INITIAL INVESTMENT

Initial Investment

A Funny Poem

Original  in Hindi 

Ek makhi ganjay ke sir pey jaa baithi,
Doosri makhi nay kaha,
“Wah, kya ghar mila hai tujhey”
Pehli makhi boli:
“Kahan yaar, abhi to sirf plot kharida hai…” 

My Translation : 

A fly settled
On a bald headed man’s head.
To her, another fly,
Then this said:
“Wow, what a lovely house you have got…”
Said the first: “No my dear friend,
This is just the
Initial plot I’ve bought!”

Hum aapko dekhney ki chahat rakhtey hain,

To see you all day long…

A Funny Poem

Original in Hindi

Ek vidyarthi nein bio-lab mein,
Ek makhi ke parr tod ke kaha,
Udd jaa…udd jaa…
Par..makhi nahin uddi !
Uss ney conclude kartey kaha,
Yeh sabit hua…ki,
Agar makhi ke parr tod diye jaaen, 
Tau makhi sunn nahin sakti…..!!

My Translation :

A student in a biology lab
Clipped the wings of a fly,
And said— fly, now fly… 
But the fly, didn’t fly.
The student thus concluded 
From this experiment-
If a fly’s wings are clipped,
It loses its sense of hearing!!

Do you have it in you?

Do you have it in you ?

A funny poem

Image result for GOLGAPPE

Original in Hindi

Aap aap ho,
Hum hum hain.
Pyaaz nahin kaatey,
Fir bhi aankhein namm hain, 
Supply naan honey sey,
Golgappon mein bhi paani kamm hai,
Iss sey bakwaas sms bhejo-
Agar tum me dumm hai !!

Translation by me

You are you, I am me.
I haven’t peeled onions,
Yet my eyes are watery.
Due to scarcity of water,
Even Golgappas* 
Are somewhat dry too,
Try sending a similar uselss sms-es
If you have it in you !!

(*A favourite snack item.)

Limericks For Fun

LIMERICKS FOR FUN

1. RESOLUTION SOLUTION

A mathematician from a top institution
Announced his New Year’s resolution:
“I shall solve every sum
With four fingers, one thumb
And with the other hand write the solution!”

2. FISH FLUSH

A goldfish that got flushed down the loo
Went through pipes all the way to Peru
He was caught by a farmer
Then transported by llama
To a new bowl in Machu Picchu

3. SOX POX

A princess once contracted a pox
That turned body parts into socks
She thought it quite rotten
When her ears became cotton
And clashed with her silky frocks

4. DEFECTIVE DETECTIVE

There once was a private detective
Whose methods were wholly defective
The only case that he solved
Was how his deskchair revolved
While he munched on a chocolate digestive

A maiden at college, Miss Breeze,
Weighed down by B.A.s and Lit.D’s,
Collapsed from the strain,
Said her doctor, “It’s plain
You are killing yourself — by degrees!”

In a funeral procession was spied;
When asked, “Who is dead?”

Who slipped on a peel of banana.
As she lay on her side, 
More stars she espied
Than there are in the Star-Spangled Banner.

Who married on one of his trips,
A widow named Block,
Then died of the shock,
When he saw there were six little chips.

Assorted Limericks

ASSORTED LIMERICKS

Here are 4 limericks compiled by me over the years, (1967 onwards…) from various sources.

1. A good limerick is like a good wine.
Image result for a good imerick is like good wine clip art

The limerick is like a good wine 
Writing one takes spunk and spine 
Making a rhyme is the catchy key 
Modeling what most want to see 
Winning that last whining line.

2. Packing a limerick.
Image result for et as many words into the last line as ever I possibly can.clipart
There was a young poet name Mann,
Whose limericks never would scan.
When the said, “But the thing
Doesn’t go with a swing,”
He said, “Yes, but I always try to get as many words into the last line as ever I possibly can.”

3. Short Limerick
Image result for two lined limerick clipart

There once was a man from Peru
Whose limerick stopped at line two.

4. College Professor
Image result for absent minded professor

There once was an old man of Esser,
Whose knowledge grew lesser and lesser,
It at last grew so small
He knew nothing at all
And now he’s a college professor.
