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 'Little Miss

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut) wit
