Parody[14]~Code-um Logic-um… ;)

This is a stupid song “Dream-um Wakeup-um” from Rani-MukherjiPrithviraj‘s latest movie “Aiyaaa” and it has now been made even more drastically stupid by engineering it with our IT industry funda…won’t call this the Best Practice though!

Here we go: Lemme know if it fits to the tune!
 
Code-um logic-um not-at-all compiling-um
Bug-um error-um bill full client wakeup-um
 
Case to case-um testing fail-um
Base to top-um fulltu escalation-um
Server-um citrix-um down-um surrender-um
Small-um matter-um (now) big-um blunder-um
Sundaram… Arunachalam…
Kalyan-um…Narayana-um…
Onne rende moone, no…surely all naalavdu bucket-num
 
Start meeting-um finger-a pointing-um
Respect lost trouble vast, gotta escape-num
Excel sheet-um Data corrupt-um
Google search I’m feeling no lucky-um
Shame to shame-um, waste s/w engineer-um
Full-um screw-um Appraisal rating-um…
 
Server-um citrix-um down-um surrender-um
Small-um matter-um (now) big-um blunder-um
Sundaram… Arunachalam…
Kalyan-um…Narayana-um…
Onne rende moone, no…surely naalavdu bucket-num!

Like“?

You can read my old parodies – HERE.

Glossary: Onne – One, Rende – Two, Moone – Three, Naalavdu = Fourth..

[Humor-Poetry]~Can Sakhu Bai ask Why?

Hello Namaste Vanakkam, yo! I’m back again…
Still hot and beautiful I’m, Aayi Shappat, hand on my brain!
Say you didn’t miss me, without telling a lie…
Can Sakhu Bai ask why?

Btw, what do these men think?
That if I speak nice, they can pick me with a wink?
Now all I feel is that there is not one decent guy…
Can Sakhu Bai ask why?

I bought a car, which runs on deejil…
As petrol is costly for a tank fill…
And just now they increased deejil cost by five…
Can Sakhu Bai ask why?

Life is funny, and to screw it would just be an irony…
I believe in Karma, and so not always safe to meddle with destiny!
When someone smiles, it’s always more than what meets the eye…
Can Sakhu Bai ask why?

I wondered what scam they could do with a toothpaste…
When all day on television, I got to hear about Co(a)lgate…
When I understood, I realized India Shining was just a lie…
Can Sakhu Bai ask why?

*****************************************************************
Note: The English language is deliberately twisted at a few places in this poem…so my dearest English pundits, please echoos me…this is purely a desi-flavored masala!!

Translations & Twists:
Aayi Shappat = Mother Promise
Deejil = Diesel
Vanakkam = Welcome/Hello

We…She and Me~The FUN never ENDS! ;)

I did WAKE UP that morning, like always, late to the rising sun…
She was lying down next to me, head covered, like a nun…
“Will you get up?” I asked half hungry, half awake…
I got no reply but before any damage could happen I realized my mistake!

As I prepared the breakfast, I logged into Facebook…
Felt good, as I updated my status about what did I cook…
The married men did ‘like’ it, while singletons thought it to be a joke…
I heard her call my name, so I logged off but not before repaying her poke!

Out of blue she asked “Who is more beautiful – me or the moon?”
I didn’t know what to say, for the sun was burning that afternoon…
And I said “Can I tell you later dear, after comparing with the moon?”
She stared at me hard, as if I was some freaky performing baboon!

I thought, ‘The month began with a weekend, how bad it could be’
For SEPTEMBER had ended and October was all about festivity!
“What’s special for dinner?” I asked her, making small talk…
“Ask the moon that” she said smiling…ah, the pleasures of wedlock!

‘The fun never ENDS’, I sighed smiling back at her…
These things are inevitable with opposites living together!
With potatoes set to boil, I logged into Facebook…
She had commented on my status saying “Tonight he will cook <3”! 😉

[Crazy-Poetry]~ Wall in Love: The Sakhu-MJ Networking!! ;)

Life was hell, with the poor me squeezed like lime…
I was happy then, but ten months is quite a long time…
What if my relationship status was “Committed” on Facebook…
He still sent me a fraand request, giving my profile pic just one look…

I looked pretty eating a pizza by hands, but must say he was quite bold…
He seemed cute, though his display pic was that of a one year old…
“Hi…friends call me MJ and I also love to eat”, he gave intro and told…
Accepting his request, I welcomed him into my online household…

He made me repeatedly LOL LOL, by cracking jokes on his tummy…
And sometimes I went ROFL, when he told how strict was his mummy…
Sad was this Sakhu Bai, for the last 10 months and then came this MAN…
Now I feel happy and maybe – just maybe – in love, as in my mind he ran…

All my statuses, good or boring – he’s the first to “like”…
In many of his comments, he’s promised to take me on his bike…
Seeing lots of istree-yan in his friend list, used to make me oh so jealous…
But seeing them all call him “anna, anna”, it is now so much hilarious…

You know, he invited me to his Farmville saying “let us grow some crop”…
Though Sakhu knows no farming, I said “Bring pink cow from over the hill top”…
And then he “pokes” me regularly writing funny liners on my wall…
Temme temme…How the hell can Sakhu Bai control herself? In love, she had to fall… 😀

******************************************************************
Note: The English language is deliberately twisted at a few places in this poem…so my dearest English pundits, pls echoos me…this is purely a desi-flavored masala!! 

On request from dearest Sakhu Bai, I intend to dedicate these verses to our dear MJ – The theme of this poem was based on listening to all his stories and also knowing his online avatar!! 

Translations (for the few non-english words that I’ve used):
1) istree-yan = ladies
2) Anna = brother

The Sakhu Bai series so far:
1. Name is Sakhu Bai
2. Sakhu Bai…in love!

[PhotoVerse]~A November to Remember…

Hand in hand, One step at a time…
Around the sacred flame, in an imaginary line…

A long way to go, of what started this November…
A companion so lovely and a walk to remember…

[Poetry]~Passing the Apron! ;)

I didn’t think about the dinner at night…
When I fell in love with her at first sight…

I did what-not like look into her eyes…
Not thinking once, if she could cook some rice…

We were then married, all set for life…
“Can you chop these?” she asked, handing over a knife…

With onions in hand, I said “Sure…not a big deal!”…
So this is how I cried, as she cooked our first meal….

Meals ready, she asked “So…how’s the food…”…
Also giving me options, “…tell me darling…good or very good?”…

With a morsel of food in mouth, I said “Hmm…wELL…”
And looked at her smiling, as I silently let the moment dwell…

She smiled back as she understood that stupid look on my face…
“Why don’t you cook henceforth?” she grinned, enrolling me in the race…

I still wonder, as to who thinks about kitchen delights…
As they continue to fall in love at first sights! 😉

Never have I loved someone before… :)

I think of you, as it rains…
And when it stops, only your thought remains…
I see you, smiling bright…
When the sun shines out of sight…
I miss you, as the sun sets…
Deeper I fall in love, the darker it gets…

Never have I loved someone before…
…as much as I’ve loved you…

I feel alive, by the touch of your hands…
And I wish this stays forever, as it stands…
Lost in your thoughts, I search for the light…
Remembering you smile, I wish you were here tonight…
I miss you, as the sun sets…
Deeper I fall in love, the darker it gets…

Never have I loved someone before…
…as much as I’ve loved you…

A dry day, in May!

Lights are flashing, mind’s disturbing…
Not my fault, her love’s lost…
Tides repeating, times are changing…
Not her fault, it pained me a lot…

Met her down the street…
Sometime late, of last September…
We had fun, mood being upbeat…
And a walk to remember…

Hand in hand, singing a song…
Caring for none, loud and drunk…
Going no where, just heading along…
Beneath the vast sky, lay our bunk…

Talking of birds, and to stars…
Lost in time, and into each other…
Window-shopping, strolls to bazaars…
Bonds got stronger, we didn’t bother…

And then…

One fine morning, it all went wrong…
Sometime mid, of this May…
There was no music, thus ended the song…
There was no her, no liquor, just a dry day…

PS: This is a rejected piece of work for an internal corporate blog-a-zine…rejected cos the theme was “Be happy” and this one though started happy, went sour 😉

[Poetry]~ But then…

Aaradhnak and I were having this chat. Well, we do a lot of blog-a-talk discussing on topics – what we write, what we don’t, what went or can go wrong, what we didn’t try for long or at all, et. al.
A: “It’s been a long time since you wrote something poetic…in English”
Me: “Hmmm…yeah, seems like…you want it to be sad or with humor?”
A: “Sad is better…we can at least be sad…” and after a pause she said, “…and at the same time laugh, at the way you write sad poetry” 🙄

Hmm…So dedicated to A…Call it poetry or whatever…here’s to a bit of sadness – that you can choose to laugh on! 😀

It all changed and I don’t know how…
You just came by, and I fell in love…
It was my first time, this acquaintance…
Happy and excited I was, at that instance…

Flowers bloomed, happiness was all around…
I heard music, in every other silly sound…
The moments you were missed, were very few…
As at every blink of an eye, I did see you…

But then…

Why did you leave me all alone…
Why did you break-up over the phone…
Why did you make me write this song…
Why did you promise to sing along…

What happened to those happy times…
Are they just meant for those nursery rhymes…
Tell me, where did I go all wrong…
I thought this would last a lifelong…

Hmm…

It all changed and I don’t know how…
What do I do without you, now…
It’s so damn tough, to live in the past…
You were my first, you are my last…

[Hindi]~ Kyun hey? Hmm..

Dunno why I wrote this, when I wrote this…

All I know is that I wrote it long long ago, and found it on my desk scribbled on a sheet of cramped paper!

Khilta hey gulaab, Khilta hey khwaab…
Har sawaal ka nahi milta kyun hey jawaab?

Tadapta hey jism, Tadpata hey pyaar…
Izhaar se zyaada karna padta kyun hey intezaar?

Barasta hey baarish, Behti hey nadiya…
Chor bazaar ke peeche gumsum kyun hey galiya?

Rangeen hey wadiya, Rangeela hey mann…
Do paise kamaane ke liye bechti kyun hey ye tann?

Khula hey aasmaan, Khuli hey khidki…
Khota hey naseeb, najaane kyun hey kadki?

If you are feeling sad reading whatever you read, have a smile…like this gentleman! 😀
