My Poems: (In my native language - Gujarati)
I have tried my best to translate them in English with same poetic effect.
Tappoo - is the name I use to refer to myself.
I wrote this after spending a year in US, away from my family.
I did experience here, the life in different modes,
I wrote this while slogging during my masters studies and missing my
Slogging I am,
because its the "more" I am seeking,
I wrote this when I realized that I was naive when it came to judging
whom I should trust with 'trust'
This is what I
realized when I sat down alone to think what I have been doing,
Like a sheep I
follow others for materialistic "things",
Now got all the
"things" in life, but can I appease myself?
Most of your
life you have now lived 'Tappoo', its all past,
I wrote these
two when I received outstanding student award, fellowship,
I wonder why god created the world this way.
Why god thought this way?
poor, he created wealthy,
enough for some, but unable to eat,
when look at
others while enjoying my happiness,
I, Parag, and
all of us want the world to be fair,
This is when I
had no one to talk to in my native language Gujarati, and I felt that
to pen my
thoughts, hard is now to find a single word,
This one was out of dilemma/fear/unpreparedness/whatever of engagement/marriage/whatever. I wasn't sure if I was ready for it. I was trying to think about every possible situation that I may have to face in future. I repeatedly looked back and was almost convinced that I had successfully faced many challenges in the past. I kept thinking about how this will change all my future decisions.
