Who Am I?

Me – here is who I am!

Reading and writing have always been my passion. Since school years, I used to enjoy the literature classes, be it English or my native language, especially the ones on poems. I’ve always had the thrill in both reading new poems and trying out my own poems.

My all-time favorite poets are – a long list comes [not in any order though]

-          Thiruvalluvar - Gosh, he is the bestjust in two lines only he, can say it all!!

-          Bharathiyar - I am awestruck every time I think of him -  with such a short life how many beautiful poems he has rendered! If only he has lived longer!

-          Shakespeare – Oh, that’s a legend who lives forever! I always admire the way he wrote Sonnets. My favorite sonnet of his is, Sonnet 116 – “Let me not to the..”

-          Rudyard Kipling – my favorite of his poems is  “If … “ –  that’s something for life-time!

-          Elizabeth Barrett Browning – my favorite of hers – ‘How Do I Love Thee?

-          Robert Lee Frost – “The Road Not Taken

-          John Keats – “When I Have Fears

-          Edgar Allan Poe

-          Walt Whitman

-          Swami Vivekananda – “Arise, Awake, Stop not till the goal is reached

-          Francis Bacon – I love all his words!

-          William Wordsworth

-          G.K. Chesterton

Oh and I can go on and on…

Having listed all these experts in poetry, I feel kind of odd to mention about my own poems!!

Anyway, let me put it like this – having them as inspiration, here I am trying out with my writings…

‘My Books’ are my collection of poems on eBooks – marking my debut.

‘My Blog’ would be the one through which I would share my thoughts – of course the ones I choose to share I guess…

Thank you for stopping by and reading my writings!

a reader is all it takes – for a writer to write!

      • Hi Suba
        I am looking for book Volga to Ganga (hindi or English)
        Can you help.

        I am searching this book since long but not getting any leads to find this book. ( you can write to me on designcad22 ‘at’ yahoo dot com)

        • Chirag! oh yes, that’s one of my old time favourite book! I also had a very hard time – I was looking for it long time, but couldnt get it online even in amazon either. So finally I bought it when I went to India last time. I’d say, that would be a sure shot!

  2. good design, i’ll learn from you.

  3. I, personally, would add The Psalms, written by David, the sons of Korah…but that’s just me. Glad to make your acquaintance! I’ll be watching?

    • Though Iam not very well versed in Psalms, I have heard few, and I am sure those are one of a kind too. No wonder you would like to them to be your most favorite!

  17. Suba,

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and responding to “The Gun, the Bad, and the Ugly.”

    I’m afraid that poem, along with the previous poem, combined to disquiet my grown children, who both Facebooked me in hysterics. I assured them it was not autobiographical (at least to the dire extent of it), and that I possessed nothing like a gun in my arsenal.

    Your layout is, indeed, unique. I promise to return and peruse. I invite you to do the same as you wish.

    Sklip Marsden (aka, L. Stewart)

    • Hi Stewart,
      To think of that, that might be true from their point of view. But still as a parent, your words had the message that has its own place and meaning as well!
      Anyhow, your writings are wonderful!
      And I am so grateful for your kind words about mine.
      Please do re-visit, will do the same as well.

    • Thats so nice Candace – you also like Frost? But again, what is not to like about him, right?!
      And thank you very much for your stopping by to read and comment about my poems! will look forward your re-visits!

  19. Wonderful blog Suba :) May I make a wee suggestion? Some of your (listed) poets are new to me. I wanted to click on their name and be led to… their works? some more info, a Wikipage.: Maybe link their name to their poems in your blog…? Just a thought.

    Thanks for coming by my blog and liking my post :)

    • You know what, that is indeed a wonderful idea Elizabeth! I do like your suggestion, and thanks for that. Will try to do it soon.
      Of course and thank you very much for your super compliment as well. Love your writing too!
