Ode to Manatita. A Narrative Poem On His Special Day.


One pleasant day on February the 10th,

The unruffled glacial clouds dangled

And canoodled across the Caribbean Sunshine;

Waltzing with the elegance of Natraja, The Lord of Dance –

Ah! The cosmic waves of the Atlantic Ocean smiled.


The aroma of Honeysuckle, Roses and Jasmines

Magnified the sweet-scented island,

Soon as the celestial Temple bells sublimely chimed

In cadence with the nightingale’s melody.

Ah! The leaves fluttered jubilantly as the tropical breezes

Drifted over the white sandy beaches;

Drawing myriad stratums of Love and Peace…


Meanwhile, a cry resonated within

As the Soul soared in the most pious sanctum,

And the Divine womb sensed a miracle

Sent from Heaven with joie de vivre –

A most precious Jewel was born!


Muffled up in the arms of a Queen,

Innocently, his tiny fingers were entangled with her fingers

Like the silky ribbons touch the skin.

He giggled, she giggled…

The crystal clear beads of her eyes twinkled with cheer –

While She said, “Welcome to this Beautiful World, my Son!”

He found her haven in her angelic eyes

And the butterflies danced with a peculiar Delight!


O Manatita! My Beloved Manatita,

May the Supreme Brahma bless your Noble Soul!

Birthday Song For Manatita.


May this special day come again and again

May my Heart sing this melody again and again

May your Golden moments be filled with joy and serenity

May you keep smiling and laughing in its entirety

I wish you live a thousand years

O my Angel, cheers… cheers.


Happy Birthday to you,

Happy Birthday to you,

Happy Birthday to my Dear Manatita,

Happy Birthday to you!


There is none as charming as you

On whom one’s glance just stays.

My inner King is bedecked with vermillion roses,

Where a soft gentle breeze

Praises his winsome smile and rays.


For your lotus-like feet, my Angel,

I’ve festooned copious petals on your path.

I could’ve brought the entire garden today,

But my Heart whispered, what’s the need of flowers

When he himself personifies spring,

Making every bud’s Heart

Swell with Love and Gratitude.


May this special day come again and again

May my Heart sing this melody again and again

May your Golden moments be filled with joy and serenity

May you keep smiling and laughing in its entirety

I wish you live a thousand years

O my Angel, cheers… cheers.

Very Beautiful, Surabhi. I like the vision you gave us of the noble Manatita coming into this world with giggles. How sweet was that?! I loved that part. I'm a mother, and I can remember both of my children coming to me from the womb. It's a beautiful sight. You have given Manatita a very loving and deserving birthday blessing. Happy Birthday Manatita!!!

Shaloo, Chitrangada ji, Frank, Ruby, Vasantha, Hari Bhaiya, Missy and Venkatachari ji –

It is very delightsome to read everyone’s warm and cordial birthday wishes to Manatita. You all have said it so beautifully, and with all your Heart and Soul. Thank you, my dear lovely friends for contributing your time and efforts. Birthdays should be celebrated with great merriment and cheer.

It’s a day when we light a candle that symbolizes our Soul. And, when many hands gather around the candle flame to shield it from the wind, then what else can one ask for? Such noble gesture simply proves a deep sense of care and love. Your presence was indeed gracious. So glad to see you all! You have enhanced the celebrations on this auspicious occasion. I pay my utmost love and gratitude to you all. God bless all. Om Namah Shivaya.

Venkatachari ji,

You are so sweet. Such a beautiful Soul! Thank you so much. Yes, yes, I am better than before. Jai Bhole.

Manatita,

So my Dear One,

I’m sure you had a cheerful birthday celebration. Thank you for visiting. I am delighted to note that you appreciate it. I’m honoured. What else shall I say?

Much thanks for taking care of everyone’s feedback during my absence. Your humble approach is highly commendable. I have been sick since the last week. With God’s grace, I am hale and healthy once again. Sound health! I will catch up here after February 17th... after my exam. My Love and Respect to you always. Jai Manatita... Jai Bhaghwan… Peace.

Dear Surabhi Kaura, at last I know you a little, through our mutual dear, deserving friend, Manatita. I love your tribute to him here, in melodic verse, music and lovely pictures! He's so generous to praise others with outpourings from his big heart and lovely poetry.

February is also my birth month (Feb. 2) and today (Feb. 13) would have been my beloved George's 94th. So it's a most auspicious month for special birthdays! And as Manatita just mentioned in the comment above mine, every day is a day to celebrate --being born and being alive!

I've not been as active on HP for awhile, but it's lovely to come and find such special people and all their thoughts and writings.

So Sweet Nellieanna.

Sorry Surabhi, I have beaten you to it. Nellieanna is very, very Dear to me, and it means a lot that she saw this Hub. Love to you, Dearest Nellieanna. Happy, Happy Birthday again to you, and to George in Heaven. Deepest Gratitude ...much.

Billy Sir,

Thank you so much. I am glad to see your feedback. Much Appreciated! God bless.

Hi Dearest Nellieanna,

I always wanted to know you. Manatita often praises about your poetries. Yes, he is indeed a deserving friend. It’s such an honour to see your comment here. Let me take the liberty to wish you a happy belated birthday and also to Mr. George. God bless. I will soon catch up here after my exam. Such a pleasure to know you. Much Respect and Love.

Manatita,

Ha ha. It’s your hub, my friend… so you have all the liberties. Take care.

Manatita, I've been slow getting here to enjoy this marvelous hub and really appreciate your telling me about it! I've been so much less involved in HP lately - and it seems to be in need of me. haha.

How exciting that you're a wacky Aquarian, too, Surabhi. Thank you for a lovely response to my comments and the belated birthday wishes.

Thank you, Nileanna, for your visit here and your nice words of love and wisdom. Wish you a very very Happy Birthday and to your Mr.George in heaven also. Thanks a lot and seek your blessings.

I appreciate the love and concern so much, Surabhi. You say such lovely things! Yours, too, Venkatachari. My website's server changed hands recently. There are some loose ends about getting my files all properly moved, so there could be issues with accessing everything, until I get it all in place. ButI will.

It was a lovely birthday and has been expanding ever since!
