Shubho Bijoya

The time of the year when I miss all the mishti and the homemade radhaballavi and narkol chhapa. Sigh. Maybe next year :)

A man, a plan, a ponytail...

Yes, yes, if you have been following the Desi blogosphere at all you have heard of Mr Ponytail himself. He who counts his chickens before they hatch and so on! You can read the whole story here and here.
My take on this though is a little different. I feel really sorry for the students at IIPM, especially the current ones. Is there a single firm thats going to hire them now? Multinationals are going to think twice before they hire someone who is so willing to take the law into their own hands. Oh and try getting a job from any IIM person - the IIPM Vs. blogs story is all over the IIM alumni mailing lists. The sad part is that the students get the shaft, whereas most of them were probably not guilty of anything but being gullible.

Uh a tag or two...

So dear Vish has tagged me and pestered me to post. Well and so I shall!
The 5th line from my 23rd post is
There is not even the pretence of a public transportation system, or at least not in the westside where I was planning to live.
Hmm not very exciting or earth-shattering... It does remind me though that I drive a lot better these days (cross my fingers) and I don't really have to drive except for groceries and stuff any more and what a relief that is!!
I also have a 55-word story, surprise surprise!

It was a dark and stormy night. She sank deeper into her pale green comforter. "He won't be coming tonight", she told herself as she switched off the lamp and nodded off to sleep. He was asleep too, as the truck ploughed into the side of his car meandering on the wrong side of the highway.

Eh, I cheated - its not exactly 55 words and I had already done this at the spur of a moment for my writing group email thingy previously... So bite me!

In other news, I have learned to make Pad Ka Prow and my life is fulfilled, which is why minor things like blogs and posts do not interest me anymore :)

Also, I tag Priya!
