Darkness everywhere

Darkness at the begining

Darkness at the end

His mind rewinds

As he slips through the dark tunnel

Disowned by sinners

Possessed by offenders

Journey of a creation

From dump to waste

Maimed for wretched look

At traffic signals and every nook

Palms spread and pleads made

Dawn to dusk for a crust of bread

As age proceeds

An upgradation in deeds

Purloin made expertise

His life no ease

Plunged down a down a dark tunnel

Darkness at the beginning

Darkness at the end

A child counsellor and teacher, enjoyed every moment of motherhood
My Masters degree in Child Development and Family Relations is a value addition to a basic affinity towards people

Reading and writing is passion inherited from my family who were voracious readers, lovers of art and theatre

I am fortunate to nurture my interests having a life partner with similar interests. My children too are taking forward the legacy

Proud to be associated with Artoonsinn which is family for me
