Tring trrring...

Okay I know this is not how cell phones ring these days... but since I can't emulate the thousands of ring tones on cell... well this should do...

And by now, I guess you know I am talking about...

We see people bragging about their high-end sleek slim 'latesht' mobiles... well I am not going to do that...

My handset looks like a purane zamaane ka dabba, but ironically... it still gets used more than the latesht pieces of my friends, because more often than not... their phones are balance-less. Like owner, like... :D

Mine is post-paid! 

You find people clicking pictures all over the place...(yeah, you get the idea...) I can proudly say that I never do that.... 

(My cell doesn't have a camera... :D )

You find people on their two wheelers, oblivious to the car honking at ear-cracking noise levels with earphones and music blaring in their ears (yeah Linkin Park fans!). Well I never do that either... 

(Hehe... my cell doesn't have any songs, or FM either :D )

The favourite pass time of my friends seems to be Bluetoothing... 

(Yeah mine isn't...)

Flowers and hearts adore the cell screen of their cells...

(I hate those...)

People live in constant worry... about their precious ones...

(My cell doesn't have a SIM and nobody would want it even if I were to gift it for free...  so no worries... and bina tension ke aadmi zyada jeeta hai na... :D )

And my cell can do modelling too...
See... toh behtar kaun???

P.S. I seem to have lost my voice... thanks to inflated tonsils, as it is I have such a 'surili' awaaz... it sounds like crockery crashing right now... ;)

So thanks to Arjun...

Simply for you...

To the biggest source of my inspiration...
My teachers...


When for the first time I sat on my place....
Completely lost, shy...
It was you who came to me,
Welcomed me with an embrace...


When for the first time I hurt myself and couldn't find my parents around,
With tears rolling down my cheeks,
It was you who came to me,
Lovingly you tended and it was bound...

When for the first time I stood on the stage,
Facing the crowd and sensing the impending doom,
It was you who came to me,
Gave me the courage...


When for the first time I won a prize,
And came to you, feeling ecstatic...
You were there for me,
All prasie...

Today, when I head unknown destinations,
Without any hesitation,
I remember you...

Today, when I fall down and hurt myself,
Without feeling bruised,
I remember you...

Today, when I face the world,
Without any dread,
I remember you...

Every little award I acquire,
I remember you...
For I have a lot to thank you for...

P.S. This has been written for a poetry contest being held at the Writer's Lounge, where the theme is inspiration... It may seem a little cliched to be writing this for teachers, but I honestly feel indebted to them... Please do leave your comments...
