The Love-Cursed Voyage

We set off from the shore of love,
Love which gave rise to expectations,
Expectations of things going perfect,
Perfect as planned, as we sailed.

The day we headed into the sea,
The sun shined bright and the sea; calm.
"Bon Voyage" and waves, heartbeat fast,
Happiness in our heart flashed on our faces.

Days passed as we sailed into the vast sea,
Waves started drifting us hither and thither.
Dark clouds wandered, harsh winds blew,
We uttered "God, save us" but all in vain!

Thunders roared down the sky,
To the sea, we were sailing gleefully.
Lightning stroke and left us pathetic
Never did we expect this would happen.

We held our hands tight and prayed,
We held our breath long, then sighed.
If only we can reach the shores back,
If only we have not started the voyage.

The deafening thunder rumbled,
The volcanic lightning flashed.
We cursed the weather, we cursed love.
We blamed our fate. Our destiny as well.

Our ship started sinking, we panicked.
Seeing death trolling us, we lost our nerve.
We stayed in one another's arm,
We closed our eyes. FOREVER.

INTERVIEW: Lhakyila

Lhakyila is a 17 year old comedienne from Kathmandu, Nepal. She is an 11th-grader, studying Humanities at Rupy’s International School. She makes funny videos and posts these on Instagram, where she currently has more than 5k followers.
We sat down together a week back in the very cozy Hello CafĂ© in Boudha, Nepal for cups of coffee and some snacks, talked about our lives and her vines. (A vine is a short video, usually 5 to 10 seconds long of compiled clips of random stuff. They are frequently posted on social websites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc.) Our conversation moved from some weird jokes to rather more serious themes.

Tibetan New Year; LOSAR

Tibet is known as ‘The Roof of the World’. It has the highest plateau region on earth. It neighbours China on the north and India, Nepal, and Bhutan on the south.  The country is the source of river Brahmaputra, Indus, and many other major rivers flowing to India and south Asia. It is the homeland to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and 6 million Tibetans scattered all across the globe. We have been in India as refugees for the last 60 years.

Tibetan New Year also known as Losar (‘Lo’ literally means ‘Year’ and ‘Sar’ means ‘New’) is the most important festival on the Tibetan calendar. It falls very close to the Mongolian and Chinese New Year following a lunar calendar. The festivities last for 15 days and the first three days are the most important.  This year, it falls on the 2nd of March. According to Tibetan Calendar, it will be the first day of the Wood-Horse year 2141. We go to temples and worship, hang colourful prayer flags, sing and dance. We drink ‘chang’ (fermented rice bee…

Bare Tree

I’m a bare tree, just a bare tree. I bear no flower, no scent, No leaf and no fruit. I stand alone, all alone. I’m a bare tree, just a bare tree.
I once had flowers, others envied. A fruits-laden tree, many admired. I had leaves that beautified me. I looked complete but not anymore; I’m a bare tree, just a bare tree.
For long I stared at the tree next to me, It looked beautiful just as I used to be. The breeze carried the scent from its flowers. The leaves and the fruits made me feel; I’m a bare tree, just a bare tree.
I too had the flowers and the scent. I had the leaves and the fruits. I looked beautiful; not anymore. They left me all alone to say - “I’m a bare tree, just a bare tree.”
