Thank you!

I walked into a red bricked building With quivering hands and a heart pounding fast. The corners of my lush pink lips drooped, Streams of tears rolled down my plump cheeks. I clinged onto mom's dupatta, Clasped dad's office tie tighter. I was not willing to leave my shell, Wanted to be tucked in my... Continue Reading →

“The World Has Changed”

"The world has changed," they say. "Nothing is as fine as ever before." "It's ugly and loathsome to live in a world like this." "The world has changed." Well, no. It's not the world that has changed, It's still the same. The sun used to rise in the east; it still does. There used to... Continue Reading →

The Red Leopard

Amidst pieces of wood, A Leopard took birth; Surrounded by rocks That lay on the earth In the colour of blood Small, but bright, Lay the Leopard And gave out light Gradually, but soon, The wood melted away. She got bigger and redder And left behind ashes of grey. Slowly and steadily, she grew more... Continue Reading →

The Light With Wings

As I stood in the dark, I saw dots of gold, Dancing in the air, In the night so cold. They were just so little, Like marbles of light; The light with wings Surrounded me on every side. They were like luminous commas, Hung in the air with invisible strings. Others may call them fireflies,... Continue Reading →

The Prettiest Princess

It was a beautiful night, I was walking by the stream. The beautiful white moon Winked at me and beamed. The stars in the dark sky Twinkled at their best. The night provided a pleasing vista, Full of charm and zest. But the prettiest sight Still awaited me, A maiden in a red gown With... Continue Reading →

Who Took Me Home?

It was a dark, stormy night, Not a single body in sight. Amidst the chilly, foggy air, I was all alone over there. All alone, in the middle of the road, Something was lit up, was it a lamp post? Or the moon? Or a star? Or the headlights of a car? The cold, icy... Continue Reading →

It’s Time

It's time, dear humans, To undo the ill; There are wounds to clean And gaps to fill. It's time, with earth, We fairly dealt, Animals are dying, Glaciers do melt. It's time to care for The earth that fostered us. It's we who destroyed her And created this fuss. It's time to clear the air... Continue Reading →

An Indian Lady

An Indian lady, So beautiful she is, Proudly she walks, Dressed in herself. A bindi Isn't merely a punctum; It's an exemplar of her decency And the purity of her thoughts. A dupatta Isn't just a lace on her chest; It's her pride and self respect That she carries everywhere. A sari Isn't just a... Continue Reading →

But She’s Still A Human

Yes, it is a baby girl, Not an auspicious son. Though you may be sad, But she's still a human. You say she is unlucky, And she is not strong. Well, having huge breasts, Is it really wrong? Or giving birth to a baby? Or bleeding for five days? Or looking really pretty? Or working... Continue Reading →

In The Dead Of The Night

Silent was the moment, The moon sent forth light And the stars gleamed overhead; The darkness seemed so bright! The owls hooted at a distance, The wind whispered to the trees, 'Oh let me sing you a melody, While the people sleep with ease.' Thus she started singing, And the leaves danced onto her beats,...
