Mr Singh,

We salute your spirit and your valour… Well done !

You have made the nation proud

You have assaulted the shrewdest of shrewd

You have slapped the epitome of corruption

You have attacked “the cancer” in the national administration

It was a bit mild, we would have preferred something more…

But keep it up, you inspire us; ignite our souls; motivate us to get rid of such systemic garbage

Kudos to you; May there be many more like you!

Inquililab Jindabad,


A poet friend of mine..

A poet friend of mine, once told us this line

That poetry might be an Art for the masses

but in reality, its a Science without any classes

It involves some steps really few,  to change one song into a poetry new

You translate a Hindi song into English fair and square,

then add some new words here and there

And lo my friend, your poetry is almost  ready,

but don’t forget to apply the Tadka – slow and steady.


So we decided to put his methodology to test.  We chose a song from the movie Kites which goes like:

Zindagi… Do pal ki…

Intazaaaaaar kab tak hum karenge bhalaaa…

Tumhe pyaaaar kab tak na karenge bhalaaaaaa…


Which on applying the transformation becomes :

Those 2 minutes of my life

oh my girlfriend, my love, my wife

Patience is a indeed a virtue which i soon plan to get

But tell me when you want me to love you

And you will find me next to you all set, set, set

Oops!! And that’s when we realized that Science may be awesome, but its not applicable so easily  (read decently) everywhere 🙂
