Happy Happy Day ;)

Life is full of surprises
Get amazed at each one
As you sail through
Make sure you live
While you make through
It’s about all about You
Your happiness reflects
In your surroundings
When the glow falls on you
There will be storms
And many hurdles
See them as challenge
And surprise them
Cause whether you live or die
You face it and fly
Happy Poetry Day to All!!!

It looked like rainbow to me.. ;)

The day was so dull 
with traffic so null
Loved driving full
One place to the other
I got to be still
When I saw the trouble
The database was chill
And Server on top of hill
The restart did the kick
Login worked like a stick
Day was slow and steady
When I thought of getting ready
As I drove by
The sky was clear and high
A rush of fire like clouds
Like a rocket in the sky
Some said stormy 
Like a tornado on the way
But when I looked at it
It looked like rainbow to me

I am riding with the moment… :)

The clouds are crazy
And the wind very breezy
I see the sun a bit fuzzy
As he can’t come out so easy
I love the hide and seek
The clouds and the sun playing!
As the season changing
As the years are passing
I feel a bit of tingling
The happiness is clinging
The friends and the loved ones
Holding me so near
The joy for togetherness
Have no end in the universe
Each birthday passing
Gives me a satisfaction
The journey of life
I am riding with the moment
Taking them along with me
Not worrying about tomorrow
Yet living in the present
Embracing my kids
Who make my life worth
With the man whom they call dad
It’s beautiful to live this life
Where I am still a passer-by 😉
Waiting for each station to pass by!!!

Alpha-Floral Carpet

I had a great opportunity to translate a Malayalam poem into English.

Though I am a believer that anything written in original language has it’s own essence and often when we try to translate it to other languages it looses it’s essence and depth.

Having said that, when someone asked me to do this, I took that as a honor and here it is… I hope I am able to justify 1% of it at least 🙂 in awe of my readers !!!!

When words and alphabets started chasing me,
To write a Onam song … 
I couldn’t write…
But before they could get upset with me 
I arranged them one by one unfolding to a floral carpet…… 
And then they didnt bother me at all …. 🙂

The malayalam version of it is below for the Malayalam Readers

കുറേ അഷരങ്ങൾ ഒച്ചവെച്ചു കൊണ്ട് എന്റെ പിറകെ നടന്നു ഒരോണ പാട്ടെഴുതാൻ എനിക്ക് എഴുതാനേ പറ്റിയില്ല പക്ഷെ അവർ പിണങ്ങുന്നതിനു മുൻപ് എല്ലാവരേയും പെറുക്കി പെറുക്കി വെച്ച് ഒരു അത്തപ്പൂക്കളം ഉണ്ടാക്കി പിന്നെ അവർ മിണ്ടിയിട്ടേയില്ല

I was much better person…!

I was much better person

When I was alone

I was much better person
When I had friends
Yet not associated with one
I was much better person
When I was like a free bird
I was much better person
When I was not related to anyone
I was much better person
When I was like a third eye
I was much better person
To see everything from outside
I was much better person…

Yes! I was much better person!!!

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy… :)

Meeting poets from all across the world is like drinking wine from different regions and places. The essence is same though the taste may differ yet, you get that joy and excitement as you meet them, listen to them and know them.

So far I have met poets from Northern India and from USA and Canada. One common thing among all is that they all are dreamer and connect with reality, whether it is pain, happiness or even naughtiness it all comes in the form of words and expressions out so clear that any reader or listener will walk through the poet in those paths.

Today I happen to meet Prof Madhusoodanan Nair – who is a renowned poet, scholar and teacher, well accepted nationally and by Keralites everywhere in the world. I have heard his poetry in Malayalam through my dear friend Vinod.

One thing I always realized and experienced is that, poetry no matter in what language it is, anyone who is close to earth, mother nature can relate to it and understand it.

It was a nice meetup organized by community members where we got to hear the poet as what inspired him to write certain poems and what are his thoughts with related to today’s generation and the life of NRI’s (Non-Residents of India).

Every poet gave importance to teaching the language to the new generation – which I so mesmerize as I remember poet Dr Waseem Barevely who also preached and showed the steps that he has taken to bring the importance of language Urdu.

Love to feel the nature, and as I was listening to these things I so felt thankful for being close to mother nature where I am spending more time to see the clouds and feel them as what they are saying and at the same time at night looking for my beloved Moon who is mostly surrounded by the stars… and so many other things which keeps the stress away from me.

Life is worth if you can still feel those words which the poet was reciting, it gave me goosebumps and when I feel the air while driving back home with that thought in mind… Life is beautiful indeed.

I felt it was worth listening to poems in Malayalam by the poet himself who has written it. It amazes how a poet’s thought lingers in mind and the processing he/she goes when the outcome comes out, everyone relates to it in their own way as they have experienced life differently.

An awesome, thoughtful evening….!
