To a Cattle Egret

1 Jul

Yellow hood and white body,
No glamour but true beauty,
You help of the farmers,
Refuge of the Cattle, blessed be thou.

You cleanse the Cattle from leeches,
They owe thee a lot, but unable to say cheers,
You understand their plight and come to their assistance,
You help keep up the ecological balance

Oh, Egret you teach us a lot,
To help others without recognition,
To love without expectations,
Bend beneath all till death

Sometimes filled with bitterness and temptation,
I go astray, the momentary pleasure I indulge,
You inspire me to do best at all times,
Till in heaven, we find repose at the end

To a Bengal Tiger

29 Oct

Ferocious looks, shiny eyes,royal_bengal_tiger_13782220263
Hidden beneath tall grass she crouches slowly,
The mere Blackbuck unaware of the predator,
Succumbs to its death in blink of an eye

The Royal Bengal Tiger with its majestic contours,
Wonders around the Sunderbans undefiled ,
With large paws and claws,
Truly you are the Rambo of the jungle

You once threatened any man`s existence,
Today you are so few and need assistance,
Oh those beautiful days you do recall,
When you had land which no man could own

We see you animatronic everywhere,
From Movies to Malls your facsimile exists,
Hardly do men worry about your welfare,
Though you are endangered and need our care

To A Lonely Indian

3 Oct

A lonely Indian waiting for the train,railstation
Many thoughts seem to cross his mind,
Thoughts about his future, about his past and present portray,
Will he or will he not make it to the end

The life I dreamt prior arriving at this desert land, will I tally,
My fortune, will it expand as expected,
The girl I love, will she marry,
Will it or will it not happen as awaited

My parents need to cosy as they have made me,
Need to meet the villagers expectations helm,
The church that made me strong in faith, needs a contribution of me,
Will I or will I not make it for them

Was it the right choice to come to this desert land,
I am honoured for my work and nothing more,
If my country had enough then this journey banned,
Oh but there is no point turning back till I make it occur

As he moves further in his thoughts, the train makes it,
He boards and goes on,
Joining thousands of indians in it,
Will he or will he not make it to the end
