Chariot of Dreams By Dwarakanath H. Kabadi

Though written earlier, he could not pursue and follow it then
As for being a boy of eighteen to take up commerce,
The kernel of Chariot of Dreams was sown earlier
And he wrote it then,
But could not publish it for so long.

Again, when dusting the racks and shelves,
He found the manuscript
And he went through it,
The work written during his youth
And he accepted and acknowledged the matter finally.

Chariot of Dreams, published in 2002, from Bangalore
Is a poem of an epical format,
I mean a longer poem,
With a prologue and an epilogue,
Gliding along dreams and ideas.

Prologue, The Path of Dreams, The Depth of Dreams,
The Cycle of Dreams, Dreams, The Search,
The Journey of Life, Time and Space, The Colour of Dreams,
The Chariot Design, The Chariot Moves, The Glory of Dreams,
Safe Dreams, The Final Destination, Epilogue, the parts of the poem.

Written under the spate of inspiration, a girl’s influence,
Taking to the example of Shelley, Wordsworth, Burns, Keats and Tagore,
Just like Joyce’s quest after beauty in Araby short story, sketch,
The chariot came on, took him up,
Strode along with divine glimpses.

It is a poem of thought, thinking, image and idea,
A poem of dreams,
The chariot of dreams,
Coming and taking to
And the poet driving along dreamily.

The flights of poesy, the dreams of allegory,
Image and reflection,
Youthful verve and vigour,
The wisps and whiffs of romanticism
As the dreams of love taking over his mindscape.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
