Milan Mondal (Towards Visibility)

Milan Mondal
SYMPATHY

My trousers are outdated. 
"Baggy it is", They say. 
'Scare-crow' is the epithet 
My shirt fits. 
My sandals are rough 
As they lose the glamour. 

They giggle at my back 
For my attire, 
And sympathize in front 
For my lame leg.

Milan Mondal has already been published among literary stalwarts by a number of editors/publishers having worldwide recognition. Milan may be reached at milanmondalapengnrc19@gmail.com.

  1. Just a continuum of the culture which has rich embroidery in the front of kurtas, and plain fabric at the back. One learns to look only at the facade! And we certainly are not comfortable with disabilities, so it is wonderful and brave to have it presented in a poem
