Overheard junjun singing 'californication....' and i blanched coz it just did not sound right coming from him.

Post this i have been ODing on country music which i knew wouldnt have anything even mildly offensive.

Now i hear arjun sing " ....... pl dont take my man"

Cannot get rid of the frying-pan-into-the-fire feeling.

My new friend :p

Since we see each other everyday, the one-handed man at the traffic signal selling car cleaning cloth and i have become acquaintances.

Today though, i didnt need to stop because i got an unbelievably green light but i saw him standing at the side. He saw me too and and as i drove by, he actually raised his hand to his chest in greeting!!

I couldnt wait to tell maddy about my new 'friend'. Maddy now says he is going to pay all the vendors and beggars on the road to salute me since it seems to make me so happy.

Actually i was kinda really upbeat....this is the closest i have come to feeling like some kind of mafia don :p

Time to go back to the real world.

Lunch making calleth.

:) :)

I love my country

I went upstairs on the 15th to find so many people had turned up for the flag hoisting held by the apartment. We were a motley crowd and we were all there because we were Indians and proud of it.

I then went down to the little shop next door and found a huge crowd in the basti next to our apartment building....and as i watched, another flag unfurled to thunderous applause.

I think the chinese can go suck eggs.

Some deep stuff

A traffic jam is the result of two or three people refusing to believe that god has given them as much intelligence as anybody else!!

Moms beware....

...of dads who suddenly offer to supervise sonny boy's homework....

Before you know it, suddenly homework is all done and two pairs of suspiciously innocent eyes wait for your approval as you scan the homework.

Ofcourse, you need only one - even partially functioning eye to see that doting dad has done a little more than just 'supervising'.

b-a-t and c-a-t and f-a-t are looking a little too good to be true.

An all knowing, raised eyebrow look to the dad.

Dad sends puppy dog imploring look back to me.

I look at Jun and suddenly father and son look too much like father and son.

awww what the heck....and we left it to the teacher to handle the situation.

Parental diplomacy. Hear hear!
