Poet's Notes about The Poem

Kolam is the drawings that are done on our door steps, using rice flour, every morning and evening. The rice flour becomes the food to ants.

December 14 to January 14 is considered as Markazhi, a cursed month according to our Calender and we do not do anything auspicious during this month.

During this month unmarried young girls are asked to wake up early morning to have their bath in the cold river water and then pray to Gods for the good spouse. Normally these girls visit the temples during brahma muhurtham, that is at 5 a.m.

    Thank you Madam for writing a poem that is rich with nostalgic beauty. I wonder whether these girls will ever find their good spouses from the midst of majority of these beasts now shattering the image of this country.... A good write with a variety of theme. (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
