The Goal!
by Sony Dalia
Bookmark and Share
  As you descended
Hurtling down from the sky
Awestruck was every one
Wondering how and who could handle thee!

As the Adibhikshu,
Shiva, stood firm
His matted hair spraying across
To contain your apparently inexhaustible energy
And knotted the infinite power, what a sight!

Moved by prayers of Bhagiratha
As He let lose a lock of hair
For you to tumble in joy and dance your way
Following the sage, how sanctified the land turned!

Fortune smiled kindly as you moved
To Rishikesh and on to Haridwar,
The entire plains waited with breathless glee
To welcome and be blessed by you,
Ganga Mayya!

Kings, Kingdoms, Emperors, Empires
Epitomized ephemeral glory, evanescent might,
Invincible Time’s systematic operation…
Mutability, the law of life emphatically established!

Enchantress, energizer, every ripple enigmatic
Changing hues, melodic meandering,
Blissful presence, blessed lives…
We live to depart, depart to live in your tender lap!

Comment In addition to Mukesh William's poems on the Ganges yours is a new one. The Ganges is not a river, not a flowing mass of water, it is indeed a life-line of a nation for millions over million years. It is a poetry, it is an epic and it is the unsnapped umbilical chord between man and divinity.Well composed, Chandramouli sir.

Comment A fine artistic treatment to the COMING of the GANGA from the Heavens to bless the MOTHER EARTH with CELESTIAL BLISS, BEAUTY, WEALTH & OPULENCE of LIFE to flourish till ETERNITY! Sony, the last two stanzas of the lyric are deftly handled with the smart skills of a gifted poet to paint the mind of the reader with thunderous alliteration and dancing picturesqueness! It is poetic frenzy indeed! It is one of the ever best pieces in the whole range(rage) of Indian Poetry in English.
Be blessed with more such creations
