The Thames

The water of the Thames is not the gateway to heavens
Though it is surrounded by strange actions and notions
The water is dusty, though people around look fair
Strangled in cobwebs, feelings they do not share
What is the origin of the Thames, and where the destination
Such questions do not become a part of our imagination.
The Thames just exists…! It is a part of the nature
Yes! It is surrounded by a world of art and culture.
The Thames is now a creek and now an ocean.
For her, people have no respect or admiration.
In the market economy, the rivers remain but rivers
They can become a means of business, but not mothers.
For decades and centuries, the Thames rules over the Ganges
Then shrinks, becomes hapless and keeps searching its gears.
Grandeur and wealth is Thames, Love and emotions the Ganges, 
The Thames is sensory, yearning for Nirvana the Ganges.
Everything around the Thames, is nothing but entertainment
It is our firm spiritual belief in the Ganges that helps attainment.
