Physics & Social Chemistry

Science attests:

Mother Earth
rotates and revolves
around the Sun

It is this
One kinetic principle
the sole vibrant flow
giving birth to
dawn, zenith, dusk, night

A pattern
Life replicates eternally as
childhood, youth, old age and death
and lives through
the dynamics of
creation, sustenance, decay and mortality 
This chemistry of physics
is omnipotently universal
all knowledge
      that begins
      and ends
within this marvel

Yet not recognizing
the phenomenal truth
as humans
      denying veracity
      in our lost wisdom
      of rationality
we tend to lead our lives
in restrictive boundaries
with the confusion
of prejudiced discrimination
sectarian divides
isms, dogmas and creeds
waging futile wars
with absurd identities  
the new world order
       and disillusioned
is being brokered
into bonded slavery
instead of
universal freedom.

Comment The seers in the Vedic tradition talk about Ritam, which is essentially the way Nature works (the system of Nature or the Chemistry of Physics as you so aptly put it). They reason that as part of Nature we should live in consonance with the Ritam of Nature. This is the essence of Vedanta as proclaimed in the Mahavakyas:

Sarvam Khalvidam Bramah,
Tatvam Asi,
Ekam Sat Viprah Bahudha Vadanti,
Vashudhaiv Kutumbkam,

As we deviate from this Ritam we sow the seeds for our own troubles.

Comment 8 October 2012
TO: Mr. Rajender Krishan
The first part of your poem resonates Tagore's observation as follows,

"On this earth there had been so much violence, so much weal and woe, union and estrangement, arrival and departure; these myriad frolics everyday are all lost in my amnesia, yet, this autumnal green reigns on this widespread earth every year for ages. Its solemn peace and beauty, its immaculate aesthetic have gone unscathed. When I think of this, I look at the sky ahead when that tranquility over ages absorbs all my lifelong grievances into its own boundlessness."
Yet, this elevation cannot be sustained and you inevitably had to come down to the mundane "muddling" in the second part of your poem estranged from the "dynamics of Creation" as you refer to in the first part.Often, it seems, Aldous Huxley was amazingly prophetic when in the last fifties he had said "History of human civilization is going to be one of victory of Belial over God"

Comment Natural truth no one cares! Greed and domination as in monopoly are spoiling all matters in modern society!

Comment Finding parallels between natural sciences, a complex society and life is a stupendous job for others less gifted but for Rajender Krishan, it comes easily. Of late, the burst of creativity, on display through such deceptively simple verses, of this versatile man, has further enriched an already rich content on the famous Boloji.Com.
Let the flow continue and you speak via these poems---for our collective delight, RKji.

Comment From the very style it is evident that these are the spontaneous outbursts. The poet in you craving to reveal its best. Keep it up and let us enjoy more and more of it.

Comment Starts with simple poetic version of science and ends with metaphysical examination knocking at the doors of social awareness! Well done!

Comment Dear Rajender,
This is so wonderful....Such questions must be raised, Why do we do things that we shouldn't, musn't do..........
One question: Are you the same R. K. of whom Arundhati Roy talked about in, perhaps, Eng of Imagination ?

With my warmest regards,

Comment In my poem 'A Paperweight' I make the point that, in this divided world, unity is present in the semblance of disunity.

With reference to your poem, I think it is the end as seen from the point of view of Divine Providence that provides the equality and justice which the world in human eyes, as you see it, denies. It is in the last analysis that justice is seen to be done: the man of faith, be he rich or poor, is blessed with that knowledge, It is the message of Christ.

However, and here is the punch-line, nothing in the whole world can be other than a contextual act, therefore nothing can occur other than how it could not otherwise be - from alpha to omega.
