Control: A Poem

Vanita is an engineer-researcher-consultant-artist: a gifted singer-poetess; & writes in English-Hindi-Gujarati on her diverse experiences



To satisfy his own passions and desires

Man does always strive,

Control, on everything, he tries to acquire

To come up in his life.

He wants to restrict the flow of time

And peep into unknown future,

And to have his own command on

Free, insuppressible Nature.

Often, in this hard toil for control,

He doesn’t get the time at all

To sit for a while and ask himself,

“Do I have control on myself ?”

- Vanita Thakkar (17.06.1988)
