Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 72

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


You, goddess of desire- love and lust-

possess an eternal power of pouring cold water

to put off the flame of austere devotion

burning in the hearts of million yogis.

The flame of dedication turns into

fumes of pollution to contaminate

the cleanliness of the very environment.

You force one to change one’s right track.

One having concentration can take the path again,

while one losing it, is lost forever.

You, the killer of many innocent lives

fail to win permanently over a wise.
