The One

The One:
I am not the seeker
Neither the one sought
Dreams present no more
The sole haven for the thought.

You are no more the promise of a better world
Nor do you exist as my better half
As there is nothing better that I ask for,
nothing better be offered on my behalf.

When dreams and thoughts merge into One,
When the one purpose of the universe is alive
in every step one takes; in every movement one makes,
When roles join hands to melt into One,

When every breath takes in the pain of eternity
and every act gives out the gift of immortality,
When the reality of evolution is the only tangible truth,
When beliefs stand vindicated in service of the One,

When the mind rises in an act of one embrace
With the munificent nature that stands as One
There is no one to love as there is no one left out,
In gratitude of one existence I become the One……….

I am a physiotherapist from Mumbai, India specialised in the field of Neurophysiotherapy. Working with children with various neuro-developmental disorders forms the mainstay of my job. I am currently employed as an Associate Professor of Physiotherapy, a profile that allows me a blend of clinical, teaching and research experience. I am trained in an Indian classical dance form Kathak a medium via which I experience the stories that inhabit the physical and psychological landscapes and are waiting to be told. Writing helps consolidate the experiences into a layered structure and offers me the evolving standpoints from where the journey can deftly proceed.
