Aam Panna

The 90's (aam panna)
If you have seen the ad of paper boat’s aam panna, you know exactly what I am thinking…When ever I think of my childhood there are some
wonderful memories that come to my mind…especially those days during the 90’s era…when music was still only available on cassettes and radio,
movies were family events and multiplex was never heard of, when road side samosa, mirchi was our favorite snack available for 2rs 50p, when
leg touch and current shock were break time sports. I remember sneaking fata-fat in uniform pockets and eating them during the class, asking my
grand father for a cup of ice cream after final exams, saving 25p and 50p to make 5rs and finally buy a dairy milk, making paper boats
and setting them for sail in the rain,waiting for the month of june to buy new books, labels and pens, waiting an entire week for sunday to
finally watch duck tales, tales pin and alice in wonderland…My very fond memories of 90’s.

Today we have more electronic gadgets than the number of people in the house, music is available every where (thanks to digital clouds of data)
movies…don’t even get me started…everyday more than 2 movies in over 150 channels in at least 3 languages….that’s just too little for entertainment.we also
have unimaginable number of websites hosting all the movies, music and non-sense…Samosa is exorbitantly priced at 10rs and 100rs almost has lost it’s value.
Children only are seen playing Tennis and Cricket. Chocolates and Ice creams are must haves….video games and iPods are common….Plethora of
channels dedicated for cartoons and remotes at their service. More or less the generation is caught in a digital wave…
I do not hate technology and I love having all the comforts we have today. But, today I still cherish sitting with my grand father and enjoying those 12rs cups of vanilla ice cream,
sneaking with my brother and sharing the 5rs dairy milk, sitting before the TV and watching mowgli.
This is something that I can never promise my child…the something that will always be part of my life….


There she was standing alone...enchanted and overwhelmed. there was smile on her lips and happiness in her eyes. She held the droplets delicately in her dainty hands waiting to be drenched. She was lost in her own world. It was a scene of frivolous delight, of a soul dancing in the joy of fervent rain. It was her moment of simple bliss. A timeless magic of nature and it's beauty. A Girl in the rain...

Samayama Kadalake

hrudayame alalai egase kanuvindagu veduka
kanureppala kaburulatoh daricherina korika
pulinkatala vintala sandadi vela
samayama kadalake
hariville varnalai merise jilibili taaraka
chirujallulaa tadipi kadige andala kaanuka
kavvintala allari saage vela
samayama kadalake
merupule karigi kalamai gisina chitrama
manasune tadimi darike cherina mounama
naa talapula adugulu urike vela
samayama kadalake
vennele varamai bhuvine vaalina punnama
kaluvale kalisi kalipina vayyari rupuma
naa oohalu parugulu teese vela
samayama kadalake
