It's not about communication, but comprehension!

I saw a person, fencing a piece of land,
By nature, he spoke more than the work in his hand;
The lady next to me had to comment,
People who speak does not have work intend;
I smiled within and thought, she is just an ignorant.
A few days later we were together and she made an announcement;
She was speaking of a lady very active and vibrant;
Another lady made a comment on the topic relevant,
‘Oh! That lady you are talking of, talks a lot to befriend’
‘Communication is the key to success’, replied the announcer without any offend;
I looked at the first lady’s face with an intend,
Gosh, I realized she always commented being superficial observant.
My ever-thinking mind wanted to add its two cents,
Before it could allow the thoughts to rent and be my tenant,
“It’s not communication but the comprehension that adds value to relationship increment.”

Your mother informed that you have already started.” she said. “I thought I will talk to you in person since I already had started, hence did not bother to call back.” I replied. “I was wondering if you would make it or not. I almost had dropped the idea of participating, later when your mother said that you have started, I hurried up.” She said. “hmm.....frankly I went to bed late. My daughter was in a playful

Bengaluru Calling! the pull factors of migration.

(Migration to Bengaluru - how the problem of population due to migration be solved was a topic of assignment for our creative writing class. Bangalore being home for me this is how I look at it.) It’s not every place on earth where bright sunlight lashes on the face and the cold breeze chills the body at the same time. Not every place can exercise diversity. From early morning variety dosa to late night smoke breaks; From temple walks to bike rides; From pool side beer to traffic in the burning sun; From non-stop chats to serious weekend talks; From street beggars to IT jobbers; From theatres to multiplex cinemas one can see extremes in any aspect chosen. Such a free city is ‘Namma Bengaluru’, and that is why a lot of people hope to come here. So, evidently there are many economic, social, and physical pull factors why people migrate to Bengaluru.  The first thing is a ‘brain-drain’ of IT hub. However, Bengaluru is not only IT capital but also capital of aeronautics, automot
