CALL AND LIVE



After pondering for a long time, Azad decided to make the call to the suicide prevention center,before taking the final step-There was nothing to lose anyway.

With gun in one hand and a suicide slip in the other, he dialed.

An electronic voice immediately came on line:

“Hi! Thank you for calling Self-Destruct Prevent Center.”

“ Press one if you plan to use poison, two for gun, three for knife, four for drowning…”

Amused at this, Azad pressed two.

“Press one if you are neurotic, two if psychotic, three if bi-polar, four if OCD……”

Slightly irritated, Azad continued by selecting an option.

“Press one if gay, two if bisexual, three if transvestite and four if none of above…”

So on it went till finally a human voice came online, “Good morning, sir, how may I hinder you?”

“You have hindered me sufficiently already… I am now toying with the idea of homicide!”

“Glad to have been of help, sir. Unfortunately, homicide is not our specialty, sir.”

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...

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.
