Recently a few students of Aligarh Muslim university approached me to record a poetry for their seniors to be played on last day of college. This poetry was a gift from the current batch to passing away batch on their farewell.
I am the spirit of my times, anonymous and numberless, I am occupy, I am love
Seeing the cheer of the festive season and the despairing faceless alleyways
I am suddenly more than, more real than, more people than I ever have been
And I hear the earth calling, the bodhisattvas of the earth calling, a million magi.
Whenever I woke up..
I started walking
It came from no where..Hit me..and Hit me
And so it poured ,
Like heavens had given up,
Like it was the end.
The thunder was deafening,
like it wanted to say something,
or prevent something being said.
There was a time I loved the rain,
I danced , I jumped and thumped my chest
How long you live,
How well you live,
does it matter?
Found another poet par excellence, when he recites he not only gives poem a musical touch but also involves his whole body in the process.
His motto is pretty similar to mine, I want to bring poetry to everyone , he wants to make people who hate poetry to love him.
If people love him ,they by extension will love his work which is poetry. Liked this thought….
here is a Ted talk by him..

बहुत लिखता हूँ में,
कुछ सुनने को,
इक नया किस्सा,
सबको बतलने को.
