The Nine Nights In India

Festivals during this season being colourful

with the nine nights decked wonderful

keeping Gods and Goddesses on steps nine

all looking gay and painted fine

each step standing for the attitudes

chivalry, kindness and beatitude

with the idols flanked by animals

which symbolise their ride in minimal

followed by vendors ,grocers, and leaders

all displayed to add interest to  the onlookers

with the touch of ancient and modern as well

alongside they display parks and temples with bells

befitting the imagination of the one who crafts

and arranges with a thematic concept   of art

the traditional celebration with the present coordination

that of science and technology  adding to the reverberation

called as Ggoluolu or Dassera in South India

while referred to as Durga pooja in North India

where all in a way people pray and   enjoy

while concerts of dance and music go gay

as most temples echo the happiness with a grand grasp

where the Goddess sits on the tiger resembling a clasp

the nine days make the towns and cities a place of devotion

as  a teeming crowd visit the temples to witness the invocation

the throng purely immerses itself into the throbbing  ecstasy

losing themselves in aesthetic feel  and melodious  chanting  of mantras


Phailin With Noise.

The cyclone Phailin  raged across the east coast

breaking through the  deadly silence with a toast

crashing on the banks with a bang at the utmost

shattering the inhabitation  in violence   almost

blowing through the  seas with a  velocity

creating a sonorous guffaw with alacrity

wanting to devour  in a splashy flash

all it could in vociferous gigantic gush

as the villagers around cried  beating on their head and heart

the destruction led to a crumble and a tumble ancyclone-phailin  impact great

with people wailing  and running  aghast  in fear

looking for the lost lives  and  belongings without cheer

as their world cracked under  a thunderous  storm  very near.

Infinite Seen.

The infinite  stares at you

stunning at  you at times

smiling at you on occasions

stabbing you during periods

an intervention dark and deep

that has to be faced

could never be avoided

as its presence is omnipotent

calling for immediate attention

casting a  glory and gloom

all at the images (15) same time





A Showy Stunt .

A short stustuntnt  down below 

people talking about in a go

what is it about I do not know

yet I join them  with a bow

participating in the flow

asking not how

getting on toe

as though it is a show.
