Merry Christmas!


It’s the Christmas Eve and still Eric is busy, in fact, lost in fixing his next big thing in Telecommunications. He has been working relentlessly more than passionately to make it on the floor, I mean his next breakthrough technology. But he has just been missing something to rock it and roll on. He has been so lost and out of touch with his own life, his family – the world that matters to him the most.
As Ena (Eric‘s wife) has been carrying and almost all alone taking care of their baby who is about to come out to this lively world! As the the doctor’s team are putting their best efforts to make it all smooth for Ena and the baby, Ena has been obviously missing Eric by her side for a long long time. In fact, Eric has even forgotten all that he and Ena are going to be parents and the medical team is even in their house for Ena!
As the Christmas Eve is all set to make a transition into Merry Christmas, there comes the new baby out to the world! The baby child’s first cry just makes the whole house and surrounding so lively and musical that suddenly Eric even jumps with happiness than out of joy in his confined world! The medical delivery teams shouts with joy ‘it’s a boy…’, Ena is so happy after lot of pain she has had to go through, Eric rushes to the room! Every body is so ecstatic and here goes Merry Christmas in chorus! Eric holds on to the baby and says to Ena, “it’s our baby, our son”! Ena befittingly with a smile says to Eric, “Yes Eric, it’s your son, it’s my son, it’s our son! You are a father, and how can I express how it has been feeling being a mother!”. Eric and Ena are so happily close to each other now with the baby. It doesn’t matter to them whether it’s a boy or a girl! They are relishing the moment that they are again truly together and smiling!

Eric realises, the best innovation in the world is Life! Now he realises he has been part of this eternal innovation! He realises all the science, technology, equipment etc. don’t matter at all in front of this greatest natural innovation ‘Life‘. As we communicate our feelings, the joy through our smiles, eyes and some uttered and expressed words! Everything else is secondary and they will keep coming.

(As very soon Eric gets it all right virtually with little effort in his gigantic innovation lab.)

Yes, CM! Yes, PM! Yes, All!


Yes, CM! Yes, PM! Yes, Congress! Yes, BJP! Yes, CPM! Yes, All! Yes, etc! Yes, et al!
I am the ridiculously Independent ‘Common Poor Man‘ !

I am the compulsory, yet partly optional!
I am the subject, I am the specialisation!
Yes, I am the PCM!
But only in the votes, ranks
as marks just for the Qualification!
I am Prem, I am Chatur!
Yes, I am the Prevalent Common Man!
I am the generalisation, yet not the realisation!
I am the suggestion, not the implementation!
I am the news, but only the Journalists’ slogan!
I am the motion, but never the action!
In the Constitution, but outside the (Planning) Commission!
I am in the Institution, but never in the Consideration!
I am in the Law, but never in the Know!
I am the Integration, I am the Unity,
But if I show fully, to them I look dirty!
I am the Majority, yet the Minority!
I am the Mass, but treated as the Trash!
I am the Voice, but never a compulsory Choice!
I am the Point, but not as long as the Opponent!
I am in the election,
but as Permutation and Combination!
I am significant only in the counting
of votes in the election,
But left out to be mere two-digit number
when it comes to monetary calculation
Or so to say to attach a valuation
towards a BPL qualification!
I am always in the scene,
but later edited, cut, deleted
when it comes to be the released Film,
so much so that I am made so irrelevant
as if I am so misfit and obscene!
I am the resource, I am the growth,
I am the treasure, I am the wealth,
but made out to be the burden of subsidy
and fiscal deficit in the budget
to hide their misfire and misadventure,
and the inability, the opaque governance,
to conceal and prolong their illicit honeymoon
with dishonesty and corruption,
Thereby giving us the unwanted child
In the form of high inflation!
I am the food, I am the nutrition,
But in the godown, made out to rot
If I don’t fit in their plan and ambition!
I am in the act, but not in the participation!

Hey, watch out, all you Political Corrupt Men!

I am the Pressed Compressed Man!
Yes, I am the Poor Common Man!
