Extreme Weather

The extreme weather has brought heavy rains and snowfall. The copious amounts of water collected in low-laying ares has immersed the roads and parkways. In some areas there has been snow, which never used to get any and some parts of the planet are experiencing temperatures which are unprecedented. We have to take all this unusual weather patterns into serious account now and take action to prevent further deterioration to earth’s atmosphere.

But who is to instigate these changes? Who will be taking the lead? On individual basis we all can do our bit. But we do need the governments of leading countries, which have high carbon emissions rates to take some constructive decisions. Are we willing to cut back on our usage of fossil fuels?

Laboratory

“Come on over, I am taking you all to show you my new hi-tech laboratory” The voice of the speaker was filled with pride. The pride was justified as it was a piece of noble architecture. All beautiful angles and arches. The interior was even more impressive. A great display of top of the range equipment adorned the laboratory shelves and tables.

” What is your area of interest?”one of the visitors asked.

” I am working on a number of projects here. But my most favored project is researching the cure for a type of disease which has been discovered recently “

“Which disease is that?” Asked the same person.

“I am researching the cure for loss sensible and reasonable thinking process by otherwise sane adults, under the influence of social media” In fact it is magnified to such an extent that they start behaving like imbeciles.

All the visitors were lost for words. One of them took out his phone and updated his Facebook status.

Nightmare or dreams

I dream of the grand halls, gleaming marble

Being welcomed warmly by the hosts like royalty

A smile plastered on my face, hiding the fears

Of failure and tripping up in my way to the dias

I come up and face all those waiting for me there

Am I the representative of the masses gathered

Or am I the one responsible of the running of the

Affairs of this grandiose setup, the one in charge

This thought is enough to jerk me out of that very

Uncomfortable and uncharacteristic dream at once

The burdens of this liability can wreck your peace

So dreaming of power and grandeur are not for me

Dreams which are a derivative of a desire to fix

The issues which we face today or a wish to be rid of them

The unexpected happening

 

Jane was sitting and working on her laptop in a street side bistro. A slight cough intruded on her concentration. As she turned around, a man was standing behind her. Jane gave him a curious look. Something seemed strange about him. “May I help you?” She asked. “I am the representative of a pet food company, I was wondering if you would like to try our brand of pet food for your dog?”The man explained and tried to give a can of dog food to her. “But, I don’t have a dog or any pet for that matter” Jane clarified. “So this dog isn’t yours” He asked. “Which dog?” “This cute little guy sitting near you” replied the man.

Jane looked around, she didn’t see any dog, cute or otherwise near them. She began to think that this man was playing a practical joke on her. She forced out a laugh and said ” I think you are trying to trick me into some sort of prank, there is no dog around here that I see” The man looked incredulous, ” What do you call this?” He was pointing to a spot in front of her. Jane looked down and said that there was nothing there. ” Nothing! This is nothing?” He stooped down an in an instant he had picked up a small, unique looking dog from the pavement, into his arms! The dog licked his hand with a tiny pink tongue and gave a small bark. Jane didn’t know what to believe. This man had, to her mind conjured the dog out of thin air!

Jane was amazed and bewildered at the same time. She had to believe the evidence of her own eyes and she knew that it wasn’t possible to just imagine the dog out of thin air.

Mitigating circumstances

What do you mean, it was a mixup? How can you cook this instead of the five course dinner I ordered? she demanded. The woman was besides herself with anger. There was a number of gourmet pizzas arrangement on the kitchen table, ready to be cooked and served piping hot to the guests. The chef hired for catering the party tried to explain the mitigating circumstances behind the mixup but she was so busy berating him that it was difficult to get a word in. Her tirade laced with calumny and insults was making the matters worse.

“Hey, Tracy” intervened her husband in a calming manner. “There has to be an intelligent solution to this problem. Let’s think and work out something before the guests start arriving” ” Sir, if I may” the chef tried to offer his opinion again. “Yes, go ahead” said the husband, gesturing his wife to listen to the poor guy. ” Sir if you could tell your guests that today is a theme party tonight and today’s theme is Italy, then if we serve gourmet pizza in all the different flavors of Italy, they will think it is great fun”

I have a dream

I have a dream that I deem

Has the power to change us all,

If we could just adapt ourselves to it

Being affable and kind, Loving and thoughtful

And treat each other with due consideration

Not to be adamant in our demand of unjust return

It need not be a chore but a choice of our good nature

To be the best that we can be, with the generosity and good will

The opportunity

An opportunity has come my way

To get mega rich very very quick

All I need to do is to spend a dollar

Buy a Lottery tick and wait for my luck

Though this waiting is an onerous burden

I have a feeling my luck is going to change

It cannot remain like it is now, frozen in time

Since my twelfth birthday when I had won

The teddy bear in the roaming circus, that time

I hope that my dreams will not be shattered

Like shards of a glass, when the winners are

Announced and my name is not among them

The Associates

They had all gathered, the meeting about to start

The associate bringing the papers and the coffee

Their work was intricate, complex and demanding

It was the quest for justice for those without the means

To pay the price of justice and freedom that was their right

The lawyers would work for free, pro bono you will call it

Giving their time and attention, to device the defense tactics

For the victims of the system, the ones who had been denied

Their right to defend themselves because of dearth of monies

Their umbrage was addressed by the very people who had caused it

Ideology

Tell me what’s your ideology

Do you believe in equality

That we all are the same under

Our skin, whatever is its color

That we should be given the same

Level of service, that our place here

One is equally important as the other

That our society is a collection of us

Not just me and mine but we and our’s

Taking an avid interest in each other’s

Lives, welfare and cultures, we should

Make it a better place for all the people

Plan to see our way clearly and not

Get lost in the maze of hatred

What in the name of…….

What would you do, when faced with this situation? A bad parking, taking up all the space. What was this person imagining, did he owned the whole lot. Or that there will be no repercussions and nobody will deliver a rebuke for usurping the rights of others and blocking somebody’s way. Even if there was a vital reason for this deed, there were other ways to leave a car. Not blocking another car’s way! Or had the apricity of the mild climate had somehow deranged their senses.
