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 Laborer

laborer
Oh Laborer of a desert city,
You toil day and night without rest,
Doing your best to build the city that never rests,
From the tallest to the smartest towers your hand exists,
But seldom people recognise that you even subsist

Short sleepless nights, to long working hours,
Weekends or weekdays are no different to you,
No worldly pleasure only dreams of a bright future,
Cold winter and hot summer are all that you enjoy,
Oh God does see your plight and shall give you rest

Some never survive to tell the tale,
Weakness, hopelessness kill their being,
Only some survive to see the face of their loved ones,
Oh what a joy to see their Papa, Husband, Son back,
Joy and Glory greater than a valiant soldier from war

With lot of dreams did they arrive at this land,
Many did realise their dreams to see their kids prosper,
Some admire this land compared to their own,
Many are desperate wanting to go back to their loved ones,
Oh Laborer, we honour you and pray for you

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
