Comment Bijay babu, you rock my boat: Surdas to milkman or paaniwala!! A wide spectrum for the daybreak - poetic, philosophical to daily chore. Very elevating! I need to read all these to get the real feel of your intense liking of the verse. Thank you very much.

Comment While clutching it along, there comes the images of the child, its toothpaste smile and the morning, but who is it knocking at the door, the child or the morning? Surdas' Krishna as a child or the scene is of Jayashankar Prasad's Kamayani or other? Maybe it Suryakant Tripathy Nirala's night queen dressed as beauty with the black sari brocaded or embroidered with stars twinkling has walked away giving way to John Donne's Sun Rising. Maybe it the doodhwalla or the paaniwallah is calling at morn. The British saheb not, but the Indian saheb is still sleeping, keeping late, failing to arrive in time, taking bed tea without brushing up, how can it be, sir? There was a time when the house sparrows used to chirp and twitter at morn, but now live they not in cemented buildings.
