Re: Aba Brother

I agree with you big sis. The ferocity of the tiger (in man), when harnessed, can do a world of good for the society, just as the ferocity of electric current make almost everything get done at our homes and factories. The beauty of the Being is in His ability to create variety in a way that never repeats itself. I'll now onwards find time to catch up and enjoy all that I missed. Glad you liked it.

Re: Kabu

You used to recite this poem way back when you were a little girl at parties. I'm glad you saw a newer perspective in my interpretation, ma'am.

Exactly so, C C T, poetry and the thought processes that go behind writing them does have an integral relationship with the times and circumstances they lived in. Thank you

Aba Brother

This is a wonderful poem, and all the interpretations fit. It fits the ying and yang of nature poetically. The tiger and the lamb. However, what I really sense is that the ferocity, the zeal, the purpose, of the tiger doesn't necessarily have to be negative. I am also reminded of the quote about the lion lying down with the lamb. It would also fit a tiger. A Being capable of creating the placid lamb is also able to create the ferocious tiger; both sides of the same coin? Thank you, an inspiring and thought-provoking post, Aba dear brother. Hope you are catching up on a bit of rest.

I have always loved this poem, used to recite it as a young teenage girl at parties...yes my upbringing was very Victorian in some ways...

But this was a poem worthy being recited and I believe still that it was appreciated back when.

I also appreciate your take on the concept, using strength and power of the tiger to counteract the weak the timid the humble...

new ideas for me because I was taught that it is nature at the highest pinnacle. The weak the helpless the lamb, can only survive the hunt and being devoured by the great beast if they learn survival skills quickly, thus the strong survive to carry on the strong genes and the weak and the old don't hold back the herd.

Of course once these poems had a real meaning for the different classes . Probably awe for the lower class and a sense of superiority for the upper class who would be able to quote the project.
