Just reading her, just listening to her teaches you so much... I do not know about others but whenever I read her quotes or come across a piece of composition by her I can not help but wonder, how accurately it resonates with me !! That is the power , the beauty of her words, simple yet so powerful, each and every word. No wonder she has been and continues to remain an inspiration to many ,men and women alike..I love you Maya Angelou. Yes, love liberates...

“Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.”
― Maya Angelou...

Rest in Paradise angel.... and forever in my heart..... You are and will remain one of my favourite windows to the world of writing..

(Winfrey released a statement Wednesday calling Angelou her mentor, "mother/sister" and friend.
"She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life. The world knows her as a poet but at the heart of her, she was a teacher. 'When you learn, teach. When you get, give' is one of my best lessons from her," Winfrey said.
"But what stands out to me most about Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it's how she lived her life. She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace. I loved her and I know she loved me. I will profoundly miss her. She will always be the rainbow in my clouds.")

That moment when the only song playing on loop is cacophony of birds...with an occasional lip sync by the beetles and the crickets...that moment when the sunrays shrouded in fog carress your cheeks 'houle se', that moment when the ' me' and 'you' becomes 'us', effortlessly...yes effortlessly.. That moment when the wind whispers a long forgotten lullaby in your ears and a drop of rain on the cheeks reminds you of that first kiss...that moment when silence speaks and you listen...that moment when love means holding hands and an emoticon is enough to convey millions...yes.. That is THE moment.....

The many words which throughout the day,
I weave, hoping to share with you.
By dusk,half of the 'many words'
seem irrelevant.
By night, half remain
What we both understand
are the 'never
spoken' words,
which you thought and I devoured.....
......Yes, this includes the sweetest 
and the bitterest,
also the heard
and the listened.
By morning we forget
half of the littlest,
and soon it is 
another beautiful day.

FIVE ELEMENTS.../ পাঁচটি উপাদান...

Mati, kath, dhatu, aagun o jol
aami purno.
ek guchcho mon kharap aar asrujol.

মাটি, কাঠ, ধাতু, আগুন ও জল
আমি পূর্ণ।
এক গুচ্ছ মন খারাপ আর অশ্রুজল.....

SHOONYA.../ शून्य...

ek shoonya,
kabhi kuchh nahin,
kabhi bohat kuchh.
ek ehsaas,
nirjeev se zyada,
mrityu se kam.

एक शून्य,
कभी कुछ नहीं,
कभी बहुत कुछ. 
एक एहसास,
निर्जीव से ज़्यादा ,
मृत्यु से कम.

ADHAA PYAR... / आधा प्यार ....

Woh adhi cup coffee,
thali mein rakhi adhi roti,
woh kuchh aloo ke tukde,
adhi katori daal aur dahi,
adha sa chocolate,
is adhe pyar ko samet te samet te
main kab poori ho gayi ,
pataa nahin....

वो आधी कप कॉफी,
थाली में रखी आधी रोटी,
वो कुछ आलू के टुकड़े,
आधी कटोरी दाल और दही,
आधा सा चॉकलेट ,
इस आधे प्यार को समेटते समेटते,
मैं कब पूरी हो गयी,
पता नहीं……

You've been everything,
timorous, pompous, spendthrift.
Yet you are my heart......
