To My Sarkar

Dear Government,

We, citizens of democratic India, request you to kindly let us choose what we want to watch on TV. Please don’t decide for us. We are matured, educated & sensible enough to make a decision in case we have children.

Think of young working couples who would want to rejuvenate themselves by watching some good nice programs in their cozy home after a tiring day.


A citizen of India

Note- An early decision to this highly unjust judgment is highly appreciated.

Bald & Beautiful

Being unnaturally bald is in. Think of it. It keeps your head in shape (and in limelight as well !). No expense of comb, haircut, shampoo, various gels & dyes etc. No need to waste your precious time & hard earned money in hiding your beautiful container of intellectuals. No need for wet look, egg look is THE best look. ;)

And when you move hands over your recently shaved head, ahaaa what satisfaction it gives you!! You feel like a king, never wanting to remove your hands from your prized possession. And trust me, in your new look, you look very sexy and macho ;)

Why do you think some of the people like Mike Tyson, Michael Jordan, Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, Pritish Nandy and Aditya Panscholi always want to remain the baldy way? Shane Warne and David Beckham tried it as well. Recently Sreesanth, Irfan Pathan, Michael Ballack and now Vivek Raqsinha all followed the same path, just to experience the ultimate.

So, guys, it’s time for you to look & feel better (before you go naturally bald).

Ye Baarishon ka Mausam

Rim jhim gire Sawan, sulag sulag jaaye man
Bheege aaj is mausam mein, lagi kaisi ye agan

Pehle bhi yu to barse the badal
Pehle bhi yu to bheega tha aanchal
Abke baras kyu sajan sulag sulag jaaye man
Bheege aaj is mausam mein, lagi kaisi ye agan

Is baar Sawan dehka hua hai
Is baar Mausam behka hua hai
Jaane peeke kare kya pawan sulag sulag jaaye man
Bheege aaj is mausam mein, lagi kaisi ye agan

Rains, rains Don’t go away.. I love you. You fascinate me, make me joyous, happy, cheerful and of course you make me feel utterly romantic. Every season when your first showers touch the naked soil, it smiles like a new sleeping bride being kissed and its fragrance.. Ummm I just love it. I like to get drenched. And when you splash your drops on my face… Ahaa! What a feeling!

You bring smiles on a farmer’s face; kids welcome you with paper boats. They play football when you are pouring. There is nothing more we all want. My way of welcoming you is getting mesmerized watching you for hours from my window with kanda bajjiya’s & hot tea at my side, some soft music, & light reading or jigsaw puzzles and when you sprinkle your little droplets on my face, I feel out of the world. :))

Somethings that I long to do one fine day ;)

People have numerous things on their mind what they want to do (with or without pun intended). I am no exception. Not that I am incompetent; I can do & achieve almost all of my so-called “dreams”, all of them are doable but somehow the golden opportunity has been evading me.

Though my entire list is quite long, following are a few things I would like to do NOW, Just now.

1. Traveling on a bael-gaadi (bullock-cart). If you happen to be in Delhi during night time on ring road, sometimes you can see hordes of such carts with long iron girders with red cloth & a lantern hanging at the end giving a warning sign. They move at such a slow speed that anyone who knows walking can overtake them. I have always wanted to go home on one of those.

2. Read a cheap roadside Hindi novel by an unknown author e.g. Jawani ki raaten, Khoon bhari dastaan. Out of curiosity, I just want to know what is there in these novels that makes them saleable and hot property & why so many people in India still buy, read and enjoy them? So then, why can’t I be one of them ;) at least for a day?

3. Sleep on a beach (clean beach ofcourse!! :)) in a moonlit night. Yes, I want to sleep one day ooops sorry one night on a lonely beach staring at the stars, listening to the waves, lost in my own thoughts but no dogs around me please. I am aware it’s extremely difficult task to be alone, especially in India, considering my friendly neighbours like crabs, snails, dogs and some “manly” creatures who would want to give me unwanted company all the time. I can imagine the morning after, but still I want to do it. It’s in my wishlist. ;)

4. Meet a criminal. Yeah, I want to meet, shake hands, speak and spend a day with a hardcore & notorious criminal in his cell, again out of curiosity. I want to see them closely. Want to analyze their minds. Want to share their pains or whatever they call it. Even to think of it, it has already started giving me goose bumps but I think I can manage it with my head held high (If it remains attached to my shoulder after meeting him).

5. Sing on a crowded road in rains. Rains fascinate me and I want to sing loudly when it’s raining heavily (read pouring) during peak evening hours, and create a traffic jam. And there’s no better place than Mumbai to carry out this lovely activity. The roads I have short listed are S V Road, Andheri-chakala/saki naka, Milan subway, Gandhi Nagar crossing which are always under construction and full of lovely pot holes. I don’t give a damn to the policeman standing there or people shouting at me. I just want to do it once.
