Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.


I have strived to serve them,

To exalt the sweet beauty of their sorrows;

Praise and magnify, the deep Gratitude of their joys.

My Soul nourished the unspoken dreams of their Spirit,

While their hope sparkled in my embrace.

Yet they adorned my saplings in their yearning,

Cascaded their sweetness, like rain,

Until I was truly harvested.

The tree bends laboriously,

Yet rejoices when we partake

Of its sweet fruits, in plenitude.

So too, our needs entwine, and

Like the mother of tenderness,

We delight in the Love which gave us birth.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. Copyrighted, 17th November, 2015.

      A lovely tribute to our Venkatachari ji. He has a beautiful Soul. Thank you for writing on 'Give and Take', and of course, for the valuable lessons in the poem. They say, as you sow so shall you reap. May Brahma and Saraswati Ma continue to bless your Inner Light, always and forever. Har Har Mahadev!

      This is a beautiful tribute to Venkatachari ji, a wonderful hubber. As usual your expressions are lovely with deep thoughts.

      "The sweet beauty of their sorrows." This the kind of phrases that reminds me Keats and the period of the Romantics.. You're in their rank.
