The Meet.


There was a meet a fortnight ago

a family meet  in the go

where the cousins 

converge and diverge

enter they in high spirits

come out with demoralized ethos

their egos on display

the power reigns supreme

the wealth takes the reign

as in all society

there are classifications

the superlative shadows the rest

a prowess of strength in a show

nothing concrete on the go

talk they of their ancestors

year in and year out

Is it the way to commemorate?

I really do not know .

I am part of the family

an onlooker for a few years

now mostly out of it

nothing personal as such

the audacity overwhlems

that be their way in style

a protest becomes impossible

with certain stipulations in sway

that be my status

a Hameltian dilemma

“To be or not to be.”

 meet the family

The Cruise


download (39)The cruise sailed slow
the water became turbulent
the entertainment dragged along
there being a panic all around
the passengers feeling the fear
got hold of each other  in  frenzy
the water ebbed over
with the cruise being tossed all over
hoping the tide to settle down
the captain went all around
knitting his eyebrows
rubbing his hands   in confusion
nothing is in our hands you know
half a minute ago it was joy
with a dance and a cocktail drink
now it is sea water causing a havoc
see the tides changing in a second
then why do you go about in such audacity
Ireally could not subscribe

Religions Speak.


in the name of religionReligions guide us through life.
Living upright is the way of life.
Speak not lies is all religion’s call.
Help the needy is their essential call.
Believe in truth is their underlying principle.
Never belie trust is every religion’s gospel.
Kind words and acts they advocate bring in harmony and peace.
Radiating cheer and happiness they prove demand no fees.
Humility and respect they insist command progression.
Authority and audacity they point out lead to destruction.
That being the basis of all religions at large.
Wherein breaks violence and unrest in a gorge?
Destroying the human race in gross.
Would people ever try to rectify the flaws?

Disenchanting Galore.


Cities are classified according to their importance.

Delhi is the  political capital of India.

Mumbai is the financial capital .

Bengaluru is the hub of Information technology.

Chennai is the Detroit of India.

Coimbatore is the home of textiles.

Kolkatta pops up as the  cultural center.

Pune is a rising city.

Madurai ,the ancient city,  is familiar for its temples,unfamiliar otherwise.

The quint essence of this city is quietness.

It is not affected by any modern alchemy.

It is vulnerable to politics.It is a political  hotspot.

The  first week of August,made Madurai rock and tremble.

Banners and posters were displayed in each and every corner of the city, to welcome the Chief minister of Tamilnadu.

Cut outs of The Chief Minister ,in all postures (Sans his sleeping pose) were put up.Life size figures of his son Alagiri and his family were erected.

In one or two places we could find the portrait of his mother also.

Loud speakers were blasting his praise

Madurai ,from time immemorial ,is called as Meenakshi patinam or City of Meenakshi.

Now  the DMK functionaries have dubbed it as ALagiri Kottai or THe Fort Of ALagiri.

The whole  affair is  full of distaste, The outcome is nauseating.

Does Karunanidhi represent the people?

Is he an elected Chief Minister?

or

Is he a sovereign power of Tamilnadu?

Has he appointed his sons as  Chieftains ?

Humility pays in the long run.

Audacity claims short lived glory.
