Udaya Pant Poems
Politicians across the World Criticised national heralds They keep their cool and calm In any place or situation
Maha Sati* She grew up In a happy family
Benefit of Doubt
Benefit of Doubt We two always were friends Seldom did we have dispute
Your simile is Incredibly infectious It resembles Something contagious
Valentine I missed you Away from you
The twinkle visible in her eye That I saw and misunderstood Feeling I thought was mutual Soon the other way that stood
At times, I realize People having lost Their sensitivities And become stones
In your over-ambition To follow and practice Twenty first century Institutions and systems
The moments That we spent together Is not just a page Of passed history
Your accusation Shook and shattered me I was waiting for
I feel like laughing Looking at the sorrow On your own face While lighting my pyre
DEATH OF GANDHI
Yes friends! I am Gandhi far out of your reach I do not want to come down and beseech Earlier also I never tried anything to preach I had only wanted myself to follow and teach!
Do and Don’t
Whenever you want Whatever you want to do They say, “Don’t”.
I was flabbergasted At her straightforwardness Stretching her arms at me
One more day has passed
This is the new day beginning
The same are the surrounding
Similar is dawn to the morning
The sun shines at the same way
The chirping of birds continues
Familiar are the noon, afternoon
