“I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair” by Pablo Neruda

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.

I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.

I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,

and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
Like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.”~ Pablo Neruda

The Consultant’s Fees!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a Story About, Karan, a Young Dynamic & Up-Coming Consultant, Living in New York.

One Day, Karan came Tired home for Dinner, after a busy round of Meetings & when he saw the Watch he saw it was 10:30 pm already. He Quickly sat on the Dinner Table, upon seeing him, his 5 Year Old son, Krish ran up to greet him & welcomed him home with the Warmest Smile..

Karan Low on Energy, quickly greeted him as he Washed his Hands & sat on the Dinner Table as the sound of the Microwave Popped.  Krish was eager to tell him about the new Words he recently learned at School. But, Karan quickly told him that he was so very Tired, so He’d hear him over the coming Sunday.

Krish, then quickly asked him how was work?, to which, Karan replied, “Its fine, my Son”. Krish quickly followed it with another question, “How much do you Earn on an Hourly Basis, Dad?”, Karan was stunned & replied, “Why do you ask that?” Krish again asked, “I want to know Daddy”, Karan quickly rebutted, “I get $50 an hour & would you now please let me Eat in Peace?”

Krish waited for him to finish the meal & asked for $20 for himself. The Father gave him the same along with a Good Night Kiss on the Cheek & went off to Sleep.

A few day Later, Krish asked his Mom, for some more money citing the reason of Buying some New Stationery. Later in the Night, he met his dad and handed him over a $50 Note! He in a self implied mood told him, “I need an hour of your time, tommorow, so Plz. come Home earlier by an Hour to have Dinner with me..”

This Simple But Loavble Story teaches us, the Value of Relations & Finding Time for Our Loved Ones in this Fast Paced Monetarily inclined World! So, PLEASE GIVE SOME OF YOUR TIME TO YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY & LOVED ONES…. Always!!

“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”~ Henry Van Dyke

A Short but Meaningful Story of Dreams…!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Story is about Three Hindu Men, Part Nomads Part Saints, who are devoted to the thought of finding God on their Search Trip across India. Obviously None of them is Earning & depend upon Whatever Food is offered to them by Virtue of Gift & at times as Alms! The Food offered to them was Rarely Lavish & Normally used to be Chapati’s (Flat Bread), Dal (Home Cooked Pulses) or Khichdi (Vegeterian Kedgeree).

One day across the outskirts of Varanasi, A Rich man saw them & came to ask for their Blessings, as he was planning to venture into a New Business, He Offered them Home Made Kheer, A Local Indian Sweet dish, relished across all genres of People in India. The Kheer was about Half a Bowl.

When the 3 Men thought of Eating it, they concluded it was too less to fulfill the tastebuds of all 3 & was infact, only enough to satisfy the Tastebuds of one of them. So they finally decided, that All 3 would sleep over & in the Morning, discuss their dreams. The One with the Most Beautiful Dream would get to eat the Kheer.

The Three of them try dozing off, but to no avail due to an empty stomach, So, in a Queer resolute, the 1st one Gets up & goes Riverside to imagine what he would tell the other 2 about his dream, in calmness & without the Noise of Snore, Soon after the 2nd one, decides to walk up the hill, to gather his thoughts & Paint his Dream beautifully, with words offcourse. The 3rd manages to sleep for a littlewhile but His Sleep is somewhat distraught too, So After a while, The 3rd one, who’s also the youngest decides to get up & when he sees that both his compatriots arent there, He in the Wake of Hunger, Eats the Kheer, wipes his face clean & puts back the Lid on the Bowl as it was & Sleeps Peacefully with a full stomach.

The Next Morning, When all three Wake up, after what seemed a Long Long Night & Anticipating to Savour the Taste of the Sweet Dish, they all sit down, do their Morning chores, Do their Prayers & sit over to discuss their Dreams…

The 1st to Narrate his Dream is the one who went towards the Riverside, He Begins “I had the Best Dream Yesternight, My Loved Deity, Ram came in my Dreams yesternight & I had the Pleasure of His Darshan, then he asked me What do you Wish my Son?.. to which I Replied, I wish to see Ayodhya & do Darshan of Sita Mata & see the Beautiful Countryside of my Beloved Deity, Shri Ram. Shri Ram said Tathastu (I Grant your Wish) and took me away to Ayodhya, where I Saw Pristine Happiness amongst the Countrymen, Hugged Brother Laxman & Bharat, and Greeted Sita Maiyya. I had such a Great time & am sure I have the Best Dream Ever.” As He Finished Narrating the Dream & Exuberantly Happy with it, he started to lean towards the Bowl of Kheer, to Grab & Eat it.

The 2nd one interrupted his Moment of Glory & said “You did Indeed have a Good Dream, but you guys Must Hear mine as it is the Best of them all”. He Further Began Narrating his Dream.. “In My Dream came the Most Enchanting & My Beloved Deity, Lord Krishna. He asked me What do you want to see?, I Replied that I wish to see His Virat Swaroop, followed by a Visit to Mathura, He Granted me the Wish & 1st showed me the Virat Roop, and then took me amidst the Gopi’s & the Serene Mathura, where I heard the chirruping of birds to Kanha’s symhony on the flute & Gopi’s dancing in a Trance to it. I had the best time ever..”

After, hearing this Narration, All eyes were at the 3rd one, He Calmly but Confidently began narrating his.. “I was awakened in my Dream by the Almighty Hanuman, the Deity I have such Strong Belief & Love for, He Woke me up & told me that He’s gonna make this Dream worth its way in Gold. Lord Hanuman, quickly blessed me & told me to Drink the Kheer, as it was full of his Vitality & Warmth, I intermittently asked that even my Friends wanted to Eat this, to which he Replied, One of them is with Prabhu Shri Ram & The Other one with Lord Krishna having the Best time of their Life, this Kheer is Paltry to the Joy they are experiencing, also, it was Blessed with Hanuman ji’s Vitality, Strength & Warmth and I was Refusing it? Hanuman ji asked me with Raised eyebrows, “Don’t you believe me??” How Could I Say No to the Almighty Wishes & thus I Drank”, Opening the Lid on the Bowl of Kheer & showing the empty Bowl…

The Remaining Two, with a Feeling of Disdain but not having an Answer to him, looked up & accepted the Order of the Day, with a Shake of the Head.  This Story teaches us the following, Being Street Smart i.e. Being Articulate & Smart enough to Manage things in a difficult situation & moving them towards one’s own advantage very tactfully & diplomatically, A Virtue quintessential to getting things done in the Current Worldly Scenario. It also Teaches us that We Shouldn’t only Dream, Dream of Action isnt Enough, Finding a Way to Paint your Dream in Reality is most important. Those who find a Way to Make their Dream a Reality are the ones who actually win, Others just keep Dreaming!! 😉 So, Dont Just Dream it.. Do It!!

Teri Parwaah Karta Hoon Main Maa
Tujhe Sab Hain Pata, Hain Na Maa

Bheed Mein Yun Na Chodo Mujhe
Ghar Laut Ke Bhi Aa Naa Paoon Maa
Bhej Na Itna Door Mujkko Tu
Yaad Bhi Tujhko Aa Naa Paoon Maa

“I’ve never told you
How scared I am of the dark
I’ve never told you
How much I care for you
But you know, don’t you Mom?
You know everything, my Mom.

Don’t leave me alone in crowds
I’ll lose my way back home
Don’t send me to places far away
Where you won’t even remember me
Am I so bad, Mom?
Am I so bad, my Mom?”

When sometimes Papa swings me
Too high in the air,
My eyes search for you, hoping
You’ll come and hold me safe

I don’t tell him
But I get petrified
I don’t let it show
But my heart sinks
You know everything, don’t you mom?
You know everything, my Mom

I’ve never told you
How scared I am of the dark
How much I care for you
But you know, don’t you, Mom?
You know everything, my Mom.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You’re a dependable source of comfort,
You’re my cushion when I fall.
You help in times of trouble,
You support me whenever I call.

I love you more than you know,
You have my total respect.
If I had my choice of mothers,
You’d be the one I’d select!!

I Miss My Blackberry!! :(

I have been using the Blackberry Phone with Vodafone’s services for some time now & Words cant tell u how imp. a part of me, using the internet on it is.. I am a bit of an addict with the BB Messenger, also use Word Press App to connect with you guys!

Amongst others i use Facebook for Blackberry, UberSocial for Blackberry (For Twitter), Whatsapp & a host of all other such applications!

When i bought the BB Torch & activated the Vodafone BB Plan, it was mainly started for the Emails & BBM.. but the quick ease of Living a Parallel Social Life with the Super Smart Phone took me in fully! My Phone is more like a Family Member to me.. The Poems i write & share with you, are drafted through my Phone as it gives me convinience to write my head quick & easy before i publish the final draft.. Same is the case for increasing my vocabulary as well.

Internet today & more so the Mobile Internet has given us busybee’s an opportunity to crack a joke, be naughty, flirt around & Prank with Close Friends & Family who may not be necessarily near you physically but are close to you. Facebook pioneered in it, as after Graduation & because of Reasons like Distance & a Busy Work Life.. it enabled us to cherish their special moments, Think using the internet with the tap of your thumb & being in touch, interacting with loved ones is at an all new level of Ease.

Using Twitter via the Uber Social app of Vodafone driven Internet also allowed me to interact with My Dear acquaintance turned Friend in the very Beautiful & Charming Minissha Lamba! Now the fact that she’s just a touch away, albeit sitting in her Workplace Mumbai or Shooting Elsewhere in the World, i know am just a click away.. & so does she!

A Lot of My Friends who are now living abroad & from the Bottom of my Heart am really sorry to, for not being in touch but always wished to.. The Connection is back up because of the Mobile Internet! Can there be a Better Feeling Ever?? Answer is a resounding Yes, When it enables the human within us to flirt around with the opposite sex gently or pushing it depending upon the medium! Confronting People who dislike your friends & call them names on a medium like Twitter & engage in trolling.. even though you may never ever meet them in reality! That’s the Power of Mobile Internet for me.. 😉 ;P

Yes! Here comes a Bummer.. My Blackberry Torch Crashed, Display not working, Phone was hung.. :(( Its been 3 days already without it, as it is under warranty & gone to its makers for Repair/Replacement, and, can you believe it Am already Missing it big time!!

Blackberry fellas.. Plz give me my big part of SocialLife (Fast Mobile Internet) back quickly!! Please..
