Rewind - November 2020

2020 is almost over and what a year it has been! It has taught me to be kind, compassionate and keep it slow. As Bhawana, my friend and sister-in-law says, 'Life is not a race. It's a marathon.' So we all need to keep our energies and sanity alive to make it that far. I am not writing a lot these days. Certainly sharing far less. But I am enjoying it. There is no point doing something for the heck of it! Do it when you enjoy it. I wrote the following in November.




My words are scotch - bitter with an aftertaste of honey.


काली स्याही सी रातें सर्द बर्फ़ीले से दिन

बस कुछ ऐसी है ज़िंदगी तेरे बिन 


शिकायतें आज भी तुमसे उतनी ही  हैं

बस बोलने का हक़ खो बैठें है 

शिकायतें अपनों से होती है

ग़ैरों से क्या मलाल करें

जिनसे दिल नहीं मिलते

उनसे क्या सवाल करें


Fuck being a princess - let’s rule the world like a warrior.


रोज़ काटते है लोग दिन यहाँ

ज़िन्दगी तो बस कोई कोई जीता है


हम इश्क़ करें और चर्चे ना हो 

ऐसा गुनगुना इश्क़ हम नहीं करते


ऐ गम तू इतना सस्ता क्यूँ है

जिन्हें कुछ नहीं मिलता, उन्हें तू खूब मिलता है

How about you - how was 2020 for you?
