It Is Of No Use - A Poem

The luxury car is of no use,
If you're smoking cigarette in it.

The ground clearance of your SUV is of no use,
If you're spitting tobacco from the power windows.

The smartphone is of no use,
If your purpose is verbal abuse.

The 3rd largest army is of no use,
If your purpose is warning and not retaliation.

Your fighter planes are of no use,
If the pilots die due to technical snags and not in the battlefield.

Prayers are of no use,
If you're seeking ill for someone.

Education is of no use,
If you're not using it for the amelioration of the society.

Failures are of no use,
If you're not learning from them.

Spectacles are of no use,
If you're still unable to see the good things.

Your watch is of no use,
If you're still running late.

Your tongue is of no use,
If you can't stand against the injustice.

Your clothes are of no use,
If you end up letting others down.

Money is of no use,
If not invested for a noble cause.

Youth is of no use,
If caught in the vici…

Shoe Sketches 1


Football In Classroom

Did this sketch when I was in class 12th during my coaching class and completed the shading part on Metro while coming back to home. I had sketched this on the back of my notebook using only Red Ball-Point Pen (no pencil or eraser involved). Travelling on Metro can be very productive sometimes. My all favourite sketches were executed in the classrooms.

Purpose Of Life

[Birthdays are always special. But, sometimes I just don't find birthdays so special, I feel as if I've not done my part to celebrate or be happy about something...This is the reason that only three or perhaps four(not more than that) of my friends know the date. Following are a few lines which depict my thoughts towards the life and birth. Happy Reading!]

There's a reason for which you have taken Birth,
Fulfil it, and make your living a Worth.

Do something that world remembers You,
And people say- he was the person I very well Knew.

Those who are born Blessed,
With gold and silver in their Chest,
Must understand that everyone's not lucky to have their own Nest.

Loosen your pockets and be Benevolent.
Amnesty is the cause for which birthdays are Meant.

Let your birthday be a reason for someone's Smile,
Plant a tree or surprise a Child.

Helping destitute is a noble Cause,
I'm not asking you to set your moments of joy in a Pause,
Keep smiling, party hard and si…

A Tree House Sketch

Did this sketch for a young boy Harsh who lives in my neighborhood, for his holiday home-work...A quick one; took me roughly 20 minutes to complete.

Promises To Keep

[The following one was written when I was actually not able to sleep and kept murmering- Sleep! Sleep! Sleep!, Why I'm not able to sleep? And, the first line of my poem was born. I decided to pen it keeping the primary sound of "EEP." Here are the words of wisdom from a mentally troubled - sleep deprived man.  Happy Reading!]

Night is there and I’m not able to Sleep As I’ve promises to Keep.
Slope is Steep and I’m still moving As I’ve…
The path is difficult with thorns and cliffs, I’m travelling barefoot, not in a Jeep As I’ve…
The aim is Horizon even if I’ve to walk on Poison, My determination is Deep As I’ve…
Seeds are to be sown and fruits are to be Reaped, Be it season or bad weather, I’ll keep moving As I’ve…
Path is Dire, as narrow as Wire, I’ll climb or Leap As I’ve…
People say- My hope will Die, I’ll keep moving to prove their words- A Lie, I’ll be patient and not Weep As I’ve…
My love in the valley pulling me Back, Heart’s loaded with an emotional Sack, But I’ll…

Ants In My Pants - A Poem

[How many times you have found Insects creeping in your clothes? Well, I get Goosebumps just by the thought of it. I have encountered such situations a several times…Ants, Wasps, Bees – I have been bitten by all of them. And following is a similar story - A little kid from School Hostel who has found the army of tiny Ants in his Pants. Happy Reading! ]
