The One that Sounds Like Meat

Obviously, it is not coming from your plate or palate. Let me differ no more, when the news are in circulation about "The Cow" as Shashtra Mata I quiver with the discovery of bones in my pav bhaji at a reasonable restaurant. Our MPs and leaders might insist on being purified or healed with the touch of Gau Mata but when I under a mute disposition pray that Hinduism might be able to clean my mind, bring me rest I feel unsure. For me, differing on the food components is as essential as to a supposition that a human being is required to fill one's stomach. Still it is wide chasm between what we are answerable for and what really goes well with our gastrointestinal juices.

For all times I have come to realize one thing, it is not discovering a bad peanut at end of the wholesome snack in your mouth ruining all the taste, especially if it is in your mouth not elses. I am required to take a decision rather than luck can struck something out for me. It is not comforting at all. Yes, restaurant owners are not biased or racist. They do not give, they give, they do not give as according to prevalent sentimentality. One quick marketing tip for them would be an Indian is no longer a Bharat Son or Daughter, so don't expect from them a sacrosanct behavior.

There is no moral dilemma here, you know. Can you for a moment think about the globalisation, no one company cares that you come from India or Afghanistan (In short time). All they need is the quality of work and the ethics and it comes from observing the local culture and being very tolerant of it. Rest the speed of internet is so fast that till someone reasonably stand to prove a thing or two about the various causes, the masses have already gulped down their slice of supposed gluttony.

India is gradually making an effort to establish the farmer's destiny in terms of national identity and for them, the cow is one of mantra that could not only provide sustenance but also the same ethics and work principles the NRIs, expats are working on hard to retain their global positions. For them, it is about liberalization but the state of farmers is cruel. It is about the scent of the earth, the purity and essence of the cow's products. This idea is hard at home front to put across because the benefactor himself is in the conundrum of survival.

Anyway, the global companies are already rooting for food services at their quarters which involves broad spectrum products such as algae to alleviate the cultural distortions and sensitivity of their employees. Meantime, the people can you look a little well at your plate. Is it only the beef because you know the cow well and the buffalo is another option in range of meats that you go for? The restaurants might have to take the blunt of irate nationalistic Indians, in certain case. Another tip is obviously to suggest other variety of international cuisine and believe me, Indians will be accommodating when accompanied with health benefiting sutras and up front popular eating practices.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

Has Always Been

First Published on Poem Hunter

Once wide open
does seems the world is
riding on breeze
for a moment of thought

my pen is pouring
celebration of life, an afterthought
in own musing of ideas
where a tear is no longer a fear
nothing devises as found in

eternal or has always been.

Open-Ended Questions and Advaita Vedanta

What we decipher through eyes could almost be a truth but is there need to confirm to everything. Prior to internet the world we lived in, we exchanged information in professional spheres. Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.  Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next? There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …
