About Ravindra K Kapoor

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.

    which often stops the other men or women to help in such cases are the shocking attitude of police. Perhaps without improving them it would not be possible that people would come forward to help others. Thanks Suz for your comments and care. With best wishes..Ravindra

    Thanks Suz. for all your heart touching words and concern for the girl, who has given a new hope to Indian woman. Her sacrifice is going to create a change in the attitude of many of our sleeping millions. The story of this brave girl's fight for life to reveal the true story of those who are responsible so that they may be properly punished. She has definitely not only faced the cruel incident but also overlooking by those who were there. This has stunned the entire country and many have started pondering "Who we have become so self centered". There is one more aspect …continued in next..

    You are right Yasmin, The day we would have prompt and more effective system of justice in India the crime rate would fall drastically. The main problem is because of the wide ranging corruption in politics, which is the main cause of all that is happening in India. We are aware that in India it has gone more deep but this thing is rampant in almost in every country of the world. I am thankful for your valuable comments and hope that you would listen to the Song too and would find it more appealing. With best wishes for the New Year...Ravindra

    Thanks Carrie for your thought provoking words. You are right, women all over the world are facing some or the other kind of injustice and are often made the soft target of terror and such heinous crimes. The most striking thing is that in India culture we have given a very high place to all women, but in the last twentry thirty years things have detoriated a lot. The good thing is that now the Indian women is more awakened and conscious and are protesting for all such acts of crime and injustice against woman. My good wishes Carrie for the New Year. It was a joy to see you on my blog. Love and best wishes always...

    Let us honor her by remembering her name and be instrumental in changing the attitude of the people who just walked by..... Jyoti Singh Pandey, should not have died in vain. Her father had made a call for his daughter's name to be released. It makes a huge difference to be talking about a young girl who had a future and a NAME. She is not to be swept aside like all the other unnamed victims of crime.

    Your heartfelt poem, Ravindra, is a cry out to all those who turn their eyes away from the cruel injustice and terror that happens in this world. Not only is India subject to such horror...but the world in general, every country, every culture is the devil's workshop. Each one of us needs to stand up and speak out, scream it, cry out, sing or shout, write a poem, write a song, but make a difference in every way we can. However we can ...we must not let it continue to be ignored or tolerated. Thank you for your words
