Article on JANMASHTAMI by Writer / Poet Rashmi Pitre.
Why should we celebrate Janmashtami today ?
Lord Krishna signifies ‘Ananda’ or bliss, pure happiness. So Janmashtami is the day when divine bliss became manifested. This divine joy was always present, but it is on this day that it became evident (in the form of Lord Krishna). Reflected in all things, Krishna is harmony. Krishna, the Lord of love, and the beloved of all, reveals the treasure stored in the heart of every living being. This hidden wealth is the ‘fulfillment’ gained through genuine love and peace of mind.
According to Bhagavata Purana, the Mother Earth prayed to the Creator Brahma to relieve her of the burden of miscreant kings.
Brahma then appealed to Vishnu to descend in order to defend the dharma, or the righteousness, harmonious living. Their prayers were answered when Lord Krishna was ‘born’.
In today’s world, we often face the battle between the ‘Good’ and the ‘Evil’ in our mind. Should we be honest in our business dealings or should we use unethical shortcuts, should we be loyal in our relationships, should we give in to immortal temptations or limit our desires, should we think positively or negatively, the list is endless.
In this Crisis, We need to give ‘birth’ to Krishna again. That is our self-consciousness and our power of soulful righteousness. With so much exposure to education and knowledge today, we are well-equipped to rekindle our dignified conscience to fight ‘evil’ so ‘good’ may prevail.
Let us give ‘birth’ to our inner ‘Krishna’, our inner goodness and our power of rational thinking and virtuous behaviour today and let’s celebrate Janmashtami for a brighter, healthier and peaceful present and future.

1. ‘A Beautiful Painting’
That all I had in my heart
Was all soft spoken by the art
It hurt me a bit as I looked at it
But it unfolded a picture I had truly never believed!
But I felt the warmth of her feelings
When my conscience hugged me a little
The blue face dipped in the universe of grief,
I thought would never come out of belief!
Abruptly it revealed to me,
Everything was fair when you thought it correct!
And the fire below,
Reached the sky…
That filled it with pure plums of hope!
Could you tell me…
“What the lady in the mirror had in real?”
A pessimist figure, An Optimist mind!

Quiet the sunrays
Sit on my shoulders,
My cheeks, my nose,
And on my eyelids..
Sitting on the rooftop when I feel them..
Silence flows down to my heart..
The golden rays turn into beautiful memories,
And I see the white clouds..
Each with a frame of my nerves that experienced it..
Quiet ears hear the sound of laughter that rolled sometime back..
The quietness grows with every bird swinging from one leaf to another..
And I quickly step down the ladder..
Hoping the silence to break.. !

3. In the Golden moments..
In the Golden Moments of Life..
My heart clings to the beauty around..
I can smell peace..
And it breezes into my skin..
With a blush and glow..
To the lustre that lies within.. !

4. Soul of the Forest
Walking in the woods
the Soul of the forest…
turning to the deep hues…
the river of running branches
the solitude of harsh particles of the silver dews of waterfalls
falling from a great height of maximum mountains…
the feet smile lovingly…
the new surfaces of the wet sun green leaves…
the babies of the birds require the familiarity of tune
carrying the pots of nectar on their heads
these females drank the jar of wet humidity and the scorching rays of dry…
tanned faces reveal the glory of twinkling dawn of the son of the grandfather
bewitching the proud blue hue heavens…
the skies sprinkle spices of rains on their daily bread..
amusing is their journey of unknown wishes and promises…
Let the Soul quicken the union of the one barked tree… !

6. The Early Showers…
The early showers of thunder and rains in the city…
shivering and romancing the trees with their branches abound…
the sky, foggy with pearls of transparent love,
the bubbles of laughter and chatter…
the mist of the smile…
the dozing off of gossip…
the warmth and affection of being there
healthy conversations with a touch of blueberry ice-cream…
the light-green arrowheads of shining persona…
we met only to say and hear and listen…
the early rains here again,
tell us this story anew… !
