Johny realised how the things which go around come around...

But this world is not of children lying to their parents about eating sugar or candies.... They have definitely become smarter and tech savvy...!! ;) What say??





P.S. :- Again a (funny) attempt to write poems...!! :)
I had started writing this a long time back...the stanza of Johny's office has been taken from a mail I had received some time ago.... To complete the poem, I could not get to a perfect ending stanza.... At last I thought of this.... How was it??


The City that never DIES..!!!


The day started seeing the first page of the newspaper in Black..... Yes, it was on this day that the terrorists left a black mark on the history of this city... A mark at places that gave the city a distinct identity... A mark ... A terror in the minds and hearts of the city and the country..... Black was the colour to mourn for those who were the victims of the cruel act......

This day, last year had been a bit different for me and the event made it all the more unforgettable....!!

I had a holiday that day due to some thing.. I don't recollect what.... But just got to know it the night before... So we planned to go for a movie.... With the place and time finalised, I went to sleep. In the morning, when I woke up, my parents were still asleep. So I could not tell them about my plans for the movie... I left as usual for college.... First time I had been for a movie Bunking at home.......!!

While at the movie, my Papa was calling up repeatedly. At first, I did not receive the call. But since there were calls again and again , I finally received the call to know that Papa had just got me a new cell phone..!!!! Wow...It was really surprising and I was happy about it because I wanted to get a new model since a long time..... So today I am celebrating the first birthday of my cell too... :)

Apart from that, the day was normal until at night one of my friends messaged me to watch television..!! Somewhere I felt that it was not a coax message and at around 11, I started watching TV. What I saw was suddenly incomprehensible for a while... Was it true?? Was it happening in Mumbai???

NO.... I thought..this cant be it.. Mumbai ... Again on the hit list.......!!

I woke up my parents and asked them to watch it... (Everyone at my home, except me, sleeps early... even before 11).

We sat in front of the television swapping channels... hearing... seeing and feeling terror...!!! In a while.. the whole thing became clear.... Attacks by terrorists at some key locations in the city... It was not the first time I had witnessed terrorism yet this was something I felt was really cruel.. Really horrifying.... Really disturbing.......!!


The next 60 hours (and even weeks after that) had been full of reports and coverages. I did not watch many because the more I saw the more
it was horrifying to me and terrifying.. I felt mixed emotions of anger, fear, sympathy for those who suffered .... Just visualising could be so terrifying..then I really did not know how would it feel to lose someone in all this or be face to face with this..!!!


Today on the first Anniversary of this dreaded day... When people all over the country are marching for peace processions and lighting candles for those who have sacrificed their lives in this unmanly terror attack.. I wish that the world, the country , the city be more peaceful...the government more responsible... (not resigning when the state needs you the most)... The people more selective (electing those people as representatives who are worthy of bringing a change in the system) and the legal system (which punishes the accused and the victims on time and not carry out trials for years) ...

But Mumbai was, is and will be the City which Never Dies....

Salaam Mumbai for your Spirit..!!!!


The Act...!!!!



“You are my happiness… You bring joy to my life... Even thinking about you brings smile on my face…. I love you, would you marry me..??”


Saying this, he went down on his knees before Sheetal , held her hand and brought out a ring from his pocket.


“Perfect…!! ” snapped Sheetal. "I want the same expressions tomorrow on stage. It’s good to have an actor like you. No one can perform this as naturally as you can…”


“Hmm….”


“Be on time then. Bye.. ” she said hurriedly and left.


Left before Aman could say that he was not acting.



Wait....!!

I called up my brother last night to ask where he was, as he was late.. His cell was busy.. My call on waiting..

Tried again after 5 minutes... Again on waiting...!!

He called up after a while, "Could you not wait on the line? I was going to receive your call..!!"

Of course I had been waiting. Waiting for him to answer... And he asks me to wait more..!!!

WAIT.... one four letter word but definitely has wider presence..!!

We all wait for something or the other. Sometimes it is conscious waiting, sometimes we do not even realise we have been waiting..!! Right from the time we are born, yes even that minute is awaited by our parents, we keep on waiting and waiting and waiting......

For me, time does not seem to pass while waiting... I always end up looking at my watch just to find the hands moving at a snail like speed..!!!

Just a small....wait...not small...just a list of situations where I wait-

In the morning, wait for my eyes to open.....

I get ready and wait for the lift...

Wait for the bus, train..

Wait for the lectures to start and then wait for attendance and then wait for the lecture to end...!!

Wait to bunk...

Wait to talk to my friends about what I did yesterday...

Wait at the canteen to place my order..

Wait to get it...

Wait to get the book issued in library..

Wait to be back home...

Wait to have lunch made by mom.....

Wait to rest and catch up a book to read...!!

Wait for SMS'es to beep my cell up..!!

Wait to chat...

Wait to check my mails...(In short I have to wait for using my PC.... I wait because once I use it, I need it for a long time... so I wait to complete all other things before I switch it on..!! )

Wait to update my blog (I had been waiting for this time since a week..!!)

Wait to get the responses..

Wait for my exams to get over..

Wait for the results.....

Wait to hang out with friends...

Wait for vacations..

Wait for classes to begin again when the vacations are too long.....

Wait for wishing birthdays at the strike of midnight...

I guess you are waiting for this list to get over... ;)

Yeah..I am done with it 4 today...!!

P.S.: I actually wrote this while waiting for someone..!!! Did not know waiting could result in something so long till I started writing..!!!
