A Page From My Diary While On Tour - Poem by umaprosad das
I passed my days so far in hectic, being deeply engaged in,
In career development activities of the students at their teen,
And now I thought for a change to make tours to different parts,
Enjoying scenic beauties, land and rivers, oceans and deserts.
We roamed in and around the pilgrimages, went to Chennai,
Enjoyed the beauty of Merina Beach with waves found so high;
Then went over to Madurai and saw the great Meenakshi Temple,
Carrying rich cultural heritage for 2500 years, a unique example.
Madurai is famous for jasmine, the flowers of sweet fragrance,
Ladies as well my wife became crazy, a garland on her hair to hang.
She also enjoyed a coolfy, though hesitatingly, because so cheap,
'So cool, so cool, it's very tasteful, made of pure milk, it's fantastic'.
Then we went to Rameswaram, a hustling and bustling pilgrim centre
Where Rama-Lakshamana prayed to Shiva, for King Ravana, to conquer.
Ravana kidnapped Sita, Rama's consort, in a disguise and did flee
Along with the beauty queen to Lanka Palace, flying over the sea.
To be continued...
