Like a Shadow
by Ela Omoosin

A legacy stretches like a shadow,
From life's journey to the afterglow,

Leaving footprints in its endless chase,
Ideologies woven, a tapestry grand,
Guiding future generations to understand.

To leave you in my will
But what I have for each of you
Is something greater still

Photographs and memories
I know will make you weep

A Prayer To The Goddess, Ganga
by Pijush Biswas

Let us seek beauty in thee, O! let us be free from obscurity.
