Limericks Poem: the little genius

Once upon a time in a land far far away,
was a village where twins Chinki and Minki used to play.
Chinki was smart, Chinki studied well.
Minki was brave, and Minki learned well.
Chinki is a genius her father used to say.

One day dacoits raided the village and tried to run with the loot.
They removed the guns and started to shoot.
The villages froze and started to shiver.
Cattles afraid, ran to the river.
But Minki acted smart and the dacoits had to scoot.

One day there was drought in the village,
dry spell destroyed the crops and foliage.
Chinki stood there watching like a fool.
Minki implemented irrigation as taught in school.
Thus she saved the day and her created a fresh tillage.

But at the year end her father scolded Minki and gifted Chinki a dress,
and why did he do that can you guess?
For Chinki came first in class.
while Minki managed to just pass.
He loved to see the paper and not the success.

P.s. I know its a bad attempt, but still a attempt. Tell me honestly what do you think.


  1. whatever it is ,its true! isnt it?
    at the end of the day parents want to see your f***ing report card? and not how well u did otherwise? hmm..gone thru it!! anyway not a bad attempt at all!!!


  2. @Neha
    Yup... the education system has failed completely, grownups have lied to the world...

    Thanks for support..:D

    I tried to write limericks...:D

  3. how are youuuuuuuu? long time.. :) am back yes and i missed my poems too.. how have you been..this place looks different.. and hey nice fun stuff i got to read when i stopped by a couple of minutes ago..shall come back for more.. :) and yup! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  4. I agree with Neha, at the end of the day for the years you are a student, your grades determine your level of intelligence and being a success or failure in life.

    It is a different kind of a poetic tale, but definitely a good attempt.

    Keep up the good work Sid. I am enjoying the vast variety of articles you';ve been writing lately.


  5. You can try your skills in the ad world my friend. Success will kiss your feet.

    P.S. - I felt like using some Siddhuism after reading your poem. Just wanted to say, it was good. Carry on.

  6. :) It was a good attempt. Kind of cute too. Limerick's form is also very strictly followed and message is brought out nicely.Applause for that. I am very bad in writing poems with rules,so I guess it gives you thumbs up from my side.

  7. @Rane
    welcome back to the other side of the world...;)

    Sure thing dear...take your time...:D see you soon...:D

  8. @Chatterbox
    Thats the saddened education system we have. This little poem was written in form of Limericks, each para has one limerick.:)

    The thing is, I wrote this after I talked with a girl who is under depression as her dad wants her to join software company...sad tale.

    I always try to deliver variety...:D thats my rule number 1.

  9. @Pramathesh
    I was working in a ad agency bro... that is my option after 30..let me hope it happens.

    Btw... how did u know about siddhuism??? its my blog of poems... did u explore my past?

  10. it was a good attempt. and you are right in this world only marks is what matters and nothing else. sad we live in such world

  11. Hey Sid..

    The best part is the message that it highlights..Grades, Marks, Scores have become the parameters of measuring success..

    Thanks buddy...I tried...:D

  36. Khoop the end, what matters is your marks :(

  37. Good try with a message attached to it. Enjoyed reading it. Your new template is good.

    There is one error in the header. It should have been "There is a funny story in everything", i mean the " ^ " sign should have been after "There is a" rather than before 'a' i guess or is it a deliberate mistake.

The moaning of life #2 Childhood Trauma

The entire shark family is out for a hunt, and the little fish are running for their life. We get to cheer as the Baby Shark does Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo with his family, calling on the family - extended family and sometimes robots on the 'hunt' because your offspring decides that that is the one song they want you to play or a tantrum follows. Many of you will say it's not the content but the catchy tune that draws the babies towards the nonsequential song, but it's more than that. It's the sheer repeatedness that draws your angst towards the piece. And YouTube provides the music based on how much time you want your baby to be engaged to it. You have a 60+ minute version and a 120+ minute version. The same shark family going out on the same hunt. And it's not just the Shark family. Weirdly, baby JJ and his family sing random songs, go on a holiday and even increase the family. I am talking about Cocomelon, which has arrived in your child's life as he murmurs t

We used to build civilizations. Now we build shopping malls.

The human evolution is a constant race against boredom, men have for generations tried to overcome boredom is many ways possible. In olden days, they got bored, they build civilizations, big massive civilizations. The ancient Egyptians had pyramids, the Babylon build the hanging garden for people to hang out. People from far and wide come to visit the Taj Mahal, praising its divine beauty, not knowing that it was build after the wife died, thus partly in guilt. Rome was not build in a day, indication they were super bored. Then came the great barbarian evolution and they started raiding cities. Don't forget Atila the Hun who constantly attacked cities whenever he got free time. Alexander was super bored and he decided to conquer the entire world, but while these men where attacking cities and building civilizations, the women where thrown into a abyss of impending boredom. What would Mrs. Atila do when her husband was busy attacking Rome? Or What would the wives of the

Short Story: Ginger Chai

This is my first attempt for writing a love story, which I am really bad at. Mani Padma (from Ginger Chai ) challenged me to write a love story a few days ago, it is not a real great read, but a little feeble attempt to take a taste in this genre. Please give your honest opinion… Cheers, Sid. *fingers crossed* Breathe in. Breathe out. Damm, this is so easy when you are not tensed. Why is this clerk talking so much time. ‘Will you hurry up?’ I asked the clerk. My finger nails were tapping the counter in excitement. My name is Shailaja, 30, single and employed, in short a perfect girl for the aunties, mammies to constantly remind me that my days are waning out, that I have to find someone before it is impossible for them to. It is not that I don’t want to get married, but I should get some proper match, isn’t it? All they show me is either short, tall, long nose, meaning some imperfection in some way or the other. I am not at all hopeless romantic and I am definitely not goin
