Aniruddha Pathak

(25.05.1941 / Godhra - Gujarat)

Life is like walking a precipice


Man, thy mission it is in life,
To watch and walk the precipice,
Oft sharper than the blade of knife,
If lost, restoring balance in a trice,
With an odd chance and choice precise,
If need be with a throw of biased dice,
To fill up anew karmic plate,
And much before it’s tossed by fate.
