The love-hate relationship between Gareth Bale and Real Madrid fans is well-documented. Bale has openly expressed his qualms about the reception he used to have from Bernabeu faithfuls. The fans whistled him and mock him when he struggled on the pitch and that dented his confidence even more. However, during the recent events of the Champions League and La Liga victory celebrations recently, a warm reception from the fans pleasantly surprised him. As he is set to leave…
She still crosses his mind,
There are still avenues and highways
named after her in his brain,
But they now lead to a dead end.
His heart still has a cabin etched after her,
It still skips a beat at the thought of her,
But then, it is followed by a sharp ache
that makes her blur.
The irises still dilate at her glance,
The eyes still awe and shine when they see her,
But the lids have now learned to close them at her sight.
ठूलो मानिने सहर
देशको राजधानी काठमाडौँ
जहाँ व्यस्तताले खाइसकेको छ समय
समयले खाइ सकेको छ फुर्सद
जहाँ निर्जीव वस्तु खुब व्य्स्त छन
जहाँ निर्जीव जस्तै बनेकछन जीवहरु पनि
जहाँ पशुपति ठिङ्ग उभिएको छ
उभिएर मात्रै पनि खुब व्यस्त भएको छ
जहाँ ठिङ्ग उभिएका स्व्यम्बु र बौद्ध पनि व्यस्त छन
जहाँ बाग्मती औधी व्यस्त छ
फोहोरहरु बोकेर बग्नलाइ
People gravitate to her as a reflex-
She’s quite a crowd-pleaser.
She makes friends from strangers,
Changes adversary to well-wisher.
She likes to hug people as if
They have never been hugged before.
She listens to same old stories like
She’s never listened to them before.
She wears her heart on her sleeves-
And pours it without thinking twice.
She lives her life not to regret-
Always prepared to pay the price.
She shares her table with strangers
Even her plate and stories with pleasure
Leaves an impression on everyone
