    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    There is a <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on">Krishna</st1:place> in every child
    Mischievous, intrepid and bright
    Every son reflects the qualities of Rama
    Obedient, truthful, just and kind
    <o:p></o:p>
    All daughters are the incarnation of Sita
    Loving and tender, caring and joyous
    Who become faithful wives, mothers
    A Sati Savithri
    A courageous, dauntless Draupadi
    Fearless Shakunthala
    Are you and me
    Indian women of destiny
    <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p>Every brother reflects the fraternal loyalty
    Of a Balarama, Baratha or Lakshmana
    </o:p>
    The brightness and intelligence
    Of every son and student
    Is the embodiment of a benign Ganesha

    Every teacher is representative
    Of the protective and caring
    Defending champion of causes
    The brave warrior Karthikeya

    The icons are but part
    Of each person’s psyche
    A reflection, an image
    Of an individual quality
    <o:p></o:p>
    The divine is not apart from a devotee
    The godliness is within the being
    The merits are gained by doing
    The act alone finally rewarding
    A quintessential measure for immortality
    <o:p></o:p>
    Life is a celebration of existence
    Every cloud is a harbinger of rain
    Every breeze carries the nature of emotion
    Every seed the wonder of creation
    Every human of godliness a personification
    <o:p></o:p>
    Rejoice, celebrate, and revel in the holy
    The Divine is you, not some outside entity
    <o:p></o:p>

    Dear Padmini,
    A meaningful poem! No doubt that each one is a part of The Divine, but to realise it one should have deep insight. Well written....... Keep it up!
