JATAYU

jatayu free images ಗೆ ಚಿತ್ರದ ಫಲಿತಾಂಶ


The valiant Vulture king Jatayu was resting his plumage,
Who, though mighty and powerful was now in his old age.
Suddenly seeing a damsel forcibly carried by a Rakshasa,
Jatayu realized it was Rama’s wife being taken by Ravana.

Though weak now due to passage of time, Jatayu the valiant knight,
Felt sad at his friend Dasarath’s daughter-in-law’s plight.
Thus spreading his powerful wings and rising to Ravana’s height,
He ordered him to release Rama’s Sita, else be ready for a fight. 

Though the Raksasa king first laughed at Jatayu in scorn,
He soon started screaming in pain as his body was being torn.
But the brave and noble Jatayu’s attack was in vain,
As, soon by Ravana the aging bird was alas! slain.

 Ram and Laxman,while in desperation for Sita were searching,
Happened upon the King of the skies as he lay wounded and dying.
Learning in great sorrow what happened from the vulture’s narration,
Rama blessed the large hearted Jatayu and arranged for a proper cremation.

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...

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.

Hell, I think, let me be wrong a hundred times over,
If only to preserve that glorious joy,

Rather than prove her wrong
And watch her enthusiasm wither.
