Ritam Upadhyay is a post graduate in English literature and works as a guest faculty in Govt. Arts & Science College at Ratlam, Madhya Pradesh. But her real place of work as a devotee and child of the Mother is the Auro Ashram at Ratlam. As an ardent seeker of ‘Beauty’ in its original pure and natural form, she paints, writes, sings and does all which can keep her in touch with Beauty and Delight.
India is not a mere piece of land. It is a Shakti, a power, a godhead. To this Shakti that is Mother India is dedicated this small poem in Hindi invoking the sacredness that is She. An English translation of the poem is also included.
