गुड़िया की फ्रोक!


I was quite indigent for quite some time. So was, in a manner of speaking, he. He got a windfall of about 20,000 Rupees. After paying off his local debts, including 800 to the chaiwala, he was left with 1200. He went and paid the entire amount against my phone bill. I complained that the bill […]

A woman’s age!


Morning visitor. HathniKund rest house. He asked your age. I was having my mattar mushroom fried. You told him. He commented. “मैडम, आपके बदन को देख कर तो नहीं लगता कि आप की age इतनी है!” I choked!!! We laughed. He left.

बसस्टॉप पर जादू वाली चाय मिलती है!


बसस्टॉप पर जादू वाली चाय मिलती है! इन्तज़ार करते रहो एक घंटा, बस नहीं आएगी। कप में चाय डलते ही, बस! तीसरी बार आज हुआ। चतुराई दिखाते हुए, आते ही चाय बोल दी। कप के हाथ मे आते ही बस भी आ गई! आज सोचा, चाय फैकूंगा नहीं। चाय समेत चढ़ने की जद्दोजहद में, लैपटॉप […]

Ashar and I!


It was love at first sight! I met him in 1979 and we became best of friends. In 1981, he changed the school and I raised my tantrums to be shifted. I was, as usual! 1982 end, I was admitted in The Daly College, whined about the hostel life and returned to Delhi in 1984. […]

Late. Mr. Ata-ul Ghaffar!


An अंकिलजी since 1979; an inspiration since 1991; CLL fighter since 1996 a friend since 2001. Mr. Ataul Ghaffar is being sorely missed! Everyday! Every moment reminds of his overwhelming presence with his attention to AND persistent follow-up of the minutest detail! Bhopal is my The-Mandatory-Stop when crossing equator of India. Sometimes, due to exigencies beyond […]

Puff the Magic Dragon


Puff the Magic Dragon This song *NEVER* fails to bring that odd-childish tear in my tired old eyes. So much so, I refrain from listening to this song in public! Now the question that bothers me for QUITE a few years (Since Denali Training.), off and on, is:  who am I?

High Time?


Yesterday I went to the marriage and later reception of Jaideep, son of Gursharan Uncle. I met many of my Father’s old friends and was especially impressed by the unforgettable social skills of Raman Saluja and his devoted wife. Had two large ones of Smirnoff Vanilla on both occasions. Came home and slept. Now come […]

Another Sleepless Night.


Yet another sleepless night. It is 6 AM now. Unless I knock myself out, sleep does not endorse/embrace me in my present condition! And knocking myself out is something I am trying OH so hardly hard, not to do. For how long? I would really love to know. For how long?


Happiness… … …is being with YOU… …

Still Blank…


There is quite a lot that has happened over these few months and might even be written over here and shared. Especially about my coming to Aapdo Aamdabad (Our Ahmedabad) and the various experiences. However, whenever I sit with this page in front of me, I get BLANK. Today, again the same happened. For how long, […]

Envy, Jealousy & Love :: Marriage, Not Natural, Invented Institution


This is something that I have to post here… So very INTERESTING…  And today is Friday the Thirteenth… What is jealousy? Jealousy is one of the most prevalent areas of psychological ignorance about yourself, about others and more particularly, about relationship. People think they know what love is — they do not know. And their […]

Stori/Theori… 404: Page Not Found. Server not Responding…


  There is this stori/theori, on how to make a shorter line of the two lines longer.   Draw it longer than the other! The Decent and Self-Esteemed and Gentlemanly and/or Ladylike way of doing things. NOW, (and I am very sure about this, for all of us; correct me if I am wrong.) that […]

Choosy Beggar…


She was dressed in inexpensive *designer-types* salwaar-kameez with a jhola to boot! Looked like one of those social-cause waali AuntyJi. We were in our car at AIIMS crossing. That was the time when there was a Red-Light there. (I wonder why we do not call it Green-Light???) “Hi Guys! How are doing today? Now, look, […]

HardWiring and Other Wiring…


There is, methinks, one “Hi” and ONE “Bye” per day in normal social intercourse. Gawd only knows what her agenda was. There was a “Hi” and then after a some time, maybe 45 minutes or 3 hours later, another one!!! Then there was that innocuous touching that is considered to be the first tender steps […]

R&R Love ???


  “””In real love you want the other person’s good. In romantic love, you want the other person….Margaret Anderson.””” I read this prettily-bloddy crappy quote in last Sunday’s Times of India.

Monday Blues. Time for Hollywoodian Revelation….


Past weekend I watched Ice Age 1 and 2, thank God for LimeWire. As we all know, we listen to what we want to hear, see what we want to look at, and identify with specific and constantly changing portions, in books and in movies and in situations, pertaining to our present state of mind […]

Deathwish From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia A deathwish is English idiom for the complete disregard of one’s own personal safety, well-being or best interests.
