The First Night After Marriage
It was the extreme dark as no-moon night
Continuously drizzling from long hours
Load shading was active on its routine job
The jackals were howling in bamboo clusters.
I live in such a country
Where power is enjoyed by
Rapist, Smuggler, Evil, Devil
Politician and Murderer,
Teacher’s day is like an occasion and opportunity
To pay tribute and gratitude
To the teachers
for the continuous, selfless and precious efforts
I moved ahead about four decades
From my childhood love
I could not forget a single moment
And live like a loving dove.
In rural India, people say....
Guess the standard of a family
From it's washroom
I tackled many drunkards
Studied them, their drinks, consumption
And the effects of alcohol
In their body
