My First Love ...

Here comes one more poem from me, let me know how you guys liked it ...

World was all mine
I had my own tasks to mind
Who thought life would change
And everything looked so strange

Its my shoes, Its my Toy
Every moment I just enjoy
It was all just so nice
Till i saw her little eyes

It all happened as a surprise
And I did not pay a single price
She was so cute and small
But her legs are really too tall

I wanted to speak a lot with her
When my mom is not very near
I may have to be very sure
As I always had a sense of fear

I first saw her with a white frock
I stood still, like a black rock
I saw her bathe in a bath tub
My heart just skipped one lub-dub

She has a very sharp nose
Loves to throw a stunning pose
I fell pray to that cute smile
Happiness flows in me like river nile

Will she like me, God only knows
I think she will, is what i suppose
No one in this world can oppose
A true love which is sure to arose

Its her thoughts, that always linger
It goes off when i hold her finger
Its her thoughts, that always pester
Don’t you know she is my little sister.?

Bangalore to Chennai ...

I am not a poet in any forms of definition, but I know I have that capability in me ;-). This is my first ever poem in English, so kindly read it and let me know how you guys like it. This poem actually talks the mood of a bachelor who travels from Bangalore to Chennai every weekend.

Its one more travelling weekend
My entire soul is weakened
I would say it’s due to hectic work
And all I get is a peanut perk...

Friday evenings are traffic choked
Reaching home is always lurked
Packing things with a sense of joy
The mood is same for a girl or boy

On to the streets to catch an auto
And you ought to wait, if you need to
When it starts to rain white and grey
All you can do is stand and pray

Long wait always makes you angry
Then I realize I am hungry
Rushed to a near by sagar chain
Search for an idly went in vain

You may be techie with lots of flair
But auto wala's just don’t care
Head or tail you want go
To get an auto you have to bow

Reached station which is @ 10 kilometer
By paying the auto one and a half meter
Felt a sense of achievement and pride
As I got an auto ride

Searched for a "corner" with my ipod shuffle
Then I realized, it’s meant for couple
That struck me the fact that I am still single
Bud do I have the mind to mingle?

Got a place amidst of logs
Well accompanied by few stray dogs
They look at me as their boss
Who would flick some biscuits to toss?

Sinking in my own thoughts
Ear phones singing “Know my hearts”
What is so great about a software guy?
When your family is not nearby

Rain has now stopped to a drizzle
There comes my train with a loud whistle
The station name is Cantonment
I have to search my compartment

One more weekend travel on the cards
I too travel like train guards
Only difference is, I don’t flag
Frequency of travel is what we lag

Thinking with a mood of pain
It looks like there is no more rain
Slowly crawled to my upper berth
Hoping to give a meaning to my birth

Trying to sleep and closed my eyes
A chill wind, cuts me like an ice
Windows are shut and it’s warm and nice
There comes Chennai, as time flies...

Its GOLD ... At Last ...

It’s GOLD at last. The shame of the entire nation for not getting an individual GOLD medal at the Olympics came to an end after nearly 88 years. This is the first time an INDIAN had won gold and it’s certainly a remarkable feat. Let stop worshipping sachin's and dravid's and ganguly's for one time, here we have a true hero who has really made the nation proud. He came from no where and conquered the world. I just happened to see the recorded version of that shooting sport and I was jumping in JOY after Abhinav Bindra hit the last bullet right on the bull’s eye ...
Bindra was fourth after qualifying but had a brilliant final round and even hit a near perfect 10.8 on his last visit to pull in front of Henri Hakkinen of Finland, who dropped to bronze with a poor final shot of 9.7. That allowed China's Zhu Qinan, the defending Olympic champion and heavy favourite, to pass him on his final shot and win the silver medal. "It's just great," Bindra said just before climbing on to the podium. There were no false tears, no hungama, Bindra was a package of composure. He stood silent and just bowed his head to receive the medal. I would say, he just did not get the wine flow into his head.

His speech after wining the medal was so humble and he showed no signs of excitement, he added that "it was his day" and on a given day anybody could have won the gold, how humble one can be. He has not only made the entire nation proud by winning gold, but at the same time, he has made the entire nation to turn towards a game called "shooting", which to date was referred as something that deals with "cinema's", what to do our people or so negligently innocent. Hats off to that young man and our entire nation salute his achievement.

On the other hand just our one and only "media-hyped" tennis player "Sania Mirsa" has bowed out of the singles tournament owing to some injury, actually it does not make a big difference, anyways she would have comfortable lost in that match to that un-seeded chezh player after the score read "1-6" in the first set, it was all Sania's cooked up drama and she acted as if she is withdrawing from the tournament due to injury, and what she failed to read is, INDIAN's are not that stupid to believe that. Well, she is one non-sense sports women of our country who has been badly pampered by the media.

Anyways, INDIA's flood gates to capture more GOLD’s have been opened, and it's up to the other personalities to climb the podium and make all of us proud. Chak de India!!!

Please try again later ...

Its an usual Monday morning Vineeth has to rush to office, but his shuttle had some issues and hence it refused to start, he had an important meeting that day and he gotta rush. He immediately radioed his wife Sindhu who was already on her way to work in her shuttle, she was too busy in driving and hence she ignored that radio signal. Vineeth was scratching his head not knowing what to do, and fortunately his neighbor who works in a near by station was starting his capsule, Vineeth bounced on it and requested for a drive, but his neighbor told him that his capsule does not have enough oxygen and hence it could not support two people, he pressed the oxygen level button which was on his top and it read as LOW, Vineeth has no other option other than using his back belt mini rocket to go to his work, with the prices of rocket fuel touching almost 12000 stars per gallon, he had to use that ...

After reaching her station Sindhu radioed Vineeth and she got an automatic response where a robot will say what Vineeth is doing at that time, it said Vineeth is busy in the lab experimenting on the new species which he needs to release by this weekend. Sindhu too was busy with her research of discovering a new medicine which will postpone death. Vineeth got immersed in his work and by noon he started to feel hungry, he immediately pressed the "food load limit" button which was just above his right forehead and the indicator level showed "Empty", he knew that the backup time is just 20 minutes, so he opened his wallet and took out the "Heavy Dose" food tablet and then swallowed it, he can be rest assured for another 3 weeks that he wont feel hungry. He radioed Sindhu once again and passed on the signals saying that she needs to get more "Food Tablets" as the stock level is very low.

Both Vineeth and Sindhu came back from work by 11 in the night and Sindhu slipped into her night dress where the Oxygen mask is permanently fitted, which she feels is comfortable. She radioed Vineeth saying they need to go to the baby bazaar to pick a baby of their own, Vineeth too responded back saying that he is yet to prepare the final plan of the baby they wanted and it will be done by that year end, and also he added that he checked with the bazaar owner about the specification he had in mind and those kinds of babies are not readily available in the market and hence he need to order for a special cloning. Sindhu said she cannot afford more than 1000000 stars for a baby as they don’t have enough budget to do that. Vineeth said he will take care of the budget and in another 3 or 4 light years they would be having a baby. Vineeth sent a kiss radio signal to Sindhu which she gracefully accepted.

The next day morning both of them got up when the global broadcasting system warned of a probably alien attack on them, and it asked all the residents to be safe in their respective capsules, and also it said that these aliens would suck all the oxygen and leave them dry, so they asked all the residents to protect their "Oxygen Outlets". Sindhu and Vineeth activated the "Mixed-Air Compressor" which would circulate the oxygen inside the mask and eject poisonous "Petroxin". As announced the aliens stormed their area and due to the emission of "Petroxin" most of the aliens died. The city administration then pressed the "Automatic Evaporating Machine" and then turned all those died aliens into vapor. These kinds of attacks are a common site in their area, so Vineeth and Sindhu were quite used to it.

Vineeth was asked to go abroad for an important conference and after hearing that news he signaled Sindhu saying that he wont be back to home today as he is leaving abroad, Sindhu radioed back to him and asked him to take his "Gas Protection Mask" if in case his capsule's protection layer gets damaged by a possible alien attack. Vineeth could not get back home to collect that jacket so he sent his clone and ordered him via his "Brain Sensors" to get the mask for him. Sindhu knows that it will take at least 10 light years for Vineeth to come back, but as always there is this miniature "Time Machine" which would take her to him anytime she want to. Vineeth set his "Navigation System" to his destination and then decided to take a quick nap, before that he checked his "Heart Disk" to see when was the last time he slept, and it was somewhere 12 light years ago, so he decided to take a small nap as this journey would take a minimum of 3 light years.

Sindhu in the mean time achieved a rare feat in her research where she just discovered the formula to extend the current life span of 300 light years to 500 light years, this is one important discovery for which the entire universe was waiting for, she thoroughly tested that formula by feeding it to an two legged species which is almost rare to see at this era and the life span of that species seem to have increased. The entire lab was proud of sindhu and her boss gifted her by presenting her a new capsule which would go at a speed of 5000 photo neuron. Sindhu immediately radioed Vineeth and he got that signal while he was half the way to his destination, Vineeth was very proud of his wife and he signaled her back with a "Virtual Hug and Kiss".

When Vineeth was away Sindhu got a call from the baby vendor saying that they have successfully cloned their child and its ready to be delivered, Sindhu was doubly thrilled and she cross verified the specification with hers. It had 4 eyes (two in the front and two in the back), 1 Heavy duty micro sensitive ear on the top, 16 remote sensored wheels which can go in any direction, and one 360 degree rotating head, 4 robotic arms with 4 fingers in each hand and a stomach which can hold 5 quintal of goods, and the expiry date was crimped as 8088 which is 5000 light years away. There was a small mis match in the color but she was ok with it, she passed on an URGENT radio signal to Vineeth and sent him the news of the arrival of their baby and Vineeth radioed her and expressed his happiness and told her that he will be back in another 1 light year time to see the baby.

Sindhu tried calling her parents to pass on this good news, but all she got was an automatic recorded voice of a robot saying "All lines in this route are currently busy, Please try again later", she told herself that "Nowadays all the lines in MARS are so choked and getting a call connected to EARTH has become very difficult"

My Fair Lady ...

It was the time where I thronged for love, when everyone of my age was having a companion; I was the one who does not have one. I don’t want to be so desperate to catch one for the heck of it, so I waited for my day to come and as you all know, our sincere prayers will always be answered and I too found an angel who was so down to earth, and she just stole my little heart on the first sight. On seeing her, I felt some kind of closeness between us and it sounded as if we both know each other for a long time, no wonder she is "My Fair Lady" ...

It started with occasional chats and later it became a frequent gossip's. It was almost like confessing each and every incident that happened for the day as if I that would cleanse my soul. She as ever would be a silent listener and would stop me for any clarifications that she wanted to know. I used to admire her sharp eyes and the power of concentration she has while I talk to her. I learned the art of talking to the opponent by looking straight into their eyes; take it from me, that's the most difficult thing to do. You need some amount of braveness to see straight into their eyes talk. It leaves you with no option other than confessing the truth. Her eyes had that power.

It was one rainy evening and she surprisingly called me up and asked me if we can go out for a walk. The weather was simply awesome with droplets of water floating in the air and hitting on your face with some amount of chillness. We both started to walk on a curvy road which has gulmohar trees standing erect on both side of the road. She only told me that they are "Gulmohar" trees and I told her that the term "Gulmohar" always remains me my school days as I used to have my English book which carries the print "Gulmohar Publications", she nodded her head as if she second my thought. She knows everything about me and I never dare to know anything about her. I thought this is the day for me to get to know many things about her.

We stopped by a mobile "ground nut" vendor who was selling boiled "ground nuts", before me taking my wallet out, she bought 2 cones worth Rs 5/ each. She told me that she like this very much and I was quick to raise my hand to say "Me too". This is what chemistry is all about, said my little brain. I cleared my throat and then started, "So where did you do your schooling", she said that she had never been to school. I asked her "Why?" she said "Her dad has no money to send her to school". I thought to myself, how sad this female is, for the level of concentration she has, if she would have done her schooling, she would now be a big shot in some of the big corporate in India.

I asked her how she is managing things all alone without having a proper education. She told me that "Life gives you better experience, than your school books", how true it is, no university is bigger than this "world". She started to tell me how painful was her childhood and how many days she would have starved to get one square meal for a day. Her dad used to be a drunkard and never had a proper income, her mom became the bread winner of the family and she too could not fight against the deadly beast called "hunger" and succumbed to its fiery tongue. I could see her eye lids getting wet when she narrated that story. I told to myself that I am going to take care of her and would give her a royal life which she missed during her childhood.

I wonder how she could have spent her teenage without dad and mom, as if she read my mind, she continued saying, It was hell on earth for a girl to live in this society without any proper protection, she told me the incident where she was embarrassed to the core in a pharmacy when she went all alone to by herself a pack of napkins. I felt that women are still vulnerable in this society and this is something which cannot be changed. I know from now on she does not need to worry about anything, as I will always be there with her to support all her needs. I too felt that it’s my duty to support her. We both felt that we are getting closer to each other, and I could see her eyes thronging for love and affection.

It started to become dark and also dark clouds seem to threaten us, so we decided to go home. While walking back, I decided to tell my feelings to her and was ready to digest any response she would give for that, I don’t know if it’s too early to break the nut, but I could not keep that any more with me, as I am so used to confessing everything to her. I carefully coined my words and repeated that to myself three times but somehow I could not speak by looking into her eyes. She could have read my mind it seems, so she asked me "Hmm, who is that girl", once again I could not believe how can some one read my mind so well, but at the same time I told myself that, if my MOM cannot read me better, who else can, certainly she is "My Fair Lady"
