Odyssey to india
the Hissings of mumbai
the bright colours of the city chimes
this motherland of mine
has many stories and tales that shines
the buzzing streets of surat
buried with past secrets
people commemorate despite of their different lives
all residing side by side
mango bazaar in valsad
designer clothes and bag shops
an orphan child close by
hiding his smile
i say "a hundred rupee for you young man"
he modestly decorates his face with a fragile smile
an eerie presence in taluka-tala
a place of my ancient ancestors
village-folk congregates as the daylight slowly become darkness
a spirited singing begger illuminates the night with precious richness
"A family trip to india inspired me to write a poem about the cultural,vibrant and cosmopolitan
some cities of india. A beautiful country with wonderful people"
