Fiery Love

Love knows no boundaries
Fire it is, engulfs all and sundry
Illuminating, providing warmth
Generating heat 
Breaking the myth
Burns and destroys only.

No, fire in love fires the passion
Purifying and killing the toxins
Burning ill will, hatred and malice
Helping  other elements 
Overcome anxiety and ailments
Of body, heart and soul as well.

Fire of love, power personified
Transforming perceptions wrong
Of violent ways into non-violence
Like fire burns, creating a new substance
Radiating light of knowledge
Burning ignorance

Invoking movements flowering with grace
Converting matter into non-matter
Bringing peace and harmony
In a jiffy
Fire of love brings glow and colour
Fire I am, love I am.

चतुष्पदी (Quatrain)-23

2121     2112    2222    1222    1222

हुस्न संग सीरत गर ना हो ,उस क़हर से दिल को लगाना क्या ?

जिस सहर में' साजिश ज़ाहिर हो, उस सहर से दिल को लगाना क्या ?

हर सुबह उजली होती है मधुमास सी हर रात भी तो नहीं'

गज़ल के मिसरों में मर्म' ना हो ,उस बहर से दिल को लगाना क्या ?

Husn sang seerat gr naa ho us kahar se dil ko lagaana kya

Jis sahar mein saajish jaahir ho us sahar se dil ko lagaana kya

Hr subah n ujlee hoti hai madhumaas see hr raat bhi to nahi

Gazal ke misron mein mrm naa ho us bahar se dil ko lagaana kya.

Tum pavitr devi swroop
Tum poojy dawa anuroop
Sevn kar kshmta vridi 
Ma sakshaat pr niroop.

A Grandmother (On International Women's Day)

On International Women's Day

A Grandmother
Wearing the barked face, she searches for her eyes
to read her destiny written somewhere on the wall
invisible from her.
Creates ripples of laughter sans dentures
she is not the one, to mind
like a banyan tree, she stands tall
to give shelter to each and every kind.
Branches broken, leaves blown away
yet happy is she
as seeds grow and transmigrate
into flowers and fruit laden trees.
Though beyond her reach now, far away.
like a banyan tree, she still stands
weathering the storms of the time
providing shades to guests to take rest
and to enjoy in her nest from time to time.
Cruel is the time but she has seen the worst
will power sustains her mind and soul
not the body though,
now lives with anxiety and agony
time not far off to wear new clothes
and to say good bye to her uncaring progeny.
Soon she will also feel the heat like that banyan tree
from the builders, land mafias
and insensitive rascals of her own
bulldozing the very roots of hers
not waiting for her natural nirvana
only to reap the benefits.

Live-in relationship /My article in Business Sandesh

Bad dreams have now become almost reality. Live-in relationships, though in its infancy is yet alarming. An off- shoot of western culture has been taking roots in India and there is no doubt that it has spread octopus like tentacles mostly  in urban India.  Equating it to a terrorist attack on the institution of marriage in India may not be out of box theory.

The observation made by Hon’ble SC, while hearing the famous case of South Indian actress Kushboo in Mar 2010, that pre-marital sex and live-in-relationship could not be construed as an offence,  has in fact boosted the fast growing tendency to have a live-in relationship amongst our young generation. A boy and a girl living together, without any social or legal sanctions, as flat mates/hostel mates/ PG mates is fast becoming norms with our western minded, music-fun loving, junk food eaters. With the waning of family stability, opening of various avenues of employment opportunities to boys and girls within and abroad, open mindedness, and with rising graph of economic growth, youth population of urban India has become more adventurous in their relationships with opposites sexes. Family heads are putting their heads together to ward off this intruding evil in the lives of their children but they are unable to restrict the activities of their wards once they become mature enough to decide their future life.

It is the thinking of orthodox people of India that social ethics, family honour, moral values are getting devalued with the advent of the concept of live-in relationship. Can we really call these people orthodox ? Is our institution of marriage  fast becoming redundant?  The question itself is intriguing .

We already have three types of marriage.
A)        Arranged marriage :- Totally arranged by parents of both sides.
B)        Arranged but  love marriage :- Couple in love but marriage arranged with the  consent of both parents.
C)        Love marriage :- Without consents of both parents and getting married in court overtly or covertly......

These three types of marriages have either social or legal sanctions which is absent in live-in relationship.  It is also observed that the rate of divorces has also registered an ascending graph in B & C type of marriages though cases of divorces in type A marriages also show increasing trend but to much lesser extent. Moreover it becomes hell for a girl particularly if she is living with a male friend and enjoying sex too outside marriage norms.

Where does the term live-in-relationship fits in our children’s lives cannot be gauged. Younger people take their parents as old -fashioned, set-minded and socially irrelevant duds as they fail to fall in line of their thinking. They feel live-in-relationships will bring down the cases of divorces & caste bias. It will give them  an opportunity to gauge compatibility of each other if they stay together for a longer period before they come to the decision of marrying each other.  So far so good as It helps indulging couples to understand each other better over a longer period of time and think of marrying each other if so desired by both the partners. There are no liabilities on each other. No demands and pressures. Household luxuries/responsibilities and financial liabilities are equally shared on the basis of equality. Compatibility becomes the hall mark of this type of relationship. Non- compatibility over a time period gives both parties a chance to change their partner.

Their point of view is understood due to the change in perception of having a life partner in present scenario and nature of adjustment with the times by the modern parents. It is also understood  that instead of saying ‘ marriages are made in heaven’ we should now say ‘marriage are through live-in-relationships’  But million dollar question is CAN THEY REMAIN ALOOF FROM GRATIFYING EACH OTHER SEXUALLY while living in. It is highly improbable. A big NO. Fire attracts fire and cannot be doused by fire. Resultant pregnancies are either terminated for fear of attracting social backlash or the child has to live with the tag of illegitimate in case partnership is not legalised by marriage. Living-ins may provide a chance to be an independent in personal likes or dislikes yet girls are made to suffer more than a boy in India. It is a established that living in relationships not only bring harassment and insecurity to girls in India but emotional breakdowns also become frequent ruining the life of a girl involved.

The society also does not sanction such relationships whatever the law may say.  Why is it then honour killings are taking place openly now? Why suicides are on the rise amongst the young unwed mothers? Why abandoned fetuses are found every now and then?  We still abhor the idea of westernised thinking  of the concept of leave one, take one.  We need to re-educate our children about pros and cons of such an adventure, our traditions, our culture, our ethos, our moral and ethical values, our social obligations, our sanskars  which they have lost in the age of TV soaps, internet, smart-phones, movies, clubs, bars etc.

Or  should parents/society allow them to say, “ this is our life, allow us to live as we want.?  Matter will always remain debatable.

Emptiness in me creates spirituality

beyond the realm of physical entity

creating a space, for my vibrations

breaching vastness of space and distance

reaching out to my beloved

I so cherish to mingle with

an invisible binding force

eternal and never perishable

thriving in my body

when I create a sound ‘AUM’

humbled I feel

as I become sound and distance both.

Sound in space, piggy back distance

distance, carrier of the sound

a link between Atman* and HIM**

and between

jeevatama # and Paramatma ##,

I become aakassh, the sky

so eternal, ethereal and so subtle,

the sound that invokes me spiritually

through vibrations travelling to universe

pushing me nearest to my beloved

uplifting and mingling with Paramatma##

showing me the path

the highest and the brightest

giving an spiritual experience

in luminous emptiness

through the cavities working wonders

while feeling the presence of

only THE ONE, my beloved.

द्विपदी -11 (Couplet-11)

होती थी न गुज़र, हमारे दीदार के बिना
पहुंचे जो हम, वे नज़रें चुराने लग गए.
(Hoti thi na guzar, hamare deedar ke bina
Paunche jo hum nazaren churane lag gaye)

Ever waiting eagerly for my appearance
when confronted, she tried to glance away
