“The streets are full,
A horde of entitlement
Scuttling out of alleys and
Slithering out in tailored suits.

The skyline,
A glimmering canvas,
Promising boundless joys
Within the ambit of its crown.

A life spent,
Reaching and straining
Towards conquests.
A life spent,
Blind to one's own.”
Meera Nair

“Nothing is easy in life. No plans were ever unhindered.”
Meera Nair
