I am a pahadi
Which is to say
That I live on chai like
A sunflower lives on the existence of the sun
You will almost always see me turn towards
The tray full of steamy hot chai
being brought into a room.
I will ask you
If you have ginger at home
Right after you ask me to make chai
Because ginger tea
Can make everything better.
And the world might need
All forms of narcotics to
Get them talking
But a loud sip from a steel cup
Will send me rolling stories from
My tongue onto your cup,
I will tell you of how
My grandmother would drink tea
Making loud slurps,
The whole house would know she has gotten up
From her afternoon nap,
I will tell you
How my father sneaks into the kitchen at night
And makes the both of us a cup of chai,
Smiling silently from behind the steam of the
Hot brown liquid,
Out of all the things he has loved in his life
I can bet on my life
That chai is one of the top three
And believe me
When I say
That the quickest way to get everyone in my family
To gather into a room
Is by presenting a perfect brew
Of tea leaves and milk
Because trust me
My mother only trusted my adulthood skills
The day I presented to her
The perfect cup of tea
I almost heard her say in my head
“You my darling,
Which is the pahadi equivalent of “Jaa simran ja,
Jeeley apni zindagi”
And trust me,
Making chai is a an art
That I have had to perfect
And I have had my battles with it
Like the time I put salt into it instead of sugar
I felt like I had let down my clan.
Is not just a hot beverage,
It’s not your caffeine shot,
It’s not what gets you going
It’s an emotion
That is passed on in my family
So the next time
You see me looking into the distance
Amidst a big crowd
When Negi aunty has created a chaos about loosing her
Left shoe outside the kirtan,
Know what I am looking at-
It’s the thermos full of chai
Making it’s way into the room.

. As time elaspe, i start to see the unending journey in which i partake. Much clarity disclose on the presence of good with existence of evil; cause one does not exist without existence of the other.
So as i journey, i go with the understanding that duality is a fiction of this reality, and i choose to remain equanimous with the understanding that we shall all be reunited
In the involvement of 'The Infinity Love'.❤️
I'm a child who never grew up. I'm a child who loves who I have become, although i didn't have the best past, I don't own the best memories. But I may be the annoying, I could be the most clingy person you know. I could be that person who is always spamming, I may be that person who is always ASKING if you really alright. I could be that person who posts too much, that person who talks alot. I could be that person people talk about behind there backs. But what you need to know is I am myself. I donot stand here to fit in people's descriptions of me if you want to control my life you have to walk in my shoes, the problem with you walking in my shoes is that my shoes only fit me and me alone. To walk my life you would not last day because Their was many times I tried to commit suicide, many times I lost the battle.But at heart I am a child, a child who holds onto the past, a child looking for some thing only found in fairy tales. I might be that girl who smiles and nice but I face my own troubles, I don't like to voice out my problems, I like to try help others with there own.
You see you cannot have a victory if you never stand and win your own battles.Never hesitate to tell me the truth or your thoughts, don't try lie to me about you being ok, And no I will not be the person to telk you, hey everything will be okay. I will be the person to stand beside you in the front lines of your battle.Know I am a child Full of Courage.. I am myself. .

There are times,
when my legs shiver with your touch,
and I let your hand slide further.
I call you by your name,
and you whisper a little secret in my ear.
There are times,
when all I have is your name wrapped,
under every inch of my skin.
I see things that,
you make me see with your eyes.
I see all that you want,
and everything that I feel.
I hear you breathing,
a little faster,
as you kiss away my insecurities.
There are tunes you hum in my ear,
that resonate solely with the strings of my heart.
I feel you touch me,
like your hands scribble a love poem on my body,
and I read it,
as your lips travel me.
I smell the scent of desire,
yet you never ask for more.
The mist of love covers your body,
like an imperfect painting.
I see your eyes,
searching for ways to love me,
and I look into yours,
as I ask you to hold me still,
and fall with me in a void.
Come lay with me, love,
for whatever I see, wish, or feel,
reaches within you,
for you never ask for more.
