S.D. TIWARI

(December.1955 / India)

Godavari


Godavari, southern Ganges of India, could get love of her's,
very closed where she's born, less than hundred kilometers.
But she wanted to look for a hero, conceited of her beauty.
As she could get no matching alliance in her nearby vicinity.
Preferred to voyage thousand miles, to reach her superman.
Lastly met her mate, Bay of Bengal, son of Pacific Ocean.

She did this because her children were living in the east,
had to provide habitation to them; food, water to subsist.
Millions children depend on her, they dwell on her banks.
She helps irrigation; fishing, ecology and vegetation lends.

The largest river of South India, named also as ‘Gautami'.
As said, is an offshoot of Ganges, brought by ‘Gautam Rishi'.
Hindu's great pilgrimage exists at bank of this sacred river.
Many millions people take dip and purify in her holy water.

Originating from ‘Brahmagiri' hills near ‘Trimbakeshwar' town
which is most sacred place for Hindus, their pilgrimage crown.
For ‘Kumbh' holy bath to wash their sins, millions come down.
