The pandemic year claimed lives,
You and I were not among them.
People are swaying to new normal jives,
You and I are definitely among them.
Shall we or shall we not get the new vaccine?
Covid Warriors are facing a Hamlet dilemma –

But it’s time to welcome the New Year
Let us be happy and grin from ear to ear.
Have we come up with resolutions to look before and after
Anyway do let’s pray that the New Year
Shouldn’t be like the one of the Corona –
Yes, it’s been the Corona Year
None can deny the fact
Yet living’s become just a lovely act.

The scenes are there in every household –

Nor can you stop it from going.

Marooned in the sea of our memories,
For tomorrow being just another day,
We embrace the new Year with cakes n’ confetti –
Folks! The show must and will go on.
So here’s wishing you all a very very


For Haimanti, the journey of writing began with sending articles to newspapers, mainly The Statesman. Having an English Literature background was a big help indeed. Writing for blogs, and contributing articles and short stories paved the way ultimately for the publication of IN LOVING MEMORY (Rupali Publications of Kolkata, 2015) and THE CIRCLE OF LIFE & OTHER TALES (Locksley Hall Publishing, 2018). Creative writing, which started as a hobby, soon became a passion. She believes, if readers get pleasure out of her writings all her efforts have been worthwhile.
