Leave it to Holmes

Leave it to Holmes.

I knew nothing about
Jeremy Brett
until yesterday
read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
a lot in my teens.
Hope this is not a sin.

I know Vidya Balan
She is really very cute
I read about her in newspaper
She is now the hot Bengali girl
though she is not.
I have not seen her Kahani
nor the dirty picture before.
Such things happen
because there is no multiplex
in my city yet.
The small screen is too boring
to erstwhile cine goers.
Hope Vidya will not be annoyed.

Be it his appearance or voice
Amitabh is always great.
Be it “Rango bharose bheege…” or
” Jadi tur dak sune keo na ase
tobe ekla cholo re”.
Am I a purist Tagore fan?
not perhaps
but this song has always been
my favorite.In fact
it injects
courage to your veins
to move alone.

Pansies were absolutely absent
in my dictionary till day before.
Now I know they can not write
good poems.
Me too a pansy I guess.
Presently I have
a turban and a cap
But I’m no Holmes.
He was the only master.
I can only imagine a ship
sailing to African shores…………
