time is flowing a continuum
why then today,tomorrow and yesterday?
light too is constant
darkness is a nonentity
the sun stands as a light post
sending light incessant
there was no scope of darkness
it is you who blocked light
it is the tiny earth
that is so arrogant
to create darkness for rest
by managing her shape and movement
in the chemistry of UNIVERSE
THERE ARE MILLIONS OF NUCLEAR REACTORS

whom we call stars
but the bars or blocks that stay in between
are dark producers.
darkness was a necessity
like lord KRISHNA or GODDESS KALI
WHO KNEW BETTER THAN THOSE IMAGINATIVE MINDS
THAT LIGHT IS AS IMPORTANT
AS DARKNESS BEING DIVINE.

IN MUNDANE GLOBAL EXISTENCE
WE ARE APT TO DIVIDE AND RULE
WE CREATED YESTERDAY TODAY TOMORROW
ONLY US TO BE FOOLED

Tagore in his ''Geetanjali'' and at many other writings
concentrated on YOU [TUMI]
YOU was his primary ,secondary and ultimate
LOVE
IN GEETANJALI
his YOU was GOD
with whom he communicated
as a child to parents
as a lover , as a servant
as a disciple,
as a guide and a savor.
tagore was however all along
reared, brought up , supported , and given all he needed
by his society that includes his family.

then ,the most dependable strength is his life
was his own inner potentiality
out of which emerged
wisdom, intelligence, cognitive potentiality
and fighting c*m performing ability.
the third most close friend of life in any form
is the NATURE.
who can deny
that these three you's play together in a personal and societal life
for an individual to sustain ,proceed and perform.
Tagore's youism on god was therefore nonexistent
at any level of life.

this mystic thinking was reigning
in the first part of the twentieth century.

personal inner potentiality
[from genes and environment]'
the extensive and intensive roles by the society and nature at large
together constitute our so called GOD.
AS YOU CALL YOUR LOVER, 'YOU TUMI'
YOU CALL EACH PART
OF THE WHOLE TUMI
AS TUMI
IN EVERY DAY LIFE.
AND GET FULFILLMENT OF YOUR DESIRES.
THIS IS LIFE.

young men think,
''why should the old occupy any longer
it is enough and enough
they should now discard
and leave for the young in millions''

the old persons discards the idea
of leaving without drinking to the last drop
of life's ambrosia
they think,
we are now rightly ripe
to choose
to select and reject
between reality and utopia
this is the age which we reach after a great struggle
why should we submt hurriedly
to a debacle.


both are right
but are more right the old
they are therefore more bold
to say we can't be out sold
to te vagaries of time
let time sit idle
at our door with a lulling rhyme.

Love!
Are you so evasive in context and meaning
that though I am ever pining for a kiss

Often I feel I am nearing my last destination.
Life is so complex as a journey,
The road traversed is so meandering

I sit waiting for one.
I know not who is she / he.
Clouds passed by;
I asked ''do you know
who is coming for meeting' !
The wind replied ; ' I too don't know''.
The sunshine is also dark.
I am taken aback:
A small bird sitting on my pen

told.'' it is rain and rain'
Leaves demand them
Soil too, Rivers want them, Loves them the sea
.
I asked ,'is it so dear
that all far and near
would clamor
' come soon
come earlier!'

We can't wait any longer'.

One who moists your soul and heart
is love rain .
birds twitter for love , the fountain giggles for love , if so required the mountain would fly to capture i can't beg to differ

What ever I have given thee
Or, thou hast given me
No body knows except she

who stands and waits till
the dawn fulfills our cup of glee.
She was our spirit and soul,
she was our absolute whole,
she was our inner being.
With out her our living
had no bearing,
had no meaning.
Our love did long for a companion
to witness our hug and kisses,
as if, with out witnesses
our yearnng for each other
had no premises.

after a punishing long drawn unkind summer
made an advent the clouds in the sky
people all around in the towns and villages
in tiling lands and machine roaring factories
in offices , schools and hospitals too
. in political party offices welcomed
not scaring a all that there could be deluge
to wash out office working hours.
but madu and anil two young lovers
who have just started dating braving summer
prayed,'let there be welcoming drizzling rain
overcast cloud canopy to to soothe them
while they would walk hand in hand
along the riverside track
recently named 'sweet heart track' .
the clouds hard and granted the prayer.
drizzzling started and stayed
at this farmers got hghly disappointed

the river beds having been dry at most places
people had scarcity of water in villages.
their they began worship of rain giving god
to por down hugely and hard
to makeup summer inflicted dryness.
the clouds were in dilemma
one evening they stopped madhu and anil
and asked sweetly
,' yes madhu , what to do '
madhu said , you do one thing
in our roaming area only ,you don't pour
at other places rain down galore.
the clouds the ever pleasing angels of sweet hearts
did rain smart
like wise. the next morning when anil was asked
to receive a relative at the air port
he culd not come back
as the airport area was hugely flooded
madhu got upset
and again asked the clouds explanations
the clouds said , to solve your problem
there is one and only one solution
.'' do not stay you two separated any more
stay together bu wedding union. ''
madhu at this got extremely angered
so long she was so much pampered. she said
you the old , bogus clouds
how would you know the charm of dating days ,
'' never mind then'', said the clouds,
'' enjoy the love in drenched clothes
you learn the trick from your grand parents
who met in summer, winter and rains always,''
