A shot from Lalbagh, Bangalore



ഈ ഒരു വഴി, ചേരും
ആ പലവഴികൾ
ചേരും, ഒരു വഴിയേ…!
പല വഴിയേ, പല വഴികൾ!
ചേരുന്നത്, എല്ലാം, ഒരു വഴിയേ!
*                 *                   *                         *

നഴ്സറിയിൽ പഠിക്കുന്ന കുഞ്ഞുമോൻ, കാർ റോഡിലേക്ക് ഇറങ്ങിയപ്പോൾ മുതൽ
പറയുന്നുണ്ടായിരുന്നു : “ചേട്ടാ, ഈ വഴി എന്റെ സ്കൂളിലേക്കുള്ളതാ. എന്തിനാ ഇന്ന് നമ്മൾ സ്കൂളിൽ പോണേ? ഇന്ന് സൺ‌ഡേ ഹോളിഡേ അല്ലേ?!”
ചേട്ടൻ: “എടാ, ഈ റോഡ് നിന്റെ സ്കൂളിലേക്ക് മാത്രമല്ല പോകുന്നെ…”

വാദ-പ്രതിവാദം കുറേ നേരം തുടർന്നു! പിന്നെ എപ്പോഴോ രണ്ടുപേരും ഉറങ്ങി!

ആരോ നിയന്ത്രിക്കുന്നെന്ന തോന്നലോടെ കാർ പാഞ്ഞു!
കാർ ഓടിക്കുന്നെന്ന ഭാവത്തോടെ ഞാനും!
വഴികൾ എന്നെ അലട്ടുന്നുണ്ടായിരുന്നു.
പക്ഷെ പിന്നെ തോന്നി, കുഞ്ഞുമോനും ശരി തന്നെ…..;
കുട്ടികൾ രണ്ടുപേരും ശരിയാണ്! അവരാണ് ശരി!
പല വഴിയേ, പല വഴികൾ! ചേരുന്നത്, എല്ലാം, ഒരു വഴിയേ!

…and finally…!

It is almost a year back, I posted a blog about Dr APJ Abdul Kalam and the sad situation of his burial site. [The old blog is here: “Remembrance is gratitude!”]

Thanks to those who supported and made his memorial a reality today. It is a tiny gift from Indians to that great soul!


Our Prime Minister inaugurated Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Memorial in his hometown of Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu today!! [News Link here] Incidentally, today is Dr APJ Abdul Kalam’s 2nd death anniversary!

…and finally, we showed our gratitude….!



“…a bulb flying on its own!”(Tom&Jerry Story)




Tom: a 12 yr boy; Jerry: a 5 yr boy


Jerry was feeling sleepy.
Jerry: “Mama, feeling sleepy! Please come”
Mama: “Yeah, coming in two minutes. You brush first!”
Mama is very particular about brushing at night. Huh. Morning also  😉
Jerry: “Already Brushed! I am so sleepy Mama..”
Mama: “When?”
Jerry: “Ok, will do again!” 😉
It is difficult to slip through Mama’s questions!

Mama and Jerry went to bed.
Tom was sitting on the sofa. His head is missing! Oops, it is inside his book!
Papa is busy searching for a topic for his blog post 😉

After Jerry left the scene, a total silence prevailed!

All of a sudden!:
Mama: “Tom, Tom, Papa, Papa…..come….come fast!!!!”
Tom and Papa sensed something urgent and were about to go towards the bedroom….Mama was already rushing out!

Mama: “Come, fast…..see see the window!!!”

Tom and Papa rushed to the window.
Jerry had already climbed up the window.

Tom & Papa (together): “Usual!” :))
Mama: “What?”
Tom: “He climbs and jumps off to the bed, that is usual…”
Papa supported, nodding his head. (Tom & Papa are too much!)  😉

Jerry: “Boys, look at this… flying bulb!”
Tom: “Flying bulb?”
Jerry: “Yes, bulb flying on its own!”

Papa and Tom looked at the window closely…

Wow…firefly! Moving up slowly just outside the window pane!
Jerry was climbing along with it! 🙂

Papa: “It is so cute and moving like a rocket!”
Jerry: “No Papa, it is a bulb flying on its own!”

Papa:”….oh…ok…bulb flying on its own!”
Tom: “Hey Jerry, Papa got a title for his blog post!”
Quickly Jerry came down and looked at papa seriously and said: “Don’t blog this!”

Silence; Smile; Then, all back to the beauty in the dark!
Jerry was not sleepy anymore! 🙂

Deflected Reflections!


Reflection in the mirror
Daily he digs deep!
Looks young as yesterday?
Looks young as today morning?
The mirror just reflects;
Deflected in him!

New mirror,
New reflection
Old soul, old mind and body
The mirror just reflects;
The way he deflects!

Lives eternal;
Does what not!

Wrinkled skin;
Visible bones;
White hairs;
Cracked lips;
Teeth scarce;
Deep eyes;
Shallow sight!

“Hey, You look so young”
His younger commented!!
He towed him to the mirror
He towed him to the deflections!

Buried rays want a resurrection,
Yet succumbed!

Mirror asked:
“Shall I reflect your life? “
He said:
” Wait, let me blacken my hairs!!”
