c. On the flat to our right is Dr. Radhakrishnan. He is not an actual doctor though he calls himself one. Some PhD. His wife works in State Bank Mylapore branch and both their sons are studying in the US. On the right side is Mr.Venkataramani who is a retired government officer. His wife teaches in the school where my sister’s classmate’s husband also teaches. Their daughter stays in Anna Nagar and visits them every fortnight. I wonder why she did not come yesterday.

Farewell

Posted by Sowmya:) on July 18, 2011

My post for the July Klash

 

Goodbye bills and nasty ills

I will never worry about you again

Goodbye seconds and leftover chicken

Now I can feed the entire nation

 

Goodbye heat and unfulfilled treats

I will now have silk under my feet

Goodbye buses and crowded trains

And to all the daily pains

 

No more waiting in line or trembling for favors benign

I will just click and snap to get a solitaire fine

No more nine to five seven days a week

Luck, laughter and lust will make the day mine

 

I will gladly say ‘I do’

What if he is fifty-two

He has three houses and cars few

Not to mention the swimming pool blue

 

So I have compromised

Few years for the wealth desired

I am happy and signing

Here is to new beginnings
