' Wishing You.........'

No More Karuna

Received a mail this morning from a friend:

Murali A Raghavan

When my friend Ranjit wanted to strengthen the security at his Lokhandwala residence, the choice before him was to either install a Zicom security system or get a dog. Ranjit pitched his bets on the latter because a dog not only raised alarm but also mounted an attack on the aggressor and woke up the entire neighborhood and got them involved in your problem.
“Lets go” Ranjit said and we were off to a dealer to have a look in at the available stuff.
Mehta welcomed us and asked us to take seat. Ranjit began “Mehta, frankly speaking, I am buying a dog for the first time. I’d therefore like to see a few varieties before I could decide.”
“Sure” said Mehta and thrust an album on our hands and started explaining. “This brown one which is sturdy, long and well built with black splashed around the nose area is Alsatian. It is a great fighter and can scare anyone from a distance. If you have taken loan from Citibank and are unable to repay it, Alsatian is must in your portfolio. I have two of it with excellent pedigree. One of its ancestors held a top position with CBI. It is expensive but a great one-time investment. It is better to have one Alsatian than two sons who may send you to old-age home in your twilight years.”
“Can you show us something less expensive?”
Mehta turned the leaf and showed us another and said “This one is a black spaniel. If you have a temperamental wife who keeps throwing things around in a fit of anger, it is an ideal companion for you. A great reliever that it is, it will chase and bring back whatever that is flung. It has never dropped a catch unlike our slip fielders. His forefathers hail from the same place as Jonty Rhodes which gives it an edge in the fielding department.”
“Okay Mehta, what else you have on the block?”
Mehta turned another leaf and continued “Look at this one. It is such a fine baby with curly white hairs. It is called miniature poodle. You can call it by variety of fond names like Pinky, Dolly, Rosie, Darling and Deepu and have the same satisfaction of bringing up a daughter. It likes to go for a long ride in the evening and take bath twice a day with Aloe Vera and used to a luxurious life. So, unless you own a Ferrari and can afford two bottles of shampoo every month, you should think twice before laying hands on this.”
Ranjit flipped through the album and finally showed the snap on the last page and said “What is this? This black one with ugly look wearing dark glasses resembles some one from Tamil Nadu.”
“Yes. This is the latest to join the ranks of the dogs. Normally the dogs bark only at human beings but this one barks at Gods. Also, the dogs are generally faithful but this one is not. So you can say it is a black sheep among dogs. I don’t recommend it to anyone.”
“I don’t understand one thing. If you are not selling it why have you kept it on display?”
Mehta smiled “You see when people come to this page they feel any dog is better than this and buy one. It helps us sell other breeds easily.”

Jehadi Malik !

This is for the Shoaib Malik, Captain Pakistan cricket team who cause of his Jehadi mentality begged for the apologies from the entire Muslims of world at loosing Twenty 20 world cup to India. I don’t know who gave him this right.

But I wanna strongly restrict him here that he may fell to his knees or paint his face black while sitting on a donkey in front of all the Muslims for apology but he should not dare involving Indian Muslims in his I-wanna-say-sorry-to list. Indian Muslims do not need his sorry. They are on the celebrating side. Pakistan should understand that very well till now.

I wished our Irfan Pathan should have said these words there on behalf of all Indian people.

Anyway, Chak De India!

Something has went wrong here at Blogger, I cannot load my page from my laptop since so many days. Though I can publish a post or edit but I am unable to view my page.
Many of my friends can view my page with ease but may be not all. The best part is there is no one in the 'Blogger Help Desk' to help :(
Dunno when this gonna solve.

Morning Raga

I was simply astonished. For me heaven is here at places like that only. Watching Morning Raga’ in between much tensed one day cricket match between Indian & England yesterday gave me opportunity to inhale the glorious colors of Andhra Pradesh villages.

Though story was interesting either but I could not watch the entire movie and otherwise also I don’t wanna talk about the story here right now but the views that movie has holding within.

In a word it was breath-holding. The perfect mixture of vibrant colors, waters, sky, Saries, red chilies, coconut trees, old styled Indian village houses using exotic colors for decoration, lush green plantation and the rhythm of Karnataka Sangeet took my heart away. Till now I never realized that Andhara have such beautiful locations. Despite some net search about the exact location of the place all I could find was a name of some Kulla estates but nothing more. But it does not matter as I already have decided to be there once at least with my SLR this way or that, today or tomorrow.

Wanna ride ?
