RABINDRANATH TAGORE

Tagore! You are our poet, our identity, Our leader, our mentor, To whom we return At dark nights and in shining days.   Tagore! You  are a torch-bearer, A cool shade to trammeled millions.   Wo/man you celebrate And we are your avowed followers   Our land you inherit And make us tall Before the eyes of the world.   Thousand miles of woes and wounds You walk alone with calm and poise, And we wonder how!   You are a symbol of protest Against unreason, superstitions, Bordered minds, narrowed walls Of caste, creed, religion, language And we love you

Praise for my poem "Elderly Men Two"

"A finely honed observational piece recording the minutiae of everyday life. Rendered with the author’s customary poetic aplomb suffused with a Borges like quality of the mythic."
