Five large treasures of snow
Unexplored and unconquered
And abode of mythical Yeti...
O, Mount Kangchenjunga!
Your height and might
Panoramic pristine beauty
And milky white
Aura and ambiance
Of snow-capped peaks
Remain a mystique for ages
Inspiring an awe...

No wonder
Why from the time
Ordinary folks and elite
Poets and romantic lovers
Owe their allegiance
Pledge their love
To the virgin
Himalayan heights.

(Also known as Kanchenjunga - this mobile photo was snapped in early morning at Pelling, a small town in West Sikkim, largely a virgin territory with alpine vegetation and scenic beauty)

Comment Grateful for your touching words and warm wishes, Rupradha Ji.
In mid fifties I don't really nurture many worldly aspirations, and I sincerely wish you to shine like Kanchenjunga with a blissful, creative and contented life.
