Today is World Poetry Day. The poet here muses on whether her poetry counts for poetry, as it doesn't have meter or rhyme. But what of it, when the feelings are there.

The first creative piece that I ever wrote as a child was a poem. There is something magical about poetry. Even a single line can evoke several emotions within the reader. Poetry is profound and gentle, structured and abstract, meticulous and carefree, broken and whole. It is everywhere, within us and around us.
On this special occasion, here is my ode to poetry.
No! I am not a poet.
What is a verse or a couplet?
My words have no rhythm,
Neither panache nor wisdom.
The meter is time and again irregular,
With thoughts strewn all over the paper.
Often impromptu and seldom chiseled,
Instinctive, raw and sometimes shriveled.
Style and form are for the maestros;
For me it’s my reflection, poetry or prose.
I scribble and dump, and scribble and dump;
I don’t how, but the letters dance and jump.
Maybe, this is the magic of poetry;
Creating its own pattern and symmetry.
When heart meets the mind,
When soul also gets intertwined;
They work enchantingly in tandem,
Making sense of the random.
No! I am not a poet…
I am but a humble puppet
In the hands of the poetry innate;
The master is what I create.

Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
It is high time that women truly understood their worth and place in society, and rightfully claimed it for their own good.
Albert Einstein pretty much nailed it when he said, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
The crazy-haired genius was being eloquent about a facet of human nature that doesn’t really deserve that sort of consideration.
As an extension of this strange predilection, it’s in our nature to put things in their place and most people, in particular, simply cannot resist putting a woman in her place.
