Prayers Too Many...

ॐभूर्भुवः॒स्वः। तत्स॑वितुर्वरे॑ण्यं। भ॒र्गो॑दे॒वस्य॑धीमहि। धियो॒योनः॑प्रचो॒दया॑त्॥।
Gayatri Mantra was my first lesson in hymns. I recited it with closed eyes and folded hands every time my mother asked me to. At 4, all I knew was if you recite it with devotion, closed eyes and folded hands, all your prayers would be answered. Well, I kind of still believe in it. A pure heart and an honest prayer never go wrong.
My reasons for prayer are too many. From a tiny glitch I'm unable to solveto the happiness of my loved ones, I pray to Almighty for various reasons. Praying is my way of connecting with God. I feel even if my prayers won’t be answered, I will find peace of mind and positive energy to face all the difficulties. When I pray, I ask for God’s wishes so that I can complete my task.

Come, this November...

You lit that fire Inside me, of course I burn myself in it  Twice a day, if not more I comb my hair, I dress my eyes And press my toes on bare floor
Impure desires spark Passion in my body Wrapping my arms around I sway away I miss you, I love you I need you, just like yesterday
To fast-forward time I hum an old melody Sprinkling some hope On my weary heart I shuffle the memories Sequencing it to the very start 
Been awfully long Since we shared a cup of tea Been long enough For me to remember Come, My Love Come, this November...
