For his or any sake that might arise

Unless the fates intend on a collision

Comes in the world against the wishes of family,
Survives and thrives.
Goes to the school against the wishes of society,
Learns and leaves her imprints.
Enters in college against many odds,
Comes off with flying colors!
Acquires skills against the wishes of concerned authorities, 
Triumphs...Read More

Loudly our fears drum.

Battling to get Him to His kneels.

The Leaf
See! the leaf is playing
Dancing to the wind-swaying
Its beautifully green
Or is it a dream-screen?
Suddenly the sun is shining
The leaf is still dancing
Maybe its not feeling the heat
Maybe there is no heat
But now the leaf is turning yellow
Sun-heating it below

Cancer, a lingering tragedy
Yields struggling griefs and despairs
Plunges life in terrible tragedy
Like a sinking ship no one shares

Its ugly shadow strikes down
Chasing away all hopes and desires
Like Satan's terror deeds hound
And only agony a patient acquires

Those defective cells demeanors

ELECTRONS OF THE ETERNAL LIFE
Birth is  the origin
From there forth
Ageing starts,
It acquires a negative sign.
This ends up in a death,
Defined  as seventy years,
A hundred and ten,

Of the same scale 
With birth as...Read More

Who Pulls The Trigger


The degree of difficulty diminishes
conscience and justice dim
the fog of zealous denial.
A trigger is squeezed

Nurture deep fire as love now shows,
Opt thus to sire grandeur that grows;
Voice then conspires with light within,
Apt truth acquires a sacred flow.

Day by day, you are everything!
But, for few, you are nothing!
You can drive away accidents, 
You can make dread incidents!

When you stay with us in prowess,
We are fearful,
Even you leave us in hours,
We are tearful!

A mould-shaped symmetrical bowl
