The unknown singing bird sang
Several songs for some years;
The songs of the singing bird
Soon created news and history!
All the life songs of the bird about
Nature and culture are literature now!

Knowledge and experience give wisdom
That gives a system of life to live;
This is called human culture.
For all, the beginning and the end
Are in Nature only and so it is
The friend, philosopher and guide
Not only to poets, scientists and artists
But also to the whole of mankind.

From first melody to last funeral song
All songs say only about human love!
In reality the more we love the dear one
The more the dear one goes far away!
The tragedy of loved one lives in mind
Ever plunging everyone in endless tears!

Love is the source of all creations in evolution
From blue green algae to man in the world!
Without love nothing can be created and
Great things worthwhile are achieved by men!
One such great thing is poetry of great poets
Absorbing heart, mind and soul of man ever!

What is poetry? Poetry is the magical expression,
Words of poet's heart echoing in the minds of men!
Building castle in the air and capturing in camera
Poetry does to produce the album of poetry book!
Collecting honey from flowers to build beehive
Poet bee weaves ideas together to compose poetry!

Arranging beautiful ideas focused on a subject
A great work of art poet creates in poetry with
Sound, sense, substance and seriousness in words!
Beautiful, sweet and light music of poetry absorbs
Heart, mind and soul to entertain and instruct with
Inspiring ideas to live a happy and prosperous life
With confidence, courage and endurance in the world!

Expressing experience of life in meaningful verse
Poet finds favour with everyone everywhere here!
Compressing many ideas in a nutshell, poet makes it
Possible to reveal Universal truths from trivialities;
Such a magical art in any other form of literature
It is not worth trying other than in poetry alone!

The all absorbing power of poetry is an invaluable art
That has royal reception everywhere in world literature.
Sweet songs of Nightingale, beautiful dance of peacock
And so on will be immortal and unforgettable in poetry!
So, the songs of the singing bird, whom we call a poet,
Will echo eternally in the hearts of men and world of art!


When the clouds are gathering in the sky,
And with fully spread wings the peacocks are dancing,
The rain is sure to come.

When the glorious morning Sun is coming up,
And the gentle breeze is moving the leaves of the trees,
People begin their work in a pleasant manner.

While the cool river is going through the serene land,
And the sky high towering temple is shining like gold,
Radha and Krishna dance in the Brindhawan garden.

Where the green leaves of the trees are shading the banks of the river,
And the beautiful birds are singing sweetly over the trees,
There the miseries of the men melt away in the melody of the Divine.

As the haunting melodies of the Divine Lord keep
The cows, shepherds and the maids in spell bound serenity,
The dappled dusk draws the day to a close.

Like the crystal clear water flowing in cascades,
The moving musical notes flow from the divine flute of the Lord,
And the dames dance around the Lord in their dreams!

In endless merry go round, the group dance of the dames go on.
Like the planets revolving round the Sun,
Like the Stars twinkling around the Moon in the Universe!

To overcome the big ocean of life in a easy way,
The Lord has come to the world from the ocean of Cosmic energy
To wake up men from the illusion of life and show them the way out.

Brindhawan is the beautiful place the Lord has chosen to preach
The perennial philosophy of Non-Attachment to overcome all woes
For all the men to follow faithfully on the path of Dharma.


As a sparkling Diamond among the nations
India stands beautifully in shape and size
On the Map of the World attracting all!
For, India, the land of beauty and greatness
Naturally stands unique in Asia as it is
Noted long for its Rich Culture and
Ancient Civilization in the World!

From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and
Gujarat to Assam Regions of India
Many languages, religions, races,
Cultures and traditions thrive here!
The Aryan and the Dravidian Cultures
Mingled here as the Indian Culture!
Also, the cultures of each State
Embellish the greatness of India unique!
In Arts, Philosophy and Religion
Nature itself has inspired variously
Many poets, philosophers and saints
To excel here in their occupations;
Great they became simply because
They were born in this Great Land!

The natural shape of India is the very image
Of the Goddess Sakti herself in reality!
Jammu and Kashmir, paradise on Earth
Beautify the face of Mother India unique;
Himachal Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana
Form a necklace to her neck fine;
The Desert of Rajasthan and the Plains of Ganga
Beautify her body frame as garb;
The Central Plateau of Vindhian Mountains
Cover her chest and stomach firm;
The Deccan Plateau and the Carnatic Plains
Beautify her thighs and calves strong
With her feet gently immersed in the three Seas,
Bengal, Indian and Arabian firm!

The peaks of the snow capped Himalayas
Are the abode of Lord Siva forever;
The confluence of the Indian Ocean and the Sky
Forms the abode of Lord Vishnu eternally;
Siva and Vishnu of North and South India
Protect the Sakti to do her duties to the World.

The Sun comes everyday to glorify her power!
The Moon comes every night to glorify her beauty!
The clouds praise her valor in the day time!
The Stars glorify her beauty in the night time!
And the waves of the Indian Seas praise her eternally!


The Mother India is Saraswathi, in the North;
This Sakti is Lakshmi in the Central India;
And this Sakti is Parvathi in the South.
This Sakti gives knowledge, wealth and power all!

Yes, she stands erect holding a Bow in her right
With a stretched string in her left hand forever;
Her Arrow pointing to the West ready to fight
Any formidable enemy at anytime day and night!

The garlands of veins, wherein flow the life blood
Like rivers, making her soil fertile for crops grow!
The four Seasons round the year enrich her great Nature!
The four Yugas in a cycle glorify her Rich Culture!

The old Astrology and Astronomy still highlight
the advancement of her Ancient Civilisation!
The four Vedas of India still remain the Mother of
All Religions in the World North, East, West and South!

The four Indian Stages of Life (*)ever solve
The enigma of human life in the world!
The four Ways of Life (**)still uphold
The greatness of her Dharma and ever!

The beauty and greatness of India are
Eternal in Nature and Literature endless!
The Material Advancement of the West can't be
A great threat to her Spiritual Greatness!
And the Spiritual Science of India will certainly
Lead the World to peace and prosperity!

(*)- Existence, Knowledge, Bliss and Absolute
(**)- Brahman, Kshatrian, Vysian and Sudran


India is a land of beauty, love and greatness ever
Whether it is statues of God or temples or animals
Or women or arts or landscapes or gardens or rivers
Or sunrise or Moon rise or night sky or seas.....!

World beauties of past, present and ever are here;
Symbol of love, Tajmahal nowhere except here is seen;
Chandragupta Mauriya, Ashoka, Buddha and Gandhi are
Great as Rama, Krishna, Shiva, Vishnu and Vivekananda!

Religion, literature and philosophy flourish ever here
Conquering the world men by their wisdom unlike other
Nations trying to conquer the world by military force
Adopting UN charter as the Constitution of India ever!

Even after hundreds of years under foreign rule, India
Still remains one of the top nations of the world by
Its philosophy of Dharma, love and peace and its unique
Culture of universal brotherhood embracing world humankind!
