Sons and Lovers – Book Review

Sons and Lovers, the novel, holds a very important place in my life. I have read it as a student and then studied it as a grown-up man having literary occupations. Both the times, I had that mesmerising effect which is conventional as far as the novels of this quality are concerned. D. H. Lawrence becomes as detailed as Thomas Hardy and as philosophical as Aldous Huxley; it purely depends [...]

Nothing will be the same again – poem

  The street lamp emits white and cold light tonight, as usual. It's 2 AM. Dogs bark and tear the breast of silent street, like every other night. I explore the corridor occasionally. Either happiness or sadness embraces my heart when I look down from the second floor. Tonight, the white light is dark to me. Noises are silent and the wind is still. No moon shines. No stars glitter. [...]

प्रेम बस पाना ही तो नहीं! कविता

  अब कौन कहाँ है? किसे देखूं? प्रश्न किससे करूँ? जख्म हरा है भर जाये शायद, आज कल, महीनों या वर्षों में। पर कौन होगा अब सम्हालने मेरी बिखरती उम्मीदों को? कौन समझेगा मेरे सपनों को? याद है मुझे (तुम्हें भी तो याद होगा ही) कैसे अश्रुधार में, डबडबाती आँखों से देखा था हमने एक-दूसरे को जब हाथ छुड़ाए हमने परिस्थितियों से हारके। सहज सरल सरस बस समझ गए हम [...]

The Cold Night – Weird Short Stories 3

  "Are you sure, Alok?" And the tremble in her voice was visible to my ears. I looked at her coldly for a few seconds and nodded - yes. She was afraid but her fear could not hide the frenzy of happiness that she wore over her rob after my 'yes'. I did not have anything to hide. We walked slowly back home. All along, our steps crushed the ice [...]

Atal Ji – एक समर्पित कविता

अनवरत, सतत, निरंतर बिना रुके, बिना थमे, रखे बिना भेद-अंतर चलता रहेगा एक विचार जो जगाया है उसने अपने जीवन की आहुति देकर। राज-काज, राज-धर्म और धर्म सिखाया जिसने अपने वाणी की सर्वोच्च शीर्ष पर खुद भी बन गया वो आज एक राह वो पथिक जो चला था अकेले कभी, आज काफिले पे उसके दुनिया आयी है श्रद्धा-सुमन लेके!   हाँ कभी कभार दुःख अनायास हो जाता था किसी राजनेता [...]

Familiar Stranger – Love & Mystery – Poem

Why should I stop this ever-unsung tune of warmth of this strange coldness that brings our love closer when I hold you just beneath my breath and your lips give salvation to mine and properly, carefully enshrine the bodies which pleasantly cage our happy souls and after all this, I think never to pull the curtain because we need to be free and to be free we need this mystery [...]
