There are 4 sreedhavs on the planet Earth when i last counted! So you can consider me as one among an extremely "endangered species" or the supreme power must have decided that three's a crowd and four --unbearable!
The bare fact is i became an unwitting poet! In 1992, while returning from Goa,India after attending the "South Indian Diabetes Update meet", i suddenly felt a peculiar sensation in the middle of the chest and something made me pull out the laptop and out came Five "quartains" (a quartain is a poem with 4 lines)! Once ,i returned Home, it turned into a torrent and ultimately ended up with >> than 110 poems on UG Krishnamurti, a contemporary of the world-reknowned Jiddu Krishnamurthy (JK)
My grand--father was a sort of county sheriff who was well educated in the traditional Hindu scriptures and was held in high regard, even by the British officials! The top British officer ,called the Collector was virtually a ruler of roughly 7500 suare miles of area and the population within it. The Britisher had the right to shoot and no questions asked( they ruled over us for 200 long years)
My G-Father used to start his prayers to the divine lord"SHIVA" at 3AM in the morning and used to sip water alone until the prayers which he did not do as a ritual ,but with great devotion until 3PM in the afternoon! There were many such counties and the deputies under him used to take care of things until he came out of the the prayer room! The Collecter used to visit the county HQ, once in 6 months and used to "wait" patiently until the old man's contact with the divine was over!
He was a poet and the "poetic gene" re-surfaced in me! I will end by telling you that poetry is akin to a vomit and it has to come out! Writing poetry, i used to strongly feel that i was only a hand and wrist and somebody else was crafting the poems!
Hey, i never wrote such a long post, but just type DR.Sreedhav and you will see!
Thank you and regards,
