Can one tell about a person by the kind of jokes he/she likes? Following is one kind I like:

A group of organic molecules were having a party, when a group of robbers broke into the room and stole all of the guests joules. A tall,strong man, armed with a machine gun came into the room and killed the robbers one by one.The guests were very grateful to this man, and they wanted to know who he was. He replied: My name is BOND, Covalent Bond.

I tag Indrajit and Mukul.

Monday, September 26, 2005


I have been tagged by themanwhowrote. I am not sure whether he tagged me physically or biochemically. This tagging movement on blogs spreads rapidly, across continents. Last time it was books and readings. This one is getting more personal. Answers marked with a asterik(*), are efforts to answer as genuinely as possible, hiding some private facts. These facts can be discussed in a more appropriate forum, at an appropriate time.

5 Favourite toys:
My Nokia 3350 - mobile-cum-hammer, it has some features which were not there in many of the contemporary costly mobiles. Bajaj M-80, with which I have had few memorable trips and adventures. This sane vehicle has at times carried 3 people without any complaint. Cooking gas stove: Plenty of times it has enabled me to cook Maggie and perform some experiments in cooking (thanks to all the living and other guinea pigs). My desktop of course, where I do all the work and write this blog. The Camlin comapss box I had in school, besides storing writing material, I would use it to play like drum.

5 Greatest Joys:
Italy wins any football match. It is a cloudy day. I am able to get into the local train. I meet an old friend at an unexpected place and time. Going for a long walk.

5 favourite TV shows(*):
Tom and Jerry show, Malgudi days, TWTW (The world this week) : The news were never like this before, Neev, and Byomkesh Bakshi.

5 things I would never wear in public(*):
lungi, sleeveless t-shirts, tight clothes, bright yellow trousers, transparent (Akbar Ilahabadi style) clothes.

5 places I would run away to:
$HOME, Mumbai, any beach, a hillstation, a horror movie show.

5 things I would do with $100 million(*):
buy a private jet; employ a pilot, and roam around to see the world.

5 Snacks:
Wada paav, Bhel, Thalipeeth, Chakli and shrikhand.

5 Bands I know all the words to:
while (true)
Please repeat the question;

I went for shopping and selected couple of shirts after going through 10s of shirts.

One year ago:
I was not writing blog and human kind was not getting to read some high quality reading material. I worked on IE and Bhindows.

Five years ago:
I was grappling with the first semester course work of my post graduation. It was first time that I was staying in hostel. I learnt to eat anything, yes, anything which is served in the plate.

Ten years ago:
I was younger and was learning the art of getting into the 'Mumbai Local Trains'. I played lot of 'galli' cricket. Most of my time was spent doing nothing. Then there would be exams and I would rush.

Yesterday night we went for dinner with a bunch of foreigners. The host for the dinner was Chinese and a closely authentic chinese restaurent was the venue. However of all this, the element of of surprise was that the host ordered food for all. She knew the details of Vegetarian and non-Vegetraian eating habits. And our job was simple, we just kept eating the items that got place in the plates in front of us. The dishes were very diffrent, we had 5 starters to start with. We would have never ordered these kind any day. One of it was spinach fried with sesame seeds and some sugar. In all, it was a diffrent experience from the usual Indian Chinese food.

Never argue with a child

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it
was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even
though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little
girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher
reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically
impossible. The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah".
The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?" The little girl replied,"
Then you ask him".

The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to
persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture. "Just think how
nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say,' There's
Jennifer; she's a lawyer,' or 'that's Michael. He's a doctor.'"
A small voice at the back of the room rang out, "And there's the teacher.
She's dead."
A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood. Trying to
make the matter clearer, she said, "Now, class, if I stood on my head,
the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the
face." "Yes," the class said. "Then why is it that while I am standing
upright in the ordinary positions the blood doesn't run into my feet?"
A little fellow shouted, "Because your feet aren't empty."

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary
school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The
nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a
large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, "Take
all You want. God is watching the apples!"


You are having good luck when you are standing in a queue and people ahead of you just move out of the queue, saving your precious time.
