On Books, Writing, Editing, and More

A Starlet in Starbucks

An out-of-work actress

But a full-time waitress

That’s Rita doing the coffee-shop hustle

She turned up in Mumbai

With its hustle and bustle

To become a screen goddess

But so did everyone else

And like all of them

She does the coffee-shop hustle

Until something better can work out

She lives on the edge of today

And works for a low pay

She lives on a prayer

In the old city square

Waiting for the pot of gold

At the end of her rainbow

She hopes it will come

Before she grows old
