fine print

When my friend said he would help me purchase a new spanky home, I should have guessed what was coming......

Isn't it that many times we hear what we want to.......and not exactly what is being said?

Thursday, August 03, 2006


One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live.
They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.
On their return from their trip, the father asked his son,"How was the trip?"
"It was great, Dad."
"Did you see how poor people live?" the father asked.
"Oh yeah," said the son.
"So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.
The son answered: "I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and
they have a creek that has no end.We have imported lanterns
in our garden and they have the stars at night.Our patio
reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon.
We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields
that go beyond our sight.We have servants who serve us,
but they serve others.We buy our food, but they grow theirs.
We have walls around our property to protect us, they have
friends to protect them."
The boy's father was speechless.
Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me
how poor we are."
Isn't perception a wonderful thing?

Nyaabagam Varudhe ....Nyaabagam Varudhe....

* During the annual sports day in School, filling my MILTON cool water bag with lots of Ice cubes and Trinka Orange Juice in it....and the 'aiyaiyo' face when someone asked for water!

* During the Unit test in school, praying that the rickshawkaaran should not turn up to pick us up from home to school ;-D (without realising that our parents are a lot smarter than us!)

* Going to Vivekananda College in my Street-Cat cycle.....thinking that it was better than a YAMAHA!

* Getting a tamil poetry (supposedly an attempt to propose!) from a girl (who looked like our original JASSI of Jassi jaise koyi nahin) during my college days ;-D

* The time spent outside the computer coaching center, that is a lot more than the time spent inside the class.......

* The day I got the offer letter for my first job....and treating my folks in "Fruit shop on Greams Road :-)

* When I received my first pay-slip, ran into the rest room to see my first salary amount as i was mobbed with customers in the bank. The excitement was priceless.

* The kadan of 200rs to my best friend about ten years ago that he owes even today...... I still ask him to repay ;-) just for fun. Autish, You mean a lot daa...thanks for being my best friend!

* All the good time I had working here........I had a ball.

* My little dog. We lost him eventually.

South Roaming : 2

I miss home and I want to return to India so badly!

* Have you heard of Global Adjustments? They have done fantastic job in Expatriate relocation assistance for those who move into Chennai. Very Interesting concept and a neat website. Take a look.

* Gates open to Bill ;-) See some pictures...

Hutch goes Crazy. Chennai folks - its just not the Hutch dog, Its Crazy Mohan who will follow your hutch phone too!

* Worst appearance...Oops, Guest appearance -
'I'm quitting to "Save" party from further embarassment'. You said it right, Natwar!

* International Roaming - If Virgin sticks to what it says, We should soon be encashing the frequent flier miles to go to the space!!

It Pays To Be A Banker !!

There is this eligible bachelor in a club house looking for someone to dance with.
He finds a pretty lady and asks her if she can dance with him.
She agrees with slight hesitation, but gets comfortable... And they have a ball.
While they are dancing, he proposes to her.

She is taken aback and asks –“We know each other just for the past half hour. How could you make up your mind so fast?”

The guy replies: “Agreed - I know you only for the past half hour. But I have been managing your Dad’s bank account for the last five years!!”

South Roaming

"South Roaming", new series that is a compilation of news and views from South India. An effort to cover all that I find interesting all across this beautiful part of India.

* Guess this is what huge salary hikes in the software Industry does to the Bangalore car market.

* Flood damage in TamilNadu 'colossal' says the central team.

Weather and Cricket match - both uncertain ;-) DNA states that Chennai faces weather, legal and Insurance worries.

* Jet Airways launches daily flights from Chennai to Singapore. One more in the already crowded market. I hear that the Singapore airlines is planning to make its daily flight out of chennai to Double daily shortly.

* If you are a resident of Kochi or if you have visited Kochi recently, You will agree with me why High court of Kerala interferes to curb traffic blocks. MG Road in Kochi is a nightmare to motorist and the pedestrians. Hope something gets done faster to give some breathing space to the God's own country.

And finally, Namma Chennaila Idhu maadhiri Tamizh pesi paarunga paarkalam? Thalaila molagaa arachu anupuvaanga ;-)

West Indian Humor

I'm in this lovely place on an official assignment. I have been here for the last one month. Pristine beaches, lovely people, space that is simply captivating and awesome. And there is the unique West Indian humour that is pretty evident.

# I had a guy and a lady , member of the bank staff (where I work) to receive me from the Airport in Providenciales. When I got dropped in the Apartment, I thanked her and she replied saying that I’m like her son and I need not thank her. While she was saying that, this guy interrupted and asked her if HE is not her son. She immediately replied - “You are the kind of son that a mom will love only on his pay-day”!!

# One other day, In the middle of the banking hall, a male staff member was actually showing off his tummy and shouting that something had bitten him badly and it was paining like hell ! There came an immediate reply from one of the corners – "May be it’s the chicken from inside" ;-) He checked with the Doctor regarding that unbearable pain and found that it was a Spider bite.
You must have guessed it by now- Next day, we all knew how to call him – "SPIDER MAN".

# My turn ;-) – I was at my desk when one of the staff barged in to ask a question while I was in the middle of some important work..….apparantely she realized that I was busy and checked if she was wasting my time, quite apologitically. I responded (obviously, on a lighter note) – “Don’t worry, I won't let you waste my time. I’m good at that, so I won't let anyone do that for me" ;-)

I received the latest e-statement of my Airtel Mobile and noticed that they have given me 50% discount on all Local and STD calls that were made from my phone on my Birthday!

I think it is really a nice gesture and a creative attempt by the Airtel guys....I only wish they had told me before hand so that I could have planned accordingly ;-D

This blog is up for sale!!

Got your attention. That's precisely what this post is all about.

when I decided to get into the blogsville, I had a good mind to use my connection with the mafia and ask him to give a space in his blog to tell his visitors that I am back. (He he, I still have it, you listening Mr.Sambhar?)

As an extension of that, I started wondering how much blogsites can do in order to promote their own and other sites/products.

Imagine MTR or sakthi sambhar masala Ad pop-up when you land at this site, or an exagerrated situation where a company starts producing Thayirsaadham mix in order to put up their banner Ads at this popular site ;-D.

I can even foresee people selling or buying up a blogsite to ride on the credibility and the hit rates that a blogsite attract(as if these guys would let that happen!).

'Ads by google' is already a familiar box which one would like to ignore in most of the blogsites unless you have a deal with someone like these guys had.

The point is to get your hit rate and reviews going much ahead of other sites. everybody's watching you see.

"You Never Forget Your First Time"

I have been wanting to post this since the time I flew Kingfisher airline on a domestic leg in India. The moment I saw the e-ticket, I had the impression of flying a low cost airline. But then, I was proved wrong. Just when I reached the airport and got-off the car, I saw these helpers from this airline waiting for passengers to help them carry their baggage into the airport. You can easily recognise them with their red dress and the kingfisher logo on them. One of them came over to me and asked politely if I was flying Kingfisher. When I said yes, He offered to carry my baggage till the screening area and then on to the check-in counter.

I was even pleased with the way the lady at the check-in counter treated me and the good experience was carried on even to the plane. It was an 'ALL ECONOMY CLASS' flight with wider seats with personal screen on each one of them!. You get amazing hot food and goodies that included key chain,head-phone,candies all packed in a nice red pouch that can be used to carry your mobile phone or your sun-glasses.

Mind you, when I saw the fare on the ticket, I really had an impression that it was a low-cost carrier. So what I have come to understand is that there are full-cost carriers and there are low-cost no-frills airline and there are these 'value for money' airlines in between which are in existence.

And particularly about kingfisher, we know that it is owned by Vijay mallya. A person who I always prefer to call as the 'Richard Branson of India'. For your information, Richard Branson is the man at the helm of Virgin group and also owns Virgin Atlantic airways. I have not flown Virgin Atlantic, But I have read that the Virgin planes spoil customers with far superior service and choices.

They both are very similar in more than one characteristics. They are flamboyant, make enormous wealth, very powerful, so on.So I'm not surprised that they both have a strong red theme around their airlines.

Like the Virgin Ad goes,"You never forget your first time....". I truly agree with this advertisement in relation to flying Kingfisher Airlines.

If you consider the airline industry in India, The changes that are going through are as fast as these aircraft fly. And as consumers, we are treated with plethora of choices that are real value for money.

Still I'm gonna miss my bachelor days....

Madrasa sutti paarka poren......Leaving for Chennai tomorrow for a big family reunion - my sister, cousins and all have come down for my wedding.Of course meeting friends, shopping etc. The energy to do all this will come automatically the moment Chennai heat hits you!! We will return to Bangalore in time for the wedding.

Chennai has been my favourite city and will remain so. I hate the fact that i will not be travelling to Chennai very often. My Bro has shifted to Hyderabad and my parents will soon be shifting too..............Chennai,My first love.

Google googly........ Before I sign-off, some interesting stuff for you.

Google, Type the word Google backwards in the Google Search i.e. "elgoog" and press "I'm Feeling Lucky"


Try searching there too... More Surprise!! I'm amused with the curiosity level of the inventor...

I r u v a r :-)

I have a twin brother (My Dad has a twin too!). We are Identical twins, even now. He works in Hyderabad and I work in Bangalore. It is so much fun having someone who is so identical that it gets you into some hilarious situations.

My brother is married for 4 years now and has a lovely boy who is just about 7 months old. I remember distinctly – During my Engagement that happened few months ago, I saw someone greeting my brother for engagement which is supposedly for ME! That is still better considering the fact that somebody asked me how my kid is! This is disastrous, right?

When both of us were working in Chennai, We bump into each other's colleagues who refused to believe that I was not him (or he was not me??)

There has been situations where he got to have sweets and paayasams twice. You guessed it how, obviously. I believe my Thatha & paati could not recognise who is who till their last breath.

There is this joke in our family that his father-in-law gave him a gold bracelet for his wedding just to identify easily who his ‘maapiley’ is ;-D!

He is particularly special to me and has similar likes, dislikes, preference, priorities, interest etc just like the looks. Sometimes I'm astonished that we actually think so much alike (somethings as trivial as buying same brand of tooth brush and the same colour, though living in different city!!). It is extremely nice to have him around as we both have a great sense of humour and understanding.

Not many experience this – when my Brother wishes me on my birthday and I reciprocate by saying ‘same to you’ daa! It is absolutely thrilling.

My Brother – My biggest strength and my weakness.

Tuesday, May 24, 2005


Cha - Ennoda friends'ku konjam kooda timing theriyala. Edha eppo anupurathunu vevasthai venaam? With less than 20 days to go for my wedding, they send me such a joke (the one you will read after hearing out my crib!). Friends'aa avanga? Enemies ;-D! But Anyways, You read on.Sure to make your day, if not mine!

#A married man left from work early one Friday afternoon. Instead of going home, however, he squandered the weekend (and his salary) partying with the boys.

When he finally returned home on Sunday night, he ran into a barrage of epithet from his wife.
After a couple of hours of nagging and berate, his wife asked "How would you like it if you didn't see me for a couple of days?"

"That would suit me just fine!!!" the man said.

Monday went by, and the man didn't see his wife.

Tuesday went by with the same result.

Wednesday went by with the same result.

Thursday, the swelling went down a bit and he could see her a little, just out of the corner of his left eye.#

Idhu eppadi irukku?!

Paavam Thayirsaadham ;-(

Oooh aaah ouch! - Remember this 80's Ad for a pain-balm?? This is exactly the state that I’m in....With the great ME moving into a new apartment. Home-alone now.

There is so much running around that you do when you set up a new home. It gets too exhausting. But I look back and there were some hilarious moments too;-D

So many struggles I went through for the new gas connection that is simply not worth it. When I went to apply for it, I was told that it would take a maximum of three days to get it. Thought that was cool. I waited in vain. For 10 days. I went to their office, fuming with anger and I just blew them apart. I told the guy if he didn't deliver the cylinder before the day-end, I would complain to the union finance minister. Now, wait, where the heck this came from?? I didn’t know. I blurted it out without even thinking. Luckily, that dud didn’t know either;-D. Effect? Cylinder delivered.

But I’m pissed off with that cylinder fellow so much that even today, if I am irritated with something or someone else, I feel like calling him and blasting ;-)

When I had gone to check out the apartment before finalising, the owner was
rolling out that the apartment is the best I could get in the near
vicinity (I must say-the apartment is very classy indeed). She mentioned about loads of facilities available. Gym was one of them. And I was certainly thrilled. I'm just realising now that there is no need for that. My entire apartment is a gym for me.....with washing clothes, cleaning the floor and vessels, sweeping......all by myself.....romba koduma. Guess if I don't consider washing machine, vacuum cleaner, dish washer as a necessity I will be forced to settle for stretcher and walking stick as a permanent feature at my home.

Indha toilet clean pannara velaye thalavali. evallavuthaan
thechaalaum, innum konjam clean pannalaamnu thonum.

Eppodaapa monday varum, officeku pogamaatenaanu irukku ;-D

Even 20 days after moving in to the apartment and 21 power cuts (It happens in Bangalore!!), I didn’t notice that we had a generator for uninterrupted power supply. I believe it involves just pushing the switch meant for that inside the apartment. I didn't know that. Yesterday, while I was walking down the corridor to get into my apartment, I noticed all other apartments had power and not mine. Out of curiosity, I checked with our ever-friendly watchman. He came into my apartment and showed how it works and asked me 'ghothillaavaa?' in kannada with a funny face;-@. I had to tell that guy that I had trouble pushing the switch upward (my BIG bloody ego!)

The watchman- Indha aiyaa daily apartmentula irukara ella car'ayum clean pannuvaaru, provisions saamaan vaangindu varuvaaru, vegetables vaangindu varuvaaru, two-wheeler ellam clean pannuvaaru, Bank povaaraam (!!)....but avar enna velai pannaraarunaa - Watchman velaiyaam ;-)) Naanum adha nambanum. Thala ezhuthu.

My marriage is coming up next month. Now you are thinking there is finally going to be someone to share my work.....hmmmm....I’m hoping that my work doesn't get doubled;-D !!

ET-Millions visit you everyday, Be responsible please !

I bumped into this Corporate Zodiac in the online edition of the Economic Times today. ET has got this habit - To snub its valued visitors / readers with such absurd and rude observations about their work/lifestyle etc. I think that a Business newspaper such as this (which has built a brand around its visibility) should be more responsible and be careful on its contents. A Newspaper's responsibility is not to be entertaining, but be informative (Let me admit-i liked the humour in this article!!). How far will ET go? How long are we going to take this?

I strongly protest. Take a look at this . you will agree with me.

The link to the stuff appended below is here.

ENGINEERING : One of only two signs that actually studied in school, it is said that ninety percent of all Personal Ads are placed by engineers. You can be happy with yourself: your office is typically full of all the latest gadgets. However, we all know what is really causing your carpal tunnel.

ACCOUNTING : The only other sign that studied in school, you are mostly immune from office politics. You are the most feared person in the organization; combined with your extreme organizational traits, the majority of rumors concerning you say that you are completely insane.

HUMAN RESOURCES : Ironically, given your access to confidential information, you tend to be the biggest gossip within the organization. Possibly the only other person that does less work than marketing, you are unable to return any calls today because you have to get a haircut, have lunch, and mail a letter!

MARKETING : You are ambitious yet stupid. You chose a marketing degree to avoid having to study in college, concentrating instead on drinking and socializing - which is pretty much what your job responsibilities are now. Least compatible with sales.

SALES : Laziest of all signs, often referred to as "marketing without a degree", you are also self-cantered and paranoid. Unless someone calls you and begs you to take their money, you like to avoid contact with "customers" so you can "concentrate on the big picture". You seek admiration for your golf game throughout your life.

TECHNOLOGY : Unable to control anything in your personal life, you are instead content to completely control everything that happens at your workplace. Often even you don't understand what you are saying, but who the hell can tell?! It is written that the Geeks shall inherit the Earth.

MANAGEMENT/ TEAM LEADERS : Catty, cut-throat, yet completely spineless, you are destined to remain at your current job for the rest of your life. Unable to make a single decision you tend to measure your worth by the number of meetings you can schedule for yourself. Best suited to marry other managers, as everyone in your social circle is a manager.

CUSTOMER SERVICE : Bright, cheery, positive, you are a fifty-cent cab ride from taking your own life. As a child very few of you asked your parents for a little cubicle for your room and a headset so you could pretend to play ‘customer service’. Continually passed over for promotions, your best bet is to manage your manager.

While on this, look at Kaps' post on the Bakwaas Times. Kaps has named ET appropriately.
Hope I have your permission to give this link, Kaps.

Drink for a good sleep or to think better????

Many parents in India give Horlicks to their children in hopes that it will help them excel in studies (I drink it even today!!).

In UK, Horlicks is sold as an aid to promoting sleep at night and the manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline, is recommending a glass of Horlicks before going to bed to have a good sleep.

Horlicks is sold in India and UK. If you Visit the website of Horlicks, you'll find that the Horlicks India website is still under construction, whereas the UK site is up and running and clearly documents sleep related problems and how Horlicks helps in sleeping.

Malt contained in drinks such as Horlicks, Ovaltine, etc., is responsible for promoting sleep. People who drink alcohol will be familiar with malt, especially with barley malt, which is used in the process of producing beer, lager, etc. You might have even heard of malt whiskey.

What does this mean?!?! Horlicks helps in sleeping and hence, should not be given to students while they're trying to study!?

Many average children are already stressed out due to overload atschool.What is the point in making them drowsy and sleepy when they go to school or when they are trying to study! By the way, Don't miss to see the site. It's been done really nice.

Traffic jam over my head !!

No Joking....Look at reports about the new and upcoming private airlines in India -

SpiceJet sells 37,348 tickets on first day - Largest Number in Asia.

Promotional scheme from Kingfisher Air

Another daily flight between Chennai and Kuala Lumpur - by Jet Airways.

There is a new low-cost version of our desi AirIndia - Air India Express that launched its flights

Thanks to the private airlines based out of Bangalore - AirDeccan, Kingfisher Airlines. It is now the most busiest domestic airport in India after Mumbai. You must see the state of Bangalore Airport- You would not believe that it can be the second most busiest domestic airport in India. Happy Flying!!

Why did I fire my Secretary?

This is a hilarious stuff i received. Read on-

As I walked into my office, my secretary, Janet, said, "Good morning Boss, Happy Birthday"
And I felt a little better; someone had remembered.

I worked until noon. Then, Janet knocked on my door and said "You know, it's such a beautiful day outside and it's your birthday . Let's go to lunch, just you and me." I said, "By George, that's the greatest thing I've heard all day. Let's go." We went to lunch. We didn't go where we normally go; we went out to the country to a little private place. We had two martinis and enjoyed lunch tremendously. On the way back to the office, she said, "You know, it's such a beautiful day. We don't need to go back to the office, do we?" I said,"No, I guess not." She said, "Let's go to my apartment." After arriving at her apartment , she said, "Boss, if you don't mind, I think I'll go into the bedroom and slip into something more comfortable."
"Sure," I excitedly replied. She went into the bedroom and, in about six minutes, came out carrying a big birthday cake, followed by my wife, children, and dozens of our friends, all singing Happy Birthday.
And there I sat...on the couch..........naked!!!
