MISSION HIGHLY IMPOSSIBLE IS MADE POSSIBLY EASY

THROUGH GLOBAL PEACE SCIENCE

(Brief view o­n Universal Book Global Peace Science of GHA 2016)

By Ashok T Chakravarthy

 

Life o­n Earth is a confluence of multiculturalism; - closely knitted and attached with faiths of several religions and cultures. And, Global Peace Science (GPS) is o­ne such marvelous key that can unlock human conscience and minds not o­nly to prevent wars, terrorism but also resolve environmental crisis and economic instability. GPS definitely offers something unique to motivate and pave a way for transformation of human approach and shall be an eye-opener not o­nly for this, but also for the generations to come.It can silently shatter the self-destructive tendencies embedded in human minds and can fulfill the universal need to project and protect, to acquaint and inject prophesies of universal love and love towards every living being.

"Global Peace Science is an epic-like subject which throws open permanent opportunities for the revival of peace, development of undeveloped-underdeveloped nations, educating children and youth to uphold social harmony and ultimately strives to create an environment viable for world peace, best suited for peaceful co-existence. If tolerance is the key factor of the peace-coin, trust is the absolute key for human relationship and it certainly is the other side of the same coin.To rid humanity from wars, terrorism and poverty, GPS is certainly a non-violent victory of peace over war during XXI century.Its undoubtedly a world class text book to be prescribed for every school, every college and every university across the world.

The ever increasing concern and the scare of a possible world war are pushing the world towards distrust amongst humans as a whole. The way anarchy, hatred, genocide, conflicts and violent activities have been increasing day-by-day, it is but common for every living being to feel insecure even midst a militaristic society. A secured human life, freedom from destructive apprehensions and protection of universal human rights is the primary cause of concern imparted through Global Peace Science to explore the bitter truth of what the superior-complex nations vie for.

With such awe-inspiring and charioteer-like person Dr. Leo Semashko, President of GHA in association with like-minded and dedicated Members of the Association joined hands for creation of harmonious civilization based o­n Tetrasociology; can a second-thought against peace intrude us?Therefrom emerged the confluence of 174 co-authors from 34 counties o­n the magnanimous and wondrous task of accomplishing the holy relic-like Global Peace Science / Peaceloveology, Peacescience to appease and soothe humankind. We have to tread this path and pave a way to others to tread this path laid with the delicate petals of global harmonic human civilization. With total faith and consciousness let this Great Good Gift of the century Global Peace Science enlightens every nation, every religion, every culture and every tradition to bring us together into o­ne global family.

Dear Ashok,

Many thanks for your excellent peace-harmony-Mothers poem, which was published o­n your personal page here: http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=286

I am happy congratulate all o­n behalf of the GHA with this great Peace-Harmony-Mothers Day. Mothers, women represent and embody Peace-Harmony-Life from nature via their natural deep intuition.

But superficial military men and their nations-states represent and embody for people and nature the war-disharmony-death, which can be overcome o­nly by global Spherons' Harmony in every nation-states through Global Peace Science. Could you write Poem about this philosophical matter of our days: "To be or not to be"?Thank you.
Cordially,
Best wishes for peace from harmony of SPHERONS,

Loperas and Chakravarthys Poems: How to make harmony of strong, able to put end to our slavery? "Glory Harmony! Learners you're coming for you!"


Dear Jose,


Thank you very much for your strong poem HIGH FINANCE, dedicated to the highest financiers as the triumph of disharmony in financial (=militaristic) slavery of our world.

I was happy to publish it o­n your personal page here: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=442. (I invite the famous Russian poet Adolf Shvedchikov translate it into Russian).

My o­nly regret about it sad and hopeless end: the slaves of financiers praise them, not knowing the end! In the 21st century, we have scientific knowledge of social harmony in its ABC, which reveals to us the way out of our financial slavery in harmonious civilization through harmonious education and harmonious spheral classes. We are required o­nly an unprecedented effort in the development of this knowledge and its dissemination through the global harmonious education and enlightenment of all people with children, so they know their involvement in the global harmonious classes rather than a doomed involvement to slaves of financial barons. Then humanity can exclaim: Glory Harmony, knowing you're coming for you! We are not ignorant slaves of financiers!


GHA is going this path consciously 8 years and encourages everyone to follow him! I invite you and other poets of the GHA, write poems not o­nly about our slavery and financial dictatorship, and the power of harmony and triumph of the harmonious mind, illuminating a new world order of harmonious classes beyond dictators and oligarchs, Caesars and the accompanying them wars, violence, hunger and slavery. It will be a triumph of Harmony, to which global humanity will come in the 21st century! Please write about this dream that come true when we believe in it and when we talk about it and do not be silent.


I was happy also to publish another brilliant poem, another poet of the GHA, India, Tholana Chakravarthy dedicated to the Mothers Day, "The Compassion Incarnate" o­n his personal page: www.peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=286. Maternal compassion - this is o­ne of the most beautiful feeling and a natural source of harmony. But it is not enough and too powerless, as history shows, before financial slavery and any violence. This harmony source also find its power and strength in scientific knowledge of social harmony and its main actors - spheral classes of the population, which are presented in the GHA ABC of Harmony and that will be studied in detail in an upcoming case study GHA in the coming year. o­nly this knowledge can give mankind the full and true freedom from financial, militaristic and other slavery and to ensure social harmony as the highest embodiment of freedom and justice! It will be a true victory of humanity. It will be a victory over the total ignorance in harmony, generating fascism, war, financial slavery and other disharmony in the world. o­nly the knowledge of harmony will make this world a better place!

Therefore:

Glory Harmony! Studying you're coming for you! Ave, Harmonia, studendo te vade! (If I made a mistake in the Latin translation - correct me, please).

Best wishes o­n Victory Day as triumph of harmony over fascism! For it will follow triumph of a harmonious civilization as victory over the financial slavery, war and militarization!

GHA President

The Indian Culture of harmony and its expression

in Poetry, Literature and Art of India

 

The long history and culture of India emerged from its unique geographical location and its ancient heritage dates way back 5000 years to the Indus Valley Civilization and considered most diverse nation in the world. The rare delights are found in the centuries-old temples, tombs and forts; in the exquisite crafts still made in the traditional way. Religion and ritual pervade almost every aspect of life in India. Four major world religions - Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism have originated o­n the Indian soil and they have greatly influenced not o­nly India but also South East Asia and other parts of the world too. Though each sect has its own rules, rituals and taboos, ordinary Indians largely follow a live and let live philosophy.It is this underlying spirit of tolerance that has enabled India to remain a unique tapestry of varied cultures and faiths. Acquiring Independence o­n 15 August 1947, India became a Republic o­n 26 January 1950.Despite some political upheavals, slowly and steadily India grew from strength to stability in all spheres of development to be presently reckoned as o­ne of the fastest progressing nations in the world.

 

The culture of India is a confluence of several religions, traditions, races, regions and castes which are harmoniously fastened with the worlds largest democratic nation.Indian culture is closely knitted with the melodious fabric of various cultures and traditions.The culture of India has its shades of influence by Persian, Arabic, Turkish and English cultures. A rare blend of architectural splendors, a recipe of distinctive multi-cultural entertainment and a hub of hi-tech amusement, India reflects a universal society.A living example to unity in diversity, every state of the Indian nation is governed o­n its own with its own language and customs to follow. The lively and lovely cosmopolitan culture is a feast to watch and as thought-provoking as it is explored.Possessing different customs, traditions and varied cultures, India is divided into twenty-eight States with six Union Territories (UTs) with New Delhi as its national capital. Indian democracy stands for universal o­neness and reflects the harmonious co-existence of different sections of people as a whole, irrespective of their caste, creed, race and religion.To mention a few of Indias great grand divine temples, Kedarnath, Kalkaji, Lotus Temple, Birlamandir, Meenakshi Temple, Badrinath, Pushkar, Tirumala Tirupati, Golden Temple, Kanyakumari, Dwarkadheesh, Konark Sun Temple, Dilwara Jain Temple, Kasi Viswanatha, Mathura, Kanchipuram, Shiridi, Kali Maata,Vaishnodevi, Rameswaram, Madurai, Chamundeswari, Mookambika, Guruvayur, Ananta Padmanabha Swamy, Sabarimala and the architectural splendors of the Vijayanagara empire and the erotic sculptures of Khajuraho, The Buddhist murals of Ajanta; the inlaid carvings of flowers and animals in Mughal and Rajput palaces; the breathtaking architecture of the Taj Mahal, India Gate, Jantar Mantar, Qutub Minar, Charminar, Fatehpur Sikri, Golkonda Fort etc., have a unique history and glory of their own among numerous other landmarks.The culture of peaceful co-existence reflects in the historic Indian democracy.Economic freedom, providing voting right to ordinary people gives its citizens a great sense of participation in building the nation.Its a blend of exceptional culture where realities shower delights of simple living and high thinking.Modern India has been fuelled by its vibrant, secular democracy, the largest in the world and, in recent years, also by new economic opportunities.

 

Indian Literature ::

 

The roots of Indian literature in English have its origin at the end of the 18th century and they got firmly rooted by the beginning of the 19th century.Education and literary expression in English have been decisively established by a social reformist from the Bengal State in India, by Ram Mohan Roy (1774-1833).His relentless efforts for including India amongst the world nations yielded desired results and paved way for educating the Indian pupils through English medium. This pillar of foundation gave the much needed boost for mass communication amongst the people of various regions within the country as well as to the entire world enabling mutual exchange of high cultural values and heritage.

 

Indias languages are diverse with as many as 17 major regional languages and hundreds of dialects.The English language is among the lasting legacies of British rule in India. It is spoken by pan-Indian elite, widely used as a link language.During Indias freedom struggle, English language became a peaceful instrument in the hands of Mahatma Gandhiji, Father of the Nation, in revolting against the British Empire. Several political leaders throughout India, viz., Jawaharlal Nehru, Lala Lajpath Rai, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, T. Prakasham, Kasturi Ranga Iyengar etc. emerged as literary legends.The most famous Indian literary figure was Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941), a Bengali writer, whose book Gitanjali won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913.

 

The other earliest examples of Indian literature written in English which have academic acceptance were that of the novel titled, Rajmohan's Wife, by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee and the poems of young poetess Toru Dutt.However, Sarojini Naidu (1879-1949) was a distinguished poetess of literary merit hailing from Andhra Pradesh State in India, whose romantically weaved poetry charmed readers not o­nly in India but across the European nations too. And Aurobindo Ghosh (1872-1950), poet philosopher and sage is no exception, whose epic, Savitri and Life Divine is an outstanding example of English literature.Gradually English became the authoritative legislative and judicial language, as well as the official language in India for all practical purposes. Indian Poetry has always been dazzling and still dazzles with ever-new glitters and ever-pleasing poetic expressions, viz.

 

Sarojini Naidu in her Poem

PALANQUIN BEARERS

 

Lightly, O lightly, we bear her along,

She sways like a flower in the wind of our song;

She skims like a bird o­n the foam of a stream,

She floats like a laugh from the lips of a dream.

Gaily, O gaily we glide and we sing,

We bear her along like a pearl o­n a string.

 

 

Ravindranath Tagore in his poem

WHERE THE MIND IS WITHOUT FEAR.

 

Where the mind is without fear the head is held high

Where knowledge is free;

Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;

Where words come out from the depth of truth;

 

Toru Dutt in her Poem SITA

 

Gigantic flowers o­n creepers that embrace

Tall trees; there, in a quiet lucid lake

The white swans glide; there, whirring from the brake,

The peacock springs; there, herds of wild deer race;

There, patches gleam with yellow waving grain;

There, blue smoke from strange altars rises light.

There dwells in peace, the poet-anchorite.

 

Govind Krishna Chettur in his Poem NOCTURNE

 

Dear God, what beauteous paths are Thine!

Now, all our being made divine,

Resurgent flows back unto Thee

Borne o­n this flood of ecstasy,

Knowing in moments such as these

Fulfillment of our destinies.

 

A poet with a quest to promote UNIVERSAL PEACE, a couple of stanzas from the poetry volume, SERENE THOUGHTS of Dr. T. Ashok Chakravarthy, Litt.D, Hyderabad [A.P] INDIA :

 

We got moved by droughts and famines

Yes, got shocked by wars and destructions,

We stood mute by the deaths of starvation

Being humans, lets sow seeds of concern.

A change in attitude is the need of the hour

O human! Time is ripe to amend our manner.

 

Human, O human

Besieging the human instinct

With unceasing greed

Often you become blind

Whenever ..

You invade others weakness

You ignore others sufferings

You snatch others rights

You betray others faith.

Dear Members of Peace from harmony group

 

On the eve of the International Day of Non-violence and in commemoration of the 138th birth anniversary of Sri Mahatma Gandhi, the Spirit of India The Father of the Nation - I furnish hereunder a brief text o­n Mahatma Gandhi and a Peace poem o­n the occasion, as under :

 

Mahatma Gandhi, an exceptional personality, familiar for his association with non-violence, a person who emphasized the need for unit among different religions, languages and classes of society was an unchallenged torch-bearer of universal peace. He was like a cloud of bliss when the people were thirsting for a shower of peace and that lustrous line of light had pierced through the dark spell of racism, violence, hatred and dominance. Mohandas K. Gandhi, conceived an all-time new weapon called, Satyagraha, which literally means a non-violent & non-cooperative movement, through which he drew unparallel public support and worldwide attention and was evenly instrumental in igniting the non-violent and peaceful imagination of the general public. Refining the technique of Satyagraha, Gandhi trained and influenced his vast followers and thereby succeeded in laying a solid foundation to strengthen the moral character of the firm believers. Whether male or female, rich or poor, literates or illiterates, young or old, weak or strong; Gandhis philosophy drew mass universal attention.

 

Unlike other leaders, Gandhi did not believe in armed conflicts to drive away the anti-people rulers. o­n several occasions, he used fasting and non-cooperative movement as a means to achieve the goals, in order to purify himself and to calm the aggrieved hearts. He undertook the mammoth task of educating the-then 300 million Indians to stand o­n their own feet. He utilized the medium of his own newspapers to express opinions o­n political matters and he went o­n to become an unprecedented, uncontested, sole representative of the people. Virtually it was a o­ne-man show of Gandhi, whom no o­ne dared to challenge. By successfully employing Gandhis system of non-violence to achieve extraordinary success in their own political struggles, world leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. of the United States and Nelson Mandela of South Africa have successfully accomplished their political tasks.

 

Despite Mahatma Gandhis assassination nearly six decades ago, there still exists every possibility to bring back the spirit of non-violence to achieve some definite objectives that would pave a way for universal brotherhood and peace.

 

While remembering the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, it is but the endeavor of every Indian to extend the hand of friendship o­n this special day of 2nd October. Keeping aloof from violence and ruthless attitude and in turn promoting peace and exceptionally high level of moral character amongst humans, let this pledge be fulfilled for universal welfare and prosperity.

Tholana Ashok Chakravarthy

ABC for Children of Harmonious Civilization

A Cause of concern

 

To survive in this merciless world

He wanders, begging o­n the streets;

Either a source to rely at least

To feel the cozy childhood glitters,

Or a mercy-filled parental heart

To be blessed with fondling memories.

 

Sleeping in wrapped-up newspapers

Even in adverse weather conditions,

He literally lives o­n the filthy streets

With torn-out rags, deep sunk eyes

Spending lifes traumatic moments

Under the merciless human hearts

Which fail to ignite any humane spirit?

 

Midst the rubbish heaps, at times

At times under the motorway bridge

Hes a society deserted street child

Abused and left as an accursed o­ne.

Oh God! His immature life is tragic

Premature he may end up perhaps,

Alas, whos there to focus o­n his plight?

Whos there to balm his wounded heart?

 

To put in motion a never-ending fight

For the protection of childrens rights,

Who would but become the leading light

To give priority to the heart-jerking plights.

Let such thoughts of social consciousness

Sprout in the soil of every human heart

In the busy world, midst our busy schedule,

Cannot we spare a few of our moments

To implant and impart a cause of concern

For protection and priority for children.

 

 

Tholana Ashok Chakravarthy

ABC for Children of Harmonious Civilization

Shattered visions of childhood

 

Their dull, dusty and dismal faces

Their desolate and pitiable glances

Their deep-sunk lustreless eyes

Their desperate and gasping cries,

Alas ! At the fag-end of survival path

Afraid, they stare at the jaws of death.

 

Their shattered childhood visions

Their heart-breaking compulsions

Their soul-stirring dismal conditions

Their cries of the agonizing starvation,

Alas ! They fail to stir human hearts;

Though, every moment a child departs.

 

Yesterday was similar, today too even

Wheres the concern for a co-human?

Children are they, stung by starvation

Lifeless are they, almost like skeletons

Alas ! Grasped by the tentacles of hunger

Their tearful eyes gape, seeking succour?

 

Pierced by the thorns of human neglect

The discontent of desertion clearly reflects,

Is there no end to the inhumane aspect?

Or, cant we spare time to unfold the facts?

Alas ! Children are they, starving are they

A fist of food would save them for a day,

Pray God, starvation deaths are kept at bay.

IF THE .

If the blissful flags of peace
Are tagged to the cries of war,
If the friendly pigeons of peace
Are freed in the war-torn skies,
If the peace-loving forces
Are flown into the war terrains,
If the provocative elements
Are disciplined to uphold peace,
If the promoters of suppression
Are cured by the potion of love,
If the innocent victims of war
Are treated with humane concern,
If the conspirators of conflicts
Are persuaded to desist from wars,
Will there be any crisis or any scope
For enmity to exist amongst humans?
Wont there be enough space for hope
To expect, a hope-enhanced tomorrow;
To adorn the Global Harmony Day
In a harmonious civilization, everyday.

Humans Are Me

 

Humans are we

We have but .

Different facets

Different views,

Different expressions,

Different attitudes,

Different cultures,

Different religions,

Different customs.

As a whole,

We are but humanity.

 

Humans are we

We have but .

Different principles,

Different characteristics,

Different aims,

Different ranks,

Different beliefs,

Different costumes.

As a whole

We are but humanity.

 

Humans are we

With decisive knowledge

To know what is what

What is good?

What is bad?

What is just?

What is unjust?

What is humane?

What is inhumane?

What is love?

What is hatred?

What is constructive?

What is destructive?

What is life?

What is death?

Yes, as a whole

We are more intelligent

Than all other living beings.

 

But, with selfish motives

With selfish views,

With selfish requisites,

With selfish attitudes,

We become aggressive

Instead of supportive.

Ego-bloated .

We create hatred

We create conflicts

We support the affluent

We support the powerful

We ignore the starving lot

We ignore our co-humans.

 

In the alarming situation

Cant we keep aloof

From the selfish, I and mine

And give a new lease of life

To the depleting human values To rest assured in PEACE.

CAN WE JUSTIFY OURSELVES

 

While a windstorm

Rages in heart of hearts,

And drowning memories

Ravage my aspirations,

Helpless I stand

In a desert, isolated.

The storm of agony

Uproot my dreams

And crash-lands my aspirations

In the mire of dejection

As if I am an accursed orphan

 

The delicate childhood

Is ruthlessly crushed

By inhumane attitude;

While day to-day life

Merely remain a mirage.

In search of kind adoring hearts

To quench not o­nly hunger

But the thirst of love too

Sleepless at night, I day-dream.

 

We witnessed aggressions

We came across conflicts

We viewed what brutality is

We faced the brunt of wars.

Yet, we speak of love and peace,

Talk of civilized approach,

Boast of being humane,

Above all, we act too smart

With the Universal Peace slogan.

 

Oh human ! How come?

When we intently ignore

To give minimum priority

To orphans and street children

Yes, How come?

How can we justify ourselves

With mere words, devoid of action.

Dear Tholana, I am not a poet, but your poem CAN WE JUSTIFY OURSELVES touches me deeply, regarding the plight of all of the children of the earth, but more urgently, those in nations whose leaders consider it to be appropriate to threaten their neighbors with the ultimate devastation, that which is almost incomprehensibly cruel, death by radiation sickness, which touches all who are in proximity to nuclear detonations planned, in theory, to teach their enemies "a lesson." The o­nly thing it teaches children is fear, fear of their own leaders. What child is made to feel more secure by knowing that other children will die horrible deaths because o­nes own protectors are able to justify civilian casualties in the millions? An Internet brings this reality home, inescapably present in the minds of children throughout the world, no longer an adult realization, o­nly.

 

In Iran, in Korea, in Israel, the silent killer is fear, not of enemies, but of the intransigence of those who say they are committed to the lives of their people, but their true commitment is to the suffocation of their so-called enemies, by whatever means are available, including a threat of nuclear annihilation. Children are dying in Iran for opposing the insanity of leaders, including clerics, who insist o­n developing the nuclear option. Children are starving to death in the northern half of Korea, for the insistence of their leaders to use dwindling resources to develop the nuclear option. Children in Israel are dying spiritual deaths for the insistence of their leaders to exact, not just "an eye for an eye," but body counts many times over. What Jewish child can take comfort in such retaliations without losing part of their own humanity?

 

It is not adults who will decide the future of humankind. Youth are beginning to shape their own destiny. Children are o­n the march. They will bring their leaders to accounts. It began in Gdansk, Poland, twenty years ago, in a movement called Solidarity. Youth will no longer accept, in quiet acquiescence, the fate handed to them by cynical politicians and spiritless clerics. They are finding their Voice in reply to Fallen Leaders who were not afraid to speak out against the indignities forced o­n them when they dared to challenge irrational actions of their governments. We are not the models for these youth to follow, for we were o­nce able to challenge the duplicities of our governments, and may have tried, but ultimately failed.

 

Now it's their turn. We can help, but we can't lead. It is no longer our fight. Justice, equality and harmony cannot be won o­n battlefields or by using threats and intimidation, but through compassion for those who are weaker than ourselves, recognizing our common humanity, working together to discover and attain shared goals. "Have I not lost my enemy in making him my friend?' attributed to Abraham Lincoln, when criticized for being kind to those who opposed him. We can encourage young people to do what we failed to do: "make" Peace.

 

Respectfully, Martha Ross DeWitt, PhD, Sociologist and Political Analyst.

Poems for June 1 - Protection and Children Priority Day - o­n the Harmonious Era Calendar of Global Harmony Association

 

OATH o­n HUMANITY

 

The love-craving looks of those rendered orphans

The shattering cries of children seeking protection

For a fist of food, for a ray of love the wait goes o­n

Every moment of their budding life is but uncertain.

 

Caught in the barbed cage of the terrifying fate

O innocent children, wheres the way to sneak out?

Your misty eyes, speak of the sufferings untold

But whos there to unshackle the inhuman hold?

 

We boast of civilization, call it our global stature

But who cares who, is an agitate question to ponder,

Were the days of the uncivilized past a bit better?

Than the present hi-tech boast, selfish in nature.

 

Who is there to spare time or listen to your call?

Oh pitiable o­nes, whos there to protect you all?

Day in and day out you are battered, unmerciful

A humiliating curse that may prove dear to us all.

 

Lives entangled in the webs of starvation and death

Almost at the fag-end, who can avert their last breath?

Now at least, a ray of mercy should strike our hearts?

Humans are we, is not mercy at a corner of our heart.

 

How painful if a budding flower is plucked forcibly

Likewise are the lives of children abused physically,

We should ensure, by taking a oath o­n humanity

To safeguard children from injustice and brutality.

----------------------------------------------------------

A RAGPICKERS PLIGHT

 

To survive in this merciless world

He wanders, begging o­n the streets;

Neither a source to rely at least

To feel the cosy childhood glitters,

Nor a mercy-filled parental heart

To be blessed with fondling memories.

Sleeping in wrapped-up newspapers

Even in adverse weather conditions

He literally lives o­n the filthy streets

With torn-out rags, deep sunk eyes

Spending lifes traumatic moments

Under the eagle-eyed street lights

Which fail to awaken humane spirit.

 

Midst the rubbish heaps, at times

At times under the motorway bridge

Hes a society deserted street child

Abused and left as an accursed o­ne.

Oh God! His immature life is tragic

Premature he may end up perhaps,

Alas, whos there to focus o­n his plight

Whos there to balm his wounded heart?

 

To put in motion a never-ending fight

For the protection of childrens rights,

Who would but become the leading light

Giving priority to the heart-jerking plights.

Let such thoughts of social consciousness

Sprout in the soil of every human heart

In the busy world, in our busy schedule,

Cannot we spare a few of our moments

To implant and impart a cause of concern

For protection and priority for children.

JURAMENTO DE HUMANIDAD

(Oath o­n Humanity - Wonderful Poem byTholana Ashok Chakravarthy-

Translation in Spanish-by S.Roberts)

Las suplicantesmiradas devueltas deaquellos huérfanos

los gritos quebrados de niños que buscanprotección

Porun puñado de alimento, por un rayo de amor ellos esperan ir

Cada momento de sus vidases demasiado incierto.

Atrapados en una jaula de púas de un destino aterrador

Oh niños inocentes, dónde esta elcaminopara salir?

Sus ojos húmedos, habla desufrimientos indecibles,

pero quién está allí para desencadenar el asimiento inhumano?

Nos jactamos de civilización, es llamada nuestra estatura global,

pero quién se preocupa de quién, es unapregunta agitada para meditar

Eran los días del pasado incivilizado un poco mejor?

Que la jactanciosa hola-tecnología presente, egoísta en naturaleza.

¿Quién está allí al rato libre o para escuchar su llamado?

¿Ah lastimosos, quiénes están allí para protegerlos?

El día y en el día haciausted es aporreado, despiadado

Unahumillantemaldición que puede probarqueridos a todos?

¿Vidas enredadas en los webs de hambre y muerte

Casi en la faena-final,puede apartar su último aliento?

¿Ahora al menos, un rayo de piedad debería golpear nuestros corazones?

Humanos somos, no espiedad en el rincón de nuestro corazón.

 

Tan doloroso si una flor en ciernes es arrancada enérgicamente

De la misma manera son las vidas de niños abusados físicamente,

Nosotros deberíamos asegurar,tomando " un juramento de humanidad

Para salvaguardar a los niños de la injusticia y la brutalidad.

How's the below poem, exclusively composed for the MOTHER'S DAY o­n 11th May, 2008:
========================================================================
THERE CANNOT BE

There cannot be such a place
Safe enough than a mothers lap,
There cannot be a love of such a sort
Than that of a mothers loving heart,
There cannot be that much excuse
Than that of a mothers pleasing nature,
There cannot be that much solace
Than that of a mothers soothing words,
There cannot be such a caring glance
Than that of a mothers assuring eyes,
There cannot be such a gentle touch
Than that of a mothers caring hands,
There cannot be so deep a concern
Than that of a mothers untiring alertness,
There cannot be more such contentment
Than that of a mothers serene smile,
There cannot be a more grieving heart
Than that of a mothers hurtful feelings,
There cannot be such a peace boundless
Than that of a mothers fondling look,
There can never be such mercy unbound
Exception to God, than that of a MOTHER.

A RAY OF HOPE

 

Deep down the memory lane

Childhood, when peeps out,

I recollect bone-thin orphans

Staring into the empty skies.

What a misfortune, what a shame

Really a blot o­n human civilization.

Is the aspect of love and concern

From out of ego-bloated hearts

Got evaporated o­nce and for all

Into the deep layers of selfishness.

 

Ignoring the deprived children,

Leaving some to their own fate,

Forcing some to starve and die;

What contentment is derived?

In ignoring their dismal plight.

The pitiable, orphaned children

Despite scared to live without love

Yearn to somehow survive

For death looks ferocious to them.

The lusterless deep sunk eyes,

Speak volumes of agonizing abuse,

The heart-breaking ignorant stance,

Reveal the pounded childish hearts,

Betwixt shores of survival and death

Imagine the torture and torment

That kills them almost every moment.

 

O Lord ! Shower a bit of your mercy

To fill the dark lives with a ray of hope.

-------------------------------------------------

 

Μια ΑΚΤΙΝΑ ΕΛΠΙΔΑΣ

Βαθεία μέσα στα μύχια της μνήμης των παιδικών χρόνων,

όταν κρυφοκοιττάζω,

αναπολώ τα λεπτο-κόκκαλα ορφανά

να κοιτάζουν μέσ΄ τους άδειους ουρανούς.



Τι ατυχία, τι ντροπή

Πράγματι μιά μελανή κηλίδα στον ανθρώπινο πολιτισμό.


Είναι άποψη αγάπης και ενδιαφέροντος

απο τις εγωκεντρικές καρδιές
που εξανεμίζονται μια για πάντα
στα βάθη του εγωισμού.

 

Αδιαφορώνταςγια τα στερημένα παιδιά,
Εγκαταλείποντάς τα στη μοίρα τους,
Υποχρεώνοντας τα στην λιμοκτονία και το θάνατο,

Ποιά είναι η ικανοποίηση απ΄αυτά;

Αδιαφορώντας για την μελαγχολική τους δοκιμασία.

Τα αξιοθρήνητα, ορφανά παιδιά,

πέραν του φόβου να ζούν δίχως αγάπη

επιζητούν κάποιον τρόπο να επιζήσουν.....

 

Ο θάνατος τους φαίνεται άγριος.
Τα βαθυσκότεινα μάτια τους,
μαρτυρούν αμέτρητες βασανιστικές κακοποιήσεις,
Η σπαραξικάρδια αδαής στάση,

αποκαλύπτει τις σφυροκοπημένες παιδικές καρδιές,
στις ακτές επιβίωσης και θανάτου του Μπετβίξτ

φανταστείτε τα βασανιστήρια και τα μαρτύρια

που τα θανατώνουν κάθε στιγμή.
Ω Θεέ! Χάρισε λίγο απο το έλεός Σου
να γεμίσεις τις σκοτεινές ζωές με μια ακτίνα ελπίδας.

THE RIPE TIME

 

Wherever harmony is nourished

Peace in abundance has flourished,

Irrespective of caste, religion or race

Pigeons of peace lovingly adorn the skies.

 

Every dawn looks a peaceful marvel

Every place resembles a delightful dazzle;

The pleasing nature and beautiful birds

Enthrall our hearts with ever-new bonds.

 

Neither an iota of hatred nor any grudge

The iota of enmity, with harmony merge,

Clouds of distrust disappear out of sight

Assuring peace and upholding human rights.

 

The hours of distrust become trust-worthy

New dawns usher, with pleasures-worthy,

With hand in hand, time is ripe to sow

The most sought-after seeds of peace, now.

 

Plowing the very soil of harmonious living

Individual mind, if made fertile and loving

The catastrophic clouds of impending wars

Forever can be defaced of the war-torn scars.

Harmoniously

WHERE THERE IS PEACE

 

Where there is amity, there is delight

Where there is harmony, there is light,

From the dark phase, we have to budge ahead

Leaving the conflict phase, we have to go ahead

 

The pigeons of peace should we release

The necessity of peace should we realize,

Life is short, deny a scope to conflicts

Eternal is love, offer a place for TRUST.

 

Where there is amity, there is delight

Where there is harmony, there is light

 

Citizens, universal citizens are we all

We should uphold human ethics and morals,

Be a leading light to those groping in the dark

May the deprived lives enjoy peace sparks.

 

Where there is amity, there is delight

Where there is harmony, there is light

 

Ashamed, the clouds of war should disperse

Mankind be freed from the conflicts curse,

Where there is amity, there is delight

Where there is harmony, there is light.

Dear Peace Promoter/s

 

PEACE IS OUR RIGHT UNITY IS OUR MIGHT

 

As a promoter of the concept of UNIVERSAL PEACE & BROTHERHOOD THROUGH POETRY, I feel it a blessing to come across people / organizations such as yours. You are the leading-light of PEACE without any frontiers, and I am o­ne among the pigeons of peace amongst you.

 

A Poet and Review Writer, I have been persistently making my efforts for a PEACE UNIVERSALITY by way of spreading the message of PEACE THROUGH POETRY. In this quest and in view of the forthcoming UN International Day Of Peace o­n 21st September, I furnish hereunder THREE of my recently composed PEACE poems meant for that particular day, occasion and purpose.

 

As pigeons of peace or say emissaries of peace, we all belong to o­ne family; with a sole aim and objective for UNIVERSAL PEACE.

 

LET PEACE PREVAIL o­n THIS UNIVERSE

LET THE UNIVERSE SING A PEACE VERSE

 

Your precious comments / views o­n the peace poems are MOST WELCOME.

 

Anticipating your whole-hearted COOPERATION in

spreading the message of PEACE.

======================================================

 

STRENGTH IN UNITY

 

The haunting nightmares and sequences

That the ruinous wars often result in,

Challenge us with dire consequences

To ignore or support co-human insults.

 

The deep pain and the haunting sorrow

That emerges from the ensuing conflicts,

Challenge humankind with a tomorrow

Wherein, an ocean of miseries reflects.

 

By upholding and fortifying peace

We should challenge the arch-rivals,

By demonstrating the might of peace

We should prove the power of our will.

 

The challenges of frequent conflicts

We should conquer with weapons of peace,

The challenges of revenge and rifts

We can raze with harmony and peace.

 

The hostile and ruthless calls for war

With our insightful wit, should we shun;

Transforming thoughts into peace-showers

To fortify a spirited unity that wins.

 

Violence should not provide us a scope

To counter it with identical response,

Consequences should not deter the hopes

To desist us from establishing peace.

-------------------------------------------------

 

THE SEEDS OF PEACE

 

O Peace! Before you we humbly bow

Harmonious seeds we aspire to sow,

On mankind you have steadfast trust

Is it but possible to keep that intact?

 

The dominating and conflicting trends

Ominously are they threatening mankind,

They are but the hurdles o­n peace paths

Whoever dares to tread, confronts death.

 

The scars of fear, death and destruction

Taught us to desist from any provocation,

Unmindful yet, we prefer to be provocative,

The egoistic fire is alluringly destructive.

 

When humans suffer the pangs of death,

Children forced to face starvation deaths,

Mothers are snatched of their dear o­nes,

Whom should we blame? Please imagine.

 

O Peace! Before you we humbly bow

Harmonious seeds we aspire to sow,

But if aggression ploughs with violence

Show us, how to sow the seeds of peace?

------------------------------------------------

 

A SPACE FOR HOPE

 

If the blissful flags of peace

Are tagged to the cries of war,

If the pigeons of peace

Are freed in the war-torn skies,

If the peace-loving forces

Are flown into the war terrains,

If the provocative elements

Are disciplined to uphold peace,

If the promoters of suppression

Are cured by the potion of love,

If the innocent victims of war

Are treated with love and concern,

If the conspirators of conflicts

Are persuaded to desist from wars,

Will there be a crisis or a scope

For enmity to exist amongst humans?

Wont there be a space for hope

To expect a hope-enhanced tomorrow.

 

From the dark shackles of egoism

Peace would liberate the humankind,

Who can deny the bliss of peace

Once pleasure is derived out of it?

What we seek is public domination

What we lack is true dedication,

If both are effectively curtailed

Peace victorious shall we herald;

It conquers and occupies the world

Laying flowery paths in every heart

Forget not, this option is the best.

THOLANA Ashok Chakravarthy

 

IS THERE THE SPIRIT.

 

The seeds of mistrust, into hatred sprout

And pave way for several global conflicts,

The priceless peace-struggles and sacrifices

Adorned with the spirit of patriotic fires,

Seem to slowly erase from human memory

Making us vulnerable, o­nce again to slavery.

Is there the true spirit of humanity now?

 

On the paths to mislead the humane light

We humans are vying to show our might,

The poor and the weak are made scapegoats

Like playful pawns their lives at bay are kept;

Tears and turmoils always hunt their lives

But who shows concern or hear their pleas.

Is there the true spirit of humanity now?

 

The shackles of past slavery and sufferings

Raise their hoods to ignite the traumatic stirrings;

While the dominating trend of ego and riches

Relentlessly pound to create human breaches,

Will the morals of humanity get lost forever...?

This alarming question keeps pricking with fear.

Is there the spirit of true humanity now?

 

With best wishes to o­ne and all

 

Harmoniously

Dear Members

 

Warm wishes to John McConnell, the Earth Day Founder and his all out efforts seeking Global Attention for the Equinox

Earth Day.I pray and wish, John McConnell's global effort to foster peace, justice andEarth Care will usher in a

new beginning for the human adventure... and we all are bound to share the magnanimous effort.I feel the below poem

suits the EARTH DAY :

 

COME OUT

 

When the nature beautiful

Unfolds the dawn delightful

Spell-bound, our eyes blissful

Absorb the dawn mirthful.

 

In the pleasant atmosphere

Leaving all pains and fears

Thoughts fly high and afar

Away from lifes routine chore.

 

Held in a self-imposed exile

Suffering un-necessary travails,

For sure, any life is of no avail

Unless o­ne breaks such shackles.

 

A call for peace, a cry for peace

An appeal for harmonious bliss;

That shows a love-embraced face

Either projecting a religion or race.

 

Let us learn harmonious lesson

Nature imparts without hesitation,

The element of love and affection

Will change this worlds direction.

 

Dwell not in an exile thats deviating

Love for world creatures is most exciting,

Come out of the garb of selfishness

Know, in love dwells true humaneness.

 

Harmoniously

Gateway to Friendship and non-violence

 

My statement for Harmonious Era Calendar

 

In this present phase of conflicts between the peoples, as a co-author of the Harmonious Era Calendar, it is the best choice to opt for 2nd of October as the universal date for the GATEWAY TO FRIENDSHIP AND NON-VIOLENCE; so that the people of India and Pakistan in particular and rest of the world in general would make intimate moves to get acquainted with the concept of LOVE AND AMITY.Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, popularly known as Mahatma Gandhi was a symbol of PEACE and simplicity, philosopher of non-violence, who played an influential role in imparting and implanting UNIVERSAL PEACE through non-violence. Following his footsteps, with a broad-minded gesture of goodwill and inspiration, people should come forward to choose PEACE as the ultimate weapon that can eliminate conflicts and succeed in molding the war-torn paths with love and compassion. Why not the adamant attitude and the feelings of aggression get erased from the deep caverns of human mind and transmit humane concern in every heart?Ultimately, let the concept of Friendship and Non-violence break the shackles of the enslaved and deprived lot and douse the universe with love and peace, so that the warmth of friendship and joy reflect in every heart and every thought of mankind.Hope, this poem imparts the urge for peace, where dwells within, the light of eternal delight:

 

BOND OF LOVE

 

Place, let us place

Place the flowers of Peace

On the sacred soil

Of our holy Mother Earth.

Thirsting for peace

Let us take an oath together

To heal the bleeding wounds

Caused by mistrust and conflicts.

 

Lo ! Why not? Yes, why not?

Why not we aspire to remove,

Remove the barriers of caste,

Remove the barriers of hate,

Remove the barriers of creed,

Remove the barriers of greed,

Remove the barriers of religion,

Remove the barriers of rebellion,

Remove the barriers of disputes,

Remove the barriers of disparities,

And weave the bond of LOVE;

The ultimate objective of which

Is to reach the gateway of peace

Where exists, love and amity.

I D E N T I T I E S

 

Promise me a pitcher of water

I shall quench the thirst of needy.

Promise me a bowl of food

I shall feed the starving orphans.

Promise me a roll of cloth

I shall wrap the poorest of poor.

Promise me a place of shelter

I shall provide shelter to the homeless.

But ..

Do not promise identities ofhatred

cause we find them any where.

Do not promise identities ofconflicts

cause we are scared of their ferocity.

Do not promise identities ofdestruction

cause we have experienced their rage.

But, Lo responsible citizens of the universe

Let us pledge for Love and Peace

Which forever gives a lasting solution;

Where the flags of trust and peace

Stand as IDENTITIES of human affection.

-----------------------------------------------------


WE ARE HERE

 

Bravo! O peace keeping forces

Bravo! O peace loving warriors,

Your daredevil fighting spirit,

Your gushing patriotic instinct;

Yes, oh sons of great mother earth

You aim to give humanity a breath

Laying peace paths, secure and safe

Sharing human concern and grief.

 

Showing solidarity in times of need

Staking lives without an iota of greed

For universal peace, you readily vie

For universal cause, you live and die.

Warriors of your caliber if not born

What would be the fate of the human?

Hunting and crushing enemys domain

Who can guard us, wiping rival demons?

 

Very soon, brimming with joys

Rivers shall flow with ripples of joy,

Brimming with joy, nature would glow

The breeze of peace, soon shall follow.

Unless we understand and act together

Peace motives cannot be attained forever.

Bravo! Lo peace keeping forces

Bravo! Lo peace loving warriors,

Mankind, forever salutes your martyrdom

Safe are we now, cause of your patriotism.

------------------------------------------------


DISCOVER WISDOM

 

Seek the light of God

To share the identity of love

Seek the light of love

To share the identity of faith

Seek the light of faith

To share the identity of peace

Seek the light of Peace

To share the identity of passion

Seek the path of passion

To discover the identity of salvation.

 

Identify the human instinct within

To awaken without any hindrance,

Weed-out the obstacles of wisdom

A glow supreme springs in the heart.

The doors of wisdom shall unlock,

Where, peace-filled thoughts flock.

 

Between the shores of life and death

Let the amorous spirit stay eternal;

Beware, douse it not for selfish ends

To lose the sparkle of wisdom, forever.

 

Yes, explore to identity the God merciful

A shaft of light shall enlighten your soul.

----------------------------------------------


GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

 

The fires of death and hatred, dance

Re-emerging with surging vengeance

For some, death is a form of martyrdom

Self-imposed for faking a religious idiom.

 

The smeared inner-self should change

The tendency of fanaticism should change

Given a chance, Peace forever shall stay

The world can view a sea change anyway.

 

With the backing of the emissaries of trust

The seeds of love shall hasten to sprout.

The petals of faith shall clap with glee

Peace and prosperity, every nation shall see.

 

The root-cause of evil, hatred and starvation

The hassles of growth, hate and aggression,

When both are resisted by self-motivation

Planet earth becomes an abode of heaven.

 

Instead of destruction, we witness growth

Instead of hatred, we get love and warmth.

The clouds of passion shall shower trust

The winds of change shall blow any mistrust.

 

Even if the fires of death and hatred, dance

Yes, lets opt to give Peace another chance.

------------------------------------------------


SEEKING LOVE

 

It seems, the looming death shadows

Unmindful of the pathetic plight

Still haunt the bone-sucked lives

Challenging the unity of human might.

 

The doors of mercy in our hearts

Even now, if fail to shower mercy

And if still we immerse in own delights

Mankind, forever should feel guilty.

 

Into their pity-filled eyes, stare please

Seeking love and your warm embrace

Their despair, yes, would totally erase

If we express our solidarity and grace.

 

We cannot even imagine the plight

Falling upon our near and dear o­nes

If ignoring in dire need is simply right

No doubt, we are simply inhumane.

---------------------------

 

Dear Tholana,

 

Thanks for your support of the Global Harmony Day and your five remarkable poems. I could publish them o­n our site o­n the page " 4-4-1. Indian poetry for harmonious peace" but o­nly autumn, so I am very much engaged the coming month, and then I leave approximately for two months. But I would like to include your email in the list of our dispatch, that you were familiar with events o­n our site. I also very much liked to read your opinion about our Harmony Calendar and Address to youth o­n our dialogic page. We would be happy to cooperate with you for the sake of peace, harmony and priority of children.

 

Best harmony wishes for your and children,

 

Leo
