Come on Bas!-ards, Let’s Do Business!

The Market is insecure; because the Market knows it doesn’t have the wherewithal to be King. The market understands that the right product could have it in a bind of a kind that keeps a perpetual leash on the mind: so it plots, conspires, and sabotages, to the extent that it can have some reason to remain King, and unjustly so. The fear is not the insult of having to … Read the rest

About Islam, From a Logical and Observational Point of View!

Avishek Sahu
April 30, 2018

Muhammad is not Islam; Islam is Muhammad; Muhammad is greater than Islam, and the reason for style and glamor in the world. If Shiva gave us tehzeeb, Muhammad took that tehzeeb and gave us a heady concoction of style and tehzeeb. If the world today wallows in Fashion, Music, and Entertainment inspite of the serious conservatism in Christianity and other world religions, it’s because Muhammad stipulated the celebration of the … Read the rest

America, Please save America, if not for you, then just for the likes of us!

April 25, 2018

US always felt relatable from TV; not the New Yorks and the Seattles, but the Philladelphias and the Detroits. US was great because it was a blue-collar dream; it was the ideal manifestation of blue-collar prowess grown up from being exploited as labor, to calling the shots in the most unprecedented ways. US is US as long as US remains blue-collar. Aspiring to aristocracy may be tantalizing but can bring … Read the rest

About Taking on the Biggies!

April 25, 2018

All #CreateSpace and #Ingram ought to do is identify 5 books out of their platform that can make a killing in the market, and then go all out to reach every corner of the globe with these 5 books, either through established national level distributors or through expatriate hires in individual countries working for the sole purpose of getting these books to every corner of their homeland. Money to be … Read the rest

BRICS is for REAL!

Avishek Sahu
April 25, 2018

It is an established inalienable fact that the subcontinent and some other developing nations are treasure troves of English Writing talent. But the point is, they will never be published by the Penguins and the Harper Collins unless they get a creative writing degree from the Ivy League!

Given this scenario, it is sheer lunacy to not acknowledge the value that companies like #Amazon and #Ingram bring to the table … Read the rest

Avishek Sahu

This is a poem from the eponymous work of fiction by the same Author! This occurs in the last part of the book suggesting what the female lead had gathered out of the life of the male lead from the time they had shared together. The female lead–Sonal Dutta–happens to sell the rights to this poem that she had penned, to a Malaysian Rock Band that goes on to release … Read the rest

Just Another Day in The Life of A Gangster

Avishek Sahu
April 19, 2018

In the teens oh so beans wondering, where this all will lead to
Can’t be no gentleman with all that I had to now pay heed to
But life still had to go on and money still had to be made
If not with the jiffy of a collar, it had to come with the Ace of Spade
But the blot had so soon been absorbed, the law had taken … Read the rest

10 Things Indians will realize 50 years hence:

Avishek Sahu
April 16, 2018

1) Pakistan was created by the Temple to teach Hindus a lesson
2) Cricket is in the art, not in the records or money
3) What you are embarrassed of is always what’s saving you
4) Parents are always smarter, irrespective of generation gap
5) The Temple recommends pain for a reason
6) The world had always been laughing at us for seeking validation from outside
7) Food is everything… Read the rest

The Constitution of India

Avishek Sahu
April 15, 2018

There was a time the Temple did really well. The history about the Gupta and Maurya empires proves that the Temple along with the kings did a great job at managing society. People respected the temple as an authority because in those days, people saw material and spirit as a duality. Things were less explainable, so the spirit was more magnificent. You didn’t understand the spirit too well, so you … Read the rest

Not Yet Inc.

Avishek Sahu
January 29, 2018

Freed from the blame of the tall man so needy
Told you to bring back the days of the greedy
That would have been more fun in the roads full of laughter
If not the fun in the run, what the fuck were we after

Then came the view of the big house so pretty
And the folks all around just had their eye on the kitty
The boys in … Read the rest

Left on No-Man’s Land

November 30, 2017

Beat the gimp up and get the fountain out
Then we could sit on our haunches and have the honey spout
With fancy Crème to be peddled out loud
There isn’t much to miss to be admired and wowed
Hitch market was tough with so much to save
Nothing that had mercy, nothing of value that the cupid gave
But here came the bozo to helped keep the see-saw stable… Read the rest

Shit-Eating Mascots of Money

Avishek Sahu
November 24, 2017

Look who’s been plotting from the beginning of time
Massaging the infant with ounces of lime
Hoping for their prescience to lie about the future
And the dark black days needing no inch of suture
If only it had been theirs to keep
Or sown in their fields to bounce and beep
Or not taken from here to brandish as their own
With a literature too haute in which stalwarts … Read the rest

The Squeeze of an Agent Provocateur

Avishek Sahu
November 20, 2017

The shoes that I bring turns the knob on the people
When the shrink and the dink want to sob with the steeple
For a bipolar disorder that went past the finish line
And a new world order they had waiting in clound nine
If only they had known that the bungalow isn’t the source crime
But the harsh black letters begetting cash through the dirt and grime
Spilt while … Read the rest

Wallow In The Charms Of A Slapdash Succubus

Avishek Sahu
November 17, 2017

Woozy as a bozo about what keeps the ball turning
Crazy and so lazy about that that gets the mojo burning
It’s been oh so long since I chased a damn dame down
But the fruits of those days can only but make you frown
So got back to what’s best after those snuggling up embers
And got deep in the rut built to please the dear members
Singing he’s … Read the rest

A Broad That Has Mastered The Art of The Innuendo

Avishek Sahu
October 25, 2017

Got a whiff of the world when I was barely in my teens
Could hear the clarion calls of the eunuchs and the caged beans
It was a day in the school when the stench was all awry
And the gents in the park had their plans made for the quarry
Mrs Rand had written what was going to be checkmate
To soothe the egos of the dumb fucks and … Read the rest

Painted You Silly With My All Idealistic Broad-Brush

Avishek Sahu
September 19, 2017

Roamed the streets feeling merry from the betrayal
Let’s stretch it I thought to see how’ll be my portrayal
When a friend asked me to imagine a water body
And I chose a waterfall to see so much pain on a nobody
Didn’t take it to heart, I was young then but not so callow
I knew I’d win, but the hopes just couldn’t make me shallow
Didn’t know what … Read the rest

When I Saw The Monster in You…

Avishek Sahu
September 4, 2017

Writing so well, I thought I had it all cut out
To go on some far, thinking not about being put out
Till I realized a part of me was looking for some succour
Not from money in the wallet, not from a date with a hooker
You seemed so calm, talking about the worldly stuff
Not one to small talk, not one to leave off in a huff… Read the rest

The Punt is in the Wait for the Flow to hit Prime Time

Avishek Sahu
September 2, 2017

Never been enough to spend the days in such slumber
Wondering how it’ll be to wait for the next number
Calculated at last to do justice to the long drive
Made not on a hunch but for some Queen Bee reprieve
But ain’t I the one that ran away from duties
Tossing it all away with the money and the cuties… Read the rest

Is it my Dad or is it Me?!

Avishek Sahu
July 25, 2017

Have seen pictures of my childhood, never figured out what made me so happy
Looked for luxury in the background, found only my smile grown up from a nappy
There must have been an aura, or the wisdom you learnt in big schools
Or there must have been the wisdom that you brought when your Dad brooked no fools
Whatever it was, it isn’t easy living with that burden of … Read the rest

Mothers’ World

Avishek Sahu
May 14, 2017

In a world where it’s tough being alone
A mother comes along to let the truth be known
That in a solitude of a bird looking for a prey
Is a tale of two mothers sitting apart hoping for light of the day
Kept hostage by the tales of the night
When the owl shudders in spite of its vicious might… Read the rest

Playing Left With The Rock Band

Avishek Sahu
March 21, 2017

The schmooze in the booze wouldn’t keep up the downtime
When the rhyme gets the dime in the wink of a weed-mime
Nixed early in the soil to get you early to the center
Where you’ve been wanting so loud to fart when you enter
Your trip to the hills brought a tickle right down there
Thinking of you pushing with a glee of a stripped hare… Read the rest

Secularism Has Been Reinvented!

Avishek Sahu
March 21, 2017

Saba Naqvi writes in a TOI editorial that ‘There is actually precious little that the Indian secular state has given the Muslim community except to ensure that they live for eternity in the museum of stereotypes’. That is true; very true indeed; but that’s because the concept of the Indian secular state was created to give the Muslim community very little and fob off the consequence on the eternally repressed … Read the rest

Heady in the Habitat!

Avishek Sahu
March 16, 2017

Spun me a line to crease the pant I wore last time
What pant is a pant that won’t let me build a dark rhyme
That I need when the zip gives way to the fly trap
And the mood just don’t seem to snuffle her damn claptrap
With the grunt giving way to the schmooze of a lifetime
I can’t keep it apart for the birds singing two-time… Read the rest

Attrition!

Avishek Sahu
February 25, 2017

Most people when working in an organisation face this psychological situation where they think they are being underpaid, or that they are worth more. This is how it should be, because a platform is designed so you can perform on it, not sit back and sulk. At these times it is important to realize that you are not really being underpaid, that the organisation life-cycle at most times will not … Read the rest
