Human character may be the most difficult to understand topic in the world. I have come across many people with diverse qualities. Some of their qualities are much above average which may put them at par with any great personalities of the world. But the same person may have a worst habit which may put him at par with a criminal behind the bar. In my poems, I am trying to portray some contradictions observed by me in human characters in dealing with people in my day to day life. However, characters are fictitious and far from reality.

Thanks to my readers and friends and above all my family for their constant support to write something usual and unusual. I love them all.

Thanks to Smashwords for publishing this story book along with my other books.


Am I Perverse

Flunking my cabin door;

Like a Jalaikatu bull,

With full of anguish in his face;

Demanded to know;

Am I a perverse one?

Why the hell,

You have asked me?

I also demanded to know my sixty-five-year-old friend;

With a tone of sympathy.

With same heat in his voice, he said;

You know my profession;

You know my capability.

With a feeble smile in my face,

I admitted;

I do know your profession,

I know your capability;

However, I did not tell him;

I hate to admit;

I always envy your profession.

I hate to admit,

I envy you;

For your capability

To look beyond the robes of someone.

I hate to admit,

I always envy your power;

To un-robe a beautiful lady;

Even without touching her body;
