Pranayee Gupta Rachamalla (1997 - ) is a promising young poetess from Telengana, India. She is a forensic science student, Vedic Maths teacher and acupuncture - acupressure therapist. She started writing poems at the young age of 12. She loves nature and is in turn inspired by it. Her interests include painting, gardening, poetry, chess and Mathematics. “I wish I were Heartless” is a fascinating poem that explores the heart-brain / reason-passion dichotomy. The speaker desires to be heartless not because she is rational and unpoetic; she believes that it is infinitely better to be heartless than be heir to heart-aches and heart-breaks. The poet finds delight in the fact that heart cannot think.
