Sorry Bob

He loved wedding lunches, and was disappointed when work kept him away from one, especially since all his friends would make it. But that was nothing compared to his bemusement, when a casual enquiry on how it went got this Bob Dylan response from his friend ‘the answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind’

until next time, fart attack

An Affair to remember

Their relationship started during his post graduation days, but like many relationships, it seemed it couldn’t stand the test of time. He felt he hadn’t changed, but she had. These days, she entertained far too many people for him to feel special in the relationship. And that is how his love affair with Goa ended.

until next time, they're still friends :)

Having F1

It was the first race of the season. The racecars were moving at such speeds that they seemed to fly. But at the first curve, one of the cars literally flew off the track. When he saw the name on the tail, he wasn’t surprised;it wasn’t the first time he’d seen a Kingfisher fly.

until next time, forcing India :(

Broadening Horizons

There was something different about this post. It wasn’t visible to the naked eye, but it was there. Even if you hadn’t noticed it before, you’d have started thinking about it now. Don’t fret, actually there is nothing phenomenally different, except this is the first post from the home laptop and the new broadband connection.

until next time, going surfing :)

They said it’d be painless. A few of his friends that is, who’d gone through it recently, but he always thought there’d be some trauma, more emotional than physical. And so it was, that he woke up on the fateful day, and felt an overwhelming emotion, which made him say “Ouch, did I hit 30?”

until next time, happy?

For reasons unexplained

She called first. Then many like her. He hung up rudely. They kept calling, forcing him to ponder. Maybe they called for a reason, maybe they’d data on him, maybe they knew something he didn’t. So, when she called next, he asked earnestly ‘Why do I need a personal loan’. This time she hung up.

until next time, call waiting

He: Sigh, we have company
She: I hope they don’t create problems for us
He: yeah, we had trouble the last time
She: I’m telling you, I won’t tolerate any shit
And they flew off, leaving me and D to wonder if we’ll be looking at pigeon shit in the clothes we left for drying.

until next time, pigeons!!!

Wild things

They set out early in the morning, with the cameras ready. As the boat moved silently in the morning, they waitedwith bated breath for the sightings and the stories they could share. The excitement changed to hope and lasted till five minutes before the tour ended. Quite obviously, someone forgot to tell the animals.

until next time, jungle talk

Turn Turn Turn

Relationships. Hugs and backslaps give way to handshakes and then smiles. Swearwords give way to way to polite greetings and then a ‘Hi’. Long chats give way to short conversations to scraps on orkut and then to nothingness. Maybe that’s the way life is, but maybe its also time, place, context and things unexplainable. Fade.

until next time, we say 'it depends' :)
