Kalyani Manna : Blogs




Like palm trees standing face to face in rows
Shall we remain silent, motionless
Exchanging messages in chirping of sparrows,
How long?

Shall we remain indecipherable till the end?
Unable to find the words they comprehend?

Spinning webs of their imagination
They will speak volumes; and write volumes
About us; and will lies galore
How true is each allegation
Nobody shall care to discern.

We named truth, a living entity
And then we erected a temple for it
Put it on an altar behind closed doors.
We enshrined it.

Are we game to let him?
When the deity wants to come alive
Can we accept him?
As amigo, when He breaks the closed doors
And speaks to the one within.

About The Author


Kalyani Manna

Home Maker/Housewife

Orissa ,  INDIA

I became a housewife even before I became a major. By that time I had only completed my Pre-University & was in the Ist year. Marriage put a stop to my academic career & when I again wanted to résumé my studies the system had already been changed. So I had to appear privately for my I.A degree followed by a five year lull. By the time I took admission in the B.A classes I had become a mother with two kids. But by the grace of God Almighty, I passed with distinction in Philosophy. Then again after a gap of seven years & after Rashmi’s birth I took admission in M.A classes to study English literature.


I also sing & had play- backed for several dramas, staged in our home town, Puri. I love to read, listen to old Hindi film songs & ghazals. I write poetry in Odiya, Hindi & English. I believe that most of the violence & turmoils that are happening all around us are due to our petty selfishness & intolerance. Our youth are in need of solace & must be given a patient hearing to their grievances, both real & imaginary.


I have strong faith in God & in His doings. I see His hands behind everything that happens to me. Him with me I fear nothing.
