My Dear Miss Alaknanda

My dear alaknanda,
how r u?I haven`t seen you for so long that
I`m losing you!Do you still go to temple
wearing that red/white saree,looking like
winged houri-Do you still smile the same way?
all the heavens a-starry;How`s your husband?
How many kids you have?What names you have
given them?Does he takes care of you all the
time?How`s your mom and dad?How`re your
sisters(sorry,I forgot their names)Dear arti,
When I was a little boy I had a dream taht
someday I would become somebody,but alas!
I wish I knew where I`m heading -all the
distractions of fast-life & machines have
taken their tolls on me,making me desecrating
my dreams-Dear alaknanda,many a water then
passed between Thames & Thebes,I`m still
here waiting for you to come to my Venice
Where the Vinci,Rembrant,& Gogh shed the
unrequitted silent tears of Beliefs!
