ಸೇಮ್ ಟಿಂಗ್ ಮಾರ್ಚ್ 31, 2009

Posted by Bala in ಹಾಸ್ಯ, ಹರಟೆ.

Walking through Chinatown, a tourist is fascinated with all the Chinese restaurants, shops, signs and banners. He turns a corner and sees a building with the sign, “Hans Olaffsen’s Laundry.”

“Hans Olaffsen?”, he muses. “How in hell does that fit in here?” So he walks into the shop and sees an old Chinese gentleman behind the counter.

The tourist asks, “How did this place get a name like ‘Hans Olaffsen’s Laundry?'” The old man answers, “Is name of owner.”

The tourist asks, “Well, who and where is the owner?” “Me… is right here,” replies the old man.

“You? How did you ever get a name like Hans Olaffsen?”

“Is simple,” says the old man. “Many, many year ago when come to this country, was stand in line at Documentation Center. Man in front was big blonde Swede. Lady look at him and go, ‘What your name?’ He say,’Hans Olaffsen.’ Then she look at me and go, ‘What your name?'”

“I say Sem Ting.”

ಈ ಜೋಕನ್ನು ಕನ್ನಡೀಕರಿಸಿದರೆ ಮೂಲದ ಅರ್ಥ ಬರಲಾರದೆನ್ನಿಸಿತು.

ರೆಕ್ಕೆ ಬಿಚ್ಚಿ ಹಾರು ಮಾರ್ಚ್ 24, 2009

You were born with potential
You were born with goodness and trust
You were born with ideals and dreams
You were born with greatness
You were born with wings
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings
Learn to use them,and fly.

-Jalaluddin Rumi

ಸುಪ್ತವಾದ ಸಾಮರ್ಥ್ಯ ಸಹಜ
ಒಳ್ಳೆಯತನ ಹಾಗು ನಂಬಿಕೆ ಸಹಜ
ಆದರ್ಶ ಹಾಗು ಕನಸು ಸಹಜ
ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಠತೆ ಸಹಜ
ರೆಕ್ಕೆಗಳೂ ಸಹಜವಾಗಿರುವಲ್ಲಿ
ಸಹಜವಲ್ಲದ ತೆವಳುವಿಕೆ ಏಕೆ,
ರೆಕ್ಕೆ ಬಿಚ್ಚಿ ಹಾರುವುದನ್ನು ಕಲಿ

Man is in appearance a derivative of the world, but intrinsically the origin of the world.

– Jalaluddin Rumi

ನಿಸರ್ಗದ ಕುಡಿಯಾಗಿ
ಕಂಡುಬರುವ ಮನುಷ್ಯ
ತನ್ನಲ್ಲೇ ಒಳಗೊಂಡಿರುವನು
ವಿಶ್ವ ಉಗಮದ ರಹಸ್ಯ

ಗುರಿ ಮುಟ್ಟುವಿಕೆಯ ಆಶಯ ಮಾರ್ಚ್ 10, 2009

Posted by Bala in ಕವನ - ಚುಟುಕ, ಬದುಕು.

What you get by reaching your destination is not nearly as important as what you will become by reaching your destination.

– Zig Ziglar

ಗುರಿ ಮುಟ್ಟುವಿಕೆಯ ಆಶಯ

ನಮ್ಮ ಬಾಳಿನಲ್ಲಿ
ಗುರಿ ಮುಟ್ಟುವುದರಿಂದ
ನನಗೇನು ಸಿಗತ್ತೆ
ಎನ್ನುವುದಕ್ಕಿಂತ ಮಿಗಿಲಾದದ್ದು
ಗುರಿ ಮುಟ್ಟಿದ್ದರಿಂದ
ನಾನು ಹೇಗೆ ಬದಲಾಗಿರ್ತೀನಿ ಎಂಬುದು
