Hardik Vaidya

(26 Dec 1969, I won't be dead till you know I am alive. / Mahuva, Gujarat, India.)

Survival of youth


At 2 Pm, when the sun is right,
Right because he burns bright.
It's humid as always,
To sweat is sweetness.
On queens necklace,
On Marine Drive,
On the Worli Sea face,
I saw human doves face to face,
Pecking beaks, afraid to meet lips,
But all have come,
Burning tires
Some on 2 wheelers
Some in 4 wheelers
I would use the word rubber
Most of India would shudder
Glad the youth burns even now
The embers of fire glow despite all denounce
If the fire in youth goes dead
The culture of tomorrow will get spiked
Like the books of yore
The Sanskrit who no one writes.

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
