'Yin and Yang'

Yin and Yang,
Complement each other as woman and man.

Two halves of a whole,
When joined together become one soul. 

The existence of a shadow in light,
Is certain like day precedes night.

Two individual opposing forces,
Interconnected  have supported each other throughout the ages.

The dance of duality,
Where interdependence is the key.

The perfect balancing act,
Where the sum is greater than the punch the parts pack.

Yin represents the side in the shade,
Yang being the sun, lighting up everything in its wake.

For doesn't it take two to tango,
Else wouldn't there be a no-show?

But what I don't like about this philosophy,
Is that Yin represents a lady.

Yang being the ever glorious male,
For me this is where the philosophy fails.

I agree that both are two sides of a coin,
But why should one be right and the other wrong? Shouldn't this be re-coined.

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.

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…
