I'm basically a technocrat, served an international oil Co. and now I'm retd.
Since long I love reading poems of different poets in different genre. I enjoy reading poems and short stories.Truly, very recently I started writing. Because, I found here I can express my feelings & views silently with a freedom.

Amitava Sur Poems
A Drop On A Lotus Leaf
A water bead on lotus leaf - Shimmering with a glow But up to that time only As long is on the leaf.
Beggar: =========================== Oh' my dear, the passers by, I beg you all to listen a while.
Woman… Woman… woman A woman is by far an Excellency A woman is like a Baobao tree A woman can grow to any length
====================== Pool of blood, already being soaked in earth's soil Innumerable Skulls are scattered around,
=================== Gone are those lovely colorful days …….. Leaving only some sweet remembrance.
================== Though I volunteered to be truth abiding, Truth has not endeared me yet.
With a sudden gush of air, the mirror, hanging on the wall Was broken into hundreds of pieces. Collecting all of them and uniting in a frame
In A Misty Autumn Night.
Cherishing your presence Being so benevolent, Your every footstep Is immensely engraved
They all left the park
Jesus was with Mohammed in a park near the lake Buddha, Confucius and Mahabir Jain Were sitting on another bench, Eating some ground nuts, peeling off their shells.
From The Garden Of Eden
Like a tree she took care of me To blossom with colors. She provided all vigor and fodder Blossoming me as a flower.
An Angel In The Night
In the misty moon -lit night an angel did alight Peeped me through the window- With my beloved holding tight. She was smiling at me with a gleam in her face
O' My Loving Jesus
A holy heart with kindness and wisdom Was boldly addressing them. To think right, to do the right And to know themselves.
Away From The Caged City Life
Flying away to a far distant place From this noisy and fast city life. I am now resting under the peaceful and cool shadow
Do work Earn money Eat Bring up your children.

A Drop On A Lotus Leaf
A water bead on lotus leaf -
Shimmering with a glow
But up to that time only
As long is on the leaf.
With a little jerk or a shake
It rolls down and ends.
This life is like that only
As a drop on a lotus leaf
Priceless is our human life
But very mortal and short lived.
With a little quiver or a tweak
It shatters and then breaks.
Very short lived and uncertain
Like the dew on the grass tips.
To extract the beauty of life
So long you are alive -
Love all with love and peace -
Love flower bird and ...
