Stars and Moon.



Since I can’t meet you soon,

I compare your beauty to stars and the moon.

Love is not something to be tied to a chain,

But staying away from you is full of pain.

Like daily comes and goes the tide,

You thought stays always by my side.

Like a shadow that to stay with you tries,

I am always around you in disguise.

Why check out?


When other dudes check you out,

It makes me want to shout.

It’s not your intentions I doubt,

But why you need to smile sporting a pout.

This might be getting too much hyped,

But understand I am not jealous types.

So continue your harmless checking out,

I am sure we can work it out.

Cold and Flu.

So strongly you sneeze,

That it feels like a strong breeze.

Careless you are about your health,

You treat it like an unaccounted wealth.

Such bad you have caught a cold,

It is making you clean bowled.

I hope you fix quickly your flu and cold,

Else I will have to come and give you a scold.

 (When bae has a terrible cold and flu,

And you have no idea what to do,

and you are feeling helpless without a clue.)

Speed Internet… Fast WiFi.

I wish we are blessed with a powerful internet,

It just helps to keep everything under set.

After a long day of work and no rest,

Speaking to you is the only thing that motivate.

Listening to your voice I hardly get,

And when I can’t it makes my eyes wet.

Waiting for the day we can hug each other every day,

Till then it’s for uninterrupted internet I pray.

p.s- Perils of long distance relationship.

Dat Ass Though.

Blessed you are with a beautiful ass,

That can’t be ignored every time you pass.

Right and left it sways when you move,

Smooth it looks like the fly of a dove.

Round and soft it wiggles as you move,

Just a view and my heart start to groove.

A song should be played at full volume and bass,

All but nothing about your round smooth ass.

p.s- The advantage of long distance relationship- your partner can’t murder you when you do (Write) such stuff 😛

The girl who loved pouting.

Dimpy the dimple girl was really happy that day. Her father gifted her new android phone. Dimpy was a teen aged girl who likes any other teen ager instantly made her account on Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram and every other social media platform that one could possibly think of.

Her android connected her to the world but disconnected her to her near and dear ones. All day and all the time she would be busy with her new phone. She once was a playful girl who used to spend her entire day playing and jumping around from one place to other. But all these changed since the day she got her phone. Her parents her friends her teachers everyone tried to explain her about the ill effects of using too much phone. But Dimpy was one stubborn girl. She paid no heed to anyone and continued spending her time with her new phone. All day long she was busy texting; chatting, updating status, tweeting and most importantly she spent her time clicking selfies!!
Now as we all know that Dimpy the dimple girl was a mere teenager, and we also know how easily teenagers get bored of anything. So that happened, not even a month passed when Dimpy started getting bored of her phone. A time so came that Dimpy even stopped using her phone except to call her friends or to receive calls from her friend. This made everyone happy as Dimpy was now back to being that happy and playful girl that she once was.

Another few months passed and everything was back to being so normal as if nothing had ever happened. Dimpy was browsing through a magazine when she saw something strange.
“What is this girl doing??”, she thought.
Dimpy saw a girl taking selfie, there was nothing wrong or weird about that, but the girl taking selfie was making funny kind of face. A really funny pose which Dimpy never saw before. The girl was doing this funny thing with her lips as if she was trying to kiss some imaginary person who was hanging mid air upside down.

Blunder had been made; seed of curiosity had been sowed! Dimpy the dimple girl, who was a silly teenage girl, did what any other girl of her age would have done. She took out her phone from her bag, turned on the front camera and *CLICK*.
Next moment her selfie or should be called her duck faced selfie was posted to almost every social media site.

Then what happened was very obvious! Her pictures were flooded with likes from her friends, her friends of friend and even from people who Dimpy had no idea who they were. Dimpy’s face brightened up!
“OMG OMG OMG I never got so many likes ever for any of my pictures!!”, Dimpy thought to herself.
And so the selfie marathon for Dimpy began. Not just any selfie, “Duck faced pouted selfies” they were.
She clicked selfie while eating, before going for her class, during her class, after her class, while playing, while studying and you won’t believe this she even clicked selfie before going to bed. Some even said that Dimpy even in her dreams were clicking selfie!
Endless “Likes” on her pictures acted as encouragement for her to click more and more selfies.

Days went by and Dimpy’s birthday came. All her friends came and while they were busy playing all sorts of cool games, Dimpy was busy clicking selfies with all of them. Yes the same “Duck faced pouted selfies”.
Now we should learn this very important lesson. Too much obsession about anything is bad. Dimpy was so much obsessed with clicking selfies that even for her birthday wish, she wish something silly and stupid.
As she blew her birthday candles she wished “Please birthday fairy make my lips into a permanent pout so that I am always ready for a selfie.”

Things as silly and imaginary like birthday wishes never comes true. But that day was different, I don’t know if Dimpy was lucky or unlucky but her wish did come true!
Next morning she got up, still tired for partying till late at night. She went to brush her teeth, half sleepy. But then!! The moment she tried to put brush in her mouth, she couldn’t. She opened her eyes wide not knowing what just happened. She was stunned!
Her lips were pouted and just pouted they were permanently pouted. Just the way she had wished for last night.
Now normally anyone would have been worried and would have been panic stricken. Dimpy did not. In fact she did something unexpected, actually not that unexpected, she clicked a selfie!

Everyone was shocked! Her mother her father and even her pet dog was looking at Dimpy in shock. Dimpy couldn’t have cared less.
“It’s no big deal mommins.” she told her mother when asked about her lips.
Saying this stretched to grab the yummy pan cakes her mom had made. But the moment she tried to take a bite of it…she could not. Her lips were so pouted that it was not only difficult to take a bite of pancakes but it was impossible to even put it in her mouth. Dimpy became sad. Pan cakes were her favourite.
“But atleast I can take awesome selfies.” Dimpy thought and thus consoled herself.

Dimpy was very excited to go to school that day. Not only because of her newly acquired pout but also because it was her singing competition that day. If there was anything that Dimpy loved more than clicking selfies, then that was singing. She was well prepared for the competition that day; she had been practicing hard for it too.
So being all prepared she went up the stage to perform in front of the judges. She cleared her throat, calmed herself down and then started to sing. But what’s this!!! Dimpy no matter how hard she tried she was not able to sing. And to make the matter worse whatever she was able to sing was sounding like a frog’s croak. Dimpy the dimple girl’s eyes filled with tears and she got down from stage without even finishing her performance. She was heartbroken after that incidence.
“But atleast I can take awesome selfies.” Dimpy thought and thus consoled herself again.

When Dimpy returned back home she was surprised to see her maasi (maternal aunt). She was not able to attend Dimpy’s birthday party last night and so she came to wish her belated happy birthday. She also got her a lovely gift for her birthday. Her maasi knew how much Dimpy like blowing soapy bubbles, so she had gifted her a big bottle of soapy bubble. Dimpy got a big smile on her face. She instantly ran outside to her garden along with her gift, too impatient to and anxious to play with it.
She dipped the handle inside the soapy water and then as she was about to blow it…*pHhtttrrrr*. The bubbles were not forming properly. She was not able to blow the air out correctly, either she was blowing the air out too much or at times she was not able to even to puff the air properly. Poor Dimpy. What a bad day she was having, no pancakes, no singing and now she was not even able to enjoy her soapy bubbles properly.
“But atleast I can take awesome selfies.” Dimpy thought and thus consoled herself yet again.

Down and out Dimpy went inside her house. As she went inside her mother asked her to get freshen up as she was going to prepare cold coffee for everyone. Dimpy again cheered up and a big smile got pasted on her face. She quickly changed herself into fresh clothes and ran towards the dining table. A big glass of cold coffee topped with vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce. She closed her eyes and started to approach slowly towards that lovely sinful coffee. But as she tried to slurp the coffee…! She could not pull up the coffee as the straw was not fitting properly in between her lips. Dimpy was now shattered. She started crying like anything. Her mother her father her maasi everyone tried to console her but she was inconsolable this time.

That night after a very long time Dimpy did not click any selfie. She was lying awake on her bed thinking about the blunder she had made by wishing that silly wish of hers.
“I wish my wish gets taken back and my lips again become normal.”, Dimpy wished as she was trying to think what she will do next.
Luckily when Dimpy was wishing this a fairy was passing from outside her bedroom. She felt sad for Dimpy and so she secretly reversed the wish.
Next morning when Dimpy got up she was overjoyed to find that her lips were now again back to normal. Now she could easily brush her teeth, eat yummy pan cakes, she could sing properly again also she could enjoy blowing soap bubbles and her yummy cold coffee.
But most importantly Dimpy was happy because she now her lovely cute pink lips back. She still used to take selfies after this incidence but not with a duck faced pouted lips but by sporting her lovely smile and even lovelier dimples.

So why does onion makes us cry!!

So why does onion makes us cry?? According to what science says it is because

Onions produce the chemical irritant known as syn-propanethial-S-oxide. It stimulates the eyes’ lachrymal glands so they release tears. Scientists used to blame the enzyme allinase for the instability of substances in a cut onion.”

That’s one way to explain it, however there is another theory which is not only better but also interesting. Is it true? I don’t know and honestly I won’t bother myself with knowing if it’s true or not.

The story is…

Once upon a time there lived an old lady. She was so old that she could not have got any older and her hair could not have been any more whiter, And all she used to do was to cook and sleep.
One day she went to market to buy vegetables for cooking. She first bought Tomatoes. Then she bought Capsicum and at last she bought an Onion. She put all three of them in a small bag and started walking back home thinking what she was going to make out of these three.

While the old lad was on her way back home all the three veggies became friends! They promised to remain friends forever and beyond forever and well beyond forever that too. Silly and innocent vegetables were still unaware of what was going to happen to them.

That evening after lot of thinking Old lady finally decided that she will be making Tomato soup. She pulled Mr Tomato out and before Mr Capsicum and Mr Onion could realize what was going on old lady pierced a knife through Mr Tomato instantly killing him! Both of them now realised what exactly was going on and what their fate had in store for them. That night after the old lady went to sleep after enjoying tomato soup made of Mr Tomato, both Mr Capsicum and Mr Onion cried and mourned for the death of their friend.

Next day old lady decided to cook Capsicum curry. And yes as you all have guessed she pulled Mr Capsicum out and WHAAK!!! Mr Capsicum was no more. Such was the force with which old lady sliced him that all of tiny white mentos that Mr Capsicum had eaten were scattered and thrown everywhere. All Mr Onion could do was watch and cry silently.

That night Mr Onion could not sleep. He knew that he was next. He also knew that there is nothing that he can do about it, he was worried that who will remember him when he dies and most importantly will his death matter to anyone!!
He was busy in these thoughts when suddenly a bright light flashed and he saw Miss ladyfingers the queen of vegetables standing in front of him!
“I can understand your pain Mr Onion, and I am here to help you”, said Miss ladyfingers.
Mr Onion was mesmerized by the beauty of Queen asked how was she planning to help him.
Then Miss ladyfingers spurned her magic wand and said that now who ever will kill My Onion or any of his brothers sisters or siblings, they them self-will cry and mourn Onion’s death.

And so next day when Old lady sliced Mr Onion she saw tears flowing out of her eyes and she mourned the death of Mr Onion.

Ever since that day anyone anywhere who kills Onions has to mourn his death himself and all because of Vegetable queen Miss ladyfingers.
