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

Man of Glass 


Upper class, man of glass

Totally transparent

Easily, see through me

It’s all quite apparent.


A gives money

Straight to B

There’s nothing to hide.

Nuts to you

Go and sue

Gorment’s on my side.


Mummy-ji, loving me

Playing games with fruit

You can shout

I’ll just pout

And chill out with my loot


Mummy see, ragging me

Can’t you make them stop?

Why so mad? What’s so bad?

They gave you the shop


Salman-bhai, said he’d die

Why has he not done it?

In this fight, might is right

How come you’ve not won it?


Mummy G, let me be

I have golf and gym

One-two flats, minor stats

Grandkids need to swim


I see you, through and through

It’s all crystal clear

I blame you, yes I do

They’re losing all their fear

    Sounds like children’s tongue-twister-challenge. I don’t understand some words from this poem, but I think I catch the right tune at all.

    Excellent! In the best tradition of Russian poets-revolutionaries…

      Thanks. I love Brecht, who was kind of Russian, in spirit.
