RAJ NANDY

SEEKING HAPPINESS !

Every one seeks happiness and some acquire the same.

I am no exception, in this hide and seek game.

Some say happiness is got to be in one's fate and destiny.

I wonder if that's the truth, or is it just to console me.

Radha found her happiness by finding Krishna after a long wait.

Perhaps I too shall happiness, if I am destined by fate.

Happiness is like a fragile butterfly, if you chase it with a net,

It shall elude and escape you, when you begin to blame your fate!

Perhaps one should in calmness sit and meditate,

For this butterfly to alight upon you, making it worth the wait.

 

But our materialistic World sees happiness only in money and wealth.

Yet none mention that for a septuagenarian, 'Health is true Wealth'.

I have begun to realise at this ripe age of seventy three,

When Good Health has become synonymous with Happiness

for me!
