Catharsis -Unlock Your Talent & Creativity: POETRY by ARPIT GUPTA IRTS, AIR-300 CSE-2018!


Hello Friends,

You must be aware of the term ‘catharsis’. It is the process of releasing and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions.

Recently we have launched a new initiative by the name Catharsis -Unlock Your Talent & Creativity!

Today’s work is POETRY by Arpit Gupta IRTS, AIR-300 CSE 2018. He has written 3 thought-provoking poems at the time of corona, which represents the current situation.

The first poem is written in Bhayanak Ras, second in Veer Ras and the third poem is on issues faced by migrant workers.

Well done, Keep it up !!


About Arpit Gupta

Arpit Gupta is from Patiala, Punjab. He has appeared for CSE 5 times and every time he has qualified prelims and has written mains. He has given interviews in 2018 and 2019. Also, he will appear in this year’s interview when UPSC would resume it, after the lockdown.
He secured AIR-300 last year and was allotted Indian Railway Traffic Service (IRTS).

The first poem was written in ‘Bhayanak ras” or “fear” style of writing. It was about how coronavirus has impacted us.



This second poem is written in “veer ras” so as to provide a ray of hope that not everything is lost and mankind will get over this menace soon.

This is the 3rd Poem written keeping in mind the migrant crisis and the inhuman treatment meted out to them as reported by various news reports.


Be creative and find your catharsis in whichever form of creativity you are comfortable with. 

It could be anything- a song, a painting, a poem, a story, a dance performance, rangolis, jokes/humor, culinary skills, mimicry and whatnot. There is no limit to creativity. Just unleash and share it with everyone!
