(Dedicated to an open world)


From my very childhood

I was fond of windows!

Windows in my playhouse

Windows in my study room

Window seat on public bus

Window seat in my class

Window seat on airplane and train

Eating by the window in restaurants!


As grown up -

Bought houses with many windows

Even installed new ones for feeling mellow!


Suddenly God gave me another window

Which seems to be moving with my shadow!

Showing me the world with a vision anew

Beyond my imaginations and preconceived views!

Making me a lone spectator -

In a world full of actors!
