Thatched Relief !!!


To savor traditional craftsmanship,

One has to tread into our villages,

Bidding farewell to concrete jungles of comfort,

Isn’t that that easy,

Lands us out of place,

Leaves us present out of nowhere

Like that thatched mud bathroom,

As if, built by an urban farmer,

Against those tall towers watching over,

Everything that still confirmed it a city on all sides,

It stood out odd,

Against millions of cars parked thereby,

Went haywire attending the ladies,

Patiently, digesting their hurry, fury,

Their temper, the ceaseless queue,

Bowing down it served,

The Handicrafts Fair was on,

These were its hours of duty…




(Stay tuned for more from the Surajkund Handicrafts Mela (Fair)’2013, Haryana, India.)
