Guest Post: Champion for a Day!

All my readers who keep visiting in a hope to see any of my blogs some day make sense, you are in for luck this time. I won't be writing this time *excited cheers and applause*. I am posting a guest blog by tafosi, my very good buddy right from my UDCT days in Bombay, who endured my antics for years and the very mood of his post reflect the lunacy my association has imparted on him. I am proud to have made a difference in someone's life.

Jokes apart, tafosi is a wonderful writer who has penned some deep, thoughtful and at the same time humorous stuff in his personal blog, "Snapshots From a Dream", but has stopped abruptly for reasons beyond my understanding. May be he is just jealous of my writing that sent him into delusions. He has to remember that these are the days where mediocracy, stupidity rules the roost. (I am sure Bush would vehemently vouch on this). He had a guest post long time back on Megha's blog too.
I sincerely hope he starts penning on his own blog.

Anyhoo, here's tafosi and his deep writing about "A Day In The life of an invisible man whom nobody notices and feels so unimportant".


Champion for a day.
  But that's what he was.
    A seemingly insignificant thing.
      Yes, someone else will be happy.
        For him, what difference does it make?
          A small island in an ocean of discontent.
            In his heart he already knew.
              It won't change anything.
                It won't matter tomorrow.
                  Demons will return.
                     As good as it feels.
                  Demons will return.
                It won't matter tomorrow.
              It won't change anything.
            In his heart he already knew.
          A small island in an ocean of discontent.
        For him, what difference does it make?
      Yes, someone else will be happy.
    A seemingly insignificant thing.
  But that's what he was.
Champion for a day.

    So since you made a "difference" in somebody's life, then are you the "champion"?

    I assume from the smiley face at end of your comment that you are happy about it. I did it again.
    But if you didn't mean, how could you even think that I write anything interesting. How could you?

    (tafosi)
    I would like to be called just a King Maker. Its like this Mr. tafosi, who would you owe the success of New England Patriots. King-maker Bellicheck or the King Brady? ha bolo..bolo!

    A post like this,immediately after the mouse post definitely means that you didn't have breakfast in the morning.
    Jokes apart,your friend writes really good , though I am lame to make such comments.
