Three poems by Ankit Kumar

A THOUGHT

The deeper I think
The holier I be
Life is a game
Which we all wish to flee

Cogency is what everyone wants
Laconicity respected by none
For peace we say we can’t
Love is now, all for fun

We fell sad for any kind of cide
But it matters for no one
Then why are we petrified
When care for us is done by none

Jealousy, hatred is what mind mounts
Happiness, love, peace, now no one counts

We are angry, burning now
Few want to make things perfect
But they don’t know how

Sleepless nights, somniferous days
They live
Love, love, love is all they
Try to give

The day will come
When we all will die
Try to evolve love
Otherwise a day before
We will cry

DAYS

Some days come and some pass
The memory get stuck to some
Which always lasts

I remember those days
So what if they were sad
I smile when I think
About the days which were bad

Painful were some,
Neuralgic few
But when I sit alone
It gives me a nostalgic view

Sometimes I stop midway
Don’t feel to think
But it’s always too late
And I fall somewhere in a blink.

I struggle hard to come out
But cannot see any gate
Cry, shout all I try
But there’s no escape from the fate.

But days pass too
And thought dries
All I hear now is
No more cries.

I remember those days
Yes, they were happy
Still thinking of those memories
Pain and sadness ensembles in my gallery

SILENT DEATH

Opened eyes but nothing seen
Blindness that covers me within
Droplet of water that flows down
Have some painful memories which it surrounds

The mistake was made
Long time back
Why do I regret now?
Sea of guilt has reached my neck
I feel low
I feel low
I feel low

Yes, the mistake was mine
I took that blow
But now things appears to be fine
Then why do I feel so low

Things were different then
Indifferent now
I was sad then
Not so much happy now

The path of life has been narrow
Which always had some glibness
It gave me lots of sorrow
With a life, spiritless

With these situations, now I cope
But things will alter soon
I keep inside a light of hope
Hope to see a new moon

The Veteran Film Maker K. Balachander Conferred the Dadasaheb Phalke Award

The President, Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil has said cinema was a very powerful medium for conveying messages and it was necessary for promoting constructive and value based thinking for a culturally rich country like ours. This medium imposed a great responsibility on everyone associated with the film industry to use the power of cinema to do good for society, through the portrayal of attitudes that help in building a tolerant and harmonious society. The President Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil stated this while delivering her address at the 58th National Film Awards function here today.

Elaborating further, the President, Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil, stated that creativity knows no barrier of age and that the human spirit has always been striving for excellence. The awards received by 5 young artistes and an award for best writing in cinema to Ms. Vijay Mulay at her 90 years of age was an encouraging fact, this would surely inspire and motivate young film makers to give their greatest possible expression through this powerful medium.

Regarding the potential of the Indian film industry, the President stated the Indian film market has become more attractive for foreign film houses.  At the same time, prominent Indian enterprises are also participating in producing and distributing films around the world.  India’s soft power was engaged in projecting the nation world wide and Indian cinema had found markets in a large number of countries.

Speaking on the occasion, the Minister for Information & Broadcasting, Smt. Ambika Soni said that the Government had moved forward in setting up the National Film Heritage Mission with an outlay of Rs.660 crores.  This Mission would provide a platform for comprehensive solutions for cataloging, dissemination and monetization of film content, video tapes, posters and other related materials in the possession of either the Film Wing of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting or with the various State Governments as well as with private individuals and institutions.  The greatest benefit of the Mission would be to enable the preservation of the invaluable filmic heritage of the country which is an integral part of our socio-cultural heritage.  3000 films will be acquired and digitized and 3000 films will be restored and transferred to inter-negatives under the scheme and will be available at affordable rates as DVDs to public for viewing.

Elaborating further the Minister said, the year 2013 would mark the centenary year of Indian Cinema.  This centenary would be a milestone in India’s cinematic journey that needs to be showcased and celebrated.  The Minister added, the Centenary celebrations would provide the country an excellent opportunity to exhibit India’s ‘soft power’ on a global scale and reinforce the idea of “Cinemas of India” alongwith the “Incredible India” campaign. As part of the Centenary celebrations, the National Museum of Indian Cinema, a first of its kind in India, would showcase the evolution of Indian Cinema, which is being built in Mumbai and is expected to be inaugurated during the centenary year celebrations.

Regarding skill development in the film sector, the Minister said that the two Institutes under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, namely, Film and Television Institute (FTII), Pune and Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute (SRFTI), Kolkata were being upgraded to cater to the ever-increasing, highly skilled and specialized manpower requirement of the film and TV industry.  Measures were being taken to declare these two Institutes, as Institutions of National Importance through an Act of the Parliament.

The Minister added that the winners of the awards in various categories had reinforced the belief in the motto of the National Film Awards that there was only one recognition “GOOD CINEMA”. The ‘Good Cinema’ provided a platform for film centres to emerge all over the country thereby reflecting the vibrant socio cultural identity of our country in the realm of cinema.
