Birthdays Make Me Cry

April 19, 2011

My birthday doesn’t arrive, it looms, As a dreadful eventuality might, So I wait with trepidation, Fearing the impending doom. Birthdays make me introspect, Everything seems wrong in retrospect, Everyone else appears successful and happy, And I am left to nurse my dampened mood. A birthday is just another day, But on that day I […]

A Living Example of Horrifying History

March 18, 2010

I saw 4-year old Aditya dangling from his mother’s arms. I wondered why she would ‘handle’ a child that way. And I soon found out why. I edged closer to see that the boy was unkempt. Dirty clothes, saliva drooping, eyes crisscrossed…the works. He was mumbling to himself and walking, rather stumbling at every step. […]

My Experiences With HIV – I

This blog post takes me back a few years. Interestingly, it is as fresh in my mind as if it had happened yesterday. If I were to pass the man (the one whom this post talks about) on the street, I’d probably recognize him. The idea is not to praise my memory, rather to emphasize the impact […]

My Caregiver’s Song

I watched her wither, I wished she died, And then I burned in shame, I tried to hide. I spoke to none, I knew I’d be shunned, In my own private hell, I began to reside. She knew me not, yet I wanted her to know, I was her little one, the one she bore. […]

A Requiem

Will I be missed when I die? How many times have we thought about this? Some of us like to fantasize about the void that we will leave behind when we pass on to the next world. Some of us, very conveniently avoid even thinking about it, some others among us just don’t have the […]
