UNVEILED by Pragyan Behera



  • a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction.

When someone asks me, why being a dancer is so vital to me? I cannot help but smile. I wonder what they expect in response. Would you look at a bird and question its flight? Birds do not know otherwise. Neither do I.

The life of an artist is an odyssey into the unknown.


Hidden is the art of man,

who nurtures the sown.

Not for the materials,

but for his own.

Hidden is the beauty of art,

that conforms not.

A manifestation of the soul,

no shape, no form.

Hidden is the meaning of beauty,

on the inside of the heart.

Seems an expression,

no wonder possess few.

Hidden is the quest for meaning,

because roses make our bed.

Breathe and sleep,

ignorance makes for bliss.

Hidden is the destination past the quest,

enlightened do not last.

The blessed with curiosity,

no bread in the body.

Hidden is the peace once felt,

sweat that pays off.

Clenched is the joy,

in paper hued green.

Hidden is the art of knowledge,

realizing all lies within.

Madness deviates the genius,

he who built the pyramid.
