Join the gang!



Bowls of haldi-kumkum,
incense, bel and tulsi
arranged on a gleaming thaali.

Bunty, Chiku and Munni
gather for the prayer.
Little chubby fingers
clasped tightly together.
The silver bell
is shaken with vigor.

She, with newly washed
jasmine hair.
He, holds the lighted lamp;
eyes, incandescent desire.
