Poem By Ratnakar Rout

Refresh your memory and recall
The admirable moment
We both first met
Like the meeting of a paramour and his lady love
You captivated me with the
Beauty of your spouse
But I was dragged and engulfed
In a strange feeling
And lost in the solitude
Gradually I became unsocial
And got engrossed in searching for you.
My quest for you is endless
Thou know not my predicament
You arrive or depart in the long run
For time immemorial
Waiting though very painful goes on.

Is It The Way

A Jawan deployed to curb insurgency was abducted
and later on found brutally strangulated by the insurgents
The mutilated body was seen deserted in the desolate jungle path
He was the lone earning member of a poor farmer's family

Angel Of Peace

They were bought from the market
Like cattle, dogs, horses, cats
And other domesticated animals
But unlike them they were not the pets

Two rupees debt of a shop owner
Her husband was brutally strangled to death
After a brief altercation with the shop keeper

Enchanted Woman

The septuagenarian woman was seen from the den
Peeping outside through the dilapidated fence
It could not escape the eye of the curious journalist
Who immediately proceeded to the shelter of the old lady?

Distraught Widow

He met an accident
While crossing the road to attend a family
Function in his uncle’s house situated
On the other side of the road only at a stone-throwing distance


Now a day every body tells
You are looking pale
A shadow of grief has shaken you
What is the reason of sorrow?
