    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.

lost long ago among
other things lost long ago;

lame wandering cows from nowhere
have been known to be tethered,
given a name, encouraged


to get pregnant in the broad daylight
of the street under the elders'
supervision, the girls hiding

behind windows with holes in them.

Unread library books
usually mature in two ...

The Mamsapuram Saga

The Mamsaapuram Saga….

Far off from my home,
is spotted Mamsaapuram village.

secluded, hidden beside palm groves.
Unheard unvisited, unseen
by curious tourists.
A spot you need to see,
