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 ...

Read the full of Oh, Nirbhaya!

Hyde Park Bistro

In a narrow alley close to the Park
One winter's evening, during a walk
I hesitantly stepped in for a simple treat
All alone at break from a business meet

The bistro was bright lit - naked bulbs
There was loud music - strings, melodies
An assortment of drinks - soft to not-so
Brews, distills and labels - local and afar

[Hata Bildir]
