Casanova's Gold

Promoter of crisis-ridden Kingfisher Airlines and UB Group Chairman Vijay Mallya made an offering of gold bricks, weighing about three kg, at the famous hill shrine of Lord Venkateswara on his 58th birthday. Link

Vijay Mallya, the illustrious Vittal's son
Was a casanova and romeo rolled in one
For atonement, he offered gold
As he grew fiftyeight years old
When girls left him saying there was no more fun!

Sweet but Problematic

There was a young woman who was diabetic
She ate well and avoided exercise hectic
She ate a lot of ice-cream n cherry
"Oh, Life is all about making merry"
Her doctor diagnosed her 'sweet but problematic.'

Scam Bank

The secret is now open wide,
So many with so much to hide,
An amazing erruption
The stories of Corruption
And how so-and-so cheated and lied.

Cheating in land and cheating on Games,
Cheating in airwaves, and mining claims,
Behaving true to form
Blatant lying is the norm,
You oppose and your career goes up in flames.

Why not we  define a Scam Cooperative Bank
All scam stuff recovered will be money in the tank,
No tolerating nonsense
No sitting on the fence
And no one signing on cheques that are blank...

It's time our citizen's  needs are heeded,
So many million toilets for all are needed,
Roads, medicines and schools,
Will no longer suffer fools,
And its time the women were better treated

And as the head of the bank, appoint a set of three,
One woman,a senior citizen, and a lawyer who works free;
Dont forget  a few MUSTS,
Refuse loans to all Trusts,
And tell others , things will not be interest free....

Glare at the Netas, bar politicians at the door,
They will abuse, but then they are rotten to the core,
But there's a slight quirk,
Some folks must really work,
To create scams , so the bank gets funded more and more...

The Reluctant Dahlia

My friend Deepak Amembal has a Magiceye.  He recently went on a visit to Kanatal  in the Western Himalayas , and tried to click this Dahlia on one of his walks.

What can  I say. She simply turned her face away.......  :-(

I dont blame the dahlia. Must be unnerving to have several people with black contraptions peering and looking   at her , when normally,  people simply pass her by in the daily course of events.

Dahlias are not known to be shy,
This one is, and I wonder why.
She gives a glance quick,
And a fellow goes Click,
That's it. She turns away. Goodbye.

The Opportunity in Calamity

Prithviraj Chavan, the gentleman Chief Minister
Could not do much with deputies sinister
They faced people's ire
When their office was on fire
That's the only way to oust them, it's not a disaster

Love for Cricket

Cricket is a religion in India, everyone knows that.
Sachin is God - it is a 'taken for granted' fact
He scored his 100th ton,
Still the match wasn't won,
But he won the hearts of millions with superb batting act.

And yesterday's encounter was the biggest of all
India played Pakistan, the chasing target was tall.
Yet we managed to win
Kohli had the widest grin
For scoring a ton and causing Pak bowlers' fall.

Our country is one crazy cricket loving nation.
Cricket is our love, life, addiction and passion.
It's not just a sport,
and the words fall short
To describe our love for this "close to life" action.

Rummy Excuses

Oh this blog looks pretty glum
Missing the regular hum
Of friends sharing their minds
You ask me why i don't share mine?
Well, it has been fattened on cakes containing plum.

Does my excuse sound really rum?
Well i do have to give you some
Don't want to admit to a total lack
Of ideas for fear of flack
But the fact remains: No ideas come
