Treasure Island

Dr. Yogesh Sharma

(1-7-1959 / india)


Dusshera is a Victory Day,
Victory of Lord Ram over Raven,
Victory of almighty God over devil,
Victory of good over evil,
Victory of dharm over adharm.
It is a victory of life over death.

A victory of hope over despair,
A victory of creation over destruction,
A victory of light over darkness,
A victory of knowledge over ignorance.
A victory of justice over injustice,
Victory of dignity over oppression,
Alas! This victory will remain incomplete,
Till all the Kabeels, Sabeels and Afzals are hanged.

    The reality may be what you speak of in your concluding lines. But there was a king Ashoka, and Kalinga, and the First World War, and the Second World War. And of course, some are craving for the Third World War too.
    Men and war. Long lost and found brothers of the nether world. What are they doing in this heaven-turned-to-hell called Earth?
    Sharmaji, do you think its too late? I ask this in spite of your outpourings...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
