R. Lekha

Born at Kareelakulangara in Alleppey District in 1975. Works as a teacher in Govt. higher Secondary School, Kalavoor. Besides Poems, Lekha writes articles, patriotic songs, light songs and group songs for Cultural Meets. Her first collection of poems Ariyathe (Without Knowing) came out in 2005. Sri O. N. V Kurup writes in his felicitation to the book that Lekha has a natural talent to indulge in poetic creations. Her poems are rightly and highly imaginative. There is an effort to untie the hard knots entangled in the relation between “You and Me” in many of her poems. “Distances play hide and seek between us. My book was her’s After reading it, It became mine and I her own” Thus we see a number of poems wherein comes the theme of “You and Me”. The experience of loneliness even in the company of another person is expressed in these poems. The poem 'Pakaram Tharamini' ('To Give in Exchange') taken from the book Ariyathe is included here. This poem devotes the inevitable moment of parting. The poet showers blessings on the beloved. “Beloved, let the holy ashes spread in your eyes Let kindness and calm sprout, when these glassy words fall in the corners of the heart. From where the rainbow has disappeared” Let me inscribe this last word ‘Thank you’”. The poet befriends the Fine Elements of nature -the constellation of stars, the Moon, the seasons and the flavours to intensify this moment of parting. This composition throws light into her wonderful poetic imagination.
