THE worst floods in a century in the Indian state of Kerala have so far killed over 300 pneople and forced more than 200,000 into relief camps, officials say, with the toll expected to rise.

As the southwestern coastal state’s chief minister sought military reinforcements to boost rescue efforts, a disaster management official said that, since the monsoon season started about three months ago, more than 320 people had died due to flooding and landslides.
As the waters have risen, many people have found it increasingly hard to access food and other basic amenities, or to reach safety.

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 49

This week’s challenge: Your piece can be your piece – poem, story, anecdote, memory, quotation or anything else – whatever ghosts or monsters or gods it invokes inside you.

What is it that lives inside our bodies, and drives our actions? Is it a god, a monster or a ghost?

Challenge 49-Ghosts

Are we all part of superconsciousness which allows us to differentiate between right or wrong?

Why our actions show the opposite?

Why some people go out of the way, leave their comfortable life and serve downtrodden going to live with them most inhumane life?

Why some people do the henious, gruesome crimes in spite of knowing the punishment they will get?

Does every person is fifty-fifty percent, side by side, the demon and an angel and the one who is nurtured most empowers us?

Long sessions 

of meditations 

satsang( company of pious people seeking truth) 

introspection made believe that

all my inner conflicts have vanished

I have learned to control my anger, and peace and calmness dawned on me

I accepted  that

God has given us so many ups and downs in life to make us tough

I realized  that

All religions teach same virtues of love, compassion, kindness, harmony, and compatibility 

Only some intolerant of follower spread hate and disturbance for their personal gain and power.

I understood completely that anger and greed are the biggest enemies 

and empathy and forgiveness are our biggest friend and liberate us.

But…when I read about rapists, terrorists, and people who commit heinous crimes, through acid on others, oppress weak and poor 

all thoughts of forgiveness evaporate 

I wish I could make them stand in a line and shoot them 

some people don’t deserve to live

It’s a great post. I feel inadequate to comment on this. Decide for yourself.

I came across an interesting article on ghosts today, as if on cue from the universe. I have done a slightly different version of an Erasure poem. The prose constitutes of excerpts taken from the source article, without disturbing the order of words or meaning. The poetry (in italics) has been added be me to lend perspective .

It is a prose and poetry sandwich.

DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES

Jikisai Minami had thought about death since he was young, wondering how such a thing could possibly exist in the world, and obsessed by the idea that though he hadn’t ‘started’ himself, he nevertheless had to live with himself. He discovered the dead as what he calls ‘a very real presence’. ‘They really exist,’ he tells me, as we speak inside one of the temple buildings. ‘Just as powerfully as this table – sometimes even more so. It’s completely different from them existing…
