    Human being trying to make itself wholly perfect and beautiful with truthful and dedicated life is a wonderful thing to imagine. Here the gurudev Rabindranatha Tagore writes about his offering of pearl chain which made by the tears as the pearl and submits himself to the allmighty. Wonderfully written. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
