You Are The Envied One

When I get mischievous like you

I am scolded

When I am naughty like you

I am chided

When I try to steal butter

I am reminded to stay off calories

When I run out to play like you

I am called reckless.

Lord, you are the envied one!

When my cricket ball breaks a window pane

The neighbours whine

 When you dance on the head of the serpent

You are adventurous

When I tie a tin to a dog’s tail

I am called insensitive

When you break the Gopis pots

You are adored

When I break a potted plant

I am rebuked.

Lord, you are the envied one!

You don’t have to attend school

No home works to complete

 When you play on the flute you are cute

I am given the flute only on your bday

When they deck me like you

When you dance it’s Ras Leela

When I break into a dance it’s mindless!

Lord, you are the envied one!

You are always having fun being out with friends

What do you do to not get chastised?

How do you manage to be so loved?

Even after you do all the things I do?

I want to be like you

By the way,

My name is also Murali Krishna

                                                   But the world treats me differently!

  7. Poetry and portrait both are superb!!
    So are the innocent complaints of a child.
    Sri Krishna’s lotus eyes are so beautiful and His very charming face which is made all the more charming by His extremely pious smile and curling locks decorated with a peacock’s tail-feather.
    Simply mesmerising !!

  9. प्रभु के इतने सुंदर नयन देख के उनमे डूब जाने का मन करता है और छवि ऐसी कि बस निहारते ही रहूं
    क्या खूब बनाया है आपने
    आपको और आपके द्वारा बनाये गए प्रभु को नमन🙏
