Winged skies


As I took the steps ahead on the swarming streets of Mumbai today, I felt like I was on top of a gigantic winged messenger of the gloomy skies that seemed to fly beneath me.


I could feel the burden of my thoughts being splashed across the busy streets, scattered and roaming without a moment of rest.


I felt my insides roar with a gore of pain whilst I kept trying to further increase my pace.


Was I dreaming…. As the question zoomed across my confused and battered mind today, I felt the speedy vehicles whiz past me with least care and concern. I stepped back few paces and the pain seemed to be agonizing even more.


What was happening?


I was feeling twitchy and was experiencing a moment of stagnation in my thoughts. Was the concerned concern with respect to my routine or my life, my dreams or my goals, my ideas or my passion? I could not separate the gold from the dross.   


I kept walking few steps ahead as I called in for a cab for my ride back home. I did not want to ponder… I did not want to question anymore? I just did not want to ask myself today… What is it that’s turning my insides out? I guess, by then my Nokia 3500 reminded me of the fabulous songs that it had in it’s memory. I took the music pills and gulped it through my ears one after the other and tried to make my pain go away.


I soon faded into the sound and beats and slowly into the gaping hole of the future. It looked just like a white light to me now. As I felt the agony slowly finding it’s way back, I pumped up the volume and let the music take control. I did not know what it is and today, I just didn’t want to know.


I had learnt to let go finally… Finally…… I had learnt what they mean to de–stress ….


Even though I knew that it was temporary… I felt at peace that it was over for the day…..


No more blasts, no more sounds… just serene emptiness of space….. hope and peace restored….

    hey ananth

    peace is restored indeed .. but the mind is anything but at peace even now .. i guess too many questions running in the mind and too much sadness for the lost lives and the families of these people are causing this erratic state of mind…we hav been spectators watching it on TV .. it is shivering to even think of the people who hav experienced it even thru their loved ones … It has ended now .. but the effects hav caused changes for some poeple tht will last forever .. no matter how the system is changed ..the losses cant b fulfilled again … the point is.. this incident has left a big mark on people’s lives… directly or indirectly …who knws if life here can ever b the same again …

    take care
