Desi Back to Desh

Between airports, airplanes and transit lounges


I think the magic formula that binds us together is that we are all a bit mad.

The team that stands and speak.

The lads that sit down and listen.

The women who walk in and stay.

The children who keep on dreaming.

Some time it takes just two of us,

half a generation apart, to change the world.

At times we can do it with one.

There is something in the air…

Serious young men with fire in their eyes

And strength in their hearts

question the nature of this beast, this itch, this fever…

And wonder if they will prevail

If a simple boo will be enough

Or there be more serious hurdles on the road.

The scarred warriors they look upto

still have smiles on their face.

Should they be glum, nay, ask for the wizard’s last sigh

That it may infect yet another crowd with visions of slain dragons

and burried treaures…


I think we are all a bit mad,

but I’d rather not be sane.
