How young people can get ahead

School work leads to thrilling careers
Say hooray hip hip--give three cheers!
A student's new skill
Brings success just until
The bill for the loan's in arrears!

life time race

every year a new base 
every day a new race 

works often done 
life always runs 


thinking past of.....
walking fast as...


life always run 
without new base


minding up down
thinking lane down


race rather goes ,
for everyone here ,


no hurry in between
for been furious in between 


do not be fast so  means,
do not be much slow 


it can hang you up
and can shut you down

race always goes 
if you are together 


there can be a  success for you 
for those ,
who winds up the race.....

There once was a dog,

who started a blog,

he reported the news,

with barking reviews,

then toasted success with egg nog.

Final Instalment ,a hypothesis





Once there was a teacher by name Jenish Anthony "the Holy"
represented success by the simple equation  “E=C2” coolly
“E” success in any endeavor of value
“C” uncompromising pursuit of a value 
Bloody this hypothesis of Jenish"the great teacher" is no folly!

Withdrawing rupees

When at home the card is so handy,
You buy all including some candy.
But India’s bombastic,
Unfavorable to plastic,
You’ll find cash is just fine and dandy.

Not good am I at the bank machine,
As much as I try incompetent I seem.
To get us sufficient,
Would be real efficient,
But that would be too much to dream.

Now India’s money is known as the rupee,
Dominations in hundreds here do you see.
But last in Japan,
Too much we demand,
And the computer said “No Siree”.

The machines in Oman and around,
No better or even as sound.
To give us some dough,
To the store we could go,
And buy us the stuff that we found

Mumbai’s machines are more tolerant,
Of I who was totally ignorant.
Of how to give me,
More than enough for coffee,
And it wasn’t the least bit hesitant.

A hundred rupees just seemed like a lot,
Even though I knew not how much I had got.
Turns out it would cover,
Not enough for another,
Cup of coffee a refill or not

Again I go back for another try,
To get enough green for things to buy.
To keep us full,
Of food and swill,
And success was had on the fly

Things do happen

Funny things or crazy things of the world
Small or big, things do happen in the world
when our heart wants to go some where
but the way becomes tough to go any where
what we give nobody takes
what we ask nobody gives
colorful weather do exist
color of the wind never exist
when we are in a hurry
we often have to worry
scratching the head to think something
working hard to achieve something
All these may be our activities
We may get reward for our abilities
When utilized in a proper way
Then success will be not away
we should always keep in mind
we should never look behind
things of whatever kind
may happen one day
wait for the day

Gnirps, Syrups and Turnips

Gnirps, Syrups and Turnips

Guess what Gnirps are or is?

Two gnus had meet two gnirps
Had burps and tried many syrups
By time problem was final solved;
Eat no more gnirps they resolved;
Found success after eating turnips.

Jim Horn

Gnarrs and gnarls came up
for gnirpsHave you figured 
out gnirps are yet?

A Weaver Of Dreams



Rod Stewart his name, a weaver of dreams, his fame His raspy voice was apparently appealing all the same Can't argue with that Pulled success out of a hat His sexy voice made ladies melt and become inflamed
