Those Television Channels - Poem by Indira Renganathan

Play Poem Video

Every night
Prayers lull me to sleep
Infusing a watchful Lord
In my hope over evil
But a flip-flop switch of a snooze
Zaps the television
Through the flickering channels
Only to mean awake the whole world
Doing its blah-blah-blah
However
Of the sleeping Lord
To remind me at 5 a.m
Pristinely they invoke Him
With'Suprabhatham'

    Those Televisions channels rarely sleeps and rarely fails to accumulate the dust from the whole world to keep you awake. I remember, how the life would often be without them.
