Dear Smruti Ranjaniji,
Your poem titled"A Look At Life-43" is a poem that combines philosophy, theology, science and psychology in equal measure. Life is an interminable circle passing from one state of being to another state of being, it doesn't have an end unless and until it is reunited with the fundamental point of origin. The world came forth from that inexhaustible arena and it would revert back to it as such in the course of time. Here on this earth life is an unending journey, the destination is not clearly marked at in any stretch of the imagination, the things that we come across in this world are transitory and fleeting in nature and nothing is a permanent feature of life. The structures and wonders of the world are subjected to change once the novelties are worn off. It is imperative to state here that everything undergoes drastic and dramatic transfiguration and transformation as the world moves on. The transparent nature of the world is presented here in all splendour and vitality. The universe is a miniscule entity compared to the larger realities in store us out there in our permanent residence called heaven. In fact, while living in this world we go through illusions of an enormous kind and the sorry thing is that we don't realise about it as long as we live in this world, we are mesmerised by the beauties of this world, we in fact run after money, wealth, power and positions and in the process of doing so we loose our souls to the use and throw culture and commercialisation. At the end all these exposures to worldly pleasures, we become a bundle of sorrows and worries. Even then we don't learn lessons from our past, we continue to commit the same mistakes again and again.While living in this world we claim that we are something and we are proud of our intellect and other faculties, but the truth is that we all come from the paramount body of a common truth and ultimately we are absorbed into that greater power.Kudos to you Smruti Ranjaniji for composing such a poem of transcendentalistic nature.
