Boston Bhaaratiya

I am watching the Charles in Boston wake up,
as buildings release fog and the sun smiles
over ducks swimming to their morning chores.

The river bedecked with shimmering reflections
craves to pour itself into the oceanic currents
and add more of the twenty-first century to an ageless sea.

The salt of my toil is washed into you Charles!
Take it to the ocean, take it to my ancestors,
and leave it in Dandi, India, as a tribute from me.

L Rao: I was busy wrapping up my PhD thesis... plus these days I save my poems and prose for submission to journals (they do not accept material previously published as blogs).

palahali: I am Brahmin in Boston in the literal sense, but Boston Brahmin is an American stereotype, which I think requires me to be white!

Thanks Supriyad!

Hello, Vivek! We don't know each other. I was very pleased to discover your Amazon List for Soft Condensed Matter or Complex Fluids after searching for a book called "Fluid Screens: Expanded Cinema." I'm fascinated, obsessed really, with the "in between" states of matter though, I'm not a scientist. I'm an art historian/theorist actually and I find the processes of matter useful in examining some of the most complex works of art of the last century especially.
I'm happy to learn of you, your work and your blog. I'm part Desi, too, though I was raised entirely in the U.S. My name is Mitali.

Thanks Mitali,

Soft condensed matter is most fascinating for me not only as it is capable of being a fluid or a solid as per the stress applied to it, but also because some of the most amazing patterns formed by these systems. The science is complex, and their beauty is breathtaking!
