I am lost without you!

Where are you?

I am missing you

Though you trouble me when you are here-

You trouble me more when you are not there

A dress was arranged to receive you

Since I know that Maya never lies

Though you give me pain when you arrive-

I feel strangled when you don’t arrive

 

Where are you?

I am missing you

I know Maya never lies

You are a value proposition for me

Your first arrival is a big festival

You get intermittent and my time starts ticking

You pause and sadly I get promoted

 

Maya never lies

I am lost without you

This isn’t the time to leave me alone

Please do come back soon

Mushroom fight!

I like to eat mushrooms ce129260-aafe-4578-9afb-284a2c30b4ac

So I asked her to make some

She made some mushroom ce129260-aafe-4578-9afb-284a2c30b4ac

But it was very little

She showed me the mushroom ce129260-aafe-4578-9afb-284a2c30b4ac

And placed it close to her

She ate all the mushroom ce129260-aafe-4578-9afb-284a2c30b4ac

She asked me ‘how is it?’

I told her.. ‘you ate all of it moron’

‘how could I tell about it’

I told her I am putting this in blog

She begged me not to do so

She tried to bribe me with a lime juice

ewww!! I won’t fall for that

She ate all the mushroom ce129260-aafe-4578-9afb-284a2c30b4ac

And asked me ‘how is it?’

 

 

Day Out at Pyramid Valley

You are in Bangalore spending your weekends watching television or browsing things just to while away your time. You have no idea how to end your weekend or to make it productive. Big planned group getaways ends in vain. You have no car or a bike, so travelling long distances is a nightmare to you. That’s when you start googling ‘ places to visit within Bangalore’ and on one such search, ‘ Pyramid Valley‘ pops up.

To PYRAMID VALLEY

Origin: Majestic bus stand

Destination: Pyramid Valley

I read in a couple of blogs about a direct bus (KBS-5H) from Majestic to Pyramid Valley whose timings was supposedly every half hour. So I waited close to an hour at platform number 11a for the so called bus that never arrived. Then after enquiring with some conductors, I decided to board the bus to Banashankari and then proceed further. By the time, I got on the bus, it was 11 am. I should say, ‘ please start early’. With a hell lot of traffic, travelling in bus can be very exhaustive. Reached Banashankari after a very very long time. It’s 19 rs point, ended up losing 1 re.It was sweating hot. Only some snacks and water made the journey bearable. From Banashankari, boarded the KSRTC bus to Harohalli. It’s 40 rs point. I asked the conductor to let me know when my stop comes. Anyway I noticed Metro lines operational at Banashankari. I have never been to this part before, so I decided I will return by metro.

The travel was a bumpy ride with lesser and lesser traffic as we proceeded. It was like a countryside with tall apartments. I counted a building with 20 floors. On the way, there were many lakes all filled with water to the brim. After a long while, the conductor asked me to come to the door and get down. Saw the arrow to Pyramid Valley. Now it’s almost a km inside. Time: 1:30 pm. Need to rush for the free lunch. Literally ran inside. On both sides of the road, were small huts and shops that reminds of a rural village, cow dung on the way, grazing cows, dogs, hen and its chicken, goat, ladies washing clothes by beating it on stone, a high chimney giving out black smoke etc. Many cars passed my side moving to the valley. A temple on the way plus a lotus pond in the valley were refreshing.

You need to sign at the entrance and then you can move in. Rushed for the lunch. It was written you need to take coupons for lunch but since it was 1.45 pm, I didn’t take any coupon. They allowed me for lunch. There was pickle, ridge gourd curry, sambhar and buttermilk as accompaniments for rice. The food was good, decent. Pyramid valley promotes vegetarianism. Anna dhanam or free lunch is provided to all who visit the Pyramid.

I had to answer nature’s call so enquired and found a loo near the vegetarian canteen where you have to pay for food. Filled clean drinking water and started walking to the Pyramid. There were lot of people, mostly couples enjoying the scenic beauty of the surrounding. Lush green grass and coconut trees lined on both sides were amazing.

You are not allowed to take pictures inside the pyramid. Leave your shoes outside and switch off the mobile. You have to meditate for minimum 30 minutes before you proceed to King’s chamber. So you can sit on chairs on or floor on meditation chair. I sat on one like this. It was pretty comfortable even though it was hot inside the pyramid.

It was very silent inside except for occasional whispers. After meditating for a while, I climbed the spiral steps to reach the King’s chamber. Now this is the place which is said to have more concentrated energy as it is situated at 1/3rd the height of the pyramid. They have table fans installed. Without it, I think people would literally burn to death in there. There were people who were sleeping and snoring as an end stage of meditation. These people were woken up and asked to leave. I spend some time there meditating. It was really difficult to control one’s own mind. When people were climbing up, you could feel the place you were sitting shaking as if there was an earthquake.

After climbing down, took the steps to the right. After coming out, there is a shop where you could buy a lot of things. There were pyramid models, books of Osho, Meditation books, pure herbal products, ornaments, pictures, herbal juice, soaps, salts, repellents, cleaners, air freshners and what not. Most of the cosmetic products are from VitroNaturals. I bought a few stuffs but now I regret I could have bought more as the prices there are cheaper compared to that online.

There is a wooden bridge that connects pyramid to cafeteria.

Had a cool lassi at the cafeteria, filled the water bottle and started walking around. There were some dhyana pyramids were you could meditate night and day, a trekking path to Tapasthali, a statue of Gandhiji and Buddha in meditation. There was also a trodden path to a Muruga temple. Anyway since it was getting late and had started to drizzle, started walking back to the main road. No need to sign again on way out.

From Pyramid Valley

Origin: Pyramid Valley

Destination: Home

On the road, got the bus within a minute, a bus bound to Banashankari, 40rs. Stood for major distance of the route, got down at Banashankari, boarded a Metro as planned. Was at my destination in half an hour.

So my suggestion is make use of the Metro, it saves a lot of time and frustration.

My verdict of Pyramid Valley: I will visit again and buy some more natural products.

 

I’ll be there for you!

You know you need me

And that you love me

You never wanna stay away

But you are scared to admit

Don’t worry, you can trust me

I’ll be there for you…

You laugh heartfelt with me

And then you gaze into me

You wanna hold me tight

But you are scared of losing me

Don’t worry, you can trust me

I’ll be there for you…

You fight and scold me

And then you cry with me

You wanna lie in my arms forever

But you are scared of  even dreaming

Don’t worry, you can trust me

I’ll be there for you…

 

 

 

 

What wrong did I do?

Forgive me oh Lord if I have wronged you
But I swear I would never do that to you
Oh would you listen out to me once please
I need to speak out before my heart cease
Tell me, ‘what wrong did I do?’

When you got no time for me and my talks
And was embroiled in your life and stocks
Disregarded me as if I did’t matter anymore
I felt left out and ignored to my core
Tell me, ‘what wrong did I do?’

When I kept on calling and texting you
You thought I was trying to conquer you
You never thought what I was going through
Loneliness and isolation to mention a few
Tell me, ‘what wrong did I do?’

Being a human I did speak with a few
You were not interested in what I do
Didn’t want to bore you and kept it away
Now why do you think I am just a stray
Tell me, ‘what wrong did I do?’

I have fed you always with food and water
And been there always whenever it matter
No One was, is and will be as significant
Forever for me, you are the most magnificent
Tell me, ‘what wrong did I do?’

Forgive me oh Lord if I have wronged you
I swear again I would never do that to you
Now that you have heard out my heart’s pleas
Do pardon me please before my time flees
Tell me, ‘what wrong did I do?’

I won’t disturb!

You do what You want

I won’t disturb you

You can go on any trip

With whomever you want

It doesn’t really matter

I won’t disturb you

You can have meals and snacks with anyone

I won’t disturb you

You can laugh and flirt with anyone

I won’t disturb you

No need to lie and work behind me

I won’t disturb you

You can make friends in no time

And so you might not miss me

Or even notice my absence

I won’t disturb you

All the Best for your future sleepovers

Goodbye, I wish I never see you again.

 

I am Lazy

I might be sexy

But I am so lazy

All I want to do is eat

And that too on my cushioned seat.

I have got lot of work to do

But I don’t want to do

I am tired all the time

I just wanna end my time.

Life is so damn boring

I feel like doing nothing

Live eat  and then sleep

I don’t like to even clean deep.

Already I am dozing

Keyboard is slipping

What am I going to do,

I don’t know when I am due.

 

Bangalore Rains

It rains in Bangalore once in a while

And when it does, it floods a mile

Water is blocking, froth is filling

trees are floating, traffic is dragging

Put on a raincoat and wade through the rain

You wouldn’t even know when you cross a drain

Keep track of the roads’ potholes

Whilst trying not to hit any electric poles

The rain drops are large and sharp

When they hit, they sound like crap

My face is all wet and I can barely see

Inching forward with a sensation to pee

It’s a pity I can’t drive any fast

Even with the blaring honking past

I crave for some clothes warm and dry

And a cozy bed for me to crouch and lie

I hope I don’t catch a fever or a cold

Well, all my leaves have already been sold.

 

 

 

I could wait a thousand years…

I could wait a thousand years
Just to be near with you
And when you do come to me
Just promise me you will stay.

I could make you happiest
If you would let me do
And When you are brimming with happiness
Do pass me a few drops too.

You could go about exploring
But am sure you will return
And when you are coming back
You will be welcomed with open hands.

You are going to succeed always
My prayers will be shielding you
And when you reach the top of the world
Remember me as your anchor.

The Coffee Vending Machine

On the 16th floor of a tall building or to be more specific, at an elevation of 77 meters from ground level, when the temperature is kept as low at 21 degree centigrade to protect electronic equipment from destruction, when goosebumps makes all your hairs rise up in attention, when you dream of cosying up inside a soft velvetty quilt, when you pull the zip slider of a pullover all the way up to the top stop and expects it to extend a bit further to cover your goddamn freezing throat, when you slide your left hand under your warm tushies to prevent them from dying like Jack, when you have no option than to leave the right hand to its fate of imminent death, when you feel like you are enduring all this for some numbers that increase every month end in your bank accounts of which you have lost track of, when you feel like an Eskimo living in an igloo – ask me who my best friend is and my answer would be “The Coffee Vending Machine”.

When it’s unbearably cold and when my body demands some warmth
I know there’s someone I can rely on for my needs henceforth
Rise and rush to my best friend at lightning fast speed
Conversations are trivial, hardly distracting and I pay no heed

Think of the flavours that my friend has to offer
Cappunchino and expresso, milk and some warm water
I keep my unfilled cup right under the nozzle
Flavour pick of my choice, wait for the sizzle

My cup starts filling with white creamy froth
Brewed coffee drops are added to make a broth
Then it suddenly stops to fill, wish there was more
I feel a dearth in the liquid to warm me to my core

I tease my lifesaver with a sachet of sugar
Followed by inserting a straw-cum-stirrer
I kiss the brim of cup while taking a sip
To keep the aroma lingering on my lip.
