It was the 31st of Dec 2005 - last day of the year. After celebrating five dawn-of-new-years (four during courtship and one after marriage) inside homes...we finally ventured out yesterday. I agree, it was fun. Dawn-of-the-new-year are occasions for people to do something special. Or a few like Rekha and I,

Radio City interviewed me today and will be broadcasting it tomorrow (Jan 5th) between 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.. if you are interested...and you better be interested...tune into Radio City at 91.1 and let me know if I was audible. Nandhini, let me tell you...speaking for the radio is a

August 6 can't be forgotten. It was on this day that US of A gave birth to organized terrorism (doesn`t terrorism actually mean creating terror?) by dropping an atom bomb called ‘Little Boy` on Hiroshima. History tells us that they dropped another on August 9, and that too after knowing

Other equally important incidents that have happened on April 26th 2002 - 19-year-old Robert Steinhäuser shoots and kills 17 people at his school in Erfurt, Germany. 1994 - A China Airlines Airbus A-300-600R crashes at Nagoya Airport, Japan killing 264. 1986 - In Ukraine, a nuclear reactor at the Chornobyl (Chernobyl) nuclear plant

I didn`t realize but I have been quoted in this news item on Blog Bans, without my knowledge. One of the many prizes that I have to recieve for being a celebrity blogger ;-) Rekha and I are turning out to be a flashy couple, what with appearing in the newspapers at

Way back in 1963 when India was reeling under the pressures of the 1962 Indo-China war, and the scammed Defence Minister VK Krishna Menon was cooling his heels God knows where (perhaps in God own Country), a 16 year old village girl was falling in love. Selvi was in love

Ever lived in a hostel? If not, you would better stop reading coz you are not going to understand one bit. Today morning when I walked into my balcony, I saw my towel fall from the line where I had left it to dry. It was dry all right. But

Suicide bombing hadn’t yet become a career option – the middle classes still wanted their children to become an Engineer, a Doctor or a Collector. I decided to become a Collector, because I didn’t like what the only Engineer & Doctor I knew did for a living – the former

They say God is love. And I believe I am God...so where is my love? Working in Cognizant Technologies Solution, Navallur, Chennai office*? For those who think there is no God, try getting an electrician to set right your blown fuse, or try getting a puncture-wala to set right your flat

Today is my birthday - apologies...didn`t give you advance notice. But then, you weren`t going to dispatch a gift to my address. Or were you planning to? Last year Rekha had gifted me a pair of beer mugs. Wonder what it will be this time. Tonight, Rekha and I are going

Even as I write this, I am not able to find the right keys. Spelllling mishtakes may please be ignored, as I am drunkkk. My present problem with words could be blamed on the Russians. After all, weren`t they the ones to invent (or is it discover?) Vodka. BTW, the brand is

I have always believed that every photograph has a story to tell - something so compelling that one doesn`t really want to share it. Perhaps that is why it took me 26 years to tell you this story. The three children caught in this 26-year old photograph are Jamshed V

Potti, even before you start reading, remember that a tribute from me does not take you places. Atleast not yet. Firstly, sorry for pronouncing your name for the major part of our association as if it were `Potty.` Realised it myself, and corrected it...after debating for 3-4 months if at

--------I didn't write this----------- A businessman boarded a plane to find, sitting next to him, an elegant woman wearing the largest, most stunning diamond ring he had ever seen. He asked her about it. "This is the Klopman diamond," she said. "It is beautiful, but there is a terrible curse that goes with

I know this post is a little late. Scott Adams has been telling people how to survive at their jobs via Dilbert for the last 20 years. I don`t even have 20 years of work experience, leave alone insights that he delivers every day via 2000+ newspapers all over the

That`s when I decided to speak to him. It is always better for a man to talk to a man and solve issues. Men end up looking like fools only when they attempt to talk and resolve issues with a lady. Don't understand a thing? Don't get the context? Well...you are

Some animals have unique features. Some don`t. A giraffe for example can clean its ears with its twenty-inch long tongue. Give that tongue to a man and he would be cleaning the ears of the lady sitting next to him. Porcupines have long, sharp needles. Doctors also have long sharp needles.

Always wanted to work for Google...but didn't know how to make it to an interview with the Google guys? Well, that still remains a mystery. One thing that is clear as of now is...what does one wear to a an interview with Google. Here is what -

(A not so serious analysis) 1) World is now divided into two types of people - those that were affected, and those that weren`t. 2) Those who were not affected are of two categories - those that actually helped, and those that got goose pimples and kept watching the TV. 3) Kids will

You have always been told the wrong mythological stories…..because that’s what the elders wanted you to hear….so that you grew up with values and conscience. The truth is far more life like…far more real. Check out four mythological stories – find out why Ganesha has an elephant head, Why Shiva has

If you remember, sometime back I had said that I was aiming for a Shah Rukh Khan like six-pack. Well, the girl colleague for whom I was working out quit her job a month back and got married last week. I came to know of her marriage after a fortnight

Congratulations guys! For those who do not know, the Sify rowing team has come up trumps at the recently concluded annual Corporates Rowing Championship, conducted under the aegis of Madras Boat Club.

What is the issue all about? We expect our Government to do a lot of things - But not Ban Blogs. That too Because a Bunch of terrorists exchanged messages on some God forsaken private Blog. We had two opposing reasons to Believe that the Government would never resort to something like

This is part of my series where I look at an image and come up with a story. Here are my two earlier, similar attempts - On why I hate chicken and Fallen Angels You probably don`t know but I was once a very famous jockey. Serious. OK fine...if you don`t

I have spent a significant portion of my growing years in North India - Jamshedpur, Delhi, and Jalandhar to be precise. Just that this time around, I am not under the shadows of my parents. Believe me...life is really different and difficult when your parents are not around to protect

Have you ever had a boss who works out of another city? Or have you interacted with a client living across seven seas? If yes, chances are you have attended conference calls. Don`t ask me why they are also known as con-calls.... In my earlier job (with so many bloggers asked to

This happened today morning. Rekha and I got up at 6 a.m. Getting up together is a relatively new habit. There used to be a time when Rekha would get up at 5.30 a.m., take bath, pray and with water dripping from her tied-in-a-turban-on-top-of-her-head hair, she would touch my lotus

My parents have always told me, never believe the feedback that you get on your face. For once, they were correct. The positive comments on my writing style, humor and attitude, left by scheming visitors kept me me in the dark, false World where I was made to believe that I

Giving bath to a baby isn`t as easy as it is made out to be. More so, when two pair of watchful eyes are prying over your shoulder. Yesterday, Rekha and I ran into each other at home and the final verdict was that I wasn`t contributing much to our
