A writer from Kolkata, Bengal and a life-long devotee of Swami Vivekananda, Suhina is against any discrimination. Two significant life-forces propel her – ‘love’ and ‘writing’. Suhina’s book ‘Tumi’ (you) and Songs of Silence (A Journey to Love), are collections of her poetic thoughts.

If

But

Then

Again

Though…

May Day and the fall of humanity

Tears and tantrum

Sickle and Shikol

Torment and treatment

Hallucinations and hatred

Divinity and demand

Maze and runner, and traps and never-ending lore of nightmares.

 

Am I going to be another hypocrite?  

Or an arrogant middle class mastermind to resist

Or reform and break the chain of slavery

Of my own dreams and desires

Or waiting for u … for your mercy or miracle

For the same cycles of ruler and runner

Treachery or tantrum

Treatment and test

Torture and tease!

Or nothing

Nothing reminds that nothingness of existence

Or no change…

 

I hear

Then try

Try to listen and realize

The meaning of the whispers of the rolling stone

And the songs of the brown leaves.
