Bharati Nayak


Biography of Bharati Nayak

Born in the year 1962, I hail from Odisha, an eastern state of India.I always consider myself wannabe poet, though I have already published two poetry collections - one in my native language Odia and the other one in English.I am not a student of literature, but writing is my hobby and passion.I was a regular contributor to my school magazines.I sincerely believe that pen is mightier than the sword.When I browse through poems I very often want to read the Biography of the poet.The biography, the background of the poet gives insight to understand his/her poem.The factors like gender, religion, schooling, family history, education and his culture etc get reflected in his writings.When I do not find a Bio in the Poet; s page, I get disappointed.On Poem Hunter many are writing in their pen name or pseudo names for various reasons.It poses difficulty for the reader to understand his writings.Like I wanted to read Bio of other poets, Other readers may also like to read my Bio.So I decided to submit on this page.
I am married and have 3 children.I have a Masters degree in Political Science from Utkal University, Bhubaneswar. My schooldays were spent in Cuttack, my parental home.
Poem Hunter has brought me closer to many kind and learned people around the world.I will always remain grateful to this amazing site and all friends across globe.
I truly feel myself a global citizen.Thanks to all readers, friends and commentators for your kind support in my poetic journey.

The Tree

The tree stands green
Under the scorching sun
Branches spread wide
Roots going deep
Thousands and thousands leaves
Swaying their little heads
Colourful flowers bloom
For the bees and butterflies they make room
Squirrels jump dance
