(The meaning of the word Numinous is describing an experience that makes you fearful yet fascinated, awed, yet attracted- the powerful ,personal feeling of being overwhelmed & inspired.)

Amazement seemed to
Conceal my heart , mind & soul
I was lucky to be here
After such endeavor and sacrifice.

I never in my life thought
That you will be standing
In front of me ….

You were larger than life
I must say!!

You were really huge
Completely Drenched in snow
Amidst those lucid stars
That was lingering besides you
Like jewels.

You were so real
So very near, yet so far
And somewhere the moon
Was envying your romance.

Semblance happens in real life too
Things appear to be beautiful
When they are far
But, as it comes near
Its beauty fades away.

But whatever the philosophy
Of life happens to be
It always takes hardships
To view such a
Adoring sight…..
That is now in front of me.

I guess now
I have known the secret
Of the poets
Who get inspired &
Write pearls of words.

Because the nature itself is an inspiration.
That inspires, conspires them to think,
Imagine, apprehend & finally
Pour their thoughts into verses.


I wish I could capture this 
Sight on my camera,
But I don't feel like
Better will be,
I capture it in my eyes &
In my memories
So that It will remain
With me forever& ever
Even if I’m dead.

At least I can tell somebody
Or else just to myself &
relish because
In these mountains itself
I have found a kind of love
Which I don’t want to be fulfilled,
Nor want it to blossom.

But keep it in my heart
Like the veins that makes it beat
Because when my heart will die,
He will die with it too.

But the feeling that I feel
With or without him
In this snowscapped mountains
In the witness of the Moon &
the Stars will remain forever.

And I want it to be unrequited,
Because he will always remain
The Man of the Mountains &
I will always remain
The Girl from the Plains.

Marriage ! Are you Crazy!!!!

They are planning to get me married by 2015
Are you crazy I asked them?
They said “no we are not “
We think, that mean I think you are crazy
Girls at your age are getting married and look at you
Silly girl !!
You are 28 already

I said “Come on Mom,
Life begins at 40”
Between I’m confused a lot
Right now
Regarding this...
Besides I got lots of dreams
To fulfil..............

Don’t worry
All the confusion will
Be over after you get married
You will be “adjusting by then”

“You will be” she said
Get married fulfil your dreams
With your husband.
Go wherever you want
With him.........


Finally she uttered those words
Those Gruesome words

I replied .........................
I just can’t get married like this
Besides I’m afraid,
I’m not ready yet!
I don’t think I will be ever ready for it.

You can’t Force me
Dad says he doesn’t
Want to get me married!
He wants to keep me
With him


I think that s a good idea!
Mom (irritated & angry)
“No you gotta get married !”
My bro says
“You? Getting married?
Sister, I can’t think of you
Getting married?”

Well finally right now
I have settled
Being as I’m

I got Parents who are
Not pressuring me
To get me married
But Mom sometimes
Transforms into
“Typical Indian Mom” type

Can’t blame anyone...
Lets see
As according to me
A marriage is not required
to complete a Woman ..
but my Mom says the other
way round .....

Lets see...
