As A Daughter Who serves

And A Wife Who Nurtures

As A Mother Who Bears

And A Sister Who Shares

Or A Friend Who Cares

 AlimaApekshaPortrait

Clothed In Dignity And Strength

Endurance And Tolerance In Length

Patience And Perseverance In Clock

Compassion And Indulgence A Rock

 

Putting Love Into Hugs And Kisses

Kindness Into Actions Not To Miss

A Picture Of Poise And Lace

A Lady Of Calm And Grace

 

Many A Good Women

We Know Them

May We Be Them

May We Raise Them

And May We Celebrate Them!

Ode To A Lady

Yonder And Beyond

Memories Far Bond

From Childhood To Adult

Remembrances Exult.

She Cuddles And Snuggles

Brings Chocolate And Chuckles

Walked Me To School

With Annoyance And Rule.

A Woman She Became

With Fire And Flame

A Daughter And A Sister

Pseudo Doctor Is A Twister.

A Wife And A Friend

A Confidant To Depend

Endurance Is Thy Name

Patience Is Her Aim.

Unjust Is Life

Sadness Is Rife

Sparkles But In Eye

Zeal And Zest So High.

Fulfillment Is Every Step

Conquers World In Hep

Ming Dynasty Her Claim

Experiments All To Shame

Abundance Of Love

Fills Heart As A Glove

Words Fall Short

Holds She The Court.

Elegant And Noble

Lady Of The Global

Footprints She Leaves

Family She Believes.

Dedicated to Aravinda Makineni – An amazing and classy lady who charms her way into hearts, and I’ve the honor of being related to her – a force to reckon and an inspiration to all.

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,500 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 58 trips to carry that many people.

RAIN!

Pitter-patter it falls

Creek ‘n river crawls

Thru rocks it follows

Quenching all hollows

Powerful and vigorous

Leasing life rigorous…

Thunder in the clouds

Lightening in shrouds

Raging in birth

Venting on earth

Danger it stages

Dark ‘n gray it wages…

Rainbow in the eye

Hope brightens the sky

Fury takes a rest

Calm settles in jest

Breath takes a cue

Settles in daily queue.

As I battle a nasty cold, a poem that I had rendered during my middle school days came to mind, not that I had ever forgotten about it. I had to do some research on the internet to get to this particular poem…..had so many fond memories of recitals, competitions, winnings and best of all, my friends from yester-years still remember this….tickles me pink :D.

Thought I would share this here……a part of my early life…

The Common Cold, the Common Cold
The doctors really must be told
It’s really time that they controlled
The horrors of the Common Cold.
I love the doctors – they are dears;
But must they spend such years and years
Investigating such a lot
Of illnesses which no one’s got.
When everybody, young and old
Is frantic with the Common Cold
And I will eat my only hat
If they know anything of that
Mark with what long and patient care
The doctor studies what is rare
He cannot do too much for you
If you have something strange and new.
Nor can he quite conceal his bliss
If it should chance to end in ‘is’.
Moreover, if the thing’s obscure
He may be slow but he is sure
He knows the perfect pill or paint
For every tropical complaint
Which is not likely to occur
In Battersea or Westminster
But there are fortunately few
Who suffer from the strange and new.
I do not know a single case
Of Indian Itch or Persian Face.
Nor do I think that I have met
A man with sleeping sickness yet.
But all of us have one disease —
We all sniff, snuffle, cough and sneeze.
The Common Cold. The Common Cold!
If all the populace was polled
A large majority I’m told
Would register the Common Cold.
This is the universal plague
And here I find the doctor vague.
To poly-this and poly-that
He plays a straight and pretty bat
But when it is the Common Cold
The man is absolutely bowled.
And you would think that Harley Street
Would be ashamed of this defeat.
You’d think, I say, that here and now
The Street would vow a holy vow —
“Whatever any doctor’s at
We will desist from doing that
No more inquire the cause of twins
And stop inventing Vitamins.
And drawing teeth and drawing fees
Till we have done for this disease.
“We will not sleep, we will not eat
Nor shave the face nor wash the feet
Nor shall our boots be heeled and soled
Till we have killed the Common Cold.”
But if, in fact, you chance to meet
A specialist on Harley Street
And say to him “Look here. Behold!
I have – again — the Common Cold.”
The gentleman will only stare.
He really does not seem to care.
He then remarks, without remorse
“Oh, Well, the thing must take its course.”
But I reply with frank chagrin
“Why must the blasted thing BEGIN?”
