Sitting in the last vestiges of
my childhood winter garden
Sound of coo-woo reverberates around.

The cry of koel
Reminds not only of Summers
But also of examination season
Of School and then College.

Of anxiety and trepidation
Sometimes panic,
That mind may go blank.

Was it fear of failure
Or of moving up one step
on the ladder of Life?
That unexplainable feeling…
When I look back today.
