Like a garland of flowers
Adorning the prince’s chest
A wish, to find mine way to yours
And there to forever rest

This burden of reserve, to lose
A desire, in your arms to fuse
To merge with your every breath
My life, dearest, I send, till death.

– An inspired and incomplete translation of Sirivennala’s Ra ra kumara from Govindu Anadarivadele

“Do you see them” the little one asks me
Wiping her tear stained eyes bravely
“The monsters aren’t real, my dear”
I reply, while at me and her, they leer.

How do I will her not to give in
How do I make her fight them and win
How do I ensure she’s better than what I’ve been
My little girl, who sees the same monsters I’ve once seen

Silent love

Silent love
Smouldering in the smoke spiralling
From flames of fire quenched, still a’ burning.

Silent love,
A river asleep, with her head resting
On eyes’ shores, while for a lifetime flowing

Silent love,
Strands of solitude, earnestly spinning
Wreaths of shadows, constantly weaving

Silent love,
With its velvet gaze, quietly listening
Invisible, while still a’ burning.

– An inspired translation of Gulzar’s Yeh Ishq Hai from Rangoon.

From you, as I move away
The threads from the knot we made
Wrench my heart, bidding me to stay

Sometimes sadly, sometimes gladly
I unravel them daily
To weave us into our story
Of Love, repeatedly

An inspired translation of Anvita Dutt’s ‘Sahiba‘ from Phillauri.

Adoring you from afar, shall I try to be content?
Or with a courage foreign to me,  inch closer bravely ?
Cheerfully oblivious of my heart’s torment
As by chance, you walk past, you smile at me graciously

The glances, unmet
The words, unspoken
Sting my heart and yet,
Hope, in it, awaken.
