Actress Meena is coming to my office today. And I am all set.
I have been told before that I look good wearing a white shirt, so washed the one that had been dirty for the last ten days. Had to iron it too.
Had a nice bath and used a shampoo after a month or so. It is becoming a costly affair. The sachets that used to be Rs 1 when I joined Indian Express five years ago are now Rs 3 or 4. And the popular ones like Halo, Clinic Plus etc are relegated to the dark corners of the Kirana (Kinara in Hindi and `Corner` in English) stores.
Anyways, applied gel on my shampooed hair. I somehow need to convey to the actress that I look better when my hair is longer, and she postpone her decision if it is in the negative.
The Frenchie gave way to the Jockey. After all, looks also matter. Initially, I did have my reservations coz I was no superman (and Idid not wear it on my trousers), but the logic did not hold water and I decided in favor of the slightly faded Jockey.
Did not shave. Remember reading in one interview of hers long time back that, she likes a rugged look.
The recent recruits in my team are not at all enthused about the actress’ arrival. Was she before their time? If that is the case, would I look old, if I get excited about Meena?
The congress leader GK Moopanar was old and he did get excited about Meena….
