Switch ons and Switch offs


It is a twinkle for months together,

It works for a specific time altogether,

Twinkle does it for 3 hours in the morn.

It recedes to a hole in the post morn.

Then it comes out in the afternoon.

Again  for three hours it lights up in the noon

Back it goes down in the dusk.

Remains so almost in a husk.

Appears for an hour from thence.

Quickly disappears  from shining hence.

Surfaces again for an hour-long.

Hides itself in pitch dark for little long.

Shoots up from nowhere all at once.

Will it sustain the switch offs in a sense?

What is it all about? you may wonder.

It might be Greek or Latin to you.

Well, that is what we endure everyday.

Switch ons and switch offs of electricity through the day

Make us wriggle in scorching heat

Affect the industrial output in a beat.

Lets the children study with candles lighted.

The administration  goes about with mirth elated.

Do you want to know about the place,I am talking?

It is Tamilnadu, the southern state of India, in the awakening,

Nevertheless, they say India is shining incredibly!  all the more.

I want to bring to light this failure of electricity to the world more and more

Paradoxical Anachronism


Burning the midnight candle,

the girl was reading aloud,

memorizing the portions,

with or without understanding,

as on tomorrow she writes the examination,

it is a three-hour ordeal,

that sets her career,

the marks she scores,

would lead her in life,

well, it is the marks ,

that call for attention,

it is not the comprehension,

that shapes her future,

it might sound natural to all,

to me it is  avidly alien,

it sounds incorrigible  and unpleasant,

it tastes exclusively bitter,

it is the way of life, they quoth

anything other is an anachronism,they feel,

so, I stand out: an odd woman out.
