Is it the devil

The devastating earthquake 

Is it the devil 

Manifesting evil

Peaceful existence

 Distraught by raiders

Suffering separation death

Is it the devil 

Manifesting evil

Haughty affluent man

Silences his conscience 

Rapacious he moves on

Is it the devilManifesting evil

Alas! Devil muzzles them all

Oh the tiny famished being

Steals bread for living 

You little devil

Says the law 

Is it the devil

Manifesting evil

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
