Darkness and Light
by
Gautam Sen


Next
 

There are times the Night
Goes on and on and on;
I’ve learnt you cannot take the Dawn
For granted –
You have to work on it
Like a painter on canvas:
The darkness was your very own creation …
And so will be the Light.

Gautam Sen lives in Kolkata (Calcutta), India. Widely published in various print and online publications around the world, Gautam is the author of a nonfiction best-seller in India called The Mind of Swami Vivekananda, a children’s novel, The Fantabulous Fens, and two volumes of essays and letters. Says Gautam, "My inner life has always centered round three things: my wife (my inspiration), yogic meditation, and my literary efforts. My wife passed into spirit last December, but my priorities have remained the same."

One has to understand how the Night effects you. It is an interior conversation.
