A LOOK AT LIFE-42
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

The beauty of life 
he knows who lives it for others
the feel of charity he feels who
shares his food with another 
and remains hungry as such
the pleasure of giving he relishes
who gives without a condition
expecting nothing in reciprocation

The less you live for yourself
and more for others
the more you live for yourself
your little drops of love, affection
sacrifice and concern go a long way
and fetch you the ocean in return

You are not unhappy as such
you are not happy because you think
others are more happy and that
happiness of others is what disturbs you
makes you unhappy

Most of the life
you live thinking about others
their affluence and achievement
and others are always in your
focus and  agenda
you are so obsessed and preoccupied with others, hardly any time left
for your own development
you compare yourself with others and feel sad
and carry that sadness with you
and distribute it among others
and make them sad
you are more concerned with 
what you do not have and forget the fact that God has endowed you enough  to make you happy and contented
you are not happy as you are
you want to be somebody else

You can not be happy
unless you enjoy others happiness
and fee their pangs of sorrow
you will remain with an agitated mind
and a pair of jealous eyes
till the very end

You live the whole of our life
nurturing jealousy and hatred
which gives you nothing expect
lots of heart burning
pain and mental agony 
you are to think and reassess
for still some time is left
still you have it in you
to make a rich harvest and live
the rest of life with lots of common sense

Live life to the full
let love be your only language
and religion, the whole world your family
be with others in their moments
of happiness and sorrow
the whole world will be yours
you will have that satisfaction, peace
and tranquility of mind
till now eluding your grasp 
a yogi's dream
which a man committed to 
naked self interest
can hardly fathom

A LOOK AT LIFE-45
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Solely concerned 
we are with our own suvival
hardly think others who coexist
with us have life of their own 
the worst victims of our selfishness
and misadventure here

We lament
our own survival is at stake
existence in jeopardy
with global warming, environmental pollution and attitude of man putting a serious question mark as to whether there will be any life on earth

So obsessed we are with our own survival hardly pay any attention to
the environment that nourishes us
the culture that sustains life on earth

Man being the most clever and
assertive animal on earth has deprived
others of their due 
endowed by the Almighty and 
made a mockery of their life
how many of us accept the
truth that this beautiful earth is
as much ours as it is theirs

There is a limit to exploitation
 a limit to the theory of survival of
 the fittest, beyond a limit non will
 survive and the fittest will
 succumb to the ire of nature

Time to rethink and reorient ourself
time to internalise our cultue 
that stands for love and reciprocation
spirit of tolerance, compromise 
and peaceful coexistence

Let 'live and let live' be the motto
or else we only we will be
held responsible for the complete
annihilation of life on this beautiful earth

A LOOK AT LIFE-42
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

         MAKE LIFE BEAUTIFUL

The beauty of life,
he knows who lives it for others,
the feel of charity he feels who
shares his food with another 
and remains hungry as such,
the pleasure of giving he relishes
who gives without a condition
expecting nothing in reciprocation.

The less you live for yourself
and more for others,
the more you live for yourself.
Your little drops of love, affection,
sacrifice and concern go a long way
and fetch you the ocean in return.

You are not unhappy as such,
you are not happy because you think
others are happier and that
happiness of others is what disturbs you
makes you unhappy.

Most of the life
you live thinking about others,
their affluence and achievement,
and others are always in your
focus and agenda.
You are so obsessed and preoccupied with others, hardly any time left
for your own development.
You compare yourself with others and feel sad
and carry that sadness with you
and distribute it among others
and make them sad.
You are more concerned with 
what you do not have and forget the fact that God has endowed you enough  to make you happy and contented.
You are not happy as you are,
you want to be somebody else.

You can not be happy
unless you enjoy others happiness
and fee their pangs of sorrow,
you will remain with an agitated mind
and a pair of jealous eyes
till the very end

You live the whole of our life
nurturing jealousy and hatred
which gives you nothing except
lots of heart burning,
pain and mental agony.
you are to think and reassess,
still some time is left,
still, you have it in you
to make a rich harvest and live
the rest of life with lots of common sense.

Live life to the full.
Let love be your only language
and religion, the whole world your family,
be with others in their moments
of happiness and sorrow,
the whole world will be yours.
you will have that satisfaction, peace
and tranquillity of mind
till now eluding your grasp,
a yogi's dream
which a man committed to 
naked self-interest
can hardly fathom.

Smruti Ranjaniji,

Your poem titled"A Look At Life-45"is a timely poem advocating for an ecocentric view of the world rather than an anthropocentric view of the world.Today we still follow that old paradigm of development wherein all activities of us human beings are concentrated upon ensuring maximum comfort level for us human beings here on this earth even at the cost of the survival of the flora and the fauna in this world.We are so immersed in this game of claiming the ownership of this world that we don't mind that the fate of the world dangles at a precarious position with the ecology,environment,nature and atmoshere of it highly impaired and damaged,the natural elements of the world are highly contaminated and polluted and the earth appears to be a waste land which is to be put back on the rails.The effect of global warming is for all of us to see with the temperature level of the earth skyrocketing like never before,due to the rise in temperatures of the earth,natural calamities do come to the earth thick and fast in the forms of hurricanes,the rise of sea level,the submergence of island nations around the world and the huge and massive replacement of the people.The point we human beings need to remember and imbibe into ourselves at this juncture is that to have a deeper understanding of our position here on this earth that is that this planet is not our exclusive realm alone rather it is a planet on which all creatures of this earth do have a natural claim as we do,so we need to co-exist with all the creatures here on this earth,if not we shall be slowly eradicated from this world because without them and an ecosystem of balanced nature,we can't ensure our survival for long.So what we need to do is to preserve and conserve this earth and hand it over to posterity in the way we have got it from our ancestors.We also need to make sure the sustainability of Mother Earth and we must follow sustainable developmental patterns as well and most importantly let us follow the principles of "Live and Let Live and Give and Take",that is the only way we can surge ahead in our lives,so let us envisage for the ushering in of an egalitarian and eclectic society.Kudos to you for composing such a poem of exquisite and marvellous nature making a clarion call to reformulate our strategies in terms of the ways through which we have to live in this world.

A LOOK AT LIFE-45
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Solely concerned 
we are with our own suvival
hardly think others who coexist
with us have life of their own 
the worst victims of our selfishness
and misadventure here

We lament
our own survival is at stake
existence in jeopardy
with global warming, environmental pollution and attitude of man putting a serious question mark as to whether there will be any life on earth

So obsessed we are with our own survival hardly pay any attention to
the environment that nourishes us
the culture that sustains life on earth

Man being the most clever and
assertive animal on earth has deprived
others of their due 
endowed by the Almighty and 
made a mockery of their life
how many of us accept the
truth that this beautiful earth is
as much ours as it is theirs

There is a limit to exploitation
 a limit to the theory of survival of
 the fittest, beyond a limit non will
 survive and the fittest will
 succumb to the ire of nature

Time to rethink and reorient ourself
time to internalise our cultue 
that stands for love and reciprocation
spirit of tolerance, compromise 
and peaceful coexistence

Let 'live and let live' be the motto
or else we only we will be
held responsible for the complete
annihilation of life on this beautiful earth
