Excursion to Agra

23 October ..  The excitement  couldn't be hidden when my friend ask me to accompanied him to agra.  I wanted to visit agra once anytime  convenient.' But the the excursion came earlier then I expected.  Agra is famous for it architectural marvel' the Taj mahal enlisted seven  wonders on the globe. I envisioned taking exquisite photo  with glistening castle as the background. But my stomach felt butterflies when I learnt that many girls  were actually accompanying us as well. I hardly remember any time .travelling with such a huge number of damsels.and traveling with girls always made me paranoid.
Train appeared on the platform at 11 pm and halted for next 30 minutes providing ample of time for the passenger to board. The station has become stony silent, Contrary to other days when it's damn busy as the bee,  it looks deserted.  Train was vacant and berths have collected an inch thick of dust.
The train was devoid of any mobile vendors as well, with no one coming to sell water, my lips parched. And throats went desert dry. At length when my friends snored  I lay awake staring at the balck moonless night outside. It was quite cold and I embraced my legs occupying the most corner of the berth.
taj mahal has all the beauties it has been always been praised with. The stunning sculpture and the architecture was impressive . Beside it is not a bad place for  any couple to come for honey moon or else rendezvous.
The clicking of photo was the most memorable part of the trip.  Even I didn't compromise and snapped abundant pictures, posing, group photo and selfie like wise.

sleep less night.

Lights are put out and the room hung in darkness.
Outside is silent except for some  distant barking of dogs somewhere
The far hissing of the train is nostalgic
I know they are heading home .
My head pulls heavy yet I lay it on pillow
Contemplating the blades of fan
Hundred of thoughts conjure my mind.
My mind is devoid of legs but they walk faster
Likewise it's devoid of wings. Yet they fly higher.
Winter has brought with her the cold
Deeper I am obliged to burry in the quilt.
Tossing to the right and then to the left
In hope of holding the tail of slumber.
I miss you but more when  sunk in solitude
I miss your arms and the warmth of your embrace.
I open my ears, maybe I can hear your voice
I hold my breath so I can smell your fragrance.
Like a desert craving for a rain drop
I ought for your love abound.
I force my eyes into sleep
But in vain and I despair and
The fresh dawn unfolds rather.

From the news paper,

My keen enthusiasm in reading news pulls my attention to all kinds of journal,   websites and  various  blogs. I salute smart phones for providing  amazing applications which enable us  to keep updated about the latest news. For obvious reasons I feel that smart phones have now become  indispensable part of our daily life too.
Well the point is more I read the more I gets  disturbed . With many crimes reported every day , the prognostic of such incidents happening with me as a victim becomes inevitable. For instance rape , murder and many other heinous crimes always installs a goose bumps within me. I am obliged to wonder where the human values, respect   love and the compassions has have vanished?  And in fact its even more difficult to comprehend the root cause of these inhuman activities. We know that animals kill each other to avoid starving , in contrast people kill each other for just simple reason as hatred.  Its apparent from what’s happening daily in many of the middle east countries where people are massacred ruthlessly.  It pangs my heart to see innocent people dying , the children are taught to kill, women are ravished , freedom are snatched , there are only guns and the bullets to compromise anything.
Abhorrent religious believers, abhorrence of racism ,and the lack of morals is going rampant all over the world. The ripple of its evil instinct is being felt in all the parts of india as well. Delhi alone has seen uncountable numbers of crimes  as of now and  more upcoming  are being conspicuous. What  makes me more anxious  and apprehensive is the racism . Regardless of any political issues , its totally unacceptable to let a person judge, criticize , insult and even murder based on our looks and difference in religion. For instance many incidents where people form northeast india  are being racially exploited and looked down with indifference.  These makes my stomach sick , because they resemble our looks and when somebody as same as us are targeted our entity is also being shaken impeccably.  Now it has made me paranoid even to walk alone, because I fear that anytime , anybody  might  grab my collar and pull me down. As long as the racism ceases in India , those inward premonition aint just trick of my chicken heart but something  liable to occur for sure.
What people fail to realize is that though various religion may have different entities , but the basic principles and the morals are the same. Ignorance of these paves the way for radical religious beliefs  meanwhile escalating the threats of terrorism and violence everywhere. Everyone loves to live in peace and drink the wine of harmony. Even the terrorist themselves rather prefer to avoid being killed  , well the irony is they also love peace and want to cherish the bliss in the  environment. But unless the people are willing to put down their guns and change their conscience , the longing for happiness would be like crying for the moon. i am no capable of performing as an activist yet I genuinely feel that my concern and words will one day bring a change by and by.
