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….

Things from people around you
You stop getting hurt

Let The Magic Work

img_20160515_215143.jpg

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

Rays of light
Peering down from
The cusp of heaven
A heavenly touch of sunshine
Piercing through the cloudy sky
Slipping through the golden gates,
As if blessing me in my
Moments of personal glory,
As my dreams become reality.
 
Looking back I feel
So easy, was the idea of giving it all up!
So easy it was to think of not writing anymore,
But one thing I was not prepared for
Was to tame the voices and the words that
Played truant as I went to bed.
To silence this voice of mine,
To let the words all scatter
And fall around me.

Taking a deep breath
Look upwards and feeling blessed
I walked back inside
To the warmth of home
Throwing away all the uncertainties
To the wind; trusting my instincts
Letting the magic work
Chill out with a glass of wine
As I lay my anxieties of the day to rest.
