A Sadhu in Varanasi, India. Français : Un Sâdh...



A Potter man’s hands

And with a Watch repairer’s eyes

I wish to hold and see



A Professor’s pen

And with a Doctor’s Needle

I wish to write and pinch



A Manual Scavenger’s Head

And with a Banker’s Calculator

I wish to ferry and count



A Priest’s Cloak

And with a Chef’s Nose

I wish to cover and sniff



A Wanderer’s Legs

And with a Sadhu’s hair

I wish to traverse and knot


Your silhouette, your giggles

Your mass, your fragrance

Your territory, your being!

    I’m wondering: why didn’t this post appear on my reader. WordPress is becoming very naughty nowadays.

    This is too good a poem, most importantly, I must applaud your imagination.

    “Watch repairer’s eyes
    a Banker’s Calculator
    Priest’s Cloak
    Sadhu’s hair”

    Where did you get all these from? ;) Such attention to every minute details. Incredible!

A Journey Called Life ...

“Never forget that once upon a time, in an unguarded moment, you recognized yourself as a friend.” - E. Gilbert


Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.
