Mishika,
the sweet child next door
asked me today:
Uncle, why do you wear
only white and black
while you might look better
in a variety of colours…?

It has been ages
since I accepted
white and black
as part of my persona
with a reasonable grace
to live this life
with harmony and peace.

But how to satisfy
An eight-year-old kid’s
innocuous and innocent curiosity
without making it complex
that white keeps me
sober and serene
and black is good
in camouflaging well
dark emotions and pain!
