Send off to Song (Mourn to Melody)

The Ragam that ruled the generation, come to stop The charanam that meant for veneration, term to halt The pallavi that hailed for reverence, put to shut But only physically But only worldly Not actually from the hearts of music lovers Not really from the songs of musical  souls   And also not from the tunes of music instruments Yet And forever Sounds in the fans dance shots And forever  Rhymes in the fans melody beats…

Your Way

              However different the people around you However difficult the situation you are in However challenging the path you have chosen If you want to move forward You should have your own way That never compromises That never complains That never fears That never surrenders That always be unique © Anjana Lahuri@2020

Skill is also a beauty

Poor me I started beautifying me I tried prettifying me I learned embellishing me I stuck on to the obsession of decorating me As I thought  it is the important requirement of all As I thought It is the sought out thing by all I forgot  I could dance and mesmerise all I forgot I could sing and tranquilise all I forgot I could paint and hypnotise all I forgot I could write and influence…

Crushed Love

I subsided under an orthodox cruelty I bent down to the family prejudices  I shutdown to the society’s stage-acts I compromised for everyone else’s happiness but not mine I am haunted by perverted honour killings I am jinxed by superstitious witch-crafts I may be able to live normally  Like nothing ever as beautiful as you happened in my life  I may pretend solitude  Like any suffering as you occurred in my life  I can be…

Cutey naughty Squirrel Flittering up and down the tree Flaunting coily- twirly tail this and that Hushed on the courtyard to pluck a cereal spread on the floor Sat on the floor, Blinked and winked the twinkle eyes Robbed and grabbed the grain nicely Jumped from the ground to a secret place Ate some Stashed some under the ground Proudly felt it saved for future It kept on doing the hiding job actively As it…

Thank you

 Embrace entirely or a gentle tapping boldly    Shake the hand swiftly or twist it fondly       Smile by lips or a slight sigh with eyes          Enact through actions or express through tears             Lots of words or a short-sweet sentence                  Loads of gifts or a symbol of reminiscence  A token of appreciation:    A Thanksgiving      A gesture of gratitude         A receipt of love rendered            A bow of owe       For the services they rendered for you         For the love…

My prayers#5(To A New Place)

You ought to leave the people who loved  You ought to leave the ones who served You ought to leave the place that hosted It’s uniqueness you shared Your memories with them Your gratitude for them Your foot-prints on it Your loving about it  Your heart weighs with the same fact; Your thoughts succumb with the same draft; That you may not look back:  And see the place that was once part of your life;…

Happy Teachers Day

There is some story spread around  In different versions in different conclusions  I just caught something in an immature version as I am not a philosopher, neither a guru Who teaches inspiring versions to the knowledge seekers After creation of Vishnu, to preserve After creation of Shiva, to destroy After creation of Lakshmi, to the wealth After creation of Saraswathi, to the knowledge He sighed a relief when he got parents to take care of…
