    Bharati Ma'am is the only great poetess in this PH brotherhood whom I secretly call APA, a sweet respectful call for one's own elder sister in my family tradition. Since the days of my interactions in PH, I have always felt a magnetism in her words that finally drove me to read her biography one day. I had always wanted to know about her without hurting her pride as well as privacy.
    Had I not gone through her bio page I would always be guessing that my Apa might have a nice family, somewhere settled abroad. Today I went through all the details I wanted and that too through her pen.
    One day I would like to write something literarily about her.
    These lines are the first lines that come from within at the first meet.
    Thank you Ma'am once again.

    Bharati,

    I read a poem of yours first, then this bio. You express two things in it I resonate with.

    One, I too feel disappointment when there is no bio.

    Two, I too like to think of myself aa a global citizen. In the Judeo-Christian tradition I identify with, we are encouraged to pray not selfishly with the pronoun I, but for we and us. And this, I think, is what God intends, the God who loves the world, who loves us all.

    Thank you for taking the risk of telling something about yourself.

    With you in our shared humanity,

    Glen Kappy

    What an amazing poetess, I just read... a poem for my daughter....I was totally captivated and pulled into the poem as if I was there at the moment of writing, wow! ! ! The ending of the poem is one of the most perfect endings to a poem I have ever read, bravo my friend...bravo! ! ! !

    Bharati's poetic touch is sure and her ability to stir thoughtful reflection and emotions is unsurpassed. What beautiful imagery she has placed before us, what lovely encouragement she has offered us. What gentle, soothing pieces of wisdom reside in the hearts of so many of her poems. How can we not enjoy poetry straight from the gentle, soothing, wise soul of our Bharati. When I finished the first poem of hers that I ever read, I said this has got to be the best of show! ! Then I read Poem #2, and I said oh! this must be best of show- it is absolutely setting me out in the rain. Then I read poem #3, and saw the peace and quiet of a cow swishing its tail in the shade of a tree and I sighed happily and said, ahhhhhhh this is the best of show! Poem #4 flirted with me with its sunbeams and rainbows and then Poem #5 nailed me with its twilight.loveliness! Pick a poem, any poem, and enjoy the heart and mind shimmering beneath the lines of a Bharati poem.

    You are a great Lyrical poet and your empathy with nature warms our hearts. As Fabrizio says there is a wisdom in your work and your influence is deeply moving.

    Bharati is a nature poet……….she is able to love. In so many of her poems this ability to love shines forth. It is a joy to read such poems.
    She likes to smile and express the inner joy through her smile.
    She loves angels and believes that holy angels surround the soul and they are always watching a good soul which remains in contact with the Almighty. It is her faith that the angels are moving around the universe inspiring human beings and they have their own reasons to do that which a human mind may not grasp fully.
    She wants to spread kindness all around where she lives. She wants to be a river ever flowing ……. But content with the thought I am not a river, I cannot be a river but I am a fistful of sand and satisfied with that because she is earthbound placing her feet on the loving mother earth.
    In her letter to Appu, we experience what sort of a loving heart she has.
    “I am overwhelmed by the fragrance, the colour and the softness of a flower and from the flowers her mind reaches the creator God in deep and intense meditation. She loves Breeze, sunlight, and believes more than everything in all - transcending love.
    She is determined……. “I have to reach my goals come what may”
    She has hope and aspirations.

    A meditation on the lotus fragrance brings her to her Lord Krishna, and likes to be benevolent and kind and good and loving like the Lord. Oh come back Krishna, your devotee is waiting for you. Your Leelas are my joys.
    “ I scripted your name on each every cell of mine. The beats of my heart dances on hearing your approaching steps”. I love you my Lord, to your distance is not a distance.
    My sari, makes me conscious of my own vanity and I feel guilty.
    Open sky and million stars…. A new world you have given me my God.
    “I seek thee in me
    As I know
    I can not hold the rainbow
    Detaching myself from the crowd
    I become one with you. Happiness”

    Very rarely do we find such beautiful poetry.

  • Fabrizio Frosini Fabrizio Frosini (4/24/2016 5:21:00 AM)

    In Italian:
    Bharati è una bella Signora e Poetessa di squisita sensibilità, che padroneggia l'arte della poesia con le sue sapienti capacità, così da formulare splendidamente, attraverso la parola, le sue raffinate emozioni.

    In English:
    Bharati is a fair Lady and Poetess of exquisite sensibility,
    who commands the art of Poetry through her skilful ability, so as to express beautifully, through the Word, her refined emotions.

Best Poem of Bharati Nayak

I Speak Not

I speak not
As I feel
Speaking is not essential
Silence speaks for itself
Even eyes speak
Speak thousand words my quivering lips
Unsaid words travel million miles
Sun speaks
Moon speaks
Speaks the thunderstorm
When hearts meet
Mouth says no words
Only the closeness knows
How louder is the heart
When it beats
Beating the loudness of sea-roars.
