The IPL Fever
IPL has been the latest fever
Keeping everyone busier than ever
Man and woman, young and old
All were game for this pot of gold.
TV channels were busy with TRP ratings
Teams were busy anticipating and speculating
The game was spinning real big money
That was sweeter than the sweetest honey.
Children skipped their playtime
Housewives shortened their kitchen time
Men were constantly meditating on the game
Hoping their team would clinch the game.
And look what was the end result of this game?
Many went berserk and insane
Lust and greed took centre stage
Gambling became a part of the game.
Fans felt cheated and betrayed
Authorities swung in to contain the mess
Everyone was shocked beyond repair
For how could their favourite game bring in such despair?
Human birth is not meant for lust and greed
All humans should take heed
Lust and greed are royal roads to hell
Then why follow such a path to slip into hell?
Mend your ways the sastras say
For you are a pure soul all the way
Do not fall prey to the whims of the mind
For it will take you through a lot of grind.
Karma will catch up some day or the other
For Nature’s laws no one can break or smother
Shelter of guru and Krishna is the only way
To get eternal bliss all the way.
