Enough room for mistakes…

A mistake here and a mistake there…

Open the door

Another mistake awaits

Blunder, inaccuracy, defaults are the other words, they say…


“Oh my god! The world is a mistake”

Yet the General says,

“No room for mistakes”

Then how should ‘miss perfect’ learn from other mistakes?


Name a person, I say

Who hasn’t added more mistakes everyday?

And I shall bless thy with the past life mystery…


Fools and Moron are those

Who say, “Na! me not made for mistakes”


Dear sir, hear me once and for all…

Very nook and corner of my room

Has a mistake… and

I arnt scared of error, the synonym dictionary says

I only wait for the time

When I can buy a bigger room and fill it with more mistakes



Four walls

Knock knock…is that where I am

Four walls around me

Define the way

I ought to be

The tears in my eyes

The freedom flies by

The books I want to read

Are empty…

Written somewhere

Is what the four walls want me to be

Don’t ask me why I live in the four walls

I have no option

The phone bells rings

And my mind refuses to ink

The call signifies the walls

But I want to fly

Will the walls understands

The heart that fly

Paves ways to nothing at all

The need to sing

Is now dead


Happy Chocolate Day


The shivering lip crave for the heavenly delight

The dark lord making love to the creamy white

The sweet-sour strawberries, for the heart content

What else would I want for this festive night


Treat not only for the eyes,

But all six senses sing alike

The rich coco treat

Decorated in front of me…


A piece of rich chocolate cake or

The creamy dark moose

Death by chocolate

Is all I was hoping for…


But nothing to beat the chocolate avalanche

Chocolate fudge, biscotti, eclair, cake

All in one


The heart that wants

Nothing more than chocolate

The ardent lover and follower

Bows to the darkest


The bitter coco beans

Makes the heart sink

The warmth that spreads

Is a feeling to cherish…

From today, DNA does away with the edit page

Aditya Sinha, Editor-in-Chief


For years, many of you have felt that the newspaper edit page has long outlived its usefulness. It’s boring, very few read it, and it’s a chore to fill. It’s more punditry than expert comment. It’s become a single-page editorial ghetto; and that makes little sense in this TV/mobile/web age where you’re looking for more news validation and analysis.
Thus, DNA has decided to do away with its edit page.
This does not mean DNA will shun analysis: after all, it’s part of our title. Instead, DNA will give you more comment, spread across the paper. For instance, today we have articles by experts on Mumbai, on corruption and on the China-US presidential meeting. Each will appear on a different news page. Otherwise, they’d appear on three consecutive edit pages. DNA will give you more comment in the days to come; you’ve already seen it in the Money section, and you will even see it on the Sport pages. And it will all be interesting.
DNA is doing away with the “leaders”, the 400-word unsigned editorials. Instead, as and when a news event warrants a stand by DNA, it will appear on page 1.
The letters to the editor remain. They remain an important interactive forum and will now appear on page 2.
DNA believes the newspaper is a work in progress. Unless it evolves, it will become irrelevant. We are confident you will support our efforts at modernising journalism and staying ahead of the times.
