Quotable quotes and poetry-shoetry
The bet was on. The 'basket' gave me these 4 words: Films, Monkeys, Jaguar, Laughing'. And this is what yours truly came up with:
"Watching films helps humans evolve
like from monkeys to man,
Similarly, what differentiates men from jaguars,
is their ability of laughing to relieve stress"
I obviously am no Wordsworth!
But this whole stunt was inspired by Amir Khusro, one of the greatest poets in Hindi language. The 4 words given to him were: Kheer, Charkha, Kutta, and Dhol. This is what the master came up with...
"Kheer pakaayi jatan se,
Charkha diya jala,
aaya kutta kha gaya,
tu baithi dhol baja"
anyways, me thinks u did a great job! if nothing else, u have at least set me thinking how jaguars must be relieving themselves of stress - or for that matter, do they feel stress?
also, i must say, ur usage of 'basket' never fails to make me laugh! keep writing more interesting stuff! :)
