And one another day, too long too boring, again something usual paved my way!

I cursed the rising sun, and the chirping birds,”stop that sound”I exclaimed, and had my windows shunned!

and then I started the horrible day, cursing the traffic all the way’

and lo! one another misery” started grinning at me,

damn! my admit card! damn the examinations! how awful can this day be?

”still not done” -the ugly devil smiled at me again, and thence all my pens gave up!

I cursed the pens but then a friend flicked another misery off me! and thus i completed my exam….

On my way back home i cursed my life, yes! this miserable life! the horrible spells it casts on me…

And then I saw slum along the roadside,” damn! these rag-pickers, and i cursed their unhygienic withers,

Besides one tent house were two  little girls, flawlessly expressing the skinny curves,

Dancing on song they themselves must have composed, draped in one piece of cloth, laughed and felt no

cold !

I looked at them in awe and surprise, how could their smile be so genuine and wise,

I wondered what misery befalls upon them everyday,but how are they still so happy and gay!

Do  they ever curse their impoverished life, or the chilly Monday mornings, or the helplessness after forgetting their examination card?

Or do they still smile and dance on the spells and thrive,flaunting their skinny arms and exploitative life?

Wondering this I went back home,”damn the curses” I said, and again cursed my curses!
