Here are two things I came across today. 1) When you rearrange the letters in ‘MOTHER-IN-LAW` you get ‘WOMAN HITLER.` Why am I not surprised? 2) Today (20th May) something amazing is going to happen...something that doesn`t happen every other day. At 8.05 pm today the time and date will be: 2005

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

Heard about this Chennai guy who recently got caught between a concrete wall and a corporation bus? He lost both his left hand and left leg. According to the latest reports...he is all right! Monday post coming soon. :-)

There are people like this. For the world they are the gift to mankind...and deep down inside ...or for that matter beneath a thin layer of brasso, they are green and slimy.

When I was with Indian Express, I didn`t find their office toilets great. They were very average. After two years with IE, I tagged on to my Indian Express Sports Editor Anand Philar and World Billiards Champion Geet Sethi and joined their start-up in Chennai. Since we worked out of

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

I have always wanted to become a World-renown poet. But lack of vocabulary (poets should know words that the common folk don`t understand) and lack of command over grammar (poets need to understand it fully before they can go ahead and break the rules) ensured that I would end up

I have a Nokia 3310. A very basic model when compared to the hi-tech mobiles that I see in the hands of hi-tech people. I am not aware of the features that the latest of mobiles come with, but I think the phone companies should seriously think of incorporating the

Indu Balachandran, a real comedy writer (like me), has come up with an amazing article on dinning out. Please don't miss it for the World. Like me...Indu is also an Economics student. Unlike me, she has won a Gold medal in journalism, worked in an ad agency, bungee-jumped at Bali, white-water-rafted

Ever wondered why your site figured high in Google but way below in Yahoo search or MSN search? I did and would find out that different search engines use different relevancy criteria. In my attempt at comparing and contrasting how different search engines work, I landed on a link which

The two kids you will see in the video are Tristan and Nic Puehse - fraternal twins born on December 8, 1997. They began skating just after their 6th birthday. Their natural athletic ability and toughness, combined with a "no-fear" attitude have made them serious competitors. More about them at

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

Mathematics is the queen of the sciences. - Carl Friedrich Gauss And I pity the King. Blame it on my not-so-good mathematical experience. To sum it up, I just hate mathematics. So much so, when I last changed my job they asked me, "So how much do you expect?" I said: "I

All of a sudden I realized I have been blogging for more than a year now. Guess, it was time for some stock taking. Just when I had given hope, I realized that Go Stats could provide me with the information. For those who do not know how many people

You got to read this - is this funny or what. Apparently, Google was sent this mail by one of the aspiring fly-by-night SEO company. Dear, I visited your website and noticed that you are not listed in most of the major search engines and directories..." Don't believe me? Check

A few days back a friend of mine joked that if Google carries on at the speed it is now, Yahoo! will soon have to replace the exclamation mark with a question this - Yahoo? I wasn`t so sure then...but after I read these three articles I wonder if my

One of the 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

Ok, that was a very desperate attempt at fooling everybody. When I came up with the post on how the newspapers planted April Fool`s Day stories, I had no intention of coming up with my own April fool`s Day prank. But then, somebody left a comment saying "I guess, we can expect

A conversation between Sourav Ganguly and Adam Gilchrist after the last day`s play in the 2nd Test (in Chennai) was washed out. I have to warn you that it is not at all imaginative...and is really stupid. Index: SG: Sourav Ganguly; AG: Adam Gilchrist. SG: We missed a golden chance to equal

When a man makes a woman his is the highest compliment he can pay her. In 95% of the cases it is the last compliment. In the other 5% of cases, the last compliment is when the bags are being packed at the honeymoon location. In most of these cases,

According to reports Osama Bin Laden is in US custody. I would not believe that. Why would the US President capture Osama - his sworn enemy - and not announce his triumph to the World? After all, Bush is leader of the free World and has the good of mankind

If you are a South Indian and reading this, chances are you will not understand because you have never seen a winter. You might as well read a book titled ‘Mr & Mrs Butt` released recently by Sanjay Dutt and his two sisters. If you are a North Indian, you probably

I am enlightened. For now, I know why my parents had only three kids. The last of their child is my younger sister born in 1979. Just came to know, they had bought a black and white television some ten months before she was born. With this bit of informaton safely

I can now reveal the news I have been trying to hide from the World for the last three months. Perhaps, Rekha has given me the go ahead because she knows she will anyway give away the secret herself. One really can`t hide from the World that one is pregnant

Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi are back again for the Olympics and that is good news for India. I would not take all of the credit for patching up Leander and Mahesh. Agreed, I went up to Mahesh the other day and said, "Boss, this is too much yaar." But it

There were times when my wife Rekha called me a Dog. You got to give it to her for being appropriate - she never addressed me as a dog in front of strangers & relatives. It was reserved for occasions when we were alone - especially, when we were in

Crime is ramphant in this World, more so in India which makes its presence felt at the top of the list of the most corrupted countries. That is not to take away the credit of Mexico, which is the most corrupt country in the World.

Rekha and I were part of the Vlogger Tinker Meetup held at Kiruba`s wife`s office on Sunday. The 15 or so video-blogging enthusiasts who had assembled were divided into 3-member teams and asked to come up with a video which could then be uploaded. From what I can see, only

"I Love Sea Food, Specially Porns" ~ Rakhi Sawant +++++++++ "For God's sex, stop making fun of my English." ~ Rakhi Sawant +++++++++ "I went to Dentist to show my Tits." ~ Rakhi Sawant +++++++++ Media: “Aap Kitni Padhi Likhi Ho?” Rakhi Sawant: “Zyaada Nahi.. Bas Inter-Course Kiya Hai…!!" +++++++++ "This year I am standing for Erections" ~ Rakhi Sawant +++++++++ If you will

When I left Yahoo in just seven months, I had sent out a farewell mail to all my Yahoo colleagues. Today, while going through my old mails...I saw this and I have to admit that I was impressed with the farewell mail I had sent out. Thought why not share

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

Ajay Shroff (a friend of mine) and Nanette (a friend of his) have thrown into the cauldron called Internet two ticking time-bombs. You don`t want to be the one that didn`t enjoy the rush for it now: I am surprised these domain names were available for Ajay. It is

I think I am real cool Casanova. I have at least 5-6 pretty girls calling me every week. Shhhh....Rekha doesn`t know. This will be our little secret. These girls are pretty and are gifted with sweet, seductive voice. Actually, let me be open with you. I don`t know if these girls

They say today`s life is computerized. Everything has been influenced by computers. I say "definitely no!" For example, today morning I could not find my new pair of socks. If our lives were really influenced by computers...shouldn`t I be capable of pressing Control+F and find my new pair of socks? Or

It is a very fine art. You learn with age. Or should I say you realize after some time. Back in Madurai, we have no tradition of gifting. Of course, we do part with a piece of our earnings...just that we do not go to Archies or a Lifestyle or a

Yesterday I took my grandmother to a hospital nearby. She had been coughing the whole night and I thought if I could fix her a meeting with the 65-year-old general physician nearby, she would be happy. My grandma had a ball of a time. The doctor held her hand (he said

It isn`t without reason that Railways has a separate budget. No, it isn`t because Mamta Banerjee wanted to have her own purse. It is because Railways is an integral part of the Indian psyche, not to mention the amount of money spent on its daily up keep and the number

Some say that Adam got bored and asked God to give him a companion. Some say, God wanted Adam to sacrifice his one leg and one hand at the altar, if he wanted a companion. And when Adam requested God to give him somebody for whom he will only have
