The Edge of the World

The Edge of the World

Sneha clasped her hands together tightly to quell the trembling of her fingers. Taking several deep breaths, she wiped the sweat off her forehead. Who or what had taken over her perky, self confident persona? It was becoming impossible to identify with the bumbling jangle of nerves she had suddenly turned into. Agreed today was crucial for her. This moment felt as if she was about to jump off the edge of the world. Should she take a leap into the unknown and leave everything behind to pursue her dream of becoming an entrepreneur? Or was it wiser to stay back and remain in the comfort of a safe and secure life with a paycheck guaranteed at the end of every month?

Thinking back to the time she was a little child she remembered her grandfather’s words, “Little pet, never fear anything, even the moment you feel you are standing on the edge of the world, for it is not the edge but a ledge of new opportunities and possibilities”. Taking inspiration from those words she felt the trepidation leave her heart. Fear was replaced by joyous excitement. Her dream was about to come true. Agreed there would be countless obstacles along the way.  So what! Nothing worth pursing ever came easy in any case. She didn't want to die wishing that she had been more courageous.  It was finally time for her to banish all her doubts about the future and take a leap of faith off the ledge of the world.

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…
