Alankar(Decor) -211 - Poem by Indira Renganathan

At The Wedding(Triveni)

The Triveni is a relatively new form introduced by Gulzar, poet and Oscar award winning lyricist
who won for best original song in Slum Dog Millionaire. The form is a popular 3 line verse mostly written in Urdu or Hindi.
It uses the sher of the ghazal and adds a third line with a totally different perspective.
It is a sort of Indian haiku without the syllable count.

The Triveni is:
a poem in 3 lines.
written in lines of equal length.
unrhymed
written with a sher or complete closed couplet, a poem in itself.
And concluded with single line which is an observation of the first 2 lines from a different perspective.

At The Wedding

The wedding jubilance was moving on extremely spirited exultation
Bride's friend and bride groom's friend were the prime attraction
A sprout of new love was felt budding in every one's apprehension
