Biography of leonard daranjo
Teach Communicative English in my personal capacity. I reach out to students of all bacgrounds. I help them to come to grips with their communication problems.
I believe that people should - in whatever way they can - try to make a positive difference in the lives of others. When one uses his/her talent to help others, the true meaning and beauty of life comes out.
I am also involved with Genpact - one of the leading BPOs - as a consultant. Here also I train job seekers. I try to bring them up to an acceptable level of communication competence in English after which they are provided jobs in Genpact.
I am an outdoor person. I am absolutely passionate about nature. I try to document everything I see in the natural world in the form of Poetry.
I love reading Eastern and Western Philosophy and Literature and appreciating art. I am also an avid Jazz enthusiast.
I love people who are humerous or the ones with a great sense of humour.
Listening to Jazz
Reading African Literature and Western Literature and Eastern and Western Philosophy
Delving into the English Language and devising new and innovative ways of teaching it to my students.

Night languishes On the crest of dawn

…..I ….. Spearing darkness An eye blinked flash
(1) Art Is An Octopus
Chiselled in stone; Pencilled in a diary; Splashed on a canvas; Organised in sound;
All Things Touched By Time
Out of the swamp of imagination Crawl images that lie Hibernating in subterfuge Awaiting entrapment
A Lamentation For The Earth
The chalice is dry Not a dropp in it The oceans are dense with oil The rivers are filled with chemicals
(1) A Fistful Of Future
Everyday is a new born babe Holding within its clenched fists
The Sea's Assignation
The sea kissed the clouds, and Like an impressionist’s brush, Smudged the horizon
Farewell My Dear Friend - A Warm And Lov...
On hearing of the death of sister’s pet cat The first thought that came to my mind Was that a friend like him I never shall find So loving, so genuine, so kind
Do Not Do Unto Others........
Who am I to make you sad If I cannot make you happy Who am I to take from you If I cannot give you in return
(1) Another Dawn - A Vignette
After a night of incessant rain, The dawn strolled in, Splintering the Eastern sky Into jagged streaks of light
A Quarter Past Paradise
The most precious thing to be had on this earth Is peace of mind and calmness of heart More precious than anything else You may ever find
Exercise In Alliteration
The perpendicular pyramids of perplexing thought
And a stupendous polarity of power
Will accrue in a creative apotheosis
Of mesmerising miasmas and preposterous perspectives
Where a conscientious concubine counted coconuts
In a catastrophic cradle of a crank civilisation
Where desperate denizens of disproportionate depravity
Detonated a device devastatingly destructive
That ripped through a ravine of ravenous reptiles
