A Declaration To The River. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

River Thejaswini, I likes you much
In such a spirit of my own heart
I lived in your care and concern
I likes you as a savor of humans
But river, you undaunted and undeniable
Still a doubt persists in minds
What else your safe concerns of future
That really I know depends on you
Unconscionable actions deprives you
In the effort of non stop flows
Where I presume the danger in depth
I know children today is in false thoughts
And underestimation of your values
River Thejaswini your existence is vital
Your flow is vital, more important
For our own sake, farming, livelihood
From cradle to funeral pyre we depend
To wash our bodies, and keep away sins
River Thejaswini, our future is bleak
Where your sustenance is not ensured.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Rivers are slowly dying in dumping waste and over mining of sand and not an excuse to my own dear Thejaswini.........

    Sir, I have heard of River Tejaswini and her beauty. I haven't visited the places she flows through yet. I understand she originates in the Coorg Forests of Karnataka and traverses Kannur and Kasargode Districts of Kerala before reaching the sea at Nileswaram. I remember you mentioned somewhere that you belong to Kasargode. Tejaswini is, therefore, your mother. This poem expresses the concern of a son. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
