Arm your bachelor friends

Oscar Wilde had once said “Rich bachelors should be heavily taxed. It is not fair that some men should be happier than others.” How untrue? Who says bachelors are happy? They aren`t. It is not easy hanging around in the office, in pubs and finally sitting before a desktop and choosing between movies like ‘Angels …

Encounters of the third kind

Three days back I met a girl in Gurgaon. Needless to say, she was pretty. I was smitten by her the moment I saw her – probably because I had spent six years in Chennai and was longing for somebody fair. If you are a Chennai woman you will have to excuse me…I am only …

Sending off a girl to Mumbai

Sending off a friend on a short assignment out of town is a difficult task. More difficult if she is a 27-year-old pretty girl. Today one of my girl colleagues left for Mumbai on an assignment. She would be away from office for close to a fortnight and we are all going to miss her. …

Losing bets

A ‘bet` is an interesting concept. For both Sachin fans and chiropterologists a ‘bat` might seem a better concept but for a gambler like me, ‘bet` is definitely ‘bet`ter.

Self made PJs

These are originals and not lifted from anywhere. When somebody as intelligent as Jammy sits down and comes up with PJs, he is bound to raise some heavy questions. For example – Do dining chairs actually dine? (I say heavy questions because of the font size and nothing else) Here are more – Why does …

Entering a new house

Entering a new house is an art in itself. Way back in 1997 when my father built a house in Madurai from his retirement funds, he made a cow enter the house first. I am serious. As if getting a shepherd and paying him Rs 100 wasn`t enough the cow was forced to stay inside …

Vikram Nandwani – at Point Blank range

I was once in love with a girl whose second name was Punjwani. Since she already had a boy friend the affair was brief – so short that I don`t even remember her first name. Having once loved a Punjwani…it is only right that the second blog Ouchmytoe recommends is Point Blank of Vikram Nandwani …

Looking for a house in Gurgaon

I have been searching for a house in Gurgaon for the whole of last week. While searching for my abode, I have been made to dwell and eventually believe that in Gurgaon…there are no quarters taken and no given. Perhaps that`s why in the last couple of days I have accommodated a third man (my …
