For quite a few years, I have enjoyed expressing my thoughts in the form of poetry. Writing about things good as well as bad has been a form of therapy, specially after I lost my mother on 5th April, 2013 - a loss that is the biggest loss one can ever have, and one that I still struggle to come to terms with.

To me, a lot of these poems are very personal - specially as they touch upon the interactions i have had with the concerned people, and only those people might be able to relate to them.

However, my father who has always been a very proud supporter of anything that any of his children and now grandchildren have done, has been wanting me to publish these poems.

It is to my dad, Mr. Bisheshwar Dayal Bhargava that I dedicate this book. Thank you Papa for encouraging me and constantly pushing me to get this going.

Lots of love,
Your daughter
Nisha Dias (Bhargava)

Happy Birthday Mummy - 11-27-2014

Submitted: August 06, 2016

Thinking of mom on her birthday nov 27th 2014Mother, even though you are not with us today,
I still want to go ahead and wish you anyway,
Eighty one years ago, you were born this day,

So Happy Birthday is what i would like to say!

In this our universe, somewhere you are living,

Looking down on us, and your blessings giving.

Since you have been gone, it hasn't been easy,

Thought of your last days, still make me queasy.

But then i think of, the smile that adorned your face,

Whatever be the situation, you handled it with grace!

You would burst into these unstoppable giggles,

And surely contagious, were those your wiggles!

At the art of cooking, you were simply the best,

In stitching too, you were way ahead of the rest.

Endless energy you had, throughout the whole day,

For all that hard work, you didn’t even get any pay!

What you did for all of us, we will always remember,

Miss you so much, on this special day in November Read Chapter
