We are simply at the mercy of our destiny.

Sad and frightening stories, pictures and videos from Uttarakhand flood disaster are depressing. Happy moments can turn into sorrow in a fraction of a second.
A person is not safe anywhere these days. We are simply at the mercy of our destiny. All that we can do is pray and not take risks.

I love to live amidst trees and plants.

Here is something lovely,
That can’t be bought instantly.
A shade tree for your family!
With such a large canopy!
It is ‘Madhavi Lata Creeper’,
Shining in finest green colour,
With bunches of white flowers!
Which emanate fragrance 24-hours!

A pleasant rainy evening, calls for special snacking!

A pleasant rainy evening,
Calls for special snacking!
Indian, Continental or Chinese,
Anything would please!
The spicier and hotter,
Are always preferred.
What better than,
The Mirchi Bajji etc...South Indian!

Shame on your authority, that stinks of timidity.

Shame on your authority,
That stinks of timidity.
None of you have guts,
To face the truth and us!

Our obvious deprivation,
Leads to our desperation,
And all means of struggle,
That will go on until your downfall.

We are defeating you,
In every possible way,
Yet shameless you continue,
To survive in a miserable way.

Finally, the voice of the people!
History tells us is the voice of God!
Soon we will be victorious!
And free of you; so notorious.
