Hot soothing tea with poetry trails

A twirly tweak of sunshine plays outside my window today which saw only rain, gloomy clouds and water that filled up roads, drains and potholes a week or two back.During one such day,  5th November 2017 to be precise, there was an Open Mic event (LIT) where I had to present my poetry. It was a delightful experience. Thank you Gayathri. Poetry at Tea Trails Youtube Link Advertisements Continue reading Hot soothing tea with poetry trails

Right Here. Right Now. Open Mic – LETS TALK LIFE!

I was getting late (as usual) although all things had been taken care of at home. What the heck! I was going out for an Open Mic after a very long time. Reached the venue just in time. And, was I glad that I made it! Before I delve any further about the programme I attended and performed in, I need to tell you this: Let’s Talk Life is a platform for people who wish to share their darkest secrets, display the talents they didn’t know existed or just plain spend an evening with like-minded, creative people.

TRIBUTE TO JAYALALITHA – NAILED IN

They nailed her in. Again. Not new to the vicious game. She had been nailed in. Before. When academics she wished to pursue the world had nailed her desire. To no one she could display her aching ire. Weaving dreams in tinsel town she fell in love, was pulled down. Was the love of his life. Sadly, he already had a wife. Nailed in again! Political play, all that she could get, she learnt the tricks of the trade, had to face humiliating tirade. Nailed in again! Accusation, Corruption, Affection, Defection, she faced them all. Every fatal fall burnt her, … Continue reading TRIBUTE TO JAYALALITHA – NAILED IN

THANK YOU GANESHA!

Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Does it matter after all? An Open Mic for feminism!

Saturday 6th August, 2016, an exciting theme event beckoned me. It called for poetry presentation on the topic of beauty and the pressures of looking good in society. And yeah, you got it right – it was about women! Apart from the theme that interested me, the fact that certain speakers were also going to voice their views on the above mentioned topic confirmed my place in the crowd. Sharada Vijay and Nandhitha Hariharan were the hosts for the event. Quite unlike other formal hosts, they put you at ease immediately irrespective of the fact whether you were performer or … Continue reading Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Does it matter after all?
