    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 ...

In Despair

What is the world coming to?
Though carrying weapons is taboo
Children are happy totting the gun,
Whether to settle scores or just for fun.

When did innocence get lost and things changed?
It some how seems shocking and strange.
Too much T V, films is the reason
Reason elders for this violence and aggression.
