The Miracle Did Happen…Thanks to the Lord the grace of God, we all managed to pull through.. The Paradigm was a grand success..With a crowd of approximately 4000, I feel proud to have been part of one of the grandest events in the history of my college. Thanks to TVS who sponsored an Apache RTR 160 just 4 days before the event, a 20k check from my junior, and a 10k check frm my classmate, and another of classmate’s dad who agreed to sponsor the food for the whole event, all these just 3 to 4 days before the event, we got through big time..

It was a mixture of fun, frolic, fights and technical events.. lolz..the comical thing is tat the whole team never got together to have a single photograph.. I feel sad about it.. bt nothing can be done about it right nw.. I’m very thankful and grateful to the team for being a part of this. There are no words to thank them, just a grateful heart.

Elegy on the death of my grandmother

Its hard to comprehend
These rules that never bend
The rules of separation
The rules of death….

Not a single soul is spared
Not a single life is safe
All laid naked ‘n bare
Upon that final cradle

When you become a child again
And forget all the pain
And go back to the land above
To where you came from..

A thousand deaths happen a day
All goin’ through that darkened way
But the sorrow that surrounds yours
Just won’t go away

The strength of my youth
Is passin’ by
The ones that were with me
Have fallen behind

I’m still waitin bidin my time
Unsure, unaware of when I’ll come
Come up there to be with you
And then…we can be together…forever
