On The Page Of Time


Dushyashan too wrote his name
on the page of time, snatching
the robes from Dropodi!
She cried, she shrieked,
but they laughed, they
insulted her as they
thought themselves the
writer of their own lot!
In The Ramayana we read
how Ravana tried to dishonor
Sita and met his doom.
Whoever once humiliated
women could not escape
their eternal fall.
On the page of time
they immortalized their
names as the demon,
like the Lankesh Ravana!

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
