the flair of bounty

It always bothered me

why rewards and awards

and the associated bounty

so attractive to the people?

why is the prize so important?

why is the cash so pivotal?

are the efforts not conclusive?

are the attempts not sufficient?

are the endeavours not decisive?

are the initiatives not credible?

why there a mad rush for the top?

is the participation not gratifying?

so, let us join the race

for the objective desired

not to win the race but

to be at the right place!



my discovery

read of many wanderers

studied of many discoverers

I too wanted to become one

experience offered me true lesson

when the life emerged brutal

when the situations were hostile

when left with no alternatives

I discovered my real relatives

when loneliness started wounding

when emotions began confounding

when everyone failed to comprehend

I discovered my real friend

when survival created doubtfulness

when life boat became rudderless

when road ahead was occupied

I discovered my real guide

when thoughts expressed are mediocre

when the meaning is not recognized

when encountered mutual borrowers

I discovered my real followers

when writings are from the heart

when i am forced to think smart

when the mystery unfolds thyself

I discover the real myself
