Dear Bombay-
Since childhood I heard a lot about you
Now I wonder how it is all true
It just seems yesterday when I came near you
A nervous perplexed girl trying to find comfort in a few…
Now I know you a lot, its like we have a certain kind of knot
You seem a lot tragical, still at the end your vibe is so magical
How you survived the taj attack
It still leaves all of us taken aback
There is something that binds the people around you
It feels all the festivals over here a part of you
Its ironical how a Mercedes runs beside a beggar
Somehow still connecting all the peoples heart together…
Vadapavs and cutting chai are all time favourite
People over here work without any break
Queens necklace finds you solace
The Ganesh fest over here last for days
People face hardships but still say I am fine
Rich or the poor, the smile on their face always shines
Just like a fantasy land
You are someone where everyone is a Bollywood fan
If the rains are the heart, the local trains are the beats
Its so obvious this city never sleeps
Yes I am in love with the city of dreams
Aamchi Mumbai is all what I speak…

I Wonder –
I Wonder, I Wonder
When I began to ponder
From where these beautiful things emerge
With a smile submerged
From where the words originate
With the feelings they inculcate
Where do the words dwellAnd how do they spell
How would we express
If words remain suppressed
Submerged I am
In my own world
In search of unknown swirl
Unknown about the path
I begin to depart
In hope of a beam of light
That will take me to the right
When sunlight gleams
I will reach to the world of my dreams….

Journey of Life-
Looking around me I wonder
Will someone shed tears on my depart
And play its part
Will I lay lonely at my death bed
With all the leafs shed
Because life is just a play
Where we all have to stay
Playing your roles is a tough job
Not everyone can do this with a sob
Own rules it has
For one it shares
But alas you have to depart
Leaving all your parts
With a soul full of memories
With a peaceful deliverance
At the end we play our part
And take depart…

Glimpse Of Perfection-
The world always ought for a glimpse of perfection
She tried hard for the worlds satisfaction
Because she was not a perfect girl
With that magnificent swirl
She was not a daughter that always obeyed her father
She choose to be independent rather
She was a girl with flaws
That never took a pause
The world loved the way she flaunted
With the confidence she wanted
She was just a reflection
For a glimpse of perfection…
