Interest Is Interesting

The word "interest" always interests me,

Interest is an interesting word, you see! 

Nothing is possible without interest, I feel.

Interest generates knowledge, action & zeal.

Interest is what is needed by one at first,

Interest acts as a driving force & is like thirst-

To quench this thirst, there is motivation.

Efforts are indications; interest is the inspiration.

What Do You Think?

Do you think you can remove all from the group?

Do you think without water you can make soup?

Do you think you can play your dirty tricks?

Do you think no one can see your dark streaks?

Do you think you are the only one who knows?

Do you think you are all-in-all; the rest are foes?

Then There Was Light

It was past midnight. 

She was speeding her car trying to flee.

Goons were hot in her chase.

She was not going to let them catch her. 

She sped through little-known by-lanes in an unfamiliar part of the city.

In a dark stretch, her car suddenly stopped.

When Sheep Jumped Higher Than Goats

When I was small, I liked the nursery rhyme- "Hey Diddle Diddle".

The third line of the rhyme- "The cow jumped over the moon" often made me wonder how it could ever be possible.

The moon is so far away.

Even a little child knows this.

The cow is near and so very dear. In India, the cow is considered to be our mother. Like mother's milk, cow's milk too has nourished us.
