A Poem by Manoj J Lekhi (Amrut Vivek)


I am walking and am tired,

A god is waiting for me in form of “Shade”


I am walking and am thirsty,

There is a god who offers me water


I walk further and get hungry,

I am served with food by a god.


I walk in hot sun and get sweaty,

Some god gives me water to take a bath.


I keep walking and my legs start to pain

Some god comes in a vehicle and offers me a lift.


I walk walk and walk, with a god

On top of my head in form of a wet napkin.


I walk till late in the evening

Till my legs give away


And some god offers me a night rest in a temple.


Padyatra is about seeing and experiencing

The infinite wisdom (god) every moment!


Thank you thank you thank you
