Newspaper Blackout is an art and a form of poetry made by redacting newspaper articles with a permanent marker. So instead of starting with a blank page, I’ve grabbed today’s Hindu, a permanent marker and eliminated the words I don’t need. This is my first tryst with newspaper blackout poetry, my unique tribute to one of the biggest legends of Hindi cinema.

Puffing a cigarette
he passed a summer
he was awake.
he passed conversations of chaos, violence and death,
to an evening in the same spirit
his (many) loves swooning,
now appeared a shadow of his former self
he passed nostalgia
memories of living.
