There were so many things
I wanted to tell you,
But you went away before
I could gather my courage.

Years rolled by
But you never answered my letters.
I thought you had
Forgotten me.

The rains brought you back
To my doorsteps.
You were a homeless tramp,
A lost man in the battle of life.

Little did I know
What you were upto.
I smiled at my luck
My dream was turning real.

But you betrayed me again.
You repaid me too well.
Slit my throat when I was sleeping,
Dreaming of you and me together.

Now I write in my own blood
The saga of cruel pain you gave me.
Avenge I shall,
But how can I hurt my own love ?

Nicely written poem.

They say in samskrita Kshamaya dharitri Naari (Forgiveness is the essence of a lady). But many seemed to have pushed her over the edge that forgiveness becomes impossible.

Tume satare gotia kabhi :) ?

Mua jane, bhuatkichi aame kahu ba lekhu kintu aame saada bele gotia prasana ra uttar paeinki jeevan sara kujibuli thau. There is no life beyond your imaginations and no love beyond your life. Many times it sounds me as if a fake reality or maybe a bitter truth.

Pinku said…
that was very nice...

unlike Suresh would like to quote that the female of every species is deadlier than the male. and nothing is as dangerous as a woman spurned...

so avenge you must...if only to stay true to your gender...

Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.


The eyes searched someone. The one she could run to at times of need. In someone’s lap, she would pour out all her troubles.
Nobody came.  She grew up, rimmed her eyes with kohl. But they could never hide her tears.
No one came when her soul was ripped apart. No one heard her cries. No one mourned her loss.
After  a while, she thought that tears were a part of the eyes.

Is there any viable alternative to AFSPA?

The mere mention of armed forces evokes the image of courage, bravery and discipline in India. However, in north-east India and Jammu and Kashmir, the picture is vastly altered. Military force is synonymous with fear, brutality and suspicion. The main reason behind this contradictory public image is the “draconian” law, Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act. It has vested the armed forces with absolute power mainly to aid fight against terrorism and insurgency. Several unprovoked arrests, tortures, rapes and deaths go unnoticed under the wraps of AFSPA.Unmarked graves have been found in the valley. Fake encounters and disappearances make headlines.  At times, it is a case of mistaken identity. Violence in Jammu and Kashmir has increased since implementation of AFSPA in 1990. Similar incidents are reported from the north-eastern states. 
Jeevan Reddy Commission (2005) had recommended repealing AFSPA and bringing a humanitarian law in place. However, no concrete steps have been taken by th…
