My tryst with wordsmithing

Jai Hind

Galvanising the nation’s collective to do a task is hard. To be able to accomplish this is brilliant. Outcomes happen only when the true spirit is understood and done with intent. When the intent is a bit ethereal, it is hard for general intelligentsia to grasp it. Sadly it is gets misinterpreted and action messed up. Simple intent, simple actions with clear outcome may help. Dear God, help us act sensibly and stay true to the spirit of the leadership. My feelings versed in “Jai Hind”.

After many frustrating attempts I modified it with length of a line(instead of word) to a digit of pi. Here is the creative as “A pi-em”, consisting of 11 lines that represents pi to 10 digits i.e 3.14159 26535 .
=> 1st line = 3 words, 2nd line=1 word, 3rd line=4 words and so on.!

Go, Corona, go

A tiny invisible fellow from the east burst into the scene and out went protests and polemics. Now everyone is sitting at home busily engaged in studying at whatapp university, devouring news, some working at home, some busy suggesting traditional medicines and interesting animal concoctions that they have never tried to others. Washing hands frequently, and wishing Covid19 does not find them, they post away to glory.
