Poets Printery: A Website with a Difference
The original article can be found here.
There are websites – and there are websites.
So really, what makes this one different? WHY this website?
One could try sales talk, I suppose. “This website is different because it has all these salient features….”
Really, so what’s different about that!! Besides, that’s not it at all….
When a doctor looks engagingly into your eyes and says quite convincingly that medicine and art and poetry can coexist, what choice do you have? You can either wonder if he was going to stitch up your innards together, or smile at his innocence. Or realize he knows what he’s talking about – the synchrony that holds the whole as one unit.
Well, you have here a doctor who’s telling you just that. Not just telling you, but proving it. Not just proving it, but living it.
“If music can provide relief to postoperative pains compared to a control group, surely there should be a way to diminish a disease and increase one’s immunity by finding certain colours and certain thoughts to the extent of awakening the subconscious mind to find just that reprieve to fight another assault of a disease?”
One one hand, he’s an orthopaedic surgeon who can fit out a perfect prosthetic. And then, he does a right about, and with a few skimpy sketches and a splash of colors, will create for you a whole new world to live in, right down rainbow land. Just when you’re looking around in wonder at the blues and greens and yellows, he’ll point out to a distant place and say, “that’s Gwalior, my hometown." And proceed to re-create for you a mirage – of old forts and palaces. Of corridors and shadows and silhouettes. Of girlish laughter, long tresses and anklets….of whispered words of love and heartfelt promises, of heated kisses and fervent lovemaking, wrapped up in a package of poetic outpourings.
Are you as confused as I am? How exactly does he manage to keep the goriness of toying around with blood and bones from mingling with the resplendence of his artistic urges? Where then does he store his love poems, caught so deftly as they swim along the current of his thoughts, presenting them to the world as heady mixes of passion?
Intrigued? Interested? You said it!
So now you know WHY!!
So then, step in – think, feel and share the beautiful world of the one and only Dr. Amitabh Mitra.
