Mowgli, My Joy…Sai Wants You To Fly Free


SaiMowgliJust the thought makes my spirit sag…
…that i will never see your tail wag…
…nor hear you respond with a – woo, woo, woo…
…each and every time i call out to you…

The absence of your bark…
…makes our home ever so stark…
That feeling of utter helplessness…
…that we couldn’t overcome the trauma process…
…and make you whole again…
…eliminating the cancer cells…
…that led to such relentless stress…

You set an example…
…when so silently, so stoically…
…you bore your agony…
…through it all managing to wag your tail…
…in response to our voice…
…despite the fact…
…that each breath was an effort lofty…
…and even a few seconds of sound sleep…
…a part of far-flung history…

MowSai
Such a unique wonder you are…
…a marvel…and…
…a marvelous part of me…
…and thus you always will be…
…sweet darling child, my joy…
…my beloved Mowgli…

There is a space within, Monzee-Fonzee…
…that…
…belongs just to you…
…it will never be empty…
…perpetually remaining scented…
…with evergreen memories of you…

You came into our family as a gift from God,
On that wonderful day…
23rd August 2004,
And that’s how it has always been,
So i gave you a nickname –
Hari Prasad…a sanctified boon so full of pure love…
…sent our way from the heavens above…

SaiMowgli2
You were a little black and white spotted bundle…
…all of 23 days old,
You whimpered a lot naturally…
…and as i cuddled you close…
…and kissed your tiny nose…
…i knew destiny had sent my way…
…on that wondrous day…
…treasures and pleasures untold…
…beyond any wealth made of gems and gold…

Right from your ‘puppyhood’…
…i would speak to you…
…and you would answer back…
…each bark a different tone…
…so full of life…
…soon, much too soon…
…you were a handsome full grown…
…you redefined life…
…little did i realize…
…nothing was forever…
You were…what the Universe had bestowed upon us –
A luminescent Cosmic Loan…

SaiMowgli3
Then came the blow…
…every bit in me screamed a – no, no, no…
A dread enveloped my heart…
…when the vet confirmed a ‘sarcoma’…
…it all seemed ever so bizarre…
…as yet so healthy you were…
…how i desired to shake away this nightmare…
…agony left my emotions bare…

My heart bled to see you suffer…
…and along with your suffering…
…so characteristic of your kind…
…oh so, so typical of you…
…you suffered my pain too…
…your beautiful eyes lost their sight…
…i sought and argued for light…
..it was a battle i wanted to win…
…for your existence knew no sin…
…i wanted to rescind the malignant cells…
…stop them from eating you up…
…i so wanted to ease things…
…that were for you…
…so unimaginably rough…
Eventually things turned even more tough,
…the sarcoma reduced you to mere skin and bones…
…leaving a streak of residual strength…
…that was nowhere near enough…

SaiMowgli4
i pondered and wondered…
…my heart, mind and soul shook with rue…
…i do not know much of karmic retributions…
…yet instinctively i knew…
…it is normal for pets…
…specially a pet like you…
…to withstand…
…what you were going through…
Awareness dawned…
…you had taken a lot…
…our lot…a chunk of our adverse slot…
…entirely upon you…

It is unknown…beyond me to fathom…
…just what you were undergoing…
…how much and why…
…all of us simply prayed and hoped…
…for respite…for grace…
…for the ebbing of your pain…
…and our heartache…
…and perhaps the miracle that could…
…that would…
…in relief make us sigh…
And…
…wipe the hushed tears dry…

Each visit to the Vet made us think – what next,
…some well wishers even proposed a solution so vexed,
However, we simply couldn’t take ‘that’ decision as yet…
…deciding to wait out…
…this period that did our grit extremely test…
For,
You were the Creator’s dear child after all,
And,
Beloved Bhagawan knew best…

SaiMowgli6Destiny had plans…
…it was time for you to fly free…
…sans the limits of the physical body…
Even as grief engulfs my core…
…for i wanted more of you, dear Mow,
…a tender desire to snatch some more time…
…before…
…you sailed to the other side of eternity’s door…

Gently, until then unknown to us…
…on the 11th of July 2015…
The grace of the Lord had heretofore blessed,
Your final scene,
…the hours had already been encircled,
By the Parama Ekadashi Tithi,
The environ had enhanced auspiciousness unusually…
…due to the blessed singing of the visiting pilgrims…
…sacred hymns by the vast multitudes of devoted warkaris…

Came soon that chosen moment,
When…
…we had to release your dear form…
…unto Mother Earth’s embracing core,
…the monsoon clouds withheld their downpour,
The sun shone bright sanctifying your soul,
…into the sparkling glades of Forevermore…

SaiMowgli5…i pray your soul essence continues to soar…
i miss you…yet, i know this is the best for you…
…the Divine willed what is for your highest good too…
Nothing can dilute what i hold for you…
…the substance within that makes us one…
…beyond the two…
In that Eternal Light, Mowgli dear…
…we are always together you and i…
i am with you…you are with me…
i am you…you are me…
So…fly, fly, fly…
Fly free…dear, beloved Mowgli…
…know that surely…
Sai wants you to fly free…
So, in the infinite ether of consciousness…
…with Sai,
Sweet Mowgli,my joy…fly free…

One Response to Mowgli, My Joy…Sai Wants You To Fly Free

  1. Lalita Rao says:

    Sairam, I saw the following this morning on FB and wanted to share with you: Love and Sairam,Lalita________________________________________________ A Dog’s Purpose? (according to a 6-year-old).Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa , and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker ‘s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ”I know why.”Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.He said,”People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The Six-year-old continued,”Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”Live simply.Love generously.Care deeply.Speak kindly.Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.Take naps.Stretch before rising.Run, romp, and play daily.Thrive on attention and let people touch you.Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.Be loyal.Never pretend to be something you’re not.If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE…Getting back up is LIVING…~ Source: Ultima National Resources, LLC Date: Tue, 14 Jul 2015 15:06:10 +0000 To: raolalita@hotmail.com
