LEGACY

Do you know with what lightness we ignited our world? At first, we learnt to wonder from streams of smoke, then, the predicament of conscience from ants, and then, the melodrama of love from flowers, even the coordinates of rituals from rocks, Which fashioned the preamble of society from fishes. Armed with this array of impulses, we, learnt, uneasily, To live with each other, with songs and dance to gel A newfound togetherness, Fearful that like licks of fire that vapourise into the night, We will be forgotten. While we...

Bald Afternoons

  The afternoon purrs on this verandah Stinking of drugs and old desires They slip behind shrubs, Pebbles and the stiff air - where A theatre of half-lights emerge, Spectacularly startling at first, And then terrifying with clauses on either side Nobody but the cat and I, Her stomach round as the margins of my thumb, Departing from there, paws, arms and legs, And a face decorated with oblong shaped yawns. She moves in the yellow coat of the sun Filling the bald afternoon with a Few creaking breaths. Her...

Stupidity with a pinch of selflessness

In many instances, despite dire circumstances Have embraced selflessness in direct contravention to all logic; Have sacrificed as many before; Borne many a misfortunate in a way that some may describe as leaning more towards stupidity than naive, As have been taken for a ride in the highway of fools for umpteenth times, where even fools wisen up. Forgiven even for being literally abandoned and left out in the lurch, at the mercy of starvation. How long should indignation be endured? How long should the heart alone lead the way?...

Death of Megha

Ron’e Dutta Megha stood at the door, looking through the keyhole and screaming from time to time that they were going to kill her, while I sat at my table reading Hardy's 'Far From the Maddening Crowd'. Megha hadn't had left my room for last two days and all she did during those two days was screaming after every few minutes that they were going to kill her. She didn't allow me to leave the room too. I heard a noise, and as I looked down from my window to...

Something

There is something about a woman, That many will not know. Something about the pain she endures. How can someone love so much? So much, the moon is jealous. Men can protect too, they say, But there is something about a woman Who protects and prevent danger From the storms of anger. Little does the fishes in the sea know, Few stars in the sky may only reckon, There is something about a woman Whose prayers never leave the heart. Men can provide too, they say, But there is something...

THE TEENY KINGDOM

O’er the hills and valleys, There spreads a lush green meadow, Where a colorful wings spreads in rallies, Dancing and swaying lively under the yellow. The mother endowed her with beauty, With a blissful air that splashes the green, Movin’ a solitary traveler with a yippee, Making the day a new queen. Throughout the land of the hunters, The beauty Echoes it’s pains and sorrows, Emanating from the men’s blunder, The scenic beauty turns pale on the morrow. Pray for her peaceful kingdom, Life in the meadow has become futile....

IF I COULD

I may not win the heart of  millions But if I could win yours I'll be the happiest man alive I'll celebrate life now and forever I may not see you every single day But if I ever get a chance to see you I'd not let it go in vain For I know the worth of waiting I may not be the star you see daily at night But someday and somewhere when you're all alone I'll lit up myself to make sure that you are guided I'll be...

What Feminism means to me

True feminism has always strived to bring about equality among genders. The main goal of feminism has not been that of making women superior but to be a voice to speak about equal rights. The roots of feminism can be traced back to as early as 1410 when French writer Christine de Pizan through her book "The Book of the City of Ladies" brought the role of women to the limelight by presenting them as equally valuable members in the society. This was followed by a number of other writers...
