In Search of Peace

IndiBlogger Badge
Peace, peace, peace
man in search of peace
here, there,everywhere
like one searching for his gold chain
even while wearing it!

Man searches in vain
for the elusive peace
groping in the dark
running from pillar to post

while all the while
it was available
already there
deep within him!

Men of the world

IndiBlogger Badge

Amaravati Poetic Prism 2017 ( International Multilingual poetic Meet) was organized by the cultural centre of Vijayawada & Amaravati on 11th & 12th November 2017 at Vijayawada. This poem was recited by me on the occasion.

I will scratch your back
you scratch mine
together we will scratch many more
become rich, successful and famous!

Else we will be end up like Chandrababu
the Tamil film comedian, satirist
who sang “don’t know what this world’s about
something is happening. Oh, It’s a mystery…
don’t know what this world’s about….”

So come friend, hesitate not
the sky is the limit
for the world savvy
the sensible, intelligent beings
who know and play
by the rules of the game!

Dancing in the Rain

Dancing in the rain
is possible only if one is
not having a lot on the mind
not weighed down by heavy thoughts...

"so much work to be got done..
"'the dinner to be prepared.."
sometimes it is doubts and apprehensions
"Dancing at my age and in the rain at that ?..."

It is all about the moment
the miseries and doubts can wait
but not the moment
while the analysing, debating is going on
the rain comes and goes..
waiting for none!

So, if you want to dance in the rain
there is no choice....
you simply have to live in the now
just live in the  present!

A Lesson Beyond the Subject

IndiBlogger Badge

During the journey,
the ups and downs of life
I remembered, still remember
our English literature teacher at school
who taught us the distinction
between "calling attention" and "drawing attention"

"Calling attention" is relatively easy
use loud and colourful language
or even loud clothes, body movements
and presto, you have achieved your goal!

"Drawing attention" is a
different ball game altogether
it is a result of long term efforts
years of character building
developing personality, maturity,
and equanimity from the inside

As a parting shot, the teacher had declared
"Never call attention to yourself"
instead focus always on " Drawing attention" !

You may think, he hardly speaks,
interacts with people or that
she remains silent most of the time.. and so
"He is arrogant. She is vain"
Both may infact just be plain shy....

You may think that fellow never spends money
"Such a kanjoos, a despicable miser..."
He may be what he is
because of a difficult childhood

Relax....pause, count one to ten
before you pull that judgement trigger!

Life Line in Hand Astrology

IndiBlogger Badge
Crumbling foot over bridges
open manholes, pot holes on busy roads
polluted air and water
contaminated veggies and food stuffs
to top it all, apathetic unconcerned politicians...

If you are an Indian
and you are alive, thank the almighty
all credit to your strong life line!

A Little Better

IndiBlogger Badge
Become a little better yourself
forget the muck
the wrongs you see around
all that is wrong in other's scripts
just focus on your own script
on playing your part better
and lo and behold,
the world is already a better place!
