triveni spotlight: 5 june 2024

triveni spotlight A FEATURE EVERY ALTERNATE DAY! hosts: Vidya Shankar and Teji Sethi GUEST EDITOR: Shloka Shankar 5 June 2024


first day of summer—

swings outsing

the cockerel

– Richard Thomas

Blithe Spirit, 33.1



Albert Camus said, “In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.” All of us have a favourite season, and summer has always been mine. With this month’s spotlight, I wanted to capture the essence of summer in all its glory (early, mid, late), however fleetingly. Skip some stones, chase a firefly, leisurely sip coconut water, or bite into a melon. I hope you enjoy dipping your toes in the river of haiku or stop by to become one with the quintessentially blue, blue skies. 

Thank you all.

Shloka Shankar
