POETRY AND ITS IMPACT ON HUMANITY
Today the word poetry evokes images of love and sentimentality, but the term romanticism has a much wider meaning. It covers a choice of developments in art, literature, music, dance and philosophy, spanning the late 20 th and early 21 st centuries.
The romantics would not have used the term themselves and the label was applied retrospectively, from around the middle of the 20 th century. Man was born free in this virtual environment of real life but, everywhere he is in chains. During the romantic period major transitions took place in culture, as dissatisfied intellectuals and artists challenged the establishment.
Almost all the romantic poets were at the very heart of this movement. They were inspired by a desire for liberty, and they denounced the misuse of the poor.There was a highlight on the significance of the individual; a conviction that people should follow ideals rather than imposed conventions and rules. The romantics renounced the rationalism and order linked with the preceding clarification era, stressing the importance of expressing authentic personal feelings.
They had a real sense of responsibility to their fellow men: they felt it was their duty to use their poetry to inform and inspire others, and to change the humanity and their social attitude. Poet Rumpa Ray Ghosh believe in this theory on life and poetry of this time.

RUMPA RAY GHOSH’S INSPIRATIONAL POEM
( Inspired by 'Interstellar' by Christopher Nolan )
Stepped out of the Milky way
I started travelling with time
Having a distant view of cosmic dust
Entered the inherently unstable wormhole
To reach faster than the rays of light
Time travel was always there in my mind
So that I could reach some where
May it be a five-dimensional world
As our beloved green planet may turn inhabitable
Due to the intimidating conditions prevailing now
In absence of gravity I kept gliding and floating in a circle
Always apprehensive of being sucked and
Consumed by the darkness of black hole
Although this is an unending search
For a perfect habitat out in the galaxy
The dangerous future which might be faced
By this planet evokes unexplainable fear
And thrusts to the darkness of confusion
Curiosity and expectations may take this unique species far ahead
To discover an optimal planet for living in coming days...
© Rumpa Ray-Ghosh
