In the short, hot hour that I was at Abids last Sunday I managed to find two books. A team from the Central Government was visiting the state so I had to go to the office and make arrangements. Another reason was that it was terribly hot because of the heat wave and I couldn’t be out in the sun for more than an hour. So I spent some time in the café sipping chai and talking about books and later began the hunt that did not last more than an hour.
I don’t mind eels
Except as meals
And the way they feels.
God in His wisdom made the fly
And then forgot to tell us why.
The cow is of the bovine ilk
One end is moo, the other, milk.
The ant has made himself illustrious
Through constant industry industrious
Would you be calm and placid
If you were full of formic acid?
