Pitter Patter

A bit of pitter

And a bit of patter

And a few drops here and there


A daisy dee

And a bumblebee

And all the pollen and honey they share


The daisy dry

The bumble cry

But treasures honey, pollen, raindrops – so rare   


I went to the neighborhood chicken shop while going home on
Saturday and asked the guy in the shop to give a kilo of chicken. When I went
to cook it I found there were two hearts. So I thought it must be a “love bird”
– ‘do dil, ek jan hey hum!”. But then I discovered, there was only one leg, one
wing and not two but three hearts. Mhmm! So either it was a ‘dil phek ashiq’ or
may be the background score in the chicken shop must have been “Dil bhar, dil
bhar! Oooo dil bhar dil bhar!” and the shopkeeper gave me “dil” – bharke…


Monsoon has taken a break through out the country. And so
rain has disappeared from here too. Seems like people who were not getting the
rains has really cursed it, and so monsoon has to take some time off bitterly.
I only hope that all our good wishes brings her with all her loving showers
back to us soon! Amen!



Still compiling BBRR, suggestions welcome!

  4. 🙂 sammy is behaving in a similar fashion.  about rajdoot i agree … how can a companion of a decade be sold? its blasphemous. 
    dont let the confusion thing fetter you …
    here we find a nice beginning … a wonderful chicken … and a lovely message in the end.
    maybe giving monsoon 😉 some time to recoup … could bring her back with all her loveliness.
    may she shower her loving blessings on you soon. Amen.

Heh heh, no man, I loom over everyone in the compartment coz I\’m slightly taller than average…and I\’m pucca punjabi when it comes to structure…So yeah, I copuld beat the shit out of those women anyday…Thankfully I don have that punjabi temper!! Varna bechaari aurtein jaane kya karteen…

  7. and u want something too.. and the dead chicken wanted three hearts…or that shopkeeper wanted a bit of a profit…..

  10. mana kuch raaz rehta hain chupe
    uss muskaan mein daabe
    mana nagme gaaye the
    din raat ke darmiyaan
    phir bhi
    nayi subaah hoti hain
    lub musuratien hain
    zindagi mein phir
    mohabbat ke lehar jagate hain
    sisikiyon chod gunjti hai hansi
    jab maun torr shabado mein yeh basiii
    jagati hain ek naya savera
    jahan hota hain umeed sung vishwas  ka baseera
    phir sawan leherata hain
    tapur tupur
    pyaar ki varsha barsaata hain
    jo apne sung baha  le jaati hain saari tanhai
    mitta deti hai zindagi ki ruswai
    janm deti hai ek naya pal
    agar chhaho to ho sakta hain yeh ek naya kal…..

  16. ic, i m far away from my land and hence far away from monsoon too.  what remains with me are wisps of her fragrance … ah! how sweet the air smelled when the maiden monsoon drizzled on parched souls …
    But from the met offices i understand that monsoon has visited somewhere in the north.  and the forecast for dear south is …  Today:  Chance of rain 60%. Tonight: Chance of rain 60%. Tomorrow: Chance of rain 60%. Tomorrow night: Chance of rain 60%.  It could be anytime now 😉
    Inference: No. Parched souls cannot be ignored for long.
