To Hell or Heaven

To Hell or Heaven

It is said

That when

A Sri-Lankan

Plans to go abroad

He becomes secretive

And almost paranoid

Does not tell anybody

Of his intentions

Lest somebody pulls a string

Under the carpet

To stop

His endeavour

But

Once he is abroad

And found

A filthy dwelling

For habitation

He is in all but praise

Of the new found

Hell sans freedom

Wants all his fellow beings

Left behind

To come, join him

In misery

And share his chores and concerns

I am told

This is so

In the Middle East

Or else as

A refuge

In the West

But,

What is significant?

And the most compelling fact

Is that

When one goes to hell

He makes sure

All his fellow beings

Are pulled out there from here

Like a magnetic attraction

To share the misery

But,

By chance

If he found

A decent and healthy place

As a habitat

He writes home

In shame and disregard

Of the place adopted

Lest he has

To share

The wealth and happiness

Of the New Found Land

This is not

In anyway

A warning for anybody

Who wishes to go out

And explore

The Sri-Lankan

Who wish for divine intervention?

All the time,

End up in hell instead

But,

When one goes to heaven

They go there all alone

Simply because

Increasing the numbers there

Would be antagonistic

To the Zero Growth Principle

Propounded by me

Here and now

The propensity

Adopted by,

The Sri-Lankans

Who are already there

Established in position and fame

Is truly different in magnitude

But,

Buddhist anthology and tradition,

Is the “Kalyana Mitta”,

The true friend who helps

The upward bound

Of beings

To high heaven

Come what it may

Now and always

Sans boundaries,

Of colour, caste, creed or class

Sadly.

It is known for its absence

In the modern world

Of material gain

Is it asking too much?

To go for zero growth

In activity, mobility and expansion

To save our mother nature

Using the eye of wisdom

To see and vision,

The guiding principle

Is “Small is beautiful”

“Less is more”

In Nature

To know this

The man doesn’t

Need a brain as big as

The nature has endowed

Upon him

To apply

The simple principle

Of cohabitation with

Mother nature

The mother of all

Resume for Heaven

Resume for Heaven
If one wants to go to heaven one has to sacrifice some of the earthly things we are used to.
1. One cannot gossip in heaven.
2. This reason cell phones are banned totally in heaven.
3. One has to make personal errands in heaven but this has changed with my friend becoming the Chief’s Assistant.
3. One cannot think in heaven lest one try to create some new heavens.
4. They have a high scrutiny when people like Steve Job tries to enter heaven.
I  cannot talk about it here, now.
His application is pending approval.
5. Email was introduced (this is where I got involved in) recently with the present Maha Brahma’s Assistant taking Office.
6. There is only outgoing mails only.
7. Onward post from Earth is banned.
8. I have a Virtual Email Facility by the courtesy of present incumbent.
9. They are not allowed to sleep or dream except the highest of the order of gods when on duty.
The reason for this is that the gods have to be watchful all the time to prevent any undesirable from Earth enter.
This is about the only job they have to do in heaven.
10. Leave is abundant in heaven one can take as much leave as possible and then one can dream as much as possible. But unfortunately most of the gods cannot dream well, especially the Chief himself.
Most of the gods, the last dream  they had before entering from any sentinel point in the Universe was going to heaven and once one achieves that target there are no dreams left for them to indulge in.
11. Games are plenty and allowed  all the time but betting is completely banned. Apart from email facility one of the reasons they introduced computers  was to play games but war games are completely banned.
12. They are now considering touch system tabloids (without phone facility) to play games and on that ground alone they might consider taking Steve Job to heaven but the entry is still pending and waiting for the approval from the real Maha Brahma on vacation.
So if you think of going to heaven read my resume carefully before one makes an entry.
