Delhi has recorded between 24,000 and 28,000 new coronavirus cases per day over the past two weeks
Weapons, wealth and power paralyzed with terror.
Pyres aching with human horror.
Statues, idols, and monuments mourn the mortals.
Politics halt and humanity works in progress.
Shady dealings of oxygen by the leech.
Confused hospitals and men beseech.
Lapse or collapse of order.
Blame the people or power.
Air around and dearth of air.
Apocalypse of bubble empire.
Hey there! I am Shehnaz Gujral and have pursued my career of two decades as an academician. I have to my credit my debut e-book, Antecedent Compendium (Puffins Publishers), a collection of sixty-six poems. I also have the privilege as a featured author in anthologies, Musings Mundane and Mortal (Tacenda Publications), One Hundred Shades of Love (All India Forum for English Students, Scholars and Trainers-AIFEST)
Literature in English has always fascinated me. I was introduced to the world of Shakespeare by my grandfather whom I lovingly called ‘Darji’. It would be mesmerizing to hear his explanations of ‘Much Ado about Nothing.
I love to express myself through writing. I have been writing on and off for quite some time but recently I have come to discover that I can be more consistent in it. I write prose but poetry comes more naturally to me. Poetry is the best form of meditation for me. The way words connect with me feels like a safe haven inside. My feelings and observations rhyme effortlessly, and my words are my best friend. I connect to the inside, detaching from the outside world.
