triveni spotlight: 23 March 2024

triveni spotlight A FEATURE EVERY ALTERNATE DAY! hosts: Vidya Shankar and Teji Sethi GUEST EDITOR: Iqra Raza 23 March 2024

new home

we unpack

old habits

Debbie Antebi


As the world gets increasingly loud, not just aurally but visually as well (especially with the proliferation of technology and capitalisation of attention), I focus my selections around ‘intimacies’. Moments of quietude that involve a reckoning with intimacy in its various forms and along varied axes: with the self, with others, with material objects, with places, with thoughts and values, with the environment around us. To be intimate is to acknowledge the depth of silence, to allow it to settle into the self, and sometimes even to be overwhelmed by it. The ku I have chosen for this month explore what it means to be intimate in different ways.

poem for a friend



late March -

yes the poui trees are

smothered in colour



Even I have an unpublished poem on 'unpack' which i had written when Triveni had conducted an online gingko walk where we had to read our verses after we had gone out for a gingko walk just after Covid.

winter sun

in my gingko walk

i unpack myself


Wonderful poem. 8 syllables packs a huge punch.

Beauty in its simplicity. I've read this several times trying to take it in.
