New Poetry 27- God’s Attempts To Protect Peace And Avoid War
I assumed the Avatar of Lord Krishna
and strived my best to bring lasting peace among the kinsmen
as War leads to loss of lives and cultures
to be followed by the worst and wily successors
of mixed virtues and cultures adulterated with vice.
My efforts did not bear fruit and perforce.
I had to ferment and foment the war.
When Arjuna’s heart melted when he foresaw
the loss of human lives and the bloodshed
of the genocidal kinsmen war of Kurukshetra,
I had to inspire him with unworldly ideals
of Swadharma, Paradhama and Immortal Atma
and preach the philosophy of necessary violence
for the extripation and elimination of evil or Adharma
and for establishment of the Rule of Dharma or Virtue,
but at a cost of much bloodshed and loss of lives
quite opposed to the basic principles of humanity
as life is most valuable according to earthly laws.
In the war, all the peace-built edifices of progress
are lost stunting chances of growth for a long time.
