Morning Stories

Then the sun has risen,
For his redness,
That his photo
Do not be pulled.

In the auspicious time of dawn,
flowers are full of dew.
Their inside stories,
Somewhere anonymous between them.

On the open terrace,
In an open environment.
Except for laziness and comfort,
The mind is calm, awake.

Morning stories,
Are beginning to be made.
With a tailor-made needle
Is weaving its story.

On the street corner,
A gathering of elders has started.
Discussing tea,
Talking about the future of the country.

It’s morning
With temple bells.
It’s morning
With God Bhajan(devotional songs).

It’s morning
People are awake
With half of the closed eyes half open,
I am also awake.

This beautiful photo of the morning, my friend Muskan has clicked. I come to know that both Muskan and her brother take photographs. She has many other abstract photographs, and each photo is beautiful, with a meaning hidden in it. Thank you Muskan.🤗

Every morning is a new song, a new story. These stories justify human life on earth. Chhotu(5-10year old boy) is beaten up when bad milk comes and Deorani -Jethani(two female relatives) starts discussing Sonam’s wedding in the neighbourhood… and starts making flaws in the groom.

  1. Excellent, evocative picture of life in an Indian home and the city. So vivid that I can hear Temple’s bells, see the morning sunrise, and the sounds of household waking up. I love the picture you have painted, Loku, with your masterful storytelling. Except for the boy being beaten- why the cruelty?
    Thank you.

    1. The boy is not beaten.

      In India, people love tea, so they sent a boy, say 7 years old, to get the milk. If the milk is not good or fresh then the mother scold the boy with love to return the milk or change it. This is just a way to react, to talk…the boy is not beaten. Elders always to try to teach us the lesson instead of beating.

      Some people set up a deal with the milkman to get the fresh milk of a cow.

  2. There is something wrong with your Hindi post. It doesn’t take any like or comment. मैं यह कहना चाहता था कि हिंदी बहुत अच्छी है। अपनी मातृभाषा में जितनी अच्छी तरह भावना व्यक्त कर सकते हैं, वह किसी अन्य भाषा में नहीं। मौलिक लेखन हिंदी में अच्छा है। अनुवाद के लिए गूगल बाबा हैं ना। चिंता किस बात की।

    1. मैं हिंदी में और लिखने के लिए उत्साहित हुँ kk जी । Due to some reasons have saved the post private for some time therefore, it does not have more reaction. I’ll public it soon. Thank you for your concern. You are very much appreciated.😊✊
