[Poem] An Ode to Sachin’s 200…

Started more than 20 years ago, and still counting
Habit of breaching benchmarks, seemingly never ending

His cricketing brilliance never ceases to amaze
Manner in which he does them, warrants countless gaze

First 200 in ODI, it’s just another milestone
That record would be feeling proud, that “HE” was the one

What is left to achieve, evokes much curiosity
As we bow down yet again to the Little Master’s ingenuity!

[Poem] Across the stairway…

Never used to believe in love at first sight

Until I saw her across the stairway, other night

Eyes wide open, I stood there in disbelief

Pinched myself hard, oddly the pain was a relief

Alas, I have gone insane, the thought was frightening

Oh, her dazzling charm had truly struck me like a lightning

Took a step forward, with newly found courage

Drawn by the mysterious gravity of her stunning visage

Nowhere to be seen, my heart skipped a beat

Scanned all around, resilience never took a retreat

Now I definitely believe she was my love at first sight

Though I never saw her again, since that wonderful night…
