Attendance List (Detain List)

At IHM Goa, attendance is a big issue and one will only realize when the days are near. The below was written sometime around March 2010. I will like to share this poem of mine with Divyesh Kamble as he would have felt the same (mostly) however the copyright belongs to me. Here’s a piece of my mind then.

From Days to Weeks,

Was a rest itself,

I will attend next day,

I said always.


In that time,

I did nothing myself,

Soared in attendance,

And Cursed Laziness.


In due Time,

In years end,

I realized,

My attendance cursed himself.


Where’s the list?

I asked myself,

Behind are 16,

and I 17th.


Due to attendance,

I lost my pride,

Swallowed my thoughts,

And kept it aside.
