  • Hard times will be over some time. Soon. 
Maybe.
Maybe not. 
We will start our normal lives, complaining about the monotony. In near future. 
Or in a year or two. 
But God, let me not forget how lucky we are! 
When the orders are to stay home, we didn't have to look for one.
In this small one, we have You. 
And when the Sun goes down, we got You. 
Always. 
Because we know, You are just a prayer away.

  • WHO has declared #covid-19 as a pandemic. While doctors, nurses and researchers are tirelessly working to find a vaccine, we commoners are supposed to cooperate with the advices we've read, heard and been given to by the experts. 
Most people my generation are sane and educated (I say educated and not literate) to abide by the safety precautions we know of. 
We, also, already know that the virus spreads through surfaces, and not by air. (Probably a good thing, else the outbreak would have been even faster.) We also tlknow of the precautions government and health organizations have circulated. 
What we are ignoring is some of our habits that aren't good, right now. I'm doing my part by sharing a few points, I feel my generation (and also generations after mine) should give up amidst this outbreak.

1. Wash your pair of Jeans (and every piece of cloth you wear) every day. EVERYDAY. Even if you've worn them only for two hours. Clothes when infected takes 8-10 hours to die.

2. If you are sick, avoid hugging your grandparents/elderly parents on weekends when you go home to visit them. That way you won't pass any germs to those aged humans - for whom the virus is a bigger risk than yourself.

3. Don't be crazy for sanitizers. Leave them for travellers. Use strong hand washes or soaps if you have water facility available. 
4. Please close the tap while you wash your hands for '20 seconds.' You don't need to keep water running and waste it. We would need it even after the virus dies down.

5. Sanitize your phone. For God's sake, your phone has more germs than a toilet seat. 
6. Stop over stocking daily supplies, (if you are in India) so that you don't create unnecessary price hike. Situation in the USA and Europe is far different than ours right now. We still don't have that emergency.

7. Stop making memes on #coronavirus or Covid-19. Seriously, it's not funny. You are getting people worried whose lived ones are abroad or in affected areas. 
8. Stop spreading panic messages on social media. Everything is not a joke. Have some EQ. 
9. Don't act cool that it won't affect you. Be precautious. 
10. Add anything you can to this list for people our generation.

  • Sadness comes in waves.

At first, the thing that makes you sad bothers you to the very core. You cannot bear even the slightest and the remotest mention of it. Even a farfetched idea of it tears you into a million pieces. But as time passes, you train yourself to get over it because no one else is bothered not even your life. It goes on.

Then suddenly, on normal a Thursday afternoon at work, something that you read on the internet reminds you of it. A strange pain radiates from your chest up to your wrist and arms. It pinches. And then you tell yourself to forget it because you've to get back to work. The thought vanishes just as quickly and randomly as it surfaced. But at night, when you go home, this entire episode flashes in front of your eyes and you cannot do anything but feel excruciating pain in your heart. .
Sadness comes in waves.

One fine day when you are talking to your mom on the phone asking her about her wellbeing and a word she mentions reminds you of it. You sit down on the stairs so that you don’t fall apart literally. You sit down so that you become tiny in physical appearance thinking that this way not many can see that you feeling sad. Your voice shakes and you want to cry, but you tell yourself that your mom doesn’t need to worry about you so you gather the courage and talk softly and quickly end the phone call. 
But soon as you put the phone aside, the very thought kills you and makes you want to curl up in your bed and scream. Especially when no one is listening!

Sadness comes in waves.

One fine cold Friday evening you are driving back home from a pizza party and you are parked waiting for the traffic lights to go green. You are listening to Christmas lights by Coldplay and your eyes catch a glimpse of road side begger with anguish and it reminds you of your sadness. You almost shed a tear, and the car behind you starts yanking horn you change the gear and set the wheel rolling.

But soon as you get on the highway, the anguish returns and you cry like a kid who scratched his knee while playing. You ave to pull over to get yourself back together before you drive.

  • As promised, my new post is up. .
.
Falling in love…with myself all over again!
.
.
All along in the history of literature, sunsets have been stereotyped and romanticized far too much. But oh! How sadly I say today, it’s only tainted. What remains of it today for the romantics is labyrinth of little distant noises and flickering city lights that we forcefully assume to be twinkling stars.

  • I've had bad days so I know the value of good ones. 
I've seen times when I cried to sleep so I know what it takes to be strong. 
I've suffered unexpected losses so I value wins more than anything else. .
And all these days I had only one constant, Him. I've fallen and got back on my feet because I prayed God to heal. .
I get my strength from Him and I shall not forget Him on days like this. 😀

  • I found myself standing at the window, staring into the thin air and sunshine, and smirking for more than 5 minutes today. When I got back to reality, I realized I didn't think about any person or a thing. 
Surprisingly, all I had in my mind was the decisions I made, the feels I had when I i let go off people, the moments I have lived and the thoughts I've conceived.

I was automatically wearing a smile for quite sometime.

That's when I realized I've had heydays and I owe it to myself.

  • We all know a few people who tirelessly combat the otherwise visibly falling apart relationships just so that they do not have to be alone. Likewise, all of us had the misfortune to cross paths with the people who only resonated with our open and unhealed wounds. People who left unannounced soon as the scars did.

All relationships, whether parent-children, between siblings, friends, or even romantic, it is companionship that is often sought to stand guard the solitude of the other – just because we are terribly afraid to be alone.

In a world where everything is randomly occurring, journeys are distorted, and emotions are scattered, solitude is the only place of completeness. To each one of us, solitude may have different impacts depending upon our state of mind. But, overall, in complete solitude, one definitely experiences only singular kind of vibes – the one that is for you – uninfluenced, unadulterated by someone else’s presence and unpolluted.

  • Some of us are finding soul-mates so desperately as if they are the redeemer of our sins and the uplifter of our wretched-selves. .
.
.
Every once in a while life has hit us low enough to make us see the surfaces that we thought didn’t even exist. These lows - merely disappointments and temporary denials for things we were expecting to become permanent in our lives – are capable enough to make us feel we are the sinners and wretched. And we make ourselves believe that whatever is left of us is only an aftermath of the storms so created. Only person that can save us is a guardian angel, a soul-mate! 
However, not this time. Break the pattern. Let’s find that soul-mate within us.

  • Not glorifying "In my city" phrase.

They say my city has become cosmopolitan 
It's welcoming migrants, tourists, and invention.
.
There are businessmen in my city 
And there is rich heritage in the old city.

They say there are lakes and towers built large and high,
And there's laughter mixed with the loudest cry.

They all complaint that it's becoming hotter and mercury rises to 50
And that the rubbish is on roads, old city business men are filthy. 
I still love it all.
The metro, the heat, the rains, and the wall.

What hurts me is there's not a single word for poor little lives on road!
Do you know how they spend nights in the winter cold?

Each day as the sun sets,
The night breaks into two halves,

The rich go to their homes and feel warm
What do these street kids have other than the starry arm?

They lay underneath the canopy of dim shining lights, 
Shiver the cold away until the next sun shines.

  • We were broke and hurt. 
But never once have we forgotten to appreciate the delicacy.
There were times of reminiscence 
There were times of sadness
Tines of loss of people. 
Times when your opinions were not valued. 
But despite all that,
I love it when you didn't turn harsh.
You didn't become stone-hearted. 
It's very easy to be rude when you've been hurt. 
And despite all that,
I love it how your voices turn soft like an exquisite piece of art
And how your eyes glow like springtime Sun 
When you talk of colors
When you talk of smiles
And all the other delicate things of the world.

  • Falling in love is by far the most beautiful thing. And I've been in love more than once
With myself.
In the way my black sweater fits me on December nights
In the way my brown shoes sound when I walk the wooden floor
In the way my scribbled words scream loud and bold
In the way I stack my books in the prettiest nook of my house
In the way my fairy lights sing a silent jingle when they dim and glow alternatively
In the way I loved you once to learn to love myself more
Because it only takes one to love. "And you need to love yourself over and above everything and everyone else."
I found this truth and I'm staying true to it.

  • Life's not been kind. 
And never predictable.
It's desired
But only for a while. 
My heart burns
When unpredictability become a routine,
When accidents happen all the time,
When there's a surprise waiting for you 
At every stage,
When one moment my favorite human is with me and we are on talking only over texts in the next,
And when promises are made today only to be broken tomorrow.
It tires me off.
So much so 
That I yearn for monotonous, 
Mediocre, average days. 
Seasons now change in a day.
Sun leaves sooner than it should,
And night falls early.
My heart tries to cope up with the changes.
But how do I trick my brain? 
It sees, observes and decides,
And concludes it's all not such a good time!
Maybe I'll sleep a while
And when I wake up,
I hope it'll all be fine.
I'll wake up around the dearest faces,
Promises will echo through the ages,
The sun will be bright all round the year,
It'll rain only during August,
And for rest of the days, the air conditioning in my room will run at 25 degree Celsius.

    And for rest of the days, the air conditioning in my room will run at 25 degree Celsius.

Dr. Kalam's fourth death anniversary. .
I spent almost whole of my Saturday evening going through my library, social media pictures and photo gallery for a quick picture of one if his books I can click and post it. But in vain, none found. 
Lastly, my search took a turn when I began looking for the old treasures on my @facebook  timeline, I could effortlessly dig out this post.
I'll always have a special place for these words as the gist, magically, keeps on echoing whenever I'm making important decisions. Partly because I'm a staunch theist and partly because when a man of science can write with so much conviction about God's supremacy, it hits you differently.

  • Lighter arms and darker wrists, playing out until we dine

But she said, “Its fine, skin gets okay with time." Bruised knees.

Ma told she’d fix those bleeding knees

WWE flash cards and footballs.

Wrist wrestling in class and bowling in malls.

Memorizing WWE flash cards, until 12 o’clock

Because I can’t afford to lose to Ricky on the last block “Don’t play with boys you’re a teen-age girl now” “Wear sandals that make boys say wow”

Yet, Ma would gift me sweatshirts and Converse as presents and dad would want me to learn riding a bike.

All my life, seldom did I see anything that I can't do because I’ll turn to be a lady someday!

My friendship with boys was never questioned.

I was taught to hold the door for people walking with you, because it’s not a gender thing.

Splitting bills was mandatory. And lending a jacket to a male friend was compassion. 
Offering a shoulder to cry on for my friends who happened to be boys was just humane. 
Carrying my luggage and my shopping bags myself has always been my morale. 
I've learnt to kick start my moped so that I can rescue myself.

Nothing ever had been too rough, too tough, too heavy, too risky, too damaging for the beauty of my body, too high, too dry because I live in a female body. 
Things were simple, if my friend (male) is allowed to, I can do it too. It’s all legal.

But one day, a man walked up to me and told, "Let me help. You are a delicate lady, you’ll hurt yourself. How do you handle it all so gracefully?” It left me perplexed. Have I missed something on the life? Have I been living a fairytale where a lady is allowed to be at par with males and not be 'only tender'? #UshaB #wordsbyushab #feminist #femalevoice #alphafemales #alphaleaders #alphafemalesdontruninpacks #indianfeminist #feminism #indianwriters #writersinindia #writersnetwork #writerscorner #femalewriters #strongwomen #ibelieveinstrongwomen #womenofsubstance #saturdayevening #voiceoffemale

  • To that girl who has always been perfect at everything.
I know you led the forays and were in the forefront of everything you ever did.
I know you have developed a habit of not being mediocre. 
But I guess you should know that you have explored, and excelled, in the areas that were known to you, and all your teachers so far.
It's that time when you are venturing into the new territories. And these are wild ones. 
You are figuring your way of survival.
And in these times, it's okay for you to just take a moment at a time.
Trust me. Take a breath and trust me.
Trust me that these moments will turn into hours, hours into days and days into weeks. 
And in no time, there will be years to look back and be proud of your accomplishments.
You don't look back, I know. But understand that you've come far and conquered the easy lands.
The terrains ahead are difficult and you are doing good. 
Keep going, stop being good at everything, and start trusting your pace.
You never know whatever you are is already more than the most people have ever done at the first go.

  • I hate it when the clouds walk into my life. 
I shout deep inside, with no voices, "Go away!"
I sit there at my front porch and beg the sunshine to come back. "Come back, please.
"Kiss my forehead through the window next to my bed. I've kept it open only to let you be the first to greet me a sunshine morning.
"I have serious issues when rains stop by. Are you even listening?!
"Even if it has to rain, why don't you come back quickly?
O monsoon sun, come back through the clear skies, it has rained and hug me through the light from above the sky."

  • All during my teenage years, never once have we shared a typical mother-daughter moment. But I've always silently venerated her as my hero.
.
Gradually, as I started to develop my own opinions on life, I found foibles in my idol and picked up ideological combats with her. I choose to overlook a mother's rational apprehensions. Our arguments would rapidly escalate sky-high. However, she'd also make me smile just as quickly.
.
But as we grow old together - actually, me maturing under her supervision - I discover parts of her being which are supreme at every stage. Especially, when she mends the broken pieces of family and seamlessly weaves them back with plethora of love.
.
And I come to the realization that it's never a hero that I was fond of. It's the unconditional love of a lady for her family. I accept the now apparent reality that she is a mother who has endured decades of womanhood. She has always only been concerned about her daughter's well-being.
.
My hero resurrects as I 're-contemplate' a mother who  disregards her little girl's idea of going out at night. She does it not because she wants to restrict her, but because she doesn't want to see her child getting hurt.
.
In this process of growing up with a woman like her and not accepting flaws in my hero, I've found a lover with complacency.
.
I witness a daughter, a working lady, a wife, a mother and the finest spiritual being, all in my favorite human, my momsy! And that, definitely, is no less than a hero.
.
Mom, as you add a year to your life and times, you must've loads of memories to document, I hope my jaw dropping awe finds a spot somewhere. .
So, yes, I took time and wrote this on your birthday. Happy birthday, Momsy! 😘

  • We were broke and hurt. 
But never once have we forgotten to appreciate the delicacy.
There were times of reminiscence 
There were times of sadness
Tines of loss of people. 
Times when your opinions were not valued. 
But despite all that,
I love it when you didn't turn harsh.
You didn't become stone-hearted. 
It's very easy to be rude when you've been hurt. 
And despite all that,
I love it how your voices turn soft like an exquisite piece of art
And how your eyes glow like springtime Sun 
When you talk of colors
When you talk of smiles
And all the other delicate things of the world.

  • Some of us are finding soul-mates so desperately as if they are the redeemer of our sins and the uplifter of our wretched-selves. .
.
.
Every once in a while life has hit us low enough to make us see the surfaces that we thought didn’t even exist. These lows - merely disappointments and temporary denials for things we were expecting to become permanent in our lives – are capable enough to make us feel we are the sinners and wretched. And we make ourselves believe that whatever is left of us is only an aftermath of the storms so created. Only person that can save us is a guardian angel, a soul-mate! 
However, not this time. Break the pattern. Let’s find that soul-mate within us.

  • We all know a few people who tirelessly combat the otherwise visibly falling apart relationships just so that they do not have to be alone. Likewise, all of us had the misfortune to cross paths with the people who only resonated with our open and unhealed wounds. People who left unannounced soon as the scars did.

All relationships, whether parent-children, between siblings, friends, or even romantic, it is companionship that is often sought to stand guard the solitude of the other – just because we are terribly afraid to be alone.

In a world where everything is randomly occurring, journeys are distorted, and emotions are scattered, solitude is the only place of completeness. To each one of us, solitude may have different impacts depending upon our state of mind. But, overall, in complete solitude, one definitely experiences only singular kind of vibes – the one that is for you – uninfluenced, unadulterated by someone else’s presence and unpolluted.

  • Not glorifying "In my city" phrase.

They say my city has become cosmopolitan 
It's welcoming migrants, tourists, and invention.
.
There are businessmen in my city 
And there is rich heritage in the old city.

They say there are lakes and towers built large and high,
And there's laughter mixed with the loudest cry.

They all complaint that it's becoming hotter and mercury rises to 50
And that the rubbish is on roads, old city business men are filthy. 
I still love it all.
The metro, the heat, the rains, and the wall.

What hurts me is there's not a single word for poor little lives on road!
Do you know how they spend nights in the winter cold?

Each day as the sun sets,
The night breaks into two halves,

The rich go to their homes and feel warm
What do these street kids have other than the starry arm?

They lay underneath the canopy of dim shining lights, 
Shiver the cold away until the next sun shines.
