Assorted Random Semi-Verses


Memories

Isn't every memory a magic?
Making you lose the sense of time.
Which is so much beyond the realm of logic.
Though sometimes they are mere illusions
But they keep coming back to you,
And make you feel nostalgic!
___

The Dark Side

With every talent comes a curse,
From every gift speaks a caveat aloud,
Even the beautiful moon has a dark side,
And every silver lining has a cloud!

___

The Race

Somewhere in this race,
Some time during the run,
I lost myself in between,
And forgot to have fun.
____

I write ...

I sometimes write random words,
Which hardly make any sense;
But I just felt that you should know,
That in some corner of this little world,
I do have a little presence!

Words fail me.

They can help to see the most beautiful,

Everything about everything, they tell me.

But when I need them them the most,

Without fail, words fail me.

Sometimes I write ...

Sometimes I write -

Those wordless poems,

That don't rhyme.

Those story-less stories,

That make no sense.

These idiotic blog posts,

That serve no purpose.

Just that sometimes,

I think that I should,

Let the world know,

That I exist.

I have my own little song

I have my own little song,

I play it with my heart.

I am the king of the world when it is with me,

For it makes me feel like the great Mozart.

The story theory

Every two people have some story linking them. Their story can be explained by the equation:


Story = S * p(1)*p(2)/ r^2,

where

S = story coefficient,

p(i) = expressed traits of person i, and

r = similarity coefficient between persons (value range = 0-1)

Above are qualitative parameters.




(PS - Please don't beat me up for this)

Dreams, dreams go away

(warning - seems that i have been bitten by the attempt to poetry bug!)


Dreams, dreams go away,

Because the people say,

I may become prisoner of thee,

If you prolong your stay.

The parrot

"You shall have your freedom",
Said the generous master,
As he opened the cage.

The parrot was delighted,
As he suppressed his joy,
And controlled his rage,

For so long he had wished,
To be free and be
Up in the sky.

At last his chance had come,
And towards his destiny,
He shall fly.

And then the realization dawned,
That his wings were clipped,
How shall now he even try?

Happy New Year

Ten years ago, somewhere around this time I was preparing for the biggest thing in my life. That was the make or break thing for me. HSC, they said was the biggest thing in life, or at least so it seemed. For me (and probably many others) it was the end of the world. Probably most of us didn't have a clarity of what we wanted in life (and many of us are still clueless!) but we nevertheless marched ahead in the pursuit of our destiny,

Little did I know that it was just the starting point of the "challenges" to follow. From the cocooned shelter, it was now a wild ocean out there - sometimes calm and often turbulent. Maybe, a lot many of us are still afloat, not without our fair share of bruises and injuries though!

I often wonder, what was the difference between me then and now ?

Some might say, there a sea change in everything about me. Some would vouch for the fact that I haven't changed for good, while probably a lot many others would say, I am as useless and hopeless as ever!

(Of course, to my defense I would also say that I am not that useless, hopeless and all that stuff!)

But maybe, my perspective of looking at things has changed. I look at me then and I see a young, idealistic and dreamy teenager who in a few years transformed into a young (some still think so!) adult who still has some dreams, but with a generous dose of cynicism and caution and maybe, a bit more or pragmatism.

Dreams have given way to reality; few dreams are now a reality and so many others are a reality in probably some parallel universe!

But I guess it is somewhat similar for almost everybody.

Ten years ago we had probably no idea what would "today" be like. Maybe, any prediction on what will be there ten years from now is probably futile.

As the saying goes, "This too shall pass ..."

How ? ...

Dekhte hain, mujhe bhi nahi pata :)

Wish you a happy new year 2011 !!!
