O.P.Bhatnagar's Cooling Flames Of Darkness - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

O.P.Bhatnagar's Cooling Flames of Darkness
Which saw the light of the day
In 2001
Includes in The Turn of The Century
As the first poem
To begin in an ironical way
Is to talk of the split and divided self,
Torn beyond repair.

What creatures are we the human beings
As we have lost divine innocence
Is the thing
Of the poem, Song of Innocents,
Where he opines about
The loss of the appetite
And the vision of innocence
Which we used to be endowed with.

Again, consolidating his base, he turns to
The ravaged children of the ravaged times
After marking the war-torn countries,
Engaged in warfare and militancy,
With no pity in the heart
To spare and speak of,
How ruthless have we become,
How mindless are these wars costing human lives!

Risen Or Fallen, is the thing, he discusses
In the poem of the name,
When were we risen,
When have we fallen,
What did the foreigners do,
What good had it been in them,
But after attaining freedom,
Still needs to be done?

The poem, Beauty Queening is all about
The beauty contests and pageants,
The florists and costume directors,
The panelist judges and the jury
Sitting and judging
Mr. India, Miss India
or Miss or Mr. World,
Walk the ramp in fancy dresses,
Bikini babes and beach girls?
