(MODIFIED 3 TIMES IN 5 YEARS)

First edition- 2009

Second edition- 2011

Third edition- 6th January 2014

Passing through the woods of dreams, I came across a glazing fruit hanging from the tree of fate.

I got tempted, wanted to have it.

I threw the stone of luck, it missed.

 I looked for the ladder of cheating, I couldn’t lift it.

Exhausted, I wanted to retreat.

Whoosh!!

The breeze of determination brushed my senses.

A flamed, I took my bow of devotion and shot the arrow of endeavor.

Bull’s eye!! The fruit detached. I sprang, to hold my reward, holding and savoring the luscious fruit.

 **In order to make this modification meaningful and clearer, let’s start with previous versions**

 

THE WHEEL OF TIME

Yesterday, I was remembering the show “into the universe with Stephen hawking” and I would have kissed him, if he had really been successful in making time machine because I really got tempted to know the third modification of the poem written by Rajeev. Before remembering Stephen hawking I was taking a glimpse of my 10th class slam book. Then suddenly, I jumped to second last page to transform the glimmer light of flashback into dazzling light, after seeing question mark in front of Aim- in the 3rd page, slammed by Rajeev. And, I thumbed my nose to Stephen hawking, as this second last page has teleported me into the year 2009.

What a blissful feeling, feels like a bird: I said. Yes, finally the most awaited day has come and what a happy ending of our X boards exam, isn’t it: He said.

Yes, now next is XII board and most important the IIT: I said, I already get enrolled in ****** coaching center.

Yet confused, it’s too early for me to decide, I will look for more fruits hanging from the tree of fate: He said,

What… 😯 ? I said.         Nothing 🙂  : he said,

But I insisted to make it clear; because it’s very catchy or interesting line I have heard at that age.

He said: Aaa… actually I have written few lines and it is:

I got tempted, wanted to have it.

 I took my bow and shot the arrow.

 The fruit detached. I jumped, to hold my reward, holding and savoring the luscious fruit.

 (And it’s the same lines he wrote on second last page of slam book.)

Got selected in written, but disqualified in physical test, it’s very tough: he said. Next year I will not compromise my studies and especially fitness with other co-curriculum activities, one cannot excel in all field he want.

Same here, confused, whether opt for NIT or take a chance to drop: I said.

We both missed to shot the fruit perfectly, need more devotion: he said

Shut up!   😡  And change the line of your fucking poem, so that it emphasize more properly on our condition: I said

And what changes will you like to do in order to make it more perfect: he said.

Second edition- 2011

Passing through the woods of dreams, I saw various spiffy trees with robust and fascinating fruits

Greed shines in my eye, I conspire to have all

But it created hassle,

As according to law, I can have only one

Therefore, I strayed

Then,

I came across a glazing fruit hanging from the tree of fate.

I got tempted, wanted to have it.

I threw the stone of luck, it missed.

Now, I got obsessed, tried other alternative.

I looked for the ladder of cheating, I couldn’t lift it.

I thought it to be a mirage.

Exhausted, I wanted to retreat.

Hello Rajeev, looking very tough and fit: I said

Thanks, I know you are pursuing B-tech in Mining Engineering from ISM: he said, it’s very reputed as far as earth science is considered, he added.

Yes, it is: I said. So how’s the taste of your savoring fruits: I asked

Training of air force is about to over: he said

So, soon you will be called flying officer, great, its le—gen—dary…….yarr 😛 .

Your fitness and look is much enough to make me guess next modification in our poem: I said.
