Well,I was happy that almost all my readers liked my first poem.I would like to try more of it,but as they say,poetry is the overflow of powerful emotions.So,I guess I'll have to wait for yet another powerful emotion for my second poem.My semester exams are far from over,it will end most probably on 17th of this month.There's lot of fun and excitement coming ahead after the exams. I'll tell you about it in coming posts.

I would like my readers to answer this poser- If you were given a chance to marry,how would your wedding be?

(A) a high profile theme party(like gold-champagne party) with all the glitz and glamour of super-rich soceity

(B) customary traditional way with a lot of Bollywood influence( a movie-like wedding)-according to religious practices-In India,there are various religions,I'm including all of them here.

(C) A simple ceremony without much fanfare,no glamour or not-so-"big,fat" wedding.

(D) A registered marraige in court of law

I know many other options exist,but these are rough ideas.My readers are free to write their ideas of their "dream" wedding.I think you will find it enjoyable.

Hemanth Potluri said…
my wedding will be in the presence of all my friends offline and wud be a big party with all of them here :)....

alok said…
My option would be (e) difficult to answer at this point of time but would be simple enough to follow whatever (option) it maybe at that right time :)
Tara said…
My option would have to be (C). I have always believed in those little, personal moments, the individual only a simple ceremony for me! Am not a very social person, so this suits me just fine! I have been to weddings, where there are so many people, and our existence almost doesn't matter! That's sad! :)
RiverSoul said…
To tell the truth, i'm definitely not the party type. But i'd love to have a quiet ceremony and a pleasant get together with all the guys and gals i've befriended.

You haven't mentioned ur choice,..

A simple ceremony without much fanfare,no glamour or not-so-"big,fat" wedding.

not because its simple and less costly. because over here, "WE" would be the centre of attraction and not our guests! :-)

Now I hav changed anctually dropped the plan of I wud telll u wat I thot earlier on..

I used to fantasize abt the christian wedding seen in tat white dress and all...I luved to be married tat way..That never happens in our keralite
Harshita said…
I belong to a Punjabi family and for us, the wedding is more of a platform to share,laugh and have fun together. :)

So I would go for two weddings(with the same person ofcourse..hehe) a Customary wedding with halla-gulla,dance masti, good food and the typical shaadi masala... and another one wud be a beach wedding :)

I loved this post... :)

One where people who really matter to the couple who's eyes are filled with glee are arnd, There are always only a few of such kind exists so it has to be a very very small and an extremely private affair, where I am definitely not interested to see a long lost distant in court of law.{otherwise there is no need of marriage as such, its only a legal obligation for ppl who really cares for the bond anyways)
khiragni said…
ofcourse(A)."A BIG FAT WEDDING" where d bride n d groom r 'fat'..!

priyambada said…

Rocky said…
It's not the place or the people around me that matters to me. I dont mind any type of wedding as long as the one that I am going to marry can be with me in all the times.

Given a wedding of my choice, I would love the idea of getting married in presence of all those people whom I know :)
Rakesh said…
option 3 works for me
Kartz said…
Have lots of time to think... :P Jaldi kya hai...

Ok, so much for smart-alec responses. I ll go with anything that makes the moment as *memorable* as it can get. Simple or grandiose... Anything...

Not seen you in a while... Do drop in when you can. Good luck with ur exams. Chak de! ;)
Vamsi said…

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.

I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.

I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
Note : This was one of  the earliest poems I read,loved and cherished.


Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

Amidst Soul-lessness

There is smoke somewhere. 
I cannot seem to figure out where. 
The lights are here, the music is here.
Has it been home here ?
Perhaps. Maybe when it did not rain.
Or maybe when it rained and it did not matter.
Maybe when I walked alone, smiling to myself. 
Or maybe when I realized I was okay.
Had it been always like this ?

Not really. 
Things clicked, took effort and blood. 
Did I do it ? Or the beasts did ? Maybe we both together,
Played this game. 
Amidst soulful solitude, it was love. 
Maybe appreciation.
Another journey, another dry spell. 
Will it ever be home again ?
