ಹೂಡದೆ ಗದ್ದೆ ಹಾಳಾಯ್ತು, ನೋಡದೆ ಮನೆ ಹಾಳಾಯ್ತು.

Moments! -Devapriya


Moments…
How precious!
How fleeting!
Like bubbles,
They sprout!
Like sapphire,
They gleam,
And sparkle!
Wistfully, I gaze,
Wondering, would
They reflect,
Exotic hue!
Would they,
Ever wobble,
Quiver or dance?
For ever,
Over and on…
Yet, I shudder,
Somewhere…
At a shadowy
Spooky corner,
A pulsating
Awry thought,
Uneasy doubt,
Loitering in
My heart…
Would they
Rise or burst?
There I see,
All too soon,
They pop up,
And be gone!
Never to hop,
Back as ever,
Looking aside,
As though,
A rule ordained!
Free from all,
Amid variety,
Without trace,
Of thinly pain!
Yet, of course,
Expectation
Come again!
Oh! But lo!
Another bubble,
Flashing all
Afresh, as if
There was none!
With glitter,
Yet unknown!
I muse, ah!
Once again,
And, stealthily,
It goes by too!
Moments…
Yours ever,
Awaitingly!
-Devapriya

The day seemed nice,
The night seemed blue,
It was such a great time,
When I had you.

The days got warm,
The nights got cold,
When you went away,
And left me old.

Here I am,
With you no more,
You tore my heart,
Right from the core.

Me in my own way,
No fear in my eyes,
There’s always a light of hope,
All day and all night.
-Krish

ವೇದ ಸುಳ್ಳಾದರೂ ಗಾದೆ ಸುಳ್ಳಾಗದು.

जाड्यं ह्रीमाति गण्यते व्रतरुचौ दम्भः शुचौ कैतवं
शूरे निर्घुणता मुनौ विमतिता दैन्यं प्रियालापिनि ।
तेजस्विन्यवलित्पता मुखरता वक्तर्यशक्तिः स्थिरे
तत्को नाम गुणो भवेत्स गुणिनां यो दुर्जनैर्नाङ्कितः ॥

Translation:
Dullness is attributed to a modest man;
hypocrisy to one who has a liking for religious observances;
roguery to one who leads a life of sanctity;
cruelty to a warrior;
want of discrimination to one devoted to meditation;
meanness to one who speaks agreeably;
arrogance to a spirited man;
garrulity to an orator; and imbecility to a steady man.
What virtue is there then that is not stigmatised by the wicked?
-It does not matter

न सा सभा यत्स् न सन्ति वृद्धाः
वृद्धा न ते ये न वदन्ति धर्मम् ।
धर्मो न वै यत्र च नास्ति सत्यम्
सत्यं न तद्यच्छलनानुविद्धम् ॥

Translation:
It is not an assembly where there are no elders.
They are not elders if they do not teach Dharma (Righteousness).
It is not Dharma if it does not contain the truth.
It is not truth at all if it is charged with deceit.
-It does not matter
