Gujarati Kavita

Ack:- Jay Purohit

Dress-maa tame sara lago chho,
Punjabi maa tame pyara lago chho;
Sari-ma koi-di tamne joya nathi,
Maate tame Kunwara lago chho.

Jivan maa JAS nathi,
Prem maa RAS nathi;
Dhandha maa KAS nathi,
Javu chhe swarg maa,
pan eni koi BUS nathi

Dil naa dardo ne pinaro shu jane,
prem naa rivajo ne jamano shu jane;
Chhe ketli taklif kabar maa,
Te uparthi phool muknaro shu jane!

Zindagi ne jiv-vani Filsufi samji lidhi,
Je khushi aavi jivan ma,
aakhri samji lidhi!

Shu karu fariyaad tari,
Fariyaad ma yaad chhe Fari fari ne yaad tari,
Ej mari fariyaad chhe!

Tu hase chhe jyare jyare,
tyare tyare tara gaal ma khada pade chhe.
Hu vicharu chhu betho betho,
ke mara sivay aa khada-ma ketla pade chhe!

Doobta jeevan na tame swaas chho,
kahu kem ke tame kaik ‘khaas’ chho.

Tame phool nahi pan jamin par ugta ghaas chho,
sachu kahu, tame ek moto Traas chho.

Loko kahe-chhe ke – Hasya tena ghar vasya!
Parantu e kon jane chhe ke –
Ghar vasya pachhi ketla hasya.?

Horror of Appraisal Letter

Ack:- Vaishali Ghogane

There was a contest in a company to write a fictional story for 500 words max which would start with the line “On a dark and foggy night, a small figure lay huddled on the railway tracks leading to the Bangalore station ”

This is what one professional wrote for the contest……. surprisingly, it was adjudged the best short story ;;))

On a dark and foggy night, a small figure lay huddled on the railway tracks leading to the Bangalore station. At once I was held back to see someone in that position during midnight with no one around. With curiosity taking the front seat, I went near the body and tried to investigate it. There was blood all over the body which was lying face down. It seemed that a ruthless blow by the last train could have caused the end of this body which seemed to be that of a guy of around my age. Amidst the gory blood flow, I could see a folded white envelope which was fluttering in the midnight wind. Carefully I took the blood stained envelope and was surprised to see the phrase “appraisal letter” on it. With curiosity rising every moment, I wasted no time in opening the envelope to see if I can find some details about the dead guy. The tag around the body’s neck and the jazzy appraisal cover gave me the hint that he might be a software engineer. I opened the envelope to find a shining paper on which the appraisal details where typed in flying colors. Thunders broke into my ears and lightening struck my heart when I saw the appraisal amount of the dead guy!!!!! My God, it was not even, as much as the cost of the letter on which the appraisal details were printed…. My heart poured out for the guy and huge calls were heard inside my mind saying “no wonder, this guy died such a miserable death”… As a fellow worker in the same industry, I thought I should mourn for him for the sake of respect and stood there with a heavy heart thinking of the shock that he would have experienced when his manager had placed the appraisal letter in his hand. I am sure his heart would have stopped and eyes would have gone blank for few seconds looking at the near to nothing increment in his salary.

While I mourned for him, for a second my hands froze to see the employee’s name in the appraisal letter… hey, what a strange co-incidence, this guy’s name is same as mine, including the initials. This was interesting. With some mental strength, I turned the body upside down and found myself fainted for a second. The guy not only had my name, but also looked exactly like me. Same looks, same built, same name…. it was me who was dead there!!!!!!!! While I was lost in that shock, I felt someone patting on my shoulders. My heart stopped completely, I could not breathe and sprung in fear to see who was behind……… splash!!! Went the glass of water on my laptop screen as I came out of my wild dream to see my manager standing behind my chair patting on my shoulder saying, “wake up man? Come to meeting room number two. I have your appraisal letter ready

Men and Women…

Ack:- Nirav Desai

Men:

1. All men are extremely busy.

2. Although they are so busy, they still have time for women.

3. Although they have time for women, they don’t really care for them.

4. Although they don’t really care for them, they always have one around.

5. Although they always have one around them, they always try their luck with others.

6. Although they try their luck with others, they get really pissed off if the woman leaves them.

7. Although the woman leaves them they still don’t learn from their mistakes and still try their luck with others.

Women:

1. The most important thing for a woman is financial security.

2. Although this is so important, they still go out and buy expensive clothes.

3. Although they always buy expensive clothes, they never have something to wear.

4. Although they never have something to wear, they always dress beautifully.

5. Although they always dress beautifully, their clothes are always just “an old rag”.

6. Although their clothes are always “just an old rag”, they still expect You to compliment them.

7. Although they expect you to compliment them, when you do, they don’t Believe you… :-)

Gujarat textbooks hail Hitler

BJP rebels may have called Modi a ‘Hitler’ during an anti-Modi protest, but Germany’s infamous dictator continues to be glorified in social science textbooks printed by the Gujarat State Board of School Textbooks.

Last year, a city-based NGO Prashant filed a petition demanding withdrawal of the Class IX textbook representing Adolf Hitler as a nationalist. Israel’s Councilor General David Zohar Zoshine had also visited Ahmedabad, met state education secretary P Pernneerveel and demanded withdrawal of the text.

Wisden acquires Hawk-Eye

Hawk-Eye, the pioneer cricket ball trajectory tracking technology, has been bought by the Wisden Group, which plans to foray into other sports as well.

Cricinfo quoted Mark Getty, a director of Wisden Group, saying that following the acquisition they would be eyeing entry into tennis and other major international sports. ”In a relatively short space of time, Hawk-Eye has achieved a major impact in the way cricket is presented and appreciated by fans around the world. It already has enormous recognition in the sport and is now making a similar impact in the world of tennis.

”Wisden is cricket’s most famous publisher and Cricinfo is the game’s largest global website, so the addition of Hawk-Eye as the most innovative technology provider in sports broadcasting is a development that will reinforce the group’s presence and influence,” he said.

Paul Hawkins, who masterminded Hawk-Eye, will remain the managing director of Hawk-Eye Innovations.

Hawk-Eye’s increasing use saw it being applied in all four tennis Grand Slam events.
