RM11. WHERE HAD GUARDS GONE?

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

RAMANA MAHARISHI

At Gurumurtham for 18 months
There were two main persons
Taking care of Ramana as guards
But still there were few troubles.

Thambiran had some job outside
He told Nayanar, “Please guard
Ramana, the junior, for a month
Until I come back next month.”

But he never came back again
So, Nayanar took care, in turn.
He had also somewhere gone,
Leaving Ramana there alone.

God sent one more person,
As a surprise from the town,
Whose name was Pazhanisami
To guard this young Sanyasi.

On the top of a watch tower,
Pazhanisami was sitting there,
Guarding Ramana as divine son,
Who was in his deep meditation.

Nellaiappar came by then
To Tiruvannamalai Town,
And he got the information,
Ramana was in the mango garden.

To enter the mango garden
He had no special permission.
He approached Sub-Registrar
Requesting him to interfere.

He sent a chit, “Manamadurai
Advocate is in Tiruvannamalai
To interview the Sub-Registrar
And obtain his personal favor.”

Immediately he got permission
To enter the mango garden.
He was shocked to see him,
While trying to convince him.

But this old man’s soft words
Failed to enter Ramana’s ears.
When the boy kept silence,
He had lost all his patience.

He went back, in frustration,
Without the boy, to his hometown.
How to face the poor mother?
He was feeling pity for her.
