Male-Bonding

Requested By Kumar @ 02:51 pm | Nov 29th 2004 I need your blogs on Male-Male relationship and feelings. Thanx. Sorry guys. Though I have nothing against gays, this post is not about them. This is about ‘male bonding`, which has been dying a natural death. And this post meanders like Narmada…that is…its on no …

Tough decision

You could be an Ambani, but there are going to be times when you are at the crossroads wondering…what shall I have now…tea or coffee? Of course, the Ambanis have bigger issues to sort out but my point is…however powerful you are…there are some tough decisions that have to be taken. Take me for example: …

Transportation Costs

Once you are married, your transportation costs are bound to increase. When a bachelor, you would have come home after work and just stayed put. But a wife at home ensures that you go visit your friends and better your network. She might not agree, but she also likes the times when you are away. …

Rekha’s wish-list

Here are some things Rekha wants me to keep in mind this week-end i.e., when she is not here. I wonder if her absence is actually worth the fun. The list she handed over to me is being re-created verbatim – 1) Pick up the milk from the door, boil it and after it gets …

Watch out for dinner-time

If it is dinner time and you are married, be careful. I repeat, Be Careful. Most men are vulnerable when it is dark. And the women know that. Some old hag who knew little about the mind of a woman had once said: “The way to a man heart, is through his stomach.” How true, …

Cleanliness, my foot!

There used to be a time in my life when I was obsessed with cleanliness. Now, I leave it to Rekha. Most bachelors have clean habits. They brush their teeth once a week, take bath on Sundays, and wear washed clothes for parties and what not. But once they marry, cleanliness goes for a toss. …

When I turned poet!

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 having a blog. Here is …

Check-mate over the phone

I was innocent. For I thought she loved me. I was obviously (and naturally) thinking like a man. Rekha used to call me at least four to five times during office hours. If I include calls made to remind me to pay the phone bill, drop the Credit card cheque, or book train tickets…it would …

Diwali was a blast

Diwali was a blast. Pun very seriously intended. It was raining yet my brother-in-law and I went to buy crackers. The initial child-like enthusiasm died once we saw the crowd. It was the day before Diwali and everybody was queuing up in front of the veddi kaddai (that`s how we call a shop that sells …

The art of making good tea

Tea is perhaps the easiest thing to make. Easier still, if you are as talented as I am. I embarked on this adventure after reading this article on how to lead a happy married life. I would not say it was a happy ending…but yes, in the end, I had made tea. I got up, …

When Bush comes to show

George Bush has retained the White House. Shucks, I had gotten bored of the Bush jokes on the net and was expecting Kerry to win, so that we would have a fresh set of laughing matter. Looks like I have to contend with Bush jokes for another four years. Don`t know why US has re-elected …

Bush vs Musharraf

Here is a yahoo chat conversation between US President George Bush and Pakistan CEO Pervez Musharraf. These guys are generally invisible; so don`t wait for them to come online. You can send off-line messages, if you are interested. Bush: Hey Pervez, where is Osama? Pervez: Search me! 😛 Bush: Man, you refuse to hand him …
