An Ode to an Antipodean

Its 6am down under,
I am furtively glancing at the dials of my watch searching for her
The slow and dizzying hum of the electric fan
The whirring sound of the computer
The multi coloured hues of the modem
A strange and sublime madness engulfing a hazy horizon
And then she appears

A twinkle in her eye that signals many explosions in the sky
Patamboochis* play hide and seek with my groggy vision
And we discuss dreary tamizh songs
A light and steady drizzle outside adds to the ethereal feeling
Cliches are rattled off with amazing alacrity
Epicurean fantasies are discussed ad nausea um
Marghazhi Maasam kutcheris involving cerebral musicians
Quiet and introspective places to walk in Bangalore
Iyer weddings to gatecrash into
Manja pai maamas and Nalli maamis
Silicon Valley dreams
Paraapu Usili and Mor Kozhambhu
Derivative instruments
Bean counters
Insomniacs
Engaging weekends
Kurosawa movies


And then technology deceives us with its trickery
And it all ends
Unfulfilled desires and longings stay locked within the dark recesses of time


*Patamboochis-Butterflies
Marghazhi Maasam-Auspicious period between December and January celebrating the arts
Manja pai maamas-Avuncular mamas clutching a yellow satchel and pulling out things in a very Houdinisque way and commonly seen being at the centre of all activities at weddings
Nalli maamis-Self explanatory!!!
