Tanni Bose

Oh! Pathos I envy you,
I’m obsessed with your domain.
How cowardly of you
To take refuge in the lady,
of whom the mortal remain.
The portrait hangs on the wall,
with a veil covering her face.
But I see her mournful eyes
Declaring her poor fate,
I hear her heart’s cheerless song
Saturated with sadness
I see her losing jewels from her eyes
Distressed in loneliness
You have been the cruel Czar
Ruling her heart for ages
I disown you pathos
For, you have feasted on her flesh.
Oh! Epitome of evil
Why don’t you abandon her?
Leave the lady to her fate
Who laments in utter despair.
I’m neither your equal
Nor, are you superior to me
But Oh! Pathos …….. I envy you
For it’s you who reside in her heart,
not me.

She was an English Teacher at Tendruk Higher Secondary School of the Royal Government of Bhutan hails from Kolkata, West Bengal. She was born and brought up in the steel city of Rourkela, since her father was a SAIL employee there., Writing was always a passion for Mrs. Tanni. However, 2008 became a defining year in her life since she could publish a few of her works in the school magazine and made a self-discovery that she was indeed in romance with literature. It formally bloomed in 2012 when her first anthology “Dawn and Dusk” was published. Her readers, including critics confessed that a new breeze in poetry writing is here to blow to soothe and to ruffle too, of course. Her passion for reading and writing assured her a berth in the Writers Association of Bhutan and the Edu Talk where she thinks aloud to make the readers ponder, delight and at times wrinkle their brows. Her writing in facebook and her blog “A Grain of Faith” are being followed by many. Her articles in “Student Digest and Norzam Speaks” both publications in Bhutan are well taken by readers at large. She also contributes regularly in the international journal by “TajMahal Review”, She has represented Bhutan as an official delegate in the SAARC Literary festivals in Thimphu, Bhutan in 2013. She was a delegate in the FOSWAL Literary Festivals at Agra and Jaipur in 2015 and in Delhi in 2016 February as well., “Floating Stones” is her second work of poems, ringing the inescapable paradox of existential pulls and pushes. The poetess here is swayed by multiple senses and sensibilities, reflected in these poems., Her third Book “The Molested Clay” is also ready for printing., Writing apart, Mrs. Bose loves reading, music and her students. Love given reciprocates. After all – books support her; music heals her aches and her students adore her. Life then becomes poetry to her.
