Poetry

An intriguing development for me as thoughts formed words in a sudden and overwhelming phase of outpouring. Over a period of a few months, I have written and continue on this journey of short pieces, covering various aspects, from relationships, politics, my observations, tributes and life in general.

I particularly love the sound of the various Indian and hybrid languages that I have been fortunate to hear. I like the way some words so easily capture the vast gamut of human emotions and truly help to tell descriptive stories. Presented here are some of these works. Enjoy.

I sincerely regret the spelling errors that you may find in the original compositions on the left of each piece. Please do write to me with your suggestions.
