Ghusmat – 26 May 2020


सय नादावली
नीज नासवते
घुसमट होते

शहारून येते
जुनी कासविशी
रात्र वेडीपिशी

    I read this poem and was stunned and speechless. Never have I come across a poem as sharp as this one which speaks so concisely as to what an insomniac goes through. The nights are terrible and no one, not even your mother can understand what exactly is keeping you awake. What’s the restlessness. The shrinks can’t help too. The minute i read this I was teary eyed.

    I recently had a live chat with a reiki master and during which he says that artists are spiritual beings. And just yesterday I stumbled upon this particular quote on Brainpickings website, James Baldwin writes – An artist is a sort of emotional or spiritual historian. His role is to make you realize the doom and glory of knowing who you are and what you are.

    Just wanted to say this again, Your writing is divine. Blessed. 🙏
