A Big Painting.

A big painting,

Was of a typewriter,

An ancient one,

It was sketched,

With oil pastels.

The big painting,

Adorned the wall of a house,

Where once typewriters,

Used to play an important role,

And the painting reminds the members of that household,

That the typewriter was a king once.



Whiff Of A Perfume Ehm…Errr Of A Sanitizer.

I passed a place,

Where many people go on a daily basis,

There was a whiff,

A strong one,

Of a perfume.

In these days,

Where people are having to wear a mask,

Who would load themselves with such a heavy perfume?

I came back home,

And sanitized my hands,

The smell of the sanitizer was same with that of the whiff of the perfume which had got.

Then I realized that whoever had sprinkled himself/ herself with perfume,

Might have sprayed or applied himself or herself with a sanitizer,

And not with a perfume.

With every passing day,

Sanitizers are evolving,

Soon they might be available in diamond flasks,

Which only people with tough dough would be able to buy.

And those sanitizers would be kept safe in bank lockers.

People are having a hard time managing their families.

And there are some people,

Having a bath with sanitizer.

That horrible smell makes one feel that not one but two or three masks should be worn for protection from that truly mind blowing smell.



Pitcher Full Of Water.

A pitcher full of water,

Started singing aloud to the water bottle,

“La, la,hm, hm, I am a pitcher,

Mighty and glorious,

I provide cool water to all,

If I drink it first,

I am there in every household,

Ha, ha, he, he,

Oh water bottle!

You are a tributary of my worthiness,

I am the great water containing pitcher,

Which gives lifeline to all,

Ha, ha, he, he, ho, ho,

Sing, sing, sing,

Feel the coolness with my bling.”

The water bottle heard the song patiently,

And lulled itself to sleep.

The pitcher kept on rocking and singing,

Till it got tired,

And went back to sleep.



Huge Jelly Cake.

Jim’s birthday was a few days back.

He had got a cricket bat,

And a pen as his birthday gift.

He was overjoyed with that.

As soon as he got his gifts,

Out he went to play with his friends,

In the midway,

His sister came calling,

And said that Ma was calling him.

Jim came home immediately and found another surprise waiting.

It was a school bag,

And it was given to him by his sister.

She was elder to him by eight years,

And was a doctor now.

Each year Jim would tease Lily( his sister),

That she was getting old,

And on each of his birthdays he would say -“Where is my gift?”

Lily would get emotional as she couldn’t buy him anything due to financial restraints.

But this year she had started earning more,

And by saving bit by bit,

She could buy him a new school bag.

Now upon getting his gift, he hugged hus sister tightly,

And there were nothing but tears falling from her eyes.

That day father came home early.

There was a big bag in his hand,

And everyone wanted to know,

What was in it.

He took out a cake box from the bag.

Jim opened the box,

And in it was a huge cake,

Which was made completely with jellies.

“Happy Birthday Jim” was written on the cake.

The cake was cut,

And everyone liked it a lot.

Jim and his family had a splendid time that whole day.




Boy And A Milkman.

A boy and a milkman,

Had gone there to buy bread,

Both of them bought a small packet of bread.

Outside the shop,

There was a tea stall,

And they ordered for tea and had it with the bread they had bought.

The milkman to the boy-“So, how are your days going?”.

The boy-” Fine and yours?”

The milkman-” Business is a bit slow.”

They kept on chatting like this when suddenly the milkman says -“From tomorrow onwards I will charge twenty rupees as delivery charge for every five days.”

The boy-“That’s very high.I will go and tell my mother right now.”.

The milkman-“What can I do? All the costs have gone up.”

The boy-“You can drink milk and be happy, why unnecesarily charge high rates to your customers?”

The milkman-“Is that so?”

And their conversation ended.

Luckily, the milkman didn’t increase the price,

Or his business would have gone kaput.
