I write about simple things that often miss one's eyes in a very simple language. Striving to be simpler with time and experience. Started out as a writer. Realised there are no good writing platforms for smartphones. Started YQ with Ashish. Now on a mission to make the world write. Reach me at harsh@yourquote.in for any help/collaboration. My last book, Green Mango More: Stories from Childhood (2015), is a collection of 36 funny tales from my childhood. Check it on Amazon below.

My bed
has become our pet.

It stays awake
the entire night,
looking at the road,
creaking, 
hoping it’s you who is veiled 
in that silhouette.

I was surprised at first,
for it has never seen you,
you who is yet to arrive.
Then I remembered
how some of my dreams
with you in them
might have spilled 
on to the pillow, on to the bed.

Bedpetting.

Sometimes,
just a thought of you
flutters by,
a memory flashes
and a shiver runs through 
my entire body
as it shyly
remembers your touch.

Sometimes,
just a thought of you
flutters by, and
I miss you so much.

Flutter.

I look out of the window,
hoping to find you
on the road.

Then I see you,
perched on the railing,
picking twigs for your nest.

Moving on
isn’t just about moving to
a new place, a new city,
it’s also about moving into 
a new home.

On moving.

When I try to imagine the important people in my life, I don't see their faces but the emojis they use. That they bombard my WhatsApp window with. A friend uses this 🕺🏻a lot and now every time someone sends me this, it reminds me of her. Or that frequent user of 🌸 who changed my habit of using throbbing red hearts that look like jiggly bums with a subtler flower. And another one who replaced the flower with a sunflower. 🌻 More character. Or the perpetual smirk face emoji 😏 that the unimpressed non-Sardar friend (reference: Kanan-Biswa PMR) sends. Or the 😜 that the perpetually funny (sometimes lame) friend adds on to every retort. Or the 🙄 my school crush says every time I try to flirt.

Right now, I was talking to a friend who alternates between 🙂 and ':)' and I asked how does she decide which one to use. She wrote: 

"😊 is more mechanical. :) more personal."

I sent a : ) in return. She replied with a 🙂

Emoji people.

I wish you are around
so that I can capture you 
in paints
than in words 
that are never enough,
hence, few.

Unlike words,
paints can be touched.
As can you.

Rainbow that you are.
