ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ‘ಸಾರಿಗೆ’ !

November 6, 2019

ಕೆಲವರಿಗೆ ಊಟಕ್ಕೆ ಕೇವಲ ತಿಳಿ ಸಾರು ಇದ್ದರೆ ಸಾಕು, ಬೇರೆ ಏನು ಬೇಡ.
ತಿಳಿ ಸಾರೆಂದರೆ ಅಷ್ಟು ಪ್ರೀತಿ. ತಿಳಿ ಸಾರಿನ ಪ್ರಿಯರಿಗೆ ಹೆಮ್ಮೆ ತರುವ ವಿಷಯ ಅಂದರೆ :
ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದಲ್ಲಿ ತಿಳಿ ಸಾರಿಗೆಂದೇ ಇರುವ ಏಕೈಕ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆ : ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಸಾರಿಗೆ!
ತಿಳಿ ಸಾರು ಅಂತ ಹೇಳೋರೆ ಕಮ್ಮಿ ಈ ದಿನಗಳಲ್ಲಿ…ರಸಂ, ರಸಂ ಅಂತಾನೆ ಹೇಳೋರು ಹೆಚ್ಚು.

Simplicity is the best ಎಂಬ ತಿಳುವಳಿಕೆ ಸಾರುವುದೇ ತಿಳಿ ಸಾರು !
ಏನೇ ಭಕ್ಷ್ಯ ಭೋಜ್ಯ ತಿಂದರೂ, ಯಾವುದೇ ಹೋಟೆಲಲ್ಲಿ ತಿಂದರೂ,
ಅಮ್ಮ ಮಾಡಿದ ತಿಳಿ ಸಾರಿನ ಮುಂದೆ ಏನೂ ಇಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ತಿಳಿ ಹೇಳುವುದು ‘ತಿಳಿ ಸಾರು’!

KAAPI NIRVANA
by Ramki Bellur

they believed that
a lot can happen over coffee

inside and outside the CCD
everyone will now realise
Devil’s Own can give
something that is not Perfect
an Eye-Opener Espresso
with a cup of Dark Frappe
Intensify With Sea Buckthorn
in an Inverted Cappuccino
as the Kaapi Nirvana
serves a hot Wakecup call

fate took him
as there are a few
Rush Hour Deals That Cannot Be Missed

when the Coffee Maker
loses the Zest and
runs out from the hangout
into the Dark Forest yield
it means
something unnatural is brewing

when the rich and aromatic life
is stifled out with a Charge like this
it is taxing and not an instant coffee

when HE handpicks us and
sends us here
we are bound to be roasted and ground
and for best results HE uses a Plunger to brew us

you need to be the strong coffee
with an extra dose of chicory
to jump start every morning
You need to have the great gift
to get your friends out of their beds.

but who imagined he would jump
and get us out of our beds with this ?
and that he would plunge out of the brew
into the eye of the river?

Literary Harvest
by Ramki Bellur

With his Kwik Gun and Wrong ‘un
Literary farmer Baradwaj Rangan
is here with his new harvest
his Reviews are top draw, always the best.

To relish the word’s worth see no further than Baddy
His interviews are as green as paddy
Just as the earth waits for the clouds to drop down as rain
We await BR’s books, which is as sweet as sugarcane.

We are awaiting a bounty from this wordsmith
who busts several well known film’s myth
Ask BR for a Bitty Rumination
Who are his fans? We the nation.

Similar to Pongal, we wait for Brangan
to spread warmth and illuminationwith his writing
He adds passion of Rice with literary milk and humour jaggery
A visit to BR’s blog helps us forget life’s vagary

Pongalo Pongal!
Rangano Rangan!

ಆಚೆ ಮನೆಯ ಸುಬ್ಬಮ್ಮನಿಗೆ SPOOF

June 1, 2017

ನಾನು: ಏನ್ ಸುಬ್ಬಮ್ಮ್ನೋರೆ, ಸೋಮ್ವಾರ ಏಕಾದಶಿ. ಎಲ್ಲ ರೆಡೀನ?
ಸುಬ್ಬಮ್ಮನೋರು: ಏನ್ ಏಕಾದಶಿನೋ ಏನೊ…ನನ್ ಕಷ್ಟ ನನಗೆ.

ಅವರ ಕಷ್ಟಾನ ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಬರ್ದಿದ್ದೀನಿ…ದಯಮಾಡಿ ಓದಿ!

ಸುಬ್ಬಮ್ಮನ ಏಕಾದಶಿ ಇಂದು
ರಚನೆ: ರಾಮಕೃಷ್ಣ ಬೆಳ್ಳೂರು

ಆಚೆ ಮನೆಯ ಸುಬ್ಬಮ್ಮನಿಗೆ
ಏಕಾದಶಿ ಉಪವಾಸ
ಎಲ್ಲೊ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ತಿಂತಾರಷ್ಟೆ
ಚಾಟ್ಸು, ನೂಡಲ್ಸು, ಪಾಸ್ತ

ಮೂರೋ ನಾಲ್ಕೋ ಕಲ್ಲಂಗಡಿ ಹಣ್ಣು
ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಭೇಲ್ ಪಾಪ್ ಕಾರ್ನು
ಘಂಟೆಗೆ ಡಜ಼ನ್ನು ಸ್ಟ್ರಾಬೆರಿಹಣ್ಣು
ಆಗಾಗ ಒಂದೊಂದು ಬೇಬಿ ಕಾರ್ನು

ಮಧ್ಯಾನಕ್ಕೆಲ್ಲ ನುಚ್ಚಿನುಂಡೆ
ಕಾಂಗ್ರೆಸ್ ಹಾಕಿರೊ ಉಸಲಿ
ಎಲ್ಲೋ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ ದೋಸೆ ಟೇಸ್ಟಿಗೆ
ಬೆಣ್ಣೆ ಖಂಡಿತಾ ಅಸಲಿ

ರಾತ್ರಿಗೆ ಪಾಪ ಫುಡ್ ಸ್ಟ್ರೀಟೆ ಗತಿ
ಒಂದ್ ಲೋಟದ ತುಂಬಾ ಲಸ್ಸಿ
ಪಕ್ಕದಲ್ಲಿರೋ ಲಸ್ಸಿ ಬಾರಲಿ
ಸುಬ್ಬಮ್ಮ ತುಂಬ ಫಸ್ಸಿ
