Of Stars and Gold


Our craving for gold in London Olympic reminds me a couplet I read in class X in Hindi.

सुवर्ण को ढूँढत फिरत कवी, व्यभिचारी,चोर .
A poet is always looking for a good word                          (su varn)
An adulterer looks for someone with a good complexion ( suvarn)
A thief is always looking for Gold.                                     (swarn)

In the  zero period there was a pact between me and my students (class IV) that if (we) Mary Kom wins a gold medal then every student of the class would get a Red Star on the Star Chart.
May they get a red star now and always.

Come on Mary !!
