Ode to BT…..

The issue of BT dared 26th July 09 was quite interesting.
In appreciation, I wrote the following Ode to BT on 18th
July 09 and sent it to the Editor BT. I shall wait to see if
it is published in the next issue of BT or not.

Dear Editor,here’s an Ode to BT :
Your issue dated 26th July
Titled “Going For Broke”
Gave me here a nudge
And there a little poke !
Your “Myth & Reality” Focus
On our scanty Monsoon
Was very apt and timely
And not a bit too soon.
Reading “How The Rich Deal
With Recession”
Sent my good mood
Into a deep depression !
While the worlds richest millionaires
Sail on yachts and fly
Luxury planes in the airs,
You and poor poor me
Aren’t a wee bit fine,
As we struggle to pay
Our Income “Tax-on-Line” !
Your sincere opinion on
“Railways on Fast Track
Deserve a hearty
Pat on your back.
The great cover story
On The Budget and its bloomers
Balance interview with
“Price Waterhouse Coopers “
Unique profile of Mister
Nandan Nilekani
Tasted like our own
Home grown “Daal Makhaani”
“Stop Kissing Frogs” will certainly
Make our Managers more bold,
“How Satyam Was Sold”
Was a “doosra” well-bowled !
Ah ! Yes ! Your Free “MORE”.
Was a heavenly piece of cake.
I wonder from where
You guys learnt how to bake !
Leggy “Mugdha Godse
Was cute and nice,
A virtual feast
For our sore eyes !
Yes, my heart did
A double-take,
I certainly didn’t fake.
She was the proverbial
Cherry on the cake !!
                                             Mugdha Godse 
PS: Note for the Editor :
Please don’t chop
My ode
Due to usual
Space constraints,
I implore you,Sir,
Its my labour of love
For BT- unrestrained  !!
