When you travel to the hills, when it gets freezing cold, when your hands refuse to come out of your pockets unless you want to use them for holding a tea cup, when your nose is frozen and you keep gasping for breath and keep shivering one thing that suddenly improves is your sense of humour !!!
some snippets suddenly jump out and they are so much fun… a couple of the most popular one liner’s that I’d like to share with you guys during our trip….
1.) Nahate woh log hai…. jo gande hote hai… ! (to be spoken in true Raj Kumar accent for ace effect !!! )
2.) Jab junglo mein rehna hai… to jungliyo ki tarah hi raho… ! (to be spoken in true Punjabi Accent for max effect )
3.) Arrey… yeh makhiya kaha se aa gayi…. Abhi do din pehle hi to nahaye the… ! ( must be spoken softly as if mumbling to yourself ! )
this one is a question followed by a one line reply by one guy who was absolutely wabsolutely drunk and had lost his senses… well that was what we thought, but one thing about alchohol… it may make you lose your senses, it doesnt let you lose your wit !!!!!
The Sober Guy : Aapki Age kya ho gayi… ?
The witty Drunk Guy : 40 !
The Sober Guy : To phir kya vichar hai… Shaadi Waadi nahi karni ??
The witty Drunk Guy : O.. Ji… mujhe… hain na… pause… main… hain na…. mujhe shaanti bahot pasand hai… isliye… hai na… main ladaai jhagde se door hi rehta hooon… !! :O
Frankly, for a second, I didnt get the joke… and then I was Guffawing like crazy !!!!!
PART – I
Nothing can compare with the joy you can experience on a hot summer evening after a boiling noon when you are out with the garden hose, sprinkling water around the compound and the house to cool things down and your son and you jostle for the hose and then end up bathing each other in the lawn!!!!!
Totally Refreshing I say !!!! You got a better idea to beat the heat ??!!!
When we were kids and when our Mom bought this house we were most unhappy with my mom’s decision that she bought a house in an area that was full of tree’s ! I mean how do you fly kites if your house is surrounded by trees !!!! That was all we expected from a house back then… a terrace from where you could fly kites !!!!
Thanks to the trees and the greenery our house surroundings are certainly cooler than the rest of the city and it is the evny of all now !!!!
Recently I read a status message of tara about birds chirping in her balcony and I sent her a message which didnt reach… but Tara… seriously you have an open invitation to my house… in the morning you must come to my verandah for tea and hear the squirrels and the birds its to be heard to be believed !!!!! Seriously… infact since the last few days I am trying to locate a Hoopoe because I am sure it is making a racket out there in the morning but I just cant spot it !!!! Morning tea at home on the swing in the verandah with the cool breeze, chattering squirrels and chirping birds is absolutely most rejuvenating and I cant thank my Mom enough for choosing a house in such environs !
Now I am planning to put some bird feeders and artificial nests on the walls of the house so that they can come and reside… hope to have a colony of birds by this Diwali !!!!!! Pictures will be coming soon !!!!
and then PART – II
Nothing can compare with the treachery of a female who has realised that even though she exercises most dedicatedly and avoids sweets, oiled food and all unhealthy treats most honestly can not reduce enough weight compared to her husband who cycles irregularly and has no diet plan and eats all and sundry suddenly finds his trousers loose !!!!!
The treachery of the woman becomes evident when she keeps shoving the bottle of cream biscuits or chikki’s while her husband is watching cricket !!!!
Like they say… You cant have everything in life After ALL !!!!

Well no point in telling you how much I love cricket, you all know it ! But this is different… I actually did something a cricketer should never do… but before I tell you what I did and what transpired, I must tell you this infamous cricket story…
Whenever you ask a cricketer about the Underarm, Immediately the image of Greg Chappell comes to your mind… The silly and totally disgraceful skipper of Australia instructed his brother Trevor Chappell to bowl the last delivery to be bowled under arm when New Zealand to win the third final needed 7 to win of the last ball !!!! Imagine 7 to win of the last ball !!!
This is what happened….
Even the wicketkeeper Rodney Marsh immediately said NO and shook his head… but alas !!!
Whilst my favourite commentator Bill Lawry wasnt as scathing in his remarks about this incident while he was on air… you must just see how angry Richie Benaud is !!!! I have never seen Richie lose his temper… and it goes without saying he is another one of my most admired cricketer, cricket captain and commentator. Just check Richie out in this video :
Even the guy whose advice I blindly follow when it comes to cricket judgement and the best Cricket Captain ever Ian Chappell had this to say about the underarm incident which involved his brother :
“Fair dinkum, Greg, how much pride do you sacrifice to win $35,000?”
persuaded by lil devils….
decided to go Underarm….
and the result….
with a heavy heart
This is what you get when you dont listen to Icons….
I Here by swear !!!!
Never to UNDERARM again !
