(CLEAR PRAYING TO HIS GOD………CLOSED HAND,HEAD DOWN)

All that I want……

All I want is to be free,

Free to be real,

Free to be honest,

And enough free,

To express myself.

All I want is to listen,

Listen to my own voice.

Arranging those scattered words,

I want to write,

Write songs that defines me.

All I want is to dance,

Dance on music,

That comes from heart.

Dance in the rain,

That purifies my soul.

All I want is to be understood,

Unjudged and loved.

All I want is to be loved,

And love to the extent,

that fills me with blissful joy.

Lord as a best friend…………

Today while reading some articles on religion and mythology, I got attracted towards two mythological figures from the great epic Mahabharata. One, is Sree Krishna and the other is Draupadi and the friendship they shared. Based on these two figures, I would prefer to share some of my views on true friendship. We  often hear people calling Krishna, a womanizer. Considering, Radha Krishna’s story,his past-time with  gopies and then having so many wives, from a very general point of view ,many a times, I too got blown away with the common impression that people have for him. But When I give emphasis to Krishna and Draupadi’s relationship, a certain voice from inside always tell me to respect them both.
Draupadi was not just blessed with beauty but also virtue. She was always submissive towards her duty. Many a time people have raised questions on her character but no one ever realized that getting married to five husbands was never her luxury but compulsion and struggle as well. Infact she did so for the greater good of all without even thinking about the bad consequences she would face. She did not even have the right to love just that one person who achieved her and whom she desired with all her heart before marriage. She stayed committed to all five equally. She had five husbands but no one was truly committed to her or stood up for her when needed. Each one of them brought another wife or wives for themselves without giving importance to her feelings and sacrifices. Well we can consider Bheem as an exception because he got married to Hidimba even before he married Draupadi and avenged most of her insuts . She had a powerful father, powerful brother, extremely talented and five powerful husbands but none of them were completely successful in protecting her respect and chastity. Actually none of them never really had respected her enough. It was Lord Krishna who guided her though all dark ways, protecting her chastity and never left her alone. In fact the Lord was her only philosophical guide.
During Sisupal Vadh, Krishna got his finger cut and Draupadi without any delay covered the wound tearing a piece of cloth from her Saree and in return Krishna promised to repay the debt of each threads when needed and he kept his promise saving Draupadi’s chastity when Dushasan tried to disrobe her in front of the whole court. At that moment there were no one to help her out. No fatherly figures,brother and all-powerful husbands were helpless. When she repeatedly questioned her husband specially Yudhisthir, he was numb. Yudhisthir didn’t even respect her individuality as an independent human being and put her on stake while gambling. When she questioned Bhism Pitamaha, though knowing that Duryodhan is doing evil, he got more stuck with his duty towards the kingdom and finding answer to the questions “Whether a man own his wife or not or whether a master has the right to do anything he pleases with his slave?”,than to the lamenting woman standing in front of him asking for help. If he wanted he really could have helped Draupadi,who was daughter like for him from being disrobed.
But she never disrespected any of her husbands or elders of the family. Rather she was the only one who followed her husbands to the forest absorbing all the suffering but never put aside her duty towards her husbands. Pandavas’ other wives were not seen during this phase. Well, I do understand that it was needed for Subhadra to stay away and raise Abhimanyu but Draupadi had to stay away from her five sons for a period of whole 13 years. She had always shown respect to Gandhari and Dhritarastra and had sympathized with their misfortune after the war. But it was in Dhritarastra’s court where she faced the most insulting misfortune and her husband lost everything for a period 13 yrs.
During their 13 years of exile it was her best friend Krishna who saved her husbands from Rishi Durvasa’s curse on her request. Krishna along with his own niece Abhimanyu looked after all five Upapandavs during that exile and made them trained and educated.
Lord Krishna always knew whoever it is, a queen or a maid,a friend or a friend’s wife,anyone or any lady belonging to any class is respectable and dishonoring or disrespecting another man’s lady or even looking at her with lust is an unforgivable offence. Therefore, we all know that he became the medium to vanquish all evil Kauravas from earth avenging Draupadi’s insult. Though he himself did not fight but helped Arjun and Bheem to fulfill their vow.
Nobody except Krishna whom Draupadi used to call her best friend gave her the deserved respect and fulfilled all his duties towards her.I know many would say that due to Arjun’s ignorance, Draupadi’s heart desired Karna many a times when she realized her mistake to call Karna a Charioteer’s son at her self-choice ceremony but even if it is true, she never forgot her duties towards all her husbands and never left them alone in bad time. And then even being a man from that age,Karna believed in monogamy. If she would have wedded to Karna,no body would have ever dared to insult her in front of the whole court. But she rather chose Arjun, who was on Dharma’s side in her eyes, at least for that moment when her self-choice ceremony was going on. Karna was the man who had all the qualities she desired. Other than being just a great archer,he was handsome,strong and full of humility,ethical but as he was on Duryodhan’s side, she preferred choosing Arjun. But son of Dharma and devotees of Dharma remained silent when the whole world saw her destruction and except Krishna no one came up to her help. All her expectations got crushed.
Even in today’s world we see friendship between a man and a woman from a very filthy and doubtful eyes. But there are some other truths as well.Even in today’s world woman is considered as husband’s property, man forces his dominance over woman. Teachers, mentors, fatherly figures look upon to the daughter -like -girls with lustful eyes. Even if there are few who don’t,they are afraid to protest the evil, hiding themselves behind the veil of reputation and social status. I being a woman really understand that a woman should be the reason for man’s pride, glory and respect but it is also the duty of a man to protect his woman’s respect and should be the reason for her pride,glory and respect. Staring at other man’s lady with lustful eyes has always been a sinful act and would always remain that way. One should understand that staring at your brother’s or friend’s lady with lustful eyes brings disrespect to those men as well and the curse could anytime touch you and your family. According to Bhagvat Geeta ,it’s our Karma that determines our future. What matters is the present moment and how we do justice to it. You too were born out of lady’s womb whom you call mother, you too have other relations like sisters and daughters who would also be someone’s wife someday. As a man you should understand that it would cause the same pain to that man as it would have caused to you if your lady or wife were watched with lustful eyes by other men. There is a difference between your brother or friend’s lady and a prostitute. But a girl should also keep in mind that your activities should also be such that it don’t harm your man’s dignity and you should always understand your own value and should stay beside your man during crisis. Lord Krishna served Draupadi as his best friend because she herself never did anything wrong and was duty-bound irrespective of all the suffering she had gone through. God always stays with the right person. If you are talented, you are bound to get success in your work. Maharathi Karna has proved it many a times but if you are not righteous and use your power and talent selfishly for yourself, then the tears of a duty-bound women and insulted men would never let you sleep peacefully, and would haunt you every night and be the reason for your downfall as happened to Duryodhan, Dushashan and Karna. Even Bhism Pitamaha, Kripacharya and Drona Acharya got penalized for remaining silent. Draupadi’s life was difficult but successful because it was Lord fighting for her and Lord knows everyone’s heart. Draupadi got the punishment for some of her mistakes from past but still she was better person as compared to others from that age and was rewarded for that. Draupadi and Krishna shared a better relationship as friends.

My Waits…………………..

Sweet moments and cozy cuddle,
Cute chat and loud laughter,
Long distance but close connection,
Your whisper and my deep breath,
Kisses and happiness,
Caresses of the soul,
My sweet pain.
My fantasies and your face,
Throbbing heart and long waits,
Expectations and rejections,
Your empathy and my hope,
Boundless tears and aching soul,
My shelter and your chest,
Deep sleeps and my waits.

Life, A game of chess…

I never chose to play,
But you did.
Yours was the white pieces,
And mine was the black.
Your choice was made,
And I just played
The unwanted game.

Now Seeing my pawn getting promoted,
You want to stop.
But it is not me anymore playing,
Face the grand master.
He was the gamer
And we were the pieces,
And this is how,
The Grand Master plays.

Beautiful moment I experienced ever..

I stormed out of my house
To quarrel with you.
But even before I could
See your face,
I found myself in your arms
Gently embraced.
Though I liked it
But still I had to fight.
I maintained a good distance
And tried not to make a good exchange.
You asked me, what’s so wrong?
I answered that’s none of your concern.
Don’t ask silly questions
Of which you already knew answers.
Things started changing like magic
After that.
Me got embraced by you forever,
The most beautiful moment I experienced ever.

THE DECEIVING RAIN..

LOOKING OUT THROUGH THE WINDOW,

LISTENING TO THE DEVINE MELODY,

THE POPING SOUND,

OF THE LIQUID PEARLS STRIKING THE GROUND.

OH! THE DEAREST DOWNPOUR,

DON’T KNOW WHY,

WHAT MADE ME FEEL SO ENVIOUS.

I AM FEELING SO JEALOUS OF THE EARTH,

BEING PASSIONATELY KISSED BY YOU.

FOR THE FIRST TIME,

I DIDN’T FEEL LIKE GETTING MYSELF WET.

YOU ARE SO CLOSE TO ME,

BUT I AM NOT LETTING MYSELF DRENCHED.

I DON’T KNOW WHAT HELD ME BACK

I CAN’T EMBRACE YOU.

THE FRAGRANCE OF THE EARTH,

DOESN’T  FEEL INTOXICATING ANYMORE,

I FEEL SO FORLORN.

THE WIND TOUCHING MY FACE,

DON’T SEEMS LIKE CARESSING ME ANYMORE.

ALL I COULD JUST WISH,

IS THAT YOU COULD HAVE

BLESSED US WITH YOUR SHOWER,

WHEN WE WERE TOGETHER.

JUST LIKE THE WAY YOU ARE UNIFYING

WITH THE EARTH

I NEVER THOUGHT YOU WILL DECEIVE ME

MY DEAREST CHUM.

ALL I WANTED YOU TO DO

IS TO SHOWER ON US,

SHOWING YOUR APPROVAL.

THE SUMMER BREEZE……

Today after a long time,

While having tea,

In the little tea stall,

In front of my house.

The morning breeze,

Touched my face.

Swaying way all disgust I had.

I wish I could have ,

Seized it for lifelong,

But I knew it’s impossible.

It’s the beauty of the summer breeze ,

That it loves me with all compassion,

Freedom and gentleness.

I knew it would have never did the same,

If I would have able to seize it.

I too will love you back with Care, open heartedness and free-will

Freeing myself from all selfish attachment and greed.

And I know that you would always love me back

And I continue seizing your love in my heart.
