Beauty


Beauty is everything
That touches the core
The partner’s love, the parents’ care
The workers joy, and the creators ahoy!

Beauty pervades the sweaty sinews,
Beatific smiles
And complex mathematics
When bestowed with an uncomplicated innocence
  
And the silence
Of connected solitude.
As it is decisive action
When delivered with lively compassion

Beauty, then, is in the transcendental clairvoyance,
Which whispers into our ears
When to embrace to our intuitive call
And when to numb our indulgent instincts.

And the joyous wisdom which
Accepts life’s fallibilities
And values the striving to soar  
Both, in the same slice of time

Well, beauty is all, that aids in our march
To unearth the simple inner truth
While, awaking and embracing inert cells and souls
And resonating with our pristine cosmic twin

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…

Picking the Winner – 2019

There are two sagas which will dominate the Indian psyche in 2019.One is the much awaited Cricket World Cup. The other is the magnum opus, the road to the gaddi in New Delhi. The CWC will be played out in England. The other will play itself out in the streets of India and social media (na, not TV channels – they don’t have any influence. TV anchors, espl. the ones in English channels, don’t need to take their jobs or themselves very seriously. The people who notice them or care for what they say do not count in Indian elections).
Without further ado, lets pick the winners first. My call, based on current mood in the country, probabilistically the person with the best odds of becoming the PM is Mr. Rahul Gandhi. Yes, it is him. Call him by whatever name you want. But game theory picks him to be ahead of others in the race to the gaddi. Probabilistically, though, of his becoming PM is well less than 50%.
Another shocker – and an ‘apparent’ contradiction to the above – the bloc which i…
