om jñānināmapi cetāṁsi devī bhagavatī hi sā

dāridryaduḥkhabhayahāriṇi kā tvadanyā

Maha KaaLi- Come to Me

1:58 PM

Original Sketch work..

Snap taken with negative effect..

Sketch edited in Fotoflexer..

A Poem

Maha KaLi,
Sweetest mother of this Universe!
Where are you?
Where have you gone?
Your Gampu is calling out to you-
"Momma, Momma, Come to me";
Why are you not coming mother?
For a billion life cycles now,
I have been searching for you,
yet I have not succeeded;
I cannot see you,
I'm unable to hear you;
Where have you hidden yourself mother?
Don't you know, Gampu needs you?
Dont you realize, some day you have to come?
Mother, you cant hide from me for too long!
My love will make you to come;
My longing will force you to come;
Mother, my tears will drag you to me;
You cannot resist me anymore,
soon, you will have to come;
Till you come, I'll be waiting for you;
Even if this wait is for another million life-cycles;
Gampu will keep calling out to you-
"Maha KaLi, Maha KaLi, Come to me"


Gampu :)

ॐ सरागिलोकदुर्लभं विरागिलोकपूजितं
सुरासुरैर्नमस्कृतं जरापमृत्युनाशकम् .
गिरा गुरुं श्रिया हरिं जयन्ति यत्पदार्चकाः
नमामि तं गणाधिपं कृपापयः पयोनिधिम् ..

गिरीन्द्रजामुखाम्बुज प्रमोददान भास्करं
करीन्द्रवक्त्रमानताघसङ्घवारणोद्यतम् .
सरीसृपेश बद्धकुक्षिमाश्रयामि सन्ततं

शुकादिमौनिवन्दितं गकारवाच्यमक्षरं
प्रकाममिष्टदायिनं सकामनम्रपङ्क्तये .
चकासतं चतुर्भुजैः विकासिपद्मपूजितं
प्रकाशितात्मतत्वकं नमाम्यहं गणाधिपम् ..

नराधिपत्वदायकं स्वरादिलोकनायकं
ज्वरादिरोगवारकं निराकृतासुरव्रजम् .
कराम्बुजोल्लसत्सृणिं विकारशून्यमानसैः
हृदासदाविभावितं मुदा नमामि विघ्नपम् ..

श्रमापनोदनक्षमं समाहितान्तरात्मनां
सुमादिभिः सदार्चितं क्षमानिधिं गणाधिपम् .
रमाधवादिपूजितं यमान्तकात्मसम्भवं
शमादिषड्गुणप्रदं नमामि तं विभूतये ..

Sweet Memories :)

5:13 PM
These snaps are of Pithoragarh. A beautiful small town in Uttaranchal state. I spent my whole childhood there. At that time it was an unknown,untouched place of Uttar Pradesh. People weren't aware of this beautiful town. But now it's a tourist place...

I didn't visit Pithoragarh after my dad's transfer. But the sweet memories of the town are still with me...And ofcourse a precious collection of snaps...

Way to Chandak (a beautiful morning) :)


The yellow building at the valley(left) was my school...Isn't it a beautiful place?


A snap we took in Chandak...At the right side, it's Magnesite Factory.


Nop,it's not fog...these are clouds :)


What a beautiful winter morning was that...It snowed everyday for more than a week...And this snap was of the outside of our back door...Wow, I miss my childhood...

My first drawing : Krishna my love :)

4:00 PM

Unbreakable, O Lord,
Is the love
That binds me to You:
Like a diamond,
It breaks the hammer that strikes it.

My heart goes into You
As the polish goes into the gold.
As the lotus lives in its water,
I live in You.

Like the bird
That gazes all night
At the passing moon,
I have lost myself dwelling in You.

O my Beloved - Return.
