think it aloud

You dated him just because you liked the way he flirted with you. The expensive gifts, the long drives and the different life! But how long!!! You did not think about it. Love is not an object that you will replace it. Flirting and loving are two opposite poles. When you got bored you blamed him that he used you but My Dear he did what you let him do. One should know how to draw a line. Mere blaming is not the solution.

Freedom from judging others

You know where does the problem lie? It lies in the struggle to prove the superiority.  If we can not be equal, we should not indulge in blame gaming all the time. Asserting the superiority of Patriarchy or matriarchy cannot be the solutions. I have seen many men practising the emotional and humane aspects of life and I have seen many women with regressive claims about life and sexuality. Being vocal and having a space to form a dialogue are the needs of the hour. I have seen many young females voicing their urge for their individuality. How pathetic we become when we feed them illusion and false show! How complete this world is when we have all human beings expressing them to the core without any futile categories or judgements! I am what I am. You are what you are. Why can't we accept this fact if it does not interrupt our living? But we teach falsity that it is important to be "I should be according to what pleases others" and "You should be according to what pl…

One of my brightest and sensitive students: Darshan Singh

At the age of twenty, only some youngsters have such a clarity of thought and sensitive understanding of life. Darshan is one of them. Many many wishes to him who will be a great poet one day! sharing one of his poems:

एक एक है क्षण कीमती जिंदगी का
बता आखिर में, बुझता कौन नहीं
जब कूद पड़ा है तो पूरा दम लगा
जंग है ये, यहाँ झुझता कौन नही

वक़्त है ये जब तू एक हीरा सा सिमट जा
घिसते कोयले के अल्फाज सुनता यहाँ कोई नही
हाथ तीर कमान लिए कूदे तो सब हैं यहां
बिना अर्जुन हुए तीरंदाज जीतता कोई नही


तपा खुद को दिन रात, निकल आ स्वर्ण सा
जब तक पहचान न हो पूछता यहाँ कोई नही
कर खुद को बुलंद इतना, तू चले तो तूफ़ान उठे
जब तक तू तूफान न उठे पूछता यहाँ.......

A brilliant poem by my first year student

Sahil, another student of English Hons (first year) wrote a brilliant poem in his first attempt. Teaching John Donne and such a poem at the end tells the metaphysical poetry touched the cords:

Why? Why you abhorred me like that
And realm of my heart whacked with your cacophony.
Does a pall of gloom descends upon your feelings,
Leaving our love in an ordeal and debarring us from
That Heavenly Abode of love.
Is it my bashful and naive heart that can not
Emanates its feelings to the mouth?
Nobody can understand my flawless love's ideation
which amalgamate my selfless-ness and devotion for you,
That rejuvenate my soul.
A few moments or the whole,
All I want to live and die with you.

Who teaches?

Who teaches children to grow as
rapists
murderers
Cynic liars
Not family ?
Not society?
Not any system?
But dont kids become constructs
of indifference
after they turn 7 or 8
With the indirect training
The insult and fights in the houses
With the abusive language
they gradually receive the signals in minds
Of the disrespect for others
Of the casual attitude that is deemed funky
By the time they become teens
Watching a porn or passing a vulgar comment is a common scene
they are bound to encounter
Perhaps parents are busy in earning and creating a comfortable life for their children
The time when the teenagers are on the surge
Nobody bothers to talk to them
And then they dont bother
They dont give a damn
With the lovers or the beloveds
See the changing scenario
For some
Alcohol is now a new sign of being modern
Getting physical at a small acquaintance
is now an argument for liberty
People are shouting for justice
But who are nourishing rapists or murderers ?
Who teaches a small child of 9
