Photo Gallery of my Nuwakot Trip

Day 1


[Green fields seen from highway]


[View from a Chautari]



[A Water Tap constructed in memory of my friend Sudhan]



[Kids busy making something out of a 'Bhogate', i asked are you making a goat or what? They laughed and said 'Yes']


Day 2



[Early in the morning, i took a one hour walk to the Northern part of the village. Its a more remote area.]


[My trip to Bhorle, Dhading.]

[Early morning view from the village]


[On my way... i am in the either side of the hill, i will be crossing that small river and move up from there towards the right. That steep up walk was hard. I still remember that.]


[My focus is on the rainbow and that brightly lit hill in the left. It was cloudy and raining all day, however we didnt get caught in the rain ]

Day 3
Back to home

[There's nothing special in this photo, but i just like the fog, specially when i can see and feel it move, I like it very much.]



[The image speaks itself]



[You see that road there...., thats the highway, where we have to reach to catch the bus. It was a long way, - - i stood there few seconds watching the road: i was a bit tired.]



[We met some kids when we reached the market. They were returning from school and bathing and fishing in the nearby spring. One kid showed me a small crab which he caught and put in a small bottle.]

And after few mins, we got to the main road. Waited for few mins there before we got a bus to Kathmandu. Had to stand up ... there were demonstrations in Kathmandu and the highways against the petro price hike, so few buses were on the run. Later govt withdrew the price hike decision. I had to walk for half an hour to cross the traffic jam of buses and to get to Kalanki.

Finally got a microbus to my home, as a special service for running the vehicles within the battlefield-like roads, no student concession was provided.

Concludingly,
It was great trip. I look forward for another one.

where am i once again

once again,
i feel like lost
there within my rhyme
un-composed : un-sung

the rythm i am looking for
i feel it sometimes
within me
audible sometimes, and only sometimes

the revelation
my own saga, my own words,
entangled
i am lost somewhere within them!

4th dimension

hey hey
i am here,
dont you see!
dont you see at all?

the time,
stands still - around the room
i have no room for myself
the 4th dimension - is static

feels the same,
the mind waves go on
thus - i feel like somnliloquising
all the time.

म संसार जित्ने आंट गर्दैछु

म संसार जित्ने आंट गर्दैछु
मात्र तिमी मेरो साथ बसिदेउ
भविष्यले अंगाल्ने गीत म गाउदैछु
मात्र तिमी सुरमा ताल मिलाईदेउ
यहि हो अर्थ रच्नुको
ईतिहासमा अमर रहोस

तिम्रो र मेरो कहानी - सधैं सधैं

जब हिड्दा हिड्दै थाक्छु म कहिलेकाही
त्यतिबेला मेरो आड बनि देऊ
जिन्दगिको मोडमा सोच्न सकिन भने
तिम्रो मिठो बिचार मलाई देउ
यहि हो अर्थ भन्नुको
सपना ठुलो छैन
बिलौना गर्न नपरोस् - जिन्दगिमा

सुनौलो हाम्रो भविष्य साकार हुन्छ
मलाइ भरोसा छ
म हरपल तिम्रो रक्षा गर्नेछु
मात्र तिंमी आत्मबल बनिदेउ

भविष्यले गाउने गीत म रच्दैछु
मात्र तिमी सुरमा ताल मिलाईदेउ
यहि हो अर्थ रच्नुको
ईतिहासमा अमर रहोस
तिम्रो र मेरो कहानी - सधैं सधैं

jaya bhole

ॐ शिव ॐ

special worship season for Shivaji for one whole month of Shrawan concluded today. This month is believed to be special and thus it is celebrated with special attention for the entire month.

I also visited Pashupatinath early in the morning, stood in the queue for 2 -3 hrs. Just couldnt satisfy myself without the darshan [however most of the times i just enter the main premise and take few turns and worship for Shivaji in other smaller temples. ]
It was a short cut like the bol bam yatra for me. Early morning, walk to the temple, .... .... etc.Felt good.

The line management was really good and controlled this time, but it was quite absurd to circle the temple through right [Actually its odd]. Stood there and worked as volunteer for few hours.


Feeling tired now. May be i'll walk out for home and take some rest.

Besides, i have to prepare for tomorrow's assessment on Stylistics in Linguistics - i dont know much about it, but i hope i will study for better view. [well... did i mention somewhere that i have joined Masters in English literature recently?] It was quite late, but finally I got a chance from the back door. :)

"Better late than never"

friendship day

... and i m here just to express my wishes on this day
to express my gratitude to all : ALL : remembered : almost forgotten : forgotten : seen: unseen and remaining all : friends, who have helped me to create smiles... and made this globe a better place, who knowingly - unknowingly cherished my small world ...

I express my gratitude to those whom i remember all the times and also to those whom i dont remember at all, whom i have mis-understood, with whom i have been misunderstood; whom i have hurt [with all my apologies], ... and who have hurt me [my pleasure :) ]

specially i would like to express my love to SUDHAN : a true friend of mine, whom i miss too much, just more than too much.

... best wishes on this so called Friendship Day.

in your room...

In your room
Where time stands still
Or moves at your will
Will you let the morning come soon
Or will you leave me lying here
In your favourite darkness
Your favourite half-light
Your favourite consciousness
Your favourite slave

In your room
Where souls disappear
Only you exist here
Will you lead me to your armchair
Or leave me lying here
Your favourite innocence
Your favourite prize
Your favourite smile
Your favourite slave

I'm hanging on your words
living on your breath
feeling with your skin
Will I always be here

In your room
Your burning eyes
Cause flames to arise
Will you let the fire die down soon
Or will I always be here
Your favourite passion
Your favourite game
Your favourite mirror
Your favourite slave

I'm hanging on your words
living on your breath
feeling with your skin
Will I always be here

me and you



“I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry.

And I know you do the same things too,

So we're really not that different,

me and you.”

what is war?

... and today i found a good quote by Paul Valery:

War: a massacre of people who don't know each other for the profit of people who know each other but don't massacre each other”.
[I think nothing should be explained here.]
