Monsoon Showers

So there I was, standing one day in the dazzling sunlight of the courtyard, combing my beard. A passing summer shower suddenly tattooed the dusty lawn. The air was filled with the fragrance of the heady mixture of earth, rain and sunlight. I stood happily in the courtyard, breathing in the smells waiting, like my herbs and jungles, for the grand arrival of the rains, thinking of nothing, my mind flying free like a floating leaf. There was a sudden gust of wind. Behind it came a luminous drizzle from the rainclouds that rushed across the sunny sky. I wanted to leap into the joyous wind, the rain and the fleeing clouds. ‘Here I come!’ I jumped, my arms lifted, to touch the clouds. ‘Aha! Aha!’ I screamed. ‘Take me too!’

Mango Mania

Mangoes here, mangoes there,
the king of fruits is everywhere.
Some are sweet, some are sour,
but eating mango is never a bore.
Some go into jams, some into pickle,
either way the tastebuds tickle.
Some into jellies, some into juices,
or simply be eaten with salt on slices.
A tribute to all those grandmothers, and mothers who pass on the wonderful tradition, and art of mango-pickling.

Blooming Buds

O Youth! with song and laughter,
Go not so lightly by.
Have pity, and remember,
How soon thy roses die.

Clouds of Plagiarism

"The man who gets angry at the right things and with the right people, and in the right way and at the right time and for the right length of time, is commended."

The Malayalam blogosphere in recent times has been over-shadowed by protests against the gloomy clouds of plagiarism.
When the culprits could not respect the valuable sentiments of the original copyright owners, me too am moved to support the right people for the right things, and in the right way.
