Six thirty in the gym,
I was wondering what to do
Aimless on the floor
And then I saw you

Six feet tall
And oh so fair
I knew you'd be older
But I didn't really care

You looked like a God, 
Half Perumal, half Greek
You were the kind of maaplai
My parents wanted to seek

I ran on the treadmill
Didn't notice my feet go sore
All I saw was you.
And then, some more. 

I thought it was infatuation
Harmless and hormonal, 
But it became something more
The moment I saw your poonal

And so I asked my Trainer
Cause Information is wealth
But then what he told me
Wasn't good for my health. 

My heart was broken
The sky fell on my head
Nothing could console me
Not even Nutella on bread. 

Tell me why, dear God
Tell me why, did you
Make the man of my dreams
Married and 42? 

The battle may be lost
But the war could be won
Please, Hot Maama
Tell me you have a son.

    There was once an Iyengar girl
    who did more ogling than tricep curl
    As it happened one day
    a hot maama came her way
    not Python or Ruby but an aged Perl

  18. The poonal reference is racist and parochial. It hurts the sentiments of a true tamil mannin maindan - that he should need a caste identity to impress women. Six feet and fair - they are also discriminatory.
    come to think of it, you are propagating an image of the ideal maaplai that is the exact apposite of a tamil mannin maindan.
    please write poems about captain Karrupu Singh who never says sorry because that is an emotion he has never felt. also mention that he has a white heart, and you want share that real estate with his family and the anonymous tamizhan who is the zamindar there.

  20. His son will be best case 18. You are 25. What is the point?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hilarious references to poonal and mamaa. But coming to think of it, why are you stereotyping "maaplais"?? The western influence has changed a lot of our Indian perceptions. Did this really happen or was it as usual a writer's dream? Desperately looking for a mama I presume. All the best!

    @KrishAshok: Nice epilogue...

  72. "I just like the tambrahm variety of men a little more than the others. :)"
    I'd like to say that I prefer the tambrahm variety a little less than the others cos they are such escapists and wusses. But that's just me. Maybe you like escapists and wusses.

    Stellar, to confer the least.

    And in the blogosphere,
    Comes as Chutney Case!
    Adored like Britney Spears. ;-)
    With wit known in ilk of Brit,
    Sans any frown, smit or deceit,
    A talent so hard to gauge,
    Well-spent. Alas, with no wage.
