Bloggers PhotoA brief introduction:

Born in 1950. I have done my post graduation in English Literature. In my childhood days I was living very close to a beautiful forest with a lovely lake called ‘Allen Forest’. I used to sit in that forest for hours in the calm and cool atmosphere of that lake and in those memorable days.

I started conceiving my first poem in that Allen forest and lake itself, which I use to visit almost every day, often with friends and sometimes even alone also in my childhood and early young age days. In the field of Art I had made my initial paintings in oil colors but they are very few. I composed my first Hindi Poem in 1971 when I was posted in a sugar factory. During that time I have written few small philosophical poems only. My love for photography started oozing around 1985 when I purchased my first Yashica Camera.

My initial pictures remains concentrated on my family members and scenic beauties. In between 1971 to 2001 I was too busy with my job first with British India Corporation and then with Government of U.P as I was educating people in Foreign Trade on national level.

During this period from 1991 to 1999 I made extensive travelling from East to West and from North to South of my country almost twice in a year, which gave me a unique chance to study and understand life and nature both in general which reflects in my Poems and Photos everywhere. In 1999 I took VRS and joined a multinational company ‘Organic India’ earlier known as IITC as its Executive Director, but left it in 2001 and started my own work of educating people in foreign trade.

t was only around 2007 when I bought a new mini digital camera that Photography began to show its colors in my Photos. In 2009 I became a member of Poetry Soup accidentally, while surfing the net and that was a turning point of writing more and more poems almost every day. Even I translated some of my father’s works also on Poetry Soup. Later on in 2011 when my son gave a gift of Canon Camera that I started enjoying Photography and these Photo Poems started forming shapes in my works.Song writing emerged, when some of my poetry Soup friends commented on my poem finding some of my poems more like a Song.The seed is there in me and even in my family member’s blood, because of my mother, who was a great musician, singer and because of my father, who wrote many Poems, Epics, novels and even dramatic verse and some songs also. Because of my other family members love for music, right from my childhood as I used to hear my favorite songs many a times.

The company of a wonderful forest (Allen Forest) and the lake with the company of River Ganges, which flows right in front of my house at a little distance with the most beautiful surroundings of Agriculture University quite near to my place have played great roles in shaping me what I am today.

Incineration of Indian Love God Madan Cupid


Blog Posted:4/21/2012 10:20:00 AM
Incineration of Indian Love God Madan ( Cupid )
Dedicated to my late father, who wrote the original Hindi work long back.

Is the new series originally written by my late father in Hindi way back around 1965. The story related to Indian Love God Madan ( Cupid) was got burnt by cosmic fire of Lord Shiva, when he tried and disturb him in His meditation because of demons attack on the Gods.

In order to keep many of you more informative about different names and terms used in this Poem as per the mythological story and as per story conceived and written by my late father I will try to make such terms and references explained in the bottom of this series.

I would also like to have an apology for not present on PS more regularly mainly because of my eye problem which often get aggravated when I sit more on computer. I would still try to be on this lovely site as much as it would be possible for me.

I am hopeful that this new concept and the story would be liked by all those, who always find interest in exploring and knowing the wonders and beauty of other cultures and beliefs.

With best wishes and love,

Ravindra
