In that place where mind meets mind

Free verse from Chandrahas Choudhry

In that place where mind meets mind
Eyes speak to eye, and in the same breath hears
The long barred self is interwined
With one that it both needs and steers
A peace opens out and a music binds
One moment to another, and day to day
The soul runs free and all that it finds
It somehow both keeps and gives away.
Such was the place, or such the dream
That smiled, and then from me was taken
I slipped back into the common stream
My live moved on, but my faith was shaken

As I laughed

I don’t know if it was the day or was it more the reaction from Manoharji or just the words “thaki gayi dikri ? ” but I laughed till tears welled up in my eyes. I was too engrossed to realize that everyone on the floor had heard me and was even wondering what made me crack up. This was followed by another spurt of laughter after I read an email from a client.

As I came back home and squatted on the couch I tried hard to think of a time when I laughed like that.. Uninhibited and simple... I am amazed at how the smallest remarks make you laugh like there is no tomorrow. I have no particular reason to be unhappy but I still dont laugh all that often..

Hope there are more days like this..
