Relief

Reading Time: 1 minuteAn evocative rain poem, by Dr. Amrinder, exclusively for Different Truths. Raindrops knock on my window I do not let them in.

Have a Heart

Reading Time: 3 minutes‘Have a heart.’ People say figuratively to the heartless but what of the mite who literally did not have a heart to speak of, or rather one too small to sustain her after birth?

Stop the Jingoism about Holy Cow!

Reading Time: 3 minutesBefore the gaurakhshaks cruelly lynch or hang another human being, let’s ask them to pause and ponder. Pause to ask one question, “How do they and their pious Hindu brothers look after their gau mata for whom they kill without compunction?” And ponder over the state their revered ‘holy cow’ is in these days of ardent cow worshippers, asks Dr. Amrinder, […]

The Ultimate

Reading Time: 1 minuteA sensuous and erotic poem by Amrinder, for Different Truths. Soaring of passions like Powerful winged birds. A cataract of pleasure Cascading over flesh.

The exquisite torture, […]
