A man does come
with empty hands,
but doesn’t go
as people say…

A man’s hands are full,
with emotions and wishes,
either good or bad,
of his near and dear ones,
when he leaves
for his last journey…

How he is remembered
after his departure
from the scene
are the real earnings of his life,
that he not only carries with him,
but also leaves for the posterity,
with his hands open…

–Kaushal Kishore



  1. Beautifully penned, dear KK. This is spot on in every way, especially that last stanza. I love how you make the reader think about their own journey/legacy. Powerfully done as always, my friend 🤍🤗

    1. Thank you, Devang! I’m glad you liked it. A good question. After completing stay in one body, the soul is subjected to rebirth according to karma. Thid cycle continues till the soul achieves Moksha (salvation).
