AHALYA'S LIBERATION BY SRI RAMA





Gazing at  beautiful Ahalya from above, Indra was filled with lust;
Possessing her immediately became for him a must.
Taking  advantage of her husband- Sage Gautam Muni- having gone for a bath,
He magically took on the husband’s appearance and came down her path.

Poor unsuspecting Ahalya, though perplexed at husband’s desire at an unusual hour,
Nevertheless surrendered in his arms like a true wife and husband lover.
Then the real sage returned and realizing the deceit, was furious at both;
Though asked for forgiveness, Muni cursed them, as to forgive them he was loath.

Thus it transpired that the beautiful Ahalya got turned to stone;
But was assured by Gautam that for her sin she would atone
When her stone figure would have the Divine Bliss
Of the Lord Raghu Ram’s feet’s kiss.

When Ahalya’s original human form was restored
By Patita Pavana’s touch, as foretold,
She thanked her husband for his curse which she considered now a Blessing,
That she got to see the Lord God himself, what a benediction!!.

RIGHT WRONG

Seeing her eyes glow in excitement,
Obviously though she has it all wrong,
I rush to grab the correction opportunity,

Till I have another look at the gleam in her eyes.

If only to preserve that glorious joy,

Rather than prove her wrong

A RUMMY TALE

As he lay there, wallowing in stale rum and self-pity, know not how long;
The red-eyed monster sprang up suddenly from the brimming liquor;
Gulping down a glass of liquid fire, he roared, “Now! Shoot her now!”
“She deserves no pity- who has let you down so badly.”

Drowning in rum, he attempted to raise his head,
Raising placatory hands to his personal devil,
“Now, now, let us not go there, so afar!
Remember, she used to be my cynosure till week last,
It’s just a pity that she was charmed by someone else.”

“Beware if you show any mercy to that unfaithful wretch!”
Growled the beast, spitting out shards of glass in disgust and adding,
“Be a man, take the sharpest knife and plunge it in her heartless heart.”

He cried out loud and pleaded with folded hands,
“No, no, can’t ever do that, please for Heaven’s sake, go away.”
“Then you leave me with no other option,” sighed the monster,
Stabbing him straight through the heart.

“Cardiac arrest due to excessive sorrow and stress”-

LOVELINESS

LOVELINESS

Loveliness is not all about physical beauty,
It is also
A smile shimmering through tear- stained eyes,
A widening grin ironing out an elder's wrinkles,
A mother's joy seeing her child eating well,
A couple embracing joyfully in reunion,
A calf jumping about in joy around mother cow,
And many more...
