Hails to Marxist ideas
St. Peter: "The ideas you preach have brought misery to billions. I send you to the deepest pits of Hell!"After a few months Satan calls God:Satan: "God, please remove Marx from my realm as soon as possible."God: "Why would I do that? He is a sinner, his fate is to burn in Hell."Satan: "He is creating great turmoil! First he made all the imps pioneers, then he started to unite the devils into labor unions, and now he's preparing a revolution!"God agrees to take Marx in Heaven so that all Hell does not break loose. After a few months Satan calls God again:Satan: "Hey, God, how's it going?"God: "First of all, comrade Satan, you are to address me properly as "comrade God". Second, I do not have time since Marx has urgently called me to a party session, and third, there is no God."
After some days, Lucifer, caretaker of the hell met with Angel, who take care of Heaven. Yes, they meet sometimes in the corridors of heavenly worlds! Today Lucifer was gloomy. When Angel asked about his sadness, Lucifer replied. "There is a new guy in hell named Karl Marx. He created all kinds of trouble in Hell. Now employee demons are striking and day-to-day work is not functioning in hell. Now there is a union for demons!" To this angel replied "Why don't you consider sending him to Heaven for sometime? May be I can make him change his ways." Lucifer agreed to this but warned Angel that Marx is a difficult guy to convince. Max went to the heaven. After some days Lucifer met Angel in the corridor.Lucifer: "How is it with Karl Marx? Is there any trouble in Heaven?" Angel: "Trouble? There is no trouble! He is absolutely fine in Heaven! Keep him there itself" Replied Angel with a cheerful face. Lucifer got worried. He can't keep Marx for long in the Heaven because God desn't know about this transfer.Lucifer: "But..we can't keep him there. What will god say if he comes to know about this!"Angel: "God? Isn't that a bourgeoisie concept, Comrade?!"
Marx as a student
In University, Karl Marx's Political Economics professor noted that every day, the young man would get up halfway through class and walk out, which caused a good deal of disruption. The professor quickly grew tired of the daily distraction, and so one day, as Marx stood up and prepared to leave, the professor stopped lecturing and turned to him."I am curious, Mr. Marx, what it is about my teaching you find so intolerable that you cannot sit through more than half of any given lecture."Karl looked surprised for a moment, but quickly understood what the problem was, and said, "Oh, no, sir, it's nothing like that. See, I have a class on "Proletariat ideology" that starts in five minutes, and I'll be dropped from the course if I'm late."The professor was confused. "You mean to tell me that the University registered you for two courses during the same time?""Yes, sir," Marx responded. "So it's nothing personal. Just a class conflict."
One day Karl Marx dies and God sends him to hell. But this doesn’t stop Karl Marx. Right away, he starts to stir up people in hell:“Look comrades! We’re here burning and suffering, while others enjoy their after-life in heaven. This no divine justice, this is madness!” And the people in hell start to rise up and revolt.The angels immediately go to God’s chamber:“God! Marx is causing unrest in hell. People rose up and they want equal rights!”God replies; “Then put him heaven so he shuts his fricking mouth!”So they put him in heaven, but this doesn’t stop Marx either. He then starts to revolt people in heaven: “Look, while we live here in abundance, our comrades in hell are suffering, burning, let's not allow this!". Soon after, chaos starts.The angels immediately go to God’s chamber to warn him: “God, Marx is causing unrest in heaven right now! People want everyone to live in heaven!”God ordains angrily: “Bring me this Marx guy! I shall talk to him in person!”Angels go and bring Marx to God’s chamber. The door closes. An hour passes, two hours pass, but Marx and God are still in the chamber. Angels wonder what is happening. Hours later, the door opens. Marx leaves the room with silence and heads outside. The angels come in, prying, and ask: “God, what happened?”. God replies: “Sshh! No God, I’m your comrade!”

It's the "Festival of Lights" today,It's again the day of Diwali,It's time to dress up folks,It's time to adorn the thali.It's the occasion to throng the temples,Pray to the Gods and give them offerings,It's an opportunity to entreat the deities,To bless us all and rid us of sufferings.It's the day to light the diyas,Ignite the rockets and burst crackers,But it's also the time to be safe,From the fireworks and all the sparklers.It's the season to pay a visit,To all our friends and relations,To hand them over sweets and presents,Diwali is our splendid chance.But while you spend a time of joy,Don't think it's merriment all the way,Out there wait many of those,For whom it's no time to be gay.Denied of laughter and smiles for days,They know not what it is to enjoy,Can you not share something you have,Can you not bring them a little joy?When you can make someone else smileWhen you can be someone's allyThat's when you can yourself be gladThat's when you'll have a HAPPY DIWALI!©Lakshmi Sundareswaran

I have an invisible friendWho guides me through dark and pain.She always tells me not to give upAs she believes my efforts will never go in vain.When the paths are not clearAnd I am surrounded by fear,She holds my trembling hands and says,"Oh dear, don't you worry, good days are near!"So one day I finally asked her,"How can be you so optimistic about everything?"Smiling at my naive face she said,"Just like after gloomy night comes bright day,Just like after every storm comes the calm,Through ups and downs, life always goes on."She made me believe in miracles,Gave strength to my wings.No matters how impossible they may seem,I can now fly high and achieve my dream.She is the reason I always smile.I never give up, I never blameBecause I have an invisible friend,And Hope is her name!©Lakshmi Sundareswaran
A friend is someone who will always be there.A friend is someone who will always careWhen you're feeling happy or sad,Sometimes even when you're mad.A friend will lend a shoulder or loan their ear,Because to a friend, you are very dear.A friend will be there in all your days.A friend is someone who doesn't stray.In laughs and tears,A friend shares in your life throughout the years.When things don't seem like they're going right,A friend will be there to reassure in the darkest night.When you feel like you're falling apart,A friend will come to you and help heal your heart.A friend is someone who will lend a handWhile you lie in confusion or just don't understand.A friend shows you the way right from the start.A friend is someone from whom you never want to part.So, thank you for all that you do.It's a blessing to have a friend like you.©Lakshmi Sundareswaran
