The Quiet Despair

In the guilty cigarette’s stolen puffs,

In the love of a friend’s manner gruff,

In the pleasing curve of a young breast,

In the mind gamboling in dialectic unrest,

In the amnesic welcome of the wine,

In the sublime expressiveness of a line,

In the exhilaration of a Sachin ton,

In the round of office politics won,

In the wife’s persistent nagging care,

In the child’s innocent pesky dare,

In  life’s little pleasures I while my time,

Waiting for a universe where you shall be mine

I have always been a great believer. I've flitted from one belief to another, from religion to atheism and from one philosophy to another, until I finally settled on J. Krishnamurti whose philosophy is that there is no philosophy. So now I firmly believe that there is nothing to believe. Now such a belief would, I believe, have been considered dangerous to society if the authorities had believed me to be of any consequence. No man of consequence they believe would waste his time on the pursuit of blogging!

    To make words sing is sure a big test
    You make it look easy, at your hands do they rest ?
    As long as we are fans of Sachin
    Be it doctor, or engineer, its always win-win

    Your biggest fan, doc 🙂
