straight from my heart and soul

Every God has His day!

These Gods were biting dust in a park of South Delhi now they will travel to Gothenburg, Sweden, tomorrow early morning. They are lucky enough to be adopted by my dear friend, a humanist, a Vaishnava devotee and a scientist by choice Mr. Abhay Kumar.
Who says that every dog has his days, even every God has His days!

For these kind of abandoned Gods, new born babies and aged parents who are thrown by their very dear persons I had composed a poem few days back. How much this poetry is relevant is left to readers to decide.
“लावारिस भगवान”

गृहस्थ के गर्भ-गृह में ठहर गया भगवान
रात की अंधियारी में बचते-बचाते
पटक दिया गया भगवान – अबोध, अकिंचन
बूढ़े पीपल की छाँव में – लावारिस भगवान
वृद्धा-आश्रम के पीछे अब रहता है
बूढ़े पीपल से भी बूढ़ा भगवान
दुर्गा, गणेश, राधा-कृष्ण, साईं बाबा
सब छत की तलाश में टुकुर-टुकुर निहारते
वृद्धा-आश्रम की चारदीवारी
धूल-धूप-बरसात और सर्द हवा सहते
हार गया भगवान घर के कलेष में
नई क्रोकरी सेट से
जाने कौन गर्भिणी ब्रहामणी छोड़ जाती
अवांछित भगवान
बूढ़े पीपल की छाँव में
लावारिस सा भगवान

  1. Image of God is not the God. Correct phrase is every dog has a sunday. According to cristian belief God created sunday the sabbeth when he rested after 6 days of work of creation.

  2. MAHADEVA S SARMA on said:

    This poem reflects the uncomfortable feelings one goes through when one has to cast away an image of God as in Sanatana Dharma. There are situations one is recommended to cast away the same. We have invited this trouble by adopting Image Worship!

  3. In this materialistic world whether human being or God, whosoever serves any purpose is welcomed or otherwise shown the door.
