Touch || Poetry

Your fingers play piano on my skin

While my soul sings

To every note played at ur tips

Bringing my heart a feeling of closeness

To my hearth

Giving flames that light

Every inch it owns

Your touch calling me home

Making me crave the world

While our flames begin to burn

Ash disolving every dose of agony

Risen to crossovers and turnovers

No matter what , I am still here

To the last

Let there be change;like a tag

But you and me here is what that lasts

Binary stars ✨ || Poetry

Everytime that I see you

I am mesmerized by the sight

That I will always wish for you

You are the knight

That has me thinking

To be Mrs Right

All through my nights

You’re the moon to my darkness

Everyday you might not shine upon me

But I know you will always be

A part of me

Even when there would be gaps

Between our paths

We will always shine bright

Like the binary stars

To every heaven in the sky

Binary star formation

Wrath upon the world ||Poetry

A broken weapon, full of grief

Of no use to this world

Without an purpose or a soul goal

So I must leave to a place

Where id be of some use

Once again a weapon wielded

With a motive or to share a news

To a world worth saving

From the wrath of its own

No man to be at its dispose

Making me it’s shield that be it’s only protection

Bringing in all its foes to its knees

Creating an epitome full of life and hope

Growing from the bloodshed

From the weapon at its need

Beauty as a shield || Poetry

Personality as unpredictable like my curls falling over my face

Every sway of my hip it changes its ways

Winds come moving it in all directions it craves

Yet it moves with its own grace

Bringing every stroke of wind blow away in shame

At the end of the day still covering my face

Hiding all my emotions reflected in these eyes

That are more over a prize

To seekers hidden in disguise

Small town girl || Poetry

Once upon a time ago

A girl stayed in a small home town

Who made everyone sway,

Along with music as her bae.

Everytime she played,

She made each one cry in joy

As they held a glass,

And sat in the bar

From evening to dawn,

Dancing to the beats of her songs

While one shot, two shot , three shot goes down

The sun decended below

Leaving the sky all alone,

Like it was once before.

A burgundy sedan pulled over

Right outside the glass door,

To the bar,she goes.

Waiting behind the wheel ,

Her passage to a world, out of her own .

Aachi’s tales from the past ~ Story

As children I often loved to sleep on the lap of my aachi and watch tatta enact as aachi narrated stories she has once heard from the lips of her parents . Aachi was not as great as an ancient minstrel but as she recited every story it made my ears perk up with curiosity and my eyes twinkle with delight . Every story bringing me pride and respect about my country and our diverse culture. From which many were about our revolutionaries and freedom fighters . Most of my history lessons were already taught or better woven into my fragile mind at a very young age through words sung and enacted aachi and tatta.

One such classic tale I remember very well told by my aachi while we had our evening snacks and coffee as usual at four in the noon , after i came back from school .Was about a revolutionary young lad from  Chennimalai in Madras Presidency. Born on to a small family, Kumaraswamy Mudaliar or known as Tirupur . Raised by a family whose occupation was handloom weaving, young Kumaraswamy had to drop out of school by class 5. His family couldn’t afford his education, and he had to contribute to the income by joining the family profession.

When he was merely 19 years old, he gave in to his family’s wishes and got married. During this time, he continued working as an assistant in the spinning mill.

While the independence movement was gaining momentum in the country, Kumaran a vigorous youth with boiling blood of the youth running through his veins that wanted change , too found himself influenced. Inspired by Gandhi JI’s principles and ideals, Kumaran began to participate in the demonstrations announced by Bapu. He was one among the young participating revolutionaries, but he made his mark. He was fondly called Tirupur Kumaran .

His family, however, began to be concerned about his growing commitment to his nation. They would visit him frequently, urging him not to get involved in the movement as it could be a cause of danger to his life. They would even approach his workplace and would tell his colleagues to discourage him.

But Kumaran took no heed to the discouraging advice. Instead, he was an active member in the Indian Freedom movement and soon started “Desa Bandhu Youth Association”.

This consisted of young minds in and around Tamil Nadu, willing to fight for our nation’s freedom. They conducted various protest marches against the British all over Tamil Nadu. They inspired a lot of people, especially the youth.

In 1932, when Gandhi ji led a demonstration in Bombay.

The British decided to lock up the leader. There were riots and protests about this all over the country, including a patriotic march by Thyagi P S Sundaram in Tirupur. The protests had people carrying out the national flag, which was banned at the time, in honor as well as in revolt.

One of the participants holding the flag was Kumaran. When the British started their lathi charges against the protestors, Kumaran didn’t leave the premises. Irrespective of being thrashed and beaten by the British hard till he fell against the warmth of our Mother land . While the British went hard on the protesters , Kumaran was caught in the turmoil with our National Flag in hand . The young man didn’t let our flag come anywhere near the ground even though he was being beaten till he no longer could take it any more. Kumaran fell unconscious, and the fears of his family came true, as life ebbed out of him. He was later found on the street, still clutching the Indian flag above the ground even as his soul left his mundane body , he stayed preserving its dignity. Kumaran was only 27 when he lost his life. He may not have played a major part in the country’s independence, his national pride, patriotic fervor and selfless commitment garner credit. A martyr, Tirupur Kumaran is remembered in Tamil Nadu by the epithet ‘Kodi Katha Kumaran’–The Kumaran who saved the flag. We salute this brave soldier who lost his life for our freedom at an age when many of us don’t pay heed to anyone except ourselves. Tirupur Kumaran gave up his life for our Mother land .

A commemorative stamp was issued by India post  on his 100th birth anniversary.  The Tirupur Kumaran Memorial was constructed in Kumaran Salai near the Railway Station in Tirupur in his memory which is often used as a focal point for public demonstrations for every citizen to remember this noble soul and his love for our country. I shall always remember him . He has set an example to every youngster that no one is to small or weak to bring change , it just takes faith . If you believe in something you will find a way to execute it no matter what comes in your path .

We have had numerous revolutionaries who played an important role in their own little way and we must always be thankful their sacrifices no matter what age , caste or creed they belong to .Yet another great soul I remember being told of not just by Aachi but Amma too .

Everyone knows about the Grand Old man of India Dadabhai Naoroji but not many know who is the Grand Old Man of South India . Another such an unique and inspiring story was of an Indian lawyer ,jurist and freedom fighter Sir Subbier Subramania Iyer. Who was popularly known as ” The Great Old Man of South India ” .

People of character do the right thing , even if no one else does , not because they think it will change the world but because they refuse to be changed by the world .

~ MICHAEL JOSEPHSON

This saying surely fits our Sir S Subramania Iyer.

There are millions of person’s out there in this wide country who firmly believe that the cause of the Home Rule was a righteous cause worthy of all the devotion . But if in June 1917 , a leader so universally referred as Sir S Subramania Aiyer had not come forward to be the standard bearer of swaraj it is hard to say that the cause would have been to the day all inspiring and moving national force that it undoubtedly was during the National Movement in India those days . His father  was the legal agent of the Raja of Ramnad’s zamindari, but died when Subramania Iyer was barely two years old. He had his early education at the Madurai.

As his mother was not willing to send him to Madras for a higher education, Subramania Iyer decided to join the administrative service. He served as a clerk in the Deputy Collector’s Office, Madurai. While working in the Collector’s Office, he studied privately for the Pleader’s Examination and stood first among the successful candidates.

Though unable to secure a ‘Sanad’ to practice, he was appointed the Public Prosecutor, when the Criminal Penal Code came into force, in 1862. Desiring to practice as a lawyer, he studied privately for the Matriculation Examination and passed the same in 1865, followed by the First Arts (F.A.) examination in 1866. Two years later, in 1868, he passed the B.L. examination standing first among all successful candidates. He served as an apprentice under J. C. Mill, Barrister-at-Law, and thus qualified himself to practice as a Vakil.

He practised as a Vakil at Madurai from 1869 to 1885. He had a very lucrative practice and appeared in some important cases, the most notable among them being the Ramnad Zamindar’s Case and the Meenakshi Temple Funds Misappropriation Case.

Subramania Iyer married a middle-class Brahmin lady but she died in 1884. His wife’s death was a turning point in his life. From that time onwards, he turned his attention to religion and philosophy. He came into contact with Colonel Olcott, founder of the Theosophical Society, and himself became a Thesophist. He served as the Vice President of the Theosophical Society for a number of years. Subramania Iyer later on acknowledged that Theosophy made him a more staunch Hindu than before. Subramania Iyer used to read many English periodicals and books. Among his favourite English periodicals were the Saturday Review and the Fortnightly Review. He studied seriously Herbert Spencer’s ‘Sociology’, Draper’s ‘Conflict of Science’, Huxley’s ‘Lay Sermons’, Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ and ‘Hamlet’ and Bacon’s ‘Essays’.

His interest in the scholarly aspects of law led to his residence, the Beach House on the Marina at Mylapore, being used for the “Saturday Club” that met at 11 a. m. every week, between 1888 and 1891, with all leading members of the Madras Bar participating, and cases being critically analysed. At one of these meetings it was decided to start ‘The Madras Law Journal’, which was inspired by the then recently established periodicals the ‘Law Quarterly Review’, started by Sir Frederick Pollock in England in 1885 and ‘The Harvard Law Review’ established by the Harvard Law School Association in 1887.

While at Madurai, he earned reputation as a public worker. He was appointed a Municipal Commissioner of Madurai and a member of the Local Board. He also served as the Vice Chairman of the Madura Municipality. He was associated with the Municipality until his departure for Madras in 1885. He was also elected as a member of the Devasthanam Committee of the Meenakshi Temple at Madurai.

When the Prince of Wales visited Madras in 1875, Subramania Iyer in his capacity as the Vice-Chairman of the Municipality, presented an ‘Address of Welcome’ on behalf of the people of Madura. The Government awarded a Certificate of Merit to Subramania Iyer on 1 st January 1877 as a mark of their appreciation of his services to the public, on the occasion of Lord Lytton’s Durbar at Delhi.

He gave evidence before the Famine Commission when it visited Madurai in 1877, pleading for the necessity of protecting the tenants from arbitrary eviction by the landlords.

The Hon. S. Subramanya Iyer was the first non-official member of the legislative council whom the public gladly recognised as a fair representative of themselves, and were willing to leave their side of the question to be represented by him, so far of course, as one individual member could represent it. It will have to be remembered that his appointment was not, as in the case of some of his colleagues and predecessors, owing to their silks and satins or to the favours of the Secretariat; he owed his appointment to the high public estimation that he so deservedly enjoyed.

Subramania Iyer was nominated in 1884 as a member of the Legislative Council by the Government of Madras. He left a creditable record as a non-official member of the Council even though the Act did not permit non-official members to play a very useful role. Largely due to his initiative, an Act was passed providing compensation for tenants’ improvement in Malabar. Nominated for a second time, Subramania Iyer made his association with that body as useful as possible under the system of Legislative Councils existing at that time.

Soon after his experience in the Council Sir Subramanya Aiyar was one of those who assisted at the birth of the Indian National Congress at Bombay in the Christmas week of 1885 under the presidency of W. C. Bannerjee supported by Dadabhai Naoroji and Hume.

When he shifted to Madras in 1885, Subramania Iyer was already reputed as a learned lawyer with a lucrative practice. He rose to fame in Madras within a short time. Recognising his merit, the Government appointed him as Government Pleader in 1888 .

As Government Pleader, he appeared in two most sensational cases-the famous Nageswara Iyer Forgery Case and the Tirupati Mahant Case. He used to appear in the most important cases opposed on the other side by one or the other of the two equally famous and reputed lawyers of the time- V. Bashyam Iyengar and Eardley Norton.

As one of the founding members of the Indian National Congress, he led the Madras delegation to its first session at Bombay, in December 1885.

 It was in this spirit that was manifested in Sir Subramanya Aiyar when he made his speech in the first session of the National Congress and it is this spirit that pervades the clarion call of his to his countrymen after a further experience of thirty years. The substance of that speech in his own words deserves to be reproduced here.

In seconding a resolution, moved by the late Mr. Telang, Mr. Subramanya Iyer said:

“Though my connection with the Madras Legislative council has not been quite as long; as Mr. Telang’s in Bombay—I have been only a year in it—I think I may fairly claim to have had sufficient experience of its working to enable me to form an opinion as to their utility. I should not fail to admit, however, that the actual working of these councils is enveloped in somewhat of a mystery and to one outside it, it is a puzzle how it is that the non-official members are so little able to do good of any kind.

It was not till I myself became a member of the Madras Legislative Council that I saw how unjustly our friends in the council were censured in the majority of instances and what little influence they possessed in the council either for good or for evil. With the best intentions in the world, I may assure you, gentlemen, they find themselves in the wrong place, and so long as the present constitution of these Councils remains unchanged it is idle to expect that these non-official members will prove of any great use to the country… If one carefully noted the successive laws that are enacted by these Councils, one would plainly see that the functions of these Councils are limited to registering the decrees of the executive Government and stamp them with legislative sanction… Every suggestion that I made was received with great consideration so long as it did not trench on the principle already determined upon by the government. So far as that goes, I must do the Government the justice to say that they are not only anxious to hear non-official opinion, but they also try to adopt it as far as possible, consistent with the principle of the measure. The drawback then as I just now pointed out, is that the principles of the measures that are introduced into the Councils are previously determined by the Government, behind the back of the Legislative Councils as it were, and the difficulty of the non-official members consists in their not being able to modify them in any manner.”

In the Council, Subramanya Aiyar addressed himself to a measure of practical importance and placed on the statute book an Act for securing compensation according to market value for tenants* improvements in Malabar. Mr. Subramanya Aiyar’s solid contribution on behalf of Malabar tenants will ever remain a monument testifying to his religious devotion to the interests of the poor as against the claims of the rich and the well-to-do.

He was appointed to act as Government Pleader in 1888 and there also while he made a great reputation for efficiency and trustworthiness, he kept himself clear of the least suspicion of improving his chances by entertaining any kind of executive bias, or by adopting a course of refined sycophancy, or any kind of conduct unworthy of public disclosure. In those early days of the Congress especially between 1887 and 1895 when he was raised to the Bench permanently, he was in closest contact with the Hindu and its stalwart conductors Messrs. G. Subramanya Iyer and M. Viraraghavachariar, and with the Mahajana Sabha, which was the premier political association in the Presidency. Yet, he enjoyed the confidence of the Government in no stinted measure. The Government knew that his advice would be sincere and honest, and the public knew that it would be patriotic and honorable and would stand the test of public knowledge. In this respect, of not losing the confidence of one party for gaining the confidence of the other, among men of distinction in India his is one of the five names that would be universally accepted, namely, Dadabhai Naoroji, M. G. Banade, Pherozesha Mehta and Gandhi. Men like Tilak and Lajput Rai have been of course beyond the pale of Executive confidence. Other distinguished men in spite of their meritorious service in one direction or another fell into a thermometer which shewed a double reading, if not uniformly, at critical times at any rate. This distinguishing feature in Sir Subramanya Iyer’s character is well brought out in the Editorial comment of the Hindu of those days when in 1891 Mr. Subramaniem was first appointed to act as a judge of the High Court in place of Sir T, Muthusawmy Iyer

He was close to Sir Arthur Lawley, whom he is held to have substantially influenced and assisted in his administration of the Madras Presidency, in a private capacity.

As Chairman of the Reception Committee, he welcomed the delegates to the 29th session of the Indian National Congress held at Madras in 1914. He presided over a public meeting at Madras in 1915 organised to welcome Mr. M. K. Gandhi just then returned from South Africa. Welcoming Mr. Gandhi, he suggested the lines on which national work in India should proceed:

“We want the soul-force which Mr. Gandhi is trying to work up. Soul-force consists in a man being prepared to undergo any physical or mental suffering, taking the precaution that he will not lay a single finger to inflict physical force upon the other side. It was that soul-force that was manifested by the South African Indians and it is the same force that should be developed in this country.”

Subramania Iyer was appointed as a Judge of the Madras High Court in January 1895. He succeeded Sir T. Muthuswami Iyer who held that position with great distinction. In an Editorial, The Hindu expressed the hope that it may be Mr. Subramania Iyer’s good fortune during the time he may hold the high office to be instrumental in furthering so far as it lies in the sphere of a High Court Judge the cause of Hindu social advancement.”

He used to attend sessions of the Congress until he became a Judge of the High Court and contributed in no small measure to the strengthening of the Congress’s organization in the Madras Presidency.

During his tenure as a Judge of the High Court, he delivered several judgements which considerably improved the status of women in society. He presided over the insolvency court which investigated into the crash of a Madras Bank known as Arbuthnot and Co. He acted as the Chief Justice of the Madras High Court in 1899, 1903 and 1996.

Later on as a Judge of the High Court he conferred a judicial charter of security of holding on the Zemindari raiyyat which was made subsequently the main principle of a legal enactment during the Governorship of Lord Ampthill—one of the best Governors Madras has had. Mr. Subramanya Iyer’s services in this connection were acknowledged by Mr. G. S. Forbes the member in charge of the Madras Estates Land Bill of 1905. Adverting to the status of the Zemindari tenant the Hon. Mr. Forbes said:—”I do not know whether it is really necessary at this time of the day to enter upon any critical examination of the status of the Zemindar and the ryot, seeing that the whole question has been so lucidly discussed and the rights inherent in the status of both so clearly laid down in recent years in well known judgments by the High Court under the able guidance of those very distinguished Judges, Sir Muthusawmy Aiyer and Sir Subramanya Aiyer. These Judgments lay down in effect that qua the public cultivable land of the estate the Zemindar is not a landlord in the sense of the English landlord and tenant, nor the ryot a tenant, but the former is an assignee of the Government land revenue and that the latter possess the rights of occupancy indefeasible so long as he pays the. Zemindar’s due. Nothing has strengthened the hands of the Government in prosecuting this legislation so much as the expositions of the law which these judges have from time to time given forth on the questions which are fundamental in this bill, and if this bill passes, it is a deep debt of gratitude that the agricultural population of this presidency will owe to the memory of Sir Muthuswamy Aiyar and to the labours of Sir Subramanya Aiyer.” Lord Ampthill as President of the Council put the matter in the tersest manner possible by stating in his speech— “I have heard it said that the ryot of Southern India will never know how much he owes to Justice Sir Subramanya Aiyer for having declared that “the common law of Madras gives every ryot an occupancy right irrespective of the period of his holding.” It is this opinion which has been upheld in repeated declarations of Government which we wish to focuss and stereotype.”

It should be made clear in this place that Mr. Subramanya Aiyar’s fearless advocacy of the principle of occupancy right irrespective of the period of holding, which he entertained so strongly in favour of the Zemin,dari ryot was not confined to his benefit only. On the other hand Sir Subratnaniem declared himself in favour of the same principle in regard to the ryotwari holder so far back as 1886. In seconding a proposition moved by Mr. D. E. Wacha drawing attention to the increasing poverty of the country, Mr. Subramanya Aiyar said:—”I believe the history of the ryotwari administration has led to the conclusion that it is better to have a system of Zemindari administration with all its faults than the ryotwari system. It may be said that the Zemindars, in some cases, screw out every farthing that they can from their tenants; but the Zemindars as we have seen, can be reached by a Tenancy Act whereas in the presidency of Madras, it is impossible to control by any Tenancy Act the exactions of the Revenue authorities. I should like to see a Government servant on our side of India who is prepared to admit that the right of enhancement ought to be defined and limited by Legislative enactment as against the Government.” Since then, he has never missed an opportunity to declare in the most unmistakable terms possible that without some kind of permanent ryotwari settlement, the condition of agriculturists in Southern India could never he improved.

In taking the risk of popular displeasure, he has been no less courageous. In the evidence that he volunteered to give in the case brought against Mrs. Besant in 1912 he did not mind the popular verdict so long as his own opinion ran counter to the popular view. But it is not in these matters alone which are so well known to the public that Sir Subramanya Aiyar has followed the bent of his mind, leaving it to the public and the Government to judge of him as they pleased. Such a man in the profession of law is bound to rise to a level of his own and secure the respect of the Bench.

Subramania Iyer was a great admirer of Mrs. Besant, leader of the Theosophical Movement in India and founder of the Home Rule League in Madras. The wisest thing that Mrs. Besant did when she started the Home Rule League was to make Sir Subramania the Honorary President.  He agreed to serve as the Hon. President of the All India Home Rule League established in Madras on 1 September 1916.

 Sir Subramanya Iyer’s devotion to Theosophy has been regarded as emanating from a kind of external influence exercised over him. On the other hand it is the outcome of his spontaneous, and long cherished deeply rooted conviction that the principles of Theosophy if followed are calculated to make for a higher type of the individual and a better conduct in the discharge of obligations. If some Theosophists are not the better for it, that need not detract from the testimony of one who feels convinced in. all conscience that he has been undoubtedly the better for it. And as in everything else, Sir Subramaniem’s devotion to Theosophy has stood firm finding it worthy of his constancy just as he has stood firm in other obligations he incurred with a free, open and critical mind. When he became Chairman of the Congress Reception Committee of 1914, it was as though he had taken a fortnight’s holiday from his religious and Theosophical routine, for he had undergone a transition from secular to religious life. In 1915 when he became Honorary President of the Home Rule League it was on the understanding that he was not to be expected to do active work that he connected himself with the organization as a matter of his earnest sympathy with the movement. In 1916 when the Press Act was applied to “New India,” Sir Subramania, convinced that the object of the Executive attack on New India was to handicap it as a Home Rule organ, came forward to signify his protest against the application of the Act to the paper. In 1917 when Lord Pentland’s speech threatened action against Mrs. Besant, it was he that replied to Lord Pentland’s call for public co-operation with an unconcealed earnestness that shewed at once that if the Government proceeded to take arbitrary action against Mrs. Besant he for one would not quail from all constitutional remedies open to him to get that action reversed.

As Hon. President of the League, he took up the cause of Mrs. Besant and her colleagues and started a movement for their release. From June 1917 to September 1917, for 65 days, he became the leader of what may be called a liberation of Mrs. Besant and her colleagues from the tyranny of the British bureaucracy.

It was at this critical moment, immediately after Mrs. Besant was interned, that Sir Subramania Iyer wrote a letter to Woodrow Wilson, President of the U. S. A., describing the British rule in India and appealing for the sympathy and support of the American Government and people.

He wrote in the letter: “Officials of an alien nation, speaking a foreign tongue, force their will upon us; they grant themselves exorbitant salaries and large allowances;they refuse us education; they sap us of our wealth; they impose crushing taxes without our consent; they cast thousands of our people into prisons for uttering patriotic sentiments-prisons so filthy that often the inmates die from loathsome diseases.”

Subramania Iyer was subjected to scathing criticism in the House of Commons and House of Lords and by the British Government for writing the letter. The Secretary of State and the rebuked him when he met them in Madras to make a representation on the proposed political reforms, but Subramania Iyer strongly defended his position in addressing Wilson. A few days later, Sir Subramania Iyer renounced his knighthood, a fact not as well publicised as Tagore’s return of the honour.

Subramania Iyer was nominated as Senator of the Madras University in 1885 and he continued to be connected with that institution till 1907. As a member of the Senate, he pleaded for many reforms in education. He was a member of the Syndicate for the University for some time. He was appointed Vice-Chancellor of the University in 1896.

The Madras University conferred on him the Honorary degree of Doctor of Laws in 1908. He presided over the Madras Students’ Convention in 1916 and delivered an inspiring Presidential Address. He also served as the Chaiman of the Council of Native Education for two years. He extended his co-operation to Mrs. Besant in the establishment of the Central Hindu College at Benares which subsequently became the nucleus for the Benares Hindu University.

He was the President of the ‘Dharma Rakshana Sabha’ which strove hard to prevent mismanagement of the funds of Hindu Religious Endowment and Charitable Trusts. He also worked for the promotion of Sanskrit study and presided and impressed upon the Pundits assembled the need to shed religious prejudices and to develop a rational outlook. He was also the President of the ‘Suddha Dharma Mandali’ which published important Hindu religious works.

Even though he retired from service in 1907, owing to failing eyesight. He kept himself quite busy and active till the last days of his life. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that Sir. S. Mani Iyer was the most dominant public figure in Madras for more than three decades. He rendered invaluable services to his countrymen as a legislator, lawyer, judge, Congressman, educationist, social reformer and Theosophist.

Subramania Iyer was a Theosophist. Followers of that movement built a memorial hall for him in Raja Hanumantha Lala Street, Triplicane. His statue, erected in 1935, is outside the University Senate House. 

The death of the Grand Old Man of South India on 5 Decemeber 1924 was mourned by a grateful public who regarded him “as the soul of honour, as a man who had absolutely no personal ends to serve, and who devoted his great abilities solely to the public good.

A man who we must always cherish and look up to in all stages of life . His story can truly be of great inspiration to today’s young minds .

As a kid who grew up with a huge family with roots filled with knowledge and teacher’s around I developed a independent and questioning mind that had me read more into each tale I was one told a very long time ago .And even today I feel pride when say I am the daughter of this holy soil where a large number of brave soldiers and freedom fighters have sacrificed their lives .

Missing ❤ || Poetry

Even as the cool air hit my face ,

I wasn’t able to breathe

It felt as if I was locked

In a place with no walls , pretending

As I made myself to be happy

I was missing a huge part of me

Feeling hollow inside

Even as I laughed

I waited for what is gone to come back

Walked through paths

Once familiar and warm

Where I spent my days full of joy

Now it’s just haunting me

Reminding me of the missing one

A night indeed || Poetry

Hiding from the eyes of the seekers

We rode through the night

Making it all worth the while .

Rains came pouring

But we would not stop

OHH the view was all so great

And the moment was made

Two bodies , two souls

Dancing in the pouring rain

With their own beat

Winds clashing , clothes falling

Yet no fear of the vain

Just pleasure and love was made

No stopping , no going back just deep throbbing

With your name

While screams were heard

Full of lust and desires

As we got our pace

We took off to our game

Altogether it was a party

Of two , enjoying

Chocolates and moans together

Made our day .
