a blog
is a poets destiny
doomed in a sigh
held in the soul
of a sewer
of drunken
gutter waters
of pain that relentlessly
lives wont die
unless deliberately
deleted or choked
by a cry
a blog
is molten tears
she loves to deny
this poets muse
not in his heart
but in the heart
of another man lies
falling in love
was very easy
falling out of love
a poetic blog
on the sly
she reads him
she reads him not
a sad thought
a digression
a dilemma
as it passes by
a carriage
of memories
slashing the
dirty waters on
the poets soul
all wet yet dry
a blog is a karmic chakra
of a cosmic poet of mumbai
metaphoric allegoric
of a little birds new wings
as it learns to fly

to tysa and idalia

What is a Blog !

a blog
is an impassioned
plea landlocked
on earth
seeking hope
in the sky
a blog
is textured
pain words
from one end
to another end fly
a blog is human
that live wont die
unless deleted
a blog and a sigh
holistically healing
a blog on a high
a blog a weeping
teardrop a scream less cry
as it crashes on the
mound of a computer
from the domain
of a blogger's eye
you read comment
or let it pass by

I Am As Much A Hindu As You Are a Muslim

to be human
is the call of a superior being
all kindness all omnipotent
all seeing from the captive
bars of the iron cells of our
blinkered mind our soul is
always fleeing godliness
is not just an attribute of god
it is the attribute of a human being

Goddess Gauri At Lalbagh

I was completely awe struck by her beauty her lively image reflected in a statue and could not stop shooting her only her form without decoration I was told is Rs 18000,

Pritam and his sister both look alike run this small shop in the market at Lalbagh along with his sisters husband.

They have a large collection of Gauri heads and dresses and jewelery on sale , I spent a lot of time here and though I shot a lot of pictures of Lord Ganesha at the various workshops the best pictures I shot in this shop.

About Goddess Gauri

Goddess Gauri is one of the manifestations of Goddess Parvati. She is the divine energy, Mother Goddess. She is considered as a perfect wife for her husband, Lord Shiva. After the conclusion of her ferocious form Goddess Kali (the black Goddess, man-eating manifestation of Goddess Parvati), observed a severe penance to get rid of her black complexion. And she returned as Goddess Gowri, the very pretty young woman with a golden complexion. Goddess Gowri is the most acceptable consort of Lord Shiva.

Being a princess Goddess Gowri accepted her ascetic husband and turned herself into her husbands way. Goddess Gouri is a clear representation of purity and austerity. She is the Kanya (Kumari or unmarried girl) who has performed severe tapas (penance) to marry Lord Shiva.

Goddess Gowri Puja – Important Ritual during Ganesh Chaturthi:

Gowri Puja is an important ritual during Ganesh Chaturthi festival. Married women worship Goddess Gowri with Sindoor or kumkum for their sowbhagyam (marital bliss). Why one has to pray to Goddess Gauri? According to Puranas, she is the Divine Mother and the origin of the Universe. Mother Goddess, Shakti, has various celestial manifestations like Goddess Sri Raja Rajeshwari, Goddess Gauri, Lalitha Tripura Sundari Devi etc..
