Between the lines…

Indian Bloggers


I am the unreadable between the lines,

The brew to turn you into the finest wines

The strength to push you towards whites

The restraint to stop you step into black with my advice


As I stand the grey between the shades,

To protect you from falling grades

To segregate and drink the venom of water

To inhale the poison that lies in the air or wherever.


To absorb the radiation of the space,

Would readily get burns from fire with solace.

I won’t allow you to step into the black for a while

As I am the grey, the unsung reality of your life!

    Wow! You have a way with words, Sangeetaji! Poetry takes a different and potent shape in your hands! Loved the concept of the unsung effect, which toils in the background, unseen, so that the world can see the glory!

    • Thank you so much Rakeshji ! Don’t how I missed thank you here, but as always your comments are one the best reasons for me to revisit my old posts. Means a lot. Thanks again. 🙂

    • Thank you so much Roma. Your appreciation means a lot. 🙂

  • Brilliant Sangeetha, I am big believer in the great areas and the subjectivities of life. The objective aspect keeps life so plain and brings in the judgemental aspect in it which I believe is completely wrong (For once i am being objective here 😀 ). I really like how you have brought this through. Nice one 🙂

    • Thank you so much Vinay. I’m puzzled watching your insight in each and every aspect of life. How you show your expertise in tech as well as emotional front is really commendable. It feels great being appreciated by you. Thanks. 🙂
