Sailing the sea




Poetry is the yacht on which I sail the sea
I fear the storm no more
I carry a storm within

Colour me not today



Colour me not today
I was black for a day
On the land
Where red and green bickered
Let the white now prevail

Pray wake me not, desire



Pray wake me not, desire

The lightning that knocks is asking for me

In the bazaars of Hyderabad-Sarojini Naidu (question-answers)


Q. How does Sarojini Naidu convey a message in the poem 'In the bazaars of Hyderabad'

A. Sarojini Naidu wrote this poem during the time of India's struggle for independence aiming to promote the boycott of foreign products.

      In this poem, Sarojini Naidu artfully describes the products made by the Indian craftsmen  and goldsmiths and myriad things sold by vendors, flowergirls, pedlars and fruitmen. Naidu wants people to boycott foreign products and provokes all Indians to consume indigenous products. She constructs a vivid, vivacious and colourful picture of the local bazaar of  Hyderabad in order to motivate her readers to visit indigenous markets. The hidden intent of the poem is not to give a visual description of the bazaars but to promote indigenous products amongst the citizens of the country. In context of the ongoing 'Swadeshi Movement', she suggests the boycott of British goods.

Instead of being preachy, direct and didactic, she simply presents a heart-rending portrait of Hyderabad's bazaars, showing its homeliness as opposed to the alienness of oversea goods.
