A journey back to Middle Earth…

Smog Horns!!


Our plane lands in the great heat,
We collect two trolleys full of luggage,
Tired with not much sleep.

Everywhere the horns are honking
While the smog blurs the views away,
the Arabian Sea ripples while the red sun sets,
And it’s getting darker and darker today…

Some new and unpleasant smells
On the dangerous roads with no pavements,
Mumbai, we have arrived,
What surprises do you hide?

  1. You don’t need to visit the Goethe-Institut in Mumbay or where ever in the world, because you have the most wonderful poet travelling with you. I’m very impressed. Bravo Nilay!

  2. Totally agree, beautifully written Nilay!! Sures and Simmi are in awe!
