The Right Path and the Right Gait?

What is the right path?

And who knows it?

Even if you find it,

How do you walk righteously on it? 

What is the right pace? 

Who knows the best gait for it?

Is it the fastest sprinter,

Or the most thoughtful wins it? 

Is it an individual quest,

Or we collectively walk on it?

Can anyone critique the walk,

Or the Creator only has the right? 

Do all the walkers on the path look the same,

Or different people walk on it?

And the flowers and the weeds,

Do they grow together on it? 

Is it a mistake

Or the Creator so designed it? 

Does everyone has the view of the stars,

Or only a few have the advantage for it?

Is the focus on the destination absolute,

Or can you care for the weak on it? 

Is walking the most important,

Or is it okay to rest on it? 

What is the right path?

And who knows it?

Even if you find it,

How do you walk righteously on it?

Levels of Peace

In a post last September, I tried to explore what makes a heart peaceful and it helped me understand that a peaceful heart or a combination of peaceful hearts can lead to global peace. It all starts with who I am, how I perceive others and interact with them, how I use my influence in a group and how my group deals with issues in my society at large. No, I am not responsible for everything that goes around me but I may have a certain level of influence on it. I may fail sometimes but I might succeed on other times and it is worthwhile to try! I am many people. I am a soul, have a gender and age, am a family member, I belong to a religious group, have a certain educational background, represent a professional organization, have a nationality and so on and so forth. Some of me may remain the same and some of me can change but all of me continues to evolve. The good news is that I can decide in which direction I want to evolve and what type of influence I want to have on my inner bein

To you, Tat!

This poem is for a powerful woman in Louisiana. Her name is Arizola Spears and she is 92 years old. Throughout her life she always fought for civil rights and the right to vote for all. She had contracted COVID-19 a few weeks ago. But you know what, not only she  conquered  the virus, she went ahead and voted in these very important  presidential  elections in  the  United States. If she, at 92 after surviving corona virus, is not tired, how can we? Her  grit and grace inspires all around her and everyone that hears of her and what she has achieved!  Mrs. Arizola Spears I hardly know you, And we have never met Yet you inspire every bit of my being, Ever beautiful, Tat! I had heard of your strength, Your sophisticated style, Your hard earned stature in the society, And even in the storms, that resilient smile! I am in awe as I learn, the depth of your strength, the grandeur of your style, Your endurance and its length! Not even COVID-19 could stop you, You conquered the virus with elega

Gang-rape in Delhi: Disgusting and Disappointing

Delhi is the best place in the world for me but one thing that keeps me away from it is general disrespect for women in the city. Recently, in the capital city of the biggest democracy of the world, a young woman was raped by 6 men and is fighting for life. The victim is a 23 year old medical student, who happened to be with a male friend on the roads of New Delhi late evening. The men, including the bus driver Ram Singh, had taken out the bus for a joy ride on Sunday evening. They spotted the student and her friend at the Munirka bus stop in south Delhi and called out to them saying the bus was headed to Dwarka, where the woman lives. On the bus, the sources said, an argument began when the accused asked the man what he was doing with a young woman at that time of the night. The police sources said because she fought back hard, the assailants decided to "teach her a lesson". {Source: NDTV, Dec. 18 2012 (
