...who is a POET??...he is...but a dethroned king sitting among the ashes of his palace trying to fashion an image out of the ashes...
..he is the poorest of the poor..yet he carries an oasis in his heart cultivated by the caravan of his thinking...he is a pauper..but he still pretends to be a ' prince ' in the kingdom of his vivid imagination..
..he only sings when he is starving for he cannot sing if his mouth be filled with food...
..he only raises his hand to beg for he cannot raise his hands if it be filled with gold...
..his wealth is his winged imagination and fictive power to think...and ' thinking ' always acts for him as the stumbling stone to ' poetry '... :) ;)
..he is a tree watered by the river of beautiful thoughts..and carries in his heart a lamp unconquered by darkness..
..yes..he seeks NIRVANA..not by counting coins of gold..but in leading his sheep to greener pasture..in seeking a smile from humanity...in putting his child to sleep..and in writing the last line of his poem... :)

...he will be unheard until humans honor the dead and forget the living..for then only upon his ' death '... ' he ' will rule their hearts...and his kingdom will have no ending... :) :) ;)
..TO HAVE GREAT POETS..THERE MUST BE GREAT AUDIENCES TOO... :)

..my idea of beauty.. ;)

...what is beauty??..something which appeals to the eye?..
..something beautiful and attractive??...so what all comes under the purview of beauty?..

..for me beauty has many faces..let me tell you what i think beauty is..

..beauty is between two lovers walking hand in hand with not a care in the world..
..beauty is when you see a person who has a true zest for living..
..beauty is when our mind n body move as one in the way we exactly want...
..beauty is when you see someone walk with life pouring out of every inch of the person's being..
..beauty is the expression on one's face after reading a lovely book..
..beauty is in the shining eyes of the grandparents living happily ever after...
..beauty is the sacrifices a mother makes for her son..
..beauty is the expression of a mother at the first sight of her new born...
..beauty is in a baby's first laughter...
..beauty is the battles a father battles for his family..
..beauty is the happiness of a soldier after a war gets over..
..beauty is the five rupee note that a beggar gets as alms..
..nature is beauty...the silent understanding between animals is beauty..
..the silence of the dawn is beauty...a water bubble floating lazily is beauty...
..art is beauty..music is beauty..for me..anything that expresses the inner being is beauty...
..i happened to watch 'children of heaven'..its a touching movie..now that is what i call beauty...
..it brought me to tears..the power to touch and move is beauty..
..beauty is expression and expression is beauty....beauty is the way one beholds...
..there is lot of beauty around to admire..it's presence is everywhere if we care to look.. :)
