the calm within…

dark clouds brew up…

a bolt of lightening but he doesnt budge…

the wind picks up…

blowing dust, leaves, his shirt and his hair…

a tempest in the making…

threatening to destroy one and all…

he should be reaching for cover…

but he walks on…

in the moment of panic…

a strange, really strange…

calm he has discovered…

inexplicable really…

but there is this quite hope…

this new belief…

and it lingers in his mind…

he walks on as the rain starts pourin…

he lifts up his head, ready for the challenge…

smiling in the fury of the rain…

new avenues to be conquered…

so will he….

Amen !

    Battling the fury
    of a maddening wind
    and
    khunnas wala rain
    he feels
    rivulets of water
    descend within
    trying to find dry spots themselves.
    Drenched,
    he stops,
    drunk on visions
    of pakodas,
    masala cheese,
    and pudina chai;
    shrugs away
    the sweat mixed rain,
    and slowly extracts the phone
    from his
    deep drenched pockets…
    Taps it,
    lifts it to his dripping ears,
    takes a deep breath,
    starting a torrent of tears….
    ….
    “Black ka Berry, tu bhi chhod diya mujhe ?”….

    it too,
    is shedding tears
