    Abstract Thoughts

    A learner has to know
    what he wants to learn
    Subjects are many
    as are the waves of mind
    Mastery of one is difficult
    master of all we can’t be!

    Learning a few lessons
    scholars we acclaim
    How cheap are degrees,
    cheaply won by rote
    Imbibing not life
    mere theories we memorize
    Storing data in mind
    scholarship list we top
    Learning few basics
    integrated knowledge we lack
    True disciple we require
    not a hoard of scholars!

    Those who live in past
    Forsake their present
    Mortgage their future

    ...a thought on daughter's birthday......

    Taking sabbatical siesta in the sojourn of life
    Dreaming a smile (-ful) memories in the lap of life
    I am dousing in the twilight of fleeing dreams
    Awake, ‘am fumbling in confusion, find not my ‘self’!
    Am I in the dreams! In the dream of dreams! Still groping in ‘me’!
    Who I am? A dream or a dreamer! Both are pleasant emissary
    In whom I am drowned in my siesta, dreaming, dreaming my lost ‘memories’
    Lo, behold! There they are, in my ‘little’ self, the child of our love, the relic of my ‘smile’
    I revere in ‘me’; both revel in the gift of ‘present’—the child of our destiny!

    PAIN
    I searched left an right, high an low
    Every nook an corner
    (But) When I woke up
    I still was searching my lost horizons
    They stared me back
    Dared me to confront
    How meekly I sought
    Refuse in them
    Only to find stiletto
    In my back
    I wreaked in pain
    They enjoyed the scene
    In pain I wreathed
    They poked my wounds
    Years in pain
    Hooked the sadistic in me
    I joined their game
    Reveled in my misery
    Now I enjoyed, they reeled
    I made merry in pain, sorrow ‘an grief---they rebelled!

    Pain of separation, grief of deceit
    Pierce the heart, wrecks it apart
    How adoringly I tended my nursery
    Love watered their roots
    My luck had its day
    Destiny mocked maliciously
    Bitter were the fruits of love
    Cancerous their growth
    What promised me heavens
    Landed me in hell!

    Oh! Pain, how sweet you are!
    Take me into your lap, rear me as child
    Lull my senses, drowse my feelings
    I love even thy paramours, grant them their boon
    Tie me in red ribbons
    Dye me in their color finish the game
    Oh! Mother earth; grant me a boon- would you!
    Ac-curse me so, I leave no imprints
    Enough is enough, I say good-bye
    Till eternity I bear not
    Fruits of seed an wither away-in ignominy

    Pain, ailments last with body
    Turmoil of mind are borne by conscience alone
    Why carry their burdens
    Wayside dregs they are
    Gross decays with death
    Mind is sieved with intellect
    In joy they are merged in
    Bliss is the ocean they are immersed in
    Reap oh! Mind, the fruits so churned
    Thy Original home seeks ye
    The more i learn more i become aware of my ignorance
    Awareness of ignorance is wisdom

    Past is dead wood
    Swimming in the stream of present churning in quick sands of future
    Every thought-word-deed is in consonance with our past
    Present- shapes their direction
    Future- would be tailored
    The more i learn more i become aware of my ignorance
    Awareness of ignorance is wisdom

    Every act, word, deed
    Become redundant
    If not sustained by present
    Saving them from oblivion of past
    Iron will is the panacea!
    The more i learn more i become aware of my ignorance
    Awareness of ignorance is wisdom

    Roots deep in earth, ego goes sky high
    NaÔve are those, who fall prey
    In transit we are
    Transient is our lot!
    Mind, oh, mind retracts, leave the low
    From high you came, high you go
    Source is the destiny, retract the footprints!
    The more i learn more i become aware of my ignorance
    Awareness of ignorance is wisdom

    That which is not shared- is PAST

    Standing on the brink of past
    I plunge in future
    By-passing present
    I recover in past
    The more i learn more i become aware of my ignorance
    Awareness of ignorance is wisdom

    Whatever is acquired is to fade away
    Nothing lasts forever
    Old gives way to new
    Latest becomes past
    Knowing is science, ‘n experience is knowledge
    The more i learn more i become aware of my ignorance
    Awareness of ignorance is wisdom

    In the ashes of past
    Are hidden our fortunes
    In the dead we live
    In the foregone we aspire
    Why repose in past
    Which is gone
    What is live is present
    Its exit is future
    Oh! Man, rise from past
    Greet the morrow
    Weep not for the gone
    Many full moons blink ahead

    The more i learn more i become aware of my ignorance
