Seeking Solutions - Poem by Ravinder Kumar Soni
Despite my cultivated intelligence and now proverbial ingenuity
Nothing seems to be perfect in whatever I do,
The fear of uncertainty and reproach is the cause of my undoing;
I simply do not seem to have been careful enough.
I have known, studied and tried to measure many things
Several inherent drawbacks have deterred my attempts;
Even the calendar I use is not without its accumulating error; it is not precise,
And the value of the Ayanamsa is in dispute.
In mathematics, the division by zero remains to be defined,
And zero multiplied by zero has no defined value to speak of.
Using this single digit I can prove 1 is equal to 2 which result is a mathematical fallacy.
Amidst all such confusion where do I find myself in the multitude of things and beings?
Where is my actual place in the complex scheme of life?
Most keen observers will point out that I should be given up as lost
For it is difficult to identify a common peculiarity
Superimposed by numerous traits of the differing kinds;
However, there are bound to be few who will unhesitatingly pronounce my loneliness
Making it stand out in the vast multitude of beings.
In both these events, there is the naïve concealment in the presentation of reality
As occurs in the case of the representation of time;
And, I still do not know
Why inner time continues to exist without physical time.
