Keen Whispers

In the sweet darkness of the night
Like a jasmine you bloom into my sight
In your scorpion tails that sting me
Your ego is my passion

Why fritter away thy ingenious soul?
This darkness is transient
My words, powerless for thine temper
Let this be an impetuous tone

Arise my love, you know not
What lies beneath that cold scoff
Truth is sweet to behold
My heart beckons the best in You

Beneath the mask of your clan
I see a stupendous child
Yearning for freedom that comes
With the light of my eyes

Marks of woe shall never prevail
In your world of bright skies
Let me be the brightest rainbow
To ever shine in your world of splendor.

Paradox of Misery.

The world is full of paradoxes, more than that it is full of misery. Misery way beyond the comprehension of the ordinary man. That is the paradox. The small joys and wonders that we run after will surely come to an end as soon as the mind retrieves from that. But you would have conditioned your mind in a way that it wants it again. What if you dont get it or it doesnt give you the same joy it used to? The misery starts. This can be applied for all the material possessions in the world. The world has a set of laws and no one can transgress it. But it is foolish to term it as fate and relax a bit. Your fate is in your own hands.

Consider the case of a pregnant woman. Her family will rejoice. All of them will be carried away by the same fact. This is indeed very nice and it should be that way. But what if, by the oddest of chances they turn out to be unsuccessful parents? Every child is unique and some may take a whole life time to understand certain characters of a son or a daughter. B…

Ode to the Sky

Heavens into stars, a vibrant constellation
The sky is just with no discrimination
A flight of stairs into heaven
Words fail in thy haven
The sun, the moon, the stars all freed
By your beauteous space where the creed-
Of joy and happiness way beyond
The worlds of birds and there abound;
The mighty pillars of god
The heavens be thy sod.
Dream on young angelic princess
With my words I shall caress
And build a world wondrous to behold
In the depths of my heart you I shall hold.

For the Lost Soul.

For the lost soul, my love
Plead insanity, I bow-
Down to thine might
Took me away once in a flight
Above and o'er the setting sun
I fall into the dark abyss, I run;
Away from you, into the hands of a few
Who lifts me up like a drop of dew
Eternal sunshine awaits you, my love
Forever and away from me, my dove.
See me now for I will be gone
Like a receding tide waiting to be born
Again with temptable might in bones
You shall emerge in different tones.

Divided Self.

What is personality? It is derived from the word 'persona' which literally means a mask. People with great personality are people who wear a thick mask. What are we hiding from? Why do we constantly divide ourselves to suite the needs of others' and destroy our own selves? Be bold and face life with dignity. Bravery is not jumping out of an aeroplane or jumping in-front of a moving train. A person who has controlled his/her brain is a brave person. The Sanskrit word dharyam  means a person who has controlled his/her brain and it is translated as bravery.

Never humiliate anyone, at the same time, never be humiliated. Everyone loves themselves the most. The fact whether it is a boon or a bane is debatable. If this much is clear, how can anyone say that they love their child/mother/wife/husband the most. If anyone says that, be sure that its a lie. Life is all about struggles. Be it a struggle within you or a struggle amongst your peers. Even if you come out of that, we have…

Supernatural

I have just finished watching "The Conjuring" and they claim it to be a true story.I don't want to appear skeptical and say that its not. It would be a total disrespect for the efforts of the exorcists both abroad and inside the country. So that leaves us with a question. Does God and the devil exist? No would be the answer. I am not being self contradictory by making such a statement. 'Isha Vasyam Idam Sarvam' This is the very first verse of The Ishavasya Upanishad, which means cover up the whole universe in terms of GOD. So the whole world becomes god and even the devil will be god. If you completely understand this concept, then its unnecessary to read all the scriptures, but sadly this cannot be explained more that this as it is to be experienced and not told, which is impossible.

Then what are these supernatural occurrences?  I wouldn't say that it is god, indeed it is the devil. But one thing that we must understand is the power of our minds. The mind…

Superhumans.

Nietzsche's description on superman stuck me with wonder initially. It was with almost perfection that he described the status of such men of power. The feminists would have an argument on this view because it is super 'men' and not women. That is why I have given the title as 'superhumans' and not just supermen. Nietzsche's idea is that men can attain a status way above the so called ordinary men. This is a very high state indeed but according to his principle these men are born with such qualities. People who are born as 'ordinary' also can attain this status through incessant work. I shall give some of my own example for such human beings. We say Sachin Tendulkar is the god of cricket in India. Indeed he is a god of cricket. Some other examples would be Charlie Chaplin as god of comedy and Marlon Brando as god of acting. But if you take a closer look, there are others too who will fall into this category.

Swami Vivekananda was a very talented person…
