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

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 …
