triveni spotlight: 27 May 2024

triveni spotlight A FEATURE EVERY ALTERNATE DAY! hosts: Vidya Shankar and Teji Sethi GUEST EDITOR: Kamrun Nahar 27 May 2024


paper boat—

how far will it carry

my child's smile


— Kashinath Karmakar


As a citizen of Bangladesh, I am a proud Bengali. We fought for our mother language, our

independence, our freedom. I live in a country where one can see the beauty of six

seasons, soothing nature, an overwhelmed peace and the silence of a solitary moon. I feel

the freedom of a bird, and I live with love. When I selected these poems, these attributes got

priority. I hope the ku that I selected for this month will be appreciated by all. I believe that it will bring a new aura, will make all the poets more connected and will enhance the interaction

among each other as well.

Thank you all.

Kamrun Nahar

The hope of a better future for your child also overcomes the pain of separation...


I love this haiku, one to treasure. Thank you.


Most beautifully written, Kash.


Good choice, Kamrun.


Thank you very much. This ku will stay with me for a very long time... and that smile will too...


This is from such a keen observation. So nicely done. I like it very much.
