I can renounce all worldly pleasures
To strengthen our bond
Your love, care and concern are my treasures
Which precipitate a coating around
'Solitude'-the word despicable
devoid of bond,
I am mesmerized by your charm and beauty

Mother said, ' She is superb, we'll make her a doctor'
Father said, ' Maths is her forte, why not an engineer? '
At the age of twenty five
She discovered her skill
Started writing poetries
With tremendous zeal.
