Looking Into The Mirror

Amy was kind enough to invite me to write a poem on this post, inspired by the pictures she shared with us. Do visit her site, her work is a treat to behold. 🙂

I am a lazy person, so while I penned these lines a week ago, I am only now putting them down here…So without further ado –

“I walked by many a window pane

But what I searched, I sought in vain

I looked ahead, I looked behind

I looked within my teeming mind

I looked without with tireless eyes

I looked despite my tired sighs

Was that the window that contained?

Is this the one that shows unstained?

That child, the image of the past

That man, of moments next to last

I ask of every pane I see

Are you the one? Mirror to me?”

I hope you like it Amy! 🙂

The World Is A Book...

These two photos seem to reflect a life journey. The young girl, who sits inside of the window playing with her iPad, soon will be turning into a beautiful, smart lady, like the one sitting right outside of the window. The second photo seems to tell a story of how a gentleman is into his adult life. Though life starts slowing down, it looks like he is enjoying a glass of wine, a find meal, and shopping; and the young man on his left may reflect his youth.

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  4. Beautifully done, Dr. Hb. I’m honored. Your eloquent poem takes these photos to a different level; it’s meaningful, as it tells some sentimental stories. My sincere thanks to you, Dr. Hb! 🙂
