A better Manipur

Posted by Rojit on October 29, 2015

I believe that there’s a better Manipurman

In heavens, her essence shall reach,

The mountains bloom with the valley,

Her soils dance with the monsoon,

And her wealth enamoured with peace!

I believe that there’s a better Manipur

Where children’s smiles resurface again,

Sound of guns locked in some dungeon,

Evils barely touching Her breath,

And birds’ croons wake us up…once again!

Let’s all believe in a better Manipur

Where the leaders are human once again,

Followers find reasons to have faith,

Fraternity with the system’s guardians,

And a place worth dying for, yet again!

A one-time Life

Posted by Rojit on October 1, 2014

A beautiful thing called LIFElife1
Half a second, half a pleasure
And in other halves, let there be dreams!
I want not an eternity to live,
Nor a bed of roses to rest,
But a few clouds in the sky free of hate,
Where I can play with all.

The vast emptiness of universe taught many,
Sometimes, surmising the absence of the Almighty
But for someone who knows to hope,
Who sees optimism even in sunsets,
Who believes in goodness of every heart
What has life taught you finally?
Other than living it to the fullest!

There’s a small tortoise that walks,
It won’t relax and it won’t stop
Till the last breath takes this life
Before that, let there be happiness
And smiles in every person I know,
And proud of being who they are,
All I wish for – let me be the reason.  

At the union of past, present and future
Beckoning the moments of this life,
Knowing the real meaning of this life,
Someday, my heart shall tear open to see
To see if the journey can be rekindled
But for this one-time-life full of gifts,
Let me be not sorry for any moment in past!!

The one thing in Life

Posted by Rojit on July 5, 2014

The serenity of my windows glass,
Through which my childhood has been captured
I broke down, I laughed, I got sick
But a life that it treasured..priceless.
And today I’m asking – am I ready?

The soothing sound of my granny’s croons
Of a song I don’t know, and may never
But the happiness in her face,
I never shall find with this salary,
The salary this long education gifted me.

Many years hence, I saw my childhood buddy,
With a tummy fit to be called pregnant,
And with eyes tired of toiling everyday.
I missed a part of life with friends like him.
Never to be replaced by some imaginary happiness.

When I get back home, the winds may not have changed.
I know the sunrise will still be beautiful
And so shall be the early morning dew drops.
But time’s not always there for this very short span of life.
It’s always the one question that finally bites –
What’s the One thing in life you’ll always be happy about!
