Written Affair : Her Beautiful Eyes

Her Beautiful Eyes is a poem about a blind girl... usually when we see a physically or mentally challenged person, we tend to be biased towards them. We think that those people are incapable of thinking, behaving or doing things the normal way... But God when takes away something from someone, he makes it a point to bless that person with other strengths. In this poem, I've tried to bring out the fact that even a physically challenged person is as much capable of doing normal things as we are... here the blind girl has same mysteries, same questions, similar dreams in her eyes... but we cease to notice them coz we are so full of our preconceived ideas...


No one saw her beautiful eyes...
No one saw
The depth in her eyes,
No one saw
Her curious eyes,
No one saw
The secrets hidden in her eyes,
No one saw
The questions rising in her eyes!


No one saw her beautiful eyes...
No one understood
The mysteries of the depth,
No one understood
Her curiosity towards life,
No one understood
How she hid her secrets,
No one understood
The questions in her eyes!


No one saw her beautiful eyes...
No one seemed to notice
The loneliness in her eyes,
No one seemed to notice
The pain in her eyes,
No one seemed to notice
The sad expression in her eyes,
No one seemed to notice
Her craving for the truth!


No one saw her beautiful eyes...
There was so much to be seen
In her beautiful eyes,
But those eyes could not see...
For she was blind!

No one ever noticed
Her beautiful eyes!

Prompt for the Day : Being A Woman in India in 2017 (a positive approach)

India has always had two kinds of people - Kahin Lakshmi ka Swaroop to Kahin ma-baap ka bojh (one are those who consider a girl child to be an avatar of Godess Lakshmi and other are those who consider a girl child to be a burden on the parents). India saw sati pratha and it sees female infanticide and but it has also given birth to women like Rani Lakshmibai, Kiran Bedi and Chanda Kochar. We have often heard the saying that behind every successful man is a woman who supports him. But today the dimensions are changing and in 2017, successful is a word that is associated not only with men, but women too - because today women are not content with just being in the sup…

Prompt for the Day : My Pregnancy



It's been a few months over two years since I had my son, and almost three years since I discovered that I was pregnant. It was a bittersweet journey.
Almost three years into our marriage, we started thinking about starting a family, I had my health issues to take care of, my college was about to end, I was running around for placements, clearing all levels before the HR round, facing rejection because I was a married woman.
Amidst all this, I had started my treatment for Thyroid and PCOD. And because of these issues, I knew conceiving might not be easy for me and some medical intervention might be required. My gynaec wanted to run some tests but they had to be done on certain days of my menstrual cyc…

Prompt for the Day : First Year With The Baby


A year with my son - seems like an eternity passed in that one year, but at the same time, it feels like, it got over way too soon...
Once I found out that I was pregnant, I dropped out of campus placements. My next decision was to take a break for three years and start once Shlok starts school - although my husband convinced me not to take that long a break but utilise the period to do another masters - but that's a story for another time. In the end, I spent one whole year, doing nothing but being with my baby.
I started logging his milestones right from the hospital itself - because I was recording his journey everyday from being on that ventilator to coming to me.


But once he was in my …
