it.The most charming part about being myself,is feeling independent,faithful and warm.I was always a quiet child and silence has been my most powerful weapon.I sometimes simulate to be a worker for mankind.I help my family,my friends,encourage them and believe I am serving the world.My mind is unable to see the bigger picture.The impoverished.Perhaps I dislike sadness.I dislike the pain in human.I am suffering from a disease we all suffer.I am selfish and guilty.I would rather be resolute in my lame attempts to conquer.Even in the most insignificant pictures and I start to conquer the world.A better place for all to live in.
As I always say,I wish I was stronger,less reckless.I wish I could enjoy the inane.The sweet nothings of the the indiscreet angels.In a never halting,never morose world to speak out,voice those prayers and destroy the dicord into the evil.

I am just a Summer Girl !

Is this the little chutzpah in me?
provoking indigence,
where my heart entices the glamour,
my mind advoacting the chaste

I was immobile,
crying for a rich guy,
playing with an artist,
Mind games...............
they sought the hidden behind,
a wrought breast,
the reserved unrequited passion,
that reminds me of forlorn,
till I find another at my doorstep........

Knock Knock!
"Whose there?"
"A smile and a face,
with a clown's humour,
to sadden when you leave
to brigthen when you peep,
sliding across the place,
where I found you,
making intense movements,
disastrous by the inexpliacble,
I come with a knight's demeanour
like Lochinvar,
And sabotage your life,
till you find another"

"Do I need you?"I ask
I want to feel weak in my knees,
slow like the nature,
I dont want to hurry,
I have been there
I want to feel warm,
To feel space,
To laugh and let be,let go
Let go of me,
Let me be
I die now for you,
reborn to my childhood

Like the summer girl,
I always was,
happy and sweet,
unaware of the world
behind those piles of books,
I belong there
Into my fabulous dreams

I keep my swagger!!

Should I feel masculine,
beneath this labyrinth of sullen grey
I believe I cant play dirty nomore,
in disfigured strength,
In pretentious monotonous,
... when time is servile
I command to run,
around these large spaces
amidst the squall of summer rain
where infinity is my territory..........

Or chehra dekhe mone holo....................

আমাকে দিল ও দেখা
ওর  চেহারা  দেখে মনে হলো
কত পেয়েছে ব্যথা
ওর  আওয়াজ যেরম
ওর  করুন চরিত্র ছায়া
আমার শরীর  দমকে ওঠে
ওর  নির্লিপ্ত হাঁসি
কেন যেন এই মূল্যহীন সময় তা
ঢেউএর মতন ভাসে
ওর  জন্য
ওর স্নেহ আমার মন বিচিত্র করে
কিছু যেন আমি বুঝিনা
এক শিশুর মতন কাঁদি

Having a sunny day ...

I take pleasure in you.................

The repititive voice of waves,
whispers my name,
caresses your arms
as you float across the vast ocean
kissing your body,
as you breathe those sighs,
the fluid
recontructs against the warmth,
expresses impunity,
yet touches the very depths of your palms,
your insides,
like subtle creaks that taste,
the salt of nature,
in recklessness
in fault,
in want,
in hunger
in between pearls of laughter
I take pleasure in you,
since forever

When I look in the mirror...............

I was born in a cocoon,whipped with criticism,love and anger.Taking for granted the times ,when I look at myself,at the people around me and being unable to categorize them as beings but something that God daubs in the canvas of the world again and again.And when I come across someone whom I may admire,I believe its the commencement of the new me.The verve,the requiem for the self is being different,not blithe.There are times again, when I  yield into the cantankerous lot,sometimes even to myself,I sin.I sin to my identity where ignorance requiting wrong cannot win over.But this futile persisitence in my head,unlike the puritan or the draconian,or a self posessed being declaring some misanthropic euphoria,I believe in what I do or I try to do.

I have been cruel to myself.Sometimes to people I love.I am trying to denounce myself by conveying my life's melancholia,idecisiveness.Enrapturing the prisioner in me.Setting afire the callous in me.
I have been obesessive and impulsive.I have lived in nostalgia,where I discovered my constructive self.

Though,I still look in the mirror.I still look at myself.I dont know if I love enough,but I care.
Who am I?What am I to do NEXT?

I have built a wall of respect.Should I break it?
Should I drag myself away from this self made home?

Or should I die again,amongst the people?
Like living an unsuitable abstinence?

So I begin to fret once again...........................

I have spent my days in gentle sinning...............

The title of the post has been taken from the book"The Descendants"by Kamala Das.
I always had a thing for the zany,the lewd,the subtle,the attention seeker.It went like a stray-dog hunting project where I wanted to build myself an identity.I wanted to bring myself a name.Feeling proud to be an Indian yet being an exponent to an intolerant society.Accepting flaws and accentuating it.Understanding aesthetics.But somewhere I  went wrong.I seemed anti-social.From being in school to now being in college,I still have an impulse to stand out.Away from the caluminous,but the genuine,the original,the creative.I am still on the look out for the gross that could could seem magnetic.In my words,in my actions,in my beliefs.
I am becoming something else everyday.
I am irascible.
I am not me.
This is just an I........................

I have spent my vitality,
against myself, against you,
Where I always put a cross against my chest,
half dreaming to still mar all those who had an eye on you

Come to me,
beneath these tender times,
softer forms,
untouched grounds

When I would  make the babies,
the aroma in my house,
die a scornful death in your arms
till I feel the worth in my womb
and perception in my senses

I have not given up,
and I fly across the land
like you would when you took those fleeting steps
for all that you loved

Now,I have stiched myself to a notorious bed,
and I am waiting for you
to make the most out of ourselves
to redeem to make new

Knife my heart,
for you are my envy,
I cant let you loose
