At the top of the summit…now…brace up for the slide

Birthday was good. Have bought a DVD player but am struggling to connect it to my TV. Spent close to two hours with the manual and am yet to figure it out. Guess, I am plain funny!

Remember…I am the same guy who had once inserted two ends of two steel wires into the socket and immersed the other two ends inside my steel tiffin box filled with water….all this in an attempt to invent a water heater. I did not know somebody had beaten me to the post by a clear 40 years.

Rekha`s gift was good. Here is a real challenge…. you all know Rekha better than I do. I know …I am her wife and all that…oops…husband and all that but still… for the last eight months you have been reading about her.

Can you guess the gift she gave me? And in the first attempt?
