Make America Trumpless Again - Singhasan Khali Karo, Donald Trump (A Tribute To George Floyd, Ramdhari Singh Dinkar) - Shomprakash Sinha Roy
Let's Make America Trumpless Again. This is dedicated to the memory of George Floyd, who lost his life in a despicable act of racial violence, and to the undying spirit of 300 million Americans, who stand united in the fight against this resurgent oppression. This poem was written by Ramdhari Singh Dinkar, an Indian wordsmith, who penned it down at a time when my beloved country was a colony of the British empire, and it’s an amazing coincidence, that we were a population of nearly 300 million at the time of its composition.

The Art Of Losing (A tribute to Elizabeth Bishop) - Shomprakash Sinha Roy
This one's a short episode, and it deals with the art of losing. It is a simple reading of one of my favorite poems of all time, One Art by Elizabeth Bishop. If you're someone like me who needs help in dealing with the concept of loss, this is for you. For those who prefer looking at the lyrics, they're included below, here in the description. "One Art" by Elizabeth Bishop The art of losing isn’t hard to master; so many things seem filled with the intent to be lost that their loss is no disaster. Lose something every day. Accept the fluster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. The art of losing isn’t hard to master. Then practice losing farther, losing faster: places, and names, and where it was you meant to travel. None of these will bring disaster. I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or next-to-last, of three loved houses went. The art of losing isn’t hard to master. I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster, some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent. I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster. —Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident the art of losing’s not too hard to master though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.
