Poem- Oh, Super Human! Where have you concealed yourself?

  • In Tamil: V.N.Giritharan; Translation in English Dr. R. Dharani –

Concrete! Concrete and Concrete
Walls! Ingesting the rays to radiate flames
Blameless, pellucid white surface,
Chuckling Cement-clad pathway.
In the embrace of the audacious columns,
lies enraptured spaces
heat rays cut through the layers of air.
In the pleasure of delusion over
The grass being excited
by the smiles of dew drops,
There is a gloomy cloud of thought over
The cool Lady Earth under her blue canopy.

The embracing dreams of the
Drooping tree belles’ cuddle.

The impact of artificiality
Spreading over Nature’s repository.

In trees, on grass, in herds, in caves,
In the dreadful hours of darkness,
Panicked by the lightning storm, under the torrential shower,
Coiled up in the times of bewilderment,
Continued the ancient journey

In the gyres of Nature’s Effect,
Lies the life captivated.
Are the gyres blissful dawns?
Are they the fascinating Arcadia?

In the heart that builds castles in the air
With the pride of wisdom…………
Ahhhh….. That peace of mind! That sweetness.
Where are they? Where are they?
Where to find? Alas! Where did they get lost completely?
In the smoke of the flickers, in the Fuming wars of the Classes that is
Causing the choking of breath,
The atmosphere is floundered by
The dance of bombs.

Dearest friends, who flew fearlessly!
My beloved comrades, who swam with cheerful grin!
The tree offspring who slumbered
Calmly by the breeze!
Beloved friends who are distraught by the Sixth sense!
Growing in the path of development…..?

Despair! Loss of peace! Haughtiness
War! War! War! War means ……
War! War! War!


What mistake is spurred by progress!
What mistake is spurred by progress!
What mistake is spurred by progress!
What mistake? What mistake?
What mistake?

Ahh…….. that …

Peace! Peace! Peace!
Love! Love! Love!
Joy! Joy! Joy!
Oh, Flame of Wisdom!
Where have you concealed yourself?
Where have you concealed yourself?
Where have you concealed yourself?
