    I strongly condemn about this poem, i dont know why the people are writing about others caste or religion, when they are having a lesser vision. The initial line, ' They call themselves as saaliyar' itself is a problem, i think. In my point of view, nobody knows who created castes and nobody calls themselves as this caste or that caste. And the way he narrates the caste, it seems they are uneducated. But he should mind, nearly 75% of this caste are educated(including myself) , some are working in abroad.My Request is please stop writing poems which hurts castes or religion or individuals.

tree in the yard.
Being the burning type,
he burned properly
at the cremation

as before, easily
and at both ends,
left his eye coins
in the ashes that didn't
look one bit different,
several spinal discs, rough,
some burned to coal, for sons

to pick gingerly
and throw as the priest
said, facing...

The Disaster

The disaster

no prior note given.

Unannounced came an earthquake,
just a jerk,
a sinister shake,
one ominous tilt,
