Cynical loners
suffering from the denial
of bhoga and conjugal yoga
wounded by envious scars
are scowling brusquely
ruminating on their persona
          the doppelgangers merely reflect
          their incomplete facades
Is this why
they absurdly revel
in authoritarian doctrines
masking the sinister pleasures
fraudulently derived from
bullying the women
with misanthropic diktats?
How can they pull
regressively backwards
the new social order
that forges ahead relentlessly
towards progress?
          the symbol of awakened consciousness
will not renounce.

Comments on this Poem

Comment Thank you for your sublime expressions.

Today; we are trapped in the conflict of abstinence, paranoia and hypocrisy on the one hand; and sensual gratification, arrogance and unabashed callousness on the other; both at the cost of individual and global blossoming.

Personally; I "see" and "appreciate" the potential of NAMASMARAN, (JAP, JIKRA, SUMIRAN, SIMARAN or remembering true self), in holistic renaissance.

Comment your expression is, as usual , flawless.
but i think,the time has come for all of us to apply our mind to find some practical, do able solutions to this huge problem,now that it has come to the forefront of all our minds.
death penalty is no answer, aprt from the fact that as a nationa, we are notoriously tardy in executing death penalities.

how does one bring about a change of mindset in younger generations when the old ones are justifying rape and older women themselves insist on blaming younger ones/

all of us need to apply our minds and come up with answers

Comment It is a painful truth that you carefully narrate in a poetic form. Hope, there is a change in mindset.

Comment history has recorded that there is no shame or morals for the shameless and amoral class..... and diktats hold no barrier for the 'nirbhaya'

Comment A poetic order to a psychic aberration,
owing to the,
"suffering from the denial
of bhoga and conjugal yoga."
