Nothingness....

Can I not live
Not overtlyprotecting
A distant non existent
Picture perfect future

Surrendering
The simmering insolvable puzzles
To the invisible cosmic wisdom
To take over from here

Just live in the moment
As goodly as I can
While I embrace my queer indulgences.
And I just dream; another distant dream.

this poem is the product of multiple iterations....in the process the initial thoughts might hv slithered out of the mind....and a new meaning may have taken over...maybe when i read it again..i ll feel the essence of the initial thought is lost somewhere...dunno....am actually a bit confused....so easy to loose one's objectivity when one tries to evalute one's own poems...crazy struggele....

cheers!!!!

ps - more or less agreeing on this version....think may be a good idea to remove blind faith post...feb 14, 2010 Parlakhemundi

Dura Pahada Sundara [Far-away Mountains are Beautiful]

I realize how seriously we take a place we visit specifically to see it – an event in itself, and how much taken for granted are those places that we can hop in an out with regularity and ease.

Interestingly I had never wrote or thought of writing about Puri or Konark or Cuttack. Places for which reams have been and can be written. The history, the culture, the cuisine and the local chutzpah [espl. Puri / Cuttack]. Even more interestingly, I have never pondered enough on these places and their unique niceties to have them simmering in my cerebral consciousness. They are somewhere deep there sedimented at best; and at [likely] worst, I do not have the desired ammunition to do justice to write anything substantial. Probably, I will have to resort to the frivolous flourish of the might of the language as a cover.

A point to note - I have never seen the Bali Yatra [Cuttackis don’t faint please]. The Puri beach and temple I have always felt is my backyard [so had the taken for granted attitu…

For a religion or a product, an open door policy will work best

In the recent past, we have been witness to catchy rhetoric with regards to religious conversion. Strident calls to banning conversion, Ghar Wapsi, Love Jihad et al. I would like to stick my neck out and say almost everyone, right (‘bhakts’), left (‘liberals’), centre (government), has missed out on the most balanced perspective.
A person has a right to choose a city and country different from his parents, he or she can also change his or her name given by the parents, what is wrong with the person choosing a religion different from he or she was born with.
Religion is an experiential product. Products thrive when they are responsive to customer feedback. We go to five-star hotel to get pampered, if we are unhappy with the service we may not return. If the hotel has a problem with service quality, then over a period of time it will lose substantial business; then either it will buckle up based on customer feedback or will go out of business. That is exactly relevant for a religion too.…
