Ma Ngobo's Place at Scenery Park

ma ngobo lives in the far stretches of scenery park a tiny house amidst shacks and shanties seems to challenge still an unburnt sky lush greenery in abundance has taken over the tiredness of old thoughts flaming tyres around necks and a flaming jungle are as remote as long lost anc promises i often drink here to the laughter of myths a rebellion of conscience seems so far.

Poem and Watercolor by Amitabh Mitra

An orthopaedic surgeon in a busy hospital in East London, South Africa, I actually belong to Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, its long summers and hectic politics. I edit a print poetry journal called 'A Hudson View', a journal on African arts called 'Inyathi' and dream of going back to Gwalior. My blog on South African Arts is http://www.amitabhmitra.blogspot.com/
