Woman’s Hands

Name any work, chore, skill, art
 
where women’s hands are not seen.
 
Women’s hands work non-stop
 
round the clock everywhere.
 
Women’s hands are hermits
 
protectors and great healers.

Ahimsa

During 2011 many visitors were searching poems on non-violence or violence against women. My book Aaurat Shabad & Shakti presents many poems about women their virtues and their uniqueness. Poems reflect woman as a symbol of capacity, capability and calm when respected and loved.

.Non-Violence is the way of life, says Buddha:

Beyond Masks

..
 
Year 2011 made me wiser!
 
I discovered real faces
hidden under masks
The masked faces were
showing wrinkle free smile
sugar-coated words
pretending humbleness.
True self of a person
is tested only in crisis
the way it is handled.
Some brood and wait
evaluate the situation
reflect on the words
some lash out their
inner hidden garbage
and spread out filth.
The moment it happens
their faces become naked
their masks crack down and
people see them who they really are!
 
This is how friendship cracks down
this is how intimate people become enemies
Watch  for a mask of kindness!
Nothing is free, look for its price tag.
Sometimes we have to pay too much price
for someone’s tiny kindness.
Meanings underneath humbleness
could be a fire-ball underneath snow.
