NO EFFECT

The change in leader of a state,

winning or losing of a political party

hardly have any effect on the common.

Their life and living remain same.


A farmer ploughs lands,

a laborer builds mansion,

a cobbler makes shoes,

a teacher teaches students,

a student takes lessons,

a doctor treats patients,

an engineer runs company,

a scientist seeks for truth,

a writer writes stories and novels,

a lawyer fights cases,

a businessman earns profit,

an artist creates new dimensions,

a prostitute calls clients,

I write poems...


Boys and girls fall in love,

undergo marriage or stay in live-in relation,

children are born

but I search for love.


A poor becomes poorer and a rich becomes richer.

A middle class may rise high or fall inside a manhole.

I try my best to rise

from good to better, from better to best.

Like a mixture of reality and bleakness. Yet life should be so much more! Drink drink my Mother's nectar, Ramakrishna used to say! Indeed a meaningful experience!
