REALISATION

Like dried leaves
Picked up and hurled into the air
By a storm,
Pressure builds inside the head,
Words swirl
Looking for an outlet.
Alas, Outside, death lurks;
In friendly handshake
In human breath.
The words that would
normally every day
Find ears of friends
and accomplices,
Spent on advice
and pretence,
Find their road barred
By layers of cloth.
Too much has probably been said,
Too many opinions expressed,
Boasts of invincibility,
Of pride in human knowledge,
Now lie tattered and shredded.
Imprisoned thus in layers of cloth
Words lose garrulity.
And in the ensuing silence,
The mind works
Establishing a divine connect!

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.
