CHILDHOOD

A Poem By Sahithi Divi ( image: an art installation at Burning Man)

Have you gone back to  childhood? 

To the days of dodging ideas ,

Far from today’s disgrace,

Pages full of glowing stories ,

To moral rhymes about twinkling stars,

When it was easier to say , “I miss you”

Years of memories come alive ,

Taking a walk with albums from the time ,

To see the same Friends today ,

Meet for living the times,  that never come,

Regrets seem like a lesson ,

Pain can withstand your past ,

Everything may not feel right ,

Glad you got the roughest ride ,

Nothing fades with time ,

It only heals and passes on,

Like solitude came a long way,

Changing forms of life stammer,

The time of war for limited snacks ,

Coding plans for creepy sneak outs ,

Those times of bringing back dust, home,

Remember trading your sport cards?

Posters that made you a leader,

Imagination you left to novel comics ,

The child in you is far no gone,

Go back to your childhood ,

Tell them all , you meant a lot.

Thoughts Of A Girl

Written By Sahithi Divi

Why is my birth questionable…?

I not the goddess you worship ?


Why are you looking at me …?

My clothing choice is affected ! 


Why your dirty stare at me…?

My freedom is compromised !


Why are you rubbing against me…?

My fearful mind is unable to rest !


Why do you intimidate me …?

I am failing to self discover !


Why are you my decision maker …?

I will fade away in the lost way !


Why are you assigning me roles…?

My time will never belong to me !


Why are my mistakes less forgiven …?

Less chances to learn is inequality !  


Why do you practice patriarchy …?

You’re Oppressing my strength with power !


Why don’t you just make your own rules…?

You don’t know me to make mine !


Why don’t you let me free…?

I will always choose to be with you !

Beautiful Journey Of The Mountain Couple

Written by Sahithi Divi

She is my best friend from the senior school, her name is Saabnam . He is Prateek her best friend for ten years and counting… Met each other while pursuing their professional education in Delhi University. Their friendship turned into marriage and they found themselves in the village of Kalga in midst of Himalayas, Himachal Pradesh where they also grew bigger as they became parents of Gabbar, Bailey and Anami.

Mountains and the wilderness captured their dreams for ultimatley giving away the city life to their paradise , Jingle Jungle Homestay situated in Kalga. Prateek and Saabnam are one of the 60 dwelling homes inside the kalga village.

I was going to reunite with her in ten years. Everything has changed a lot in life since the time I met her last time. After the long 2 hour flight, 12 hour bus travel, 2 hour cab ride and then a 25 min uphill trek is when I finally met her ! it was intense and such pure bliss. All I can say about our reunion is that , I forgot everything else to the celebration I walked into, it felt like coming back to where I am suppose to be atleast once, finally !

Now about Jingle Jungle Homestay – in short

  • It is a home that comes with love of the 5 pack.
  • Surrounded by majestic peaks of Himalayas overlooking the valley coated with snow on the peaks and rushing rivers on the steep down views. Sky that almost contemplates every hour playing around with pristine colors held with gigantic mountain backdrops.
  • A plastic free village dominated by the apple orchards on every possible corner with scarcely hustled wodden homes decorated with bon fires.
  • Organic and sustainable kitchen where recipies can be requsted as per the availabilty of that day and enjoy the meal at tandoor and handpainted art on the walls.
  • Handwoven, recycled, local and sustainable home needs.

Equality often translates to fulfillment of souls. It generates happiness, the most important note of life’s music. We often wish for the beauty without investing into freedom and liberation. But Cheers to you both for breaking the paradigm of the man made reality.

Life Of Women Is Like a River

Comparing a women’s life to that of a river ..

Poetry Written By Sahithi Divi –

What is the meaning of your birth ?

The action plan for freedom ?

Existence is a gentle reminder ,

That you are a  nature’s blissful seed.

Flowing through the rocks of contentment ,

Expelling your art to adverse changes ,

When the time comes, you always made it .

Taking stand of transforming seasons ,

You fiercely move towards horizons .

Hard to introspect who has set the direction ,

However your life has channelised ,

Life still asks you for a share, isn’t it?

Forcing her years towards a destination,

Today becomes irrelevant for her.

And also irreversible !

Unconscious delivery of love, 

Motivated by expensive patriarchy,

You will be told to match the goals ….

After all the exhaustion, 

When you fall into the sea ….

Introspection comes to life ,

That soo many reviewed your growth ,

The Micro opiniated directions ,

Have all lead you to unfold ,

What you haven’t owned ,

About your life….

Then the question arises again ,

What is the meaning of your birth ?

YOU ARE THERE FOR YOURSELF

Written By Sahithi Divi – Poetry Narration Of A Person’s State Of Mind


I wish someone comes to see,

How often I am amongst nobody.

I wish someone comes to see,

How difficult it was getting for everybody…

Across densely decorated lives,

Streams of differences withhold us,

Like the revised versions of songs,

Anybody can learn to forget….


To move away from the  face of yesterday,

Counting on the memories, 

Counting on the dreams,

I wish someone comes to see,

How often I am amongst nobody……..

Come in for the cure of burning soul,

Like a broken heart determined to heal,

Sling shots of people debating,

Amongst the delusional voices of outcry……

Lost while returning from the last time ? 

“Dusted sky can host your pain” … 

Can this moment carry your reflection?

Indefinite lives is not a free choice,

Turn around the for the darker show time,

You will surprised by the tragic events,

And how you made it……

“Nothing is just yours alone,

Not even dreams will occur again”.

Play the greatest moderant in life,

Underplay attacks by real people,

Because you will often have to forgo,

And undo your soul shattering…….

Hustle into self discovery !

Count on your truth,

Believe in that story,

Because 

If you wish that someone comes to see,

That how often you are amongst nobody ,

You won’t go anywhere! 

Remember that “ YOU ARE THERE FOR YOURSELF”
