ಆಟ ಪರದಾಟ

June 23, 2019

ಆಟ ಪರದಾಟ
ರಚನೆ: ರಾಮಕೃಷ್ಣ ಬೆಳ್ಳೂರು

ಅಫ್ಘಾನಿಸ್ತಾನದಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಕಂದಹಾರ
ಗಾಂಧಾರಿಯ ತವರೂರಾದ ಗಾಂಧಾರ
ಅವಳ ವಂಶ ನಿರ್ವಂಶ ಮಾಡಿಸಿದ್ದಕ್ಕೆ
ಗಾಂಧಾರಿ ಇತ್ತಳು ಕೃಷ್ಣನಿಗೆ ಶಾಪ
ಇದರಿಂದ ಪರಮಾತ್ಮ ನಕ್ಕನೆ ಹೊರತು
ಆಗಲಿಲ್ಲ ಅವನಿಗೆ ಕೋಪ

ನಿನ್ನೆಯ ಪಂದ್ಯದ ನಂತರ ಕುಳಿತರು
ಅಫ್ಘಾನಿಸ್ತಾನದವರು ಬೇಸತ್ತು
ಏಕೆಂದರೆ ಗಾಂಧಾರಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟ ಶಾಪದ ಗಾಳಿ
ನಿನ್ನೆಯ ಪಂದ್ಯದ ಮೇಲೆ ಬೀಸಿತ್ತು
ಆದುದರಿಂದ ಕುರುಕ್ಷೇತ್ರವಾಯಿತು ನಿನ್ನೆಯ ಆಟ
ಗೆಲ್ಲುವ ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆ ಆಗಿತ್ತು ಮಹಾ’ಭಾರತ’ಕ್ಕೆ ಪರದಾಟ.

Literary Harvest
by Ramki Bellur

With his Kwik Gun and Wrong ‘un
Literary farmer Baradwaj Rangan
is here with his new harvest
his Reviews are top draw, always the best.

To relish the word’s worth see no further than Baddy
His interviews are as green as paddy
Just as the earth waits for the clouds to drop down as rain
We await BR’s books, which is as sweet as sugarcane.

We are awaiting a bounty from this wordsmith
who busts several well known film’s myth
Ask BR for a Bitty Rumination
Who are his fans? We the nation.

Similar to Pongal, we wait for Brangan
to spread warmth and illuminationwith his writing
He adds passion of Rice with literary milk and humour jaggery
A visit to BR’s blog helps us forget life’s vagary

Pongalo Pongal!
Rangano Rangan!
