Standing up


My parent, an activist who founded a hospital
In a remote village of Bengal,
Stopped having milk
And dairy products
To stand for the
Mal-nutritioned children.

A worthy child,
I actively
And furiously refuse
To indulge
In any competition,
I believe in playing my part,
Not in being apart
For the sake of perfection.

Trying to be better than others
Phew it’s such a vice
Trying to improve self
And fellow brothers and sisters
It’s out-of-the-box thinking,
It’s pricelessly nice.
