Delhi is an overpopulated state,
Every individual’s needs & whims, its deficient resources, cannot satiate.
Yet, in the past few years Dehiites have witnessed such rapid changes,
That previously materialized, in ages.
The roads are broader,
The routes are shorter,
And every Delhiite must confess
That the Delhi Metro has been, a grand success.
Our country is big and our problems are bigger,
Besides, it has a history of having politicians, who almost always, swagger.
However, Delhi's Chief Minister, is a class apart,
We at least know, that she is trying her best, to do her part.

Let us not forget that we are a comparatively new democracy,
We only got our independence in the previous century.
India has indeed, come a long way,
And has the potential to take the world in its sway.
However, we need to be calm and patient,
Till our country becomes entirely self sufficient.

[Who works for the Indian government? How many of us, actually meet deadlines? Who litters and dirties public places? How many of us are entirely honest and don’t think that a little bit of corruption is rather convenient (Be honest!) ? What are we, as individuals, doing for our country?
And finally, what makes a nation? Most people, barring a few idealists, after finding answers to these questions, should ideally stop blaming the Delhi government for the so called “Commonwealth Debacle”.]

No matter how practical a mortal seems,
Can any mortal ever say,
That in the night or during the day,
He never dreams?

All living beings have different thoughts and feelings,
So they dream of diverse things.
Poets dream of beauty and romance,
While the worldly-wise crave for freedom, fun and finance.
Children dream of absolute merriment,
While the senile seek spiritual fulfillment.
The teenager yearns for his lover,
But the hermit prefers the silence of nature’s bower.

A dream reveals the mischief of our subconscious mind,
And relieves us from the pressures of our daily grind.
It transports us into a trance like state,
And every desire, it secretly satiates.
To all hidden thoughts and sentiments,
A dream always gives a much needed vent.

Even when everything in life goes wrong,
Our dreams inspire us to move on.
Dreams are like motion pictures created inside a mortal’s mind,
And they always help us to relax and unwind.

Dreams offer at least a temporary respite,
From the regular gift of sorrows that our Generous God so graciously provides.
By offering us this free form of entertainment,
With mortals, Guilty Mr. God, seems to have made a settlement.

Global Warming

The rise in the temperature of the earth is called Global Warming,
It is primarily caused by deforestation and fossil fuel burning.
Global Warming started after the Industrial Revolution,
And Its impact varies from region to region.
This rise in the global temperature,
Will adversely affect the world’s future.
 The glaciers are melting,
And the sea level is rising.
There is a decrease in global evaporation and precipitation,
Which has severely affected agriculture and food production.
So come, let’s join hands and plant more trees,
And control the pollution spread by vehicles and industries.
We should use only renewable resources,
To save our world we must accept certain recourses.
For if the rate of global warming does not decline,
The seas of the world will cross their coastlines.
There will be death and destruction everywhere,
And all mortals will witness their worst nightmare.

The transmission of messages through signals for communication,
Is known as Telecommunication.
In ancient times, messengers, pigeons and beacons,
Carried out long distance communication.
In the modern era of electricity and electronics,

A basic telecommunication system consists,
Of three primary units.
A Transmitter converts information into signals,
Which are taken to a Receiver through several Physical Channels.
The Receiver, reconverts the signals into information,
Before it reaches its final destination.

While the TELEPHONE was Alexander Graham Bell’s invention.
George Stibitz’s researches lead to the development,
Of a process called ‘Request for Comment’.
This formed the basis of a four-node network called the ARPANET.,
Which eventually merged with other networks to form the INTERNET.

Communication with anyone, anywhere in the world, is now possible,
Since physical distance is hardly an obstacle.
People can easily stay connected with friends and family,
Social Networking sites are also gaining popularity.
Thanks to telecommunication,
The whole world is like one big nation.

Relationships represent the commingling of hearts, souls and minds.
And they are of many kinds.
Most meticulous mortals say,
And several self-help books convey,
That Love & Compromise; Fidelity & Friendship,
Are the essential elements of a healthy relationship.
If we all know this,
Then in a relationship, why can’t we ever enjoy, lasting bliss?

Well it is my judgment firm,
That ‘Love’ is the world’s most misused term.
And will it come as a surprise,
If I say, that most of us, hate to make a ‘Compromise’?
And Lo!! We almost forgot Aunt ‘Fidelity’!
To hell with her!! After all there is such, such a wide variety!
All creatures crave for companionship,
But Mean Madame Ego famously feeds on fine friendship.

Human nature is unpredictable,
It is complex and often changeable.
To a mortal, the mantra for a good ‘relationship’ has always been a mystery,
And the biggest proof of this is Monsieur History.
Well that’s a good explanation,
But it doesn’t resolve the situation.
Dear God, give us a solution,
It’s the plea of the entire human population.

My Students

Excessive energy, ingenious ideas and varying talents,
These are the traits of my darling students.
They live each day,
With the spirit and zeal, of a holiday.

Whenever I am sad or depressed,
I think about them and feel relaxed and refreshed.
Their bright innocent faces,
Force me to overlook all their vices.

Sometimes they are mischievous,
Their strategies to cut classes are often devious.
My students hate assignments, projects and lectures,
They also specialize in bullying the new teachers.

According to them, it’s not so cool to be called a ‘nerd’,
And ‘Examination’ is, obviously, the most detested word.
Yet these reckless rioters turn religious during the exam days,
And miraculously, mend their wanton ways.

A couple of days before the result declaration,
The teacher, inevitably, becomes the object of their sudden affection.
Alas! They always forget that most teachers have a conscience,
And that they should have made a better use of their intelligence.

Its fun and frolic for those who pass,
And an year-full of insults for those who remain in the same class.
Thus, school life follows its well defined pattern of progression,
And the same saga continues, in the next session.
