Another year towards old age...heheheh

Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings,
As your birthday nears.
Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.
Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.
Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"
Enjoy your day Hemz. Have a blastful birthday
Cheers, Aparna.

Disclaimer: This post is going to be a long one. and after reading this post if you start talking in rhymes then don't blame us. Smiley Tissues would not be responsible for it. :p

How many of us can ever forget the nursery rhymes that we have learnt in our super childhood days? The moment we have kept our very first step in school, the rhymes have become a part of our life. While growing up we lost our touch with this cute li’l things of life but once in a while when life gives back those rhyming memories, we have no choice but to feel happy and thus the smile spreads.

On this auspicious occasion of Diwali I have become the proud member of smiley tissues and I promise to do my every bit to spread happiness and smiles.

This post marks my entry in into the smiling world of smiley tissues. And what better topic I can choose other than rhymes which are conjured up by me, Hemu and Lena. It all started from a comment of mine in the latest poem of Hemu and on orkut some cute n sweet rhymes were created by us. Read on! I bet these rhymes will take u back to ur innocent kindergarden days.

My commnt on Hemu's poem ":D" : what a crakling rhyme it is! :) Hemu! pls tell me the secret abt how cud u write such sweet n cute rhymes?.. i promise i won't tell anyone. :p

Now straight from our orkut scrapbooks

Hemu: do u want to know the secret :P

Preeti: very much. tell me tell me quickly :D

Hemu: heheh soo curious huh!

Preeti: too much. any doubt :p

Now the rhyming starts.


"I rite with a flow..
to see people glow
it should not give a blow
but I am quite slow
when I feel low" :)


"My mind cant be in rest
until my rhymes become d best.
but Lena says dont haste
coz Hemu will always be d best."


"when u call me dear
i have nothing to fear
i feel happy to be near
i think ur like a teddy bear
growing every year."


"dear dear

m ur teddy bear

when friends r near
dont drink beer."


"i dont drink beer
dont be soo jeer :P..
dont even leer
i am just peer
not a seer
and dont change the veer."

While we both were rhyming nonstop, lena was doing nothing excpt laughing. Thus hemu decided to rhyme abt lena.

Hemu to lena :

"Dreaming to fly to the other side
do u by chance need any ride
i am always here to aide
we will try a boat on a tide
by all our friends on the side
and the boat being very wide
so there is no place to hide
so get ready to vide."

Preeti: waaaaaaaaaaa........ it's simply fabulousi am jealous hemu. i am jealous.
Hemu: y r u jealous?



"m not jealous.

but u r marvelous"

Hemu: who me marvelous ..heheh...thnks u soo much :P


"y thnk u so much?

wen thru rhymes we cn kp in touch."

lena’ reply to Hemu,

"Who told you i am going to hide?
why should i if there are friends to give ride?
Keep wondering with your eyes open wide
when i show you the gem of the other side.
Right now you have though to decide
whether you want to know where happiness reside."


"u dont have time
i feel like a mime
all around me is rime
and i like to lick a lime :P..
this is wat i can rhyme."


"i dont have time,
is it a crime?
give me the lime
because it is mine.
ohh... sorry its licked
i couldnt predict
that this is conflict
for rhyming addicts"


"u come over to rock
i will call hancock
dont try to mock
please put on a sock
otherwise i am goin to lock"

lena ....

"i'm going to sleep
and you try to keep
yourself not asleep
before you lick the lime thrice
thats my advice."

After so much of rhyming, now Hemu is all tired.


"Hemu dear, dont get tired
else u will be fired
n in ur place i will be hired"

At last Lena rhymes for me:

"we are sweet
and we dont cheat
one day we will meet
in indian heat
on a beautiful street
each other to greet."

And then we all went to sleep with eyes full of rhyming dreams. :)

Last but not the least:

"khushiyo se apna jeevan sajay
Smiley Tissues ki taraf se
aap sab ko Diwali ke dhero shubkamnay ":)

Reason to Smile

How can one smile such sweet smiles,
When one is so saddened by sorrows for miles,
How can I smile the same smiles,
When life brings me nothing but tears,
I wondered for so long,
What reason you had to smile that long,
To keep smiling though troubles come,
And still remain sweet and silently overcome,
It's such a mystery to me,
Your smiles from heaven with glee,
I adore and yet envy thee,
But I'd rather you smile those at me,
I feel happy when I see you smile,
Even if I'm sad and lonely,
Your smiles bring me somewhere,
I don't even know where,
But it was you,
You gave me the reason to smile,
To smile with no reason,
To smile for a smile,
I guess life is just like that,
We need not a reason to smile,
For a smile is the reason itself,
To rejoice and open-heartedly give thanks,
I learned to smile because of you,
Because your smiles bring me joy when blue,
It proves how well and powerful,
A simple sweet smile can become so beautiful,
Smile for the sake of a smile,
Smile for the sake of happiness,
Smile for the sake of life,
Smile because of hope left in life,
Smile my friends,
Smile for me my Love,
Smile those same sweet smiles,
Smile so the world can be a peaceful dove...

Hay Hemz! Thanks for that sweet smile that you brought it back on ma face... Thanks buddy.

Double Trouble

Have you ever tried talking on two phones at once...??
I was talking on the landline with my sweetie. About an hour into the call, my cell goes tring...!! I look to find its the caterer I had hired. The smart thing would have been ask one of them to wait a bit, and attend one call...but oh no, I had to go try talking to both of them simultaneously.

Caterer: Hello Mr.V, I called to check if you wanted any change in the menu for the function(some puja).

Me: No. No change.

Sweetie: So, what else? Are we meeting for lunch? (I'd said yes 20 mins back, didn't u hear me!!?)

Me: Ya dear, our usual one o'clock.

C: Are you sure? You said you might change it. I need to know for sure. (I said no, right?? Keep the phone moron!!)

M: Yeah, I'm sure.

S: Ok. Did I tell you I had my hair cut last week? (Oh boy, of all the silly questions to ask. I see her daily, as if she'd let go of such a topic on the second day itself!!)

M: Yeah you did. Its very nice. guys/gals get the drift. I am in two way hell here, and to make matters worse, the bell rings to tell me someone's at the door. With one phone to my shoulder, and the other in one hand, I somehow get to the door. Some salesman. I hate salesmen. I put both phones down, and try n get rid of him. Persistent as they are, he kept trying n trying till I got steamed and banged the door at his face. I flopped down on the couch, picked up the phone.

M: Hey sweetie, I got another call. Could I call you back later??

To my shock,
Caterer: WHAT?? What did you say sir?

Bas, Vinay flat. Luckily enough, the caterer was my friend's mom. She was able to understand my predicament and didn't cancel.

Moral: If I ever get a job as a telephone operator, I need lots and lots of practice!! :)

It was a typical Indian wedding ,with all the Vedic chants and other hordes of such rituals.At last,came the time when the bride had to bid farewell to her parents and kin to enter another household. Its usual for the bride to cry on such occassions.So began the "Great Crying Competition". The bride,her mother,her sisters and almost all women present in the vicinity.Just imagine 50 or more women crying.. The men grew quite emotional too.Some oldies joined the troupe too.The hullaboo reached its peak. Just then,the groom,who was supposed to leave gallantly,asked for a kerchief.Maybe to wipe sweat,someone suggested. But all of a sudden,the "bechara"(meaning poor) groom started crying like babies,err the bride.Before you think of anything else,let me tell you,
he became too emotional and so....
Well,the bride stopped crying after that and there was very little "rona-dhona" after that. So while the bride was leaving her parents' home,she was almost smiling.After she left,all the guests present there had a hearty laugh.
Don't ask me what did the "Dulha" do...
P.S:Its a real incident that happened in my family in 1980s.Since then,it has become a family joke.
Keep smiling !

My Seminar :)

God has bestowed me, with a voice so nice,
That the teacher gives me, enough seminars to suffice,
Vinay do this, and Vinay do that,
Give a seminar at the drop of a hat.

Today, I had to give seminars two,
One in C++, the other in CIP too,
I hit the midnight oil yesterday, preparing for it,
So serious was I, I fell asleep with the light still lit.

With God’s grace, I was late for class,
I entered to see a new teacher, alas!
Hoping she didn’t know of my task, I sat down,
But she did know, as she told with a frown

She told me, Vinay start your seminar fast,
I took up my notes, and stood up at long last,
The class was asleep, I could tell with ease,
They told do awesome, wake us please.

My friends, applauded, as I started to speak,
The teacher looked shocked, my knees a bit weak,
10 minutes in, she still looked pale,
I stopped to ask for doubts, lest she made me fail.

The class, looked at me, and burst out loud,
Gales of laughter, were on me bestowed,
Now I was shocked, as I waited for them to stop,
Anxious to know, why my seminar was a flop

When I came to know, I joined the fun with a smile,
The teacher joined too, and we laughed for a while,
I’d jumbled them up, given the wrong one,
It was a bit embarrassing for me, yet all had a lot of fun.

Note: CIP is Constitution of India. :) Nothing whatsoever to do with programming.

Super Paru n DISHUM DISHUM sinusitis (?)…!!!

(warning: giv rest 2 yer brains..don't read this too many time and 'think'...!!! )

I luv being a headache…but I hate catching one…!!!

My war with the sinuses (Maxillary sinuses?…2 b precise) began ages back. When I was the cute (ahem ahem) school going kiddy!!!

…then I used to remain curled up…’ngee ngee’’mamma it pricks me too hard’…etc…

(n hmmm…I’ve got confessions 2 make…there were times when I feigned headache when calendar holidays never quenched my thirst…oops)

Ages passed by…physicians earned lots of bucks… (Personally I preferred the sweet yummy homeo medicines to the bitter Analgesics!!!). Amma turned ‘villain’ at times…pumping soaring ‘arishtas’, dipping me into steam (yukkk…ayurveda at times get un-palatable)

I grew up…!!! Sinusitis kept on visiting me…!!! I reached the medical school.

I caught a new illness ‘the medico syndrome’…

(Features of medico syndrome: Whenever a new disease is being learnt, you begin suspecting that you have it. For example, recently I went through the definition of ‘mental health’ in Park’s Textbook on Social and Preventive medicines…and I started worrying…’god…I am mad??? Sobbbb….’)

However…the new environment gave me an authority…the right to question dad or amma…whenever they rung me “monu…da…marunnokke mudangathe kazhikkane…” (Sunny…take medicines regularly…)…I would reply, “mamma…too much medicines kill my liver…!” (As if I mastered MBBS within weeks after I got admitted in the college)

Well the fact is…my mamma, a loving house wife is still better than me in ‘household’ pharmacology… (Reference…read the first lines in this link…autobiography)

I thought of redefining my illness as MIGRAINE…a more stylish name(different too)…and started searching the Textbook of Internal Medicine for the treatment…!!! Gosh…!!! It said…’life style modifications rock’

’What the hell??? My life is already full of style and you still want me to modify it???’

Yupp…oops…lemme cut this short… (sorry folks….)

The exam season. (2ND MBBS University…)

The worst days are back…The wicked headaches… No way…Analgesics will kill my liver, put me to bed…antibiotics will make the germs ‘more resistant’…I stopped taking medications…( the pressure of my exams really turned me mad…I lost my common senses in the pages of mammoth textbooks…

I tried real hard to fight the nausea…the auras…and all screwing symptoms of migraine…)


Nithin: “hey Paru…wazzup?”

Paru: “dey ninte oru vivaravum illallo?” (no news from ye…?)

Nithin: “ennaa parayana…s*%#%^ing headaches yaar” (what to say…head aches…!!!)

Paru: (sarcastically)“Ennittu doctor sir marunnonnum kazhichille?? (and doctor sir is still sitting without treating it??)

Nithin: (haughty, bossy, in Malayalam I call it jaada) Actually honey…NO…pain killers produce transient relief..and it’s too risky to try other medications now…can’t try my luck…what if I’ll fall asleep within the exam hall…

Paru: Nee ethu Ugandayile Doctoraa?? Naanamille?? Poyi aavi pidikkeda…. (Which world are you in?? Uganda?? Aren’t you ashamed?? Go do some steam inhalation yaar)

Nithin : hmmmm??? Grrrr….nee enne padippikkuvanno?? (r u trying to teach me? …grrrrrr)

Paru: aa then….marakkanda…Try Karvol Plus 2 add some menthol ‘flavour’ to the vapours… (aa..then don’t forget…)

Nithin: Kaaarvol watt??? (Though I tried pretending not to listen to what she was saying…I secretly scribbled it in my notepad…)

Next day


Amma: kochu…enganundu…? (dear…how do you feel?)

Nithin: Hey better…!!! Rocking…mamma…I tried a new prescription…ayurveda…it’s called Karvol Plus…few drops in the steaming water…and my head ache is off!!!

Amma: Yeah I remember that…karvol plus na??? the green capsule??? Yer grandma used to use it…I never bothered to try it it works ha…?


After few minutes I reluctantly hit an sms to Paru…”Hey buddy…my head ache is ‘gone with the wind!!!’…thanks yaar”

Paru’s reply: werz ma consultation fee?

Well Folks…the events taught me a lot….now whenever someone dials me for an advice on headache...the first thing I counsel is Steam inhalation with Karvol Plus…!!! And an ayurvedic preparation named SEPTILIN…(Marketed by Himalaya Drug company)

Of course...when things go outta hand…antibiotics and analgesics come to the rescue…!!!

Niway… I realised is that a little knowledge might be dangerous and useless…and I have long ways to tread before I can comment on Internal Medicine!!!

Bolo paroo ki..jai…

(Paru is wonderful pal of mine…she’s ‘experimenting’ bio-informatics@ V.I.T…that means.. .non-medico…but she’s better known as a ‘walking medical store’…!!! )

(actually written ages back...when i was a toddler...still un edited...knowing nothing about the wonderful course i am taking the content might sound absurd...and i strictly recommend don't THINK...shut your brains off...this piece of 'almost fiction' is intended to flash harms intended)
