Gorakh Pandey’s Lines
I am posting a poem written by Gorakh Pandey. Pandeyji and I lived in the same hostel in Jawaharlal Nehru University. On the same floor, I remember. I too was a late riser like him. We often ran into each other while brushing at the washrooms when the entire hostel was quiet and everyone had either gone off to their classes or to the library.

Grateful for the Life’s Throw of Dice
Actually I wanted to write this yesterday. Last night itself, to be precise. But when I finished reading this it was quite late in the night. And as the day breaks, things are not in your control. There are things to do. Tasks to complete. People to meet. Calls to make. Meetings to attend. And mails to answer.
