Don’t know what completes me
Can’t say what repletes me
Never cared to know what depletes me
Can’t let happen what obsoletes me

The classical subcutaneous rebel
Comes but fails yet again to compel
O’ yes, that subliminally orthodox spell
What help in biding time to yell?  
Thanks again to all its surface swell

Time and the cruel ordeal of separation!
Relapse and the cool order of anticipation!

Don’t know whether it was,
A spontaneous segregation?
Can’t say if it was,
Pro to natural amalgamation?
Never thought of such a retrospection!
Won’t go again for,
What created that deviation?

So many parallel lines of ambiguous identity
Yet prevails the only fulcrum of innocent probity

Can’t say what repletes me
Never cared to know what depletes me
Can’t let happen what obsoletes me

Yet, at times, in Soulful moments
The thought surfaces, runs to meet me
Holding the identity, to complete me 
Caring enough to caress, to protect me

For the call that spiritual flow and cultural tradition of Banaras is - the mystical enigma, a city of paradoxes and a city of salvation – the questions that it answers – the questions that it asks – Banaras fascinates by its carefree lifestyle yet being the seat of eternal spiritual heritage – Banaras confuses by its lyrical spirituality yet practical reality of being a city of ancient wisdom in transition to assimilate the changes the time calls for – a transition that looks lost somewhere.
