Said The People
Fortune and fame is the road to glory
To obtain unfold your energy
Playing unethical games
In various different names.
Thus the conquest of life begins
Trying the whole world around you to spin
But when fuel vaporizes
For your success you learn the price.
Answers to success is not in people’s mouth
Nor from outside it can be brought
It lies in putting your efforts cards on table
By driving resources from inside and being simple.
Help! , I lost my mobile…
Geetha was on shopping spree with her husband
And he was struggling to meet her demands
He borrowed her mobile to talk to his friend
To ask whether his credit card he would lend.
He was walking on the street
Busy talking without seeing where
he is landing his feet
And fell into an open manhole
Making his wife’s face turn pale.
Geetha screamed for help
And a policeman near her stopped
She shouted, “I lost my mobile,
My husband fell while talking on it, into manhole! ”
The ever filled reservoir of the school teacher
Teachers in India like to impart knowledge
So their students can have an edge
Their Students are their pride
Whom they proudly remember when they retire.
Gopal was from a small town
Where he studied his childhood lessons
Now he had money, fame and fortune
And to show it to his teacher he returned.
To come along with him he requested his poor teacher
But teacher said it is not the rule of Mother Nature
He being here for many students like Gopal can show way
As water flows but the river stays! ”
The Evergreen Valentine’s Day
Gopal loved a girl in school
And around her he used to fool
But he was afraid to say
Like other boys and girls in someway.
Old days love was a crime next to murder
And for people in streets to speak it was fodder
Despite the threat of being whipped
Some stood tall declaring love.
By sending SMS Gopal committed the crime
Receiving the reply, “Sure”, his face brightened
like a thousand watt bulb
As he sent, “I like you very much”,
Glowing literally with ‘surya koti sama praba ‘, touch.
It’s tough to be in expensive shoes
Price of everything in India has gone up
And it doesn’t seems to drop
Vegetables, transport and other utilities
Which while having dinner poor Gopal’s wife was thinking.
Gopal used to have only rice and curds
Which in India is poor man’s bread
He had not tasted dal or vegetables for a long time
Although his children were complaining some times.
Gopal’s son said his friends could not eat with curds
As from childhood they were fed with rich food
Gopal’s wife with sympathy noted,
“I don’t know how people with money manage! ”
Nobody has it so good as you had
You grew seeing first rays of Sun
And evening in your friend home;
Children nowadays live in make-believe world
Where TV's and video games comes to fold.
When you were child only if ill, you were sulking indoor
Today children has more excuses to stay behind door
-homework, computer or television
And holidays for next academic year preparation.
The future citizen are not prepared to face present realities
Becoming child prodigies with IQ score more than 150
Who later burnout and become 'natural and ordinary'
While you grew and live enjoying seasons splendid colors.
Now it is ‘use and throw’ culture
And there is huge difference from the days of our Grandfather
Who owned wire-rimmed glasses and pen
Which could be proudly preserved till generations.
Things made today in our land
Doesn’t last even for a lifetime
Glasses meaning thin, fashionable contact lenses
Which could be used only till passing of that academic exams.
Gandhi said “means are more important then ends”
And through non-violence from British freedom for our country lent
But we now by making –“end is more important than means”,
Undoing the hard earned freedom’s good deeds!
Maintaining Peace with Ease
Both World ‘Hello Day' and 'Television Day’ falls on same day
Without both where we would be today
Gopal was trying hard to resolve conflict and confusion
After blaming for scheduling mishap on United Nation.
Gopal said hello on daily basis
And to watch television he always wished
World Hello Day was to be celebrated by greeting 10 people
By personally communicating to preserve peace.
He eased the pain of choosing between the two
By switching on the television in his house
And on November 21, watching 10 people saying ‘hello’
Celebrating both, and rule of preserving peace to follow!
