Untitled Poem:

When i was at a very dark point recently, i wrote this:


4 days shut in my mind

4 days – the longest – yet to find

The reason behind the sadness

Why does my brain let the darkness



Will it get better today?

Will work keep it at bay?

My stomach growls

My heart howls

For happiness


The light shines bright

Just for a moment brilliant

Then the dreaded thorn

Digs its claws in grasping



Success as it draws me back inside

A frightful slide

Into the blackness

A simple word – a simple phrase

An utterance


“Not Impressed” it says

In black and white and a whizz

Goes around in my head

How dare they – do they not see

They are hurting me?


A dagger into my heart

Gripping and gasping

For air – for life

Rejection clear


5 days go by no more clearer

But with a flurry it becomes nearer

The time where I choose

Between life or a bruise

    MY DEBUT NOVEL is coming out by march / april 2014…… i generally post
    excerpts of my novel, may be poem or few lines on my blog and i prefer
    writing on social issues…. am new to blogging, …..please read my posts
    and leave your suggestions, feedbacks… help me to promote my
    novel….please share my posts and blog links with your contacts,
    please tell your friends that my novel is coming up.

    My debut novel is based on a real life inter-community love story.
    It’s not just a simple romantic love story with the typical spicy
    stuff. This love story is a voice of the Indian youth against the
    existing notions and ideologies in the Indian society against
    Inter-community love (inter-caste and inter-religion love).
    Our society, our parents, our family still believes that love with
    someone out of your community is not good. They consider it to be a
    shame for the family, a violation of the cultural values and ethics.
    Every year, more than 1000 youngsters in India either commit suicide
    or they are killed just because of the fact they fell in love outside
    their community. My novel is an appeal to our society to stop
    believing in these old thoughts and insane beliefs. The novel raises
    the concern over the problems youth face from the families (sometimes
    even the worst situation arrives) through a real life inter-community
    love tale and tries to logically, spiritually make people understand
    that love should be allowed to live free. It shouldn’t be constrained
    in the name of caste or creed.

    Hope that this issue which exists in more than 85% of Indian families
    will get a voice through my novel which will be heard, thought upon
    and then accepted in the coming years. The time has come to bring a
    changes and make this nation a safe and happy place for true lovers,
    where every true love story should be made successful.

    Thanks. hope to get your support.

    With regards
