With a smile of a child,

And a heart made of gold,

She walked into my heart,

Like an angel of my world.

So often we dreamed,

Of a small house on a beach,

Made not of bricks but made of love,

Where one day we shall together live.

Our colours didn’t matter,

Not did our castes,

All that did matter,

Was our love and our dreams.

One day suddenly the world around me changed,

She parted with me saying her marriage has got arranged,

She behaved with me as though we had never before met,

And all the promises were never ever made.

I toiled, I tried, I fought to get her back,

I failed each time for her support I never had,

Thinking that one day better sense would prevail,

I continued to work hard to make our dreams real.

Years later, one day we met,

Thinking she has returned,

My face had glittered.

She hadn’t still married,

But had so much changed.

I was called a liar,

When I said I still loved her,

I was called retarded,

When I said for her I always had waited.

May be she is right,

I indeed had been mad,

For I so long mistook,

A demon to be an angel,

A fiend to be a child.

I understand today I had been greatly wronged,

But it doesn’t matter to me as I am now not alone,

It doesn’t really matter what she has done,

For in the past we had so much fun.

As memories of the past take over once again,

In the arms of my angel, some love I feel once again.

What if she is not with me for real,

Can she ever go away from my heart,

Where she always had stayed and forever will.

(This poem is a sequel to the poem 'THE GREATEST BEAUTY ON EARTH' and composed on 28/07/2010)


More beautiful than beauty personified,

She is the greatest beauty on earth,

The smile of hers is just so sweet,

The very glimpse of her makes me feel so relieved.

Her eyes much brighter than diamonds shining bright,

Her lips much redder than the roses so red,

The grace of hers even the peacock envies,

The greatest wonder on earth is she.

The face of hers is a reflection of her heart,

She is so caring and so much kind.

Don’t you wanna know now,

This angel in our earth?

She is my world,

She is my all,

She is my life,

She is my love.

Who am I?

What is my name?

Where was I born?

Who is my mom?

These streets unfamiliar,

The people unfriendly,

This world is unknown,

Yet this is my home.

This is my life,

No hope of any love,

The very sight of mine,

Make the people go to laugh.

This is my life,

This is my world,

I know not this place,

Yet this is my home.

Where am I?

What is my name?

Where was I born?

Who is my mom?

Who am I?

My life was empty,

My surroundings void,

Loneliness and sadness filled up my world.

I wanted some love,

But there was none by my side.

And then,

You came upon me,

Sat by my side,

And when the times were hard,

You gave me your love.

Days, months and years passed,

And time made you say goodbye.

Time took me back,

To my earlier world,

To my past life,

Still everything empty,

My surroundings void,

But no longer tragic,

No longer sad.

I have found now my truest friend,

Whom no time can ever fade,

Who will follow me to my deathbed,

My only companion, my only friend,

Loneliness, my truest friend.

I am alone,

And my world is empty,

I fear not losing,

Coz I have nothing.

No hope to gain,

No fear to lose,

That is my life,

Loneliness filled.

Once there were two friends namely Rohan and Roshni, in a small town in Assam called Dibrugarh. Although both went to different schools, they used to be together whenever they were not in school-played together, studied together and did everything together. Roshni was very brilliant in studies while all that captured Rohan’s interest was art and crafts. He used to make different woodwork and present it to Roshni. Roshni was such awed at his brilliance that she in fact idolized him.

However, once they grew up, the scenario changed completely. Rohan’s attitude towards studies often earned him punishments from teachers. Although Roshni tried to make him to study harder but studies were not his cup of tea. He simply could not concentrate enough on studies and as a result, his performance in class began to deteriorate. In their board exams, Roshni passed with high grades in all subjects while Rohan just managed to scrape through. Now, Roshni started to find the company of her old friend disgraceful and his brilliance in arts and crafts stopped amazing her anymore. She in fact started avoiding him now.

After school, Roshni went to study Commerce in one of India’s best colleges and passed out with flying colours. She immediately joined one of the best investment banks in the world after college. Rohan in the meanwhile took admission in a local college and after two unsuccessful attempts at the first year examinations; he gave up and quit studies. He started working for a small artisans shop in Mumbai.

While working, Roshni fell in love with a colleague and married him. Within a few years, they became three when she gave birth to a baby boy. All this while, she never bothered to contact Rohan. She did not even invite him for her wedding. Rohan although knew all that was going on in Roshni’s life did not go to meet her as his presence may not make her feel too good.

Years later, tragedy struck. The bank in which Roshni and her husband were working closed down during the recession and they were without jobs. No company was ready to hire them at that time when the markets had crashed. They had loans against almost everything they possessed. After months of applying to several business houses for a job, they eventually received a letter from a Dubai based Interior Designing house owned by an Indian businessman. The letter said that they had heard good things about them from their previous employers and that they were hiring them to look after the Sales & Marketing section of the company’s Mumbai Office. The letter further stated that the company would take care of all their loans and asked them to join work immediately. It was only years later that they learnt that the Indian businessman who owned their company is none other than her childhood friend Rohan.

Author’s take

Friendship is not about showing to everyone that you are friends. It is about proving your friendship when time tests it. Even if one is treated badly by a friend, a true friend proves his friendship. Friendship does not hold grudges, nor does it seek favours. Friends are people who enter your mind and know more about you than you yourself. That’s why FRIENDSHIP is the most beautiful relationship that exists in this world.
