Shefalika Verma has written two outstanding books in Maithili; one a book of poems titled “BHAVANJALI”, and the other, a book of short stories titled “YAYAVARI”. Her Maithili Books have been translated into many languages including Hindi, English, Oriya, Gujarati, Dogri and others. She is frequently invited to the India Poetry Recital Festivals as her fans and friends are important people. I do not have to give more introduction of her as her achievements speak for themselves.
As and when lonliness of graveyard
gets down in my eyes
blood of heart solidify into Ahilya
in the jungle of hunger
lotus bismeared with blood smiles
my inner becomes injured
with so called civilization and culture
a question ariss in my mind
only a question
to be asked from Janak
why did you send so much gifts
you threw away the women folk
into burnning fire of dowry
by even presenting several kingdoms
why did you give birth to dowry system ??
My mind haunts
with a question
again to be asked from Sita...
why did you agree to undergo
agnipariksha praposed by Ram
being yourself possessed with power
by accepting banishment to forest
thus giving birth to silence system
why did you put female life
under pains and sorrow ??
see the drama of RAMRAJ
dhobi is present in every house
and Ravan in every street
but not visible is RAM
now a days dont know
where Ram has gone
where Ram has gone.........................
