Jumping Children go to school 2

Jumping Jumping Went To School

Morning, morning saw outside

Everything looks fresh, fresh, green, green

Felt to take long, long breaths

Want to be as fresh

Brush in mouth up & down, sideways

Sprinkled water to the face

Mummy calls to have some milk

Glimpses from the window

Birds chirping, hopping, hopping, tree to tree

Wondering, wondering where do they go

Questioning myself, do they have a school too?

Yells Mummy to have bath & breakfast

Oh! Mummy! Mummy!! Coming, coming

Jumping, jumping went to school  

Jumping Children go to school 1  

Nursery rhymes for children are to make know of the things of the world. Their vocabulary has to improve day by day. Their morning duties are compulsive to make them good healthy citizens of tomorrow. Slowly and steadily their queries to the world must be answered. They should always feel good to go to school, as it is a place of learning and knowledge building.
Some of my latest posts you have been reading are one such attempt. I am happy you all have been enjoying. Thanks

Chukku! Bukku!! Chukku! Bukku!!

Chukku! Bukku!! Chukku! Bukku!!

Historic steam engine from White Pass Yukon Route Railroad Skagway, Alaska.

Chukku! Bukku!! Chukku! Bukku!!

Chukku! Bukku!! came to town
People rushing to see train
Some buy tickets to go around
Station Master whistles – 3
Bell Rings 1 – Train at platform
Bell Rings 2 – Shall leave in few minutes
Bell Rings 3 – Shall leave in a minute
Chukku! Bukku!! Chukku! Bukku!!

 

Engine Driver Super Strong
Putting coal in fire
Though sweating shall not stop
Shhhhh sounds driver
Shhhhh sounds steam engine
Iron wheels revolve on rail,
Towns and cities, farms and forests passed over
Chukku! Bukku!! Chukku! Bukku!!

 

Place to place decades passed by
Whistles and horns of train
Set time for the world
Carried goods by the tons
People commuted to earn bread
Happy travellers saw world
Millions and Billions Miles it went
Chukku! Bukku!! Chukku! Bukku!!

 

Child on back, elders crawling, to imitate train
Entertained kith and kin
Oh! Now a rare sight
Sighting train happy children
Jumping on toes, counting bogies
Bye! Bye!! On platforms was for some
Parting life forever, now a bygone story
Chukku! Bukku!! Chukku! Bukku!!

 

Diesel engines arrive at stations, go in subways
Electric trains, Bullet Trains replace show
Less sound, more fast, pace of life super fast
Hurry and worry take the toll
Cheerful journeys down memory lane
Like all obsolete now in museum
Poor Chukku! Bukku!! Great Chukku! Bukku!!
Chukku! Bukku!! Chukku! Bukku!! Chukku! Bukku!!…

 

Chukku Bukku is the nick name of the steam engine train usually addressed to children whenever referred to trains in India.

 

Hi All! This is the story of a steam engine train that served human kind for decades. The joy it had brought during the millions and millions of miles it travelled, transported goods and took passengers for happy rides. I have seen live drivers putting coal into the fire, preparing the train to move for miles. How grateful we have to be for it. Whenever it went cross country people used to set their time and that was the sign for their routine. I do not know how many times I have counted the bogies and made others to count. Hahaha!!
The journeys where slow though, but would make it very enjoyable. We would get to know co-passengers, talk to them, shared thoughts and eatables also. In a journey of a few hours they would turn to be great friends, help each other and be like a family. Sometimes the friendship would continue for some even after the journey. I think such experiences are with so many readers of this post. They could explain their own anecdotes.  
Surprisingly and strange today’s journeys are very individualistic. Passengers and commuters are busy with their own self, I mean especially busy on their phones either talking, texting, playing game, reading or even blogging. They seem to be not aware that living persons are around them. At the most some may give a smile.

It is always an opportunity to mingle with people share thoughts and ideas and even exchange cultures. I see many of my friends here in WP are a sort of that essence and nature. Super fast life has cut down journeys which could be happier and worth the travel.
Having kept these golden pieces of travel icons in MUSEUM  is one great act of gratitude and remembrance. My Salutations!!!

While I first started to see movies, there weren’t with much special effects given in the background. Now as movie making has advanced it is the role of special effects, the sounds, lights and many other things they create to make the movie creative, effective and interesting for viewers. This makes it thrilling as well.

The fights in movies, as you all know, is more of special effects. The Sound they give as one gives a punch is something special, it may be something like this as Dishoom or Digg or Thug a very special sound that makes one feel that the punch was nice. Hahaha I have taken it as ‘Dishoom” here. The sound may change from country to country or movie to movie. I hope you enjoy the words here as you enjoy the sounds there. Thanks

Entering My Sanctum Sanctorum

Deep Sleep Image 1

Entering My Sanctum Sanctorum

Visits to myself long since oblivion
Though frequent are visits to the shrine
In deep sleep of nights, relaxed day naps
Stressful, restless, tired body and mind enter
Out to come free, energised feeling blissfully fresh
To handle again awful routine
Unwillingly to continue though
Troubles to open many times over
Vigorous attempt to unlock door
Angelic perception signs to calm mundane mind
Not knowing when I enter into deep sleep
I reside in the heart centre of my slumberland
Every time entering my Sanctum Sanctorum

 

Like Tree..I too

Posted on Updated on

Like Tree..I too

Like the tree branches look

to reach sky Up

 

Like pleasant cool breeze shaking leaves in harmony

to say as if I am coming Up

 

Like this whole scenario seems

to laugh and smile at earth from Up

 

Like the tree, baby spreads arms and waves

to call it’s father to carry and lift Up

 

Like the secret desire it is bound

to approach better heights Up

 

Like the tree, I too secretly desire so

to be one into the sky Up
