The voice thundered full of confidence.
The thrill of being heard was felt.
The power, the glory
of knowledge, of words.
The voice carried a distinct quality
the speech carried it too.
What they call it nowadays...
ah! the mark of individualism.

The thundering voice lost its sheen
not just to others but to my ears too.
It was mere sound
To be heard but to be felt.

Mark of individualism met a noisydeath.
Silence still had its velvety touch...
A sense of calm coupled with music...

Nice one! I still think your best was about Nisha. I was wondering while reading it, how u came up with the name :) I liked the metaphor and the innocence of the poem. I think those were its most endearing qualities :-)

hey kaushik,
thanx for visiting my blog.
about the title:
u know 2 years back there were bomb blasts in a train and a bus in bombay. and people who died were commoners like me. so i came up with the title.

hey chyrag,
u wont earn extra marks:-(

i do feel like writing about other things...but poetry comes naturally to me and concumes less of my time.
