क्षण एक थांबण्याचा.....

त्या एका क्षणाला,
वारा वाहायचा थांबतो,
पानांची सळसळ थांबते,
झाडाखाली उतरलेला कावळा
कावरा बावरा होउन बघत राहतो.
उगीच दोन तीन काळे ढग
आकाशात रेंगाळत राहतात.
पाउस नाही पडत,
पण थोडं शहारून येतं.
मन उभ्या उभ्या हरवतं,
भूत - वर्तमानाचा गुंता होतो,
न सोडवावासा वाटणारा.
काही कळेनासं, काही कळू नए असं वाटतं.
मन आणि शरीर, दोघेही स्तब्ध होतात,
सगळ कसं शांत होतं, थांबतं.

ह्या सगळ्यांपासून अनभिज्ञ
डोळ्यांतलं पाणी तेवढं वाहत राहतं!

त्या एका क्षणाला.........

- भावीन

Parting lines (updated)

1. What (and why) boys think about their bikes is as unexplainable and complicated as girls!
Bigger or smaller, boys will be boys!

2. It's official!
Valentino Rossi will be riding for DUCATI corse faqctory racing MotoGP team from 2011.
This also means that this is his last year with his favourite Yamaha YZR M1, the bike he developed over last 7 years, and brought victories for the Yamaha team. The greenish yellow 46 on blue Yamaha will now be seen on red Ducati.

3. This is what the 9 time world champion Valentino Rossi said yesterday in a press release on his parting from Yamaha,
"Now the moment has come to look for new challenges; my work here at Yamaha is finished. Unfortunately even the most beautiful love stories finish, but they leave a lot of wonderful memories, like when my M1 and I kissed for the first time on the grass at Welkom, when she looked straight in my eyes and told me ‘I love you!"

Read the full press release here.
UPDATE: Reading between the lines of Valentino , what makes him much more than the best rider ever... what is more important than winning, to him?

TOUCH sensitive

when was the last time?
you dipped your fingers in a bottle of paint,
and left an almost alive trail on the white paper,
slowly feeling the dryness of paper
or may be of your finger!!

when was the last time?
you felt like biting into the chocolate-soft brick of clay you just made.
or almost licked the remains on your fingers!
and kept re-touching that still-wet vase infinitely,
just because you liked that touch so much!

when was the last time?
you tried cleaning that old antique brass bowl
with some dry coarse powder,
till it turned into a glossy yellow surface!
and smelled fascinating new!

when was the last time?
you made a bunglow of brand new playing cards,
with utmost careful breathing and your gentle hands,
or tried picking up the the glass jar broken into pieces
and learnt what 'careful' actually means!

when was the last time?
your touch gave some life to the material,
and brought a smile on your face,
and realised that sensitivity of your touch,
can do much more than the rectangle on your laptop!
