You increase the beauty of the riches,
Decorated in the living room in pitchers,
Doctored in height, but full- bloomed
Even bore fruits normally groomed;
As if a Lilliputian in the Plant-Kingdom,
Age and difficulties, no body fathom.
Men and women look for protection
How long no one knows, no body cares,
Freedom is attained, after sixty-one years
Still no questions, even no one dares;
Brahmacharya, Garhasthya, Banaprastha passed
Now at Sanyasa, still other castes are cared.
To suck the benefits offered beyond constitution,
Who knows for whose benefits, what revolution?
N.B.According to Vedic inscriptions a human life is devided in four quarters.1) Brahmacharya i.e. where an adolescent is supposed to maintain celebecy and lead a pious life 2) Garhasthya i.e. where one has to lead a family life and fulfil all his obligations to his/her siblings and guide them to the future life3) Banaprasthya i.e. where one has to be aloof from family life gradually and concentrate on meditation to achive the higher levels of life4) Sanyas i.e where one has to completely devote all his/her efforts through pious life, prayer and meditation to achieve the lotus feet of the Lord. This humble note is only for thhose of my friends in the western hemisphere who might not be aware in details about the words used by me in the poem- no malice meant to anybody.My apology if any body is heart- Rajkumar
