I wish

I wish to see clearly.

I wish to send all apprehensions and doubt away.

I wish to breathe in green leaves and blue sky.

I wish to close my eyes to see beyond.

I wish.

And I shall.

Belief

One should spend his life in quest of the things he truly believe in. A caveman living in Stone Age, devoid of all the modern facilities, who strongly believed in the master who put the blanket on and off the sky, would have been as proud and passionate about his belief as few of us might feel today, towards some of the present day values, like ethics and morality – Even though these beliefs might get outdated some day in the future – Who knows?

To believe in something is to LIVE with full strength. I believe that true freedom lies in setting yourself a code you wish to live by, and placing firm belief in it.It is the essence behind everything.

Spring

Should I call him a thief, or an uninvited guest? Either way, I have no complaints of these visits 😀
Greed is said to be one of the deadly sins. But is it?
Before having your food – All worked up
After having your food – Siesta Time
Mangoes are coming

The Times

The squirrels have deserted the place. The stripes are nowhere to be seen.
The parrots have gone too. Such irritants they were. I liked sparrows more. But they have left as well.
The night has engulfed me like a blanket. Crickets are chirping all around me. They have stayed. They always stay. I wish I was as indifferent as they are.
The night is very still. I look up at the sky. I see the Moon smiling at me.
“You tried your best”, he said to me.
“Will you stay with me?”, I asked
“Till the end”, the moon assured me.

The days have been too cold and lonely. I looked at the fire. This is the last fire I have. Last fire from my last tree.

The tree is gone. Squirrels are not going to come back. Birds don’t want to do anything with me. What could I have done different? I looked at the axe lying next to me. You are the last possession I have, I said. And just like everything else, I will have to let you go too.

I see the flames going up as I put the axe into it. This will last for few minutes before the cold consumes me, I thought. I am going to sleep. May be I will find squirrels in the place I am going to. May be it will be warmer there. Maybe.

I miss my trees. I burnt them all. Could I have done anything different? I do not know.
