Nothing serious about it – 1

26 May

I have no particular topic to write on…I didn’t even find a photograph to cook a story on…hence this rant…no other reason…so bear with me! 😀

Oflate I have been writing poems as and when I felt like writing something inspite of having no topics at my disposal. Either I created a sad moody ambience in the vacuum space underneath my scalp wrote on the real sad situation that prevails in the island country at the south of India. Some of you guys have felt sad at my sadness while some understood the fact that I was just trying to make something out of nothing. Thanks to both the kinds of readers…your respective perspective keeps me thinking, and motivates me to pile on spam over here! 😀

Kids…this word makes me smile! I love them!
Times have changed, with the DNA’s having mutated big time…kids seem to grow up faster than they should, at least much faster than I did (did I? :P)…
When I was a kid, the moment the “Nirodh” Advertisement came on Doordarshan my dad/mom/whoever used to remind me to go inside and study even though I was enjoying my summer holidays! Poor guys didn’t have an option to change the channels.
As I came into my teens, it was payback time. I changed channels when different flavors of “Moods” were telecast while I was watching the idiot-box with my dad. He too had his own ways to deal with the situation…he picked up the newspaper, no matter it was today’s or even a decade old.
Kids I know, just one third of a dozen old in age…shout in hindi “Ab koi pareshani nahi” (Now there’s nothing to worry)…as the “Ipill” ad ends. Dunno where they get that from, cos there’s no such slogan in that advertisement. We all laugh at their innocence(??) but then, the times have actually changed! 🙂 Kids are kids no more! 😦

Its been a long time (7 months now) since I have written my favorite we-she-me poetry…Its normally during my train rides between Chennai and Bangalore do I pen down those, thanks to some inspiration in the nearby berths. I thought of writing one this past weekend when I was on the way back to Chennai. To my dismay, there were only men around in my coach…someone rightly said “serves you right” last night! Sigh! 😀

BTW, Chennai is getting hot and hotter day by day…being perennially hot, can Chennai be considered to be a “She”? 😛

PS: This post is labelled part-1 just to make you plead and comment ”pls don’t write such rubbish ever again”! 😀

PPS: In the above pic, its Ms.Kaley Cuoco – my lovely ‘Penny’ in the latest Sitcom, the geeky “Big Bang Theory”! 😀

    Aha!! well……so there is the reason for you penning potry that generally suggested depression to the point of jumping from atop skyscrapers or shooting yerself or drinking from the reddish smallish bottle conveniently labelled POISON in big letters!!
    And well, lets hope the law of averages catches up with u regarding train journeys! and with me too…..for self has only travelled with middle aged unlces (who belch loudly and snore) and aunties (who generally spill whatever they eat).

    I just remember only the “pyar hua” song of that nirodh ad. I am sure I dint knew what its used for when I enjoyed that ad songs at those times!! 😛
    I also remember, mom calling me from kitchen to do some silly job, when Titanic was screened on TV and the most awaited scene was about to come… 😀 hehe…

    he hee kids are now so advanced that I was horrified when my young daughter asked me where she came from I looked at her in puzzlement to try and cook up a story.Instead she looked at me in concern and said Oh mummy dont worry If you forgot I can tell you Miss brown at school told us all about it!!!
    Kids are maturing so fast its sad to see thier childhood cut short.
    Nice post sree!!

    Ah!..Damn!…i dnt know any of these ads…what a big miss for me! *Sigh*
    But still i have my own ads reminding me of my childhood and the peace peculiar to those years…
    I totally agree with you about the CHANGE…sometimes i wish time could stop at the happiest moments of us, at least for a while:)
