To express and let my heart out, I frame the words and sculpt them to form a poetry. I am a software professional who spends whole day behind the veil of computer. During college time I was living in the world of technology which was far far away land from the poetry world. Technologies and learning new things satisfies my thirst to explore more whereas the poetic/author's world gave me the sense of peace. Whenever I get the feeling of choked, I let my feelings out by writing. I feel so happy when I write, post and the responses that we get here are so encouraging to write even more. Sometimes I empty my soul by writing. Writing is a secret superpower to feel light and happy. Written words are mightier than verbal words. I don't know how and when I fell in love with poetries. Generally I prefer to do stand up comedy because the toughest job in the world is to gift someone smile, laughter and happiness. In this platform I dedicated first poetry for the most beautiful gift of almighty "Smile" . I love the writing style of classic authors like Ravindra Nath Tagore, Sarojini Naidu, William Shakespeare, Ruskin bond, JK Rolling. I took up poetry and novel writing not just to let my heart out but also to make small impact to let the world be a better place. I hope you will love the small vignette of creativity. Spread the smile and love, Ankita :)

Hi Anika - Military Lines - thanks - and keep up with your poetic flair. I find it saves a thousand words in getting messages across in all spheres - me currently in pursuing a solution to deforestation both locally and beyond. Even when dealing with the hierarchy it seems to resonate. Blessings. P.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. You opened the gates to what could have been a very productive discussion. It is too bad that "Equality and empowerment" did not receive much commentary. I say that because you brought up some very interesting views and questions.

My thought is that equality begins with respect of the individual and the recognition/admission of the facts of inequality. I believe there needs to be more women in positions of influence to change the script of objectification to one in which merit, regardless of gender or race is the order of the day. And by merit, I don't mean successfully completing this or that given test. What I mean is willingness, tenacity, passion, etc. Recognizing those traits in a person, and having systems in place to foster the growth of the whole person, the sky would be the limit, not some manufactured glass ceiling.

Loved your biography and if your goal was to make the world a slightly better place by gifting a smile, then for me, job done my friend, job done.
