Hard Work Vs Luck


Giving up all the pleasures

Burning the midnight oil

Way beyond all measures

That’s how hard he toiled !


Day after day, night after night

Perseverance was his game

He never ever let out of sight,

His goal, his purpose, his aim !


But on one arduous occasion,

Luck gave him no favor,

Left his morale with abrasions

His will power wavered.


Disappointed and despondent,

He started doubting his merit,

Hard work was replaced by lament

Luck was something he did not inherit


But then one fine day, he resolved

Not to give up in the fight

Failure made him evolve

Into a person of great will and might


Numerous times in his struggle he fell

But he was never to be backed down

And steadily increased, his drive to excel

Toughest obstacle could not knock him down.


Again he fell, and got up

And the cycle continued

Till the time when even Luck asked him

“What have you got in you ?”


“Oh mighty warrior, the shining knight”

“I have tried my best to defeat you”

“But you bounce back every time

“How on earth, I have no clue”


Persistent effort is the secret, he said

Hard work is the key

 Luck – “I can hold no longer, take your success

Today, you have defeated me ! “

A Brother’s Sister


Cynosure of all eyes,

 I was, for three years long,

 Soon, I heard joyful cries

‘Look sweetie, your brother is born’.


 Tiny little hands, minuscule fingers,

So delicate he was to hold,

 In the hospital, by his side, I lingered,

 ‘Let him sleep, honey’, mum told.


I got my first & only sibling,

My very first friend,

This was just the beginning,

 Of a friendship that would never end.


Sharing toys and chocolates,

He was my partner in crime,

That hasn’t changed till date

Along the years, over the time.


Once a kid, now fully grown

Into a tall, handsome man,

So quickly, the time has flown

Twenty years is a long span


But, even after twenty years,

Our bond is very much the same

Still reveling, fighting, sharing  tears

Pulling each other’s leg, calling names !


I don’t get to see him much

Away from home, I live

But I always keep him in touch

Sense of closeness I want to give.


I want him to be successful

And lead a happy, sanguine life

Filled with pride and joy, blissful

Complete with children and a caring wife!


A Proud sister, I will always be,

I want to see him rise and shine,

Apple of my eye, he will always be

No matter how old he is, brother mine !!

Don’t judge me before you know me

           tumblr_mwq9bqqHOD1t06k0mo1_400                            dontjudgemequotes

To all the prejudice minds,

And people anxious to judge,

Who turn an eye blind

And shelter a ludicrous grudge,


Unaware of my strength,

Ignorant of my struggles,

You have watched my life at arm’s length

You don’t know my troubles.


Do you really make yourself believe

You have touched my soul’s every nook ?

My friend, the smiles and tears can deceive

I am not an open book !


I intend not to fool you,

Nor I wish your admiration,

But I also don’t want you

To judge me on preconceived notion.


You are free to have your opinion,

About me, my demeanor as a whole,

But do not let bias establish dominion

Over your righteous, sound soul.


Spend time to discover,

My desire and my intention,

Lift the bias cover

I am not an epitome of pretension.


Misunderstood by people, my intentions and gestures,

It is miserable to bear & see,

Even difficult when I know very well

Those people don’t know me


Love me, hate me, show me your ire

Once inside my heart, you see

Have an opinion as you desire

But don’t judge before you know me !

Dance Along


Dance, Dance
Dance to the beat,
Dance, dance
To music, tap your feet !

Dance, dance
Throw caution to the wind,
Dance, dance
Make your body swing !

Dance, dance
Let the rhythm flow,
Dance, dance
Let your face glow.

Dance, dance
Bring your friends to the floor,
Dance, dance
Groove and twirl to the core.

Dance, dance
Put your hands up in the air,
Dance, dance
With panache, elan & flair.

Dance, dance
Whenever you are sombre,
Dance, dance
Swirl around, don’t ponder.

Dance, Dance
What if you are not a pro*,
Dance, dance
You will steal the show!

Dance, dance
Dance with all your heart,
Dance, dance
It is more than just an art.




A Note to the readers: It might seem more of a lullaby or a nursery rhyme than a melody , but I had to incorporate the simplicity with which dance can have an indelible effect on a person’s spirit. Being a dance enthusiast myself, I feel very relaxed and at peace after a dance session. It is a stress buster and mood lifter for me and I enjoy it thoroughly. I am not a professional. I dance not to please or entertain others. I dance for myself ! Hopefully, you can try it too and experience the magic!

*pro : professional

Long Distance Love


From rising sun to the shining stars,
From Monday blue to the Sunday fondue
The world around seems incomplete
The missing piece is You !

 Seeing lovers in the park,
Hand in hand, strolling together,
My heart yearns for a nice little walk
But my wishes are tethered.

 Eating ice creams is no fun,
When there is none to share,
Oh how much I miss your affection
Your warmth, your care !

 My eyes want to see you,
My hands want to feel
And I don’t mean digitally,
But for real !

I knew it would be difficult,
I knew it would be lonely,
But I soothe my heart saying,
It’s difficult, but temporary.

I know very well you too reciprocate
Emotions of this sort
But you think I am the reason, not fate
For the distance that hath us apart.

I wish a radiant life for us,
For which, apart we have to live
But not for long, this fuss,
Togetherness to us destiny will give.

Nothing in this life comes without struggle
We too have our share,
Opposing families, unstable careers we have to juggle
Before building our lair.

But one day the miles will vanish,
The struggles we will defeat,
We will rejoice together, I promise
At our magical feat !

Till then hold onto the bond of love,
Remember me each day
After all,I live in your heart,
Not too far away!
