I was at Hyderabad last week, and was privileged to meet Mr.Devipriya (yellow shirt, in the middle),noted Telugu poet , journalist and ad professional and Sahitya Academy prize winner, 2017. He is a director of the hospital that we assessed.
He presented us his book of love poems, “Sleeping with the Rainbow”, dedicated to his late wife, Raji.
His poem, “To Raji”, ends thus,
“I imagine that you are coming back to me
breaking the tomb apart
with the wings of my letters, flying
to wipe away my tears
when I bemoan your departure.”
Very touching compositions indeed.
Hats off to such a talented yet humble person.
