Wating For Take-Off - Poem by RAJ NANDY
WAITING FOR TAKE-OFF
(11 JUL 08)
Waiting inside Kolkata bound domestic JetLite
flight for take-off,
With traffic congestion in the Palam sky on top;
With my thoughts already having reached my
While the Boeing stood still without least
My patience started to erode and become thin,
When an urge to pen these lines came from
The Captain declared over the microphone, -
That the delay in start up was beyond his control!
A VIP flight was taking off from Safdarjung
airport next door!
As a result we had to wait for an hour more!
If we add up all our late hours on the road, in
trains, in queues, and in domestic flights;
It would perhaps give us a fresh lease of life!
(A medly of 3 poems inclusive of this one, along
with'IN FLIGHT' &'AT FATHER-IN-LAW'S BEDSIDE'
has been composed from my recent experience)
