MIDNIGHT DREAMS


Each night, long after the moon shimmers,
I see you with my eyes open.

The stars seem to tell me that you are
Watching me all the time.

I toss and turn in bed
Wondering what to say if ever
I get to meet you.

You have killed my slumber
And aroused the lover in me.

How do I punish you for that ?

You torment me and I allow it.
The sweet taste of the poison -
Keeps me alive in anticipation,
That one day you would plunge
Into the depths of my heart.

I shall trap you there forever
And be avenged.

My midnight dreams end with
The first rays of morning sun.

It swoons me into the sleep
I’ve been deprieved of in the
Dead of the night.

WAITING FOR YOU

Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.

And keep me waiting..

77 FICTION : TEAR FILLED EYES

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.

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…
