“The last hug”

The morning sunshine illuminating the day,

You are close to me; I can feel my heart sway,

Your unclosing depth on my eyes did stay

Thy arms clasped me, oh! I wish I can live forever this way

 

The darkness of the night I felt again,

In a sea of tears sailing in my forlorn main,

The sun behind the cloud, light still to come,

The drowsy flower, waiting for the breeze to hum.

 

Your thumping little bird is with me here

I live ‘for’ it with lots of love lots of care,

Slits of light gives me such a joy,

O god, how will I bear the whole sky!

 

Lots of desires sand lots of thrash passes my way,

But I move towards you, bound, never to sway

For the passions of this world, a normal shrug

Just waiting, and craving, for the re-creation of the last hug.

“the breeze today”

“There is something about this breeze,

playful, calm and peaceful.

which tells you to be silent, feel

dance to the rustle, with steps graceful”

 

“for one more time, you feel your breath,

for one more time, you know you are alive.

for one more time, the music divine 

sings in your ears, anecdote of thine”

IF I WOULD HAVE BEEN A PAINTER

the flickering of the sleepy stars,

and the arrival of the new day.

The silent, still, crimson clouds,
have left me nothing to say.

If i would have been a painter,
I would have painted the colors,
the joys of the morning,
the hues of the lovers.

Just then a lightening struck across the sky,
Brightening the night’s memories in my heart,
A group of birds, wings open, turned by,
to embrace me, this new day, this new start.

“The un-tuned instrument”

 

Even the best of all music can become a monotone if played for a long time. Similarly, even the hyper active individuals at times can feel a distinct monotone encroaching the sides of the surface of their being. Everything becomes slow and slurry and it seems like treading under deep waters. At most of the times people don’t realize it, because it feels as something has gone amiss with the tune of the instrument playing the rhythm of life.

Everyone faces such problems, or at least most of us, the question is, can we do anything to avoid it? Is there absolutely no method to bring the slightest of ripples in this monotonous life?

Let me try to answer the questions one by one. First, can we avoid it? The answer is yes we can. If we know beforehand that something like this is about to happen in our lives. But everyone live their lives for the first time, and experience is the comb that nature gives us when we become bald so life cannot be planned always. To not experience such life, try living your life low. Simply talking, life is just like a succulent, sweet fruit. One can either savor the sweetness at  one go or else you can keep on living the dream slowly, yeah, the sweetness will obviously be lesser but it will last much longer. Your life is always your choice, so decide wisely.

Secondly, can we bring ripples to already stagnant life? Yes, but requires hard work, and first of all realization. Sit down and think, that are yon really living your life… soon you will see the ripples! J

“The story of the tied CAT”

Image

Science has developed. The world has blown off all the boundaries and is taking huge leaps and bounds toward development with the every single moment that passes by. And in this din, the existence of god is forgotten.

Is it so? The answer to question is very simple. People who call themselves educated say they are non believers and people who prefer being in-educated believe in god in their own crude way.

                Well, beliefs and superstitions are both born in the same way. Coincidences. Let me give you an example.

“Once upon a time there was a sage, yeah the one with long beard, living in mountains and taking a bath in the ‘dreadfully cold’ holy waters every morning. Well, however foolish looking he may seem to you he was quite famous in his area, perhaps you may say ‘people around there were uneducated!!’ One common morning, after completing his daily chores he set out for the Yagya. A kind of worship in which a fire is lit in the center and hymns are chanted all day sitting around.

                There was a cat that too lived in the area and was at that present moment, was taking a good nap. The loud voice of the sage awakened it from its deep slumber and it went out to enquire about the happenings. It saw the Yagya, the bright waving fire and went near to check what it was clearly awed by its magnificent brightness and sonority.

                The sage saw it, and picking a nearby pebble shooed it away!

The cat was annoyed and it returned again to persue its crazy goal of know what that bright, wavy shiny thing was and was shooed away yet again.

It got angry and attacked the sage, who finally getting annoyed picked up a rope caught the cat and tied it to a nearby tree so that it cannot disturb him anymore.

There was a man-a foolish man walking nearby. When he crossed the Yagya site and saw the cat tied , he was surprised and ran with his hands waving shouting “holy God, save us!”. In the village people saw him asked what the matter was. And he said, “we all have been performing our Yagya’s wrong. We had to tie a cat for it to be completed; the gods are going to be very angry!!!! I saw the saw now!” people were struck by this fact. Many went to check the sage other didn’t even bother, they just god hold of a cat somehow and tied it to a nearby tree and performed a Yagya!

“This story, the story of the tied cat” tell us something very interesting. First of all it teaches us how superstitions are born. Secondly it asks us question, do we really know the background stories of what we believe or are we just like the villagers who lived near the “CAT”!
