All Fools' day

All Fools' day

April 1st- brings back those nostalgic memories of school days -- ink splash on uniform, AF carved on potatoes to be used as stamps, silly pranks like , "yeh look there is a snake, there is a lizard" . Once you become a victim of a prank you are very sad, but very happy when someone is made a victim of your pranks. Gone are those days when we were not able to take sportively the thought of being fooled even for fun . As children we were very happy to play fool on others not knowing what thrown up then will come back later . Now as adults we are being fooled in so many ways and by so many people-- so called politicians, bureaucratic authorities,business men, religious gurus,educators,scientists, media, relatives, neighbours, friends, terrorists, doctors, engineers, name any profession , there are always the black sheep sitting there to fool us . No more do we get angry by being fooled. We have learnt to take it in our stride. Anywhere we turn we are being taught to have positive thinking and spread positive vibrations. So, we have become quite tolerant now, be it with religious gurus or terrorists. Yes April 1st is not the only Fool's day there are 364 days more to celebrate fool's day.....

For Ever....

Sweet or bitter
words that fall
off from one's mouth,
The food
one's mouth enjoys 
and the lovable soul
who served it
stay in memory
for ever and ever....


The guiding star in my life,
The evening star of my dreams!!
You named me even before I took shape!!
When you bore me inside
You ate for my hunger!!
After I was born ,
You starved because of the hungry ME!!

Will there be a compensation for
those countless sleepless nights you spent on me?
Though  I sleep on a bed of roses
Will I ever get back the peaceful sleep
When I slept in your water bed??
Thousands songs in my mobile
Nothing soothes my heart other than your sweet lullaby!!

Never were you given the chance
To deliver the artist in you nor the writer in you!!
Though not recognized for the human in you
never did you cease from loving anyone!!
For all those things you feared in life
You brought us up like fearless cubs!!
Mother of two princess but
have not till date heard your wish for a prince!!

You stand high in my thoughts and actions,
After I  took your role as a mom!!
Will my children ever think
They are gifted as I am
to be blessed with the best mom?

The me in you
and the you in me
will always be our everlasting blessing!
You will be my guardian angel not till we live in this earth
But for ever and ever and ever till this Universe exists!!!!
