La Nuit De L'homme


Come waltz with me

I'll float in your arms

and my scent will seduce you

till your senses swim.

It's a night of seduction.

Give in to my charm

reveal your sensuality.

Undo your mystery as I overpower you with my magic.

It's the night of the man.

Surrender to me as night falls.

It's a night of seduction.

It's a night for you and me.


The Gloaming Hour


Twilight on wintry nights,

a brief appearance.

A sudden luminosity enveloping the earth,

a delicate beauty settles in,

a blue aura..


gently stokes an ardour.


The fragrance hangs heavy,

the flowers catch the fading light

and come into their own,

glowing from within.


The universe pauses.

Daylight has sweated itself out.

Night yet to seduce

with her mystery and enchantment.


The interlude...

when emotions peak

and passions are aroused.

Suddenly everything appears in a new light.

A wondrous charm is cast.

The breeze touches our faces with cool fingers,

and a gush of hope suffuses.


I light the lamp in my heart.

It'll be chilly soon,

darkness will beckon.

A tiny glow to cast some warmth

and show me the way

when the path is blind.


It's time to slow down

and take stock.

Time to feel the love,

the whispers of the heart.

Play out the passion,

soak in the beauty that abounds.

Stop! It's that intervening moment

when activity should cease.


The blue heavens beguile,

conch shells blow in the distance,

heralding an evening of peace.

Silence is setting in

and the crickets will be heard soon.

Hear the heart.

It too wants to speak.


There's a bench waiting.

I take a seat.


Meluha, My Bharatvarsha


Once upon a time

in an ancient land

where the holy river ran...

for thousands of years lived the simple folk.

With faith and fraternity

they built cities and towns

filled with people

from across the land.

They merged with each other

myriad their tongues,

customs and cuisines.

Myriad their crafts and skills.

But hearts and minds

singing a single tune.

A billion plus people

of all castes, creeds and tribes

living in unison

a democratic life.

The Indian ethos

unity in diversity

a sacred pledge to society.
