The Story Of An Untold Paradise Kandarpur: Summers - Go Fish !

    The temperatures were rising, maybe a 100 to a 120 fahrenheit, the expression across the state of Odisha was that, "It's Hot !", while somewhere around 11.8 miles from Cuttack, things were looking otherwise for this one house out of 150 other houses. The reason wasn't good food, or great air conditioner, nor great entertainment gadgets, the reason was the experience of a lifetime.    For my Ajja ( Mom's father), what made him chirpier than usual were his kids and grand kids around his ranch during summer, the ranch, that he had built as a dream, thinking that some day in future, all his kids will stay there and would have enough room for additional innovations, if necessary. ( The things parents do for love..)   My Ajja was always an early riser since the days of his engineering education tenure, to when he joined the Indian Railways and served as a lead engineer for around 40-50 years of his entire career.

A Cup Of Tea

Says a lot
Makes me steal a thought
Or two..
Takes me through a journey of stories
Quiet a few..
Where conversations 
Made eyes giggle..
Where someone had no clue..
That their morning was slipping through..

A Cup of tea..
On a train..
With the hustle and bustle of 
Fellow passengers..
Who were strangers last night..
But now you are wondering..
When will her brother stop the fight...
And when the next stop comes..
Will the boy get his kite that flew right over..

A Cup of tea..
While chasing your baby
Your tea gets cold..
But you sip it at one gulp..
As you hold her tight..
When she puts up a fight..
Not to go to school..
As even you don't want to get her out of sight...

A Cup of tea..
With friends in town..
They end up waking up early..
And you smell the cardamom flavor..
The chatter goes louder with every sip..
You find it harder to keep away..
From the last tip of a remaining cookie..
While you ask your friend to make another
Cup of tea...
