On World Poetry Day, we are proud to bring you, our very own in-house poets and poetesses, who blew our minds with their incredible haikus.
For the uninitiated, a haiku is a type of short-form poetry, originating in Japan. Known for the simplicity and directness of expression, these poems are usually three lines long. And they often focus on images of nature. Sounds simple right?
But wait till you read some of the haikus that BYJUites penned for our Haiku Poetry Contest. Packed with powerful imageries, the winning entries will make you pause and think!
Take a look:
Debajyoti Majumder, Content Development Associate, pens this beautiful piece on falling birch leaves.
Marketing Communications Manager, Karan Pillai talks about stars around us in this thought-provoking piece.
Vineeta Pant Joshi, Academic Specialist, writes a poem about herself and why she considers herself lucky.
But that’s not all! We have a few honorary mentions, who made it very close to taking the top spot.
The sea is an old friend.
When I miss her too much,
She visits me; on a rainy day.
Shakti Moudgil, HR Specialist
First glimpse of March, a
soft green bud bloomed from the
withered sprout of winter!
Marlene Machado, Software Development Engineer
From the evergreen rainforests to Deforestation,
From pellucid holy rivers and pristine air to Pollution.
Every chunk of our mother nature is insisting humanity “Save Me”.
Ankita Shrivastava, Academic Specialist
As storytellers, we remain anonymous
In creating our own nature through currents and keys
Developing our holographic narratives.
Oliver Benedict Franklin G, Biology Faculty
The clouds wept
Seeing the farmers’ sweat
The land yielded its kept.

Palash flowers bloom,
hugging the change, the flames
chase the coldness away.
Abhijeet Mukherjee, Manager Operations
Sard hawa ke jhokon ka, shakhon se guzarna zaroori hai
Har roz naye suraj ka phadon se ubharna zaroori hai
Iss neele aasman me unn safed badlon ka bikharna zaroori hai.
Ayaan Asif, Business Development Associate

Bidushi took a left turn from journalism and landed up in the corporate world. She is a foodie and considers eating good food amongst the greatest joys of life. Keen on travelling and exploring new places, Bidushi has spent the last four years of her life in three different Indian cities. But she has also learned that her bedroom is her happy place. Screens relax her greatly — whether it's watching a movie or a TV show or reading a riveting bestseller on her e-reader. A cheerful person, she prides herself on making friends easily. When not working, Bidushi can be found spending time with her parents, talking to her friends over a call, or browsing the internet for that one lipstick!
