French beauty @ Vijayawada

I am composing my french poems into a book. Probably I wrote 40 poems. I have to collect  french poems lying in face book and in other websites like poem hunter. You can expect a book of french poesy. So far no ex phonic writer ( one who writes in foreign languages) has written in three languages. check the ex phonic writers list available on internet) I think you will be happy to note that there is  only one ex phonic writer in the world who wrote in six foreign languages and he belongs to you. 


1.La vue de ma fenetre


Voici la vue du ciel de ma fenetre

Here is the view of the sky from my window

la nature sourit ici, Le ciel vêt de orange
the nature smiles here, the sky is dressed in orange
le bel or de ses feux. les collines bleues couvrent
the beautiful gold of its fires. the blue hills cover
Les champs changent de vêtements
while the fields change clothes
que seront prêts pour la prochaine récolte
theywill be ready for the next harvest.
il est délicieux, Je suis chanceux,
es-tu jaloux?


La nuit brûlée

le ciel était ambré et romantique et ressemblait à une belle botique les nuages sont des écorces d'orange Je conduisais dans le crépuscule doré qui me rappelle sa peau de beurre le vent chantait une chanson d'amour j'ai atteint la destination l'attendit avec préoccupation J'étais en voiture dans la grande rue la lumière dans le ciel a disparu il n'y a pas de lumière au dessus viendra-t-elle ? j'ai été un peu déçu soudain, j'ai vu un flash ci-dessous. elle a souri mon cœur a palpité elle ressemblait à un ange avec son odeur elle est entrée la voiture le vent s'est arrêté la voiture va doucement sur autoroute lumineux nous sommes heureux l'unité efface dénuement je l'ai touchée lentement sur ses belles cuisses elle a touché mes cuisses elle a fait un maléfice le ciel pleut des fleurs d'eau elle a chuchoté à mon oreille je suis devenu une abeille
il pleuvait devant la voiture
dans la voiture la nuit brûle

సొంత వదిననే పెళ్లాడిన రాజు కథ

  పెళ్లంటే రాజకీయం - ఈ మాటంటే మీరు నమ్మకపోవచ్చు . ఐతే ఈ కథ చదవండి 

Is there anyone who does not know the name of Queen Elizabeth?

This is the story of Elizabeth and her husband the Monarch of England Henry VIII. 

Do you know how many wives Henry VIII has? He has six wives.

పెళ్లి రాజకీయం , చావు పండగ , (చర్చ్) దేవుడు దిష్టి బొమ్మ,  విశృంఖల శృంగారం



Catherine of Aragon.

Anne Boleyn.

Jane Seymour.

Anne of Cleves.

Catherine Howard.

Katherine Parr.

Henry divorced two of his wives (Catherine of Aragon and Anne of Cleves), he had two of his wives executed (Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard) and one of his wives (Jane Seymour) died shortly after childbirth. His last wife (Catherine Parr) outlived him.

 

Henry VIII parents

Henry VIII is the son of Henry VII of England and Elizabeth York. She was 12 years old when she got married to Henry VII.  They had six children, only   Arthur, Margaret and Mary survived.

 

వదినతో పెళ్లి

Henry VIII first married Catherine Aragon who is his brother’s wife.  Henry VII ( the father) preferred  Spanish queen to Arthur because England was neither rich nor strong enough. Most alliances  among kings were taking places for political and economic reasons. 

Catherine of Aragon is the Spanish princess. She is the daughter of Isabella and Ferdinand II of Aragon  Catherine was three years old when she was betrothed to Arthur, Prince of Wales, heir apparent to the English throne. They married in 1501, but Arthur died five months later in 1502. 

Henry VII wanted to marry his son’s widow Catherine but her parents refused. Henry VII then wanted to marry Catherine to Henry VIII. But Henry VIII was 10 years old while Catherine was 16. Ferdinand's  refusal to pay the full dowry prevented the marriage from taking place until her fiancé assumed the throne as Henry VIII in 1509. The pope also permitted the marriage after Henry VIII attained 15 years. On his 15th Birthday Henry VIII declared that he would not marry Catherine. (Her mother Isabel died. Henry was not sure about her regency) Catherine lived miserably for two years.  But later Ferdinand gave her a prominent role and made her Ambassador.  Henry VIII married her.

రెండవ పెళ్ళాం 

Catherine gave birth to six children, including two sons, but all except Mary (later queen of England, 1553–58)  died in early infancy.  Henry’s desire for a legitimate male heir prompted him in 1527 to appeal to Rome for an annulment on the grounds that the marriage had violated the biblical prohibition against a union between a man and his brother’s widow.  Catherine appealed to Pope Clement VII, contending that her marriage to Henry was valid because the previous marriage to Arthur had never been consummated.

దేవుడి పై దండయాత్ర

For seven years the pope avoided issuing the annulment.  Finally Henry separated from Catherine in July 1531. On May 23, 1533—five months after he married Anne Boleyn—he had his own archbishop  annul the marriage to Catherine. Parliament passed the Act of Supremacy repudiating all papal jurisdiction in England and making the king head of the English church.

 

Anneboleyn was educated in France, she  was maid of honour to Queen Claude of France. Anne was to marry her Irish cousin James Butler, 9th Earl of Ormond; the marriage plans were broken off, and instead she secured a post at court as maid of honour to Henry VIII's wife, Catherine of Aragon.

చర్చిని కూల్చాడు , పోపుని చంపాడు , పెళ్లాడాడు

Henry VIII began his pursuit of Anne. She resisted his attempts to seduce her, refusing to become his mistress, as her sister Mary had previously been. Henry soon focused his desires on annulling his marriage to Catherine so he would be free to marry Anne. but he failed to obtain an annulment of Henry's marriage from Pope Clement VII . When it became clear that Clement would not annul the marriage, Henry broke the Catholic Church's power in England and closed the monasteries and the nunneries.  As a result of this marriage, the first break between the Church of England and Rome took place, and the king took control of the Church of England.  Henry made Anne the Marquess of Pembroke and married her.

కొడుకు పుట్టలేదని పెళ్ళాన్ని చంపేశాడు

Anne was crowned Queen of England on 1 June 1533. On 7 September, she gave birth to the future Queen Elizabeth I. Henry was disappointed to have a daughter rather than a son but hoped a son would follow and professed to love Elizabeth. Anne subsequently had three miscarriages and by March 1536, Henry was courting Jane Seymour. In order to marry Seymour, Henry had to find reasons to end the marriage to Anne.

పట్టపగలు హత్య

Henry VIII had Anne investigated for high treason in April 1536. On 2 May, she was arrested and sent to the Tower of London, where she was tried before a jury of peers, including Henry Percy, her former betrothed, and her uncle Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk; she was convicted on 15 May and beheaded four days later. Modern historians view the charges against her, which included adultery, incest and plotting to kill the king, as unconvincing.

మూడవ పెళ్ళాం కాన్పులో మరణించింది, నాలుగవ పెళ్ళానికి విడాకులు ఇచ్చేసాడు , ఐదవ పెళ్ళాం కేథరిన్ హోవార్డ్ని కూడా  తలతీయించాడు. చనిపోడానికి కొద్దికాలముందు హేన్రి  ఆరవ పెళ్ళాం గా కేథరిన్ పార్ ను చేసుకున్నాడు . హేన్రి  మరణానంతరం ఆమె రాణిగా కొనసాగింది. రాచకుటుంబాలలో పెళ్లి అంటే రాజకీయమే

అరిథూసా - కిన్నెరసాని షెల్లీ Vs విశ్వనాథ

కిన్నెరసాని పాటలు విన్నారా ? కిన్నెరసాని విశ్వనాథ సత్యనారాయణ సృజన అని తెలుసా ?

కిన్నెరసాని పాటల్లో కథ ఏంటో తెలుసా?
కిన్నెరసాని వచ్చిందమ్మా .. పాట విన్నారా
కొంత మంది విని ఉంటారు ( సినిమా పాట కదా)

కిన్నెరసాని పాటలు 32 పేజీల చిన్న పుస్తకం. (నేను వ్రాసిన వనశృంగారం పద్య కావ్యం కంటే చిన్నది )
విశ్వనాథ వారి కిన్నెర పాట.

తుద కేమి చేయగా 
నెదవోక అలవోక
పతి రాయిగా మారి పడియున్న గుట్టపై 
అతివ తన కెరటాల హస్తాలతో చుట్టి
వెతపొంది వెతపొంది బిట్టు గోషించింది
మాటి మాటికి కొండ
మాద్రిగా పడివున్న
తన నీటుకాన్ని చేతుల కౌగిలిస్తుంది
పలకవా యని మ్రోతపడి పల్కరిస్తుంది
పతి గుట్టపై తాను వ్రాలి యేడుస్తుంది
ఓ నాధ! ఓ నాధ!
ఓ నాధ! ఓ నాధ!

"ఈ కధలో జానపద మూలాలు - అంటే - కధ మొత్తం విశ్వనాధ వారి భావంబర విధిలో కల్పింపబదినదే. కాబట్టి దీనికి కధా మూలం జానపద ములాల్లోనే కాదు, ఏ పురాణ వాజ్మయ ప్రపంచంలోనూ లేదనేది స్పష్టం." అని లోగిలి డాట్ కామ్ లో వ్రాసారు కానీ ఇది తప్పు. ఈ బ్లాగుపోస్టు చదివితే  లోగిలి డాట్ కామ్ వారు తమ అభిప్రాయం మార్చుకుంటారు 

నెల్లూరు ప్రాంతమునకు చెందిన భట్టుమూర్తి  వసుచరిత్రము అనే కావ్యము రచించాడు.

ఇది భారతములోని ఉపరిచర వసువు కథ, ఇది కవిత్రయము రాసిన మహా భారతంలో 45 పద్యాలలో ఉన్నది, దీనిని రామరాజభూషణుడు  విస్తరిస్తూ ఆరు ఆశ్వాసాలు కల ఒక ప్రత్యేక గ్రంథంగా మలిచారు. ఇది మహా గ్రంధం కాదు 127 పేజీల పుస్తకం.  తిరుమల నాయునికి ఈ కృతి అంకితమివ్వబడింది.

ఉపరిచర వసువు, మహా తపస్సు చేస్తాడు, ఆ తపస్సుకి ఇంద్రుడు ప్రత్యక్షమై ఒక దివ్యవిమానాన్ని ఇచ్చి అప్పుడప్పుడూ తన లోకానికి రమ్మన మంటాడు, దీనికి ప్రతిగా ఉపరిచర వసువు తన రాజ్యంలో పూజలు చేసే ఏర్పాటూ చేస్తాడూ, అధిష్ఠానపురం రాజధానిగా చేసుకుని పరిపాలిస్తాడు. 

కోలాహలుడు అనే పర్వతము, శుక్తిమతి అనే నది ప్రేమలో పడతారు. కోలాహలునికి, శుక్తిమతికి ఒక కూతురు, ఒక కొడుకు పుడతారు. కూతురి పేరు గిరిక, కొడుకు వసుపదుడు. గిరికను వసు మహారాజు చూసి తనను గాంధర్వ విధిన వివాహం చేసుకుంటాడు. వసుపదుని సేనాధిపతిగా నియమిస్తాడు. ఇదీ వృత్తాంతం.

శుక్తిమతి యొక్క నిత్యనిర్మలాకార కాంతిధార కు కోలాహలుడు వశుడవుతాడు  శుక్తిమతి తనని ఆదరిస్తుందని కోలాహలు డనుకుంటాడు  ఆమె అభిమతం తెలుసుకోకుండా ఆమెను పొందడానికి నిశ్చితాత్ముడు అవుతాడు కోలాహలుడు. శుక్తిమతీ కోలాహల వృత్తాంతాన్నికొందరు  రసాభాసమన్నారు.

నదులకు, పర్వతాలకు ప్రణయం పొసగదని శుక్తిమతి అభిప్రాయం. పర్వతాలకు, నదులకు సఖ్యమా? వినటానికే బాగోలేదు.  పర్వతాల నుండి నదులు పల్లానికి ప్రవహిస్తాయి.ఆ నదీ జలం పర్వతానికెక్కడం ప్రకృతి విరుద్ధం. జన్య జనక సంబంధంలో పుత్రికా వాత్సల్యం ఉండాలి కాని అనుచతిమైన ప్రణయానురాగం ఉండకూడదని శుక్తిమతి గట్టిగా చెపుతుంది. వావి వరసలు తెలిసి వర్తించాలని బోధిస్తుంది. మదనవికారంలో గౌరవాన్ని మరచిపోకూడదు అంటుంది. పుణ్యదేశాలు తిరిగి భర్తృవియోగ తపనంచేత భర్తను (సముద్రుని) వెదకికొనిపోయె అభిసారికనని అంటుంది.  దీనికి కోలాహలుడు తనది పూర్వజన్మజన్మలప్రేమ అని అతడు చివరికి బలముతో ఆమెను  పొందుతాడు. 







Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) అనే ఆంగ్ల కవివిశ్వనాథ కిన్నెరసానిలో ఏంరాసారో అరిథుసా అనే పద్యంలోఅంతకుముందే అదే రాసాడు. నేను విశ్వనాథ కాపీ చేశారు అనటం లేదు. ఆ భావన ను స్వీకరించి ఉండవచ్చు. అంతకముందు ఎక్కడా లేదు అనడం సరికాదు.
అరిథుసా అనే నదిని ఆల్ఫీయస్ అనే పర్వతుడు (పర్వతం) ప్రేమిస్తాడు.
ఆల్ఫీయస్ టైటాన్ తెథిస్ ల కొడుకు . పెండ్లి అయినవాడు.
( పెళ్లి అయినా వారు ప్రేమించడం హిందూ సంస్కృతిలో ఉందా ?)
అరిథుసా ఆర్టిమిస్ ( డయానా) అనుచరురాలు. డయానా అంటే చంద్రవతి . (మన భాషలో చంద్రుడు.)
డయానా రెటిన్యు లో ( రెటిన్యు అంటే అనుచర గణం ) భాగమైన అయిన
అరిథుసాను నది గా మార్చేస్తుంది. అరిథుసా పరుగెత్తి పరిగెత్తి (ప్రవహించి ప్రవహించి)
ఎంత దూరం పోయినా ఆల్ఫీయస్ వదలదు. వెంట పడుతుంటాడు. చివరకు సముద్రంలో కలిసిపోయిన వదలదు. అతడుకూడా నదిగా మారి ఆమెను అందుకుంటాడు. అరిథుసా కిన్నెరసాని ఒకటే. విశ్వనాథ ముగింపు లో చిన్న మార్పు చూబించారు. కిన్నెరసానిని సముద్రుడికి దక్కనివ్వలేదు . కిన్నెరసాని (శీలం )కాపాడారు. మనకి శీలం ముఖ్యం కదా

neues Leben -30

 At 1.55 pm Mapuii and Meghana landed at Lengpui airport which is 32 kilometers from Aizwal. The gear touched the turmac and the passengers stood up. Mapuii and meghana took their bags from the luggage compartment. Now the airplane crossed the runway and traveling on the taxiway. “My parents live in Khawzawl. It is 150 kilometers from Aizwal. Aizwal is on the way to Khawzawl. I have my uncle and aunt in Aizwal. We first go meet my uncle and aunt. My uncle is rich. He is a contractor. He can help us. Said Mapuii. Ok as you wish said Meghana. The airplane stopped. The stepladder is attached. Mapuii and meghana exited the flight.

                              

Standing on the stepladder Meghana looked at the airport. It looked bizarre amid sere green hills. Mapuii said “This airport is the only airport built by the state government in India. Strange! If not for you I would have felt like a stranger or a lamb missed from the herd. They both climbed down the stepladder. “How should we go to azwal?” Meghana asked Mapuii. She assured that there are taxis. They exited the airport  “But taxis are not in sight.” said Meghana. We must wait until a taxi returns from Aizwal. They were sitting in the flower garden waiting for the taxi. 


Meghana remembered that that aerial journey took 2 hours 45 minutes. Look at the fun air ticket to Aizwal costs 3700/- while Taxi journey costs 3,800.  Who will travel by taxi?” Said Meghana. Mapuii said “air ticket is 3700 per person. In a taxi four people can travel and the cost for four is 3800/- said Mapuii. Oh! Yeah! said Meghana. A Maruti 800 taxi came. Mapuii called the taxi and talked to him in Mizo language. They got into the taxi. Which language is this? asked Meghana. It is Mizo language with Latin script. “Oh! There is no script for Mizo like Tulu in the south.”



The car was running along black narrow tar road.  There are high hills on either side of the road. Soon the car crossed an exotic suspension bridge on Tlawng river. It looked like a bridge familiar in films. “Down below is Tlawang river, the second biggest river 185 km long.” said Mapuii. “What is the first biggest river? asked Meghana. Barak river is the longest. The Barak river is 900 kilometres long. It flows through the states of Manipur, Nagaland, Mizoram and Assam in India. It flows into the Bay of Bengal via Bangladesh. Of its length 524 km is in India, 31 km on the Indo–Bangladesh border and the rest is in Bangladesh. It is called Surma river in Bangladesh. Said Mapuii. “Like the river Ganga is called Padma river in Bangladesh.” Said. Meghana.

 For a few kilometres they were silent. Meghana was watching the nature through car window. Tall green trees, mountain ranges, water bodies… Mizoram is enchanting. said Meghana. “Yes Mizoram is a land of rolling hills, valleys, rivers and lakes. There are 21 major hill ranges. The peaks of different heights run through the length and breadth of the state, with plains scattered here and there. There are several lakes and water falls. Mapuii was describing and meghana was watching the landscape with awe and wonder. “There are eleven districts and three big lakes and three beautiful wterfalls.” said Mapuii again. “I don’t know anything about Mizoram. In fact nobody in our south Indian states knows about all these things. I wish a lesson on Mizoram be introduced in the language textbooks. Said Meghana.

 

The car was passing a tunnel. It became dark. When the car came out of the tunnel Mapuii said I am afraid of darkness of tunnels. In my childhood I was crying while crossing tunnels. Meghana said “like the car came out of the dark tunnel you life come out of the dark marriage. I will pay the bride price to the groom’s father and get you the divorce.

 The car reached Lalbuaia Shopping complex in Zarkaw Aizwal. I don’t know where my uncle lives currently. He is not stationary but my aunt Remi is. She is a beautician.  Let us go to her beauty parlour. She will take us home. Said Mapuii. They went into Diva beauty parlour run by Remi. Remi was surprised to see Mapuii. They spoke for some time in Mizo. Then she introduced Meghana to Remi. She had only one lady client. Remi sent her assistant to lock the door from out side to prevent the entry of another client. “she has deadly intelligence whispered Mapuii to Meghana. Meghana laughed. She quickely finished the facial and called her assistant to come and open the lock. She sent the client and the assistant.



Later she took her to Mac Donald area where she lives. Remi was hospitable asked them to stay for that night. She cooked food. While she cooked she sang Mizo oldies. “Go and take bath we can eat together” said Remi. After taking bath Meghana changed to saree. Mapuii changed to the Mizo traditional dress Paun. Remi changed to Maxi.

 She cooked delicious mizo food and served it into porcelean plates and dishes. Remi said “Mizos are non-vegetarians. They eat fish, chicken, pork and shrimp. But today I cooked bamboo shoot fry. Chum chum han (steamed mix vegetable) and misa mach poora (prans fry), meghana do you eat non-veg?  she asked Meghana. “ No, I don’t.” Said Meghana. After eating Meghana said “ The food is really delicious”  Mapuii went into the bedroom and brought the guitar and gave it to her aunt.

 Meghana is the name of a river here. Said Remi and took the guitar. She is very jovial. She is a guitarist too. She pulled the cords.  Mapuii enjoyed those songs. Meghana asked for her husband. Remi showed the photo of a man and said there he is Diriallova.” When does he come home? asked Meghana. He is in his house but another house ‘laughed Remi.

 Diriallova boasts of the numerous young women with whom he had sex.  Mizo young men’s competence was mainly to have sex with as many women as they could. More sex more manliness. I am his fourth wife. She finished. Meghana was shocked to know that she was the fourth wife. Oh why did you agree to marry a man with three wives?  asked Meghana. Remi laughed and laughed. Meghana was dismayed.

 The people living in the Mizo hills are referred to as the Cucis or Kukis a term adopted by the British writers. Mizos migrated from the neighbouring countries in several waves, starting around 1500 CE. Polygamy is the culture of Mizoram since then.  Even today people accept it.

A Mizo woman has never had any rights over property whether moveable, immoveable or even gifts, known as ‘bungrua’ in the local language, that are given to her at the time of marriage. Her husband can divorce her at any time and throw her out of the house without providing any financial support,” she explained.

 Only in 2013 the Mizo Marriage bill the Mizo Inheritance bill, and the Mizo Divorce bill are introduced in the State Assembly after public consultations. Thank God they checked (stopped) the old culture with new legislation said Meghana.

Laws change but minds won’t. Supremecourt retired judge Makhandya Khatzu’s daughter Arundhati is supreme court lawyer. She loved another lady lawyer Menaka. They fought against the law and changed section 377 and finally had lesbian marriage. But people have not accepted same sex marriage.  In the entire history of mankid, in any country, you can see polygamy.

 Polygamy is human culture; It is the culture of the rich and powerful.  Meghana is frozen. They slept for that night. The next morning when they were starting to Mapuii’s place Khawzhawl. Diariallova came at that time. He gave a valuable practical hit. “Money works in Mizoram as elsewhere. So, give him ten times or twenty times the bride price that Mapuii’s father had taken.” Meghana was bewildered at crazy idea of Diariallova.  “Don’t worry the bride price is normally in hundreds or thousands, he had taken ten thousand not more.”  Meghana thanked Remi aunt and bade good bye to her uncle.

 

                                                                   ***

The taxi stand is at Dawrpui which is just one kilometer to Mc Donald hills. Mapuii and Meghana went on walk. In every street there is a church.  At barabazar they saw several Maruti 800 cars. Maruti cars are common at sight as taxis in Mizoram.  said Mapuii. “Churches also” added Meghana


Mapuii said “Like many of its neighbouring states, Mizoram became part of India following independence from British rule in 1947. Its rugged hills were once considered wild and untameable because of the warring headhunting hill-tribes who lived there. After forceful military subjugation of the tribes by the British, Welsh missionaries were sent in to convert many of the tribes to Christianity. Today, close to 90% of Mizoram’s inhabitants are Christians, with church steeples an indelible part of the concrete mass of buildings in capital and in all other districts. Mapuii finished and called a taxi.

 She told the driver where they have to go. The driver opened the door. They both got in.  The car was going slowly. When it is going over Remphamly Cinema Mapuii said “Cinema theaters are rare in sharp contrast with Maruti cars. Meghana laughed. In Aizawl there are only three theaters Remphamly is the biggest. It can accommodate 55 people at a time. Said Mapuii. Meghana Wondered. “Here the people are after nature, dance and singing. They have more cultural adherence.  They are not after movies as in other places. If there is dancing or singing people automatically join without any hesitation.” said the car driver Lalthanhawla. So they are not modernized said Mapuii. “No, they are not westernized.” Replied Lalthan-hawla (hawla = hala)

 They reached Khawzhawl (kaajal) at 10.00 am. The November weather was cool. It was 14 degrees when they stepped out of the car in front of a small slant tin roofing house they felt the chilled weather. It was a small coloy amid hills. “Khawzhawl  a small town with a population of 13,000 living in 2000 houses.” Said Mapuii. She asked the taxi to wait. Meghana looke around and found most of the houses have tin slanting roof.

 Mapuii’s Mother and father came out of the house and hugged Mapuii. They took Meghana in. The house has five rooms. There was bamboo furniture in the house. Meghana sat on bamob chairs and tables.  Perfect! Beautiful!  said meghana. All furniture was prepared by my father. Mapuii said.  Wonderful uncle, what is your name? asked Meghana. “He was a farmer. He doesn’t know English” Mapuii was explaining. Her father intervened and said “I  Little .. little English.  Name .. Laldenga.. He went to his wife in the kitchen and brought her out and said “Name…Lali”  Meghana laughed, Mapuii also laughed. Lali went back into the kitchen. Mapuii took Meghana round the house. When they came back Lali gave them raice based stew sawchair with mixed herbal chutney. Lali also called in the driver and gave him the breakfast. They are all eating except Lali.

 The interior décor was beautiful. Said Meghana. Mapuii said the carvings are done by my mother. She is good at bamboo craft. Said Mapuii. Later Meghana asked Mapuii to tell her parents why she came. Mapuii had no nerve Meghana had no tongue (language.) Finally Meghana explained Lali in English that her daughter fell in love with Manjeet and she wanted divorce. Lali parlty understood but it was not clear to her. The car driver who understood meghana, explained the same to Lali in Mizo language.

 He father fired, objected and resisted but finally obliged looking at lali’s tears. Meghana asked him to accompany her Champai to the groom’s house. Champai is 40 kilometers and it takes nearly two hours for the journey. His father refused the divorce proposal and denied an outsider. Meghana fell in soup. Having come all the way she found her self in hotwater.  The father himself is not helpful. All the neighbours got in. It was very hard for Meghana to convince people against their culture and beliefs. The driver said “Landenga was not able to speak against polygamy because he has two wives.” Meghana was at her wits end.  Lali said that she would accompany Meghana. Only the  mother stood by her side and they started to Champai.

 The car was going though small villages. On the way they say people celebrating Thalfavang Kut. All are joyful while Mapuii’s face was sorrowful.Thalfavang Kut festival is considered as one of the most significant festivals in Mizoram.  Thalfavang Kut is celebrated at a time when this weeding of the farm lands in Mizoram is completed by the cultivators. Thalfavang Kut is one such occasion when the local inhabitants of Mizoram are involved in a wide array of festive activities.

 


The tribal groups living in all corners of Mizoram participate in various cultural events that are organized during the Thalfavang Kut festival. With vibrant shades of dance costumes the local people of Mizoram present an awe-inspiring range of performances to celebrate Thalfavang Kut.

They reached Champaii at 2.00 pm. They went to the place where the groom Zoramthanga lives with his wives. There was a great fuss until evening. “She has not lived here for a few days. She ran away. This is untraditional.” The groom’s father  blamed Mapuii’s parents. Meghana was arguing but she was one. Lali involved seriously but she had to keep quiet at times. Mapuii spoke occasionally. She said that she does not like the marriage. Finallythe groom’s father suggested that Mapuii should give his son a child. Pity is that all his 13 wives started convincing Mapuii.   At the sun set they agreed to consensual divorce and signed the documents. Meghana paid 3 lakhs and freed Mapuii from the clutches of the meaningless marriage and flew back to Delhi.  A queer land with queer customs she said.

                                                                       ***

 On the cold night 12th of December at 7.30 PM Dr. Mayank tied the knot to Manu. Mayur tied the knot to Kyra. Manjeet tied knot to Mapuii. Three couples are united at the same Muhurt in Noida’s biggest Wedding hall Saffron Banquet owned by Vishnu Sisodia.   Vishnu and Devaki blessed all the couples. These marriages were not private marriages like Devaki’s but extravagant and ostentatious marriages that have drawn high profile business tycoons, sports stars, politicians last but not least private investigators Mir chandani and Vivek Pandit were also present at the fête. Meghana’s parents and son were also present at the

 

Lakuma was seen in red silk saree. Devaki sat beside Lakuma on the sofa in the front row. Devaki complimented Lakuma’s red saree. She thanked Lakuma for for being very helpful. Lakuma thought that Devaki was thanking her for getting Meghana released. “It is my duty!” responded Lakuma courteously. Devaki said “If not for Vivek Kyra’s life would have been spoiled.” This is news to Lakuma. She did not fully comprehend how Kyra was helped by Vivek because Vivek did not tell Lakuma Kyra’s story. Vivek had a plan.  Devaki was called by Panditji and she moved on.

Two women in the wedding hall were talking about Vivek. One woman showed vivek to the other woman and said “He is the detective who had saved the Bengali bride. The couple who are speaking to vivek are her (kyra’s) parents. “perhaps they are thanking him for his help.” Said the other woman.

 Lakuma over heard all this and walked out of marriage hall. She was angry with Vivek for not telling a word about kyra’s episode. Nobody noticed her except vivek who ran after her. Lakuma started her car and went away. Vivek took a taxi and followed her.

 

                                                                ***

 

At the wedding hall Meghana stood beside Mappu and Jittu. Mapuii had nothing but tears for Meghana. Meghana had zero bank balance. Vishu offered a commercial complex to Meghana. Meghan refused to take such a huge gift. Devaki gave it with her hands and said “This is for your son little kannhaya. You are only the custodianof your son until he is grown up.” Meghana had to accept the gift. Devaki had won her heart with love.  Meghana is now a rich lady.

 Vishnu gave Kannhaya a buiding in Mathura for the setting up of hospital. Manu gave kyra her apartment back. Kyra has not accepted. Devaki mediated with Mayur who inturn negotiated and Kyra. Kyra accepted to live in the apartment on rent. The rent was not money but bunch of flowers and a coconut to be given in Mathura in person everymonth. The wedding hall was filled with claps.

 Kannhaya - Manu and Vishnu - Devaki couples decided shift to Mathura.  “I want to relax in Mathura. My brother will look after my businesses. My Bengali daughter Kyra and Mizo daughter Mapuii are married. My Andhra daughter Meghana will marry when ever she finds a suitable groom. I will take her son to Mathura. He is the little kannhaya for us. I have worked and earned enough. Now I want peace and pleasure. I think Mathura will give me peace Devkai will give me pleasure. Meghana’s parents gladly accepted it. Because Mathura is only two hours journey Meghana can go and see her son whenever she wants.

 Devaki held little kannhaya in her arms. “I will take care of little Kannhaya.” She said to Meghana. Meghana kissed her son. “Who will take care of grown up kannhaya?” Asked Dr.Mayank. Manu whispered in his ears I will, I have resigned my job to be in your service. You serve the people I serve you. Mathura is our Brindavan.  Little kannhaya was waving back at Meghana.

 

                                                                      ***

 

Lakuma was very serious in her bedroom. Vivek was back home.  “In the marriage they were telling me that you saved and sheltered Kyra. I am happy for that.  Tell me why did you not tell me? I felt very up set. Tell me? Why did you not tell me? Vivek felt like the same song in loop for the repeat play.  Why did you not tell me? She was still asking. Vivek silently kept the envelope in her lap that consists of Kyra investigation report. She opened and started reading. Vivek went into the bath. Lakuma now understood why vivek did not tell her.

neues Leben 29

Devaki never knew such rich places  and such lavish palaces. She is unable to believe what her eyes see. She was embellished with rich jewelry and bedecked with exotic flowers. She entered the bedroom with mixed feelings of love, desire, joy and worry. Vishnu was not a man of hurry. He loved her personality. Of course! He loved her delicate beauty too. She entered the royal bedroom and stood at the door. Her feet became heavy and don’t move. Vishnu switched off the light. There was a small candle throwing faint light.

Darkness enveloped night when she entered the bedroom

The bright radiance form her body looked like full moon in semidarkness

She looks like Gandharva queen with all kids of jewelry

She knows what kind of night it is. He looked at her

Laughed, Devaki covered with mantle on head turned shy

 

 

Vishnu was not in a hurry. The night is young. She is his for ever. He felt that her presence was more than romance. Her aura and grace delights him. He made her sit on the royal divan in the large bedroom with huge windows. They went on talking. She spoke little because she was preoccupied with Kanhaya and Kyra and Manu. That next morning she has to speak with Manu’s parents. Vishnu knows that she was preoccupied. He consoled and said that everything would go well.  Finally when she relaxed enough he brought her on to his bed and seated her beside him. She was delighted with his persona. Her delighted eyes invited him. He Laid his hand on her shoulder. She is titillated by his touch

On seeing that dazzling beauty his desire aroused.

The following day was more wonderful than she could imagine. The city looked different. Life looked different. Vishnu’s mother is very loving and caring. His brother and sister have showed affection. Her mother in law told Davaki “ For a few days don’t do anything. Look after your husband.” Devaki smiled. Every house hold work was carried out by the servants. She was not allowed to do even small things. She was allowed to prepare coffee and give her husband towel. She fondly carried out those things for her husband. At eight they got dressed up and finished their breakfast. They were sitting sports room. There is billiards board. He asked her to play. He helped her to strike the Q ball by leaning over her. He touched her shoulders and waist.  She thought that he will be busy all the time. To her surprise he was not even answering calls. He preferred to spend time with his family members and her. Time was moving fast in that great company. Her heart is waiting for kannhaya. Suddnely Vishnu said “Devi, why don’t we go to lavanya apartments?” Devaki was surprised at her new nickname. She said , “ Would you like to go?” He said “ I would love to”

 

The chauffeur driven Lamborghini ursus was ready. They go into the car and the car was moving steadily. It was a wonderful experience to Devaki. Vishnu told Devaki a proposal that delighted her. She leaned on her hushand’s shoulders.  In a few minutes they were dropped at Lavanya Apartments. Kannhaya was in Devaki’s flat. He looked lonely when the couple went. He did not eat breakfast.

 

 Devaki was preparing breakfast for her son. Vishnu sent his driver to get breakfast caserol from his car. Manu and her parents are in the Hotel. We are going to meet them. Before wee go and meet them I would like to give something to kannhaya. But he sould not refuse Said Vishnu. Kannhaya finished breakfast and said “Yes I will not refuse.” Then Vishnu told kannhaya I would like to gift you my building in Mathura to you.”  I have a job in Meetrut. What will I do with the building there?” 

 

Devaki said “ He has the same love for you as your mother. Take it and run a hospital and serve people.”   I am also serving people in teaching said Kannhaya. Vishnu understood that he was feeling below dignity to accept the building. He said “ In india we need one doctor for every thousand patients. But unfortunately we don’t have one doctor for 1800 patients. But teachers are not like that. You studied medicine not to teach. Respect your studies” said Vishnu. Devaki said “I want to see you as doctor for which I worked very hard. Don’t you want to fulfill your mother’s dream?” Kannhaya yielded. We will go to amthura and get it registered in your name after betrothal with Manu. Shyness showed on Kannhaya’s face. Devaki asked kannhaya “How you want to introduce yourself to Giriraju and Bhoomi( Manu’s parents)?”He said “as Kannhaya” Devaki said “ No, as Dr.Mayank. That is your profesion.” Dr. Mayank laughed.

 

Giriraj said” we are satisfied with Dr. Mayank’s family background and profession”  Manu was engaged to Dr. Mayank. When Panditji was looking at almanac to fix the Muhurt Manu refused to marry unless Kyra was found. Vishnu and her Manu’s parents wanted her to marry wthout waiting for Kyra. Devaki supported Kyra.  There arose a big chaos. Suddenly vivek entered the scene with Kyravai. Manu hugged kyravi. Vivek started telling them what has happened.

neues Leben - 28

 Jal vayu apartment: The amber sun is singing aubade to the auspicious day. The sky looks like a marriage pandalin embellished with cloud pearls. The birds are trilling melodious marriage tunes. Kyra and Manu stood side by side on the terrace. Kyra is wearing half white kanchipattu silk saree with pink boarder. Manu is wearing a dark pink saree with white border. They look like twin stars on the terrace looking at sun.

 

 Despite Kyra’s resistance Manu bought sarees sandles and gifts to Kyra the previous night when they went shopping. She also bought a gold chain, a ring, pendants, rinkets and perfumes for kyras marriage. When kyra was resisting these marriage gifts Manu smelled the rat and scolded “Why should a girl going to be married refuse marriage gifts?” she shouted. Kyra was silent.   

 

Manu looked at Kyra and said “You look like an angel of beauty. Kyra thought to herself “Yes, an angel who could not go to heaven, spending her time on the earth painfully.” But she said “you look like angel of peace” said Kyra. Kyra looked quite disappointed and dull inspite of external appearance.  Manalini suspected that something went wrong between Kyra and Mayur. It seems that kyra is frustrated. She does not express her problem. Perhaps she thinks her problem can not be solved. Manu became direct “You look unhappy today.” “I am happy” said Kyra.

 

                                                                 ***

 

Kyravi Manu Mapuii and Meghana are at Mayank apartments. Kyravi’s flat was fully furnished. They all went into every room touched the walls, smelled the cupboards and felt the tiles and marbles. What a wonderful house said Meghana and Mapuii. Kyra and manu sat in the hall on the divan set. Meghana and Mapuii sat on the sofa. Manu said “ If Devaki came it would be happier.” You always think about Devaki, are you going to marry her or Dr. Mayank? Do you ever think of him? Asked Meghana.

 

“You have not introduced Dr. Mayank to me. Don’t you want to? You should have invited him the new flat.” Said Kyravi.  Today we should not disturb them. We have to leave them” Nobody expected that this marriage will take place in days. These circumstances in which this marriage is taking place leaves us confused.  I wanted to go to Rajastan to meet my parents.  I could not go. Said Manu. “No problem you invited them.They will reach this evening. Why do you worry? Said Mapuii.  My worry is about You Mapuii we have to work out a solution for your problem but we can’t until Devaki’s marriage is over.

 There is no time to listen to yor story. Kyra has to go to kolkatta to meet her parents.” we want to marry at the same time.  This evening onwords the hotel rooms are open for us bring your parents directly to Hotel Sri Krishna Grand Noida from Delhi railway station directly. Said Meghana. This is all because of the Muhurt said Mapuii.

 Panditji said “the murhuta was of great importance with respect to the horoscope of Devaki and Vishnu that it can not be missed.” Devaki’s parents who came from Mathura. All elders of the Shisodia family including Vishnu’s mother, younger brother and sister were also present there. They all liked early marriage. Panditji said “subhasya seegram” So Devaki’s marriage has been planned so urgently as a private ceremony in one of their hotles in Noida – Sri Krishna Grand.

 We must start now it is already 12.00 pm. My parents are coming by udapur express which reaches Delhi by 3.00 pm. I must be there when the train comes. They all decided to take lunch in Dwaraka. Kyra locked the door and gave it to Manu. Manu felt strange. Kyra gave her house documents and said “ please take this , this flat is a gift to you” said kyra. Mapuii and Meghana clapped. You can give it in my marriage. Kyra did not listen.

 

                                                          ***

Manu picked up her parents from the New Delhi railway station and brought them to Sri Krishna grand, Noida by taxi. It is a three star hotel with large open space in the front with an attractive fountain. In the mddle of the fountain there is a pedestal. Lord Krishna’s idol with fife in his hand was on the pedestal.  Manu’s parents folded their hand at the statue and walked into the hotle. Except Devaki family all others stayed in the hotel.  Meghana, Mapuii, Manu, Kyra and a few more frineds were given rooms in the hotel. They were Luxury double rooms. Though two persons can stay in each room they locked all the rooms and stayed in one room.

 

The next day morning the Muhurt was at 7.56.  Devaki was going to be knotted. They were quite excited to see Devaki in bridal make up. Tomorrow is the life transforming day for her. They were unable to sleep the night before marriage.  After dinner at 8.00 “Mapuii this is the right time to tell your story. Said Meghana. Mapuii said that it is going to spoil the mood. But everybody insisted.

Here you should understand Mizo Ram culture a little bit to understand my story. Mizo is the name of the tribe and Ram means Land. It is a Matriarchal


society but polygamy is predominantly practiced. The person having highest number of wives is from Mizoram. His name is Chana. With 39 wives and 94 children he created a world record and became popular in BBC news. Another man who had 13 wives impregnated all of them at the same time. They were all shocked and stood agape. There is bride price in practice. (Boys father pays the money. Girl’s father receives the money).

 Oh! Tell me your story. Said Kyra. “You don’t understand my problem unless you understand the culture.” Manu said 

You know that people are born into rich and poor families and similarly into different cultures. Everybody regards his as culture great and try blindly to glorify the past even without knowing it. More than 87 percent are converted into Christians. Marriages are made in churches and the churches have a say in the matters of divorces.  The churches openly condemn polygamy without sincerity is a show. The churches and politicians indirectly favour polygamy. Look at the chief minister’s tweets.

 

Under these circumastances I am married to a man with nine wives as tenth wife. I waited for my turn but it did not come. I spent a few months like a life less doll and returned to my parents. My father told me that divorce is very difficult because he has to return the bride price. He has no money. Later I came to Delhi. I don’t accept that I am married. But they all say that I am married. All frineds consoled her.

 Kyra explained the sishodia’s background based on his surname.

 jodha, jahala, kachwaha, Kothari, sishodia and Minihas are all Suryavansi dynasities who once ruled the Merwar region. Minihas are Ikshwaku dynasity.

 Pawar , solanki, chouhan are Angnivamshi Rajputs.

Chandela, Bundela, Chavada are Chandravamsi Rajputs

Deshmukh, kapadia, Rana and Mehta are other important groups of Rajputs. 

 

Vishnu was the descendents of the king sishodia. Kyra concluded that mainly Rajputs are the descendents of either kings or warriors. We can make out the history from the surname. Everybody looked for Manalini’s surname. “Dongre” said Manu. “That means you are Chandravamsi Rajput.” declared Kyra. Manu smiled and said we are not regarded as Rajputs we are regarded as Bishnois.  Manu’s father Giriraj and mother Bhoomi asked them to sleep as it was midnight.  They all slept for the night.

                               


Sri Krishna Grand was decorated. The servers were given marriage dresses and gifts.  Devaki was shining like a star in the Marriage venue. Vishnu is wearing white Dhoti. Vishnu and Devaki looked like made for each other. There are filled with the same devotion for Krishna. Devaki was delighted with the Krishna statue in the Hotel. She felt the Lord Krishna came to her marriage and watching her. Vishnu tied the knot. Devaki is not a lonely woman now. She is the queen of an empire and a beloved husband. Kannahya went to near by temple and cried while all the guests are taking lunch. When they were parting they discovered that Kyra is missing.
