All is Quiet-During Covid times

To roost in the city,
silence has come;
from the hills and
far-flung hamlets,
From forests and
within the ocean’s depths,
From the distant horizon
And earth’s edges,
From the vast desert stretches,
From cold polar continents
From ruins in history’s pages.
Like a maiden
bedecked in her finest,
She comes;
Dress the colour of azure of the sky
Spotted with the white of the clouds,
Luxuriant in the colours of the sun,
Fragrant with the smell of spring’s flowers,
The arrival greeted by
the cacophony of birds.
Silence has come to the city
And fills every street,
Every mall,
Every factory,
Every store.
At night, it dances with the traffic lights
At every cross-road!
It seeps into the human heart
And overwhelms human arrogance!

Born in Jamalpur, near Munger, Bihar in the year 1968, my childhood was spent in fun and frolic amongst the beautiful scenic landscape of the small town of Ranchi. An engineer by qualification I have been working in the field of minerals and metallurgy for more than twenty years. Writing and cooking are passions that I pursue during my spare time. Another thing that I am passionate about is our very own country, India. As they say, a lifetime is probably not enough to explore the different corners of India and savour its sights, sound and taste. So i like to read and travel as much as I can in an effort to get to know about our great Country. Currently based in Kolkata, I can be reached at gdutta17@gmail.com.
