HOW CAN THIS WORLD BE MADE A HEAVEN?

This is so vast, rare and unique a world;
Gifted with rich mines of platinum, diamond and gold
Replete with lakes, springs, rivers, seas and oceans
Teemed with beautiful plants, creatures and mountains
Bestowed with miraculous science, technology and brains
Endowed with magical bikes, cars, buses, trains and planes!

Amenities are abundantly available at finger tips
Space is conquered by spacecrafts; water by ships.
Comfort, luxury and pleasure are accumulated in heaps
Tickets are booked before months for long distance trips
Diseases are disabled by novel, Nobel Researches
The world beyond is fetched in a jiffy by Net searches!

Yet, all the aforesaid are only for the privileged men
What does it matter to the poor, deprived children?
Do the deserts gain, if in the water bodies, it rains?
What do they gain if the Poles are cooled with fans?

Today, million stomachs are yet to be adequately fed
Today, million shelters are yet to be inevitably made
Today, million minds are yet to be indispensably taught
Today, million bitter battles are yet to be bravely fought
Today, million forests are yet to be imperatively planted
Today, million wants are yet to be benevolently granted
Today, million wounds are yet to be successfully healed
Today, million perpetrators are yet to be nabbed and stilled
Today, million men are yet to be saved from being cruelly killed
Today, million corruption cases are yet to be effaced and nilled
Today, million harmful ozone holes are yet to be urgently mended
Today, million culprits are yet to be duly punished and reprimanded
Today, million anti-humans are yet to be boldly, immediately jailed
Today, million innocent captives are yet to be released and bailed
Today, million pending, teasing issues are yet to be sensibly settled
Today, million puzzles are yet to be correctly solved and fizzled
Today, million dark clouds are yet to be removed and unloomed
Today, million smiles are yet to be blossomed and bloomed
Today, million under nourished engines are yet to be driven
Then only can this world be made for all a blissful a Heaven.

N.B: DEAR FRIENDS, I WANT THIS POEM TO REACH ALL THE GOVERNMENT HEADS IN THE WORLD FOR THE REALIZATION OF MY DREAM OF PENNING THIS POEM. IT WILL BE KIND OF THOSE WHO CAN DO THEIR BEST IN THIS REGARD, OTHERWISE ONLY OUR WRITING AND READING IN THE FACEBOOK, OR ANY OTHER PLATFORMS WILL NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEMS IN ANY WAY. THANK U ALL IN ADVANCE ANTICIPATING YOUR SUPPORTING HANDS FOR THIS NOBLE MISSION.

When his garden smiles and rejoices in the breeze.

When the Full Moon scintillates the hills, planes and seas.

Ask Duty-Deity what curiosity is,
When He is embraced with love, devotion and praise.
Ask Life what curiosity is,
When It attains sweet Salvation, Its Ultimate Wage.

BE, AT LEAST, A DECENT HUMAN BEING
 
All the milk that you churn
Yields not the same cream;
The world is not so
What it does seem.
All the flowers that bloom
Yield not the same honey;
Deeds maketh immortal
A few hours, but, money.
All the coconuts you squeeze
Yield not the same oil;
Sorrows swarm sins
Yea’ instills peace toil.
All the water that drops
Succeeds not to be drinkable;
Be not then an obscene page
If you can’t be a treatise readable.
All the smiles that dance
Retain not a sweet sense;
If you are jejune to exude glory
Don’t accumulate then offense.
All the rivers that flow
Enjoy not the Ganga’s honour;
Fall not into a crevasse
If you are really unable to soar.
All those who guide
Can’t be an epithet;
If you can’t mould not one’s career
Then, think not to mar one’s fate.
All that emits smoke
Can’t be hygienic odour;
If you can’t be an impartial Yudhisthir
Be not then an ugly, cunning fixer.
All those who pray
Crave not for liberation;
Oh! God is not confined
In a contentious installation.
All those who tread
Can’t lead the rest;
If you can’t be a healing balm
Be not then a pestering pest.
All the trees, like the Banyan
Don’t retain, to support, hangers;
If you are impecunious to applaud
Then, condemn not your benefactors.
All the woods that you rub
Ooze not the sandal scent;
Kick not at one’s hungry stomach
If, you are unable to, a pittance, donate.
All that you do days and nights pile
Will you carry alone;
If you can’t be a holy, useful sage
Be not then a filthy felon.
All those who make cities
Can’t make civilized citizens;
If you can’t heal one’s wounds
Then, inflict upon none pains.
All can’t be Gandhi, Subhash
Those who are, every moment, born;
If you are daft to be a delicate flower
Be not then a piercing, painful thorn.
All the plants you do foster
Can’t be succulent like sugarcane;
If you can’t utter soothing words
Don’t shower then acid rains.
All the seeds that you sow
Be not the wish granting Kalpavrikshas can;
If you can’t be Lord Ram’s devotee, Hanuman
Be then, at least, a decent being called human.

  1. Curiosity..and a question are the most important…..waves….needed for the human existence….. A zest for life….
    At every moment…..we are curious to know about something…..
    We become impatient…till it is satisfied…
    Sometimes…..this curious waiting last for hours and eben months and years !??
    Curiosity for the future moment….is inevitable
    The poet has done his best by giving countless examples…From
    Mother s Beloved teacher student and many more……!!!!!
    Thank you dearpoet for you and your…..ever flowing pen!??

  2. In the poem the poet is very much coerned about humanity…..Be a human….
    May not be……a kalpavriksha….which gives gifts who. Makes a request….

    May not be a hanuman. a great divotee….. Who served Rama..selflessly…..
    Bit at least be with your human normal good qualities.,….. to maintain a harmonious life for you and the society…..
    Your examples ate very apt….
    to make the poem. beautiful Shankar…
