Colours of the Darkness

Darkness is a muted emotion,
Felt by a few, living with it in peace.

Darkness is a colourful painting,
Visualized by a few, craving for vision.

Darkness is a tempting beauty,
For a few, admiring the smiling moon.

Darkness is a black wall,
Leaning behind it by a few, hiding pains.

Darkness is a haunting silent message,
Heard by a few, seeking answers in vain.

Darkness is a ray of hope,
Portrayed by a few, touching hearts of people silently.

Darkness is a supporting companion,
For a few, living in loneliness.

Darkness is an unending misery,
For a few, living with guilt and agony inside the prison.

Darkness is a preying time,
For a few, hunting down their prey mercilessly.

Darkness is a mating time,
For a few, dying to see each other after the tiring mechanical life.

Darkness is a symbol of heroism,
For a few, playing a silent protector – the dark knight.

Following and Capturing My Twin – Shadow


Following and Capturing My Twin – Shadow  – Photo Credits: Anoop © People and Hearts

    Slowing down my foot steps,
    Positioning myself against a metallic rod,
    I was following him, my twin – shadow,
    I was watching him closely like never before,
    I was going to capture him with my camera,
    While he was blindly imitating me.

    He, my twin – shadow, stood there in front of me,
    Lights falling on me during the night made him darker,
    I smiled so that I could make him smile for the photo,
    Only then I knew, he, my twin – shadow, could never smile,
    While he was blindly imitating me.

    I captured his unassuming posture,
    Into the photo album of time,
    He, my twin – shadow, wasn’t smiling,
    Although, I stood there smiling at my twin – shadow,
    While he was blindly imitating me.

You don’t need a mirror to reflect. Reflections are here, there, everywhere and forever. Reflections are omnipresent!

Reflections have their own colors and layers that define different moods. Reflections are complex!

People reflect happiness with their smile. Couples reflect love with their eyes.  Reflections are captivating!

Your words reflect what your mind thinks. Your thoughts are the powerful reflections of what you feel about yourself, others and life. Reflections are self-driven!

Memories are the reflections of your past that you treasure and detest.  Reflections are infectious!

Reflections emerge even from a pool of water.

What you see or believe  is not always true. So watch closely. Reflections are deceptive!

Pink Floyd Songs for a Rainbow Life


raindowwwww

Pink Floyd has become a part of my daily life. My day definitely begins with a Pink Floyd song and so I rise. My night ends with a Pink Floyd song.

Whatever the situation, whatever the type of emotions, whatever the mindset, there is always a Pink Floyd song to the rescue. These days, I breathe Pink Floyd. I have started to look life through a Pink Floyd song, just like its prism and light.

The combination of a Pink Floyd song, night and a mild breeze is heaven. There is no better feeling than that. A rainbow and a Pink Floyd song are so similar in every aspect. There is love, hate, lust, misery, aggression, passion, bitterness, revenge, sadness, thrill, mystery and anything on earth in Pink Floyd songs.

If I could say that Pink Floyd is my love, I wouldn’t deny it.

Pink Floyd songs are for a Rainbow Life.

A.R. Rahman’s Thiruda Thiruda – 20 Years Down the Lane


Twenty years ago, in the month of October, India witnessed a revolution in Indian Music through the launch of A.R Rahman’s album Thiruda Thiruda.

As a six-year old in 1993, I was stunned to hear a song – Konjam Nilavu, played on the Radio. I’ve never heard such a kind of song in the Indian music sphere. The song was very unique. From the techno beats, high-pitch singing, singer, everything was new for me at least. A R Rahman had cast a magic spell with this song.

 A R Rahman changed the way people viewed Indian Music with Thiruda Thiruda. The album has a cult fan following ever since its release. The album included six songs of different genre and each one was a classic. This was the beginning that Indian Music was waiting for. Splendid music combined with innovation was the hallmark of this album. I became a hardcore fan of A R Rahman after hearing Thiruda Thiruda’s music.

Here is a review of the music album – Music Review of Thiruda Thiruda.

Gazing at the Beauty of Moonlight from the Graveyard


Gazing the Beauty of Moonlight from the Graveyard
Gazing at the Beauty of Moonlight from the Graveyard

Walking into the nearest graveyard,

With a childish curiosity in mind,

Looking at the silent graves,

With an irresistible gutsy attitude.

Dusting off the dead leaves from a lonely grave,

With a freedom bestowed by choice,

Sitting on the grave cautiously,

With a deep breath to the corners of lungs.

Placing the legs on the dark grasses,

With one hand on the freaky heart,

Waving hands at the flying bats and broken skulls,

With a childish mischievousness.

Smiling at the shadows of creepy trees and graves,

With a pat to the adventurous heart,

Gazing at the beauty of moonlight from the graveyard,

With a thrill of madness driven by fun.
