The pilgrims’ progress in this world

A Friend I Lost


This friend I lost, a shock that numbed the pain;
Together we embarked on friendship for
Decade, and He, behind me stood in rain
And shine; can I forget ever? Never.


(We were at Chowmahalla Palace – Pleasant times were they
Ten days have passed since you passed away
Can I ever reconcile to your absence? No way
In gratitude, Srinivasu, for ever I will stay).




A proud remembrance lingers still in mind,
Of that eventful day in time bygone;
Today the pride rebounds, as mate and friend
of class, is Vice President to nation.

Alma Mater

Nostalgic wave of times at school, enter
Our minds, as we, together stand steadfast
To lend support to our Alma Mater,
A matter dear to us, until the last.

School Mates


A still in time of mine, with King and mates
Of class at school, the birthday special, had
Me joyous, midst buddies: never abates
This mirth of childish days; it stays, with glad.
