No matter how wide you stretch your fingers, your hands will be too small to catch all the pain you want to heal.

The best examples of spoken word poetry I know are poems that need to be heard out loud or witnessed in person.

When I was in high school, I noticed that a lot of my friends seemed frustrated and angry. I was lucky to have discovered spoken word poetry as a way to express my concerns and feelings as I was taught that my voice was necessary and relevant.

I want to help build a population of people who have the ability to listen to someone else’s experience and outlook, to bear witness to what someone else is going through, and to learn empathy.

We often tell people to stop being afraid of writing bad poetry, or bad anything.

Our day-to-day lives are pretty chaotic. On any given day, we’re either en route to a show, coming from a show, going to a school, going to an airport, going to a train station…basically on the road for most of the year.

I have always loved writing, ever since I was very little. I didn’t think there was such a thing as a “professional” poet though, so that wasn’t a dream of mine.

Poetry was just something I liked, just as there were lots of other activities I liked.

My original article about Shambhulal in Bengali which was translated and published by 'The Print' . Headline was changed by them.

The way I was abused & hated today for being misunderstood or for a twisted headline of an article or for being truthful & honest is really sad. But this is my life. I lost admirers? No, they're not real admirers who hear lies & garbage & start hating without checking facts.

How many people who are abusing, insulting and humiliating me for writing an article condemning the killing of a worker love India more than I do?
