    My cherished Present
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Give me not all sorts of wealth
    Neither give me, joys and pleasures
    I don't desire life like Gods*
    Neither give me prosperous abodes
    All I ask is the eternal gift
    Of ShriVishnu's lotus feet
    If someone could just give me these
    I'll serve them I promise without fees
    This life has never cherished much
    Perishable items of plastic and dust
    And neither jewels nor happy smiles
    All I wish for now is a devoted life
    To the Feet of Lakshmi Narayana
    I desire just that perfection
    I never lose a thought of them (that's my prayer)
    And give me neither jewels or gems
    I've known devotees many such
    Who conquered senses by his Feet's dust
    Then can I not conquer my petty mind
    If just for once, I am blessed by his sight?

    *I here use the words Gods because here I mean to say people who consider themselves as God and who are rich and egoistic due to that. God is only one, writing Gods isn't correct. For celestials other than ShrimanNarayana, they are called Devi- Devatas.

    I am tired of my foolish mind and desires. If someone could gift me the taste of ShriVishnu's Lotus Feet then I will be an unpaid servant to him/her. (This is the role of an Acharya though �� one who joins us with His Lotus Feet is an Acharya and none else.)

    Fly to the sky with your dreams but let your feet be grounded in reality.

    I can't do this. I cannot give up. I am here back again
    Thanks for the cherished advices @dollysehgal Didi and @harvest_of_mind Sir. I am not giving up, my ShrimanNarayana. ������ I am extremely sorry for my immature act.

    Merciful ShriLakshmi
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Oh Lakshmi, the beloved of Hari
    You know the heart of each being
    My mind craves for devotion
    And selfless love if not perfect
    Oh merciful, won't you grant me that?
    May I be the one who serves
    The servants of servants of servants of Lord
    Selflessly may my mind wander
    On your and Hari's twin Lotus Feet
    Oh merciful, won't you grant me that?
    May Oh Mother I shall engage
    In all acts that please you and him
    Who are my sole refuge and God
    I know no other as capable as you
    Oh merciful, won't you grant me that?
    You are the eternal companion of Mukunda
    You are Jagada Anandadaayini
    You shower your Vatsalya towards sinners
    I deserve it the most Oh Ma Lakshmi!
    Oh merciful, won't you grant me that?
    May along with me, my all relatives
    And friends and the people I have ever known
    Be the objects of your matchless mercy
    There's nothing more valuable than this for me
    Oh merciful, won't you grant me that?
    Henceforth I won't ask a thing
    Whether you keep me blissful or sad
    For save your love, what shall belong to me
    Which is the rare to rarest of jewel
    Oh merciful, won't you grant me that?

    Mukunda - one who grants liberation
    Jagada Anandadaayini- One who provides bliss to the world (by connecting Jeevas to Parmatma)

    Sri Kulshekhar Alwar says in his Mukund Mala Stotram Verse 27:

    मद् जन्मनः फलं इदं मधु कैटभारे
    मत् प्रार्थ्नीय मद् अनुग्रह एष एव |
    त्वद् भृत्य भृत्य परिचारक भृत्य भृत्य
    भृत्यस्य भृत्य इति मां स्मर लोक नाथ ॥ २५ ॥

    maj-janmana: phalamidam madhu-kaiTabhArE
    mat-prArthanIya-mad-anugraha Esha Eva |
    bhRtyasya bhRtya iti mAm smara lOka-nAtha || 27

    O enemy of Madhu and Kaiṭabha, O Lord of the universe, the perfection of my life and the most cherished mercy You could show me would be for You to consider me the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of Your servant.

    May I blessed be with such a fortune! ����

    It's tail were given it for a purpose
    The strongest of them all
    Diving with grace, through the ocean
    Without limit or pressure weighed down
    It swims on gracefully
    through the waters of life
    Likewise your feet, were given to you
    To bring you to your place,
    Where You Truly Belong
    The strongest of them all
    The authority to rule your world
    As you lay claim, to what's rightfully yours.

    Often, when we are heartbroken we forget to look beyond our hurt and misery only to realise that this was a lesson we had to learn and just like scratching a sandpaper on a surface might feel rough but in the end it leaves the surface shining, we too arise from our pain as a radiating light.

    I mistook you for a home
    Placing my emotions inside of you.

    Alas! I didn't realise
    People are rivers,
    Ever changing,
    Ever flowing,
    Not a boat to be anchored.

    I sat down
    Letting the scorched sand
    Absorb my tears
    Only to see the silt deposit at my feet.

    Oh My Godha
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Oh my little Godhe
    Come, crawl to my lap,
    Let me sanctify myself with
    The dust of your tiny lotus feet
    Come my sweet love, take a nap
    Your large eyes, like spears for Hari
    Are lotuses to the lake of my Heart
    Are bringing me immense joy
    Along with your mere sweet sight
    Oh Godhe, aren't you personified piece of art?
    Your little lips curl into a smile,
    Oh Vallabhaa of RangNayak,
    What magic you hold in them?
    Oh my sweet child, please rest in my vicinity,
    Beside you Ma, who's my Sahayak?
    Come sit in my lap Kodai
    Let's defeat the beauty of a pearl and it's shell
    Found in the deepest Oceans
    Of exquisite perfect charm
    Let's show your mercy which is matchless
    Oh Godha of Greenish Complexion,
    Oh Swayam Bhumi, the forbearer
    I wish, I pray to every divinity
    May your Feet live long in my Heart,
    Without a worry and till forever

    Happiest Birthday to our dearmost ShriGodha Maa ������������������������❤❤❤❤
    For her story, you can refer to my post in ShriRaasRaajeshwar 2. #ShriGodha_story

    Here, in this poem, I ask my little Godha to come crawl in my lap and make me feel blissful and alive. �� Oh the Most Compassionate Mother, come to me and stay with me! Her face is purely Anandmayi (Blissful), and it gives me immense joy. I get joyful watching her little hands and feet ready to embrace me and the little smile curled on her lotus like Face. Her complexion is Greenish ����❤
    I wish ShriGodha comes to me and sits on my lap soon and embrace me. So, that the world sees her Infinite Compassion, that she the loving mother, embraces even her most sinning children like me! When she, the shining green pearl will sit on my lap, we'll look together as the rusty oyester holding an exquisite pearl! While I am a sinner faded as an oyester, she would be my only source of beauty (bliss) when I hold her. Just compare a pearl sitting in a rusty oyester and then me holding ShriGodha in my lap ���� And bow down to her compassion and forbearance!
    Therefore I wish, the Lotus feet of the compassionate Mother live forever in My Heart without any obstacles! ❤

    Happiest Birthday to the Queen of ShriRangNayak (ShriVishnu) ����������������❤��������

    Dear feet

    Stay connected with mother earth
    Don't follow anyone
    make your own path
    Don't bound yourself with limit
    Just break all the girth
    Where no one come before
    Put them on that spot
    Even if they are filth.

    Odd Dream

    Just roused from a deep, calm state of sleep
    I'd been having a dream, unusual but pleasant.
    Dreams this lucid and with features so symbolic
    Always make me wonder what they represent.

    I dreamt my puppy had gotten off his leash
    And climbed into the car of a friend.
    My pup stepped in for cuddles with the girl in the back,
    Ignoring my pleas to come back to no end.

    Surrounding their car was a camping tarp
    Which concealed something so out of place.
    It was serving as a shelter... around a pond!
    Thinking of this brings a real smile to my face!

    Their "camping car" was not their usual car.
    It was a silver Volvo station wagon! Ultra vintage yet sleek.
    Suddenly my kids were there too, hanging out in the back,
    And my friend and I sat down at the pond to speak.

    I submerged my feet in the pond-water,
    My friend beside me did the same.
    As we did, different turtles swam past our feet
    And rose to the surface, again and again!

    Then one turtle, different looking and more prominent than the others
    Stepped out of the water entirely, for us to see.
    Then like in a nature documentary, some voice-over announced:
    "To witness this type of turtle step onto land is such a rarity!"

    We remained sitting with our feet dangling in the water,
    Both amazed to see a turtle so rare.
    Then my feet began to get touched by I-don't-know-what, his feet or turtles?
    But still, there we remained, without a worry or a care.

    Then that was that! My dream state ended.
    My eyes opened, and I slowly woke up.
    What sense is to be made from secret car ponds, with turtles, I haven't a clue.
    But thanks for taking us there,
    My little dream-pup!

    Seeking Refuge
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Oh ShriHari, I need thy help
    For thy grace surpasses
    All kinds of wealth
    I need your mercy
    My Lord, my Charmer
    For am poor and I lack
    Thy perfect Shelter.
    Oh Lord let me grow
    Under thy Feet
    No other niche,
    May my Heart seek!
    Oh perfection of each virtue
    My Lord, My Hero,
    May my love be true
    Towards only thy bestowing Feet
    Nothing shall my mind
    Neither I do seek!
    But Oh Lord am poor
    Neither humble by Heart
    Then what do I deserve
    Oh kind at Heart?
    I deserve punishments
    Of every hell
    For I am deficient
    Yet much reckless
    But Oh Generous one
    I believe in you
    That you won't forsake me,
    My Heart says so
    Hence Oh lovely one
    Wielding a discus
    Give me thy refuge
    And terminate my distress
    I trust you much
    So be it wholesome
    For Oh Vishnu, sans surrender
    Every path's cumbersome!

    *Cumbersome- slow and inefficient

    So what was I seeking till now? Yes, that's devotion! Devotion to ShriHari's and ShriVaishnavas' feet. But how may I achieve it, for one who achieves such devotion without any effort becomes the Greatest and is revered everywhere- ShriVaikunth or Earth. Therefore, when Krishna speaks of three yogas in Bhagwat Geeta as means to attain Moksha, in the end shloka 18.66 which is the Charam-Shloka in our tradition, he speaks of forsaking all ways and surrender unto him, He will take care of everything else then. Hence, from now ask nothing from him, but simply surrender! Simply HIS REFUGE! He shall deliver you! This is his promise!
    ❇Om Namo Narayanaye!

    And ShrimadGeeta 18.66, the Lord Promises:
    ❇sarva dharmān parityajya mām ekaṃ śaraṇaṃ vraja |
    ahaṃ tvā sarva-pāpebhyo mokṣayiṣyāmi mā śucaḥ || 66 ||

    66. Completely relinquishing all Dharmas, take refuge in Me alone. I will release you from all sins, grieve not.

    Hints of color could define what you're not happy with. The same shades could tell what was best instead.

    Flaunt with whatever you have to find that happiness. Yet unable to find it? Add them with colors ❤️

    Mind in storm yet it desires to write
    Feeling breezy in this summer vibe
    This air soaking the warmth of sunlight
    Birds flying in air weave some poetic lines

    Then at dusk sun dissolves
    in ocean immersing completely
    with passing seconds its shine convolve
    Calming the uproar of tides in serenity

    Gently caressing those waves
    Illuminating every stream with sunrays
    Across the beach and around caves
    Teasing the sand covered seashells

    To meet my poetry it has become keen
    Starting its journey azure sky it greets
    Traverses its way with gliding dolphin
    And touches the bottom of my feet

    Bullying !

    Well the very idea of bullying is quite deep-rooted in the annals of Indian history. Even the great Karna wasn't spared off this ordeal and the bitter irony is that instead of being frowned upon, bullying is something which has been traditionally accepted to be very basic and part of growing up. We have historically been so liberal about condoning bullying that one can literally feel it in the air. Well the binary basis of categorisation and distinction between the "bullying ones" and the "bullied ones" is quite steep and literally no can climb the chasm of disparity.

    The bullied ones have to battle the perpetual fear of being bullied and ridiculed right from the day they step in the school premises. Moreover, unlike the equations of amicable companionship and coarsened animosities which are susceptible to varying degrees and changes with due passage of time, bullying is not dynamic and the equation once formed remains unaltered for eternity. The "bullying ones" tend to bully always and "bullied ones" tend to remain bullied forever.

    My sincerest thanks to the advancement in communication technology which has facilitated mankind in general to take a giant leap and have brought us all together with the help of internet. So there ain't any shying away from the truth that irrespective of the fact that whether we extend our cordial participation or not but we are participants and part of plethora of WhatsApp groups dedicated to our respective class, batch, house, team, zone, school, department, batch, branch, office, school and there won't be any end to this.

    Sometimes these groups are voluntarily constituted and sometimes much to your chagrin you just simply allow yourself to be roped into those WhatsApp institutions sometimes owing up to peer pressure and sometimes fear of being left out. Now circling back to the inherent agenda of these WhatsApp groups which are excellently organized institutions often formed by the sucessful and influential alumnus of alma mater, who have certainly done better than their counterparts and with motivation to bring everyone under an universally unified and recognised umbrella.

    So when the immaculate sense of Noblesse oblige and belongingness brainstorms the heart of sentinels of unity, then they take the initiative and armed with dedicated passion and sense of unity in addition with pinch of inclusiveness, modicum of nostalgia alongwith not so apparent agenda of exercising the very idea of subjugation and domination to the optimum establish WhatsApp groups, which by and large are virtual cum digital bullying setups where the "bullying ones" indulge into verbal arm twisting of "bullied ones" in bid to maintain their dominant status quo in the garb of fun and reminiscing about the lost nostalgia.

    These WhatsApp groups often tend to ignore the prevalence of bullying and a lot of people act so cool about it. Bullying is practiced without any inhibitions and certain episodes which are harsh and difficult to make peace with are clandestinely brushed inside the rug of jocular nature of school bosom buddies and their birthright to mock and make fun.

    We Indians are so supportive about bullying that people can actually make a career out of bullying. We are super cool about ridiculing people and people who can perform cyber bullying can actually make fame and fortune out of videos mocking people for their choices and ironically become national heroes. We must understand that how blurry and hazy it may look, there is a thin line between humour and humiliation, sarcasm and subjugation, comedy and constrain.

    How indifferent we remain to the prevalence of bullying but it'll always remain an uncomfortable truth and very part of our existence. Bullying ones can actually never feel the pain and pang of humiliation which bullied ones go through. The bullied ones are made to believe that they are misfit and unfit for being the part of that group or organisation. The bullied ones are one who actually live the fear of being part and still be apart in flesh and bone. The permanent damage and pyschological repercussions that bullying casuses are actually beyond repair and impossible to overcome. It's indeed hard to resurrect oneself from millions of shattered shards of self esteem and confidence.

    One can never feel the real pain of being bullied untill and unless one steps into the shoes and walk a mile but sadly enough there are millions of pairs of feet but there aren't enough shoes to accommodate those feet.

    Watching my favourite couple, my God
    I wonder at their beauty eloquent
    I wonder of my wonderful Lord!
    See, the lovely Ramaa Devi
    Wearing the garments red alike
    The setting Sun, which comes to fall
    On the Sea like body of Madhav
    See, those lovely red eyes
    Fixed on the dark eyed Shri
    See those beautiful lips
    Which seem like lotus petals!
    See the beautiful Kamalaasini*
    With dense locks of dark hair
    Which tie the embrace of Hari
    Just like Maya ties the Jeevas
    Oh everyone look at my LakshmiNarayana!
    Behold this lovely sight
    My eyes just found a treasure
    Behold this grandeur exquisite!

    *Ma ShriLakshmi is called Kamalaasini which means the one who has Lotus as her seat��❤
    Oh Everyone, just behold my Lovely ShriHari. Aren't they soooooooooo Beautiful!? ❤�� Look at those eyes, look at those lips, look at their body and look at their most beautiful feet ����

    In Realtime

    So hard to hide the struggle
    Sitting in my sister old room
    That turned into my mom's office
    In a house i don't have a key to
    3am up and ready
    6am I'm walking out the door
    Sometimes to a job
    Sometimes to nowhere
    Walking until my legs get tired
    Until my feet hurt
    Then I push some more
    Heart beating fast
    Brain on go
    But I sit here staring
    At the wall
    Sitting here in the dark
    Trying to hide it
    But i really don't know
    What to say
    What to do
    So i sit here and do nothing

  • spontaneous_flow_of_emotion 47w

    You sit there
    Arms around yourself,
    Your head on your knees,
    Watching the ebb and flow
    Of the tides.

    A thousand stars
    Reflecting on your eyes,
    Your lips betraying a smirk
    As I crash and rise
    Yet again,
    Like the waves
    Beating against the shore,
    Desperately trying to reach your feet
    And wash away all your pain.
