Wooing My Unknown Lover

I would walk a hundred miles,
Just to see you smile.
A hundred more I shall walk,
Just to hear you talk.

When I heard you talk today,
You brightened up my lousy day.
Your face radiates a glow,
Brighter than an angels halo.

With honey kissed lips,
And sultry hips.
With dovey eyes,
You enchant us poor guys.

Now I know what you mean to us simple guys,
When I look into your lovely eyes.
Then I see You walk the ramp,
I feel that I am but a tramp.

I may not be able to sing you a ballad,
Atleast I can make you your favourite salad.
I may not be able to act,
But I love you, that is a fact.

I may not have the looks,
But I can cook.
I may not have the money,
But atleast I am funny.

If u see me stand and blush,
It’s because, You are my only crush.
When I read your every tweet,
My heart always skips a beat.

Now I wake up from my dream,
And I can only but scream.
I wish I could hold your hand,
And dance, an endless dance to Neverland.



Ode to my Lost Love

As the rain drops patter,
I miss her endless chatter.
I look into the gloom,
Remembering when our love began to bloom.

Through the fog, through the mist,
Her beautiful smile i could not resist.
The memory of our wonderful year,
Rolls down in a single tear.

I hear the rolling thunder,
And I begin to wonder.
Was what i did a blunder?
Which tore our love asunder.

Here i sit all alone,
In what was to be our happy home.
Wishing you was here today,
With me Misty, on this misty day.

Lost Love

Vada for Rs.14


Today i was shocked to see that the price for a thing as small as a vada had gone up to 14 rupees. It got me thinking as to who this seems to happen in Bangalore. It seems to me that the hoteliers in Bangalore seem to be taking advantage of the chalta hai attitude of the ordinary Bangalorean. Had this happened in any other state, for eg Kerala then I’m sure this wouldn’t have been allowed. There would’ve been a mass scale protest which would’ve ultimately led the prices being lowered. The same thing seems to have been happening with the autos in Bangalore.

At first it would take some time to take to recover from the shock to see an auto driver brazenly quoting a price which he deems fit for travel to a particular location. Now it seems to have been engrained into the blood stream of the ordinary Bangalorean to reason with the auto driver, without battling an eyelid. Cause it seems second nature to us now.

If we were a species under study from a higher power, then I’m sure we would be declared as mutants, because our ability to adapt to external stimuli such as unwarranted price rise, greedy auto drivers seems almost godlike.

We are Bangaloreans, but its high time we bring back the bang into the Bangalorean.
