Ratnakar Mandlik

Ratnakar Mandlik Poems

In serene guise a celestial beauty
You profess principle of equality.
Embodiment of benevolence,
At times you are cruelty's essence.

Man is mortal and death is certain
So my beloved remove all the curtains
Hanging between you and reality
My boy mind well, it is your duty.

Riding the waves of sorrow
Gliding through imagery
In pursuit of salvation
Flies a poet's imagination.

Riding on the waves of sorrow and mirth
Traverses life of human if the sail is smooth.
Hurricanes n tornado with mountainous tides
No doubt to it capsize n it's doom they decide.

India's cultural capital n Oxford of the east
Are the identities acquired by the Pune city.
A hub of education and I.T. centre universal
Has now become once the Peshwa's capital.

Myopic vision on development'
Ushered in through materialism'
Fueled and fanned by egos
Of path breaking intellectuals,

Human conceptualized the best Polity
For superb governance, is the democracy
That ensures for every one equal opportunity
Desisting in any form rule of any dynasty.

Adieu 2015 and Welcome sweet sixteen
Memorable may become on planet your sojourn.
15 for a human, a ripe age for rebellion,
16 for floating or chasing dreams or infatuations.

The tale tell marks of beauty spots
In devastation caused by cyclones
Knocks on our imagination
Forcing revisiting it in visualization.

Solitude makes melancholy to you
Driving the mirth from you away,
Depriving you of the worldly joys.
You get nothing though you grieve

At an infinite distance from this planet
Roaming stars in the galaxy we can not count
And on a clear night when we probe them
A genuine joy we get from the beauty supreme.

Riding on wishes of dear ones,
Gliding through imaginations,
In company of P.H. fraternity,
I have touched the age of seventy.


Incessant rains, heavy down pour,
Inundating roads, bazars and residences.

Not failure, low aim is crime
Big bangs too produce unique chime.
Blank can not a life's canvas be
With ample strokes of pain n glee.


Many a wars the freedom fighters fought
To free you motherland from shackels of slavery
Displaying rare couragethey martyred with bravery
And threw to the winds their dear ones lot.

Our Kerala tour moved like a pendulum
For a while only at Ernakulum.
Hotel Suneeti Suites on highway forty seven
Though gave us a feeling that we were in heaven.


The mesmerizing nature,
With it's marvels picturesque
And stunning scenic beauty,
A proof of the Creator's bounty.

Lies and insinuations
By chieftains in deception
Hurled against each other
Aims at polity's shatter.

Wisdom built-up by penance of sages
Rewarded in legacy for the whole humanity,
Yoga is the worship of the precious life,
In expression for the God our gratitude,

The Best Poem Of Ratnakar Mandlik

An Ode To Nature

In serene guise a celestial beauty
You profess principle of equality.
Embodiment of benevolence,
At times you are cruelty's essence.
Oh greatest master craftsman,
Is human for you mere pawn?

Oh darling master of the universe
Your incarnations are quite diverse.
Enchanting are your landscapes
Mountains and valleys are picturesque.
You are no doubt very great
With motley forms, though intricate.

Oh bountiful and beloved creator,
Lovable are your acts as the provider.
Awesome are your forms when in rage,
Devastating then becomes it's rampage.
Cloud bursts and deluge on one hand
On other are parched human n parched land.
