My trip to Hyderabad

My company thinks I qualify for AC 2 tier, if I travel on work. So, when I was asked to travel to Hyderabad, I booked my ticket in the same class. Quite an experience. Even before I proceed any further, let me tell you that I have never ever traveled higher than 2nd class (sleeper …

Lessons from road traffic

Being the back-seat driver comes easily to Rekha. She ‘comments` on my driving and gives me tips on avoiding the spots of bother that I could get into. Always I rubbish her comments and continue driving. As a result, we have had long, silent sessions where neither of us spoke. Believe me. Such sessions are …

Sense of direction

My father besides being the best shooter in his battalion (at least that`s what he always told us) was also a good map reader. Only a person with a good sense of direction can read a map well (know more about it here). My father, who passed on to me his shooting skills (just that …

My wife is a murderer

I am a dreamer. I dream big. That`s why when I dreamt of a house, it was always the Buckingham palace. When I dreamt of a bridge, it was the Brooklyn bridge. When I dreamt of an actress, it was always…you guessed it right…Tun Tun. The problem is I can dream only if I am …

Never call a lady fat

A week back we had a heavy discussion on Ouchmytoe. Remember reading an article titled ‘A Fat Chance`? As a follow up, here is a link M0rph3us left in my comments box. It is an awesome read. The beauty is…it is both funny and informative at the same time. Reminds you of Ouchmytoe? Well…. Click …

Ouchmytoe On Desipundit

Ouchmytoe has made it to Desipundit for the second time. A post titled “A fat chance” made it to the collaborative Blog on 19th May. Click Here The last time something similar happened was way back in Sept 2005, when Desipundit found “Why people don`t believe in contraceptives” worthy enough to be showcased. Click Here …

My wife is selfish

“Why don`t Oysters donate? Because they are shellfish!” * * * * * I would have never known this but for my NCC friend Jayachandran`s decision to marry. I am glad his marriage opened my eyes to the ways of my wife. The connection? Read on. Being a working day, we had to leave office …

A fat chance

Why are married women fatter than the unmarried ones? Answer: That’s because when the single women come home they see what is in the fridge and go to bed. But when married women come home, they see what is in bed and go to the fridge. * * * * * I completely agree. Married …

Walking the distance

In the last couple of days I have realized that Ouchmytoe readers (and that means YOU!) only like funny articles. I also have a feeling you prefer articles targeting Rekha more than anything else. So, here is a promise – will try and include Rekha in each post of mine for the next one week. …

Maddox the Blog hater

The Alphabet of Manliness is a recent book written by a humor writer which is currently creating waves in the literary circles. I say humor writer with a lot of pride because like me he also maintains a funny/satire website titled ‘The Best Page In The Universe`. Unfortunately, he hates Blogs and this is how …

Some pictures from our Ooty trip

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 Rekha and I …

Appraisals are here

Having failed to find anything funny in appraisals, Ouchmytoe decided to borrow from the internet and come up with an interesting piece. I had my appraisals a few days back. Am glad I had read this article in The Hindu way back in 2004, for I was able to maintain my cool. As a result, …

Our Ooty trip

Our Ooty trip was great. Let`s take one hair-pin bend at a time. We reached Metupalayam on Saturday morning (29th April). As the train rolled into the station and I got down with the luggage…I had a feeling I had left behind something. I get this feeling often. Most of the time it is something …
