The Triveni is a form of Hindi/Urdu poetry that I first came across when I was working with a great team of creative folk. It influenced me very much because of the beauty of this style.It is a poem comprising three lines, the first two lines themselves are enough to form meaning and context but the addition of the third line brings a contrast to the entire poem. You’ll know what I mean after you read a few.This is my attempt at adapting this form to the English language.

Ahh! I see you got here! Good to see you, and thank you my dear friend for directing these poor lost souls to this page. Now you need answers right? To what is Triveni? Wait a minute, I'll just copy-paste the description I used in my book...
The Triveni is a form of Hindi/Urdu poetry that I first came across when I was working with a great team of creative folk. It influenced me very much because of the beauty of this style.It is a poem comprising three lines, the first two lines themselves are enough to form meaning and context but the addition of the third line brings a contrast to the entire poem. You’ll know what I mean after you read a few.
This is my attempt at adapting this form to the English language, so sit back, relax and watch me stumble through this. Maybe grab a cuppa while you are at it.There will be some poems that have a small anecdote after them, a story that relates to it, or the story that gave birth to the poem. It may be a randomly connected passage. I hope you like these small pieces of prose sprinkled between these Triveni.
See! It's so easy with a copy-paste! For those who still stuck around... Triveni is a part of my heart, my soul that I have encased within its pages. So if you do buy one, you'll own a part of my soul and it will be a Horcrux. (Don't worry, mine come with trans rights.) The more you buy, the more Horcruxes you have in your possession (Simple math Ashu, duh...) But think how exciting it will be!!! (Blatant attempt at inciting you to buy more than one copy.)If you do like it, you can always tell me you did via Instagram and Twitter... If you hated it, I am sorry, I'll try to do better next time? But please don't hate it? Pretty please? Thank you!Now I know, the important question: How do you buy one?
I am sure my website wizardry friend will put boxes or links somewhere that will lead you to Amazon, and it will let you buy yourself, 1, 2, or many copies! (Another blatant attempt at inciting you to buy more than one copy.)Why buy multiple copies? Because Triveni is available in multiple different versions! Kindle eBook, B&W Paperback, B&W Hardcover, Full Colour Premium Paperback, Full Colour Premium Hardcover. (And they all have the same content!)
~ Also, you can fill the empty spaces with your own Triveni and/or drawings, so once it's full you can get another copy to do it all again!So if you have someone you love, You can buy yourself a premium hardcover and a B&W hardcover for them. If you have someone you love VERY much, you can buy yourself a premium hardcover and a premium paperback for them. If you love someone so much you are smitten by their very existence... then you can buy yourself a premium hardcover and a premium hardcover for them as well! (THIRD blatant attempt at inciting you to buy more than one copy.)I think I have rambled on enough, I'll let you decide which version you wanna buy... but thank you for spending time reading the words on my website. May your journey of reading many words in a day, continue with something more exciting and may you always read words that leave you happy, thrilled and utterly satisfied.Bye!

Fat. Poet.The End.That's who I am, but my friends say I should write more about myself here... so I am going to try. I am Indian, living in India, and also writing in India (sorry folks no astral projection here). I am following a set of pointers to write this bio because me writing one extempore will mean I go off on tangents and we end up talking about Dr Who and Harry Potter* for about 1000 words, and then you'll just go away from this page thinking, "yeah, that guy's weird AF."
(*: Just for the record: I love HP because it's my childhood, but I don't support JKR. Trans rights are human rights.)
So instead I'll talk about what inspired me to write: reading. That's it, no huge moment I knew I was Tolstoy incarnate or the torchbearer to Tennyson's legacy. I loved reading and then I wanted to tell the stories that those stories form in my head (I also love convoluted sentences, you have been warned). Ever since I was a kid, my family always encouraged me to read, and it helped me immensely.I got into writing because it was cool. I got into sharing my writing because like every good author who writes, and wants to share their work with the world, I also felt the insane need to shove my work in other people's faces and through sheer dumb luck, some people liked it. I became a clingy puppy and clung to them, and they somehow came to accept me as a friend. Y'all know who you are, and have no idea what it means to me, but thank you.
My ambition is to write more, read more, work, earn money, eat pizza once a month and not gain any weight from that. Oh! and also sell lots of copies of Triveni... Don't know what it is? I'll tell you in maybe the next section? I don't really know how this website works, and a good friend is helping, so she'll know better.
