A Deep, Dark Mind…


Hope is an insect. Flies around you. Can infect you. You can chase it. And not catch it. It promises fulfilment. Delivers disappointment. It keeps you alive. Eventually kills you. Stretches relationships. Promises good sex. Delivers no sex. It hides behind her gown. Beneath her undergarments. Inhabits the lazy mind. Promises heaven. Delivers hell. Hope is an insect.




Oblivion is a bad habit. No pressure. No compulsion. No confusion. Pleasant inertia. Oblivion or money. One of them is more important. Than the other. Need to give up one. For the other. I am unsure. I like oblivion. It is easy. It is a choice. I hate money. I need it. I cannot live without it. It is elusive. And I have to give up my oblivion. For money.

  1. thank you. for sharing. the pain. the joy. the mundane. the passion. the filth. the beauty. the madness . the simplicity. of being…

    I hope and wish that you will succeed in bringing to your cinema the honesty, truth and irony of your writings!!

    Be. the eternal. fool


  2. If being tall is being splendid,

    You loom large in your largesse.

    Rise high and bold. Covered in gleaming

    Gold and green, rock brown.

    Mighty and majestic, standing tall,

    You are the Himalayas! Rock strong,

    A blanket of silvered mist covers

    Your summits, your rocky life between.


  3. Then undulate with easy, wave like rhythms,

    Dance like the burning thunders of a jealous

    God come alive. Tower over the Tsangpo gorge,

    Drop, drop down in sheer delight.

    Falling down, down, until you shiver

    Garnished in multi costumed finery,

    Rendered raw, changing with the dark

    Rawness of the curious moon.

    Between the tall spear piercing the sky

    And the sheer drop, down into the river

    Rests a vastness. Human imagination floats

  4. Hi Hansal,

    This is Ajayramesh Iyer from Bengaluru.

    I saw your serial on Harshad Mehta. Mind-blowing to say the least! Fantastic research and beautiful direction! Did not budge one moment till I watched the entire serial. Loved it. Thanks!

    I wish that you make a serial on Dhirubhai Ambani. That man is such a genius! Most people don’t know much about him. The movie made on his life with Abhishek Bachan did not do the required justice to Dhirubhai.

    Would you please fulfill my wish?

    Wishing you good health!


    Ramesh (as I am generally called)

    I m a debutante writer, do you have a few minutes to listen to my subject, I know you are a towering personality, but still, i believe, being a director, you never leave to make connections with the public, new thoughts, and breaking rule of the circle. I have invested my precious time in writing those stories, and a little time of you may change your life or my life, waiting….Punit Mittal
