Oval Doval was an egg
And what an egg he was
With a smooth and shiny shell
The loveliest egg you saw.

He was spherically dashing
Nothing about him was lean
He was much wiser than his uncle
Humpty Dumpty had ever been

He would roll around the park
But would not play with a ball
He knew that if it bounced on him
He would break, yolk and all.

He also would not climb
Walls and fences with his friends
His uncle had a great big fall
And after couldn’t be mended

So Oval whirled and twirled all day
While staying on the ground
Smiling widely at everyone
Bobbing his big head around

Then one day a crow flying by
pecked him on the nose
Oval said - if you’d nibbled my head
I’d be fried egg on toast!

A wandering “desi” and a corporate chicken who’s flown the proverbial coop is what I currently am. Have chosen the sultry island of Sri Lanka for my wandering/ experiential activities. Writing something- anything really, has been on the bucket list for a great old while. Finally putting some pixel energy behind the cause! This blog is about a wide gamut of stories, opinions, ideas, characters, storms in teacups, extraterrestrials, food for the soul (and some not so much), space (of the cosmic and personal varieties), cutting edge psychoanalytic analyses, and sunsets (Dysania-struck so probably no sunrises!) – all presented to you from a wide array of coffee shops across my modest globe-trotting sojourns. Here’s to enjoying the ride together!
