Poem…sort of…: No Time for Diwali

As busy as a bee
Work meetings, copies and Hindi
I have no time for Diwali

No fireworks, no diya,
On the road to Ayodhya
There is no light for Rama

As busy as Delhi
There is no ceremony
I have no time for Diwali

On A Message to India
Where is Lakshmi, where is Sita?
There’s no prasad and no puja

As busy à bee
I have just a freebie
For you, this महिली *


In Thar Desert, Rajasthan

  1. Namaste Marilay!
    Greetings from India

    You have no idea what pleasure it gives me to come across such a blog and be greeted by you in Hindi. Your posts are great! And your fascination towards India leaves me spellbound. How did you come to be romanticized by India’s culture?

    And by the way;
    Happy Diwali and Best wishes for Bhai Dooj (or Bhai fota)!

    • Hello! Thanks for you nice message!
      I don’t know how I started to be interested in India. I saw photos on the Internet, I saw a film; I don’t know. It is a mystery!
      See you!

  2. Bonjour de Pune,

    Tres reussi, ton petit poeme !
    En n”etant pas en Inde en ce moment, tu evites trois jours et nuit de petards sans presque aucune interruption (et un gavage aux sucreries !).

    Je ne sais pa encore si je vais trouver un magasine ou auelque chose d’equivalent en hindi, ici c’est du marathe.

    A bientot.


    • Ca va les oreilles et l’estomac? Tu te remets? Ne t’en fais pas pour les docs en Hindi. Si jamais, pique un magazine ou un journal dans l’avion ou ailleurs. Mais sinon, ce n’est pas grave.

  3. Hi! Just letting you know that I have nominated you for the “Very Inspiring Blogger Award” – http://screwiness-o-rama.com/2012/11/18/very-inspiring-blogger-award/ – congratulations! 😉
