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.

Tandava Nritya or the Dance of Destruction/Creation


Blog Posted:2/17/2011 4:05:00 AM

Tandava Nritya or the Dance of Destruction/Creation


The Tandava or celestial dance of Lord Siva the supreme God of creation and destruction & Tandava Nritya is extremely thrilling and charming, exquisitely graceful in pose, rhythm, and intensely piercing in effect.


Nritya or Tandava is an inseparable, sacred movement of the various limbs of the body in accordance with the inner divine Bhava* (A pose or Expressions of feelings). Nritya is a divine science.


In an effort to explain the beauty & elegance of this beautiful Indian Dance Tandava Nritya, I have written a small epic in the name of ‘When the Earth was in danger.’ I am hopeful that some of my friends on Poetry Soup would like to add their views about the Tandava Nritya or any such dances of this kind elsewhere in the world. I would welcome your comments or additions, if any about this beautiful Dance form from your part of world.


They are also welcome who knows more about the story behind the Tandava Nritya and may like to add their views to enrich knowledge about this highly elegant dance from India.


'When the Earth was in danger'

    Thank you Dr. Ram for your kind and precious comments. It is heartening to know that you tried 'Kathakali' another beautiful dance form from India in your young days. Love for music and dance continues to live and keep us young, until the last of our existence on this Earth. It is the mind, which matters more than the body. Hope you would like the epic as well. Ravindra

    The Indian philosophy is based on the simple theory that death is also necessary for the birth of a new life. Hindus believe that the body is perishable but the soul is immortal and it never dies. Our Raagas ( classical music) is also based on the changing time and seasons. As for as the Third eye is concerned. It is the most powerful silent feature of our body, which normally remains in sleeping form but can produce tremendous amount of energy and heat to the extent of an atomic explosion. Ravindra

    Thank you Linda my friend for your precious words and always-kind comments. The Tandava Nritya is still one of the most beautiful and difficult dances, which leads to a kind of different rhythm both to its performer as well as to those who watch it. The body language remains one of the most eloquent things to watch and get lost. Ravindra
