Audio Poetry Jukebox: An Evening Full of Perspectives


Do hear my new recording of my old poetry “An Evening Full of Perspectives” written on April 15, 2017.

It describes a theatre evening when I, as a theatre artist with my colleagues, performed a theatre format called Mushaira Theatre. This was the evening conducted by Poetry Social Bengaluru in collaboration with my theatre group Yours Truly Theatre.

Mushaira Theatre is invented and developed in Yours Truly Theatre by Sumit Acharya, Nandini Rao and Ashish Bhuvaniya. The format encourages audiences to come up with their poetry (written by them or anything they loved). We asked the small story around that poem that we perform on the stage improptu. The only advancement this has that the actors (we call them Kalashayars) exchange dialogues in Shayaris which are created on the spot. The format is based on another theatre form Playback Theatre.

Do hear it and share you like it. Your Comments are always welcome.

See you in the next post!

Stupid Adam & Eve


30Apr- Stupid Adam & Eve

Stupid Adam & Eve

Adam and Eve

Went up the hill,

Loosen up their feet,

Lied down to chill;

*

Isolated from the world

To ignite the new relationship,

Work out on their problems

Dancing their heart out until they flipped;

*

They roll down to the ground.

Poor funny souls!

Want to be illogical,

And often laugh at each other’s faults!

*

They are mysterious not so grumpy.

Childish as they were before;

Now, who’s going to tell them

That they are in love?

Completing NaPoWriMo 2017 challenge with the 30th poem. It’s been a pleasure participating and even successfully completing the poetry month challenge four years straight in a row. I am sure that with this, I will get back enthusiasm and energy back for writing more and more, not just poetry but stories and even, a novel (ahh… a long time procrastinated dream)

Life: A Tied Game


29Apr - Life A Tied Game

Life: A Tied Game

In a tied game,

Ever wondered

Who’s winning

Or losing?

I,

For one,

Care no shit

But savour the tussle within!

The Charm of Her Presence


28Apr - The Charm of Her Presence

The Charm of Her Presence

Leave the stains of my blood,

You might want to get off,

Staring at him like that

Is going to cost you your nose;

*

Damn! She is beautiful.

And I missed what he blabbered,

Rage! Not recommended at this heated moment;

And here comes another punch like a hammer!

*

Had I gone blind?

His nose is bleeding while he stammers!

Oh, her magnificent eye’s so appreciative of you!

Hard to believe but now I kiss her.

A Human Side of the Devil


27Apr - A Human Side of The Devil

A Human Side of The Devil

A dexterous and an intelligent man,
Defamation defines him,
Purely sinister in his thoughts,
Yet, so innocent the world sees him;

*

He often takes out the grudge
So furiously and blatantly,
The evil of everyone’s mind he possessed,
And demolition charms his personality;

*

The people think of him as an animal,
Snubbed his best of the human,
Abused him for what he is,
But he exaggeratedly laughs at everyone;

*

Wait, wait, wait – for the beloved God
Kill that funny retard before a recess
Like the bolster in a fire,
Watch him burn to death and show your prowess!

Sleepless


Funny Cartoon Sheep Jumping Through The Fence

Sleepless

The missed chance of

Another peaceful night

To sleep under the blanket

And imbibe;

But

I chose to ride

For the illustrated silence

And a rendezvous with my secret side!

Helena Mccarthy has Attitude Problem


25Apr - Helena Mccarthy has an Attitude Problem

Helena Mccarthy has an Attitude Problem

Miss Helena Mccarthy,

A poster lady

In her sweet 30s,

Often shows up in her velvety gown

At her front door in the morning 7:30

*

Miss Helena Mccarthy,

A princess alike beauty,

Looks up for something

And gets disappointed to find nothing

In the entire territory

*

Miss Helena Mccarthy,

Seemingly

A hapless victim of this society,

May want to have a reason to say ‘Hi’

But gives up as they think she’s too sexy

*

Miss Helena Mccarthy,

Who’s taught to learn four languages

Only to communicate with her diary,

Dresses up every evening for an imaginary man

Who can at least say, “Dear Ms. Mccarthy!”
