Putu's Literary Saga with Happy Ending

Dedicated to Tiger of Bengal, Pride of Nation, Nephew of Putu.

Putu writing classic book,
Gentle reader, come take look
Putu’s magic pen on thaba
Putu will be Rushdie’s baba

Putu finish classic novel
Agent publisher all grovel
Banging door of Putu’s house
Running like the three blind mouse

Putu is craze song and dance
Has mosto foreign advance
Putu is sure shot for Booker
All say Putu sexy looker

All reviewer, one by one
Saying Putu son of gun
Mixing Dan Brown mass appeal
With G. Marquez magic real

NDTV girl with paunch
Asking quote at Putu launch,
Asking Putu, tell the nation
What is Putu’s inspiration?

Putu says, dear girl, as such
None is fix but ilish maach
Sometimes little mangsho bhaat
Quicking beat of Putu’s heart

That is all Putu is needing
Thank you for coming to reading.
NDTV lady smile
Charmed is all by Putu style

Vikram, Zadie, VS, Hari
All sitting in Putu’s bari
Putu curling lengthy whisker
Drinking Pepsi with Talisker

All say Putu what is next?
What will be next epic text?
Putu saying, fiddlesticks
No more verbal gymnastics

Mira Nair came on phone
Would not leave Putu alone
Book shook writing jolly good
But now time for Bollywood

Putu book will now be movie
All will be disco and groovy
Besides writer Putu’ll be
Idol, Bombay matinee

With Putu as leading star
Music mix by Bappi da
With ShahRukh as villain plumber
Yana Gupta item number

So when you see Putu Cat
Become great aristocrat
Wearing coat with skin of dog,
Remember this Putu blog.

Zig jealous, Zig forlorn,
Zig wondering why he born.
Fame passed without knocking
About Zig blog no one is talking.

Bloody Putu cat literati
Going to all the Page Three party.
All are coming to see damn cat,
Scratching ear and giving pat.

Damn billi is media hogging,
Zig thinking, damn this blogging.
Putu discussing publishing terms
Zig going garden to eat worms.

just one headline, just one story
in the end theyll all be true
and go crawling back to you

Putu quite a cat, i see
Literally angst-ing Zigzackly
But what I love about this jaunt,
Is Putu's classic serif font.

Putu you extrodinaire
What charm, what classy flair
Sometime robin wants to write
But success not coming in sight

Prose poetry become all clutzy
No media frenzy, no papparazzi
Zig don't fuss up a storm
Late bird Robin get no worm

Putu write bad or well
only time will tell
But No 1 symptom of Lit. Star
is already started media War.
Notice finely tuned hype machine
on "Indianwriting" too is seen.
Putu will take part in IWE spats
talk about tastes of vernie rats
Respond with patient, suffering look
when asked " Where is !@#$% book?"

Putu truly genius is
Putu’s readers bask in bliss
Once the race was prefixed “rat-“
Now it’s run by Putu the Cat

This was hysterical! (BTW, it rings faintly of the whole "To the jongol I am went, on shooting tiger I am bent... did putu write that too? And does putu eat puti maach?)

yet another reason for the world to start learning bangla. For putu's further tales i, at least, will be hangla. Will putu be the next kylie? You may say eo ki shombhob? I'd say "highly". Putu come to london (we'll all be amused)... And teach the natives how the language should be used.

This was rather splendid. But I must admit Zigzackly's comment, "Zig jealous..," was quite great too.

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a **Dog Coats** site/. It pretty much covers the sale of custom made dog coats.

Hey, you have a great blog here!

I have a small dog coats site. It pretty much covers ##Custom Dog Coats## related stuff.

Tired of those knit sweaters, the ones that stretch out and have legs that your dog hates? Us too! So we came up with a coat that fits comfortably and works well! You and your dog will love these coats! We know, because we have been dog breeders for 23 years and know what dogs like.

All "Designer DoggieWear!" coats are handmade by ourselves in the United States. This assures the finest of quality and workmanship.

Come and check it out if you get time.

Long-long smiling Putu bring,
words all sounding ding-dong-ding,
merry heart skip ping-pong-ping
Long may live our Putu king.
