POLS OF AHMEDABAD: THE GATES THAT WELCOME ANIMALS – Shweta Jayasree

Shweta Jayasree, Anant Fellow, writes, “What makes the pols truly special, is the attitude of its residents towards their voiceless neighbours. The first roti prepared in their kitchens is reserved for the cows and dogs meandering through the lanes. The tribes of monkeys that are allowed to reside in some of the abandoned buildings are welcomed on the terraces every evening and are served food. Some residents even have special tins of biscuits reserved just for them. To ensure the continuity of this practice of nurturing animals, children are trained to mingle with the birds and animals from a young age. Perhaps, what has compelled the development of such a harmonious relationship, is the religious and cultural values of the pol residents.”

A Time Capsule to 2120 – Vinay Srivastava

Vinay Srivastava’s, a student of BDes, 2018-19, poem gives a poignant twist to the idea of point of view. Written in response to a prompt in the Introductory Creative Writing module “Point of View”, “Time Capsule to 2120” speaks to a “you” that is the future. This is a future where the carelessness of present-day humans has left the “blue marble” we call home unrecognizable. The melancholy “I” of the poem can do no more than count the losses.
