Structuralism in Literature : An Introduction & Details

Structuralism is a broad concept and me, you or anybody else cannot put it entirely in a single article. That's the most important thing I thought to bring up in the very first line so that you get it first-hand that being a student of literature, you have to focus on structuralism in literature rather than the whole concept of this term (or system). Just to give you a sense [...]

Global Literature

What is Global Literature? If you ask this question to the greatest professor alive, which, unfortunately, is Google, you will get the references directing you towards 'world literature' and if you are lucky to use some broadband, you will end up knowing that 'circulation of books around the world' makes Global Literature happen. Well, I don't buy that argument of whatsoever logic is present in that. There is a certain [...]

Main – A Hindi Poem

बस अब डूबता ही समझ लो मुझे भी की लहरों से टकराने का अब बस मन नहीं। बहुत खुशनसीब था मैं की ज़िन्दगी मिली की अब मर जाने का भी खास गम नहीं।। हँस लिये, रो लिये दो-चार पुष्प हिस्से के पलों में पिरो लिये, बस हो तो गयी ज़िन्दगी, और खुद से मिलने अब चल दिए। जो टालते आया वर्षों से मैं हाँ वही तो सच्चाई है, ये पल दो [...]

Story of My Marijuana – Modernist Poem

I smoke ink to end my craving; inhale life and omit imagination; when on high dosage, I might, too, excel the reality… such is the story of my marijuana! This is a modernist poem (if I may say so) linking marijuana to poetry.

The Mute City Night | Poem

The Mute City Night   The night roars in its mute voice! City walks; city sleeps; city makes love, and city murders. The night roars in its mute voice! City lies on the footpath amid the mist and fog that might clog the soul’s movement. The night roars in its mute voice! City is sad; city will rejoice. Let the night roar in its mute voice… We all know behind [...]

Budha? The Escapist? Poem

Buddha – the escapist? The old man selling tea, Young men with office-burden Decorated on their back Walk on the road And I walk the same Thinking of world, wisdom and woe. Heavy steps I raise Nearing the door of my workplace Thinking of fribble, friend and foe. Did Buddha think of his family? Now on the office chair I justify my oblivious attitude. Yes, he moved into some anomaly! [...]

समंदर और साहिल Samandar aur Sahil | Poem | Hindi

काश की हमने समंदर से यूँ किनारा न किया होता, और बढ़ाई न होती साहिलों से दोस्ती अपनी, फिर आज हममें भी लहरों की रवानी होती। पर करते भी क्या जब मौजों को ये मुनासिब न था? सितम करते हैं वो कभी बिना सितम किये भी... और फिर मेरी कश्ती पे भी लहरों का भरोसा कभी था नहीं! गर्म रेत पे खड़े होके समंदर के किनारे देखता हूँ मैं अब [...]

Shayaris in Hindi | Some Two-liners by Alok Mishra

चलो हमने कुछ दिया या नहीं मुहब्बत में पर तुमने तो, हाँ, बेवफाई ही दी हमें! Chalo hamne kuchh diya ya nahi muhabbat me par tumne to, han, bewafai hi di hame! वो चाँद भी कोसता होगा चाँदनी को अपनी की क्यों रोज रोशन करता है अँधेरी गलियों को... Wo chand bhi kosta hoga chandani ko apni ki roj kyun roshan karta hai andheri galiyon ko... हाँ हम कभी कभी [...]

मैं वहाँ भी था। Main Wahan Bhi Tha | Hindi Poem |

बिखरे पते, सूखे वन-उपवन, प्यासे जलाशय, व्याकुल मानव मन... मैं वहाँ भी था! जाने कितने दुःशासन, कितने महाभारत समर और कितनी द्रौपदियों के चीर हरण, हाँ, मैं वहाँ भी था! खिले वसंत की अरुणाई, मानो संसार के मुख मंडल पे आभा हो नयी कोई खिल आयी, मैं वहाँ भी था! कर्मठ शरीर के कर्मकांड, मानवी के वो क्षमा-त्याग और वक्त-पथ पे बढ़ता जीवन, हाँ, मैं वहां भी था... हूँ सदा, [...]
