The Story Of An Untold Paradise Kandarpur: Summers - Go Fish !

    The temperatures were rising, maybe a 100 to a 120 fahrenheit, the expression across the state of Odisha was that, "It's Hot !", while somewhere around 11.8 miles from Cuttack, things were looking otherwise for this one house out of 150 other houses. The reason wasn't good food, or great air conditioner, nor great entertainment gadgets, the reason was the experience of a lifetime.    For my Ajja ( Mom's father), what made him chirpier than usual were his kids and grand kids around his ranch during summer, the ranch, that he had built as a dream, thinking that some day in future, all his kids will stay there and would have enough room for additional innovations, if necessary.

The Gift

What do you want ?
It’s your birthday..

Want to be a child..
All day outdoors as I stay..
Sweating profusely ignoring which I play.
Want to go wild..
Nakedly running around..
Flying away the lost kite that I found..
Lying dirty in the runway.

Want to play blind fold..
With a friend as I scold..
Pushing back loosening my hold.
Tricking me into the cave too old..
But when I open to see they are walking beside all the way.

Want to chase a butterfly..
Through the morning sky.
Touching as it flickers with a blink..
Sparing not even a slightest moment to think.

Want to jump into the river..
Splashing water all over..
Icy cold as lips shiver.
Opening to a lost world..
Diving into happiness profound.
While listening to the soothing sound..
Pulling myself to the ground..
Staring at the shore..
I will wait don’t you worry..
When you feel like come around.
