Offering

Updated: Apr 1, 2022


The one string of Ektara

the Baul plays in reverence,

with his index finger in place:

the strain of his devotion

reaching miles and hence,

losing oneself in His name.

The seeker of truth

as he calls himself,

to dwell in His love,

union with the eternal Beloved.


The lanes he set his feet on,

the woods he traversed,

lives he touched with

his music and laughter.

His declarations of life

won many a hearts;

his enchanting folklore,

the soul-stirring songs,

piqued by occurrences,

are all but offerings to his Lord.

Another beautiful piece. This one about love, devotion, and spirituality. To lose yourself in the pursuit of something greater, to see yourself as a conduit to a higher plane of existence—that is what such a devotion represents. It helps drown our sorrows and sufferings in its divine servitude. Lucky are those who achieve it. Always such depth in your writing, never devoid of meaning and reflection. Keep bringing such marvelous pieces, Nandini.
