Hiatus.. Or What

May 15, 2009

Dear all,

 

It has been a long time since I have made a post online. I will not blame my job. I have a lot of time & on a daily basis come across a lot of interesting people & things. I juast have not had the inspiration to write. I am sure if I stated pasting my Gtalk conversations, it could make for a fun post.

 

The last post probably originated form a cybercafé in Hyderabad. That would have been in July 2008. Since then life has come a long way.

 

I have lived in two different states after that TN & Gujarat (Briefly). Nowadays, I m kicking dust around in Vidarbha & Chattisgarh.

 

I promise to write about something interesting soon..

 

thnks

OOPS We did it again..

April 5, 2008

Britney is Bald.. So is Sehwag.. They both have had one off big hits..

Sachin is a mighty lucky bastard.. Now the whole of India would say “We lost because Sachin was not in the team”.. (Zaroor ghoos deke Injury bolta hoga.. phir match fix karke ferrari leta hoga)

( Also I recently heard that Aishwarya Rai lives (Used to Live) in the same building as Sachin.. and that Ash’s driver told someone that Sachin’s wife is having an affair with his Driver.. WTF.. Kya kya bolte hain log..)

So, yes.. unfortunately getting back to cricket.

I had stopped following Cricket.. stopped as though I was given a restraining order from it.

And I had done because of this very shameless spineless behavior our Babies in Blue Show..

Bloody morons.. I tell you.. Just fucking play the game.. Stop doing trapeze shows..

Play like it means something to you..

Stewie for Governor!!

RACE – To the exit..

March 24, 2008

There are movies with the right amount of twists & Turns.. and then there are movies which have one FATEFUL twist in the plot

AND THEN..

There are movies like ‘RACE’ which are like the mazes at amusement park.

The movie seemed like a Great but Unsuccessful attempt at a big banner murder mystery thriller.. The first 30 mins are ok.. even good.. good production qualities and some great shots.

But after 30 mins, it’s all downhill.. and by the end it started reminding me of Saas-Bahu ‘K’ Serials where people keep coming back from the dead.. and eveyone seems to be having a relationship with everyone else..

Another question which comes to my mind is.. What the hell was that Reddy chick doin in the movie.. I mean Anil Kapoor himself seemed like excess baggage and add to that the reddy chick (I am sorry I don’t know her first name.. too much confusion.. too many sisters)

Which police department would employ such worthless buffoons.. What the hell.. Why did south africa agree to such buffoonery at their expense..

All in all this movie was an utter waste of money and time.. The last time I felt this cheated was when I went for ‘No Smoking’.. but at least that movie had some artistry.

This movie seemed like an ad for Provogue and BMW. (Both of which are very good)

and to top it all.. all this happened for 200 million (what currency is not clear).. I mean a website is worth more.. even a blog ( Hint Hint)..

Stewie for Governor.. and rebirth of Censorship for quality

Oru Cup Chaaya…

October 28, 2007

late may 2007..

A small room in Ruby Tourist Home with an attached bath and red curtains in Vallanjambalam ( The temple at the turn).. also a neighbourhood in ernakulam.

The small room had a window which looked out into a small courtyard. A courtyard which was covered with a thick sheet of Heat Absorbing, Wind stopping, Greenhousing Asbestos… and just so that people do not forget… IT IS LATE MAY.. AND IT IS KERALA…

It has been a month and a half of roaming.. incessant roaming.. sometimes pointless.. sometimes fruitful.. but mostly in the sun doing up and down shop stairs asking the same questions replete with misunderstood statements made in a salad of languages… Communication is not difficult.. it is conversation that stumps me.

I have met 40 something Dark, Hairy, Big men called lo and behold “BABY JOSEPH”.. yes.. I kid you not..

I have felt the pleasant feeling of meeting a fellow tamilian.. or seeing a quick familiar gesture on hearing I am with the horlicks company..

There is great comfort in routine.. No ugly turns.. No guesswork.. you know exactly what tomorrow holds in store.. (By store I wish to intend a PUN.. one that I will be going to a lotta stores.. and two is what it means)

So getting back to Late May 2007..

The day would begin nice and early with a sweaty neck.. which used to wake me up everyday.. which pissed me off so much.. the irritating summer sweat in the neck.. eeewww… followed with a warm shower at 7 am.. warm water at 7 friggin am and there is no concept of hot water for bating (I will get to hot water at a later post) in kerala..at least in may.. The water was hot on it’s own.

715 and I was out.. walking to the nearby hotel.. go ahead and order myself an APPAM or a DOSHA.. topped with copious amounts of sambar and chutney..In this place like many of the small hotels.. there is no concept of single serving sambar or chutney.. if you want you could bathe your dosa in sambar

It was really difficult to choose between the DOSHA or APPAM.. even though the similarity is uncanny with the sambar..but still..

I would occasionally Indulge in a cup of KADALA (The aftertaste will linger for a while.. better be prepared for that) with the appam.. or better still order PAROTTA..but only sometimes.. Kadala is a spicy dish made with Kale Chane.. Little too spicy to be had everyday.. But a day saver when you just want to wake up..Parotta is something which is a crispy flaky parantha in the morning.. when it is made.. In the afternoon when it is just heated and served.. it also acts like a stepney in case you have a flat…

The breakfast set the foundation for another day in kerala for me..

But it was never quite a complete experience… without ORU CUP CHAYA.. or one cup tea.. the beauty of weak kerala tea after a heavy spicy breakfast followed with a swift smoke on the way to the bus stop IS an experience in itself..

Man I miss the breakfast at (the hotel I never saw the name of but went to everyday)

Stewie for Governor!!! and Parotta for President..
