INDIA UPDATE

Many physicists today postulate the existence of multiple universes, even when sober. We used to live in a world of infinite possibilities. Now we live in an infinite number of worlds. India shines. Democracy thrives. The economy booms. A hundred flyovers bloom. This is not that India. If you see your picture here one day, don’t worry. That’s not you.

POME OF THE DAY


 The Grumblies of the No-No

(translated from the Sukumar Roy)

The Grumblies of the No-No
Frown upon the ho ho
Say anything funny, they go
“Ho ho? No no! No no!”

They live in mortal fear
That laughter could be near
They peer around suspiciously
To check the coast is clear

They hardly ever sleep
Their vigilance is deep
“If I smile,” they warn themselves
“I’ll beat me till I weep!”

Near woods they’ll never be
Nor leap from tree to tree
For fear the tricksy south wind
Could tickle out some glee

No rest can be allowed
When every passing cloud
Is chock-a-block with funny drops
They hear them, oh so loud!

In bushes, left and right
On dark and gloomy nights
Glow worms glow in unison
Like mocking laughter lights

Oh you  who laugh around
And roll about the ground
Don’t you see the agony
You cause them is profound?

The Grumblie house is full of ways
To make you shut your face
No funny wind can blow there
And laughter has no place.
