Love Aur Nafrat - A Short Verse

Here's a short verse composed by me. It's purely fictional and not based on any personal experiences.

Love Aur Nafrat

She peppered him with kisses
Until he made her his missus;
Now she gives him only gaalis,
And beats him up with thalis.

I'd like to pepper someone with kisses just now after reading this verse. I'd also like to bang him up on the head with your "thalis". This has become my all-time favourite poem surpassing the works of Williams Shakespeare and Wordsworth. I'm not sure if this convention of writing name sis OK but I'm not a poet or writer at you (and a great one at that!). So, we ordinary folks can get away with murder as far as literature is concerned.

"She peppered him with kisses"...lol - I peppered a lot of guys with kisses lately. It's snogging as they say in the Harry Potter series..

It’s quite amazing that in a book of sixty pages you have a list of poems (about twenty in number), a couple of short stories and essays that take on fascists, dictators, terrorists, Maoists and communal forces. In your book “Rose Gardens and Minefields”, you have written about Indian history, the menace of terrorism, the horror of the Naxalite movement, the current sports scene in India, the nuclear issue, secularism, the hostile acts of regional parties in Mumbai, and lots more. Your book certainly rocks and so do you!!!!!
