The toss of the coin
watched with anxiety
up and up went the coin
fell down a little away.
Eager heads rushed over
knocked each other in the milieu
it was a lofty fly over
all eyes locked up in the manoeuver
The heads withdrew slowly
the lead decided with the toss
an exercise that is there merely
a factor that depends on luck.
The head takes the priority
with the tail in the back
a chance or an opportunity
that offers a way to prosperity.
The rise of the coin
and the fall of the coin
takes a minute of exasperation
an eagerness displayed with volatility.
The rituals and procedures
that go about in a marriage
sends an awe and at times frightening
where there is no importance to that is apparent
where there is a claim for the unseen or abstract
The faith in astrology is great in India
star and planets govern with authority
the other rally behind this cohesiveness
many alliance get detained by the expertise
which they call a science of great strength.
Astrology does command a respect
that depends on the person who practises
as many unlearned try to read the lines
that sound not exact but misleading
breaking many prospects in weddings.
Each event has to take place in appropriate time
when the stars and tithis are favourable
when the horai and kuligai lie specifies
while rahu kala and emakandam are not found
the good bodings go off in a spree.
India is ancient and traditional
still hangs on to the age-old customs
those that were seen in broad perceptions earlier
have narrowed done to strict forfeitures
that permeate all over with a movement not forward.
Love thy neighbour as thyself
How many of us follow the parable?
as we love ourselves most in this gamble
as we do not think of any preamble
we get on busy with our ramble
forgetting that there are others in the stumble
waiting for their opportunity in the rumble
but we ignore them without a tremble
focusing on our own advance in the dabble
where we like horses race to get the best in the label
ending up at times with glory in the stable
but it would put you down in all probable.
It is very near you.
It is actually beside you.
It is obviously visible to you.
It is waiting for you.
Grab it says someone to you.
Do not miss it cries the other one to you.
It is a bit of a quandary to you.
But it is an opportunity to you.
Make the most of it is the advice to you.
Get going success is yours.
