cities i knew


City of hopes is India’s Mumbai, where skyscrapers claw down dreams from the sky-

Life is a rush in suburban trains, hot summer and drenching rains-

Yet people are vital, social, aware, there’s a sense of camaraderie in the air-

So many rush in, their hopes flying high, and many succeed, though some dreams die.


Fragrance of jasmine strung in long black hair,

And swish of silks- are carried on cool  dry air-

Lilting music, dancing feet- a crescendo of sound- percussion beat!

Chennai hosts this fest every December-

An extravaganza we relish and remember!
