    Jitoo Uncle,

    I have honestly completed my homework. Here it goes,,

    A Physician,

    prescribes his wife,

    the dosage of the syrup,

    2tsf thrice a day.

    Three days later,

    his friend, a surgeon,

    returns him,

    the missing table spoons ! ! !

    Jitoo Uncle, How is this? Does my homework deserve a good remark?

    Brocaji, As hilarious as ever. You’re a wizard of hazards. By the way, my 3-year old granddaughter Deeksha boasts to her friends that she daily goes for her evening walk…you know, perched on my shoulders. Warm regards.

    Very amusing hazards. Here are some on the line as I could contribute off-hand, Brocaji.

    Doctor suffers his patients patiently.

    Actor acting inaction before wife.

    Barber finding no barbers to trim his own hair.

    Professor lectured by his wife even on Sundays.

    Carpenter going to bed on a squeaking cot.

    Politician disbelieving his wife on her faithfulness.

    Poet writing leave letter in prose checking for meter.

    Dear Pooja, I had been wondering whether you had a small funny bone in you or not. Your serious poetry on God, dying patients, missed brother, and other subjects made me conclude that you loved the serious side of life. However, given a challenge to come out with some thing funny, you have come out with a hilarious concoction which indicates that you love your funny moments too, once in a while. 10/10 for this piece, dear. Keep smiling and make others around you smile as well.

    Dear Atreya ji, Thanks for your response and appreciation. Sometimes our children can beat us outright with their innocence and smartness. When I go the office in the morning, I often see an old man (perhaps the grandfather) going for a walk with his grandson perched on his back having great fun plucking flowers for their pooja perhaps from a tall tree on the way. Sometime I see them in the evening- the grandson atop his favourite seat licking a ” kulfee “! I enjoy the scenes.
