In the river  holy and pure,

flowing through the high terrains,

I dipped my spirit into it  to bathe

my sins got wiped

having a glimpse of her divine state…


she absorbed the worldly  charms with her

carried them forth…

to purify the iniquity…

washing the muck feet

that stepped in her waters…

…soiling her existence in



Quietly she cleanses

the dirt stuck,

revered is her entity

on earth.


In raucous   times ,

her flow becomes strident,

vociferously she roars then,

to let the souls hear her agony,

finding her children

in cark off shore…


She acts vehemently ,raging

waves to swallow

every stone…

When  mankind violates 

her flow and course,

bringing disgrace

to the Universe!!

    In fact, we ourselves are the River Divine 🙂 hmm? And, the rest is a stimulus to drive us to there 🙂

    By the way, love the perspective ❤

            tere janaal ki tasveer khich ke rakhdoo lekin
            aankh mein zabaa nahi, zabaa mein aankh nahi

            yehi se hota hai raaz e ishq e mahabbat faash
            nazre zabaa nahi, pur bezabaa nahi
