Reality



Real number line with finite precision,
That is how we measure,
The vastly infinite and immeasurable…
Nature’s absolute treasure!

Ratings, scores and indices everywhere,
You know, that’s easy to compare;
Marks, grade and divisional shade
Numbers arise and colours fade!

Wanna watch a movie, surprise twists and unknown story?
Oh! That’s a perspective of a bygone age 😕
IMDB ratings or ⁂stars⁂ only matter;
Movies are rated by their scores’ percentage!

How impactful are Newtons’ discoveries?😑
Or Gauss’, Eulers’, Ampère’s thoeries?
Negligible, aren’t they? with miniscule h-index!
That’s what matters; mere research is like fairies!


Entertainment counted in Tele-rating-points (TRPs),
It is also a numbers’-game
Oh! You might be a brilliant artist,
But with low TRP, you are just a shame!!!

“How do you feel?” – is it even a valid question?
ABCD, SAPS-II, Wells and Krenning – scores of scores [1]
Treatment of humans – going impersonal… 😕
Doctors’ job becoming just chores!!

Learning machines and un-learning people,😑
Thus help the numbers, to the “so-called” progress
Just pause a little before we forget -
Poetic pleasure in life, in a run for success!!

[1] This line describes names of various scores used in medical treatment.

विक्रम

पेटले कुठेसे पाणी 
त्यासाठी जळते मत्ता |
एन्-नम्मा मोडून भांडून 
जन संगती त्यावर सत्ता 👿 ||

पेटल्या कुठेशा जाती 
जन लाख लाख एकत्र 
आग्रही शांत वा तप्त 
हे आरक्षणार्थ सत्र ☹️!!

कुणी यादव तो नाराज 
खो खो खुर्चीचा चाले 
कुणी खुनी मोकळा होई 
कायदा कुणाला तोले?  😱

धास्ती सीमेपलीकडची
वित्त-प्राण-संयम नेई 💀
अश्रूंच्या लाटेमधुनी 
प्रतिशोध धुमसता राही 😠

चहूबाजू हा डोंगर तो 
संकटेच भरूनी येती 
परी जन ना थांबत तेथे 
प्रज्ञास्थित पुढेच जाती 🌝 

ऐशाच अनोख्या देशी 
घनगगनालाही गवसणी 
ग्रह अंतराळी भरारे 
नवविक्रम दावी तुफानी !!
💫
