When in dawn
I open my eyes
Stretch my arms
Intoxication of love
Flows inside
Cuddle me back
In your embrace
Even if I fight
I play for
A little while
Hold me tight
Kiss me deep
Passion seal
Bask me again
In your love
Elude the moments
Blend as one
Dawn will be dusk
When our love
Will loose
Track of time!!!

Radha Krishna is the epitome of love. They are institution of love. Though my Indian friends do not need any introduction to them as well as their glorious, exemplary, and extraordinary love story but for my all other readers, here is a brief. They are a Hindu deity of Indian origin and worshipped across the world.

Radha Krishna or as lovingly they are called Radhe Krishna meaning Radha Ke Krishna (Krishna belongs to Radha) and if you might be wondering why I am never writing Krishna Radha is because Lord Krishna has placed the importance and esteem of his love Radha so high that he told his devotees her name will always be taken before his name. Lord Krishna says if you worship me it may happen that I may forget to grant your wish and alleviate your pain but if you chant Radha’s name then without any further questioning and reasoning your wish is granted now and forever.

They were childhood lovers, with Radha as beautiful as moon and Krishna as the epitome of deep dusky façade as intense and sensuous as dark evening. Lord Krishna and Radha descended on earth from heaven to preach humankind important and esteemed lessons of life and the legend and example their love story has placed is just incomparable. Words will never be able to justify the narration of the sacrifices and depth of their love story.

Krishna told I am the “LOVE” which means love is equivalent to divine and this is the reason it is devoid of logical reasoning, definitions, and questioning. When it’s Love then it is just Love and nothing else.

The million years ago story tells that Radha was elder than Krishna, no one actually ever discusses and knows about their caste and creed, they even never got married or lived together but still they were bind and blend in Love. According to the mythological tales, Krishna was an irresistible charmer and was always surrounded by innumerable admirers and female lovers around but only one he ever loved was Radha.

Krishna loved her and admired her more than anything else in this world. They say that heavenly bliss lies in Krishna’s lotus feet and Krishna used to lovingly and gently press Radha’s feet whenever she was tired to give her ease and comfort. This gesture is so out of the world that mere words won’t be able to define and justify it’s beauty and grace.

Some incidents in his life defines that when he became the emperor he had 16,108 queens in his life but there was, is still and will always be only one Radha in his life and beyond. Despite that due to some reason and predefined acts in his life he had to marry 16, 108 girls but even today after millions of years only Radha’s name is taken with him and we do not even properly remember the name of his queens. They are worshipped, admired and prayed together. They are one SOUL just being called by different names. They are eternal and so is their LOVE.

A tribute on VALENTINE'S  DAY to my VALENTINE divine couple~

Your glorious love saga is as exemplary as for generations to follow
The halo of love is so magnificent even radiance of countless stars can’t match the aglow
The eminence is so elevated even in zillion years no one has been able to touch the zenith

Your are the pioneer and your are the LOVE
With your name it starts and with only your name it ends
Your eternal love chronicle is the essence of grace and poise in this universe

The purity and essence of love you painted sages wasted their life to discover
For you said LOVE is a feeling undefined and demands selfless devotion
A feel whose depth can never be unearth and grace on earth can never be traced

The significance of your beloved’s name you positioned across the universe
Radha’s names is mandatory before anyone takes your name
She cherished and worshipped only your love in her heart since birth

Your legend defines the chastity of rhythms your flute played
With each beat and every pace they only echoed Radha’s name
Aura of love was diffused all around whenever your togetherness sparkled

Love is not only to cherish it demands candor and lifetime surrender

Ages have crossed and million assessments your love faced
With each one the integrity of your love has moved only a step ahead

Your love is admiring and it deserves a token of reverence
The eternal bond in which you both blend I adore and glorify

Radhe-Krishna your LOVE has left a lasting impression on my soul forever!!!


On this valentine I wish that our life is sparkled and filled with love as profound and graceful as the love of Shri Radha Krishna!!!
Grant us blessings to get “LOST IN ETETNAL LOVE” <3

Love is a feeling~

Don’t we sometimes wonder what LOVE is? Plethora of poets, writers, and sages across generations has written about it and they are still writing about it. I believe it is the most widely written “topic” across the globe. None of the writer’s writing has remained untouched by this no matter how vast they write, how different they write or as a matter of fact how much brilliance or sarcasm their writings carry. LOVE has often been the focal point. If not been in the form of love between a male and female then in some other form because I feel~” LOVE is a universal feeling and its spectrum is very broad”.  Love binds everyone and it is the essence of every relation.
Love has at times been the sole inspiration for writings.
How come this emotion alone carries the responsibility of writings of so many writers and poets? So much is written which is not only so beautiful yet it is always so different and at times I am left awestruck. So much is written before, so much is written now and I believe much more will be written in years to come and ages for sure.
So what is so great about this feeling? What is so extraordinary about the emotion? A miniscule attempt to define in my words...
As every coin has two sides so is this feeling and I believe that the other feeling I am talking about has also got similar intensity just like LOVE but since I have promised myself that till Valentine’s Day I will post only about love so I will write about the other feeling sometime later. This VALENTINE I will just spread LOVE...
Spread the MAGIC..
Feel the LOVE...

Love is a feeling~
Sages have been worshipping since ages

A magical divine wish~
With uncontrolled joyous bliss

Sweetest crime~
Ready to commit for lifetime

The first emotion~
Born with universe creation

Against all odds~
The only reason to behold

Depth of ocean~
With secrets unravelled and undefined

Love is the only key~
To unlock hidden mysteries

Intoxication diffused~
Deep within cherishing soul

Composure of heart ~
Which yearns to forever hold

Serenity of twinkling stars~
When they shine in full moonlight

Essence of celestial blessings and power~
Love is as graceful as divine!!!

Being a Girl~III (FINALE)

Children are known as the reflection of God because the innocence of their heart and purity of their soul is equivalent to divine. This is the reason that whenever a child smiles in the sleep our elders say they are having chatter and natter with God. This makes me smile as well now because I so love children. I have never seen anything more pure and beautiful than a child smiling in his sleep. No matter how stressed I am or through whatever pain I am going through when I hold an infant in my hands my stress melts down and I forget everything else in the world. I am in joyous mood once again.
But still I believe and you all will also definitely somewhere consent with me over the fact that a girl child is more caring, more thoughtful, and feels the pain of near and dear ones more deeply just because it is her intrinsic nature. Though she has been crafted with a soft façade but her heart is even suppler in comparison to her soft structure. The charm she spreads around with her soft giggle can melt even the most rigid hearts. Her cheerful laughter and innocent gestures can lit up the solemnest environment and diffuse life in the gloomy situations.

But her beautiful heart always has two sides. If one is meant to bestow all love and care the other side is very tough and she knows very well when and how to hold her family and relations at the daunting times.

This truth that children are equivalent to God is so beautiful but while growing up and through all the years that I have crossed all I discovered that there is still stark discrimination in being a girl and being a boy. Even after ages while our society has moved ahead in their thinking and actions but the basic predicaments and hindrances faced by a girl has only improved marginally. Why still today she is answerable for every action? Why still today she has to justify her dreams and thoughts?

Why still she has to compromise? Why for every wrong and unethical incident happened in her life first finger is pointed towards her? Why do our society and the opposite gender forgets that apart from giving and giving she is also an individual who is so complete in herself and she has her own dreams, her own set of beliefs and her own likings and disliking as they have.

No matter what she does and how much she does there is always demand for more from them, while fulfilling those demands she always looses herself completely and when her family and its happiness becomes her priority and she never does this with any obligation. She always does this with utmost grace and delight. This is just a miniscule example of her humility and wisdom which is inherited in her by Almighty. She is actually ascended on this earth to hold this world because God cannot be himself present here for holding his complex universe.

My writings on this topic may never end because a girl is an ocean, no one can ever ascertain all the shades of her enigmatic personality as well as the intensity associated with that personality. I believe no one can ever unlock the pain, hidden strengths and mysteries inside her ever~ to know a woman you need to know and feel her “SOUL”.

History is evident that though the stronger, graceful and most adorable among the two genders she has yesterday, she is today, and she will tomorrow pass through the testing times and always be an exemplary to the generations till this world exists…

I still say- Is it task being a girl someday? Just try to exchange the role for a day….

All love and care in HIS heart crammed

The passion in HIS prosecution

To craft the wonderful creation

Made to bestow love with hilt

He forgot to invest the brains

In the reverse creation

Being a girl you are inclined to all risks

You need to tussle and juggle

To explore and create your way in

You cannot speak your heart right

Your actions are on the plunk

You need to justify till the end

You are finest in your deeds

They will try to pull you down

By using ways lean and mean

As your self-respect is your crown

They will bring into play the actions

So that they can show you down

They will try to engage you

In all the callous scuffle

You may lose the hope

You may lose it while you tussle

Fools thy forget the basics

You only possess the tender façade

These simple games of mind

Is the games you play everyday

They forget you are brave by heart

They forget you have tough brain

Still they always end up

To foster the acts of foolishness

To mess with the GIRL OF TODAY!!

Being a Girl~ I am Proud~ I am Blessed~ I will never exchange places…
