LORD KRISHNA THE AMBASSADOR

Image result for Lord krishna the warrior 

It was when the epic Mahabharata war was all set to begin:
Lord Krishna was sent by Yudhishtir, the eldest Pandava
To try and talk to the Kauravas-for a peaceful solution-
Though vengeful Draupadi was dead against a peace accord.

The all-knowing Lord Krishna, though aware of the outcome,
Went anyway to discuss peace with the over-ambitious king Duryodhana.

Though the arrogant king warned his courtiers against showing respect to Krishna,
He was the first to stand up sheepishly when the smiling Lord set foot in his presence.

Lord Krishna charmed everyone in the palace with his Divine charm,
But Duryodhana refused to give even a pin-prick area of land to the Pandavas
In spite of words of wisdom and caution from his own sagely elders.

Thus the Lord Krishna, who had ordained such an outcome, returned smiling
To announce the war.

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.
