The cold chases meStalks like an obsessive loverCatching me off-guardWhile I try to relaxIn the holiday season It shrouds mewhen I’m least awareBites my bonesChilling my insides & outsidesMaking my skin crawlSending the shivers down my spineTill I weaponise myself with blanketsAnd a hot tea. Picture taken in 2018, please travel responsibly and safely.
The ever flowing streams teach us that life goes on.
Unless you can decipher the languageEven lofty alphabets are difficult to understand.
When a walking sunshine blocks the fading rays of the evening sun.
Travel nostalgia – Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India
The Buddhist temple precinct at Dehradun is spread over a vast area and houses a huge golden statue of Lord Buddha.This photograph could have been a masterpiece but damn those canines!
How fearlessly I’m standing near this statue of vibrant and vividly coloured lion! Now imagine if someone were to “transfigure” this statue into a live one!I just cannot get out of Potter world you see.
Fantasy fiction – Potter mania
I wish we could all conjure a Patronus charm to counter severe anxiety and mental exhaustion that we are going through.Or we could Avada Kedavra all the covid variants!

Travel haiku – Dehradun, Uttarakhand, India
Laughing hystericallyOn my lame punsWhile teasing meAbout my eccentricitiesYou made me smile Quietly watching youPlaying with the parrotsSwirling your stoleAround the bougainvilleasMy heart smiled. Caption taken from my poem “Your Smile -II”
