Cakes, Cookies & Wine...

Cakes, Cookies and Wine
Make this festive season divine!
But amidst all the merriment, do we stop to think about our waistlines?

This is not to put a dampener in your festive cheer
Or me pretending to be a seer

But just something to make you stop and think
Before you embark on an uncontrolled binge

A huge slice of Mama's homemade rich plum cake
How many calories in that one intake?

300 to 400 I'd say would be the range
To wolf down more than one slice now are you game?

The pretty frosted cookies that we munch on with so much glee
In just one, 200 would be the minimum calories

And oh what about a decadent glass of red wine?
25 calories per ounce, and you thought drinking a whole bottle was calorie free and totally fine!

You can merrily do all of the above
If you action your plan for burning the extra energy does not collapse like a house of cards when shoved!

You'll say- Go away I'm only feasting for this one day
Who cares as tomorrow I vow not to be led astray!

It's little indulgences like these
When controlled and in proportion you can do as you please

So watch what you eat
Or you'll have to exercise like a freak
To burn all the extra fatty treats
So much for me ruining your feast!

Merry X-mas my calorie conscious friends!

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 …
