Chocolate? Or Love?

Often I have pondered over life’s profound mysteries,
Delving deep into present, future and long-forgotten histories,
The question that never fails to leave me in a quandary,
What is it that makes me different from all and sundry?
Now that I have an answer to it, let me confess plainly,
It is chocolates that I love the most, and most insanely.
Melting in the mouth, it gives me a taste of heaven for sure,
Bars, pastries, ice-creams and shakes, chocolates can so allure!
Love, they say, and I hear, is the most wonderful thing on earth,
Have those poor souls never tried chocolate ~ of much more worth?
No complaints, no demands ~ only chocolates give a pleasure so pure,
Yes, I might sound like a maniac, and this ailment has got no cure!
I’m a blissful choc-fanatic, and love, for me, is no match at all,
I simply fall in love with chocolates, every day, and have a ball!
For all moods and occasions, at any hour of the day,
They are sure to boost my spirits and shoo my woes away.
Ohh! How I love to have them unwrapped! The reasons to my smile,
My guilty indulgences they are-my love, lust and life forever, not just a while!

The Self-Help Book

He slicks his dark black hair back with his fingers. Outside, it was broad daylight, offering his dark brown eyes a view of the western part of the city. The neighboring tall buildings remind him he is on the 22nd floor of his workplace. He finishes off the remnants of his black coffee, already cold by now. The half-smoked cigarette burns out on the ashtray. He pulls the ropes of his French window and his cabin is no longer reminded of the world outside.
 He turns his swivel chair with the support of his desk to face a laptop in front of him that wastes no time in taking him to another world altogether. The white striped shirt he is wearing with his dark grey tie match the colors on the back of his laptop that flaunt the initials “S. R.”.

The Boy in the Train

"You'll always be late for the previous train, and always on time for the next.” 
― Piet Hein

I rejoice whenever I get a window seat on Indian trains whenever it’s a chair car (otherwise Upper Berth would be my spot), more so when it is the last seat near the door, usually marked 4. There’s always more legroom for those who get the last seat. The TTE (Train Ticket Examiner) sits in the same seat on the other column, marked 1, which feels quite safe for a single woman traveller. When I need to leave my seat for a short break, it’s the TT (in short for TTE) who would watch over my luggage. When I need to ask how delayed the train was, it was again the TT, my neighbour for the journey.
However, sitting near the TT comes with other experiences too apart from the sense of security. There would be travellers without a ticket, looking for a vacant seat, who would sit on the TT’s seat itself pretending it’s theirs and later being laughed at, when busted. There would be people coming t…

Atrocity in a Smart-City - Bhubaneswar

I haven’t had a decent cup of tea in a long time – the kind that refreshes you within seconds. Bhubaneswar has no dearth of tea stalls that do not shy in putting enough milk in the cup. However, the hot weather doesn’t allow one to drink as many cups of tea as one would have while living in Guwahati.
After the third cup of the day, I feel nauseas. And when tea isn’t there to sweep you off your worries, everything else starts bothering you.
When I first landed in the city last year in September I was impressed by how the cabs arrive just minutes after you’ve booked one, how the roads are free of potholes in the major parts of the city, how the highway helps me travel anywhere in twenty minutes even when I live a little outside of the main city.
Perceptions do not take long to change and I am now often reminded of the quote in Sanskrit that says दूरस्थाःपर्वताःरम्याः – the hills look lovely but only from a distance.For when you see t…
