The Bloggers Meet – Part 1

I decided. I searched. I found the place. I mingled. I drank the coffee (?!). I left. This is exactly how I would describe Sunday`s Chennai Bloggers Meet ….in 16 words. If you give me more elbowroom…maybe I can spice it up for you. [Whatever I say after this line needs to be read with …

Optimist vs Pessimist

[This scene is enacted in Dublin, an up-market pub in Chennai where I have never set my foot] Optimist: I would say the glass is half full. Pessimist: If you ask me, it is half empty. But who is going to pay for it? Optimist: We could go Dutch…you pay for the half full part, …

Con and Constable

[This post is stupid. Proceed at the cost of being laughed at] Wonder if the ‘con` in both the words – Con & Constable – is intentional.

Whether weather will be good…

Haven’t seen anything as creative in a while. Makes immense logic… Just because Chennai didn’t get its dose of cricket today…all are behaving odd. Even I have decided to make some sense.

The number 111 is sometimes called a “Nelson”, after Admiral Nelson. It is so called because the person who …

God exists

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 tyre …on a Sunday …

And the winner is…

Here is the winning post…re-created for your convenience! A Gentleman`s guide to your wife`s sari OK, I accept I iron her clothes. Who doesn`t? Just because I don`t have the courage to take her head-on and fight for my rights, you can`t call me a coward. I am quite a brave guy. The other day, …

Paris is burning

Paris is burning. In school, they taught us Rome was burning when Nero was playing the fiddle. So, is anybody playing the fiddle in Paris? Besides the French Government …which was last seen playing second fiddle. Is Paris still the fashion capital? Nobody walks the ramp now a days. The last man who walked became …
