The Evening Tea.


The lights were switched on
every  corner  was illuminated
 the garden became  bright.
The breeze flowed gently
 there was a drizzle
and the moon was posted steadfast.
turned out to be an enchanting evening
 We gathered around for tea.
chatting and chuckling.
 The table was laid with 
Crisp vadas
 sizzling   samosas 
Gulab jamuns and hot tea.
Biting the vada dipped in chutney 
 and nibbling the samosas
we talked  myriad subjects.

 

The recent election in Tamilnadu
 where a nonagenarian and
an ailing woman  contested.
How money played the trick?
 the manoeuvres of both
were exposed  in spirited speech.
Economics found its way
 analysing how  the bear and the  bull
 are  fighting   at Dalal Street.
Swamy’s dig at Raguram Rajan
and Rajan’s inclination to quit.
The movies and their impact on the people
 came up in a rush.Rajini and Kamal
  as college goers at the age of sixty.
Meanwhile, the table became empty
as we unknowingly have gobbled
 all that had been laid.
The night grew dark.
