Of precious gems and stones sparkling
Lay a rough unpolished piece
Amidst the glitters of the world
It existed silently.
Whilst in the dust,others shone
Some red,rubies,some green emeralds,
Sapphires too dazzled on the ground
In the uneven and unclean world.
The blunt rough stone
 with piercing corners
And pointed edges
None knew it was the toughest amongst all
Lying mutely even in situations hazard..
Everyone who glanced upon the same
Would turn around and look for a name
It instead observed every step
That they traced and left unkempt…
Having seen the world and earth so crude
It thought of paving a new way profound
Walked it on the untrodden path
Amidst the chaos and unseen wars
Abrasive steps shone its skin
Erosion cleared the rubble within
With umpteen sharp bends it dazzled and shined
Being polished naturally
By winds of time…
And now it stood like a gem in the crown
Glittering more than the real ones around
Who were born as the precious stones
This  was borne to be the peerless one.

    Happy new year.


    From ever old in the holy Bhagwat Gita
    Hindus and Buddhists talk about karma
    The Christains talk about deeds
    And there were some bad seeds
    It’s called te by the Taoists
    Karma by the Buddhists
    Islam says before you do Allah knew it
    He makes it happen He gets the credit
    Other spiritual beings talk about virtue
    So you see karma is really nothing new
    These are different words for the same thing
    Depends on how well you do the handling
    Millions of people have heard about karma
    And millions welcomed it in their dharma
    And millions of people believe in karma
    Remember the wise teachings of Sai Baba
    Milllions of desperate people want to clear their bad karma
    Some are arrogant they even want to face their own mensa
    The farmer works hard, his crops grow
    But you cannot reap what you don’t sow
    So not to make your karma comes back to bite you
    Do good karma don’t bite more than you can chew

    You look around the world and see suffering
    Keeping all the pharmaceuticals humming
    Omitting all the drugs on the lists
    Admistered by so-called specialists.
    Forgetting karma plays a giant role
    When Karma ready to take its toll
    Trace the folks who murder and kill
    Lives in every corner where they spill
    Generals and soldiers hired to kill
    Going to war to avenge their thrill
    Innocent lives all in the name of wars
    Leaving long tears and indelible scars
    And really what happened to them
    Doctors can’t solve their problem
    Because cancers have no cure here
    For Karma stifling them with fear

    Leaders of our nations so hypocrytical
    Politicking for gains and so darn political
    Crushing small natons on their way up
    Smashing the underlings to get to the top
    But the tears and suffering goes to the ether
    And they have to pay for neglecting a brother
    When you steal and rob your fellow man
    Someway, sometime you have to understan’
    Your turn will come when you have to pay
    On earth you got away or you may say nay
    But you can’t escape the long arm of Karma
    No matter if you pray to Jesus, Ram or Allah
    Those who preach about love and justice
    Turning his head like a praying mantis
    Yet like squeeezing flies to get the fat
    Pretending to be a governmental jurat
    Making many boo-boos calling it errors
    Dumping it on the lap of poor taxpayers
    And you thinking you’re smart
    With just a few emotional wart
    Bleeding the system and even thinking
    You got away from all the confronting
    Useless despite your prayers and a bhajan
    Karma is coming for God is not a Bajan
