Tongue in cheek !

February 23, 2010


  • Mrs Hitchwriter says we love marriage wala’s cant really be called the ones who did love marriage, infact she thinks arranged marriage wala’s actually fall in love and marry, where as most love marriage wala’s have weighed all options and then fall in love !!!!! :roll:


  • Strange how when the rest of the world is switching from plastic to paper… Parle has gone from paper to plastic… Parle-G and Krackjack are prime examples… Krackjack is one of my most favourite biscuits and I seriously believe the plastic packaged Krackjack is just not at all the same as earlier while it was in paper…


  • Once on a train journey during college I was humming, “Kahi door jab din dhal jaaye…” and hone waali Mrs Hitchwriter asked me to stop as people were listening and I just said, so what, I sound like Mukesh… and a guy besides us interrupted and told hone waali Mrs Hitchwriter, “actually he does sound like Mukesh !” sigh… I seriously never have felt like hugging a guy other than my son… but that day, then, THAT was the one guy I should have hugged !!!!!!!! :P :P :P :P

    • February 23, 2010 10:49 pm

      :P :P :P

      just a few random disucssion points while watching TV !!!! :

  4. February 23, 2010 10:51 pm

    Hmmm…the first one is true. :)
    Didn’t knew about the second one! :D
    And at the 3rd one…you should have! :p

    • February 23, 2010 10:53 pm

      is the first one true… I thought that was strange logic !!!!!!! :P may be she was speaking for herself… weighing me before picking me :P :P

      • February 23, 2010 11:01 pm

        Yeah, we weigh the Looks, Nature, Temperament etc and then gradually fall more in love… :)

      • February 24, 2010 6:26 am

        good that at that time you weighed a considerable amount less than you are now :roll:

  5. February 23, 2010 10:59 pm

    The wife is a sage! Agree to the plastic waala point. Seriously do you sound like Mukesh? Me wants to hear you

  6. February 24, 2010 12:03 am

    Cute post.. random points but good fun reading em… :D

    My sis used to scream at me -earlier whenever we were travelling, i would have the ipod plugged in an sing along, not realising i was singing aloud.. and then one day, the guy next to me shut her up saying – ur sis sings well.. :D hehehe

    btw, this cant be the Longggggggggggggggg post u were ref to..!! where is that??

    • February 24, 2010 12:03 am

      Wish Parle G n krackjack stop using plastic wrappers…

      • February 24, 2010 11:19 am

        I have that same bad habit… once in train at 4 am I was waiting for my stop with earphones and I was humming I had the biggest INSULAT done… a sleeping passenger got up and told me to not sing aloud !!!!!!!!!! :(

  7. February 24, 2010 12:14 am

    1. So not true ! SO NOT TRUE !!! :D :D :D :D :D

    2. You eat only plastic and paper ??? no biscuits for you ????

    3. You meant singer Mukesh ! But he wouldve meant some other mukesh !!! :D :D or probably, he made that statement because he was gay and was expecting you to hug him !!! :D :D :D

    last but not the least, whose tongue and whose cheek are you are talking about ???

    • February 24, 2010 1:03 am

      ‘last but not the least, whose tongue and whose cheek are you are talking about ???’ LOL, Vimmuuu!

      • February 24, 2010 6:27 am

        :lol: Vimmu….marriage has got the best out of you…you have come out funnier and smarter I say.

      3. LOL Vimmuuu ;)

  8. February 24, 2010 1:01 am

    So now ar eyou doubting Mrs Hitchwriter’s wisdom? Did we not prove to you that all your luck resides with her ;)

    Mukesh? Are you sure he heard you right ;) And hug him! – yes, I can understand that :)

    Krackjack! What I would do to get hold of some! I never find anything similar here. Plastic or paper – I don’t care as far as it is krackjack :)

    • February 24, 2010 6:29 am

      sobs me too smiths…wnat Krackjack :cry: and hide and seek too

      • February 24, 2010 11:24 am

        Lol… dont tell me Smi you agree to the first point… even she herself doesnt but since that gyaan was coming at that point.. I thought the gyaan must be shared with blog vaasi’s !!!! :P :P

        I heard absolutely right ! :D

        Krackjack !!!!! :P :P :P sigh Parle was such a good company but kept selling itself.. :(

        Hide n Seek is sooooper Sakshi.. even the Parle Bourbon the new one is superb !!!!!!!

        • February 24, 2010 10:35 pm

          You want me to drool more? Hide n seek! I love Indian biscuits! The digestives we get here are so tasteless :(

          • March 2, 2010 5:51 pm

            oh yes the digestives are horrible:-S, I like the Brittania Pure Magic biscuits :-)

  9. February 24, 2010 1:43 am

    3rd point… I like to hear :) :)

  10. February 24, 2010 3:17 am

    I know what you mean by the parle, krackjack thing. I have never enjoyed the plastic packed Parle-G as much as I used to the paper wrapped one. It was yumm.

    And I like this post, smiley waala post for me in the morning!

    • February 24, 2010 11:25 am

      you know my school in Mumbai was in Vile Parle… and sometimes we used to go by local train and you can smell the biscuits as you pass the factory.. since then this brand is etched in my mind !!!! the paper wrapped one was definitely more crispy !!!!
      :D :D :D

      • March 2, 2010 5:55 pm

        When I was in the 9th std, we had to do a written report on a factory and my friend & I went to Parle-G biscuits factory. We got to see the entire workings of the machinery & packaging. Whenever I think of it automatically I smell the aroma :-D

  11. February 24, 2010 3:29 am

    I better hear this Mukesh voice to believe it is not a myth. Before you leave Indore.

  12. February 24, 2010 4:28 am

    Me likes Mrs Hitchwriter..sound logic that..if a little twisted :)

    I did not know they switched to plastic..why..??..That is like their trademark..costing them too much money :?: :?: ..Me wants to know the reason..else me brain goes into overload. with Mrs Hitchwriter (to be then) on this..I doubt you sound anywhere close to Mukesh. Me would like a proof before agreeing. much ‘me’ in this comment. If me continues like will forget English.. :)

    • February 24, 2010 11:30 am

      a lil twisted ?? lol.. I thought its completely twisted !!!!!! :P

      Now now.. relax… they must have switched to plastic for money without doubt… but sigh.. wish they wouldnt have :(

      Another one is demanding to hear me… the public demand is increasing !!!! Can I hear you people… !!!!! :D

  13. February 24, 2010 6:16 am

    The 3rd. point – you dreamt it…

  14. February 24, 2010 6:31 am

    Well if you think we will all beg you to sing and put it up on your blog….YOU R WRONG!!! Friendship and all on one side and sanity and healthy ears on one side ok?

    Argggh is Mrs. Hitchwriter right?? *shudders at the thought* Will stand by you on this one :mrgreen:

    • February 24, 2010 11:31 am

      Jaa… Jaaa…. Jaaaaaaaa…. mujhe na ab dost keh tu… !!!!!!

      so many are demanding to hear me and you call it INSANITY !!!!!!! DHOKEBAAAAZ !!!!!!!


    • February 24, 2010 11:54 am

      Ha ha ha ha … well said Saksh :P

  15. February 24, 2010 7:02 am

    Mrs. Hitchwriter is 100% right! You are lucky, you know!

    I haven’t seen the plastic wrapped krackjack yet. The old wrapper was good enough.

    Does Mrs. HW sing?!

    • February 24, 2010 11:32 am

      She aint Sandhya… just coz she is a female dont take her side !!!!! :P

      She might want to sing.. but she will have to wait till I stop !!!!!! :P :P :P

      • February 24, 2010 1:03 pm


        Keep writing even after you go to Bharuch, Dhiren! All the best to you and your family!

  16. February 24, 2010 8:40 am

    yeah at 3r.. thats a huge compliment but u havent still given us proof of that my dear…

    and yeah she does have a point there but its like jumping in without knowing how deep is the water

    • February 24, 2010 11:33 am

      as you also demanding to hear me ??? please to state more directly !

  17. February 24, 2010 9:14 am

    Mrs. Hitchwriter does have a point!!! :P

    Yea.. Parle G and Krackjack – older versions were better and tastier!

    We need proof Hitchy! Actual proof that you sing like Mukesh!!!

    I wish I had the foresight to have made you sing the day we met!! It totally slipped my mind! My bad! ;)

    • February 24, 2010 11:34 am

      :P :P :P you missed your oppurtunity of life time !!!!! :P :P he he…

    • February 24, 2010 11:54 am

      Ur stars were shining on u that day .. be happy :P

  18. February 24, 2010 9:43 am

    I think you need to upload an audio clip of you singing Kahin door jab din dhal jaye…..let us judge for ourselves whether you should have hugged that guy or not. Either he was right, or else, Vimmuuu is! :-)


    Quirky Indian

    • February 24, 2010 11:34 am

      Now the elusive celebrity is demanding me sing !!!!!!!!! :P :P :lol:

    February 24, 2010 10:05 am

    On point 1 , yeah true , it happened to me , fell in love after parents found the guy :)
    On pont 3 , ofcourse you should have :D Some strangers are remembered for life :)

    • February 24, 2010 11:36 am

      point 1 not true :P :P just some faltu ka gyaan ! :P

      sigh…. ! Its ok… no no… its seriously ok !!!!! :P :P

  20. February 24, 2010 10:20 am

    Count me on the pressing request from all of us here for an audio clip with you singing :D :D

    Loved the sound logic of Mrs. Hitchwriter :) I agree a fair bit with her on point 1

    Keep up the good work buddy :)


    • February 24, 2010 11:38 am

      One more !!!!!!! :D :D :D :D I am thrilled !!!!!! maybe I must find some means to record me !!!!

      I dont agree to that at all… :P :P

  21. February 24, 2010 10:38 am

    At the second one, to add, even poppins is packed in plastic these days..!!! i liked the feel of tearing it and then having it. But they have the paper cover also inside the plasic cover. Now they have paper and plastic together.

    • February 24, 2010 11:39 am

      aah… poppins also in plastic ?? ! thats bad.. but i remember eating it a while back and it was in paper.. not sure.. :P

      Polo atleast is in paper !!!! :P

  22. February 24, 2010 11:01 am

    Point 1 – Didnt u weigh ur options before falling in love or atleast before marriage – Dowry that went awry – Remember ???? We, the arranged married ones really fall in love and marry !!! Give me 5, Mrs.Hitchwriter !!! You are absolutely right !!! :)

    Point 2 – My point too – My fav Milk Bikis after the cover change, is indeed tasting different. But none agree with me. But why did Parle go to plastics ???? They couldv’e maintained the paper wrap and done a great promo on it !!!

    Point 3 – You didnt hug that guy then ???? Some proof for your Mukesh’s voice and you didn’t hug him ???

    • February 24, 2010 11:40 am

      yea yea… arrange marriage wala’s meet before weighing the family, income, qualification et all… eh :P :P :P :P

      I definitely believe the packing has led to a difference in the taste ! guess its not as crispy as bfore !

      I mean I always new it… :P :P

  23. February 24, 2010 11:48 am

    Mrs Hitchi has given very valid point. ;-) totally agree with her :lol:
    u singing like mukesh – Joke of the day :lol: :lol: :lol:

  25. February 24, 2010 12:28 pm

    Agree to the plastic bit… I never understood why they decided to change over to plastic from paper.

  26. February 24, 2010 2:19 pm

    The first one is awesome!!!! I agree with Mrs Hitchwriter :)

  27. February 24, 2010 3:13 pm

    Despite point number three, I still think Mrs. Hitchwriter is very very smart. She married you , after all :laugh:

  28. February 24, 2010 3:32 pm

    Awww….shoooo shweeeetttt….. is this the Bharuch effect :-))))

  29. February 24, 2010 4:08 pm

    Mrs. hitchy seems to have a point there about love/arranged marriages!! :D

  30. February 24, 2010 6:36 pm

    Can’t call, can’t email…. nose deep in work…commenting is quick…

    I saw Sachin hit his 200!!!!!!!!! clapped and jumped on office premises!!!! saw the electronic board dsiplay “Sachin Tendulkar the first to hit a 200 in ODI” and yelled!!

    and thought of you when i did all of that!!!!!!!!!!

    *sooper tight hugsssssssssssss* and congrats to hobbes, the crazy fan!!!!!!!!!!
    :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

  33. February 24, 2010 10:10 pm

    I am absolutey agree with Mrs.Hitchwriter for the first one..Parle G and Krackjack are trying to reinvent themselves..but i think their beauty lies in their old originality :-)

  34. Nids permalink
    February 24, 2010 10:13 pm

    I love Parle Ji and Krackjack, doesn’t matter if its in paper or plastic. And on the 3rd one, you should have definitely hugged that Guy…:)

  35. February 25, 2010 7:14 pm

    @ Mrs Hitchwriter…wow :D :D :D
    NO ONE ever said a truer word!!!!…

  36. February 26, 2010 5:00 pm

    damn lovely song hitchwriter :) you should have hugged

  37. February 26, 2010 6:05 pm

    LOL :lol: If not hug at least you could have given him a huge grin, I am sure if a stranger said you had a voice like Mukesh, it must be true.
    Not sure about love & arranged marriages and love before or after… but what Ms Hitchwriter says sounds kind of true to me.
    And not just biscuits, even magazines have started coming in plastic bags :( This is so avoidable.

  38. February 27, 2010 2:47 am

    @1) Your wife is wise :) Score 1 for all arranged marriages ;)
    @2) Time to write to Parle !
    @3) Really!!! We want to hear it too before arriving at a conclusion :)

    • March 1, 2010 4:41 pm

      writing to parle might actually work you know. I did write and got a call from them saying that they will be considering the options.

  39. March 1, 2010 4:40 pm

    regarding first point? Raam jaane :roll:

    I LOVE glucose biscuits. And I dislike the new plastic wrappers :(
    last point ? err..ummm..great post Dhiren :)
    Yeah great post!
    *runs away before Dhiren asks for explanation* :P

    PS:-seriously though like Vimmuuu you too can put up your song..let your friends decided if you really are *cough* Mukesh :P

  40. March 2, 2010 5:47 pm

    Its obvious Mrs. Hitchwriter is the more logical person in the family :-D

    And do u really sound like Mukhesh….I can decide only after I hear u singing “Ek din bik jaayega” :D

  41. March 2, 2010 5:48 pm

    Hitchwriter where r u???? Visited u in the confidence tht u wd have put up a sooper post on Sachin and his recent feat but reach here and find no atha-patha of u:-o

  42. March 2, 2010 8:12 pm

    Now…I’m actually getting curious about how you can sound like Mukesh. Why don’t you record an example and post it ;)

  43. March 3, 2010 5:19 am

    1) Interesting Dhiren. I will have to speak to wifey and hear it from her.
    2) I wouldn’t have a clue. I hardly ever eat anything whilst in india.
    Liquid only diet I believe and with the occational ice cream.
    3) Well I’ll hear you for myself to make my decision. :-)

  44. March 4, 2010 12:53 pm

    Good one..i believe mrs hitchwriter is right in first case :P

    Mukesh? Really? :-o ?? *errmmm…* sure thing, if you say so :P!!!

  50. March 9, 2010 10:19 pm

  51. March 16, 2010 8:15 am
