Somewhere @ Nowhere - 32

I now have so many copies of my book ...

Wondering what to do about it

Options -

1. Gift it to people (Of course!) ... People in and around Mumbai can get it from me!
(Outside, it'll give rise to logistical issues!)

2. Gift copies to vendors outside Vashi and other railway stations!

Any other ideas ?

Would love to hear from you (whoever read this blog; maybe you can drop me a line!)

By the way, You can order it from -

Who am I ? (Part 2)

Once again I wonder,
Who am I ?
Someone, somewhere,
Just another guy?
A dreamy explorer, or
An exploring dreamer;
Or sitting motionless like
A disinterested viewer?
Like a flowing river,
Charting its own course,
Or a stagnating pond,
Choking at its source?
Like those high mountains,
Kissing the infinite sky,
Or those large stretches of land,
Endless and dry?
Or a resident of two worlds -
Each with its own ordeal
One world uninhabitable,
The other one unreal?

Creatively Challenged

I stare blankly at the computer screen.
Somewhere deep within I feel a pinch,
I hope to unlazify my grey cells
But they refuse to budge an inch.

Then I look within myself again
And search for that source of humor,
Which was there once, I believe
And wonder if it was just a rumor!

And to find a story somewhere, I hope
In the faces of people I look around
Each of them has a tale to tell.
But nowhere are my instincts found.

I stare deep inside within me,
And all I can find there -
Is a soul stuck in a time warp,
And a big void everywhere.

Who am I ?

Who am I -

A frog in a well who wonders,
That this is the best place,
And asks if the ocean is any better?

Or a deer in the forest that knows,
That it has but limited control
Over his the fate that awaits?

Or a bird soaring up in the sky
With the world as its playground
And dreaming to soar even higher?

I wonder ...
Is there is a different answer for
What I am and
What I want to be?
