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)

If you have any thoughts share it in the comment section. I would love to hear and reply to all.

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!”

The Lost Moment of Being Good


24Apr - The Lost Moment of Being Good

The Lost Moment of Being Good

When you walk

Through a silver lining frame

To hide your good self

On a particular date,

*

You will be judged

For your heinous crime,

Which will be destined to ruin

Your present and future for the entire life!

*****

Everyone’s good! It’s the situational decision that makes them bad. Agreed?

The Furious Nature of Life


23Apr - The Furious Nature of Life

The Furious Nature of Life

Acknowledge that

There is a fire inside you.

Alarm your body

Prepare your mind, be on your toe,

The storm is coming.

*

The stagnant nature of your life

Isn’t going to help you

The process is excessively demeaning

And probably, conspired to fail you

But the indignant power you have

Harness it to dig for the entire truth

*

But it doesn’t mean

You disremember the joy

The love, the sweet candy, the friends,

The talk, the almost hypnotic memories, the ploy

Against the indifferent time

Yet, you can lose, win and fall, but be coy!

 

Did you try to fail today or did you fail to try?

The Odour of Love


22Apr - The Odour of Love

The Odour of Love

Hey,

Can we play the police game?

You, be the police,

Chase me down the lane,

I run to tap my friends

Ensuring they are safe,

You close your eyes deliberately

Wait for me to hold your hand.

*

In the ruin of the moment,

Can we see the cloud fooling rain?

The magnetism of your hysterical laugh

Has always faded my brain.

*

A line of soul, the feel of touch!

Now, the shameless distance will shorten.

You, be my breezy love,

Pull me up at the height in my amazement.

*

The world isn’t a boundary anymore,

But the sky does seem small and pale,

What happened to the sun?

Did you draw it during this mess?

Effective but not much of a distraction

When I have you, you have me

Isn’t that enough?

Love does feel simple and impossible. Ask yourself – Who is that person you want to spend your evening?
