Vasant Valley             3


They wake up early in the  morning,

And read the newspaper (how boring).

Breakfast is eaten in a hurry

"Will I be late for work?" is the usual worry.

When they watch the weather on telly

They get terrified by the heat wave in Delhi.

At work:

Boss: All of you for lunch I am treating.

Grown Up: Sorry I have to go for a meeting.

There are so many advantages at work,

And their responsibilities they never try to shirk,

Because they love to work, work and work.

Going into their world, I’m not looking forward to

Because of the amount of work I will have to do.

So I just hope I remain under 18 forever

The thought of their world fills me with terror!

I always wanted to be an adult,

And become a grownup fast

Wanted to forget about my Hindi Lessons

And the years of slogging which had passed

I thought being an adult was easy,

No homework, no teachers, just fun

Go to the office, type a few letters,

And all your day’s work is done

But its not at all like what you just read

Its much more hard work than that

Phone bills, rents, fees, and fines

A burden to wear a grownup hat

But I eat, I drink, have fun all day,

Live a life at their expense

Adults worry about deadlines and waistlines

About the problems that makes them tense

So after thinking for some more time,

I’ve come to a wiser decision

That I don’t want to grow up after all

And that my final statement!

Medha Basu


The world of grown ups is so very strange,
The wackiest weirdest world in God’s range,
Grown ups really boggle my mind,
Let me tell you they’re one of a kind.
Mummy can never decide what to wear
She’s say " Should I wear a silk, a chiffon or the fur of a polar bear?"
And she tells me that I can never decide!
Anyway, lets put this matter aside.
What about Daddy? He’s at work all day
He talks to people, and shouts at people, and works very hard I must say.
He’s always out on meetings,
And does all sorts of serious things
But when from work he has come
To be with him is lots of fun
When I ask Mummy to buy me new shoes
She’ll say "No! you have too many and you know that too."
And then she buys new shoes
Whenever she goes to a shoe shop.
I ask why she’s buying shoes for herself and not for me
To which she’ll reply "Because I’m a grown up and you’re not"
But Daddy on the other hand never says no
Then Mummy’s face goes red and begins to glow.
That’s why I say that the world of grown ups is very strange.
The wackiest weirdest world in God’s range!
