The Evergreen


The evergreen young lady,  the ‘Nature’,
In her young-looking age, she did  cheer.
At very early dawn, she left her soft bed
Rubbing the eyes  and scratching the head.

 After a dip in the morning’s drizzling drops,
 Her stunning blue sky- sari, she wore.
The Divine Mark of rainbow, she adorned,
With its many-hue on her forehead.

She lit the lamp of sacred nature
And kept in the east to see its stature.
Awakened she, her offspring, all
And them she launched for routine’s call.

 And the wicks of lamp she lit in east
 Did she pull to provide more light.
 And so can one sense the things very bright
And plan his acts, adding his insight.
 Swift she moved to the wind-fan’s board
And the fan for the cool, on she switched.                         
Wind very burly blew on surroundings
Holding in its wings the light-weight things.

 There banged the ensemble, the thunder
 Lightning added too its luster.
Birds chirped, peacock danced
And Linnet, a covert tune, crooned   

The hair of the lady, the flora’s leaves
Swam and swayed from right to left.
Nature’s own lover the time- master
Bestowed without fail on her, his care.

Hap we definitely own in  plenty,
As, her aid a lot, on us, she places.
 Entices us she in a great deal
And her splendor should never go dull.

Let not anyone destroy her sanctity
And let, hang around, everyone her serenity.  
Uphold her valor vigorous, to have her yonder.
Pray and prostrate before the God to have her for ever.



നിത്യ യൌവനം

(Its translation follows as the next post, since it has become a little long).                                  

നിത്യ  സുന്ദരി  പ്രകൃതിദേവി
നീന്തിത്തുടിച്ചു  യൌവനത്തിങ്കല്‍.
പുലര്‍കാലത്തില്‍  കണ്ണുചിമ്മി
ഉണര്‍ന്നെണീറ്റു പൂമെത്തവിട്ടു.

ചാറ്റല്‍മഴയില്‍  കുളിച്ചുതോര്‍ത്തി
നീലാംബരത്തിന്‍  അംബരം ചുറ്റി.                 .
മാരിവില്ലിന്‍കുറി  നെറ്റിയില്‍ ചാർത്തി
കിഴക്കുദിക്കില്‍  വിളക്കുകൊളുത്തി      

 ജന്തു സസ്യാദി ജാലത്തെയെല്ലാം
മെല്ലെ മെല്ലെ  ഉണര്‍ത്തി വിട്ടു  
നിലവിളക്കിന്‍  തിരി വീണ്ടും  നീട്ടി
ചൂടും  വെളിച്ചവും അധികംഏകി.

മാരുത പങ്ക  ചലിപ്പിച്ചു  വേഗം
കുളിരേറെയേകി  മാലോകര്‍ക്കെല്ലാം.
സസ്യജാലത്തിന്‍  അഴകാം വാർമുടി
സമീരൻ മെല്ലെ തഴുകിക്കൊടുത്തു .

ഇടികൾ മുഴക്കി വാദ്യമേളം
മിന്നല്‍  പൂത്തിരി കത്തിച്ചുനിന്നു
കിളികല്‍ചിലച്ചു  കുയിലുകൾ പാടി
മയൂരവൃന്ദം  നൃത്തമാടി

കാമകനാകും  കാലമെന്നും
സമീപേനിന്നു  ഗാനം പാടി.
 പ്രകൃതി പുത്രിതന്‍   പരിചരണത്താല്‍
ഉല്ലസിപ്പൂ നാമെല്ലാരും

പ്രകൃതി  യുവതിതന്‍  കോമളരൂപം
 നില നില്‍ക്കേണം നിലനിർത്തേണം
പ്രയത്‌നി ച്ചീടാം അതിനായ് നമുക്ക്
അർത്ഥിച്ചീടാം ഭഗവത് കൃപയെ.

Do and Delay Never

SHE! I don’t know if SHE is a friend or enemy of yours. One thing I know is that SHE remains in the company of all of you. People of all kind young and old, all categories male and female, all breed black and white, all type oriental and occidental and all phase rich and poor hug HER without any hesitation.

Let’s visit Radhika’s abode, where SHE is a frequent visitor and therefore Radhika  is a person of postponement. The damage that  triumphs in Radhika’s life remains prominent. She has to run and rush for conveyance to the work-venue, bear with derogatory  experience, lose the place in the forefront and the like.

 When coming to Nitesh, whenever his mother asks him to lend a hand, he plainly refuses, as he obeys the command from HER only. Here Radhika is affluent in the pecuniary area whereas Nitesh  is not so comfortable. In spite of your property or poverty SHE sucks your success.

From the paradigms quoted here one can observe that HER influence amongst you is  very conspicuous. The day-today life of  your young children is loaded with countless activities now- adays. They have to be busy with their academics like school going, homework, project work, preparation for examination etc. Many of them set out of the house for the training of ‘fine arts’ such as music, dance, painting and so on. And more over some of them have to allocate some time for  other kind of aesthetics also. In such demanding conditions SHE would definitely catch hold of them and they grab hold of HER company. Then what  happens is they cling on to HER, for they are reluctant to separate themselves from HER. The little ones when get up from the bed, SHE in a pampering and patting way whispers in their auditory organs not to leave the bed. Result they become far on for routines to be ready for  school.
Even the grown-up males among you also in the same way fall victim into HER hands that direct them to problems and troubles. SHE may follow  those individuals in all their actions that ensue and to all the places they visit. As a result the punctuality which is a by-product of discipline may vanish. Accomplishment of the destined work in various areas may evaporate and that may discolour the impressions created by them. Opportunities may dessert them causing  defects and  defeats. They may be at failure  for growth and  gains a lot. Destiny may oust them from its course of reaching the goal. The harm SHE brings to a person’s  life may be enormous and huge. But still he becomes rarely aware of the injury that transpires due to HER devilish presence.

Females of your group also escape not from the magic influence of HERS. At times they also exhibit and express their reluctance to keep themselves away from HER wicked orders. They show signs of delay in their cuisines, households and even office-work. A locale in which feminine actions are at pat, is the cosmetic and that too may remain at flaws provided SHE is with them .Later they may realize the difficulties, but still SHE has a charm  to hold tightly the individuals in HER  grip.

You all experience or enjoy HER presence willingly or unwillingly .If you forcibly shed HER presence you can carry out  wonders bagging achievements. SHE has numerous attachments to her credit such as delay, dismissal, negligence, procrastination, laxity etc. Unlike the males(not all) the females sometimes drive her away and come into sudden action. Habit that rules over your schedules is HER intimate friend. You are very font of both of them, as you express  reluctance to part  with them .Despite your masculinity or femininity if you vivaciously discard  her presence and cultivate promptness in your habits, you can reap a harvest of gold.

 Have you come across her identity? Yes, you might have by now. SHE is your redundant sibling  the’ Laziness’. SHE has pet names also like idleness, lethargy, sluggishness etc.’. If you don’t want to part with that negative aspect of your nature, lethargy will chase you out of success.

“To forget is a crime(if purposeful only, I feel so).
To be lazy is a greater crime .
To neglect duty and offer excuses is the greatest crime.
Action without delay is the soul of efficiency.”

Water! Water!

Detached the boat from the peg,
      the boat driver
  And pushed he slowly the boat
     to the water.
The people to take delight
    In the boat
Held with them their
    choicest bottles.

The glee- seekers rocked and rolled
       in merriment.
They twisted and  rock-n-rolled with
      bottles in hand.
Watching water out in backwater, into mouth
      they poured water. 
With water in hand and stomach, they sang,  
      yelled and howled.
  The females in turn made their hands
            and mouths busy
And boasted of their husbands’
         big capacity.
And the kids’ corner, in games,
         was very lively
With vim and vigor that gushed
        through in activity.

The poor boatman with no sound
      noted the things behind.
What had travelled through
         him in his mind,
assessment, disappointment,
 and the like things numerous
        or what else?

 Nodded he very humbly in a
       negative note 
to the invitation to join during interval 
         that fell for a while.
 “I don’t drink, thinking three souls;
       Two school-going
and one home-keeping rely
       on my healthiness.”

Didn't turn he his face at all 
     to the merry-makers
and so was his feeling unreadable
   and indefinable .
  “ I am wealthy in health and you are
    healthy in wealth,”  
 words from him leapt out; bold

     was his voice.
