I Wish Not


I see the Himalayas,
lofty and majestic,
higher than any other mountains,
wish not to see any other.

I see the Meenakshi temple
grand and magnificent,
an embodiment of grace and divinity,
wish not to see any other.

I see the river Ganges,
flowing down the Himalayas,
could hold dirt yet purifies,
wish not to see any other.

I see Kerala,
called as God’s own country,
with its palm lined beaches and rivers,
wish not to see any other.

I see an Indian,
moderate in stature and wheatish in colour,
disciplined and gentle,
wish not to see any other.

I see all these around me,
I do not have to travel far and near,
being fortunate to be born as an Indian,
wish not to be born as any other.
