A Pilgrimage

16832063_1830147087234339_6025612506437213613_n
By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

A mark of cultural identity,
Illuminated Heritage buildings;
A place that confers spiritual wisdom
Freeing you from horrors of the deep
And terrors of the skies;
A perfect place for a man
To spend his days in silence
Enjoying harmless joys of solitude
With a guiltless heart, free
From all dishonest deeds
And thoughts of vanity.
 
Breeze carrying the aromatic scents
From the incense sticks
To cleanse the confined air; and
A soul freed from it’s bodily robes.
A place of quiet, breaking into occasional
Rhapsodies; towing a spiritual line,
*Aarti: marking the onset of dawn and dusk
Promoting meditation and the study of astronomy.
In this tech-savvy age the birthdays of the deity
are traditionally and lavishly celebrated.

Beyond hatred and tears
Is a twinkle of a lamp
Glimmering through the darkness
Like some ancient star.
The crown of glory scorning all the cares
That fate or fortune brings,
A pilgrim, arrested by the
Ambiance immersed in worship, now dutifully surrenders
To the sacred stone, his Divine Majesty;
Irrespective to the caste of the person who carved it
And melts under its power swaying humbly
All the time awestruck at the timelessness
Of the mysteries surrounding its ageless past.

*Aarti also spelled arti, arati, arathi, aarthi (In Devanagari: आरती ārtī) is a Hindu religious ritual of worship, a part of puja, in which light from wicks soaked in ghee (purified butter) or camphor is offered to one or more deities. Aartis also refer to the songs sung in praise of the deity, when lamps are being offered.

What is AUM?

A Hormonal Meltdown

Menopause_art

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Easily displeased
Quick to be disappointed
Crushed by weight gain and calcium depletion
Sagging breasts and a pear shaped figure
Aching bones and aching patella
Stretch marks and varicose veins
Inadequate and solemn answers to questions
Sometimes too critical or aggressive
And a hormonal meltdown….

~o~

Keen intelligence yet detached humour
Mid age crisis; searching for eternal love
Zero tolerance to bull shit and attitude
Or laughing at herself
Sometimes a stranger even to herself
Hot flushes; fluctuating blood pressure
Progression from heels to flats…Occasionally
Missing a step while climbing or walking
And a hormonal meltdown….

~o~

Superior knowledge; experienced, affectionate,
Queer, funny yet tender and understanding by default
Echoing silences and self-castrations
Occasionally crossing over the line
As they inch towards reaching their prime
A cranky child; trapped in her skin fighting
A losing battle against age spots and wrinkles
They’re in menopause state of mind
Facing a hormonal meltdown….

So Many Dreams I Dream: “Prosetry”

giphy

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

So many dreams I dream
Some whisper gently into my conscience,
While some go ahead crushing my spirits.
Sometimes echoes of past hurt so bad
That I cry out and scream languishing in my bed
My mind a battlefield of paranoia and
Nervousness trying desperately to unravel
The mystery behind it.
 
The other times’ future beckons
And I listen to music from faraway lands;
Either dancing in a chorus or singing a lonely verse
Praying for a deeper vision that prevents me
From unravelling what’s real and true.
Sometimes you walk with me holding my hand
In yours, and I give in to these boundless dreams
Enjoying the elongated hangovers
While the other times we drift away
Like shifting sands under the rushing waters
Of the sea and I keep sitting awake trying
To keep these disturbing dreams away.
 
Praying silently I try to read a deeper
Meaning of these enigmatic dreams
That strike just before the crack of dawn.
I sit for an exam and don’t know the syllabus,
I keep missing my train or my house
Is under a siege of big intimidating felines.
Someone is holding me down pinned
To the bed sitting on my chest while
I struggle and choke on my silent screams.
Some are haunted in their calling
Some enticing and surreal, while
Some leave me naked and stranded
On the crowded roads.
 
So many dreams I dream… and
I’m still trying to unravel these dreams that
Handle and twist my soul with the tip of their icy fingers.

Living in A State Of Denial: “Prosetry”

sand-head

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

I accept that the truth hurts
But what hurts more
Is living in a state of denial.
Afraid of facing the truth.
Overwhelmed by our dysfunctional world
We constantly practice denial
Ignoring reality
Idealising the non-existent
Taking refuge in nostalgia
We refuse to let it go.
Choking on self-respect
I wonder why
We choose to hurt ourselves
By searching for continuous mirth?
Face it. Confront it. Let it go.
Free yourself from the sorrows
Follow your heart
But do listen to your mind for
It knows. For only the
Mind can treat the cancer
Of living in a state of denial
