It would be befitting to humbly seek his Blessings, performing a mental Arati ;
Before venturing to write a few lines on the saintly Avatar Sri Sai of Shirdi.
In 1858, having arrived along with a wedding procession in the village of Shirdi ,
He gracefully accepted the name Sai as bestowed on him and settled under a neem tree.

Later, shifting to a Masjid which he fondly named as Dwarakamai,
He enthralled the blessed folks in and around, this exalted Saint Sai .
About his miraculous powers there are instances galore-
-His devotees know them as true and not mere folklore.

A God of the commoners, he was an embodiment of humility;
He set an example for all as to how to live happily in simplicity.
Sri Sai loved to cook himself and distribute food in plenty;
No one came to his door and left with a stomach empty .

Playing with children to their heart’s wishes,
Sai and his devotees sang and danced like dervishes.
Full of love and compassion for suffering humanity,
Shirdi baba used to himself tend to the sick and needy.

Begging for food like a true fakir seeking alms,
He shared what he got, returning with empty palms.

Though Sai baba attained Samadhi in 1918, leaving all in sorrow,as promised , Sai Bhagwan is always with us, whether today or tomorrow.

RIGHT WRONG

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

If only to preserve that glorious joy,

Rather than prove her wrong
And watch her enthusiasm wither.

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...
