Cuckoo….. “Here is the morning,

Let it be cock a doodle doo.

Wake up its nine in the morning,

Get into the kitchen and prepare the breakfast.

Don’t miss it or the disease named acidity will eat you up.

Ah! The food is ready,

Cold cream on bread with some sugar on it.

That’s what I want but,

I ain’t a human,

So like the rest of my lot,

Maybe one day God will bless us to be humans and for me it will be a day,

Which I shall forget not.

Cuckoo ………..

Please come with some dry beans or dried peas,

I will be happy with it.

I know you will……..”



The Holidays.

The holidays were such a time when we all cherished each and every moment of it. The holidays meant breaking free from the rigidity of daily life. The fun in packing bags and suitcases is a bit tedious but the true fun lies in slinging on the bag pack and getting ready for the journey. Getting onto a train, making the berth for sleeping is another fun which my father used to do for me. Once or twice I have made a crumpled berth for sleeping. Waking up early in the train, watching the green fields and having omelettes from the train pantry is fun beyond words. At home many of us make faces and say-“Omelettes. Can’t we have macaroni and cheese?”  But there is no greater fun than having omelette with bread, a chunk of butter and cold water.”

Flight journeys were a rare privilege which once in two years we could afford. The best part of holidays were of visiting my maternal grandmother. Those days were golden. She was a ball of pure love.

Such were my beautiful holidays.

We just simply miss them.

Be happy and have holidays. Hope that very soon we too shall have one and more than one.



Sleepy Day.

It’s a delightful day as it is Sunday. You can wake up late like a lazy person and pretend to be asleep even when you have woken up.

Then comes the aspect of having your bath which all generally avoid till the end of the day or they don’t take their bath at all.

Everything seems to go slow on this day and the aspect of preparing or making food is a sensitive issue on this day and folks now a days order breakfast, lunch and dinner from food apps.

The next day morning the results of the digestion of the restaurant food comes out. If its all clear then you can go to your college or office, otherwise a visit to the doctor might be necessary which may include a day’s rest at home.

It’s a day when people basically chill and act as robots and if they are in their “good senses”, then they go to the movies in the evening.

It’s the day which we all wait for throughout the week and when it arrives we spend it sleeping it off.

Sleepy day

Have a nice Sunday as it is a sleepy day.
