‘Meri Maa Ki Beti’ : A Poetic Portrayal by Niharika Mishra

Published

Meri Maa ki Beti, Niharika Mishra, Poetry, Maa

It is said that God can’t be everywhere which is why he created a mother. Of the various types of love that one experiences in their life, almost nothing compares to that of a mother’s as it is unconditional, priceless and the biggest blessing of life. It can never be put in words, but can only be understood completely when one becomes a mother. There is something magical about motherhood that brings women closer to each other and makes us realize our mother’s love in its truest sense.

There are so many things that a mother does for her kids and family.From the very first pain of bringing her child into this world, to the innumerable sacrifices for her family, to being the first teacher of life and yet being the partner in all the mischiefs. “Meri Maa Ki Beti” brings to light these moments, in the most beautiful way possible. Through her poem, Niharika, takes us on a journey to our childhood, filled with beautiful memories of our mothers.

Niharika Mishra is a mother, a sleep-deprived impulsive writer who is often lost and found in a Bollywood style daydream. Check out her poem ‘Meri Maa Ki Beti’.

‘Call Center Ke Call Boy Ki Kahani’ by Rakesh Tiwari

Call Center Ke Call Boy Ki Kahani, Rakesh Tiwari, Tafreeh Peshkash, Poetry

Call-centre workers have it tough. Like retail staff, they are frontline cannon fodder. They have the task of dealing with people who are in the majority of cases lovely and reasonable but also sometimes disgruntled and short of patience. If one works for 40 hours a week, the last thing one wants to do is spend 20 minutes on the phone to a stranger discussing why their bill had gone up 30%. But they do it everyday.

Everyday they sit at their desks and answer to all our queries politely no matter what is happening in their personal lives. They have the ability to multitask and micromanage things at the same time.

‘Jawaab’ : A Poetic Awakening by Kajender Srivastava

Published

on

Kajender Srivastava, Jawaab, Poetry, Poem

The power of questions, is often undermined. We often don’t realise what raising a question can achieve. Great ideas start with a “how”. Revolutions begin with a “why”. Kajender Srivastava attempts at questioning the gross injustice happening right in front of us.

Belief in faith and hope, keeps us standing. But blind faith? God, the creator, the destroyer, the ever forgiving. How could he stand and watch his creation cull those that cry for his mercy? How can he withstand the crimes being committed in his name?

The poet strongly believe that god helps those who help themselves, which means, his creations, who he created in his light. The elected leaders of this so called free world, their inactivity, and their attempts at materialistic rehabilitation will not bring the silenced laughter of a million little children back.

So where does that leave us? It leaves us with an initiative. A question. What can we do? Ask yourselves, what can we do? We can open our homes, we can ask our leaders to let go of the inanimate concept of borders and welcome those who have lost it all.

Because we will always have this. The powers of hope, humanity, and questions.
