An opinion of the world around me

I wish

leave a comment »

I wish I was a charming prince,
But my mother says I already am,
I wish I was a handsome dude,
But my wife says I already am,
I wish I was the bravest man,
But my daughter says I already am,
I wish I was the funniest guy,
But then my pals laugh at my jokes,
I wish I was the role model,
But then junior want to be me,
I wish I was the happiest person,
And yes I do sleep in peace,
I think all my wish come true,
N I am the luckiest of them all.

I can hear it, true

leave a comment »

Sleep seems not in sight,
Rest, reads a word too tight,
Run away, sounds a whisper,
I can hear it, true.

So much happening around,
Things on verge of out’o’bound,
Like something gotta go,
I can sense it, true.

Impatience, anxiety, restlessness,
Trying to clear out the mess,
Mess about to turn messier,
I can feel it, true.

Everything was in my hands,
Somehow all slipped away,
I held my fist quite tight,
It couldn’t be tighter, true.

Grappiling in shallow waters,
Can anytime drown in now,
Try hard to hold on to some,
It’s nothing but air, true.

Mountain high, Low of abyss,
Swinging to and fro hard,
About to snap anytime now,
I can’t pause it, true.

However you may shake me,
I hang in there, a strong will,
Will fight hard, try comeback,
I can commit it, true.

True citizens of the Nation: Baniyas

leave a comment »

It’s an old thing. I had almost forgotten it. Yesterday, we were having a discussion when a friend of mine popped out, “I am a true citizen of the country”. When asked why, he stated coz he is a baniya by caste. I am a baniya too. So when he said that Baniyas are the true citizen of the nation. I couldn’t but spare a laugh.

During my 11th std, there was a teacher of mine who used to tease the baniya students among the lot with the same line. It went like, “Bete aap baniya ho? Are aap to desh ke saache nagrik ho” Dumbstruck when the student looked at him, he explained it further. Everyone would just roll with laughter.

A lot many of us might have read “Desh ke sabse aache nagrik baniye“, painted on the walls, baners, road sides etc. “देश के सच्चे नागरिक बनिए”. Offcially it means, become a true citizen of the nation but just for fun of it we read it like, “देश के सच्चे नागरिक, बनिए”. It’s the game of how u read it (with a pause after nagrik) so it becomes, baniyas are the true citizen of the nation.

So all you baniyas out there, remember, We are the true citizens of the country.
