I've always aspired to be a poet but career interests being away from this, this passion remained unaddressed and even forgotten till recently. Now that it has resurfaced, it's an enjoyable pastime - searching for right poem topic, then creating word strings to make verses and finally uploading a poem that pleases my mind and heart. At the end of a two- or three-hour exercise resulting in ... more »

    Dear Brian, thanks for your appreciation. I realize that I could have used a term better than too good which clearly wasnt that! But what I did mean to say was that that language you've used in your poems is indeed very good. Incidentally, my medium of instruction has been English and I'm more comfortable with this language than with my mother tounge. But I guess errors do creep in. I will separately send you a list of some of my favourite Tamil movie hits. You may be able to get DVDs with English subtitles. 'Annakili' is a tragedy in monochrome; a very touching movie in an Indian village setting. I thank you also for your appreciattion and for the high ratings you've given to my two poems. I'm a novice here so my language and use of phrases may still need improvements. - with regards, Paddy.

    To my fellow PH family of poets, here is a new poet worthy of your support. Only here since January of 2014 with 37 poems already and now 154 on the popularity scale. To Padmanabhan I say (in jest) Your English is too good, he said, That clearly indicates that you are foreign, For while others are instructed in their native language, English people aren't. I am something of a foreign film aficionado and would love to see a list of your favorite Tamil films if you would be so kind. I will certainly look for a DVD version of Annakili. I am a sucker for titles, and loving music as I do, The Master of Melody was the first poem I read, My Departed Brother, was the 2nd. I have given you a 10 on both. MDB is a fine tribute to your brother filled with honesty, regret and loss.
    I assure you I will come back for more. I feel sure we are destined for friendship. It is an honor to be the first to welcome you in this special way.

Best Poem of Padmanabhan Ananth

Oh, Nirbhaya!

Oh Nirbhaya, have we lost you in vain?
Was it you to blame to just be a woman?
That you didn't remain home past setting sun?

All you did was board a Delhi city bus
And then you'd to face six-n-half devils
That were evilly strolling for prey on streets

Why pick on you those evil marauders
To pierce you with their rotted organs
And use on you, gosh, even rusted tools!

They threw you on streets to simply shiver
You begged to passers-by for warmth-n-water
When help finally came, your life was on totter.

Reminds me of a drive on a state ...
