Thank you for such an enthusiastic response to our first contest. We now know for sure, there are many nature lovers out there who can put their feelings in verse and do it well. 

For our poetry contest on the topic NATURE, we received numerous entries in both English and Hindi. Know we love them all, but  the winning entry is that of Shantanu Verma. Congratulations!

Shantanu wins an exclusive India’s Endangered T-shirt and an e-certificate. Also, his excellent thoughts on Nature are being shared here. 

We also received many other entries that were equally commendable. We would especially like to recognise Priyanka Acharya and Atul Ambavat for their beautiful thoughts in poetry. Keep it up both of you!

Priyanka and Atul will also receive an India’s Endangered T-shirt and an e-certificate. 

As promised, here is the winning entry by Shantanu Verma,

 Nature’s Miracles


I like the morning noise,

The twitters, chats and choo-choo,

It’s the noise that sings to me,

Whose melodies I can’t memorise,

But I still wish to hum along.


I like that golden orb,

That spreads its arms like a loving father,

And gifts everyone his warmth,

I can never be as generous,

But I can always aspire.


I like the sparkling stars,

The glittering, twinkling gallery,

It’s the sign of unknown worlds,

That may be too far just yet,

But never unreachable.


Nature’s miracles astound me,

They cast a spell…they teach,

I may not be listening all the time,

But when I do take heed,

They always have something wise to share.
