It’s time

SDC12637

She was a voice I used to wait for
Finishing all the physics chemistry by nine
Making maths and earphones ready to adore
The joy of studying with a company benign

Taking requests from creepy callers
Making them feel at ease by chirpiness
Giving a glimpse to the Russian cultures
Five hours of unperturbed happiness

But leaving the city changed the radio
And I missed the familiar soothing voice
Now back after half a decade to the stereo
The welcome note from her starts the time to rejoice

twitter

A tribute to my favorite RJ who made sure that I was glued to the radio set everyday for five hours straight along with which I used to study for the entrance exam of colleges. The exam was cleared and I tried to call her several times to express my gratitude but the lines of wonderful RJs are mostly busy. Thanks to Twitter, the old dream of conversing with her came true πŸ˜€

If you are by any chance reading this, I thank you RJ Rhicha for your huge contribution in the achievement ofΒ my goals. πŸ™‚

This was in response to the A photo a day challenge by QuirkyshineΒ – An inspirational survivor and a wonderful poet. Do check out her blog if you haven’t till now.

        Hey bhagwan! πŸ˜€
        I’ll still agree πŸ˜‰
        Yes, my internet ditched me last night after every one minute. Somehow I could post that. Now when it’s working I’ve to go! So many posts to read here. However, my weekend is still better than your joke πŸ˜€

    This poetry is so cute.
    You know, very few people have the talent of gratitude and you are one of them. My respect for you has increased quite a lot from this post! πŸ™‚

    P.s Even I wish to listen to her.

      Hehe! Yaay! Thank you, Preeti. But sometimes, I do feel that people do not get the gratitude they deserve from me because of my laziness :/
      I hope I improve with these words of yours πŸ™‚

        Hehe! Lets decide a pact, “We, hereby promise to show gratitude whenever required.” πŸ˜€ We can atleast get smiles on some faces by that.

      So we all have a radio crush πŸ˜€
      And I understand. It is too hard to let go of college addictions – whether of radio or of the people πŸ™‚
      Thank you. And sweet reminds me, will wait for a post that contains sewaiyan from you. πŸ˜›

        Years ago I had a friend in the neighbourhood who always brought a huge bowl of it for us every Eid. Now that his family has shifted, I kind of miss it πŸ˜€

        I am more than sure that you’ll find a much more beautiful way to do that. But don’t worry, it is not an obligation. Just a suggestion. πŸ™‚
