I wrote this one when i was in school. Found it while sifting through my old diaries... Don't take it seriously. I was 15 when i wrote this. If you don't know about the story of king ashoka, you can read it here 


The horses arrayed side by side,
And men keeping the fullest pride,
Having prayed to the kali,
We thus began to ride.

The war clouds went dark,
And owls began to shriek,
And we in camps, began rejoicing,
For the enemy was so weak.

It began to drizzle red,
And red were land and airs,
But neither victory, nor defeat,
Came our way, passed years.

With the doors of Kalinga still meeted,
Our enemy remained undefeated,
With the giant gates our head we beated,
No answer came, no battle repeated.
The answer came at last,
But what an answer it was !
For there was an army of the softer skin,
To slay them, was a justless win.

My weapons dropped, so did my shield,
And under grief i began to yield,
How many men i killed in vain ?
With deep remorse i left the field.

Whatever evil gives pleasure today,
Leads to grieving at the end of the day,
Once look at me, O men of earth,
Before you pass the war god's way.

I am the conqueror of ruins,
The emperor of the dead,
A loser in the most hateful way...

How to write good answers in your exams... Caveman style !

Dear bored guys readers.. you already know Cruddy's story very well. This one is about his neighbour Professor Billeus Newtonsteineus who lives five caves next to the Cruddies. People call him uncle Bill (mostly behind his back).. that was supposed to be his real name but during his fresher term at college he was so impressed by his Animaliologistics professor that he renamed himself according to the binomial nomenclature.

They were characterized by episodes of long lasting chat sessions, which were generally relieved by the cafe owner requesting to shut down the shop. The episodes were of remitting and relapsing in nature, with intermediate lucid intervals in which he remembered to go home and have meals. He also gives history of certain associated symptoms, which are described in de
