Chilly Myth Part 2

Chilly Myth
Part 2
We are nearing the end of December, and it'll soon be January.. Its chilly in Delhi and other northern parts of the country(India that is). Now we call it Winter here(The season that is), but the thing that got me wondering is that what do they call it in areas where it aint that chilly? Say a city like Mumbai, or Kolkota? Is it called Warm Winters or December Summer, January Autumn maybe?

It may be an obvious answer for many, but it did get me and many of my friends thinking.. So i am seriously seeking an answer.. anyone?

Wedding Partea!

Wedding Partea!

Its weddings all around this time of the year.
Hate them, like them ,but u've definitely been to some of them.

Lets take a quick look at the Extended Menu of The Big Fat Indian Wedding -
Snacks(Paneer Tikka, samosa and so on) , Chaat Papdi, Pav Bhaji, Fruit Chaat, Gol Gappe(Pani Puri), Chowmein. Moving on to the main course, u'll get - Dal Makhni, Paneer(all variants), Dal Fry, Chole, Naan, Roti, etc. Then Sweet Dishes like Gulab Jamun, Barfi, Jalebi, Halwa, Ice Cream lure you towards the end.

That leaves us with the one section that supports them all - Beverages. You have - Juices, Cold Drinks, Hot Milk(Kesar Wala), Coffee, Water(Mineral).

So, thats one sumptuous meal right there, comprising it all, leaving nothing important out, right? Wrong!

Where is the Tea in the Wedding Partea?? I mean you serve every possible dish in the history of mankind, but what about the innocent tea, what wrong has it done to the wedding planners or the bride/groom family to not get included in Wedding's Hall of Fame! I say spare a thought for the tea drinkers who might be looking for a harmless cuppa right after their over stuffed meal!

Eagle Kill

Eagle Kill

Life is too short, Time is running out
Moments are too many, and days are too canny
The world is racing, your pulse is pacing
As u read this text, you don't know what's next
So, don't worry so much about the unpaid Bill,
Just take a deep breath, sit back and Eagle Kill..

(Eagle = Cheel(Chill), Kill = Maar)

Not funny eh? I know! :D

Her Name's Ms Kaul

Her Name's Ms Kaul
Its time to reveal her true identity
I met her back in college. Was in my second year then.
We saw each other a lot, but our interactions were short lived.
Actually it was a friend of mine who introduced me to her.
Strangely enough, if not me , then my friends would make it a point to remind me of her.
We exchanged glances through the day, at times even in the night, especially during exam time.
I soon introduced her to more friends of mine, without any of them realizing she was the one.
Its been many years now, and we've stuck with each other through thick and thin..
I would say... "Tring Tring".. Oops, gotta go, my phone's ringing...
Naah, its just Ms Kaul..

I Found Her..

I Found Her

It finally happened

I dont know how, when or where , but it just happened, i found her
We've always been close, spending hours on end with each other. Anytime, anyday, anywhere, she's been there for me
Very supportive, extremely helpful,she's always suggesting possible solutions to all my problems
The trait i most admire about her is her simplicity, the ease with which she gets things done

Even though her work keeps her really busy, but i can't seem to remember the last time she didnt have time for me

Its her, She's the one..
The Gal of my dreams

Whether Weather Best Breaks Ice?

Whether Weather Best Breaks Ice?

Picture this - A social gathering. You are there. You meet people. You dont really know them. You have nothing to talk about. You think. You feel uncomfortable. You think again. There's silence.. And then somebody says the magical words - "Its really hot today". Then the whole lot pitches in, "yes yes!" , "actually its more humid than its hot", "there is no breeze", "it should rain sometime soon i tell you", "its all because of global warming" and on go the weather experts to finally end up in a real time conversation.

Incase you havent been able to comprehend what this was all about, then dont blame yourself..

Left = Right..yaa, Right

Left = Right.. yaa, Right

Why does everything everytime have to be 'Right'? Why is it that we differentiate between Wrong and 'Right'? Why is the Hindi version of the 'Right' = Seedha(considered good) and Left = Ulta(considered bad)?

I say.. spare a thought for the left handed population. Just because the world is dominated by 'Right' handed individuals doesnt give us undue 'Right' to make them feel left out. For instance, just think how you would have felt if the "Enter key" on the keyboard was on your left instead of your 'Right'.

Something needs to be done about all this.. something needs to be done 'Right' now!

Maggi 2 Minute Noodles?

Maggi 2 Minute Noodles?

Now Maggi's one of the most liked dishes by anybody.. anywhere.. ever..

Not that i am a big fan,but its a fact, that kids to elders to kids to elders, they all love it. Reason - taste, ease of avaialability and the fact that you can prepare it in 2 Minutes.. Can You?
Lets make Maggi -
1) Cut the Pack and Sachet
2) Empty contents in a bowl of water
3) Start the flame.
4) Boil, Boil and Boil.. - The time depends on how raw a meal can you eat.

Now by the best of standards, all this takes you a minimum of 5 minutes!(it takes me more all the time).. so then the question is that why are they called Maggi 2 Minute Noodles???

The Chilly Myth

The Chilly Myth

Well i was wondering the other day, and here i am writing about it.

Its Chilly right now in Delhi. Its "Cold", but we say its "Chilly".

Then there is this spice that some people eat. It goes by the name of "Chilli" too. There are two kinds of Chilly - Red Chilli, Green Chilli.

Radio Mirchi, the Radio Station has a Chilli as its Logo.

Now Radio Mirchi's Punchline is "It's Hot".

So the question arises - Is Chilly 'Cold' or is it 'Hot'?

Does one use the term to refer to something 'Cold', or does one use the term to refer to something 'Hot'?

Answers Please...

Embarrassingly Funny Moments!

Embarrassingly Funny Moments!

There used to be this column in these things called “Slambooks”, which used to say - “Most Embarassing Moment : ” . This post here is dedicated to all such moments, moments that are embarassing for one, but funny for everyone :)

The Fire what??

Class 12th, mind you, in Bold letters, Class 12th. My English examination(not the final boards), and we'd to write an essay or something. I don't remember how, but i had to write something about a Fire Brigade. “Fire Brigade”, simple word, isnt it? Oh so easy to remember.. Oh so hard to forget.. so,i am writing, and writing, and i reach the place where i have to mention the “Fire Brigade”.. and what happens to me.. i go blank! I cant remember the thing that one has to call if there's a fire someplace, i know its “Fire something”, but cant remember the exact term. So, i show some creativity, and come up with a term by myself. The term i coin is - “FIRE AMBULANCE”!!! And then i actually wrote that in the answer sheet.. The sheet came back with the term encircled. To top it all, the teacher was Nath Ma'am!(u'd know her if u studied in Apeejay Noida).

Its one of those incidents that just stay with you for the rest of your life :) but its all fun i must say :)
