Here, the days are busy and bright
And the nights are amply light
In bars and pubs, people get tight
That is, as a matter of course, all men’s delight

Folks commute miles and miles
Of varying creeds and life styles

where work is every citizens’ right
And for freedom, they really fight
Observe her rattling might
How appealing is her sight!

On a roller coaster is her economy
That writes human destiny
For some, it’s a galvanizing entity
And for some, it’s a sad irrationality

The skyscrapers are tall and high
Terrorists’ attack, their end draws nigh
The soldiers fight and the ministers sigh
The masses call for election, roar and cry

While I walk in every street, and polluted air I breathe
I see scars of depression and angst in every faces I meet
Then, I move along the Arabian shore
The splendid sea, I adore

    1. Thanks a lot Soma! I live in Navi Mumbai too, but thought of writing about Greater Mumbai since there is not much to write about Navi Mumbai( but nowadays there is, for example Cetral park which is considered the largest park in Asia and lot more ) people are not very aware about Navi Mumbai though.
      I’ve heard a lot about Bangalore, can’t wait any longer to be there.


  2. Oh, I adore the sea like you do, yes. And yes, I have walked down the street and seen depression & depression. This was a beautiful poem. I’d love to go by your Arabian shore. You know, it’s almost a fantasy – the Arabian shore. Like from books I’ve read in childhood. You’ve got a lovely page here 🙂


  3. Thank you for liking my poem. And yes, you’re most welcome to the World’s Arabian shore, she stands baring her bosom to the blue sky, the moon and the stars up above,

    I’ve satisfied my reading appetite at your page and will visit soon again, your page moved me! 🙂
