The Confrontation And The Turnaround
The loud calls and joyous babble of children float to my room with the cool easterlies. It's seven in the evening and the teenagers have just gathered for their daily round of football. A few young ones are cycling around the society on their gaily colored ...

DEVI
Crraashh! Khatak! Raina woke up with a start...it's still night, her fogged mind told her. But the room was lit up with a soot covered lantern. She squinted at the source of light through eyes still half shut. 'What on earth is the old woman searching for a...

MAY
April singed So I had asked, May, Will you scorch? May says I donno! May may be hot, May may be cool. It may delight us with breeze, pleasant and gentle. May may appal us with s torms and hail. May is bewildered, May is shocked. Nature is furious, Nature is...

ज़ुबानें
ज़ुबानें हैं, यूँ ही चलती हैं, चलती ही जाती हैं, बेखटके, बेधड़क, बेरोकटोक। लम्बी, टेढ़ी, कड़वी, तीखी, मीठी, क़िस्म क़िस्म की ज़ुबानें, कुछ सुनी कुछ अनसुनी, कुछ आँखों की, ज़ुबानें। मगर ये कोई बहती धार नहीं कि मैली ना हों। कीचड़ से लथपथ, ज़हर में डूबी, पर मीठी चाशनी से...

Elegy To Hope
On the bed of a sombre leaden sky, an elegy is written in sheets of downpour and hail to the hopes of a devout farmer. Swollen clouds, wrapped in a shroud perform a funeral march. God is stark blind to his dreams.

THE LITTLE GODDESS
Here's a poem which I had written during the recent Navratra festival. Do share your thoughts about this composition. A flower garland adorned her slender neck, New red bangles glimmered in the fairy lights. She was dressed in a new silk saree, A shiny red ...

THE LAST YELLOW LEAF
The last yellow leaf Clings to the blushing tree Flush with its nascent red leaves, Tiny, shining fresh and smiling proudly At the wondrous eyes Enchanted by the warm aura of Spring. Thin lips snigger At the ugly duckling- The solitary yellow leaf. They are...

POETRY
Poetry is a dew drop glimmering on a tiny twig many fail to see. Poetry is the sprouting of a seed buried in every heart but not nurtured by every pen. Poetry is a four-cornered mirror reflecting the depths of a soulful heart. Poetry is the lotus that bloom...
