Warriors of Yore
by Dr. Kumarendra Mallick

Alexander, Napoleon

Hitler and their tribes

tried in vain to draw

with blood of the innocents

imaginary borders of their empire

 

In sympathy for the simple and poor

the rain of time came down in showers

the stains to wash off

and the face of the earth to glow again

 

Buddha, Jesus, Nanak,

Kabir, Rumi and Gandhi

did not carry lethal weapons,

yet occupied the three worlds –

aren’t they superior warriors!

 

Newton, Einstein, Curie and Raman

did not march with a mammoth army,

still their imaginations touched infinity;

so did Kalidas, Dante and Shakespeare,

Milton, Eliot, Frost, Tennyson and Tagore

nurtured the gardens of beauty

and laid flower beds in the hearts of the humanity.

 

Muscles and weapons have hardly any power,

the mind has – its territory

goes beyond space and time

and enters into a realm –

enchanting and sublime!

Comment Thank you, Kulbir Saheb for suming up your reaction in a word, equally 'sublime' to me.
