About Ravindra K Kapoor
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoA brief introduction:

Born in 1950. I have done my post graduation in English Literature. In my childhood days I was living very close to a beautiful forest with a lovely lake called ‘Allen Forest’. I used to sit in that forest for hours in the calm and cool atmosphere of that lake and in those memorable days.

I started conceiving my first poem in that Allen forest and lake itself, which I use to visit almost every day, often with friends and sometimes even alone also in my childhood and early young age days. In the field of Art I had made my initial paintings in oil colors but they are very few. I composed my first Hindi Poem in 1971 when I was posted in a sugar factory. During that time I have written few small philosophical poems only. My love for photography started oozing around 1985 when I purchased my first Yashica Camera.

My initial pictures remains concentrated on my family members and scenic beauties. In between 1971 to 2001 I was too busy with my job first with British India Corporation and then with Government of U.P as I was educating people in Foreign Trade on national level.

During this period from 1991 to 1999 I made extensive travelling from East to West and from North to South of my country almost twice in a year, which gave me a unique chance to study and understand life and nature both in general which reflects in my Poems and Photos everywhere. In 1999 I took VRS and joined a multinational company ‘Organic India’ earlier known as IITC as its Executive Director, but left it in 2001 and started my own work of educating people in foreign trade.

t was only around 2007 when I bought a new mini digital camera that Photography began to show its colors in my Photos. In 2009 I became a member of Poetry Soup accidentally, while surfing the net and that was a turning point of writing more and more poems almost every day. Even I translated some of my father’s works also on Poetry Soup. Later on in 2011 when my son gave a gift of Canon Camera that I started enjoying Photography and these Photo Poems started forming shapes in my works.Song writing emerged, when some of my poetry Soup friends commented on my poem finding some of my poems more like a Song.The seed is there in me and even in my family member’s blood, because of my mother, who was a great musician, singer and because of my father, who wrote many Poems, Epics, novels and even dramatic verse and some songs also. Because of my other family members love for music, right from my childhood as I used to hear my favorite songs many a times.

The company of a wonderful forest (Allen Forest) and the lake with the company of River Ganges, which flows right in front of my house at a little distance with the most beautiful surroundings of Agriculture University quite near to my place have played great roles in shaping me what I am today.

My New Song on You Tube with Titles in English


Blog Posted:7/24/2012 10:42:00 AM


Good Morning & Good Evening.

I was partly away from PS for over a month as I could not post any new Poem in the last one month. Hope you all are enjoying the current season of Rains and would find my Folk Song translated here in English, but originally sung in Hindi and placed on YOU TUBE as Video Song as a chance to see the feelings and sentiments of Indian village farmers. You comments on You Tube would be highly appreciated.

Love and best wishes...

Ravindra

Song' theme in Poem/Song form also posted on

BACKGROUND OF MY FOLK SONG ( Video Song )


This Folk Song in Hindi with Titles in English and Roman English contains the Story of a farmer, who was too worried to see his dry fields in rainy season. Because of no Rains, the season of planting Rice saplings was getting delayed. His eyes were full of tears. The clouds felt pity for this noble farmer and it showered rains and filled his fields with rain water because of his love for trees. The story also shows concern on cutting of trees, which results in no rains often and in the end inspires others to plant more and more trees.

    HI HI!! :-) I am back, here with my own comment, on the youtube video invite. I was very impressed with the style of the folk song in Hindi. I'm so glad you offered the poem with English in the subtitles. The farmers Story, was rather touching. I just hope he holds enough faith not to worry about the rainy weather that approached his dry fields. You know the rule he who waits, gets a big reward after being looked out from them clouds who took pity for his nobleness. I love the inspiration you offer through out your poem...:: I much enjoyed the song in the Hindi Voice.. ((it is yours dear Ravindra)) Once again Thank you...always~ PD

    Ravindra, I don't know how Ruben found your song. When I pasted that link, it only took me back to the google link to this blog. I tried finding you at youtube under your name but there are too many Ravindras, etc. over there! Maybe I did something wrong. anyway, I think I heard one of your youtube videos before and it was very interesting!
