an elegy on the death of a dear bird’s child

April 29, 2009

This story is both a happy and a sad account of my interaction with a bird (yes!) that lost her child a few months back.

This bird used to chirp and pitter-patter outside my room. It gazed into my window and took curious notice of its own reflection (in what is a reflective-on-the-outside glass pane) and beat its beak upon the glass.

The Sky :)

April 24, 2009


I love gazing deep into the sky at nights : ) 

Was wondering what would I have to say to a person who asks me why do I love the sky… so here is my four line (that’s really little : )) extempore dedication…and affirmation. It’s a simple, single thought; dun expect much.

It is that “Jack Rabbit Slims” restaurant scene from the movie ‘Pulp Fiction’ (direction and script by Quentin Tarantino, of Pulp Fiction fame ;)) Everything looks good about the scene though there is nothing compelling here that makes the actors stand out or anything that takes the story forward. Very well written.

As of acting, I like the way Mia says, “Why would you?” (at time 1:48 in this video) and I also (more…)

On Her Beauty..

April 14, 2009

This poem was occasioned by the seeing of a beautiful face..

Someone said that it seems faintly inspired from Byron’s ‘She Walks In Beauty’. (clearly then, it needs more talent than inspiration to do a Byron : )
