  Most of the things
You do…you do
Because you
Want to do?
Or do you do
Because if you
Don’t do…
Society will
Ostracize you?


(pertaining to our social rituals and customs which sometimes overrides our identity, our individuality and our freedom of choice – when we keep wondering….aisa karey ya aisa na karey, toh log kya kahenge…)

Thank You, Madathil Ji, for your marvellous review :-)

I've tried my hand at Hindi Poetry and published 148 couplets on this Site.

You'll see it in Hinglish as PH doesn't offer the facility for using Hindi Fonts.

You can savour some of my audio renditions here:

A compilation of 14 Sher-O-Shayeri written and recited by me.

Comment Your footnote is real poetry, Aparnaji! Why don't you try your hand at Hindi poetry? Your poem touches a subtle truth rather marvellously.
