Me, She And Tata Sky Transfer

I didn’t know her. Neither did she. Fate intervened, and we met.

We talked, we laughed, and yes, we liked each other. The bond grew stronger, sharing our day to day activities, discussing our lives, our future.

We got engaged, and after a few months of wait that seemed endless once upon a time, we tied the knot.

Life was beautiful. Marriage made it gorgeous. With a constant company to share the thoughts and feelings, things were turning out bright. We were the best of friends, the ideal life partner to each other.

And then, fate intervened, yet again.

We bought a new TV. Large screen, LED, with an awesome sound quality and even more amazing picture quality. It adorned one of the walls in the drawing room, shining with its superior looks. It was one of our proud possessions, until the day when we took cable connection.

Our house soon turned out into a battlefield. While she wanted to watch songs, I preferred news channels. I was more into current affairs, while she loved watching updates on Bollywood affairs. “Why don’t you read the news paper?” she asked, changing the channels. “Why don’t you listen to songs on FM,” I retorted, the remote now in my custody.

Cricket matches were interrupted not only by commercials, but also by her daily soaps. She complained that I didn’t let her watch the episodes of Bigg Boss as my favourite News Hour debate was on at that time. And so it continued.

And then, fate intervened, a third time.

I came to know about Tata Sky+ Transfer from an online ad, and immediately showed it to my wife. The idea was brilliant, the execution novel. We realized that if we install Tata Sky+ Transfer in our house, we wouldn’t have to worry about conflicting interests in regards to TV programmes. While my wife can watch her reality shows and movies on TV, I can transfer my favourite News programmes and Sports on my mobile or tab via wi-fi and watch them in leisure. The best thing was that we can both watch our respective shows together. There will be no who-owns-the-remote challenges, nor any competition to sit in front of the TV first. Life would be so much easier. We immediately decided to go for it, and change our TV viewing into a splendid and rocking experience.

Mobile entertainment has an all new exhilarating definition thanks to Tata Sky+ Transfer. Handheld devices will broadcast our favourite shows and channels, whenever we are, wherever we are. I often have to travel almost an hour in bus to reach my office. I can easily watch my favourite shows on my mobile device that time, having recorded them earlier. Long journeys will no longer be boring.

Who doesn’t like to watch TV? After all, everyone has a particular choice of programmes, with our varied preferences of entertainment. As such, Tata Sky+ Transfer is a great initiative that will cater to everyone. It is Television viewing for the future – innovative, easy, and people friendly.

This is my official entry to '#TATASkyTransfer' contest organized by Indiblogger in association with Tata Sky+ Transfer.

I listen to the waves sing

Snow, Love

(Image Source:

"I love it when it snows," said she.

"I love it when you talk of snow," said he.

And they played, hit each other with snowballs, giggled, hugged, kissed.

"Will you return?" she asked.

He stayed silent. She closed her eyes. He was gone.

Nearby, the snowman stood still, smiling.

His Doll House

he tried pulling out the drawers
but there were no damn keys
he ran towards the larder
where food was rotting for free

and there he hid
like a long lost kid
in streams of red
his heart would skip
as voices came closer
yet farther, still
he was scared of their laughter
breaking all his will

'cause he was a teen
who dressed like queen
and played with dolls
and danced in balls
trapped in dreams
and dust, and whim
the house that stood
on his table's rim
where he would sleep
once lights were dim
with a hope, and wish
his doll house, his bliss

he tried pulling out the drawers
but there were no damn keys
he ran towards the larder
where food was rotting for free

Embracing The Dark

(Image Soure:

the right to heal
to brush aside the scars
destined by fate
I lost them too far
the window from where
the sun once rose
now shredded and tattered
is shut and close

deserted and maimed
the hurricane left me blinded
I embrace the dark
after goodness had me defeated

Fenced Rows And Marshes

fenced rows
and marshes
the sunset grows
in lapses
the humming of the faraway chime
the winds here teach me
how to rhyme
nature paints a canvas new
in colour green, and reddish hue
the melody sleeps at the end of day
a new dawn awaits on this merry way

As My Love Calls Out To You

those seas I shall cross
in sunset of golden hues
the boat will kiss the shore
as my love calls out to you

miles will be traversed
with birds that fly on cue
time shall now be our slave
as my love calls out to you
