To one and all who have been here and ones are to be here

Democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people.
Oscar Wilde
He is one of my favourites, the best writer in my books.
I love reading books, no matter how crappy they are.

Same with movies, Ilayaraja and A R Rahman are my favorites in music.

A Beautiful Evil

A rainy morning, never so bewitching than a strode along,
As I floated in nature's scent, into a mystical world,
Or was it just nature itself showing mirages of dew in thin air?
As I delved deeper, there was a Spider,
Who said "How do you do?"
Was I in Far Far Away? I kept along,
My eyes drew to a display of sensational colors,
The strands from Spider's web glistened to the darling Sun.
The arachnid gave me a fright, with charm,
Eight legs, made my hair raise in fear and splendor,
His steps did not trammel the petals nearby,
But never did he spare a bug that invaded his woven Home,
The dance to death was seduction of life itself,
A grace and a delicacy that was brutal,
An nimble architect's home that snares the life of a bug,
Yet the bug danced its way, to give life to this surreal intent.
