I am a self proclaimed philosopher,poet,artist,educationalist,social activist, wonnaa be politician, wonna be entrepreneur (the irony is that I never get the spelling of this word right. I have to use spellcheck),film critic,actor etc etc. Hey I cant forget another quality, thats a programmer. Except this last quality none of my friends would agree that I posses the other mentioned qualities.Out of all those the one quality that everybody is scared of; yes you guessed it right! Its my poetry. I discovered the poet inside me since she arrived in my college as a fresher when I was in second year. Till to date I never managed to even speak to her but she fueled enough to my poetry. My poetry usually involved translation of popular hindi film songs to english, english poems to hindi shayari and marathi to hindi and vice versa. I relied more on the ignorance of my readers. just search ‘rediff akshar poetry’ in google to get the gigantic list of my poetry. I also received many comments which pampered me like anything.
Never mind! Whenever I get more discouragement from others I prepared myself for a still bigger venture. My disregard for the advise “you cant do it” has always helped me to overcome my largest fears. Poetry is another field. I have been a terrible blogger. My spelling mistakes made people laugh and get angry. Even today I don’t know the spellings of some common English words. My grammar (believe me I dotn know the spelling of grammar as well I use spellcheck) resembles more to sanskrit than English 🙂 Look at some of the comments I got when i use to write poetry on Rediff.
