Incredible India (A Tryst With the Naga Sadhu)

In the hamlets and thorps
Came the Naga sadhu,
Matted, old and bearing
For the alms
Whatever it may be,
Without asking for,
Speaking less,
Hinting more,
Prophesizing truthfully
Seeing the forehead
And telling of the power of celibacy
By showing the locked penis.

The whole village of the Brahmin households
Stood in utter wonder and amazement,
Marking the celibacy,
The power to transcendence sex,
Purge the body,
The frail, but healthy Naga sadhu,
Going to Prayag
Or for the Kumbh
Or returning to distant and exotic Nagaland not,
But to his hermitage,
Oh, a wadering yogi
meditating somewhere
And lost in transcendental meditation
And the flowing river,
Who can say about?

Incerdible India,
Lying unexplored,
Explore it.
