The Prayer Of All


The prayer in earnest

could bring in cheer

would lead to no fear

lend a heart strongest.

 

The prayer with a thirst

could be for a desire

would bring in a pressure

earn a not so propitious  burst.

 

The prayer with a thought

be an outcome of an inclination

would usher in a deviation

give a strange proposition as sought.

 

The prayers do change things

whether they be in earnest

or out of thought or thirst prayer.jpg

shed not a glamour in all

render a requisition  in call.

 

 

 

Many A Way


Many a way to help others
who are in distress
to relieve them of a stress
assuage with a gentle press
give nothing less
whatever in surplus
be it one of monetary cess
or that of organs in bless
kind words not in guess
least of all a thought in earnestness
best of everything a prayer in reverence
would turn out an ideal deliverance.

The Content Of Prayer.


Heard a chant round the corner.
It was a long prayer
seeking the blessings of the almighty
with a fervent piety.
Lot more than that came after in a sequence
with unbelievable reference.
It sought wealth with prosperity altogether.
unknowing that they come together.
It asked for enormous authority and power
so as to revel in splendour.
Not stopping at this level it went ahead
with a list instead.
That included other pleas private
which called for a concern considerate.
While leaving the corner thought of
Is that all prayer is made of?

More Sad .


We are on Saturday. We have heard distressing news from all over the world. Death is in all enormity. It is outrageous, particularly this week.Despair mounts. Gloom permeates. Sorrow fills. Tears well. Heart sinks.

The earthquake ,followed by tsunami in Samoan islands, two successive earthquakes in Padang Indonesia, Typhoon Parma  in Philliphines, floods  in India, great drought in East Africa, have installed a delerium , have imposed a deliberate shock on the community.

Besides, such rude violence, a boat capsize in Thekkady , in Kerala,has aroused an indignation over the safety measures adopted by authorities.The indifferent , light hearted attitude of the staff of the tourist centre has cost forty precious lives.The amusement has been converted to a tedium.

Nature seems to be enraged. The unholy behaviour of Nature is ascribed to an environmental disaster, created by Man. It is, in a way right. In a way , wrong. Such grotesque episodes occurred  from the time of vedas, in the age before CHrist, some 2000 years ago. There was the great deluge , which converged in the tale of Noah’s ark, the submerging of Lemuria beneath the Pacific Ocean also adds evidence to the fact that  Natural  disasters were a regular phenomenon. We read about the disintegration of land masses, land slides , tornadoes  hurricanes that took place. even a few centuries back.

This cyclic eventualities did and do happen , causing hardships, creating disappointments, producing misery, and issuing bereavement. The loss is irreparable, both materially and mentally.

The week is drawing to a close. Let us be kept away from  pralayams,catastrophes, .”bencanas”

Deafening Noise -Deadly Silence.


Padang  in Indonesia experienced 7.6magnitude earthquake.Successive quakes devoured 529 lives officially, though more than thousands are feared dead., in reality. Indonesia ,the island country is ripped by earthquakes . A fortnight or so, it was heavily affected by a violent quake.

As day and night are natural occurences of the other parts of the world, quakes of high velocity has become a routine happening to the poor Indonesians. Voices from the rubble,cries from the ruins, wails from the dying , are heart rending. Seeing the disaster in video makes us weep. The sadness is so overwhelming that we become frozen and pale.

A research centre has to be set up in this region. The causes for such natural eruptions should be analysed by the scientists.A forewarning centre has  to be arranged. Mainly habitation in quake prone areas should be withdrawn.They should be settled  in safe areas. Houses and shops should be built with light quake resistant materials, such that even if they collapse, no major harm would  take place..People should be educated ,as how to react to the turbulence. Swift decision and quick action should be their mantra. As soon  as they feel anything amiss ,they should rush out  of the buildings. Everything , the entire rummaging is caused in a fraction of a second. Presence of mind should be the motto.

Indonesia had undergone such trials in the past. But , the quick successions  of outbursts, has diluted its spirit. The invincible courage and indomitable bravery   found in the Indonesians has been broken.Fear and nervousness have set in. Gloom and despair have settled.

We, the fortunate , should do something to alleviate their misery. Small pebbles make a mighty ocean.A small contribution or a volunteer help through organisations will mitigate the crisis .

God help them
