Scrambled Egg

Want this ,
Want That,
But get not what I want,
Sometimes, It’s tit-for-tat,
Or simply brick-bats,

Crib on this
Fuss on that,
I eat more and get fat,
I never “have” but always “had” !
Good sometimes, But mostly bad.

Jealous of this ,
Envious of that,
He has this, he had that,
Keep consoling I was better,
But still come out a cropper.

Life is like a piece of cake,
Only too many things at stake,
Or too many mouths for the only steak,
God ! please give me a break !

Somebody give me the answers I beg,
Coz all I’m trying to do,
Is unscramble my scrambled egg.!

You Can’t unscramble your scrambled Egg !

Gyanban's thoughts -

I thought about this at the breakfast table one day,when my scrambled egg wasn't done well,I tried to fix it at first,
put some butter,added some pepper,still no good,toasted some bread,still not enough perfection,garnished it with
some coriander,I thought maybe the look and smell would make it different.

It occurred to me..this is exactly what happens in real life.We try to over work the solution...but - hey there isn't one sometimes.If you have screwed it can't unscrew it.what is done cannot be undone.We chase perfection all out lives , yet many don't die happy....similarly, some of our actions and deeds once done, cannot be undone no matter what the measure.
Therefore,peace of mind will be in acceptance,then realization,and then making sure
you have learn't something from it. History will therefore never repeat it self.

Enjoy the bite !

  1. great conclusions about life...hits you at strange times...very spiritual moment!

  2. Quite right - you never know how your scramble turns out to be...

  3. You have co related life and scrambled egg very nicely. Some things cannot be undone, especially words which so spontaneously come out of our mouths.

‘I need some rest, else I’ll be late for school.’ she said blurring.
‘The doctors are on their way’ he said. She stood motionless, staring blankly at the cameras, Volcanic debris had trapped her legs.Hidden below the ground, gangrene ate into her calves, as she faded.13 year old Omayra’s death was captured live.

Gyanban Thoughts - Nevado Del Ruiz volcano erupted on November 13,1985 which killed nearly 25,000 people in Armero, Columbia. Omayra could have escaped, but stopped to save her sibling from the oncoming volcanic lava. Her legs got trapped in the deris of her own home.When rescue teams arrived they realized that she could not be extracted without amputating her legs. She died with gangrene and hypothermia.She began hallucinating in her last moments. World news covered this they say saw Omayra die a slow painful death.For 3 days her pain and agony was captured by television crews but one photograph went on to capture the imagination of the world.

Hunger and shelter kill people.

Finding a place in the prime Borough is like finding a diamond in a coal mine. Mum used to say, learn to adjust, and you will find what you want. After all, these little adjustments, are a part of the fucking parcel of life. Huh. 

It would be exactly nine months on the first of April since I moved into the plush Toccata penthouse. It had soft caramel undertones on the walls and the Renoir’s, one on each side, caught my gaze on the first day. Instinctively, I knew, it was the house I wanted. As the landlady walked ahead of me, notes of coffee, pink pepper, cedar, and cinnamon oozed from her swaying hips, sucking me into a deep hallucinogenic state. Fuck me. 

I couldn’t bungle this one up, unlike the previous eight houses. Terrible, they were. “No late-night partying or substances, pills, injections, powders, got it?” She said breaking my gaze. Yes, she had the vocabulary. I am the shy type, so I lowered my head and nodded gently but my head was still spinni…


It's 5AM and the clock is late,
the rush to dress up and change my fate,
but the wrinkle is annoying the mane,
and the greys are flaying the vein,
I carry the mirror in mind,
leave the resigned sigh behind.

The train is packed with eyes,
I stand under the strain of lights
the dark skin is brighter,
maybe they'll like me better,
their shampoos leave no clue,
only the fan comes to my rescue.

Waiting for the elevator,
a minty breath drifts over the shoulder,
the noose around my neck chokes
gasps for breath and the heart pokes
the lights are incandescent inside
empty faces on the outside.

The tube-light and the guard flickers
People wearing strange monikers
floating close to the floor
a door opens, the stupor
he sashays along leaving them behind,
my eyes lose him and hope to find.

Clocks go by and the hours shiver
the cardigan shrugs off and the  lips quiver
a sudden surge of reason, cold air ,
aimlessly slides off my ruffled hair
witness  to the porcelain teapot stare,
bits an…
