MODERN SRADDHA

"Take this tanner and finish in minutes the rituals 
I've to catch the Grand Trunk Express by twelve sharp 
No matter you bypass many, but do the only actuals 
Lest my grandpa bombards me with his tongue sharp."

"Tell me then gotra and name, if you are in hurry 
I'll release you right now from, grandpa's worry."

"Be quick, 2gotra is 3Bharadwaja and name 4Srihari 
Should you finish in seconds, double'll be thy fee."

Mumbling a few chants amid 5tarpana, the pandit told
May Srihari above be at peace and son here hale and bold"

"What! What!! I am Srihari, the son of late Murahari 
Whom did you do then sraddha - to Srihari or Murahari?"

"why doubt! sraddha is done to the name of Srihari,
You only told me when asked, Bharadwaja and Srihari."

"What a blunder panditji, mistaking son for the father
You did sraddha to living son instead of dead father"

"O God! who could then expiate this 6mahapapa 
Neither can Ganges purge, nor will it please grandpa."
