Speed Thrills !


When VICTORY was conceived in the womb,
There was a premonition !

While the irrepressible wags yearned to comb—
Many a Myth would be due for demolition !

That the scion would tread the chosen path
And allow anointing the ideal groom…

He chose different ways–ignoring the elders’ wrath–
Of reinventing the family heirloom.

Embraced speed to reach his goals
And rode over pit-stops in a natural hurry—

His quests eventually left gaping holes:
Presenting his spirited fan-club a huge cause to worry !

About Kumaara Sukeja

As for my bio-tidbits, had studied English Literature for my B.A ( Hons.) degree in the 70s.Dad was a writer and a journalist of repute in the vernacular media in his time. There were also others before him in the family who had celebrated works in their names in the Kanarese, the local language.I was fascinated by Ogden Nash for one for his originality. Among the literary devices, I have almost a weakness for Alliteration and Rhyme schemes also come easy to me. As one grows mellow with age—I am Sixty–I guess, Empathy is one virtue that develops in the character, naturally, after shedding a lot of flab throughout the years…Although my name is Ramesha, I prefer to write under my pen name.
