Walking Back to the Shelter

Walks are for many including me a time for contemplation. Thoughts entangle in mind.It always start from a point and gradually spiral around the entire life. We are undeniable centers of our own existences.  I only intend to share a few lines which came up in a walk shelter..

It is accepting and rejecting,
torturing and nurturing,
loving and hating,
punishing and forgiving,
protecting and abandoning,
promising and cheating,
forgetting and remembering,
heeding and ignoring,
beginning ,ending and sometimes postponing,
trusting and deceiving,
sleeping and waking,
convincing and dissuading,
creating and destroying,
concealing and exposing.
Life is all about flowing
between the darkness... and light that is following.

First Aid

    Just in time. God you really blessed me. I would have been busted if i had missed this bus which reaches exactly on my time. Well i looked around hopelessly as the lady who got in just before me occupied the last vacant seat available in the bus. You should have seen the victory that glowed on her face. Okay fine. Just half an hour and the next main stop will be reached soon and I'm sure to find a seat.So dreaming about a seat (at that point of time there was absolutely nothing else to think about too.!) I found a perfect place to stand just behind the driver clinging to the metal bars watching the road as viewed by he driver. I always consider it better to be pressed against the bars with the entire gravity resting upon your back , in a crowded bus,  than being sandwiched between someones torso and another's heavily oiled hair rubbing all over your face. At least you get to see some sunlight .

When history turns optional !

Well I was alarmed when I heard that .This is how the story goes...

 I spent a few hours of my weekends by helping this curious boy with his daily mathematics and science lessons. Out of my very old appetite to read some history texts , i ask him , " Which portion of history is being taught in school now?".

 He looks at me as i had asked something i never should have. He replies immediately , " I have opted  "so and so" instead of Social Science!".

I just want you to talk!

It wasn't a game of hide and seek
but building bridges with words, less bleak
          Come sit, just listen to me

          Beneath the shadow of this lofty tree
          about the lonely songs of the sleepless nights
          and the mighty wars with the thoughtless thoughts.

In the Hustle of SM Street

                                     Malabar was a region completely unknown to me for a long long time.Perhaps things that comes to us after a long wait is supposed to be the best we might get...for a person like me who loves the hustle and bustle of a labyrinth of streets SM street was in fact a heaven.Walking down the evenings of the noisy street is something i hold close to my heart when i leave Calicut. Pleasure to the senses especially to eyes and heart, the street is teeming with life as it gets darker and darker. you don't feel the need of security there ...its a free world ...a free man's world.      The things are many to see and hear and buy. You just keep walking and walking as if the paths are never going to end. Its like searching for something in a muddled cupboard,  pretending to not see the thing you badly want to find, even if you find it ; just for the pleasure of searching .    Isn't it strange that the excitement dies when you get what youwere searching for . The entire drama and beauty is to keep searching ....and searching......with the hope of getting it a promise that is going to be kept forever..     Perhaps this was the the real reason why the place apparently embrace the people who enters it and create an urge in you to return ...

ആകാശത്തിന് കുറുകെ 

കാട്ടുവള്ളികളില്‍ പൂത്തുലഞ്ഞ 
ഇളം ചുവപ്പ് പൂക്കള്‍ക്ക് 
ഏറെ സുഗന്ധമായിരുന്നു 
ഓര്‍മകള്‍ പോലെ 

ആകാശ നീലിമയില്‍ നിഴലിട്ടു 
നോട്ടങ്ങളെത്താത്ത ദൂരത്ത്
കാറ്റേറ്റുലഞ്ഞു സൌരഭം 
പരത്തുന്നവ ...പൊഴിഞ്ഞാലും വാടാത്തവ 
സൌഹൃദങ്ങള്‍ പോലെ
