The Moo Point

Firstly, please ask me: why a new blog? Because if you don’t then this whole blog becomes pointless as I don’t get a chance to explain my point of view. Given how opinionated I am and the range of topics I can list under my expertise, I needed a mouthpiece to voice some of those remark, brickbats, and concerns of national, environmental and individual interests. Also it would give some leeway to my friends who are usually bombarded with my rumblings.

And the fact that I rumble is easily exhibited here, since I haven’t yet answered the primary question: why a new blog? Well that’s because I consider my first/original blog very chaste and cultured. Even if you don’t give a shit for what’s posted there, I believe them to be literary and graphic masterpieces. (Some of them really are, really!!) I have a very reasonable dream of having an anthology of poems published someday. So I decided that let me rumble at a separate address.

Now please be cordial enough to ask me the second question: What’s the MOO POINT?

Well, those who have F.R.I.E.N.D.S flowing in their veins, it needs no further explanation. As Joey Francis Tribbiani says, “Moo Point is the cow’s opinion. It just doesn’t matter. It’s Moo.” So is my blog. It’s all MOO. It’s prejudiced, it’s caustic, it’s illogical, it’s downright blasphemous and it makes no bloody sense. In short, it’s utterly useless. So just sit back, or shit back, as you may wish, and enjoy the journey through blah-blah land.

The Awesome Threesome

I expect the DC++ hoggers already know about "Three KGPians day out", well here is a new version of it.

Four days before the end sem exams, and on the eve of the day which has three tests in store for them, three KGPians, decided to go out for a late night snack. Actually there wasnt much decision involved except for the place where they would be willing to hog down stuff. The local canteen won on the grounds that being the nearest, they would be WASTING much lesser time if they went there.

The guftagu began, after the initial rite of ordering your stuff. Two Bread Butters, one beg sandwich, and a cup of tea. No maggie, no chowmein -- seriosly these people were low on budget. Before we get any further into their actual conversation, lets name the three dramatis personae. On account of confidentiality, they have requested that they be known by aliases. So lets call them MyTh, Quark and manGO.

As the three waited for the food to arrive, manGO being in a counter reflective mood de…

Reflections

महफ़िलें वही हैं, ये
जाम दूसरा है
बाज़ार है वही, पर
दाम दूसरा है

ख्वाहिशें वही हैं
खुमार दूसरा है
यार भी वही हैं, पर
प्यार दूसरा है

सब कुछ है हूबहू, बस
ख्याल दूसरा है
वो साल दूसरा था, ये
साल दूसरा है

mehfilein wahi hain, par
jaam doosra hai
bazaar bhi wahi hai, par
daam doosra hai

khwahishein wahi hain
khumaar doosra hai
yaar bhi wahi hain, par
pyaar doosra hai

sab kuchh hai hu-ba-hu, bas
khayal doosra hai
woh saal doosra tha
yeh saal doosra hai

The Year Of - Derivative Poetry

Embers, fires and slumbers
stoked, fanned and broken

dreams, promises, kisses
borrowed, begged or stolen

palms sweaty, knees weak, arms heavy
ribs bruised and eyes swollen

from earth, dust and ashes
rising
unbowed, unbent, unbroken.
