...And the Birds Flew Away....



Finally my thesis is over….
..another milestone of time conquered…making it 7 years in delhi.
….seven years …..
…I still remember the first day I walked out of Hazrat Nizammudin Railway station to find a sea of humans rushing out of the platforms…..
…never thought that I would stick on to this city for so long.....
Yet I did.

Life's been a maze all these years…
….so many souls walked in and out of my life…
….many left without a whimper…
…some left a few footsteps
…and a few left a heartful of memories.

And yet again the monsoons are on its way…
to drench everything that comes its way….
and yet again the birds have flown away….
….leaving behind a handful of colourful plumes….
plumes of moments well spent together….
which I have collected and kept in my box of memories.

hey little one.. i still remember you as a 17 year old, who came into delhi unsure of a lot of things around him, but you have done a great job.. I hope you loved your time in delhi as you move towards another phase in your life. I am sure you will do well..

a tiny little raindrop may thing itself too small
but somewhere a thirsty flower waits for its fall!
