let's learn from nature around us

She may deprive her children
Of their daily nutrition
By giving her milk to the human
The cow's generosity is a god-given boon

The sturdy tree , unselfishly provides
The basic needs of most creeds
That inhabit this planet
Despite receiving an abundance of mistreatment

The honey bee's painful sting may be a dampener
But u can't deny this creature's sophistication and vigour
I does it's assigned work without a lament
It's truly a speciemen to compliment

No matter how small
The ant remains a good teacher 4 all
It's tiny yet mighty
It's disciplined life's truly a thing to study

So lets open our eyes to the wonders of nature
And observe the things we ignore
Nature has enough hidden lessons
To make humility an important word for humans .

Back to Delhi

I'm back to Delhi I sadly say ,
How on earth should I keep boredom at bay ?
After an adventure filled holiday
I get bored sitting at home every day .

I know I should't bitch .
With books (which I've already read ) my house is rich .
And piles of holiday homework I can't ditch .
With my new embroidery books I can learn many a stitch .

But why read the same books again and again ?
By doing holiday Homework no pleasure I gain .
While embroidering I spoil every cloth, so stiching is vain .
So how on earth do I keep my self Sane ?

A complete holiday

From North to South so many places I've scaled
In a matter of 15 days I've gone in bus , flown and railed
So many climes in this holiday I've come across
From -1 in Rohtang to 36 in Pondi I've crossed

In this holiday in Seobagh I camped in a tent
To Kullu , Manali , Manikaran and Vashist I went
In Manikaran many hot springs I saw .
On the bus I saw several apple , peach and pomogrenate trees with fruits raw.

Then we went to Rohtang pass
With Sameer and Rakesh uncle and Gungun
There was saw yak sheep and many an ass .
But getting ill on the way was not fun .

We also went to bijli mahadev , the ancient shiv temple
And again our companions were Sameer , Pranjal and Rakesh uncle .
The trek was a rough 5 km walk uphill .
But after reaching the peak , with a sense of achievement I was filled .

After that we went to Manikaran ,
Located at the scenic Parvati valley with hot springs at every turn .
It was in the gurudwara a strange sight we saw ,
Cooking in the hot springs was rice and pulses raw .

Then we returned to Delhi by bus
And throughout the journey my sweet li'l sis came without a fuss .
After that for chennai we left through flight .
By keeping this a secret my parents gave me a lovely fright .

Then for a few days in Chennai we were
And what boredom filled days they were .
Then we went with thikkum , sudhir mama and prabha mami in car .
As the distance between chennai and pondicherry wasn't far .

In pondi , at the aurobindo ashram we stayed .
By the bland taste of the satvic food I was dismayed .
The old french houses were pleasing to one's eye .
The view from Preeti aunty's house was so pleasing , oh my .

Then to banglore we payed a visit .
The vacation there was quite a hit
Shiva spent a lot of time
And with Pawan , Pramod and Yashwant , I had a good time .

Now in a day for delhi from chennai we'll leave
This vacation was my best I believe .
But once we're back life'll be the same .
With piles of homework to do and many a football game

Homework Not Done

For a poetry recitation this poem I had written
This is about a girl whom the bug of laziness had bitten
For this poem the first prize i got
And acclaim a lot .
So here it is -

During Friday maths homework I got
" I'll do it in the long weekend " I thought
The weekend came and went
I ignored my homework and in fun i spent

But with every passing minute this thought came
"Now i must do it
Or my teacher's temper I'll have to tame
And my parents will also throw a fit

But to do my homework I wasn't very taxed
During the weekend I only relaxed
I played with my friends
And I thought " One must surely relax on weekends

Finally , this dreadful Monday morning dawned
I woke - up and I yawned
Then the realization hit me
" The maths homework ! Now what will happen to me ? "

During the bus ride , my mind raced
" Now how should the maths teacher I face ? "
So an excuse I'll quickly make
An excuse which she'll surely take

After a lot of deciding
I thought about bunking
" But my bag she'll see and get suspicious
Now this wouldn't be so auspicious "
Another excuse I chanced upon
I'll say that my granny died
And from her funeral I returned at dawn
But this excuse for 5 times I had tried

Then in my pocket I found - my trick ink blot
" I'll slip it in my copy I hatched this plot
i'll slip it wherever possible
And aha ! She'll see ink everywhere and get a scare terrible "

So the maths period arrived
And my trick , I tried
But she didn't get scared as I had divined
By discovering the trick she scared ME out of my mind

She got really angry
And this was really scary
She said in a thunderous voice " Who has plotted against me ! "
And all hands were pointed at me

With tears in my eyes
And a pulpy stomach and wobbly knees
Outside the princee's office I realise -
It's either doing homework early
Or facing the dreaded surely

more about me

On 1 March '96 I came from heaven to earth
At 11:30 pm took place my birth .
And of my parent's joy there was no dearth

My dad is an Air force officer
My mom is a teacher
So my family has to shift lock and stock in every 2 - 4 years .

So I lived in Delhi from 0 to 4
And in Kolkata from 4-7
And Napur from 7-10
Since the age of 10 , Rk Puram in Delhi has been my den.

I'm currently a teen
And from my books I can't be weaned
I can proudly say that I'm decent at oratory
Another interest is embroidery .

I also enjoy cooking , I can say
And occasionally , paint I may .
Like a normal child I go to school by the day .
I hate Sanskrit and maths and keep them at bay .

My room is irritating to one's sight
On my other turn-offs I'll throw some light
Every day with my sis I have atleast one fight
And all my clothes are a bit tight .

So today with this little info my blog I'll end
But on most days this blog I'll tend.
You are free to comment .
To my thoughts this blog gives vent

an introduction to my name

My name is madhumati which I hate
To get it was my bad fate
Because it's tooo long , old fashioned and heavy .
And I'm called Madhumakhi , which means - honey bee
There is nothing wrong with the creature you see
But for it's sting , infamous is the bee .
