Adhoori Kavita

I came up with the first stanza of this poem over 20 years ago, but have never been able to finish it. I'm posting it online here in the hope that inspiration may strike me again and allow me to finish it. Or someone who is lost on the internet and stumbles upon my blog and this note may be able to help me finish it!

Note that it's part Hindi and part English - Hinglish, if you will!

Here goes:

Adhoori Kavita
Hum Ne Jab Dil Diya ...

Maloom tha ki aage Uphill Task hai
Pyar karna Skill aur Strong Will ki baat hai
Pyar mein Success Thrill hai,
To Failure ek Bitter Pill hai

Phir Bhi Humne Dil Diya ...
...
???

------
Help!

It's a slow economy- Let's talk about handshakes & picking up chicks

You know it's a rough economy when Guy Kawasaki is tweeting about picking up chicks and TechCrunch is blogging about handshakes & social etiquette and beating up dead horses.

But shouldn't these guys be talking about my friend's company that just got funded to do DNA computation in the cloud - or something like that?

My Experience (a kid's poem)

Here's a poem I wrote when I was in 8th grade in school

My Experience

Once upon a time, I had a little donkey
Whom I very lovingly, used to call Pinky
But in fact, he was very brown
And making a fine pair, I looked like a clown

Whatever we looked like, that does not matter
My story begins, as I grew fatter
Allow me to tell you, for your information
At that time, was I, a very poor washerman

One day, on Pinky, I loaded a huge clothes bunch
And on the top I settled, with my heavy paunch
Due to the mighty weight, his bones crunched
And the next minute, into the air I was launched

As I fell on earth, I started groans and moans
Nevertheless, the next thing I did was to check my bones
My limbs ached, and I felt very sick
Later on, I learned that the cause was Pinky's kick

After that experience so dim
I decided to become slim
And hence I advise you, never to become plump
For you too, as me, may receive many a bump!
