‘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.

Sach

June Jordan once said, “Poetry is a political act because it involves telling the truth.” And poetry about truth is an even stronger political act as it emotes the unsaid aspects of life bluntly. Today, we bring you one such thought-provoking poetry by Kunal Jhawar.

Kunal is an engineer by profession and a poet by passion. He is writing poems for over a decade now and mainly writes about love and life. One of his poems has also been featured in Rahul Dravid’s biography ” Behind the wall”.

In the backdrop of the recent events in our country, he observes the subtle aspect of life – truth, which has taken different forms today. In the world of fake and paid news, it becomes difficult to identify the actual truth, as the truth we see through the lens of media is not always real. In this KalArt presentation, Kunal through his poem “Sach”, reiterates the thought that we should always look for the real truth.

Presenting to you this thought-provoking poetry by Kunal Jhawar.

Tuheena Raj, a young poet and writer, takes us through her inspiring journey in her Tedx Talk.

Published

Tuheena Raj

Many at times we’re faced with two equally alluring choices in life and we’re forced to choose one of them, like Robert Frost says in his poem ‘The Road not Taken’- “Two roads diverged in a yellow wood/And sorry I could not travel both…” However, Tuheena Raj, a young poet and writer encourages her readers that it is not necessary to choose one passion, if one stays positive and determined, something good can come by being “the jack of all”.

The founder of WordsofWorth, a famous blog catering to modern day poetry, Tuheena claims that she has always been an active participant in all fields possible, be it drama, academics, dance, music or poetry; she confidently participated in everything she could get her hands on and learned from her diverse experiences. Graduating from Shri Ram College of Commerce, University of Delhi, Tuheena wanted to become a banker, however a part of her also wanted to become a writer. She made use of the digital space available to her and started with her blog on Instagram as well as Facebook and an year or so later, was appreciated for her work by acclaimed writers of India. Later she also got a job as a banker and continued to manage both of her interests. Her words inspired many young minds and she was thrilled by the idea of her words changing the life of people, for good.

Here are some of her thoughtful words which take us down the lanes of wisdom.

She thus strongly disagrees with the English proverb,” jack of all and master of none”. Her experiences have taught her the contrary and she inspires her readers to believe in themselves and to know that with hard-work and an optimistic outlook, anything is possible.

A Poetic Unravelling Of The Mysteries Of Life

Painting the various facets of life through poetic performances “Sukoon ki Talash Mai” by Pallavi Mahajan and “Zindagi” by Sambhav Jha

Published

on

Life Poetry

The greatest philosophers and thinkers have tried to unravel the mystery of life. Many works in literature aim at defining life but during the same process, we realize that life does not have one definition. The meaning it embodies differs for all, and the poems in this segment describe life and its many attributes.

Pallavi Mahajan’s “Sukoon ki Talash Mai” talks about the search for contentment and relief in one’s life. With short and crisp lines, she describes a man’s pursuit of contentment and how he achieves it. The journey of finding satisfaction through materialistic achievements and possessions leaves the man disappointed. Eventually, he discovers the true essence of contentment that it is not external but purely internal. Written in Hindi, the poem touches an important subject and throws light on its attainment.

“Zindagi” a poem on life, written by Sambhav Jha and Aarohi Singh tries to describe life through various day to day encounters. According to the writers, life encompasses everything between our first breath and our last smile- the love we feel, the challenges we face, sleepless nights, exciting nights, our achievements and our downfalls. The poem gives an important message of living life to the fullest and reminds the listeners of the inevitability of death.

It is always a wonderful experience to see life from the eyes of others. Click on the links below to discover new perspectives and outlooks. Who knows it may surprise you!

Ishq Dosti Ek Sath: A Rakesh Tiwari’s Take On Love And Friendship

In this latest poetic performance “Ishq Dosti Ek Sath”, Rakesh Tiwari explains the complex and mysterious relationship between love and friendship.

Published

on

Rakesh Tiwari

If we dig deep into the philosophy of human existence, we will find that love and friendship are the essence of humanity. These forces drive us, govern our actions, and we seek them all our lives. However, can love and friendship move hand in hand? Rakesh Tiwari’s “Ishq Dosti Ek Sath” beautifully strives to explain the complex and mysterious relationship between Love and Friendship. Both Love and Friendship are personified in the poem and their contrasting qualities are skillfully explained by the poet through a small tale.

The poem begins with a very interesting notion, when one fine day, Love and Friendship decide to cease their distances, patching their long historical gulfs and move together. The tale describes their journey through poetic lines and their experiences together. Love, however, overpowers friendship and their existence together comes to an end. As all things are destined to cease, so do all these incidents of Love and Friendship. Finally, one day, their paths cross again and Love asks Friendship why it never stays where Love decides to reside. Friendship smiles and replies saying that Love’s legacy begins where Friendship’s ends; Love is wild and fierce and reckless, Friendship, on the other hand, is rational and not so carefree. Friendship goes on to assure love that it will not be forgotten, that it existed before Love and it would continue to exist after Love. Hence from that day onwards, Love and Friendship take to their own paths and never meet again.

This mesmerizing piece goes onto conclude that love and friendship are like two sides of a coin, both continue to exist but, never together. Diving deep into the philosophies of Love and Friendship, the poet gives us an insight into the complexities of human relationships and the enigmatic relationship between the two social pillars of humanity.
