I recently read a story “Horegallu” by one of the most evergreen authors, Sudha Murty. Her stories make me connect scenarios from the recent past to that of our generation’s era, where a complete ‘generation gap’ is found within a span of just 3-4 years! A part of her story reads… “Horegallu literally means ‘a … Continue reading Stories and Now…
Some say ‘love is an ocean…’ It’s fierce like a wave. That disturbance with a rave, for life, heart and mind. It’s pacing passion with eyes of a blind. Late nights with a full moon sky, the waves of love raise above and high. Some say ‘love is an ocean…’ It’s quiet and soothing. With … Continue reading #Poem# Is love an ocean…?
What is more important for a man… after committing a mistake, its realisation or its punishment?? There were two children, I don’t wanna name… Cause each name reflects a pre image. For us is a shame, that we can never stay unbiased, for we are weak and tame. . So, let us call them ‘A’ … Continue reading The BALANCE…(Mistakes)
“We never lose people because we never own them” And then when we don’t even want to own people, but seek only the DEVOTION OF SELF…. is a little sublime oblivion called LOVE. ~Soumya Somani Continue reading LOVE….(1)
Lots of moonlight and a little bit of rain… That’s all I need, when I’m drenched in pain An aching heart and a dying soul cares neither loss nor gain. I don’t wanna feel it anymore… Let me be heartless once again… ~Soumya Somani Originally written on: 07/03/2020 Continue reading #Poem# Once Again…
“Presence” is such a deceptive term. You disappeared even though I held you firm. Always here right beside me… I can hear, touch and inevitably see. But still can’t express, still can’t feel that you’re here for me when I need to heal. ‘Presence’ I believe is in heart and mind. Dark distances, yet connections … Continue reading #Poem# DECEPTION
It’s when the tears don’t fall but stay, And the throat gets choked to weigh. When the trembling voice is swallowed back. The heart wins and the brains lack. Pens really could be mightier, I wish… But the violent silence plays the trick. Penned by ~Soumya Somani Originally written on~ Aug5, 2019 Continue reading #Poem# Stay!
This is a poem in a story in a poem(if at all it makes some sense….) Hope you like it… The Prince of Country ‘Z’ PART-1 Pain, though revealed sometimes has no cure. Deep enough, not to be unsealed, should be left unnoticed for sure. All the tiny problems… From early alarm beeps and … Continue reading The Prince of Country ‘Z’
Landscape after a long time… So what do you like more- the mountain heights or the deep waters!? Continue reading Snowscaping ❄️
“The sole sky shrieking and the stars are dim. The fainting clouds fall-off all around. The thirsty tempest trips me to tears. Hearing the howls of night, the only sound.” All these reasons that I blamed that hindered me and made me tame, barred me from the ‘Great Flight’, that is in my reach but … Continue reading #Poem# Fear of Flight
In the game of playcards called ‘Life’ that’s universal and rife, was I, sent as a player with clues for neither a shield nor a slayer. The rules to play, the rules to win are unalike for everyone within! I got to know there’s a card that’s rare… It’s hidden and brief, deep down … Continue reading #Poem# The Card of Happiness
समाप्त करता हूँ… अब मैं समाप्त करता हूँ… वो सफर जिसके अनंत होने की कल्पना की थी। आपको तलाशते हुए मेरी निगाहें आप ही पर टिकी हुई थीं जब उलझ कर रह गए उन डोरियों में, जिन्हें थामे रखने की ज़िद थी। कागज़ की कोशिशें लिये… वक्त की बारिशों में भी भीग गया। हम … Continue reading समाप्त करता हूँ…/ I end…
A heart that beats louder than a cry, the burn is all within and the tears are dry. A smile that fades with a mark of glint. With a soul that’s pretty, but yet no hint of the fact how pious you are! That’s where I belong, they said shedding a stilling star!! Penned By- … Continue reading #Poem# BEYOND! [Sestet]
Hello folks!! I’m very excited to present my first ever HAIKU in front of you!! So here it goes… Though never fulfilled… Some wishes are mirrored back by stars as blessings!

No one is born heartless…. It’s just that some lose it too early to the world… Don’t look at yourself, Look for yourself…! Where are you… is the spot only within you, where stands some peace under the shower of hope. 💙💙💙 Penned by- Soumya Somani Continue reading #Poem# YOU… [Sestet]
The following poem tries to describe the life of a physically challenged person who is filled with positivity and has an enormous experience of life, but still finds something missing when the end arrives….The personification of a window says it…. THE WINDOW I’ve seen the little raindrop winning the race that seemed so unfulfilling! I … Continue reading #Poem# The Window
The strong rigid melted, and the broken pieces still pristine! The early Sun forged silently at night… But the setting Sun, praised by many… “Oh! Serene” Those massive dollar rocks resisted and broke, still the dime dust relished a great flight! Some beautiful faces hurt much more… Beautiful heart chose a poor mask in spite! … Continue reading #Poem#Wry!
ऊपर से ये चंचल सागर, लहरें रसिक नज़र आकर भी क्या तुम्हें मालूम था कि कितना शांत, गहन है भीतर जाकर! वो देखो एक खूबसूरत नज़ारा है वहाँ… तारों से झिलमिलाया, सितारों से भर आया आसमां| पर क्या उसके पार वो अकेलापन देखा…. जिसकी विपुल काया में वो अकेला ही है समाया! इस गतिमान पवन … Continue reading अन्त: मन
The Death, Life is always nearer than the death seems to be. Life is so vague, that the far off doom is all we see!! The death never walks to you… Till you yourself don’t arrive, at the remnant of life. Let me tell you as being already dead. The coda of a book is … Continue reading #Poem# -X-

When I was a small girl of six almost, I often had a fear of getting lost! Now when I’m a little older, I rise…. I choose to lose, myself into your eyes.

A Struggle To Die I struggled to die within you. But you kept fueling the fire in yourself, of the memories of Déjà vu. I tried to run, run away! Leave you in the iced isolation. But in the warmth of heat, how could the cold stay!! ~ Soumya Somani Just relate the words ‘fire’, … Continue reading #Poem#A struggle to die. [Sestet – 2]
Escaping in the Nightmare The shattering clouds escaping into the death of the foul gale and the fowls pale, veiling into the ponds that waited for waters in the evenings that yawned. Nightmares scare those, whose reality is not that worse. My torment dreams seem more restful than the reality of curse. ~ … Continue reading #Poem#Escaping in the Nightmare
REGRET! I know you loose control! I understand….. the escaping console…. I know you get busy, I know it’s rough, it’s uneasy…. But don’t say you don’t know ME! I’m stuck in the memories of thee. I’m still there…. where I was. It’s not a stop, it’s just a pause… You’ve forgotten life, you forgot … Continue reading #Poem#Regret!
When I was a little girl of just 6 or 7, I always wished, “Oh I wanna eat that!” (that moon). I never wondered if it was even possible or not, I just demanded. Fortunately, having a cool and intelligent dad helped. One day, to fulfill the wishes of her stupid and stubborn daughter, he … Continue reading I ate the Moon 🌙 once!

To imagine and think…. I yawn there, and there I wink. That’s my only place to breathe. I love to be there indeed! I sit there, there I sleep. I rise there, I dream so deep. High above the sky it lays. Oh! All my rage…. is bound in cage!! I paint, I see, I … Continue reading #Poem# The Attic!

You might have noticed that I try to give my poems(specially couplets) an abstract feel. For some, these may sound cheerful and happy. But when felt, these appear to be gloomy and melancholic. I try to merge contrasting feelings in my simple words. Hope this octave describes it…. I’m not alone I never laugh … Continue reading #Poem# I’m not alone [Octave]

आकाश मे परछाई एक दिन मैने, आकाश मे परछाई देखी……….. सोम रूप चहरे पर, पावक मुस्कान आई बैठी I नभ सी अनन्त…. व्योम विशाल, प्रात: पावन सी पवन समान…… सन्सार सी सच्ची, मधुर मुस्कान I हर्षोल्लास पूर्ण उसका होगा मन, विचार आया उठ मुझे एकदम I सर उठा देखा मैने………. आज … Continue reading #Poem# आकाश मे परछाई/A Shadow on Sky

I had a spark in me, was growing short and quick. Intense and bright, but it did not stick. Out to see, was a glowing drain. But inside of me, I was dull of pain. My heart parades, Ya! I have a faded shade…….. The lights were on, My shadows gone! I turned it low, … Continue reading #Poem# Faded Shade!
One fine day, I asked ‘me’….. How to have peace, what all I need. I thought in ease, deep indeed! …………………….. Oh! Do I need pearls and brands? Or a call by ‘hearts in hands’. No! I don’t need it at all….. All this is just a wish overall. ………..………….. Do I need the ‘Power’ … Continue reading #Poem# All I need…

The stars gleaming from the heaven… And we gazing at them through a window. Are all alone, from the heart, from the soul. Strong cold winds, pass and giggle and roll. …………… For some, those stars are a mystery. For some, are just constellations. For some, some are planets. And for some, just correlations. ……………. … Continue reading #Poem#SOLO STARS✨
When I was up at the sky, I could touch the stars. I was on my way… Just to feel the spark. When I was down in the ocean, It was dull and dark. I could feel the pressure…. It was all like the dart. “Either raise up that high, that the lies lay far… … Continue reading #Poem# At the sky, down the ocean
One day a great teacher asked us, “We all need someone with whom we can share all our feelings and pain. Don’t we?” And most of the obvious answers were, “Yes! We need a friend or a partner who can make us feel better in rough times.” But I’d rather say, “Do we REALLY ‘need’ … Continue reading Do we really need someone to share our pain with?
I’ve named this piece of art ‘ABSCAPE’ which simply means ABSTRACT + LANDSCAPE. You can see there are three concentric rectangles.[Coloured – Black & White – Coloured] But did you notice that the two specific colours, ‘Black’ and ‘White’ do not change in any case. This reflects our ‘CHARACTER’. The change in character of a … Continue reading ABSCAPE!!
We often hear that ‘old age’ is ‘second childishness’. But is it true for every old person? And even if it is, then do they really enjoy their next chance after suffering great deals of ups and downs in life? Here’s a short poetry of mine depicting an old aged’s life:- THE RUSTING SOUL Sunk … Continue reading #Poem# THE RUSTING SOUL
Here I am sharing one of my old poems today with you. This is a ‘theme’ with a tinge of personification.

WHEN I MET THE ‘TIME’ It was the … Continue reading #Poem# WHEN I MET THE TIME…..
Many of us find ourselves ‘not being creative’ sometimes. But ‘creativity’ is just like one of our sense organs and we just need to put it into service. Sometimes, our creativity plays the trick of camouflaging. But where does it go? Infact, I’ll ask, “Why does it even go??” This is because since our childhood, … Continue reading ACCEPTING CREATIVITY
“Struggle for existence and survival of the fittest”:- Quite a biological quotation. But why do we misinterpret this? I’ve heard people using these lines as a ‘mantra’ to get successful in life and even earn recognition. But I think ‘hardwork’ and ‘persistency’ will provide a better substitute for ‘struggle’. Using the ‘Cut-Cross’ tactics and pulling … Continue reading WHY STRUGGLE FOR EXISTENCE?
Hey! Today I’m here with a new abstract coming on my mind, and I’ve named it “Boon in disguise”. Have you ever faced any problems or difficulties in life which left you distressed? I guess your definite answer is ‘YES’. [And if it’s a ‘NO’; then believe me, you are the luckiest person!] Well, you … Continue reading BOON IN DISGUISE
Hi! Today I’ll talk about something which is not related to some specific word or definition. And I’ll try to express myself using one of my paintings.

Let’s talk about some very general and common, yet revolutionary words. The words, “Cool” and “Smart”. What do these words actually mean to us !? Why do people think that exhaling ‘show off’ is being smart. Or suppressing someone is an act of showing your superiority and smartness. We are often mistaken! Aren’t we? But … Continue reading LETS BE COOL & SMART !!
