"She posed for her camera, relinquishingh smile, Yet her eyes expressed subtly, a tale she didn't wish to reveal, What was she trying to hold back? Was it an untold story she wished stays undisclosed, Or was it all just an imagination of the poet in me, Musing about the intense eyes that I couldn't ignore." - Peace and Love ~ VJ

"Conversations, Words stringed together, With more than a dash of emotion. It all began with element of curiosity, To unravel the unknown in each other. Word for word were matched, Unboxing the closet thoughts, Like a flowing river, they exchanged thoughts unabashed. Yet each held back some part of themselves, It wasn't the end, but a beginning, A beginning of a shadowed tale of mystic longing." ~ Peace and Love - VJ

Eyes That Inspired

"She stood there staring into the oblivion, Lost in thoughts, maybe a million of those. I could never decipher her thoughts, All hidden in smiles and twinkling stares. If only I could see beyond empty stares, Maybe there were thoughts unexpressed and words unsaid." - VJ says ~ cheers and peace 

Sweet Song of The Soul

The distance between us questions possibilities, Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached, Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet, Yet hope says they would someday be entwined. UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged, Unassuming how the world would read them, Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail, It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought. Feelings expressed in words for many are view points, Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few. Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart, These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art. Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts, Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest. Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others, Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest. -VJ says ~ cheers and peace 

Let's accept, It's important to fail!!!

The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence. A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head. We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life. We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity. "There are no easy ways, no escapes, 

Take a leap of faith

Life always has few surprise cards stashed away from the deck of cards you are dealt with. It's not everyday that you chance upon meeting people who leave you with these little nuggets of powerful message. Just the other day I was at this party on the shores of Kovalam Beach. Needless to say that after a long day of chatter and conversations largely related to work, the soul seeks a way to unwind. In midst of the busy gathering a conversation that I had gave me enough fodder to share few interesting thoughts in this blog post of mine. This conversation was with a man in his early fifties, I am assuming that his age should be there about. The conversation generally kicked off with the rhetorical question, "so what do you do?" "Travel photography", pat came the reply. Being an amateur photography enthusiasts I couldn't resist not engaging in the conversation. The next few minutes we talked at length about the places he has traveled to and some of

A soulful singer and a surreal evening

It was one of those evenings I wished to wrap it all up as soon as I could and hit my sack. Well quiet understandably the escape route wasn’t going to be an easy one. Considering the fact that it was the sun down event of a half a week long brand summit I was participating in. A few awkward moments and a good strong drink later the urge to escape was subsiding. Yet I was a tad unsure the mild intoxication could hold me in that place for long. The sound of the sea waves hitting the rocks by the beach of Kovalam and the breeze of wind blowing across was helping me calm down and sink in to the surrounding. Just then an unknown, unheard artist came on the stage. It was a band comprising of a vocalist and a music mixer AKA DJ. It was only a matter of time before the soulful voice of the vocalist signing some of the best indie classics, sufi songs and ghazals filled the open air gathering. I could feel the music slowly growing on me. Well it wasn’t me alone, a careful look
