Monsoon ramblings

Do you consider the months of incessant rain
A very big pain
Does the roaring thunder
Make your life go asunder

Or are you one of those
Who wait for the downpours next dose?
Just one look at an overcast sky
To some brings immense joy

The most awaited season
That makes you want to celebrate without any reason
Does the onset of the monsoon
Make your heart sing a different tune

Though riddled with uncertainty
Yet reasons for its importance can be found aplenty
Will it flood and endlessly pour
Or will the spectre of drought be knocking at our door?

While the met makes predictions
The Rain Gods point in other directions                
So you’re more often than not caught unaware
Don’t despair some days in life are always unfair

My constant companion, my umbrella
He’s a jolly good fellah!!!
Protecting me from the wet
This season’s most prized asset

Spotting a rainbow
Makes your soul seem to glow
You instantly smile
And feel life’s worthwhile

The colours of the VIBGYOR
Never seem to loose allure
And all impure gets washed away in their lure
Everything seems to fades in its grandeur

As everything looks washed and clean
The earth wears a cover of green   
We hope you enjoy the rains
And may the best be ordained

Congratulations on completing a decade at work!!!

I had one of my ex-project managers complete a decade of service at work so wrote the below poem to congratulate him on this momentous occasion.

Heartiest congratulations! A decade's time for a big celebration!
Ten illustrious years, For your glorious career we all cheer!
A decade of service, Your wealth of experience- priceless.
Countless challenges triumphed, Your boundless energy has everyone pumped.
Your inclusive leadership style, Makes everyone feel worthwhile.
Empowering us to excel, And chart paths novel.
An action oriented leader, Who is more than a manager.
A mentor and motivator, Whom to emulate we aspire.
Working with you has been truly inspiring and awesome, Best wishes for many more magnificent years to come!

Want to express gratitude to your doctor for everything he/she has done for you and are at a loss of words? Why not use instant poet's poem below to express your thanks? 

Doctors are guardian angles, Incarnations of God on earth to cure people
Your tireless energy and positive countenance, Like a beacon to a sinking ship bring joy in abundance.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, You are the best! A class apart!
Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.

Eulogy for my Grandmother (Nani)

One of the hardest things a person has to do in life is write and give an eulogy on the passing away of a loved one. Last week, my Nani left for her heavenly abode and today was the prayer meeting on the Chautha (4th Day). 

I'm sharing with all of you the eulogy in the form of a poem I wrote last night for her on behalf of all her grandchildren. I share this here because paying tribute to a dear one and speaking to a packed room full of people, while keeping your emotions in check is not easy, however is inevitable.

Thank you so much for joining us in prayer this afternoon to pay homage to our beloved Nirmal Khanna. A mother is more precious than any other person. A grandmother, being a mother twice over, is closest to her grandchildren. On behalf of her grandchildren whom she adored: Ujjwal, Kamakshi, Dhruv, Akshiena and Vyomi, this poem is dedicated to our iron lady with a will of steel.
(My Nani- Nirmal Khanna)

Your loving arms Were our tranquil oasis Your radiant smile Exuded a halo …
