The season is Summer of '92, the country is Kashmir, the girl is my next door neighbour.
To express my affection to her, I sew a few words together with a lead pencil:
The luminous crescent of Ramadan is even jealous
of the charisma of your deep-set hazel eyes,
and the waterfalls of Srinagar even yearn
to bathe in the dust of your milky-white feet.
I like it, she said.

One cannot step twice in the same river.

I am fond of learning different languages, travelling by train, and exploring cities on foot. I am especially fond of the Chinese, Greek, and Persian cuisines. At the end of a long day, I prefer to unwind with classic / psychedelic rock music.
