A Legacy Of Mahatma Gandhi
We Have To Be Thankful To!

Patience and self-restraint are needed for all to overcome
Infection of viral disease like Corona taking a long time
To disappear as other diseases like SARS, Spain Flu...
And by doing so, it gives a great training to live with it!

Living life avoiding infection of any disease is the best
Way for the survival of humankind in this precarious world;
This kind of training due to Covid 19 for survival is indeed
A sort of moral means to maintain cleanliness for health!

Nothing is lasting and permanent in this precarious world
Of ours, in which we live life in an unique way indeed and
Also, this reminds all of the saying that cleanliness is
Next to godliness inspiring all with spiritual boost up!

Self-restraint from lavish wishes restrains us to basic
Necessities of life for survival against deadly disease;
This indeed is leading to spiritual way of simple living
And high thinking, a legacy of Mahatma Gandhi we cherish!

Love Lives Long But Lust Dies Soon!

Twin pyramids stand as twin hills on the vast desert;
Desert sand sans green vegetation anywhere is blanket;
Blanket blank with any writing on it delivers nothing;
Nothing is seen until oasis comes to quench the thirst!

Thirst and hunger need proper produces from farms out;
Out of nowhere how beautiful twin pyramids have come;
Come sure like twin hills as if burst out of passion;
Passion of desert queen brought empires and kings down!

Downward dip of mind and heart of many seek joy in valley;
Valley having great pleasure giving flower is nice beauty;
Beauty as serpentine one only can make all weak and die!
Dying so they have created history and lesson to the world!

World going on the right path reaps rich harvest and joy;
Joy won't be lasting, if it's swayed by lust and not love!

No Dazzling dance of Glamorous Beauty is Equal to Natural Beauty!

If rain comes, it comes with biggest floods everywhere
Except in desert ever needing solace by dancing damsel;
Despite all glamour real joy does not lie in glitter
But only in natural beauty, love and food healthy ever!

Sans food, water and pleasant climate with green fields,
No beauty of glamour and dazzling dance of dames ever
Fulfil body, mind and soul to live a wholesome life
Filled with natural joy and satisfaction ever in world!

Natural prosperity is the first base that can only
Bring peace and joy out of progress made by efforts
With the inspiration of beauty of richness of Nature
Whatever be the accomplishment by man in any artifact!

Survival of all in desert is difficult life that teaches
The value of Nature beautiful with rich crops and all
Along with paradise of flowers and fruits all have to
Cherish ever and not exploit and destroy in foolishness!

Which Is Sustaining Power – Ambition Or Love?

To surmount woes of the world is like crossing a desert;
But without a oasis, there is no respite to overcome it;
In spite of that, many empires have risen and fallen
With ambition to be powerful and dominate others there!

It is history that talks about those civilizations as
A lesson for all to know that power corrupts and makes
One arrogant and mad to conquer all and make them knell
Down to their feet and remain as slaves to satisfy them!

But literature always talks about love that captures all
Hearts and even makes one cross the desert to see God
To recover lost status by subduing the tyrant to knell
Before the Almighty and respect love of God for good..!

All bad things in the world may help one to reach the
Pinnacle of power but love only sustains one steady!
