Thanks to Dove, My braided hair is something I love!!!

Show me a girl who doesn't love long hair
Stylish braids hesitates to wear

Insists sporting a short mane is chic
And believes the whole fuss about lovely long hair is simply a marketing trick

I've been one of them since time immemorial
Spilt ends and me have a constant tussle.

Every time my hair would grow a little
The rough ends ensured the hairdressers snip to get rid of the prickle

Whenever  in school we had best braid competition
I'd shy away and cry coz having short hair I was always left out of the action!

 No amount of oiling or any other thing
Seemed to want my broken heart to mend

For beautiful hair is a girls best accessory
Of which I'd always been deprived of mercilessly

I've  always hated pretending to be content with wearing my hair short 
While others flaunted beautiful braids , with envy I could only watch!

Come college and the stresses of teenage life
My hair seemed to echo the strife 

Brittle and  completely damage prone
Looking at miss beautiful hair's  snazzy braids in college with longing made me moan 

I pretended not to care and in my efforts to be supercool 
I landed up doing further damage to my hair and  realized I was a fool

 I Spiked my hair and dyed it pink
After the initial shock and awe, my incessant falling hair made me think

Why should gorgeous damage free hair be a distant dream
Everyone deserves  to have a mane that rivals Rapunzel's sheen

Then began my search of  the perfect solution
Which would make my dream come true and I'd live forever in elation!

Loads of different products I tried
All dashed my hopes but I kept on swimming against the tide

Then one fine day I signed up for the Dove spilt end rescue trial
And kept my fingers crossed and hoped the outcome would be blissful

It's been a week and I'm already thrilled
Click on this link to look at Dove's new spilt ends rescue range and you'll understand how my dreams of having the perfect braid have been fulfilled!

 Goodbye Spilt ends now you're a thing of the past
 Hello beautiful hair, for  my love affair with  beautiful braids is here to last

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.

My metamorphosis into a bun maska...

My heart leaped with elation When I read- Cafeteria announces the launch of a bun maska station    Now I could have my favourite snack Any time round the clock without holding back
Long winding lines at the chaiwala Seemed to attest that I was not the only one who thought so So light and fluffy, melt in the mouth! Is one ever enough? Umm no!   Can be gobbled up in a jiffy No mess, a time save, really quick and spiffy  Not one but  four versions to choose from Eat to your hearts content without any qualm     Bun with butter, extra cheese, and if you have a sweet tooth, there's jam  Accompanied with a hot cup of  sweet tea,  Anything better can there be?  
 Then one night in my dream Appeared  my super  thin calorie conscious friend who  thinks she's  supreme   I was as usual gobbling away to glory When  she began to bore me with  her  calorie story
  150 calories in a plain bun  A spoon/  cube of butter only another 100  Making a normal one 250 cal  An irresistible slice of cheese ap…
