    Gurudev Tagore's famous poem narrates about the time and its limitations but the infinity of time in the hands of the all powerful lord whose blessings the time allotted and cycle of births and deaths goes on. Every second of time is precious and man's destiny is to live using the very precious time with values and innerawakening. (Report) Reply

    Time is the very precious thing in this life and we human beings are to be make ourselves the limitation of time that has given to us by the divine grace though we cannot understand or read the exactness of longevity of life. But at the sametime we are bound to live at every moment having self conscious about the time and Ravindra Natha Tagore's famous poem is so much interested to read and understand. The holistic approach to time and world situation is a good thing for leading a life of perfection accepting all positive qualities indeed. (Report) Reply

    In this life time is so precious and no one is aware of the exact limitation of time allowed to him for life experience in this world of sorrows and good feelings. The limitation of time is the real value of life which we takes into account and the human being is aware of the preciousness of life in the point of time. Ravindra natha Tagore's poem is very happy to read and enjoy in its good feeling. (Report) Reply

    O my Lord
    At the end of the day I hasten in fear
    lest thy gate be shut;
    but I find that yet there is time. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
