This Slam Poem Tries To Make Sense Of The Age-Old Question, What Is Love?

Published

on

Love is a beautiful feeling that everyone feels at some point in life.

For decades and centuries, poets and writers, through their work have been describing this whirlwind of an emotion and people listen to their interpretation and discover the intricacies of their own hearts.

Unless you’ve felt that kind of devotion and a raging passion for another person, that you have no control over, you can never know what love feels like.

But how would you describe love?

Love is deep and vast. It is the feelings that one shares with another person, and the huge barriers that you cross together. It’s the happiness you get while spending with the person you love and yet, love is indescribable.

Well, everyone has their own definition of love and each one is beautiful.

Recently, Yahya Bootwala, a boy from the city of dreams, Mumbai described what love is and what it isn’t through his poetry. The poetry is bound to give you goosebumps while you listen to this beautiful poetry.

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

Published

on

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’.



This Mother’s Day, let us roam in the lanes of memories, holding our mothers hands, yet again.

‘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.

“Why be biased to complexions?” Aranya Johar Questions the Society

Published

on

Aranya Johar

 

Aranya Johar’s latest spoken-word performance, titled A Brown Girl’s Guide to Beauty, has taken the internet by a storm. The 18-year-old young and bold poet, has been a popular name in poetry circles for a while now after her poetic performance titled ‘A Brown Girl’s Guide to Gender’, had gone viral.

India is a nation that is obsessed with skin colour. In almost every Indian household, young girls and boys are taught to believe that fair or light skin is better. It’s a problem that has been discussed at large, and many men and women have spoken up about how this skin color bias affected them growing up.

Aranya Johar

Aranya Johar

In Aranya’s latest poem titled “A Brown Girl’s Guide to Beauty” she talks about how beauty brands and the people around humiliated her for being brown.

She emphasized on how young girls and boys have become conscious to their body image and colour primarily because magazines have images of glossy and flawless men and women on their covers.

She rounds up her poem by explaining that before we expect people to love us for who we are and how we look, we have to love ourselves.

Aranya Johar

Aranya Johar

The poem is important at a time when we’re teaching kids to embrace their identities and not be ashamed of themselves. Young parents could take a leaf out of her poem, so that they don’t end up body shaming their kids like our parents and scores of uncles and aunties did to us.
