Limpieza

Limpieza


Muffled! Hollowness of the soul;
Donkeys and Camels changed the world,
Logistics redefined today, they are old;
Horses reached Constantinople;
History re-written in gold;
Genghis the hunter – Bold!

Massacred in the name of pure blood,
The Camps putrefied for months;
Africa! Dry; the source of Nile's flood,
Verses are played with fonts;
History re-written in gold;
New stories unfold!

Tokubetsu KĊgekitai shaped war,
New world order in new avatar;
Today when human revolve around stars;
We see more barricades and bars?
History re-written in gold;
Vehement!!! Speed and Time Sold!

I received your letter today,
I can smell you in every word,
Can feel the emotion;
The last habitat in motion;
Wild rush and commotion!
History re-written in gold;
An old song – I am told!?

We are going!


We are going!

Horde some rations…few good books,
We are going;
Time your watch, shine your shoes,
We are going;
Dig your oil – buried under the soil,
Take it easy; feel the toil;
Destination marked, childhood parked;
We are going!

The maidan is crowded,
Guns loaded;
We are going!
Slogan from the crowd;
All the Gods are present,
Optimism crying for breath and loud,
Yes! We are going.
 
Song of the bird,
Song of the bird,
Son of the soil, Daughters too!
Imaginations personified – Who?
We are all blind without that light,
We are all doomed without right!
We are sold without an heir;
We sell water and tomorrow – air,
We buy happiness in all avatars;
We now realised that the sun is also a star,
Humanity in the distant unknown growing,
And we are going!

Selcouth


Selcouth
Today when the sun goes down and the moon rise,
Do not switch on the light,
Listen to the music of the night,
Do not switch on the light.
When your heart goes heavy and your mind fight,
Try resisting those tides,
In obscurity search for that pair of eyes;
Few of your childhood truth are now lies;
Do not switch on the light.

Your destiny is yet not surmised,
Are you not surprised?
Your astuteness may take you to glorious height;
Here you go…can you see the light?
Lost soul! Can’t you see the rising tide?
Love Bites!?
Tonight! Do not switch on the light.
Futile statistics;
Your tears are hope dried!

Your loneliness is not freedom,
You freedom is within this kingdom;
This kingdom – sold to the masters;
Behold!  Do not switch on the light,
Emancipation is the unknown dilemma of birth,
Hope – synchronised your step, your path,
That stray thought – Let it last;
Nurture with your soul – your heart;
Today - Do not switch on the light.

I am a man…


I am a man!
 
I am a man,
Flesh, blood and a brain;
I want to dance – Dance in the rain,
Unload and wash some of my pain;
I am a man!

I have just started – started a journey;
The Journey of Life!
I have a sight – foresight;
To reach that height!
I know the stain,
I am a man!

There is hope,
In the school but I am broke;
Life can be simple and insane,
Changing – Life can never be same,
Human life is a tale – You can tame!
I am a man.

My blood! My sweat! My space,
Are we in a race?
Do you care less?
Those Soul – Do not misplace!
Ah! You are also in the game;
I am a man…

Land of Rising Fun!



Absolution!
Don’t show your guns or draw that dagger,
Armagnacs! Again plundering lands…more baggers;
Nation is sick! Cannot be cured?
Commoners Weak! Should that be endured?
I walked in positive childhood,
Hoping a change with the old gone;
Today after eons – New also is stoned.

Mockery all around,
Sufferers home bound.
Roads depicted freedom till yesterday;
Now! Guarded by those wild hound.

I can see the last red turning black in the distant sky,
Will there be a sunrise tomorrow?
I can see silhouette of diminishing life,
Will they drust to return tomorrow!?
Back home there is more to borrow,
Though dry, they can learn to furrow!

Alaskan Storm breaking megabergs on the other side,
We are creating megabergs of hatred in our own hides;
Do not abase – the heart is heavy today;
You cannot abdicate but can rewrite on their slate.

Who should I join and whom to absolve;
Angry stomach creating hunger of the mind,
Please do not draw that line,
Let emancipation percolate, every society rhyme!

I Am Talking To You


I Am Talking To You

I embarked the last ship,
Passing through the storm of hope!
Do you know where this vessel goes today?
Did you notice the blood stains in the corner?
Yes! The newspaper has the story;
Innocent Life at stake and someone running for glory,
Oh! You could have saved a soul,
Yes! The man was old;
But happiness is never sold,
I know his grandchild…what was told?
You were there observing the child go blind;
The Stadium was packed – You have well timed!

They were sent home - from heaven to hell!
Many Himalayas scaled;
On the Ganges you sailed!
Some bailed out; across the border – few hailed!
Where were you when the sun died in your land?
Did you fight, Rise or would you now stand?
The stranger butchered the maiden;
He passed you…you denied...Ravened!

I Am Talking To You,
Do not change your seasons;
Words! Do not play with reasons!
Greenery sold and they are now safe in the zoo;
Do you know…Who?
Your statistics are just number,
Do you know how it feels – Nights in hunger;
Many days with oozing blood;
Come with me,
Let me show you the aftermath of Brahmaputra’s flood;
You Karma aghast!
The natives are out today,
Their fireplace needs woods!
No! Don’t sneak into their hutments,
The river dies without its sand…
Humanity buried in the hunt for land.

Love Marriage or Arranged Marrriage

Marriages are made in heaven! How many of us believe in this ?


Wikipedia Says - Marriage (also called matrimony or wedlock) is a social union or legal contract between people called spouses that creates kinship. The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but is usually an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged. Such a union is often formalized via a wedding ceremony. In terms of legal recognition, most sovereign states and other jurisdictions limit marriage to two persons of opposite sex or gender in the gender binary, and some of these allow polygynous marriage. In the 21st century, several countries and some other jurisdictions have legalized same-sex marriage. In some cultures, marriage is recommended or compulsory before pursuing any sexual activity.
Now if we look back to few thousand years and try an understand the society; we will see that apart from basic needs the nature of competition has more or less to do with sex. Let’s say the men from a certain tribes though sleeps with many women but would look for a natural heir and this lead to the institutional objective of marriage which over a period of many thousands years became hard wired and though this is an artificial phenomena is accepted as natural even quoting that “Birth, Marriage and Death are in the hands of the Gods”.

So Love Marriage or Arranged Marriage?

LOVE as defined by Wikipedia

Love is an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment. Love is also a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection —"the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another". Love may describe actions towards others or oneself based on compassion or affection


Love Marriage or Arranged Marriage?


Let us draw inspiration from our Gods. Lord Shiva and Sati/Parbati – love marriage, Parvati is an example of a female entity who has a profound effect on the male in her life, for without her, Shiva would not have been complete. Aphrodite was the Greek goddess of love and sexuality, a job she took very seriously. She was married to Hephaistos, but also had a multitude of lovers -- one of her favorites was the warrior god Ares. As the wife of the Sun God, Ra, Hathor is known in Egyptian legend as the patroness of wives. Radhika, Radharani and Radhikarani, is the childhood friend and lover of Krishna in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana, and the Gita Govinda of the Vaisnava traditions of Hinduism. Radha is almost always depicted alongside Krishna and features prominently within the theology of today's Gaudiya Vaishnava sect, which regards Radha as the original Goddess or Shakti. Apart from Radha Krishna had many other female followers.

Looking at all the above it seems even our Gods preached Love and marriage is an outcome of Love. So Love marriage ruled even during that time. Irrespective of our upbringing and social conditioning we all love a Hindi movie where a lover fights all odds to get close to his love and finally get married – A happy ending. However, in real life Love Marriages are looked down by most of the society. This is because of the concept that marriages are made in heaven and the institution of marriage with all its pros and cons is hard wired as something sacrosanct over the centuries. It’s a moot point and over the centuries though we have seen changes in attitude towards love marriage but it has not been accepted well by Indian Societies very well. We still see honor killing, Child Marriage etc. prevalent in the society.

This has been happening for quite some time. Wake up in the morning, log on to your Facebook and you see one more notification of someone getting engaged, someone getting married. Ok…Facebook is a different community all together. Am I right in saying that. Nope… we see the ugliest side of love in facebook too. However facebook is just a reflection of today’s society and where portrays where a country or society is heading. Love Marriage is great!

• It breaks barriers…religious, caste, creed, geography etc

• It spreads Love which is more important than any other thing in thise love starved society

• It lets human being behave on his/her instinct and not merely suppress them because of something institutionalized by the society

• Parents have better things to teach their children rather than wasting time teaching them what a Green or Saffron colour should mean to them

• Nothing is vulgar or unacceptable when it is natural…I would term Love marriage as Natural union. I am not sure if Adam and Eve got married and never heard of their marriage anniversary. They were enjoying life beside the Hiddekel…they were in Love. In case someone would have coined the term marriage than…yes they would have been married (Union) for years because they were deeply in Love
Among a community in North East India the if two individuals falls in love; they need to elope to prove their love. The family members would hunt them down and bring them back. They would elope again to prove their love and if this happens for the third time…the family member’s would allow them to stay together and hence a Love Marriage and the entire society agrees and approves to this wonderful concept and you will not be surprised if you visit this place to find people who are more sensitive, caring and lovable.

So …. Love Marriage or Arranged Marriage?



I don’t believe in the word “Love Marriage” because marriage is always arranged as this is an artificial phenomenon and anyone who is in love if accepted/approved would go through various arrangements to get married. Hence everyone goes through Arranged Marriage whether they are in Love or Not. For Lovers again you really don’t need to go through the process of getting married but this needs to be arranged for legal and social acceptance.

Here is a poem on the subject:

Made In Paradise Or Earth?

There is a white and there is black,
There are norms we can re-write;
With the highs and lows of the tide;
It brings new wisdom, brings new cry
Opens my eyes to a lot more around;
I turn around and I try to pry,
This is not the way to die;
A love-child; a lie!

Marriages made in heaven,
And heaven by a thinking mind;
Rewind!
And heaven in an unknown time;
Love made inside the nest of the heart,
Love a phenomena an adopted art;
Love inside a soul; a gift at birth;
Rewind;
Love unpolished and natural a real start.

Who compiles the memories of the earth?
Love is a memory by birth;
Marriage though a union of the mind;
Sometimes customized to accommodate the union of the heart?
Rewind!
Social norms personified and redefined human right.
There is darkness today but there will be light;
Heart dictates the love at first sight,
Peace is an outcome of love,
Human society today is love broke;
Love starved and tucked!
Values suppressed and orchestrated rubrics barked.

Killing is not an honor;
Marriages – heaven is not the informer;
Love cannot be arranged;
Destiny cannot be exchanged!
Birth is the outcome of union;
Cannot be justified by any of the rebellion;
Love and Arrange hand in hand,
Untamed rhythm, sea and sand,
Human society- women and man;
Love always will make them stand,
Nuptial is grand!
If at some stage affection rains;
Love and Arrange all same.

Child!


Parents - Outcome of a Child
Child - Outcome of Parents?
Outcome of love?
Outcome of time?
Outcome of an unknown rhyme?
Outcome of Needs?
Outcome of Deeds?

Death - outcome of Life.
Life - Outcome of death?
Outcome of breath?
Outcome of an unkown stake?
Outcome of the wild?
Or Outcome of a Child?

Love - Outcome of the heart.
Heart - Outcome of Love?
Outcome of knowledge?
Outcome of a child?

World flattend by time; 
Melting ice in the lava of crime.
Logic Personified to the core
All outcome of a Child.

Friendship!


Friendship

Oh! Sunshine,
You dwell in the premises of heaven;
You furnish the day with infinite rainbow,
For the sea to enshrine your beauty,
I remember many a summer song;
In the valley of love;
Borrowed from the flight of the dove,

Amity always personified simplicity,
Love packed in the heart of gold;
I understand the turmoil inside,
When your loved ones are gone;
Chums – leaves with a song,
Many tomorrows ahead, they are still young!

Hopes are built in the cubicles of thought,
Hopes! Let you move ahead and I sought;
For those pals gone in search of a dream,
In silence we sometimes scream!
You lost many in your quest!
Sometimes I do have guest;

Friendship cannot be a day,
I pray!
Cannot b a portrait of our play!
Moon dies with a single sun ray;
There is affirmation by the bay!

Unregimented!


Unregimented!

Draw inspiration from the pond,
Go to the sea and appreciate nature’s bond!
You believed when nobody else,
With ‘silence’ you shared your bed;
With fortitude you moved, though late,
With courage you love all those hate,
With pride you took the street,
Those memories, you never retreat.

Journey! human beings undertake,
With time you reach your dead bed;
Many a stories in your lives slate,
You have decided before the final rest;
We all know how the blood tastes,
Earn your daily bread!
There is something in everyone’s plate;
Your laboured fruit, others bread spread.

Sometime I wonder,
Where! What should I ponder!?
Those mountains never told me their age;
River Brahmaputra flows with rage,
The sun pioneered grace!
Face and defy as others; just a face!
Life leaves unbound trail - you trace;
Sometimes slowing down is also a race.

Sometimes Always!

Sometimes Always!
I write this today;
For tomorrow I could be by the bay,
We are destined for a single journey, Life! they say;
Some in darkness and others with sun ray.

We survive many deaths before we die;
We window shop in the life store many times before we buy,
Some lets the moments take over and some try,
The joy ride in the vehicle of hope before we die;
At times we all lie!

There is a beast inside all the soul;
Some evolves with time and some sent for a stroll,
Life camouflages your goal.
We all survive – you know you are told;
At times it’s easier when you get bold.

There, where the sky go green,
Then, when the life turns serene;
Your optimisms could be fertile,
There you are settling by the aisle.
At times it’s wise to fly with the gale.
