Man Beyond Nothingness

A particle afloat in the ocean of infinity,
Yet, so conscious of self in profuse vanity –
Lofty though his thoughts may be, they’re all profanity.
Man is nothing, made of nothing, that’s his identity.

Emptiness craves for sensation beyond sanity,
Like a black hole eating anything in its vicinity,
Such is the tale of empty, chaotic, gravity;
Man is nothing, made of nothing, that’s his identity.

Lost in a world of baneful, belligerent brevity,
Filled with protests of ignoramus sincerity,
Tossed between lines lacking any clarity,
He lives, dies, and is buried in utter poverty.

The Son of God came down from His celestial city,
He left Heaven and donned the garb of humanity.
He lived, loved, and served in all simplicity,
Then died by the hands of those professing religiosity.
But, He arose the third day, breaking death’s jaws of fatality,
Alas, the shame of those who die in their hostility,
For the Son of Man is ascended to the Throne of Supremity –
And all knees will bow before the Name of His Majesty,
Before the One who is given all authority,
Because He stooped down, emptied self and defeated vanity –
God girded His loins to serve sinful humanity!
What is man but a finite speck of futility,
Driven o’er surges, surrounded by fests of calamity;
Unless the Son of God had loved us, we wouldn’t have any identity!

“For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” (Romans 8: 29)

United, We Stand T

Sachin blasts; the crowd applauds.
A gold for shooting; we’re proud.
A.R.Rahman makes us bask.
India grows; so do Indians.

All these things are happening
Cutting across barriers
Of regions and religions,
With caste and creed buried.

Which has made it possible?
The Republic of India
And we as its citizens:
The identity connecting.

India must be there; guard it.
India must progress; serve it.
Be Indian and buy Indian.
Stand for and by Indians.

Divided by jealousy,
Exploited by betrayal,
India yielded to invasions.
The history must not repeat.

Identity as Indian must stand
Before any kind of identity.
Be there concern for fellow Indians.
Divided we fall; united we stand.

Janganmana binds us
As our National Anthem.
Let us sing it with the same spirit
With which our grandparents sang.

Exploring Happiness #23- Identity

Cocoon-like
I am an entity
complete and secure,
but what is my identity
I cannot be sure
unless I am compared.
To a tree I am small.
To a snail I am tall.
To water I am solid.
To a rock, I am fluid
with motion.
I am
and yet what am I,
unless I am compared?


We are not one identity, but rather many. We are husbands or wives, sons or daughters, parents, grandparents, professional people, individuals, friends.
One person assumes many different roles in his lifetime. This is really a source of strength. If one of our identities fails us through accident or loss, we still have all the other facets of our nature to give us wholeness.
Our excellence is not determined by one part of our nature, but rather by the sum of all of our diverse selves.

The worth of a person, or thing or an idea, is in being,
not in doing, not in having.
Alice Mary Hilton

I want, by understanding myself to understand others.
I want to be all that I am capable of becoming.
Kathryn Mansfield

Primordial Identity

Primordial Identity

* Soubhagyabanta Maharana

Everyone around me
Is a strange passer-by here
To know the reality of my identity
Which has duped my innocence
With an irresistible spirit
Of surging profanity.

Years have gone by
Bidding adieu to transitory moments
And momentary events
On the sands of fleeing times
Ignoring my subtle requests
To crave for a valid individuality.

In the vicissitudes of fortune
I have come across people
Talking big before me
Belittling their image before me
Praising high of me in pretense
Speaking ill of others deliberately
To synchronize their feelings.

I know not
Who is more primitive
In attitude and etiquette
Than my innocuous self?
Everybody thinks himself
To be an icon here
Amid pretence and hypocrisy
To hide the primordial identity
That pains me very much
Looking deepening darkness around me.
