Celebrating the real Dusshera / VijayaDashamii

‘Celebrating Dusshera is celebrating the victory of GOOD over evil devil!’
‘So when would we control and kill those invisible multifaceted / multi-headed RAAVANA(s) inside of us?
And the AVATAAR is also inside us, let’s make that AVATAAR expressed and in work!
When will we have the real VIJAYA-DASHAMII – victory of GOOD over Evil Devil?’


So by this time, all the RAAM-LIILAA and RAABANA-PODI would have been big time over!

I recall, with the sound of pathakas, crackers, rockets, the big tall RAAVANA would be arrow-targeted perfectly purportedly from RAAM‘s bow – it was all fun, good-will gesture, the festivity!

Celebrating Dusshera is celebrating the victory of GOOD over evil devil!

But I feel how lucky even Lord RAAM and others were! The so-called devil Braahmana-Raakshas RAAVANA was ten-headed! So if one went off, the other could be targeted and so on until the last / main one was done with, and RAAVANA was killed! At least those heads were getting visible one by one or so!

But the (human) devils today have so many invisible, disguising and deceiving faces! They come in form of close relations, friends, or any body in the society or crowd! And enjoy their act of DEVILRY!

But the KALYUG (modern-age) devils (the majority humans) must realize even the so-called Raakshas / devil RAAVANA was doing some good to / for his kindgdom Lanka, his place, his people! It was Swarna Lanka! And at least he also had some principles, followed tapasyaa to appease the Gods and get Vardaan! He was wise, learned; even he believed in the KARMA, but couldn’t help his own nature! Every devil had its end though, so was his. And the downfall is written through a misdeed. The misdeed and contention of RAAVANA was with respect to devii SITAA! And there was Lord RAAM to return the KARMA and mark the DESTINY!

With so many far dangerous than RAAVANAs these days, how many so called AVATAARs we would need and depend on! These modern-days RAAVANAs don’t even spare their own places / land / people! This modern-RAAVANA‘s desires don’t end with a naarii (woman) or prosperity, wealth! It wants any thing and everything! The wealth is misunderstood and has a new name – MONEY though! Lust and desires have new forms apart from women, rather to say more than any married women! Wine / Alcohol is not the only Vilaasa (aristocracy); it’s more than that – drugs, and/or any addiction! It’s just never-ending! Knowledge and wisdom are scarce!

The reality is the devil is within us! Some control it (SANYAM / self-control) and many enjoy relishing and expressing it and making it in work! As it goes, it’s their very nature!

“So when would we control and kill those invisible multifaceted / multi-headed RAAVANA(s) inside of us?

And the AVATAAR is also inside us, let’s make that AVATAAR expressed and in work!”

When will we have the real VIJAYA-DASHAMIIvictory of GOOD over Evil Devil?

A Food for Thought for each of us!



Yes, CM! Yes, PM! Yes, All!

Yes, CM! Yes, PM! Yes, Congress! Yes, BJP! Yes, CPM! Yes, All! Yes, etc! Yes, et al!
I am the ridiculously Independent ‘Common Poor Man‘ !

I am the compulsory, yet partly optional!
I am the subject, I am the specialisation!
Yes, I am the PCM!
But only in the votes, ranks
as marks just for the Qualification!
I am Prem, I am Chatur!
Yes, I am the Prevalent Common Man!
I am the generalisation, yet not the realisation!
I am the suggestion, not the implementation!
I am the news, but only the Journalists’ slogan!
I am the motion, but never the action!
In the Constitution, but outside the (Planning) Commission!
I am in the Institution, but never in the Consideration!
I am in the Law, but never in the Know!
I am the Integration, I am the Unity,
But if I show fully, to them I look dirty!
I am the Majority, yet the Minority!
I am the Mass, but treated as the Trash!
I am the Voice, but never a compulsory Choice!
I am the Point, but not as long as the Opponent!
I am in the election,
but as Permutation and Combination!
I am significant only in the counting
of votes in the election,
But left out to be mere two-digit number
when it comes to monetary calculation
Or so to say to attach a valuation
towards a BPL qualification!
I am always in the scene,
but later edited, cut, deleted
when it comes to be the released Film,
so much so that I am made so irrelevant
as if I am so misfit and obscene!
I am the resource, I am the growth,
I am the treasure, I am the wealth,
but made out to be the burden of subsidy
and fiscal deficit in the budget
to hide their misfire and misadventure,
and the inability, the opaque governance,
to conceal and prolong their illicit honeymoon
with dishonesty and corruption,
Thereby giving us the unwanted child
In the form of high inflation!
I am the food, I am the nutrition,
But in the godown, made out to rot
If I don’t fit in their plan and ambition!
I am in the act, but not in the participation!

Hey, watch out, all you Political Corrupt Men!

I am the Pressed Compressed Man!
Yes, I am the Poor Common Man!
