A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

For You, Gulshan, with Love!


It is always gracious of a reader, on a blog, to leave a comment. The thrill, the happiness that said blogger feels is quite something else. What if that comment, regular as they come for however the blog posts may be, are in limerick form? Not just a two lines, a few words of general appreciation, but a succinct slice of the essence of the post itself? You’d smile and jump for joy too, wouldn’t you, even if you aren’t the blogger? And secretly wish one was sent your way, even if you be a reader of the blog, or the comments 🙂 🙂

And when that said Limerick Commenter has a birthday, what virtual gift can one best give her? The joy of her own kind of lines, for a start, right? So here it is… a gift for the Gorgeous Gulshan Gev Bamboat, sometimes Aunty G, too, in the comments section of this blog, and other blogs/updates/posts right on time, each time, for a long time! Shail, thank you ever so much for introducing us in this virtual world 🙂 You are someone I have to meet, Gulshan!

The Gift (of) (for) Gulshan ❤

She’s who you’d call a poetic temptress

Her alluring verses and words never fail to impress!

You’d know her, if here, you’ve been sorta regular 😛

Her comments come in, right-on-the-spot-spectacular!

‘Coz they be ultimate 5 liners, her own brand, her specialty, the Limerick Seductress ❤


One more, with affection and sweet love, from a young ‘un who’s so taken up with your awesome way of writing, Stargazer aka Malavika, my student 🙂

‘Tis a special day today, the birthday of a Queen,
A Queen, who over the realm of Limericks reigns supreme.
In her hands, words like quicksilver meld and flow,
At her command, across paper they dance and go!
And many happy returns I wish– to this indeed, wondrous Limerick Queen!

It isn’t that good, and it isn’t really a funny limerick, but it is my first attempt at writing a limerick, and it was really hard to think up an idea!

Anyhow– many happy returns to Gulshan! May her limericks only get better and better! Please do tell her this from me! (Even if it is without the attempt at a limerick.)



Till then, here’s a toast to you…. 🙂 Stay as sweet and cheerful, loving and laughing, and blessed always! Happy Birthday Gulshan! ❤ You’re the best 🙂 🙂 Hugs!

  3. A perfect gift for the limerick queen
    who dishes out some exquisite cuisine
    All she does is wave her wand
    the limerick would be sitting in her hand
    and we will be left wondering
    what happened in between.

    Happy Birthday Gulshan.
    Usha, have to give it to you for such a wonderful birthday gift. I only wish I got one like this on my birthday. I know I have to work really hard to match Gulshan’s capabilities.

    Absolutely dazed
    Bereft of speech
    To all above — each
    With deep gratitude and joy i am crazed!

  6. Malavika dear, thank you for your limerick
    It has given me ego quite a big kick
