Krishnarasa Seshadri

Am I Not Rich!

He asked me if I were rich.
Am I not?
I own the Eighteen Puranas
The Twelve Upanishads,
Four Vedas, and Two Epics,
And a thousand ragas and thalas.
The Himalayas, The Ganges
The plains, plateaux, the Protector,
Floods, ravines and fables….
Every time I hear the words
‘Bharatha Ghande, Bharatha Varshe, Jambu Dwipe….’
I own it all……
Tell me if I am not opulent!
