Unifinished

What the world is so frustrated about?
The black or the white or the grey?
Why the old never meets the new?
The gap: never bridge.

Tomorrow will be the new day,
The sky, a brighter blue.
Tomorrow I set out to forget present;
A present, in the fate of few.



I need the past to write about
Chronicles they never knew.
I have no unusual talent to charm,
Or a voice to croon lyrical songs.

A silent laughter wakes me up,
From a slumber, uninterrupted, unfinished...

The poem is written by myself and Arundhati Chatterjee, my dearest cousin.

Hi Rose

I write to you on behalf of The Viewspaper (www.theviewspaper.net) which is India's largest youth paper and the 5th largest media company on Facebook.

We are organizing the World's Largest Tweet-A-Thon! and would like to invite you as a panelist for the same.

From American political journalists in the 1950s, to The Economist magazine not so long ago; speculation has run rife about India and whether we will survive as a nation.

Poverty. Corruption. Terrorism. Disease. Currency woes. We’ve got it all, and more. We’ve been written off, doomsdayed, delegitimized – but we keep coming back! What is the root of this appetite for adversity, this solid resilience?

It is our nation’s optimism. No matter how much you bring her down, India feels up!

A first of its kind initiative, the #IFeelUp Tweetathon is a 3-day virtual conference, which delights in the irrepressible state of the nation, in spite of its laundry list of issues. Over 72 hours, we’ll be bringing in 400 panelists for non-stop discussion, and that’s where you come in.

We would like to invite you as a panelist for a 30 minute session wherein you can participate from any part of the world.

If you're interested, kindly email us your contact information so that we could provide you with more details about the event.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards
