Alankar(Decor) -214 - Poem by Indira Renganathan


Tripadi in the Bengali Region is considered one line in three parts even though it is almost always written in three lines.
So each tercet is simply a full sentence in 26 or 20 syllables broken into lines.

The Tripadi is:
stanzaic, almost always in tercets. A poem can have any number of tercets.
syllabic,8-8-10 syllables per line and sometimes 6-6-8 syllables per line.
rhymed, aax bbx


A challenge to walk on a rope
Though a fall takes away all hope
Is to best learn how to fall before start
