Lord Ganesha with Prosperous Golden Aura

Today is Anantachaturdashi, the day of Visarjan of Lord Ganesha who has been showering the fervor and devotion upon all of us for the last ten days. On Ganesh Chaturthi, the first day of Ganesh Festival, I prayed to Lord Ganesha of Sarsabaug (Pune), to bless me with divine words to write poems. I hadn't planned it. But, the Kripa of Lord Ganesha is so great, I have been able to write a new prayer every day for the past ten days. Thank you Ganapati Bappa, my faith in you is strengthened by your powerful and prevailing blessings.

Poem: Engineering Days

Today's poem is dedicated to Engineering days for Engineer's Day celebrations. While penning down the memories, I felt, this poem has turned my thoughts more as an Engineer than as a poet. Reliving the lasting memories of Engineering and the Institution of Engineers Days. 

Engineering Days...

Circuits, designs, programs,
evening to next morning assignments

Poem: Exhausted Brain

The feeling before sleeping after a hectic day, 

leaning on comfy a pillow
exhausted brain smiled saying,
"Thank You"
