One day I will also die!

One day I will  also die
I don't know how that would be.

It might be an accident; a peaceful one in sleep; a murder or a natural disaster
I don't know how that would be

When my body is laid to rest, would I look handsome?
I don't know how I would look.

Some may cry; Some may be happy; many might not even know that I am gone
I don't know how that would be

My loved ones might be around my body; They would be talking about me; Many would lie and say all good things about me. At the same time there would be people who would say, "Good riddance"
I don't know how that would be

I have come across different people in my life. I have helped a few; I have been a pain for many. Have befriended many; Unfriended a few. Friends are many and foes are there too. But when I am gone, would I still leave a scar in your heart?

This post might be heavy; I am not the only one who is gonna die. You will die too. 

When you are alive, have you brought happiness to someone? That's the sole reason for the existence of  this blog. 

I am sure it would have made someone smile at some part of their lives. 

Some posts might not have had the humour touch.; but still I strive to make someone in some part of the world to forget their sadness and smile. If you are planning to do something today, do it today. Don't postpone it. Pick that phone and reconcile with that someone with whom you have not spoken.

Life is Short.
Keep Smiling.
Spread the Smiles.

Buffalo Dreams

My great great great grand father was a shepherd boy. He used to roam around the Southern part of the country with a herd of Buffaloes. 

When I was in class ten, my father would tell me that he would buy me some buffaloes and make me take care of them, if I scored low marks in exams. That thought would scare me and I would study well. 

But when I picture it now, I realize that it would have been fun. Imagine walking in the roads of Chennai in formal attire along with a Buffalo. Would not it be cool? 

My cousin sharmi thinks that owning a Labrador boosts his social status. She takes her huge dog for a walk in the evenings. She also has a huge Bull dog that actually looks like a Pig that rammed its face in a truck. Those dogs are her prized possession.  

If walking with huge dogs boosted her ego by making her think that she was in the elite club in the society, just imagine how it would have been if I were walking on the roads with a Buffalo. I would have made Sharmi feel so inferior that she would have start treating mongrels equally.

Some people's fart are so strong that when ever they fart the walls of the house start shaking. My friend Manoj  (name not changed) is an expert in the art of farting. He always farts out loud with DTS effect. His gaseous exploits are powerful than the sound released by a 500 CC Royal Enfield bike. 

The other day we were in a lift and he did what he does best and the make up of a girl in the lift fell off from her face. It came as a surprise to us because after the make up fell down, I could actually recognize her. I said Hi to her and we had lunch together. I should thank Manoj for that fartistic attack without which I would not have recognized Sheeba.

Today I met a girl in the lift and when she smiled at me, I did not recognize her. 

She: Hi Prabhu How are you?

Me: Excuse me! But do we know each other?

She : Man! I am Sheeba.

If only manoj had been there in the lift along with me, her make up would have fallen off and I would have recognized her. Sad, that he was not there in the lift. Sheeba's make up had a similar smell that was in our house when we painted our house.

How did I end up writing about Manoj in this post? It still beats me. I am yet to figure out how my thought process works. May be, Manoj's back and the Buffalo's back looked similar.

If you are thinking that I am insulting my friend Manoj in this post, you should realize that I am actually doing him a favour. He copies my blog posts and circulates it in our google groups as if he wrote it. He does not read any post.

So I am sure he would just read the headline and see the buffalo picture and would arrive at the conclusion that this blog is a funny post on buffaloes. Before he finds out that this is actually a tribute to him, it would be too late.

This is for him enjoy machan!

Yoga vs Vodka

Yoga is 1) an art form for some; 2) a meditation technique for a few others and 3) a way of life for many. 

Different forms of Yoga are being taught in many places around the globe.

Vodka on the other hand is a Potato flavoured juice which is mixed with a little bit of ethanol. 

Vodka is also 1) an art form for some; 2) a meditation technique for a few others and 3) a way of life for many.

This blog post will dig deep into the science behind these art forms and also come up with an analytical result of why one form is better than the other.

The Subject of the blog is a give away. You already know the answer. So I am gonna make it simple and easy for you. I will just tell the various reasons why Vodka is better than Yoga. 

Let us take a sample pose of both these art forms. From Yoga I have chosen HalasanaPose and from Vodka I chose KalpanaBales.

Halasana  - Is a pose where you have to lie on your back, place both palms facing the ground. Then you have lift your leg and place it on the ground as shown in the above picture.

Kalpana - Is a pose where you will first place your leg on the bench and drop your head to the floor with a thud sound

1) While performing Halasana you will be conscious of your surroundings. But while performing Kalpana you will be unconscious. 

2) You normally need a mat to perform Halasana. But to perform Kalpana, you do not need any mat. You can even perform this pose in a ditch.

3) Halasana is a basic level art form. Kalpana is challenging and more advanced level of art form

4) In the Yoga pose, only the shoulder muscles come into play. But in the Vodka pose, the shoulder, head, neck and even your groin muscles play a vital role.

5) While performing Yoga, you can't trust your farts. But you can always put your trust on Vodka because even if you fart out loud, you won't even know.

6) You need to learn Yoga from a tutor. But to perform Vodka, you don't need a tutor because Vodka by itself is a tutor. Vodka will make you an artist by bringing out the best in you even without your knowledge.

7) Some Yoga instructors will ask you to perform Yoga with a solemn music playing in the background. To perform Vodka, you don't need any music. Music will automatically start playing inside your head.

8) You don't get a head ache by performing Yoga. But on most ocassions you will have a hang over and a splitting headache after performing Vodka. This also means you give more employment opportunities to physicians. Vodka gives employment and earning opportunities to others in the society. 

These reasons are more than enough to prove that Vodka is better than Yoga on any given day.

வருந்தாதே பிரபு !

வருந்தாதே பிரபு
வாய்ப்பிழந்து போகவில்லை 

காலத்தின் ஒரு பகுதி
நீ கடந்திருப்பது

இன்று தெளிந்தாலும் 
நீ முழுமை நோக்கி
முதலடி வைக்கலாம் 

ஒரு வகையில் நீ புத்திசாலி
சந்தையில் சம்பாதித்தவர்க்கிடையில்
ஒரு சந்தையை சம்பாதித்தவன்

ஒரு நாள் குகைப்பிளவு
ஒரு நாள் மரக்கிளை 
ஒரு நாள் தின்னையில்
அடுத்தொரு நாள் மாளிகையில் 

அன்று உணர்வாய்
நீயல்லாத நீதான்

Can’t stand this chennai heat.

April 12 2014

Can’t stand this chennai heat. Last evening had good half-and-half bath in besant nagar beach. Well it wasn’t intentional. We just went to have our feets washed but the gushing water tempted us and swept us by our feet. But the bag hanging behind me didn’t allow to get drenched. As we were children we never had any such issues of carrying mobiles, credit cards, docs and such responsibilities. Wish we had a remote control to rewind our lives back to childhood.

Some Wisdom On A Saturday Afternoon

November 9 2013

I have so many thoughts that swirl in my head and my attempts at trying to swat at them sometimes means I get the less insightful ones come to the less blurry part of my brain.

So sometimes I will read something and I will think, "This. A million times this." 

And I feel like a hoarder for keeping it to myself, so here is some wisdom that I would like to share with you from someone who is not me. Because a lot of the time, people can just verbalize so much better what I am thinking.

For Anyone Who Needs It:

Let's just do whatever it takes, ok?

Everything's hard. Days are long. We're getting older. Friends are being diagnosed, family members torn apart by internal demons, Feature is on its way on every front, and we have no energy for the next task.

And especially this: we will all make mistakes.

None of this will ever change. How you look at it is the only thing that can.

You're welcome.

Hello November !

November 1 2013

Another weekend passed away. 

Guys, it's November. What the hell?! How is it November? How has ANOTHER year gone by? God, how I hate these stupid open-ended questions. 

I am just sometimes overwhelmed at how sometimes it feels like the days will never pass, and before I know, it's been months. 

I don't let things get to me as much as I used to. I don't take things or comments directed at me as seriously. And if I do, then I get over it fast. Like, super fast. Faster than Superman flying around the world. Okay, not that fast, but you get the picture. It's funny how it's always the hard times that make you a stronger person in life. It's only going to get better. 

And I know now that if it's not okay, then it's not the end. This is what keeps me going.

9. How old do you want to be when you get married? – you mean, again? As if I didn’t learn from one grave mistake !

10. How old will you be at your next birthday? – 18 yrs.

Ponderings On A Monday Night

November 07 2013

I logged onto Facebook since I visit my account about a month ago (or at least what feels like that long, maybe longer). The heart palpitations it gave me made me realize I am in no way ready to go back there yet for reasons I wish to remain untold.

I love my place. I love how at home I feel here. I love how anyone who comes into this space gets that same feeling. I love how it was in my head and my thoughts for so long and then !poof! here it is. I love how I still have a laundry list of things to do in here but that it's still perfect.

Working is pretty damn cool. No, I mean really cool. Do you realize how far a dollar can stretch when you are preparing your own money??

I met a cute girl on the lift. The elevator. She lives a few doors down from me. I think we're going to be friends. In the least. I'm looking forward to the doors that will open from my having met her. She seemed really nice and shy and geeky and just me. This prospect excites me. I can't get to know her soon enough.

Last pondering? Sleep head is sleepy. I'm going to go and remember to be grateful for all the good things in my life before my eyes retire for the night.

Mantra that my wife follows

August 14 2013

There was a time when I was asked to eat burnt offerings. There were days when I was given a papad to eat and then later told that it was a poori. There were days in which the sambhar had tasted like payasam. There were even days when the dosa tasted like Italian Pizzas.

Try, Try till you succeed விடா முயற்சி விஸ்வரூப வெற்றி (Vida muyarchi Viswarooba vetri) is a mantra that my wife follows. I had to write this post for two reasons . 

1) These days every meal is a treat to eat. ( This is today's lunch - mutton chops/chicken fry/mushroom gravy/chicken biriyani/rice/tomato rasam). 

2) In future, I want these treats to continue to happen.

Note : After this post, two things might happen
1) If the first paragraph of this post takes a deep impact, then I might be given burnt offertory once again

2) If the second paragraph wins the competition, then I am lucky.

3 Innocent Sadhus

August 06 2013

I always have a soft corner for Sadhus. As the name suggests, they are very soft people. They are kind hearted people who always stretch their hand and help those who are in need. They have a big heart and they are an asset to the nation. 

Sadhus are also the first people in the world to wear Sarees. Later the Indian women started copying from the Sadhus and have made saree a women wear. But the sadhus never fought for their rights; because they are good hearted people. 

Over the years , the Sadhus have always been targeted by media personalities. Sadhus are people who do not have a private life. They renounce everything and live like an open book. But still there are bad people who try to poke their nose in their private lives by place hidden cameras in their bathrooms and bedrooms.

What I am asking is "What is wrong in Sadhus having a jolly time?" Aren't they human beings too? For example, look at these wonderful Sadhus of the 21st century. See their faces.

When you take a closer look at their faces, you can see that they have a gentleman's look. They have a smiling face and they are as soft as a goat led to slaughter. Just because they look soft, should we make fun of them and take advantage of their soft outlook. Don't they also have feelings?

If they had done mistake, who are we to talk about that? They are people who have got special gifts. One person takes lingam out of his mouth. Another person makes frequent visits to heaven and another person can fly in the air. Can you and I do what they do? They are an asset to our country. So we should stop making fun of these three gentlemen.

Moral : I strictly order all my readers not to make fun of these three innocent Sadhus. If we ourselves do not stand for them, who will stand for them? How long will Malavika, Malliga and Ranjitha support them alone? Let us also join together and support these innocent Sadhus.

நன்றி -கடுகளவும் இல்லாத கலையுலகில் எம்.எஸ்.வி சந்திக்கும்முன் திங்கறதுக்கு சோறு இல்லை. சந்தித்த பின் சோறு திங்க நேரமில்லை... என்று சொல்லி  எம்.எஸ்.வி காலில் சாஷ்டாங்கமாய் விழுந்தார் வாலி.

அவரின்  மிக சிறந்த பாடல்களை சொல்ல ஆரம்பித்தால் சொல்லி கொண்டே போகலாம் ... இப்பொழுது என்னுள் தோன்றும் ஒரு சில முத்துக்கள்...

 பசும் தங்கம் , புது வெள்ளி , மாணிக்கம் , மணி வைரம் அவை யாவும் ஒரு தாய்க்கு ஈடாகுமா?

பாலூட்டும் அன்னை அவள் நடமாடும் தெய்வம் - அறிவூட்டும் தந்தை நல வழி காட்டும் தலைவன்.

 இது சொர்கமா ? நரகமா ? சொல்லடி உள்ளபடி ...நான் வாழ்வதும் விடை சொல்லி போவதும் உன் வார்த்தையில் உள்ளதடி.

தவறு என்பது தவறி செய்வது - தப்பு என்பது தெரிந்து செய்வது ...தவறு செய்தவன் திருந்த பார்க்கணும் - தப்பு செய்தவன் வருந்தி ஆகணும்.

பணம் காச கண்டுபுட்டா புலி கூட புல்ல தின்னும் - கலி காலம் ஆச்சுதடி கண்மணி ..வேப்பில்லை கருவேப்பில்லை அது யாரு நான்தானோ!.

பொருள் கொண்ட பேர்கள் மனம் கொண்டதில்லை , தரும் கைகள் தேடி பொருள் வந்ததில்லை ..மனம் என்ற கோவில் திறக்கின்ற நேரம் , தவறாமல் அங்கே தெய்வம் வந்து சேரும்.

பொய்யான சில பேர்க்கு புது நாகரிகம் ...புரியாத பல பேர்க்கு இது நாகரிகம் ..முறையாக வாழ்வோர்க்கு எது நாகரிகம் ? முன்னோர்கள் சொன்னார்கள் அது நாகரிகம்.

இன்று மாலை 5 மணி அளவில் சென்னையில் அவர் உயிர் பிரிந்தது ..அது தொடங்கி மேகங்களும் சென்னையில் விடாமல் அஞ்சலி செலுத்தி கொண்டே இருக்கின்றன..

வாழ்க இந்த வாலிபனின் புகழ்!

I'm not sinking. My head is definitely above water.

June 29 2013

Looking at my bank statement, I feel like the kid who ten years ago was still learning how to balance a budget that worked.


I figured that by now I'd have a lot more saved. Well, when I crunched numbers a few months back it seemed like I'd have a lot more saved. The fact is that I've been so used to seeing five digits in my savings account, I'm having a hard time only seeing a measly four. 

I guess I need to be more realistic with where my money is going. 

I managed to decrease my phone bill significantly, but I know I can do better. Once my contract is up, that will be the first thing to make a drastic cut. 

My home rent and electric bills are laughable. Those do not worry me in the least. Gas for my car does not stretch out as far as it could considering I like to joy ride a little too much.

Aside from a few more things that I want to get for my place, I don't anticipate spending a lot more money. 

I had to fork out much dough for my a special celebration for my nieces recently. On the bright side, I didn't have to technically take it from myself. 

Been picking up extra work on the side so that is helping the money flow as well. I'm very, very grateful for the opportunities that have been and continue to present themselves to me. I am definitely grasping at them when I see them coming. 

Bottom line: I need to set (and stick to dammit!) a realistic budget. My fixed expenses are going to be there no matter what ... I signed up for this. 

I guess I'm still learning how to tread through it. But, I'm not sinking. My head is definitely above water.

Psychologist and Lawyer in Library
A guy asks a girl in a library; Do you mind if I sit beside you?

The girl answered with a loud voice; I DON'T WANT TO SPEND THE NIGHT WITH YOU!.

All the students in the library started staring at the guy and he was embarrassed.

After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the guy's table and said, 'I study psychology and I know
what a man is thinking, I guess you felt embarrassed right?'

The guy responded with a loud voice: What??? $200 JUST FOR ONE NIGHT!? THAT'S TOO MUCH!
...And now all the people in the library looked at the girl in shock.

Then, the guy whispered in her ears, 'I study Law and I know how to make others feel guilty'.

இன்று தான்  சிவாஜி ராவ் கெய்க்வாட் ரஜினிகாந்த்தாக  மாறிய நாள்.

ரஜினி நல்ல நடிகரா? ரஜினி மோசமான நடிகரா? ரஜினி நல்ல மனிதனா? ரஜினி கெட்ட மனிதனா? ரஜினிக்கு அரசியல் ஆசை இருக்கிறதா? ரஜினிக்கு அரசியல் ஆசை  இல்லையா? ரஜனி பழைய தலைமுறையா? ரஜினி புதிய தலைமுறையா? ரஜினி லேட்டா? ரஜினி லேட்டஸ்டா?

நீங்கள் இதில் எந்தக் கேள்வியைக் கேட்டாலும் என் பதில் ஆம் என்பதுதான். ரஜினி என்கிற பலமான பிரமாண்ட பிம்பத்தை இரசிக்கிறவர்கள், அவருடைய முரண்பாடுகள் மிக்க நிஜ வாழ்வையும் ஏற்றுக் கொள்கிறார்கள் என்பதுதான் விசித்திரம்.

பாபாவின் தோல்வியும், எந்திரனின் வெற்றியும் ஒரே அளவு பரபரப்பாகிறது. புகை, குடி என்ற அவரின் குறையும், ஆன்மீகம், யோகா என்ற ஒழுக்கமும், ஒரே விகிதத்தில் ஏற்கப்படுகிறது.

பலமும் பலவீனமும் கலந்த அவர், முரண்பாடுகளின் மூட்டை. ஆனாலும் அவரைப் பிடிப்பவர்களின் எண்ணிக்கை அதிகரித்துக் கொண்டே இருக்கிறது. சுட்டி டிவி குழந்தைகள் முதல் என்டிடிவி பெரிசுகள் வரை, எல்லோரையும் ஈர்க்கிறார்.

ஏன் என்று காரணம் தேடுவதை விட, இரசிப்பது எளிதாக இருக்கிறது. அதனால் தான் நான் ரஜினி இரசிகனாக இருக்கிறேன்.

Why guys like me hate shopping

March 21 2013

You might disagree with the title of the post saying that many guys love to shop. Yes , that's there too. But I have decided to write an article on this topic. So shut up and read or just leave.

Twenty years ago

“Prabhu go to the grocery shop and buy some eggs”- mom would tell these words every now and then when I was a small boy. Why would she ask me to go to the grocery store especially when I am watching my favourite show on TV or when I am playing in the ground with my friends?

“Why don’t you go to the store and buy the eggs? "

Mom would immediately say that the neighbourhood is not a safe place for girls to go alone and shop. Finally I would be forced to go to the shop to buy eggs. I would run to the shop as fast as I could with hopes of coming back home just in time to watch the rest of my favourite program on TV. But when I finally reach the shop, there would be a long queue already waiting for their turn. After tackling some of them and by jumping the line, I finally would succeed in buying eggs. I would scamper as fast as I could and reach home only to find that my favourite show has just ended. To add salt to the injury, my mom would start screaming because 8 out of the 12 eggs would have cracked.  At that moment, I would go through the same emotions that Rohit Sharma goes through for not getting selected in the squad and even when selected being at the receiving end of all Rohit Sharma jokes. This is the moment I started hating the word called  “SHOPPING”.
Ten Years ago

My phone would ring. If it is from a girl, I would have mixed feelings. I would be happy to know that a girl has thought about me to call me on my mobile phone. At the same time, I would be scared of one thing. I would be scared for the following reasons

1) Prabhu, Can you please top up my mobile phone by Rs 100 ?

Why would some one want me to top up their mobile phones using my one month pocket money? I would think again and again. But girls have a power in their voices. Some times I would say No. Some times their voice would melt me. Most of the time , they knew how to melt me

2) Prabhu, Can you drop me in the shopping complex?

It would feel so good to give a lift to one of your girlfriends to the shopping complex. But it would also mean that you would have to hit petrol for your bike (using the pocket money your dad gives) and ten out of ten times you would have to wait for them and pick them back to their home. Sometimes you might mistake such outings for a date. But they are not. You would have to wait for the girl and sometimes you would have to accompany them to the coffee shop and end up paying the bill (using the pocket money your dad gives). Finally after dropping the girl back at the home. you would also get a sms  " I had a very nice time today ... Muaaah :* ". You would preserve this sms for months and would delete it from your inbox only when you see her going on a bike with someone else. That is when you feel sorry for him. Yes! I have been there.

3) Prabhu, Can you buy that notebook for me? I have curfew in home.

They would not have curfew in home when they go out for those dinners and shopping. But when they need some trivial stuff, they would say that they have curfew in home.

4) Pepsiiiiiiiii Sweetheart ( sweet girly tone), Can you pls plis pleasee take me to the new mall that is opening today?

Who would say no to that voice?


After gaining years and years of experience. of dealing with internal pressures (home) and external pressures ( girlfriends), I have now come to a point where I now have a grip of the whole idea of shopping. These days my wife does all the shopping. The online shopping portals come to a great help (Nogama Nongu Saapdalaam). All you have to do is sit in front of the computer and buy all the products you need. We would  go online and do any kind of transaction with ease. But one thing that reminds of my bad shopping past is  when I try booking a ticket in IRCTC.

Living with her

Augest 4 2015

How would it feel when

1) Some One waits for you even till midnight to have dinner with you ?

2) Some One serves you bed coffee ?

3) Some One makes sure that while you sneeze in your sleep the speed of the fan is reduced ?

4) Some One makes your wardrobe look very much organized ?

5) Some One irons and keeps your clothes ready on the bed so that you can wear it after your bath ?

6) Some One wakes up early in the morning just for making breakfast and lunch for you and makes them ready even before you get up from the bed ?

7) Some One puts up with all your craziness and just admires you for that

8) Some One makes it sure that you don't lack anything ?
These questions sound so filmy right? Well, I know of a certain someone  who does all these things and I am living with her for the last 2 years. Yes, Kavi and I have lived together for 2 years

Namitha's revenge!

February 10 2013

Dengue is caused by mosquitoes. For those who read my blog regularly, I am gonna reveal a secret now. I had a pet mosquito called Namitha. She was the creator of the deadly disease Dengue. Dengue is the Insect version of Bird flu. 

How the Dengue disease spread?

Namitha was rescued by me when I found her in a pool of blood. Apparently she had tried to bite my friend who in turn attacked her with his palms. I took her from the pool of blood, applied dettol on her wounds, and nursed her and she was back to normal within a week. As Namitha was a glamorous mosquito, all the romeo mosquitoes tried to woo her. But she had loads of attitude and she never fell for any guy. Even though she tried her level best to stay away from guys, the male mosquitoes in our locality tried different stunts to get the attention of Namitha. 

Show Rock Khan was one such mosquito. He was the only mosquito with six packs. Though he was old, he  was from Africa and legend has a belief that Indian girl mosquitoes liked African Male mosquitoes. Namitha was drawn towards Show Rock Khan. I found that they were in love when I saw them coochy cooching near the window in my house. I warned Namitha and told her not to trust all guys and I also told her that all guys were after her body. But she was blinded by her love for Show Rock Khan.

One day Namitha decided to elope with Show Rock Khan. I over heard their conversation. Yes it is wrong to eavesdrop. But I was possessive about Namitha and I did not want Show Rock to misuse her innocence. They had planned to fly away from my house in the night after I switch off the light. Namitha had the habit of whispering sweet nothings in my ears every night with a koiiiiiiinnnnnggggg sound. Once she does that, I would go to sleep. That night she decided to elope after singing in my ears. I knew that was the last koiiiiinnnnnnggggg sound that I am gonna hear from her. It was heart breaking for me. I tried to control my tears, but I failed.

[Read this line with an emotional music in the background. Please add some tear drops to your eyes to prove to others that you are involved in the story. If tears refuse to come, sprinkle some chilly powder on your eyes, cos you will have to cry more and more ]

Namitha flew away with Show rock khan. He did not marry her; but gave her 324 babies. He deserted her and started living with another mosquito. Namitha found it difficult to take care of the babies. She also decided to take revenge on all the male mosquitoes. She went on a killing spree and she hired the ranguski mosquito (The mosquito which acted in the movie Robot). Along with Ranguski mosquito, Namitha went on a killing spree. She became very notorious and she became the poolan devi of the mosquito world.  In the mean time Namitha showed symptoms of a dreaded disease that was never heard of before. The disease was so bad that it even had the power to kill human beings. Later human beings gave a name to that disease and called it Dengue.

Namitha died in the early hours of a sunday morning near my pillow. She came back to me and she took a vow never to bite me (The only guy she trusted in her life). I miss that koinnnnnnnngggg sound these days. Many other mosquitoes still sing in my ears. You would have heard that koinnnnngggggg sound too. But none of these voices can be compared to that honey melting voice that Namitha had.

Today when ever I kill a mosquito with a mosquito bat, I always remember Namitha. She never ever bit me. If only all the mosquitoes were like Namitha, the world would be a better place to live in.
Note : The mosquito bat is the greatest ever discovery of the 21st century

திருட்டு மாங்கா (Stolen Mango)

February 09 2013

திருட்டு மாங்கா (Stolen Mango) is one of the tastiest fruits in the world. It tastes better than the normal mangoes. Even if you have a mango tree in your house, the mangoes in that tree stand no chance to the mangoes that are stolen from the neighbor's house.

When I was a kid, I used to wait for the summer season. That's the season the mangoes will dangle on all the mango trees. There are two ways to steal mangoes

1) Climb the mango tree and pluck the mangoes
2) Throw stones at the mangoes and pick them from the ground
Let us analyse these two methods

1) Climb the mango tree and pluck the mangoes

You should have a very good idea about the physical structure of the tree. You should also be a good climber. Once you climb the tree, there is no looking back. If the neighbor has a dog, make sure that the dog is sleeping. If the dog is awake, then the dog should be your friend. Otherwise, you are in big trouble. Make sure that you are wearing an appropriate dress while climbing the tree. If you are wearing a lungi or a skirt (In the case of you being a girl) there are chances of you giving a heart attack to the neighbor if he catches you in the act. In this method, the mangoes do not go through torture. This kind of plucking a mango is very similar to catching fish using a net.

 2) Throw stones at the mangoes and pick them from the ground

You should have a good aim. If the tree has lots and lots of mangoes, you don't have to worry about your aim. All you have to do is throw a stone at a bunch of mangoes. Make sure that there are no glass windows near the mango tree. If there are glass windows, it is better to use the first method unless and until you have a great aim. This method comes handy when you have a partner in crime. One can throw the stone and the other can retrieve the mango. The retriever should be good in running, climbing walls. If the neighbor has a dog, the retriever should be as fast as Ussain Bolt. This method of stealing a mango is like catching a fish using a fishing rod. The mango will go through great deal of pain. The mango will actually look like a heroine without make up.

After you get the mango, you can just bite it and eat it. Otherwise, you can hit the mango on a stone and burst it open and eat it. If you have the patience, you can use a knife to cut the mango into pieces. Add a pinch of salt and chilly powder and taste the mango. It would taste amazing.

Disclaimer : Stealing is a crime.
If tobacco companies can come up with such a disclaimer, why can't I ?
