Musical Wedding Bells

(Image Source:

Musical wedding bells,
Melodious beginning,
Made for each other.

Made for each other,
Dreams sparkle in misty smiles,
Love and Trust unite.

Love and Trust unite,
Promises adorn their world,
Musical wedding bells.

There Is A Child In Every One Of Us

There is a child
In every one of us
That leaps ahead in joy
Holding slender fingers
Of molten adulthood
Playing with the stars
Smiling at the sun
Eyes of mischief
So innocent, so pure
Tugging at my sleeves
The child calls my name
Embracing me with love
In its sweet soft world.

A Man Who Was Rather A Nut

A man who was rather a nut,
Cried aloud with a minor cut,
The Doctor came,
Found the injury lame.
Disgusted, he roared, "Keep your mouth shut."

World Of Web

(Image Source:

It's a webby webby world
And we dangle on nets
Carved by magical spiders
A whole new horizon unfurled.


Yahoo! It was the time to rejoice
As Messengers hit our desks
Chatting without meeting up with pals
A perfect gateway to laziness.


Labor no more, the answers are here
Promised Google and Wikipedia
Whatever be your query
The solution will be there.


Our societies neatly placed
We rule the farms and villes
Sharing albums now ever so easy
Facebook, you will be praised.


Gmail and Gtalk, the world brought near
Flipkart and Ebay, now the local shopping centers
I rest on the keys, as the monitor speaks my fonts
Here, listen, it's a webby webby world, dear!!!

Selfish society,
Superstitions rule the roost,
Degrading honor.

Her naked soul burns.

On pyre of false blemishes,
She, stained as a witch.

The Book of Potions lay bare, surrendering itself to her unmasked desires, now probably on the verge of accomplishment.

"This is perfect," she thought, proudly surveying the violet concoction that she produced from the combination of viola, blue berries and powdered herbs, each of the ingredients added to the solution in a perfect ratio.

The Skull of Wisdom stared at her blankly, witnessing sadly the misuse of an art that was once considered sacred, but now re-christened as dark, falling prey to the greed and hunger of so many witches and wizards over the year.

Purple desired his touch, the softness of her skin rustling against his hairy chest, their lips consuming the fire burning in her soul; but alas, he was happily married and in love with his wife, ignoring the subtle advances that Purple made towards him, hurting her deeply, in turn forcing her to find an alternative solution to have her way with him.

"Tonight," she laughed, "he shall drink this potion of lust, and then, he will be my toy."

A Vacation

The space travelers
Riding yellow tricycles
Calm and composed
The wings steady
As they clutch their cameras tight
A few feathers fly
Here and there
But smart they were too
The feathers didn't distract the frame.

They know the art
The space travelers
Riding yellow tricycles
Through the asteroid belt
Punching the interfering rocks
And debris that play naughty
The GPS map correct
Destination Earth
Now in sight.

Rattle in their nerves
Hearts race excited
A much promised vacation
Welcoming them warmly
The space travelers
Riding yellow tricycles
Pedals rotating faster
Prepare to descend
On this new land.

A New Order Of The Ages

Novus Ordo Seclorum
A New Order of the Ages
The Great Seal Mystified
By one Mr. Brown
Is this
A Call for Enlightenment
Guided by the rift
Between Angels and Demons
Annuit Coeptis
Magical Eye nods
The Illuminati smiles in disguise
Reveling in its secrecy
An identity covered by theories
The motto of Freemasonry
Debatable at times
Intriguing, always
Icebergs beneath the surface
Open to interpretations myriad
Choose the one that suits you
Imagination is not a sin
Neither a curse.

A Lady Would Frequently Pose

A lady would frequently pose
With arrogance in her long nose.
Tired of this habit
Her guy said Stop it!
Else your best friend will get my rose.

Durga Puja Begins

It's that time of the year again .... the most awaited Durga Puja. Beautiful deities are created by skilled craftsmen and enormous pandals erected. People wear new clothes and go out, hopping from one pandal to another, enjoying the full colors of this festival.

This is that one time of the year when Kolkata stays awake 24x7, energetic and brimming with enthusiasm.

This is that time of the year when you wake up to the music of dhaak, the powerful rhythm filling your heart with joy of devotion.

And yes, this is that time of the year when you can proudly say you reside in Kolkata, witnessing the full grandeur of the Goddess.

Durga Puja celebrates the victory of Maa (Mother) Durga, symbolizing goodness, over the evil demon Mahishasur.

This is a 10 day festival. On the final day, the deities of Goddess Durga and her four children (Lakshmi, Saraswati, Ganesha and Kartikeya) are immersed in the sacred Ganges. Soon after, the wait and preparation for the next year's Puja begins. This year, the 10th day would be 24th of October.

Here are a few clicks taken from my camera during last night's tour of pandals.

All of a sudden, my camera stopped working. That was sad. However, my cell phone saved the day with its 5 MP camera. Below are the pics from my cell phone.

A Very Happy Durga Puja to all my blogging friends. Enjoy and have fun :-)
