Mother Earth🌍

Oh, Mother Earth, today we commemorate your day,
But have we ever paid heed to what you say?
Living in a concrete jungle, cutting your trees,
I am sorry for we couldn’t hear out your pleas!
Today your children are brutally killed,
But all you wanted us was to be a guild.
Oceans are being filled up dirt,
And we kill for nothing but mirth.
Polar caps are melting, time is running out,
But we continue burning and being uncouth.
And all we do is blame global warming,
While the rate of wreckage is just alarming!
But, Oh mother, now we have started to worry,
It is the time to make amends and say sorry!

– Your child, Kriti Bandyopadhyay

This Earth Day let us all join our hands together and help saving this beautiful planet. Some little efforts can be taken by each one of us like:-
1. Switch off the lights​ whenever they are not required
2. Maybe use AC only in summer and if possible use energy efficient ones
3. Try to use solar energy and encourage your society to start using solar bulbs
4. Use water as judiciously as possible
5. Use public transport more often. Don’t take that auto if you can take the bus

Let’s save the Earth together!😊

Theme – Depression: Let’s talk

You were there when no one was,
You made my life full of cause.

You were there when I was alone,
You helped me let it out and moan.

Whenever I pressurised you,
You made breath for two.

When I was lying there crying all night,
You were the one who rekindled my light.

I always know you will never leave me,
Without you, I will not be.

Thanks for always beating, Heart,
No one can be what thou Art.

You maybe the size of a fist,
But keep thundering when I feel missed.

-Kriti Bandyopadhyay

“Human beings need a lot of things to feel alive – family, love, sex. But we only need one thing to actually be alive. We need a beating Heart”.
– Grey’s Anatomy

Whenever you feel depressed, you should remember that you have atleast one thing to give you company- your very own heart. Let’s not forget that your heart beats continuously every 0.8 seconds and keeps you alive till you die.

So this World Health Day, let’s pledge for a healthy tomorrow by keeping our heart safe. Help your heart keep you alive because that’s the least you can do.

#WorldPoetryDay

Dedicated to all those Unrequited Lovers-
Be brave, you can move on. Try to find the silver lining. The cloud will go away.

Reminiscing the past,
I wondered how the time moved so fast,
Pondering over those days,
I seemed to be in a daze,
All I could remember was your rash behaviour,
Which no matter how hard I tried would not waver,
And would only but induce fear.

Mr. Poet had turned into Mr. Cold,
Time and again, as the days turned old,
Mercilessly tearing my life apart,
You departed, reluctant to be its part.

Love was everything I ever gave,
But you turned out to be a knave,
Now I see there’s no one to save,
And I am the one who has to be brave.

My love was like the universe,
But yours stayed as long as a pulse,
Mine kept on augmenting,
While yours only kept fading.

Now I am the one who’s hypothermic,
Miles away from being philic,
Friendship was all that I ever asked for,
Unfortunately, it turned out to be a war.

And they say, “Never fall for a poet,
Because all they do is remain quiet”.
But I consider it to be a boon,
‘Cause it made me a poet soon.

Thanks for triggering my poetic streak,
It stopped me from becoming a freak.

Reminiscing the past,
I wondered how the time moved so fast,
Contemplating the loss of a friend, Something that I could never mend,
I wished those happy moments had lasted forever,
And that you didn’t have to turn cold ever!
