Forgotten Tales

Screenshot_20170715-002909_1

All the while eating the soul away
Destroying it from the inside
To the out; ripping it apart,
Filling you with dread and despair.
Secrets of heart grow
Heavier day by day
While we learn to walk about
With a tailored smile on our face.

Thoughts, plans, regrets,
Sometimes even wishes
Not all secrets can be shared.
Layers by layers these secrets pile and
Everything is locked up and stored behind.
We donne a mask we seldom want to reveal.
People, you say you have no secrets!
And I say I have tonnes…

Look deep into your darkest memories 
You’ll find a forgotten tale,
A murmured doubt, and a few
Forbidden stories, with unfinished ends…
There are secrets…
Secrets on the inside of me
Smothered in their prime, yet blazing with heat,
That I’ll endeavour never to reveal.

A Pilgrimage

16832063_1830147087234339_6025612506437213613_n
By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

A mark of cultural identity,
Illuminated Heritage buildings;
A place that confers spiritual wisdom
Freeing you from horrors of the deep
And terrors of the skies;
A perfect place for a man
To spend his days in silence
Enjoying harmless joys of solitude
With a guiltless heart, free
From all dishonest deeds
And thoughts of vanity.
 
Breeze carrying the aromatic scents
From the incense sticks
To cleanse the confined air; and
A soul freed from it’s bodily robes.
A place of quiet, breaking into occasional
Rhapsodies; towing a spiritual line,
*Aarti: marking the onset of dawn and dusk
Promoting meditation and the study of astronomy.
In this tech-savvy age the birthdays of the deity
are traditionally and lavishly celebrated.

Beyond hatred and tears
Is a twinkle of a lamp
Glimmering through the darkness
Like some ancient star.
The crown of glory scorning all the cares
That fate or fortune brings,
A pilgrim, arrested by the
Ambiance immersed in worship, now dutifully surrenders
To the sacred stone, his Divine Majesty;
Irrespective to the caste of the person who carved it
And melts under its power swaying humbly
All the time awestruck at the timelessness
Of the mysteries surrounding its ageless past.

*Aarti also spelled arti, arati, arathi, aarthi (In Devanagari: आरती ārtī) is a Hindu religious ritual of worship, a part of puja, in which light from wicks soaked in ghee (purified butter) or camphor is offered to one or more deities. Aartis also refer to the songs sung in praise of the deity, when lamps are being offered.

What is AUM?

A Kid: Prosetry

10326_P71_-_Children_playing_in_rain,_with_rainbow

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Me a kid to have enjoyed this.
There is a ‘kid’ in everyone.
But now all we have is
Forgotten dreams.
 
You play a son, a father, a husband
Shielding and protecting your family from the world
You conquered your fears and braved all odds
You are meant to fly higher
Higher than even what you dreamt.
Every step that you take now
Leaves a footprint for your kids to follow.
You chose to fulfil everyone’s dreams
And let go of yours.
 
I play a daughter, a mother, a wife.
Nurturing my family, creating a perfect world for them
I cope with all their fears between childhood and adulthood
From pulling things out from baby fingers
That grasp everything. Cleaning the crawling worms
In the vegetables and organising family dinners too,
Reading bedtime stories of fire breathing dragons
Till all those who were once awake now fall into deep slumber.
I chose to fulfil everyone’s dreams
And let go of mine.
 
Jumping on the shadows and in and out of puddles
Building castles in the sand
Playing hide and seek. Sitting on a swing
Swinging higher and higher as if to touch the sky
Enjoying on a seesaw and getting up suddenly
To topple the other. Those moments are now immortalised.
Childhood memories lingered forever
But the ‘kid’ in you and the ‘kid’ in me
Was slowly forgotten as the years grew old.
Like waves of seas, nostalgia often washes over me now
Rocking me back to the shores of reality with a jolt.
 
The world holds out pain and pleasure; both on a platter
To seek fun is our own prerogative now
I look in the mirror at times at times
Searching for those eyes that held a naughty sparkle
And were always filled with wonderment.
Our childhood may have been ephemeral
But reigns supreme in our memories even today
A familiar tune of yester years is all it takes
To push open the floodgates of our memories once again.
 
You a kid.
Me a kid to have enjoyed this.
There is a ‘kid’ in everyone.
But now all we have is
Forgotten dreams.

A Sick Society

134d44977408cb34e82eb602489ed5b8

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Ruthless, vile creepy men
Lie in wait for the
Young victims for they are
Gullible and soft targets
Easier to control.
Wrecking the children life’s
Stealing and robbing the kids
From their unassuming parents.
~o~
Helpless; caught up
In a sick society of human trafficking…  
Their innocence; stolen
Many are put to streets as beggars
The rest are sold privately
By these evil perpetrators
Pushed into flesh trade, or
Exploited and used for pornography.
~o~
Trapped in bondage in the concrete
Abominations masquerading as hotels,
Beaten and manhandled,
Maybe not even fed for days till
They succumb. All their human rights violated
Utter failures of security measures
No strength nor will to fight.
Enslavement; now a part of their life.

So Many Dreams I Dream: “Prosetry”

giphy

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

So many dreams I dream
Some whisper gently into my conscience,
While some go ahead crushing my spirits.
Sometimes echoes of past hurt so bad
That I cry out and scream languishing in my bed
My mind a battlefield of paranoia and
Nervousness trying desperately to unravel
The mystery behind it.
 
The other times’ future beckons
And I listen to music from faraway lands;
Either dancing in a chorus or singing a lonely verse
Praying for a deeper vision that prevents me
From unravelling what’s real and true.
Sometimes you walk with me holding my hand
In yours, and I give in to these boundless dreams
Enjoying the elongated hangovers
While the other times we drift away
Like shifting sands under the rushing waters
Of the sea and I keep sitting awake trying
To keep these disturbing dreams away.
 
Praying silently I try to read a deeper
Meaning of these enigmatic dreams
That strike just before the crack of dawn.
I sit for an exam and don’t know the syllabus,
I keep missing my train or my house
Is under a siege of big intimidating felines.
Someone is holding me down pinned
To the bed sitting on my chest while
I struggle and choke on my silent screams.
Some are haunted in their calling
Some enticing and surreal, while
Some leave me naked and stranded
On the crowded roads.
 
So many dreams I dream… and
I’m still trying to unravel these dreams that
Handle and twist my soul with the tip of their icy fingers.
