Vyloppilli Sreedhara Menon’s poem(vishukkani) this poem about his childhood experiences of vishu festival and his very first collection ‘Kannikkoythu’.

Your brother was busy in errands at your family house
And I was idly reading in veranda
Suddenly someone hid my eyes from behind
And I turned wondering who that might be
