Churchgate to Virar: surviving Mumbai
.
.
Just before the train comes to a halt
a sea of humanity scrambles in
pushing, shoving, cursing
skin against skin, mixing of sweat,
irritated voices and odours,
a heady cocktail after a day’s work
Victory! You have made it inside
The caveat is you might need to stand
nestled between armpits and bags
till you reach your destination
You mark all the seated passengers
closest to you rather optimistically
seeking space between two bodies
to fit yourself in like a jigsaw
You nudge them, nod questioningly
You want to know which station
they will get off at so you can sit
They reply with a promise to
bequeath you their precious seat
The singing beggars jump on board
It’s an arduous journey that needs
bhajans or bollywood songs
to dispel the oppressive heat
When an empty seat is spotted
with the keen sight of an eagle
you swoop in on your prize
You sit and savour your victory
while your aching feet thank you
When your destination arrives in an hour
all you need to do is stand and affirm
your intention to leave to the universe
The train magically pushes you out
You have survived yet another day
.

🖤 I often picture you
Walking alongside us, telling a story
Never just a story but something we needed to learn
You appear to be so austere from first glance
But the witty and even serious moments that break your face into a grin always make me lighter
You always know my heart
Even weighted by your own struggles
Ever my fondest champion
And example of the meaning of true love 🖤.....

Lovers must keep trying, 'cause haters are never gonna stop!
Jumping in puddles of a muddy heart,
the waters get dark,
and the temperature drops.
Opt to get wet,
to be cold,
to get dirty;
Lovers must keep trying,
fighting to be heard.
Worthy in the eyes of the one,
lovers must trust the timing,
and believe in what has not come.
Haters are never gonna stop love.
