The Ganges - mandakini-brahmaputra-bhagirathi

by the doc

Age Group: Adult

Alone and woeful
on the summit of Escapes
with a coward’s courage
reflecting upon the flow towards futility
being cornered by fear
facing the valley
dark, deep and deserved
another among the regenerating millenia..
A life
like a trash magazine
sold by lewd vendors
read by loose, lusty eyes
with nothing left sacred
in its terrible stagnancy....
A Hatful of Rain
based on the stage play by Michael V. Gazzo....
is the story of a drug addict's debilitating effect ...
his family [ a bollywood film too by the same filial name]...
Don Murray has managed to keep his addiction secret from his pregnant wife Eva Marie Saint ....
and his boorish father Lloyd Nolan, but Murray's brother Anthony Franciosa knows...
the truth - which is rumoured to set anyone Free,
Murray hits up Franciosa for money to support his habit...
but even this is not enough
as the addiction deepens
and Murray finds him-self
beholden to a vicious pusher, a chap called (Henry Silva)
..... Murray is unable to cope
with his private hell
until he confesses to his wife
and father that he's a junkie..besides being a
dipsomaniac, also fond of transvestites and peeping Toms..
and needs help. ....
Considered the last word in realism in 1957
A Hatful or hateful
of [torrential] Rain seems
slightly antiquated
in the light of the drug-abuse excesses of the 1990s....
In Indian Scriptures
a certain god fond of cows and flutes
also mentions in his magnanimous egomania
I am the Ganges
I am the Himalayas
I am the mother of all the Vedas called Gayatri
cosmic and cosmopolitan saints decided
what the heck..
Let Him Be
what difference does anybody's or everybodys'
remembering footballs, lassies, chorus-girls etc.
Make to the Maker?
