Quarantine Poetry # 18 – Saamanjasya 2 (Harmony)- Written & Recited by Anindita Ghosh (Hindi)


In this poem, Anindita Ghosh reminds us of our duty to be in harmony with nature, and not destroy it with our endless greed. Her thoughts encompass many recent events such as Covid-19 pandemic, the destruction wrought by Cyclone Amphan, the race-related protests in America (Black Lives Matter) and the killing of a pregnant elephant by a firecracker-laden pineapple in Kerala, India–indicators of the cause and effect relationship of various injustices that we see being foisted by us against fellow humans or other lives.
