    Mamta Agarwal is indeed a poet of envious stature! A prolific writer with buoyant spirits, looking at Nature and life with the curiosity of a child and the introspection of a sage, her poems - a treat to the senses and sensibility! !

    Ms Agarwal's poem Controlling Anger Before It Controls You was exactly what I was looking for: something to remind me everyday and remain in the back of mind when a situation arises.

    I always come to read poems of this poet with much zeal. Because her style of expressions, look through deep inner, beautifull illustrations, and truth-bound travel I like.

    Her openness to art and beauty is praiseworthy indeed.

    Long live Mamtajee!

    Mamta,
    Finally, I found your One Night Stand. When you wrote me a comment - I misunderstood. I didn't realize you were referring to my poem The Morning After as similar to this piece. Yours is a beautiful and I'm flattered that you even think it's similar to mine. Bless your heart for saying that :)

    Mamta di, a fine poet, a reformer from heart,
    her poems stand apart on a fine element....
    she is a specialist in her own realm where
    she writes for a cause and her writes are insightful

Best Poem of Mamta Agarwal

! ! ! ! Celebrating Women's Day! ! ! ! !

When God sat down to make a woman
He gave her empathy love and compassion,
By the time he finished with her
He had no more left for the man.

He gave her the ability to be a mother
And nurture and take care of others.
Slowly, on reflecting, it dawned on her
She was being treated like a piece of furniture.

At first she resigned to her fate
Bore the indifference of her progeny and mate.
Slowly she realised she didn’t have to be a victim,
And didn’t have to be at the mercy or everyone’s whims.

She knew it was not going to be an easy battle to be ...

Life In A Metro

I live in an apartment on the first floor,
With my name engraved on a brass plate on the door.
Since I am most of the time alone,
The only time I see a soul
Is when I step on the terrace,
Above my garage.

I see some watchmen playing cards,
And maids walking their wards.
