Ami

© Sreeja Banerjee  

I believe in love
not a bickering of the broken heart
I believe in love
with the tangled emotions overwhelming me
I believe in love
though there is someone who can see a cynic in me

I’m beautiful
not to the masses
I’m beautiful
to the ones I choose to show this trait in me
I’m beautiful
to those who choose to see this trait in me

I’m a poet
not by writing rhyming verses
I’m a poet
with the numbness, dullness of the poetic verses in me
I’m a poet
by being the person that is me

This poem was originally published by me on 04 Feb 2010 on Ch1Blogs of Cognizant Technology Solutions Pvt. Ltd. (when I was working there) on a poem challenge. My first poem ever!! 🙂
Reflecting, I believe, this poem still defines  the way I think about myself. What better day to re-post it than on my birthday!

P.S. The word ‘Ami‘  means ‘me‘ in my vernacular language.

Birthday Wish List

So it’s 25th October tomorrow! I have been thinking over a month about what i really wanted for my birthday! I thought and thought and thought! And finally this is what I have come up with :

1. 36 hour work days – 24 hours is just not enough! I’m sure that all us human beings could easily manage a 36 hour! Of course we might need a nap in between… but then who doesn’t enjoy a power siesta!! 😀

2. Cloning Sreeja – That I should be able to clone myself so that Sreeja-Work could work all the time and Sreeja-Personal could have fun all the time. Of course they would be swapped every 2 weeks so that they both lead a very balanced normal life and the work does not suffer! What more, this way I get to have a 48 hour work day! 🙂

3. A red scarf!

The third one was just an impulse addition while writing this blog. I have wanted a scarf for a long time now… not necessarily for a birthday present! But then what’s wrong in including this one in the list, at least one would get fulfilled (in this lifetime) that way 🙂

P.S. I did gift myself a pair of awesome boots and some other stuff I better not talk about on my official blog a few days back! But they were all pre-birthday stuff 😉

Doing what I do most

That is clicking my own pics! This iPhone is not good. For that any smart phone is not. It has a cam. The quality is not good enough for you to take decent snaps. But then it is not bad enough for you to want to carry a camera with you. So currently I am, out of laziness, stopped taking decently good pics with my low profile cam as I carry my phone all the time . Even if I want to take out time to take decent snaps, too much pressure of coursework and research is keeping me off it for now. I will try to get back into the habit soon. 🙂
