Treasure Island

Bashyam Narayanan


See in you a Ganges and realize your creative potential


Rishikesh Haridwar
We had been to a trip places
On a two days’ programme
It is more a trip to Ganges
Than to the above places
Thrill is the quantum of water
And its flow
We had a dip in its chill high current water
Temples and a number of religious centres
All have a message to convey
All have a point to make
All have a soothing effect
All have a comforting environment
But it is all Ganges all around
People believe it will wash of your sins
Probably Ganges seems to be in a hurry
Threatened by the nature and extent
Of sins I may be required to wash off
This is the first ever time
i attempted to have this holy dip
I do not know as to
Whether at all my sins have been cleaned off wholly
It looks to me
It is not enough you physically dip in its waters
You need to dip your soul into it
Its free huge flow
Indicates the ability of each soul
Capable of cleaning anything in its way
Capable of performing great deeds
Capable of assisting other life systems to survive
Capable of reaching our anywhere with no need for invitation
Capable of flowing downwards and serving the needy
Capable of illnesses of both mind and body
Capable of enriching self and the rest others
This trip makes me see in me a Ganges
Which has great creative and productive potential

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
