Check out the invite I got. I thought the role this lady plays – elegant and upscale social events for single Ladies and Gentlemen in Metro Atlanta – was pretty intriguing. I blurred the picture and redacted some of the info to maintain privacy.
But I have noted down the names of the 11 friends that I have who are connected to her. I have a few interesting phone calls to make today 🙂 🙂
This is in the lounge in domestic terminal of Kolkata airport.
I asked one of the young guys working in the lounge “Ei, etar maaney ki?” (What does this mean?)
The poor lad looked at the label, measured me up and said “Aamio ingraji bhalo bujhi na Sir”!! He pleaded his English was as weak as mine! But nonetheless, he addressed me as “Sir”.
Mightily amused, I returned to my table with a resolution that from now on, it is going to be only factory made potatoes for me !!!
Good start to this morning…
… what I am moved by is not the fact that dogs keep marking their territory by peeing every twenty yards or so, but by the fact that they have enough foresight and bladder control to keep enough in reserve to keep doing so …
If I were to follow the same methodology, unfortunately, my kingdom would be a single, modest size blob on the ground 🙂
Laying down in bed, I made the mistake last night of checking Whatsapp. Sure enough, all the different groups were engaged in all sorts of political fights. One group – I think it was my MBA class group – or might be my engineering college hostel (dorm) group – was engaged in a discussion (I use the word mildly) about job creation in India under their favorite party’s rule.
Ever the sucker for factoids, I thought I should get a picture of what has been India’s overall job growth over a longer period of time – say two to three decades. So, I punched in “job growth in India” into Google search on my phone and this is what I got in my very first page results…
You cannot make these things up!! The articles by the same website were barely 20 days apart!!
I did the mental math. I had only two glasses of wine last night. So, it was not me.
I just put the phone back on the charger and went off to sleep.
