This was snapped while filling up the car before we climbed up the hill. Wonder why it says 'you pay more in the hills'. Check out the tea's name - Nonsuch. When I asked the tea shop owner he said: "Thats because there is 'no other such' tea in the World." Thats

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

The French, connoisseurs of art that they are, are planning on jamming mobile signals at entertainment joints where people come to see theatre, movies or for that matter hear orchestra. Pretty good move by a country, where having beer at work is fine with everybody. Now, there would be no disturbance

In early November 2007, I had traveled in an Air Deccan flight from Chennai to Delhi. As always happens with me (and compulsively so!) I wrote a funny piece of my experiences on the flight - and my fantasies with Air Deccan Air Hostess Poornima and Kavita - titled My

A signature always reveals a man's character - and sometimes even his name. - Evan Esar (1899 - 1995) Rekha and I had a fight last evening. Nothing much happened. Just that now I have a deep gash on my left calf muscle and she has three cuts on her right fore-arm.

I know it sounds like a Hindi movie actress picked up by a rouge for a rape scene. But this article is about my In-Laws Do you know why they are called In-laws? Coz they think they are THE Law! I got to tell you this...those of you who are married are

I was lucky enough to visit my page when the counter showed 1,11,111. Below given is a screenshot. But beware...the number 111 is supposed to be a bad omen. And doesn`t 111111 mean double the trouble? The number 111 is sometimes called a "Nelson", after Admiral Nelson. It is so called

I have finally managed to get a story of mine on Rediff. It is on how to shop smart...esp with your wife around. Thanks to the Editor it sounds a lot better now! Read More

The year was 2003 A.D. The characters were the Hero (let us call him Rahul, since all heros have that name), the Heroine (let us call her Priya, since all heroines ..whatever blah) and the Villain (let us call him...well...Jammy). Those were the innocent days. Days when you didn`t talk dirty

With nothing else to write on, I have chosen a less funny item - the bag that I take to office everyday. No, I am not going to brag about my laptop bag. Simply because, what I take to office is not a lap top bag. It is a simple "Trunk &

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

Bijoy Bharathan of 'The Asian Age' has written a feature on online Status Messages and what they are all about. Some time back he had called me to get my take on Status Messages which we use without a second thought. Here is the portion where my name figures:

Have you realized that when you shave you don`t save? When you shave you spend so much of your money on the costly twin blades that there is no chance of you saving. And if you decide to save...shaving becomes a impossibility because the local barber charges anywhere between Rs

In the last 14 months, my baby daughter has taught me many lessons and I have tried to capture them in this blog post. If you have a baby of your own and think I have missed out a good lesson, please let us all know. Chances are I slept

One of the Ouchmytoe.com readers mailed this short piece and asked me to upload it on the blog. Not willing to disappoint her, here goes - A married man left from work early one Friday afternoon. Instead of going home, however, he squandered the weekend (and his salary) partying with the

An air hostess who was willing to give me poison to test my love for her, a 90-year-old lady traveling in an airplane for the first time and a once in a lifetime opportunity - where I could have arrested the notorious Don Dawood Ibrahim single-handedly ....excited things happened when

Yesterday, I had a mail in my Gmail inbox which had an interesting subject: "Jammy, you stole my sleep". My immediate reaction was, "Has the mail come from a girl or a boy?" I checked...and it had come from Viji - in all probability a south Indian (pretty!) girl.

When I first visited his blog (or is it a she?) I read the blog title as ‘Suicide and other pancreas.` On reading it a second time, I realized it was ‘Suicide and other panaceas`. Smokin Joe, as he likes to call himself comes up with simple cartoons, which even a

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,

There was a time when an application meant a form you filled and submitted in a bank, post office or any other office just few hours before the deadline. Not anymore....now applications mean something else. We are talking of Smartphone apps. Here are a few wierd ideas for smartphone applications.

According to a bit of statistic yet to be believed by somebody other than me, for every happy father, there are three unhappy men yearning to be fathers. Most of these I-want-to-be-a-father men are victims of contraceptives. All kinds of contraceptives... A friend of mine is victim of oral contraceptives. Every

US President George Bush`s administration has spent more than $88 million on public relations in 2004. A major part of this money is spent on columnists who write against him - by buying their integrity with loads of cash (sometimes more than $ 20,000). This column has been written in

Even if you had been in Timbuktu (in Mali) for the last three months, you would have known about the contest surrounding the Seven Wonders of the World. And you can`t just blame Timbuktu`s presence in the probables list...the contest was all over the town, World & television. My company

Therefore, lipstick sales tend to increase during times of economic uncertainty or a recession. This term was coined by Leonard Lauder (chairman of

Apparently, traveling makes one intelligent and broad-minded. Am not so sure, coz I traveled the whole of last weekend and my spectacles fits me just fine. From puking eight times between 12 midnight and 6.30 a.m. to traveling to Madurai in a 3rd AC with loud pack of Gujaratis, to picking

Sometimes life can be really cruel to you. It hurts more when you have been trying to be nice. Yesterday, it was raining when I left home to reach office in time. I have been using Rekha`s TVS Scooty ever since we came back after marriage. And mind you, she still

Came across this interesting link and thought I might as well share it with you. http://uncyclopedia.org - A satire site, which is patterned on the lines of Wikipedia.com. Especially liked their piece on Captain Obvious. And here is something I came across in the Indian Association for the Study of Population`s website

I often think of the attraction of smoking, that it simplifies the world into three parts. There’s you, there’s the cigarette, and everything else is the ashtray.

Rekha`s family has decided to strip me on the day of the marriage. Looks like the marriage will be sanctified in a temple. But this is only the good part. The bad part is, I can only wear a dhoti during the marriage. That leaves out my fat-laden, scar-ridden, breast-hanging torso

Today is my last day here in Sify. When was the last time I quit a job? Been a long while...yet as far as I remember, I have never quit a job formally. This is probably the first time. When I was working as a Features Sub-Editor with The Perth Courier,

Had it not been for the rain yesterday, I would have gone unwashed...unabashed. Luckily, just as I was leaving for my office, heavens opened up and gave me a shower that I desperately needed. I would not blame Chennai for me not taking bath. Neither would I blame its iron-fisted ruler

I know a few of you will be angry with me for being so rude. But having been married, I guess it is time for me to understand that there is no such thing called love between husband and wife. If somebody told me that Shah Jahan built Taj Mahal for
