Dead Roses and Dead Soul

Dead Roses and Dead Soul No one saw his major loss

Every morning 
walking up to miles
he collects roses
with the hope
he can give them to her one day Every afternoon
forgetting disappointments
he collects hope
with the dream 
she will be with him one day Even by the end of the day,
those fading roses on his desk
and depressed soul within him,
both continue to live
with a desire of reconciliation someday Times changed
but she didn’t. His soul continues to breathe
he sprays water to roses
hoping neither of them dies
hoping they both live for one more day
where they can hope for one more. She never came back
she decided she won’t. Roses withered and died
his soul grieved and died.
He buried roses and his soul
with no hope of a further journey
with no desire for tomorrow. All saw dead roses
being sorry for its loss
but the dead soul within him
no one cared to search
and remained invisible forever. Suraj Ghimire 2020 This poem was first posted on

And I thought Exams were over!

Before few days of that day

Few days before that day, I was sitting in common staff room of teachers, checking answer paper of internal examination. Somewhere I smiled looking at funny questions while very few gave me happiness when any part of answer paper got full marks. Those were examination of my students where I was not supposed to study anything. Yeah, there were no need of thinking hard and skipping sleeping time. Between these days, I had written my thesis, I completed my masters, and also had joined job

That Day

I was preparing questions paper for the semester exam in my newly joined college in Mumbai. Teaching was my passion and I joined this profession not just to teach mathematics but to change the overall life style of students. These are the long term plans, but first I needed to get settled. Whatever be, i need not need to study for examination again, till I decide to join PHD which is my ultimate dream. Making questions paper were though indeed. A teacher need to balance all the things with the mind very few will be able to get full marks and difficult level either shouldn't be troubling students. Whatever be, for the fact I am no longer a student, I was relaxed because I thought exams were over!

Few days after that day!
So many problems started coming by! And life didn't had to give the grade in form of numbers, but through rewards and failures will be tortured by pain and frustrations. Hurdles in job, family problem, sickness of parents and hectic schedule, they all started giving me tough time. And in common sense they were the real exams of life. They started measuring my capability, they checked my passions, yet door for success were farther than I could think. So many problems, at a time! Oh my LORD, I could have never imagined coming them at once, without any date-sheets and without any prior notice. Still Life had to go and I kept going concluding Exams were not over!

As usual, I qualified. May be not with distinctions, but with average marks that was satisfactory. But what mattered was I learnt things. Those moments gave me experience and I matured in some or other way (This is what I think). I got to see who were my real friends and what could they do for me. Just like of examination which used to upgrade us in higher standard, this moment upgraded my confidence. May be many more examinations coming, that too without any prior notice and anything can happen, still I am ready.

Will come back Soon.
Love you and miss you people
