Testament – Hayden Carruth

Testament  So often it has been displayed to us, the hourglass with its grains of sand drifting down, not as an object in our world but as a sign, a symbol, our lives drifting down grain by grain, sifting away — I’m sure everyone must see this emblem somewhere in the mind. Yet not only…

An Eternal bond!- Nehal

When I Spoke to the Sky; My journey to love ends in you! He covered me from all over Went into hiding behind a moon, stars, rainbows, clouds,…never showed his real face! When I told the wind; I dreamt to be with you! A strong companion,I see in you. He scattered me all over Taking…

Do you hear it? – Kisan Sosa

Do you hear it? In a drop, the rain sings in chorus, do you hear it? In the seed, lush green crop waves, do you hear it? On the open road ants have come out in a row Listening to the footfall , the walls are fissured, do you hear it? In a busy workshop…

दिल के काबे में नमाज़ पढ़ – नीरज

दिल के काबे में नमाज़ पढ़ दिल के काबे में नमाज़ पढ़, यहां-वहां भरमाना छोड़। सांस-सांस तेरी अज़ान है, सुबह शाम चिल्लाना छोड़। उसका रुप न मस्जिद में है उसकी ज्योति न मंदिर में जिस मोती को ढूंढ़ रहा तू, वो है दिल के समुन्दर में। मन की माला फेर, हाथ की यह तस्वीह घुमाना…

Mister God, This Is Anna

Anna was only four years old when Fynn found her on London’s fog-shrouded docks. He took her back to his mother’s home, and from that first moment, their times together were filled with delight and discovery.

થોડું અંગત અંગત..A letter from Father Valles

નવા વર્ષની શુભેચ્છાઓ! આજે જે પત્ર રજૂ કરું છું એ પત્રવ્યવહાર શરૂ થયા પછીનો પહેલો કે બીજો જ પત્ર હશે. એઓના પુસ્તકો, જીવનકથા વાંચીને મને ઉદ્ભવેલા કેટલાક પ્રશ્રોનો જવાબ અહીં આપવામાં આવ્યો છે. વાત તો સાવ ટૂંકી ને ટચ જ છે પણ સમગ્ર જીવન જીવવાની ફિલોસોફીનો નિચોડ અહીં છે અને નવા વર્ષે આનાથી સારું મનન-ચિંતનનું…

मराठी गज़ल

मराठी गज़ल तुझ्या समोर मला गझल गायचा आहे, गिळून घोट कडू, चंद्र घायचा आहे. विकून दर्द ईथे दाद ध्यायची असते, बुडून खोल मला शोध ध्यायचा आहे. हरेक शब्द ईथे घालितो गळ्यात गळा, अनोळखी तरिही गाव व्हायचा आहे. मिठीत कैद मला तू जरी किती केले, अजून भेटीचा दिवस यायचा आहे. मनात पाउस हा वाट पाहतो आहे,…
