Kites Are Flying In Cuttack Sky

Rating: 5.0
Festival of friends has come in this day,
In happiness wonderful tribute we pay.
Thousand years old city has filled cheer,
In every mind today we do fill love dear.

Many kinds of kites, children have made
Colourful shining in silver art is well paid.
Laid well foundation we have really seen,
Kite is heart shaped new beat does lean.

Keen interest has grown among old men,
They offer sweets and do share love then.
When we get ready sure we do not know,
Cheerful moments in Cuttack see rainbow.

Cuttack sky is filled with shyness of kites,
Beautiful queens they are flying in rights.
Night has gone far light is filled by a day,
Feel billions of days gather here to pay.

They do think to visit this city again more
Being guests they knock every man's door.
Making friendship amazing tribute all pay,
Kites are flying in Cuttack sky in this day.

This time you present the great festivities in Katak city, mind you, the second largest city in the eastern Indian state of Odisha. As usual in most Indian cities, when there are festivities, kites will go in the air always, it is so celebrative indeed. Pintu, you bring a Holy Ode to this thousand years old famous city of Odisha, Katak. I prefer to use the name of Katak, it sounds more natural in my foreign ears. this is no rebelling of me, never! I feel the celebrations in this poem through your wonderful descriptive scenes, Pintu. Oriental cities are like that, their citizens make friendships eventhough they are living in one of the largest cities in the eastern Indian state of Odisha. I am comparing it with the westeuropean countries. Suddenly I remember Rudyard Kipling´s famous Quote: East is east and west is west and never the twain shall meet....To my opinion, this quote is true obsolete quote, since RK lived in an entire different era than we, his literature was written from a colonnial point of view...ah let me not walk away from your abundant celebrations. Most fascinating read, Pintu, my grand compliments. 15 Sep 2015 by Sylvia Frances Chan | Reply Ramin Ara I enjoyed it Pintu. 15 Sep 2015 by Ramin Ara | Reply Pauline Russell The flow and choice of words was wonderful. The imagery was breath taking! 17 Sep 2015 by Pauline Russell | Reply Gary Lee as uplifting as the wind the lifts the kite...i love how you reversed the first two rhymes and used them as the last two rhymes...this is poetry that i can learn from, and i looked up Cuttack, and found out that it was the second largest city in Odisha...a very beautiful city too...thanks for the great rhymes and education 17 Sep 2015 by Gary Lee | Reply Angel mia LOVE Totally into kites, just today I was looking at some at the store tfs wonderful ink xoxoxo xoxoxo xoxoxo blessings darling 18 Sep 2015 by Angel mia LOVE | Reply G.

Yes each place has a special thing, own particularity that could help so many people learn more about each other and tie such wonderful friendships. If I could travel, Cuttac would certainly be one of the places I would want to go first.
