A SEDUCTIVE TALE




Impatiently, Rani nudged her sleepy husband, who sat up in bed, protesting.

“What do you want now, uh?”

“Vinod, I want some bright ideas from you, lazy oaf! How do I make my boss select me for that plum Singapore posting?”

She sighed with pleasure as she allowed her fantasies to soar, imagining herself in Singapore-with or without hubby-that was secondary.

“Have you asked him yet?”

“Yes, but he is kinda non-committal-merely smiles and says that he has to choose among 2 or 3 others.”

It was Vinod’s turn to nudge her with a sly smile, “Maybe he wants...er… Some favors from you.”

“Chee!  Do all males want that only from women?”

After some time, she asked hesitantly, “What’s your opinion on this, Vinod? After all, once you proposed wife swapping to me!”

Vinod shrugged, “I needn’t know at all…if you want the posting so much…”

Then he added, by way of a hint:
“I would love the Singapore posting too…after all; I am a free lancer-can work from anywhere.”

Rani fought hard not to show her delight.

A few days later.

Rani came back from work and slumped wearily into a chair.

Vinod putting his arms around her asked with concern, “What happened, darling? Any problem at work?”

“No problem, except that your suggestion didn’t work out on expected lines.”

“What happened? Didn’t you…Er…hint him clearly enough?”

Rani fumed, “I did what any shameless woman would normally do in such cases. But he wasn’t buying it- that idiot!”

Then, turning towards her handsome husband, she said, “Vinod, my boss gave me a very strong hint in turn.”

Hugging her husband, Rani added, her voice full of hope, “It’s you that he wants on his bed, dear.”

RIGHT WRONG

Seeing her eyes glow in excitement,
Obviously though she has it all wrong,
I rush to grab the correction opportunity,

Till I have another look at the gleam in her eyes.

Hell, I think, let me be wrong a hundred times over,
If only to preserve that glorious joy,

Rather than prove her wrong
And watch her enthusiasm wither.

A RUMMY TALE

As he lay there, wallowing in stale rum and self-pity, know not how long;
The red-eyed monster sprang up suddenly from the brimming liquor;
Gulping down a glass of liquid fire, he roared, “Now! Shoot her now!”
“She deserves no pity- who has let you down so badly.”

Drowning in rum, he attempted to raise his head,
Raising placatory hands to his personal devil,
“Now, now, let us not go there, so afar!
Remember, she used to be my cynosure till week last,
It’s just a pity that she was charmed by someone else.”

“Beware if you show any mercy to that unfaithful wretch!”
Growled the beast, spitting out shards of glass in disgust and adding,
“Be a man, take the sharpest knife and plunge it in her heartless heart.”

He cried out loud and pleaded with folded hands,
“No, no, can’t ever do that, please for Heaven’s sake, go away.”
“Then you leave me with no other option,” sighed the monster,
Stabbing him straight through the heart.

“Cardiac arrest due to excessive sorrow and stress”-

LOVELINESS

LOVELINESS

Loveliness is not all about physical beauty,
It is also
A smile shimmering through tear- stained eyes,
A widening grin ironing out an elder's wrinkles,
A mother's joy seeing her child eating well,
A couple embracing joyfully in reunion,
A calf jumping about in joy around mother cow,
And many more...
