A Sea-Tale

On the wide canvas of the sea, there sits shining vividly a tale, brewed perfectly by the blazing sun, waiting to be heard and felt as the good world grows grey.


The waters touch the shore, hold it for a fraction of second and disassociate quickly. Sometimes succumbing to their innate ferociousness, the waves invade the shore completely, establish supremacy, leave their indelible imprints and retreat. The poor shore, on the receiving end, is left to feel, reflect and pretend indifference while being affected all the time. This short rabid association repeats a million times over, but never for once becomes an old tale. Never is the repeatedly sung mysterious sea-song discarded, never do the waves tire buffeting the massive cliffs, never does the land end up surrendering, the game never stops. One blatant and deafeningly loud in expressing grief and ecstasy, the other subtle and calm in absorbing all that is so carelessly flung across its way. Pain there is on either side but to fathom the intensity, is well beyond human intellect. To think of one as arbitrary and perceive the other is erroneous thus.

Some inexplicable mysteries as these are perhaps meant for us to see how unknown much of our discovered territory still is. Harsh, uncertain, ugly but still loved, is life. Certain, serene, concluding, resolving but still loathed, is death. We may be the sea or the shore but a stop to this game there never has been. Human nature like the sea-tale is perplexing, deep but enchanting. We complete our journeys, loving our existence while all the time scorning the terrain we are meant to undertake. We may or may not have a rationale stitched on our sleeves all this while. But all through our stay in this animate world, in the midst of the rampant sorrow and ugliness, beauty, ceaselessly escapes through every whirl we un-whirl…. joy screams out of every fold while love noiselessly pours through every vein and life smiles on and on till death seals all with its bewitching kiss. A new world begins to see sensuality crumbling at the feet of spirituality!! The sea, but never quietens and neither does the LIFE!!!!!!
