Happy Birthday Dearest Gran




It's my Grandma's birthday tomorrow and she's really difficult to please
So I thought of an innovative gift for her.
Will get this rhyme and a picture of me and gran printed and framed
Hope I'm able to please her.


My dearest darling sweetie pie Nanz
You are the super coolest gran
and I am forever your ardent fan

Your sense of humor is simply fab
You really know how to turn a moment into fun from dull and drab

You keep me grounded and down to earth
And have taught me how to respect everything's worth

From you I learnt always to wear a smile
Even if I have to walk shoeless for countless miles

You taught me how to keep a level head
Pursue my goals and forge ahead

Your emphasis on hard work has always stayed
Which is why every challenge I happily embrace

Even in the face of adversity
You radiate so much positive energy
That adversity says I picked the wrong one
And takes an about turn coz you leave it with no choice but to run

From you I learnt how to be grateful
Count my blessings and be joyful

Your knack for fixing things has me amazed
Our prayer machine is always unfazed

Where do you get so much patience from?
Never on your face have I seen a frown!

I simply love your silver grey hair
You spoil everyone with your incessant care

You never objected to my endearment nanzy-noodles
I'll love you forever oodles and oodles and oodles...

So happy birthday dearest Nani
Jo hain sabsey sayani, gyyani and from who I learnt how to do maan maani

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 …
