“Tug of war”

Made us win, made us lose

Made us all fall

Made us giggle

Made us guffaw;


Now too “Tug of war”

Daily, unlimited

No choices offered

No accolades, no wins

Just play or perish…


“Tug of war”

Between ‘wrong or right’

‘Duty and delight’

‘Escape and fight’…


“Tug of war”


‘Morning tea and Maths bee’

‘Push-ups and pull-ons’

‘Nail polish and shoe polish’.


“Tug of war”


Mid-days stir and wash machine whir

‘CID’ and ‘Shoorveer’

‘Chicken tikka’ and ‘Kadhai paneer’.


“Tug of war”

Played whole life

With lot of strife

Tired of the duel,

The ‘self’ contorts now

For the ‘bliss’ ultimate

And the supreme divine. 

We are always pushed and pulled between different factors and events all throughout our lives…well, should we then exit? Where do we go…are you sure you’ll get a better life anywhere else? If you are thinking that for your good karmas you’ll go to heaven or for bad karmas you’ll have to suffer at Hell…Sorry, you do not have to go anywhere, you have to repeatedly come back to this world to live the fruits of your Karmas…The algorithm is set.

Understanding this and little more, when you surrender to the Almighty all your actions, then probably by staying here also you enjoy your life, contribute to the society and yet remain connected to your origin forever.

This “Tug of war” of life at times becomes so tough that suddenly we look up and we see the light…..
