Aila effect for 'Rain Lucky' !!

Two days back Kolkata experienced the Aila cyclone. It was a welcome relief, of course we left office early !! Our office is at the edge of the city limits, beyond there are some shallow water bodies. The window panes just infront of my cube were shaking to the violent push of Aila. There was total chaos outside on the roads. People were scuttling back home paying anything the taxis, autos and rickshaws were charging. Well most of us who lived nearby walked our way back.
Here are few pics I clicked from my new cell and yeah my same number is now in service.

And of course, I got 'Rain Lucky' and did the following lines. Njoy..

The wind is beating on the glass,
Luring me to join the rush..
But I sit sipping my mug of coffee,
a faint heart that I am.
Then a part of me is there,
already in the midst of the rains..

He's already wet,
with the sails all set.
He take's out the little dingy;
Not to take on the storm.
There's a magic,
in riding with the storm..

The waves rise and the mast creaks.
He is momentarily shaken;
But then he's not me,
The waves fall on him,
The winds push on him,
But then he's not me.

The storm lasts forever,
Until he's sailed a million knots.
Then one day the black cover clears,
and a sun comes out.
Suddenly the flying fish take flight,
and the dolphins do acrobats.

He's travelled a million knots.
And he's made friends with the storm;
It has brought him to a place..
unseen and undiscovered on the planet,
It's the land of the wonders..

The sun is falling down on me;
I am still by the window..
while he's savouring the new wonderland.
If only I were him and he was me;
But arent we the same..

I must take out my dingy!!


hmmm..well,this poem is gud but not as gud as the last one you'd posted.Unable to feel what you're describing .Anyway,keep writing.As they say "The best way to get gud ideas is to get a lot of ideas".
Anyway,the pics are fantastic.Doesn't look like they have been shot from the camera of a mobile fone!

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
