Flowers

The most striking feature of flowers is their color. You will find them laughing in the mid of a greenish world. They make you happy. Indian Roses (the deep red one) have always fascinated me. Six or seven years back my home had many Rose plants, almost 30-35. They were very small in size and were grown in an unorganized way. So if a person would enter in my home ground, he would rarely get any notice of those roses. But, come and sit, hey what is this, are there any rose plants around -- this was the common sentence of any new comer. I always took the privilege to become guide, and never I forgot to mention that those Rose plants were my work. My mom, papa and sister used to give a mysterious smile after mine that statement, but I was very fast to switch to other matter. In fact those Rose plants were hard work of my papa, mother and sister. I used to water them in the condition when the moral pressure on me becoming unbearable.
In those years once a person came to my house for selling some plants. My father was discussing with him about those plants and their cost. I don't know what occured to me, and without taking papa jee's consent I bought some plants by devaluing my pockets by about Rs.25. The sells person told me that this plant comes with flower having amazing scent, amazing colours and many things. I also joined his side and my family members simply kept silence. There was deep anguish and the after effect caused me to do plantation. It was raining and in the mid of that time I had to do plantation. Anyway the plantation was done. After several months plants(two) grew up. I have planted them near house gate. After some days flowers also come. They were of white color with no linkage of scent of any kind. There was no scent, no tracable beauty, nothing special. I had nothing to say. After some time I (and other family members) stopped taking care of it and it started guiding its life on own. No sentiment was linked to it and it was cut randomly sometimes, so as to contain its development.
May passed, June passed. The scorching rays of Sun caused much damage to plants at my home. Raining in July, August caused further damages. My mom was not able to find flowers for her puja. My colony which used to get flower from us were also clueless. However, they suddenly found my old plant standing happily at its place. There were thousands of white small flowers embellished in its body. The plant managed to fight all ill effects and was waving modestly with slow wind. My mom and colony persons pluck some flowers and used them for worshipping goddess Durga.
I was watching this. The book that I was reading became very vivid.

Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette

Now I'm a fella with a heart of gold,
The ways of a gentleman,
I've been told.
The kind of a guy that wouldn't even harm a flea
But if me and a certain character met
That guy that invented that cigarette
I'd murder that son of a gun in the first degree.
Well not because I don't smoke myself
I don't reckon they'll harm your health
I've smoked all my life and I'm not dead yet.
But nicotine
slaves are all the same,
At a pettin' party or a poker game,
Everything's must stop while they smoke a cigarette.

Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! that cigarette.
Puff! Puff! Puff!
And if you smoke yourself to death,
Tell Saint Peter at the golden gate
That you hate to make him wait,
But you got to have another cigarette.

Now in a game of chance the other night,
Old Dame Fortune was doing me right.
The kings and queens just kept on comin' round
I played 'em hard and I bet 'em high
But my bluff didn't work on a certain guy
He kept on r…

Archie and Betty ... or Archie and Veronica

So with whom Archie should go finally ? The 600th edition's cover page suggests it could be Veronica !!!






















Oh! don't say that this is their personal life, personal decision ... and one should not interfere, intervene !!! Veronica seems to be happily blogging, and cheerfully oozing her wavy words. But lo and behold, the whole blogger world is damn serious about this issue, and internet is flooded out of discussion - with whom Archie should marry !

He should marry otherwise "Bahan Jee" (sister kinda) type Betty or should he go for the "Kat" Veronica?

Its 2009. Its 68 years of Archie Andrews. He is still young, still to marry ... thanks because he is a comics character. But he is not just a comics character. Along with Veronica, Betty, Jughead, Reggie, Dilton and all of Riverdale and Riverdale High School - Archie develops on your imagination. In your teens you may have been fan of this team, your father in his teens may be fan of this team and perhaps may be your…

Sowmalya on Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya

Sowmu, my friend and the song Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya of Shree 420.
If we think from the premises of this film this song resembles the pain one is going through during the parting times.

But if we see the song from the beginning the song is being sung by a group of street people who in general does not have anything to loose or not much a thing to gain .Their singing the song indicates their casual interaction with life and easy acceptance of any good or bad. One big teaching which comes from this film is HOPE. Which reflects in a couple of plots of the film e.g. the 100 rupees flat sequence , the hope to get everything back for the poor, getting the love back after all the miss happenings.As we know this film is the journey of a small town guy coming to a big town and lost his naive ness partly due to the circumstances and partly by his inclination to be rich early (which in general every body have) .The first part of the song tries to make him remember the pure soled human with which he …
