    Did I win to loose everything
    or did I loose everything to win.
    These two lines of this amazing poem forced me to think who will be a winner in an atomic war? Or both will be losers!

    Different perspectives of life we see around us, yet the life remains the same......Its our perspective that leads our way..........
    Among those numerous views about life, this metaphorical write is a lovely gem
    Indeed life is a chess, but are we the masters of our fate, or just pawns in hands of others? ...........we seek the answer............
    a well composed write dear

    Each twist and turn comes in WITH surprises.
    It's just A calculations.
    Stalemate is also a result in Chess.
    With your analogy you can compare chess with a war, wrestling, tennis, badminton etc....
    Lovely poem

    Spare a thought for the simple pawn
    who having moved can never go back
    To kill, be killed or to flower as a queen
    His destiny if he reaches the last rank
    And each king may share a common fate
    Something we call a very stale mate

    (Good work - keep writing)

    Somehow we have to make the moves. It is important that in your chess game played with life`s situations, we are all seen around close.
    I enjoyed reading your poem reaching out to the situations as rivals with might.

    A Beautiful poem comparing life to a game of chess! Success depends on how well we make our move and to some extent our luck! Whether a sucess or a failure, if one can celebrate life, no doubt, it in itself will be a success. Your jubilant spirit predominates in all your poems!

    I don't know why I had problems in locating your page and sending comments! Geetha, thanks for your sweet comments

    Someone once calculated how many possible moves in a chess game... more than there are atoms in the universe! But even if we could know and use all, only a few moves would win most games.
    Perhaps life has more moves than chess and certainly more complicated ones that have more far reaching
    consequences. To win at chess one must be disciplined and discipline is one vital source to success in life.

    In a war you lose even when you win. Please read my poem 'Peace Lesson from History' which has some sentiments of war and peace. Thank you.
    I congratulate you on reaching a high rank among poets in the World and in India. Keep maintaining high quality in your poems. Wish you all the best in your writing.

    If the loss is for Dharma(for Truth and Justice) as Arjuna one can be proud of even after such a heavy loss or one can bereave as Gandhari, mother of Kauravas. Your poem is very good.I give 10/10 (Report) Reply
