Thump ! Thump ! Thump ! It started with the pounding De-husking the skin from the rice With a heavy stick as her device Separating the two with a palm leaf sieve She wiped the summer's sweat off her face with her sari blouse sleeve She places the grains of rice between the 2 wheels While on her haunches she sits and kneels i watched her as she started to roll the stones Her body frail ...Read More
Book Review: Musings of a wanderer
Shreya Chatterjee is one of the very few poets I know and read who have managed to paint a picture with their words; her work is carefully and colorfully written. A good poem is one that jolts your mind into a graphic reel, where your forced to imagine, feel and see every action described in the poem and in turn creates a memory associated with it. “heard her bangles clink , Her anklets jingle...Read More

Purviews from work.
Cityscapes portray their outlines on my window architecturally divine, telling a story of a creator they owe Above the buildings... the birds move on their migratory flight in a sequence so synchronised, never afraid of the height Below the buildings.. a man reads his morning paper while the older ones burn on the floor eliminating the news that was , keeping hi...Read More
