I agree with the "wow".  Amit, you are brilliant!  I am a thinker who appreciates so much the strong clear thinking that your poetry expresses, and is based on simple observations and truths, expressed fearlessly.  I would be honored to share with you, and meet you someday.  Although I live in Hawaii, I have also lived in India.  Your village is not familiar to me, but I have spent time in the Yamuna River running alongside Delhi, way back in 1970 when I was a college student very much in love with a young Indian girl.  The Yamuna was strong flowing but always brown; I don't imagine it has gotten cleaner.  We humans still have much to awaken to, to live in harmony with this planet that supports our lives.  Thank you for speaking, and so exceptionally well.  I hear you very clearly.
