Poetry - 2


  By Subramania Bharati



        The poetry, ‘wind’ by Subramania Bharati is all about the destruction causes by the wind and the way one can make the wind friend. At the starting of the poetry, the poet requests the wind to come softly as it breaks the windows and the doors, throw the books and important papers, tears up the pages of the books and brings the rain. The actual fact is that the wind laughs at every weaklings and destroys every thing which is weaker. So the poet suggests that the wind will never listen to our request rather we shall make ourselves strong and then the wind will be our friend. We shall have to build strong homes, strong doors and make our body strong with determined heart. To prove this, the poet gives an outstanding example that when there is weak fire, the wind blows it out but if there is strong fire, the wind will never be able to harm it rather it would help the fire to flourish. Finally, the post says that the friendship of the wind is good but its only possible when we make ourselves strong.
