The Square Root Of Three




I fear that I will always be

A lonely number like root three
A three is all that's good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath a vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine
For nine could thwart this evil trick,
With just some quick arithmetic
I know I'll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality
When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three
Has quietly come waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer
We break free from our mortal bonds
And with a wave of magic wands
Our square root signs become unglued
And love for me has been renewed.




This is a poem from the movie : Harold and Kumar escape from Guantanamo Bay. I know this is not my original work. But this is very close to my heart :) And it speaks a lot to me, and many many others :) Enjoy!

होली के बाद आज लैपटॉप के की बोर्ड को सूरज की रोशनी दिखाई है, इनके उजाले में "परिस्थितियों से भागने के बहाने जिंदगी की कशमकश और रोमेंटिक अवसाद के पलों को सजीव करती एक कथा से" गीत की खुशबू बिखर रही है आपके ब्लॉग पर ! रात बेग़म अख्तर के स्वर में फिराक़ की ग़ज़ल बजायी थी उसका एक शेर मेरे ऊपरी खाने में अटका हुआ है अभी तक.
मुद्दतें गुजरीं, तेरी याद भी ना आई हमें
और हम भूल गए हो तुझे ऐसा भी नहीं !!

Satans Darling™ said...

Haha Seno... You and your world class expressions! :D Glad you liked it!

Satans Darling™ said...

Hello Dream'R :) Welcome to my blog! And yeah I did not like the second part of Harold and Kumar much... And the first part, well I watched it like what 4 years ago when my idea of humor was quite different :P I still enjoy the first part though, every once in a blue moon.

And yeah, the poem is too good!

Interesting! I don't quite recall listening to this in the movie. Hmm, remind me, if you ever read this comment. Thanks for sharing this.

It's in the last scene of H&K part 2, where Kumar crashes into his lady love's wedding celebration and asks her to marry him :)
