The worst observer, ME!

“You have observed nothing, Chandrika. You have applied for this post last year and what have you observed since then? NOTHING!!” A senior person of the company discouraged me while interviewing. The other two young persons seemed to be impressed with my work.
Ya, may be I have not observed up to his expectations. As I is a keen observer how can I miss to see that senior person opened the container of Pan Parag, put some in his mouth while speaking. “You are the worst observer I have ever seen in my life!”

Do you think one can chew tobacco in office or is it prohibited?

Calm mind

“Close your eyes and try to visualise the best scene you have ever seen in your life which calms your mind.” A saint asked the group.
I closed my eyes to concentrate.
“Open your eyes and tell me what do you see?” Two minutes later, he asked me.
“I saw a large channel which I used to cross while going to school in my childhood days. There is a huge harsingar tree (Nyctanthes arbor-tristis) on one of its side near the bridge. During blossom most of its tiny white flowers with orange-red tube fall in the channel and floats with the swift flow of water. I collected those tiny flowers which were not lucky enough to fall in soothing water and fall on hard ground".

If you close your eyes which beautiful scene you imagine that calm mind?

Seasoned writers

"Generally, seasoned writers turned their real life fiascos into fiction." Mrs. 'G' said.

So guys, what do you think my posts on this blog are my real life fiascos or fiction?

Dream Interpretation

“I saw my boyfriend dressed totally in black color. His face was powdered with black color. He was laughing uncontrollably. I told him that he looked like a ghost. I woke up sweating.” A girl of marriageable age told me.

“Strange dream!” I said.

“I can’t understand what this strange dream means?!? Interpret for me what this means as Chandrika, you have read lots of books on dream interpretation. I only know that I really love him and desperately want to marry him” She looked at me with curious eyes.

Should I tell her that this dream indicates that her marriage with him will not be possible or should I tell her that forget it as it is just a dream not reality?

Blog for WHAT?

“Hell, I can’t make money out of damn blogging.” Mr. ‘L’ uttered disappointingly.

Dear blogger friends, do you blog for yourself or for money?

TV antennae

“Why have you put the hanger in the balcony like this?” I asked a kid.
“Yesterday we bought a new TV. This is TV antennae. It catches signal and transfer them to TV.” He replied with overwhelming confidence.

Do you think this juggad works or is it to keep the child busy till dish is installed?

Khichadi - my all time favourite

“What have you cooked today?” Mr. ‘H’ asked me as aroma enters his nostril. We were sitting in the drawing room to which kitchen was adjacent to.
“Nothing special.” I replied.
“It smells tremendous good. What have you prepared in the dinner?”
“Just normal food.” I hesitated to tell.
“What na?” He insisted.
“Ya, it is my all time favourite and is also known as hotchpotch, a mixture of boiled pulses, rice and salt.”
“Whenever I prepared it never smells so good. HOW does it smell excellent?”

Does anyone know the answer to this question?

Relaxing game!

“Enough of work! Let’s play a game.” Mr. ‘H’ suggested.
“Game?!? I have to work. Lots of work is yet to be done.” I said.
“It is game to relax mind. After playing it you will be able to work better.” He took a white paper to draw a star with ten points. He put the nine coins on each point mentioned except on No.8. “You have to remove a coin by jumping another coin over it along one of the lines. The position you jump to, beyond the coin, must be empty.”
“That’s tricky!”
“You have to remove all but one of the coins from the star.”
“Any clue how to begin?”
“Coin at position No. 5 jumps No.7 which I remove and rests at No.8. There is one more condition especially for you that you can’t take the help of your blogger friends.”

Do you think it is an easy game and I did it before publishing or it is a difficult game and I genuinely need my blogger friend’s help?

Body tremors

“Earthquake is coming! Can you feel it?” I asked Mr. ‘H’.
“If you won’t take your lunch till 6pm you will for sure feel body tremors.” He replied.
“Earthquake is still there I can feel the tremors.”
“If you keep working all the day without taking meal at proper time, you will feel earthquakes of even higher intensity then what you are felling now. Why don’t you take the meal at proper hour?”

My favourite dish

“We are organising a party. Come and join us!” Mr. ‘H’ said.
“I do not like to go to parties.” I replied.
“I will ask the chief chef to prepare your favourite dish as main dish. Now you must join us.”
“If my favourite dish is served in the party as main dish then nobody will enjoy.”

Can anyone guess which my favourite dish is that is not relished by masses?

P(R)AN Application form

“This form is to be filled with black ink and not in blue as you have done.” Going through the application form holding in his hand Mr. ‘K’ said.
“It is written no where on the form.” I said.
“PAN form is to be filled in BLACK ink only. You have to fill it again.”
“I fill a PRAN application form not PAN. I want a Permanent Retirement Account Number rather Permanent Account Number.” I said.
“Ohho! For that you can fill in it with any ink.”

Do you think he needs specks which correctly show letter ‘R’ in between ‘P’ and ‘A’ to him only? ;)

Halt in traffic jam

“A few rain showers create pools and potholes on roads. One is halted in traffic jam whichever road one takes to the destination. It is irritating as well as frustrating because one is going nothing, a total wastage of time!” I said.
“You can honk to irritate others! Why to be frustrated alone?” Mr. ‘H’ said with a little wink.

“Papa, you should shave!” A little girl said to his father as she touched his face by mistake while swimming on Sunday evening.
“What is the use of that, my child?” He calmly asked.
“You will be soft SOFT!”

Does this story bring smile on your soft face? ;)

Thank You!

Jack left this comment on the previous post.
Finally caught up with all pending posts since 12 Aug and left comments on each. Read if you have time and patience.

My reply :
Thanks Jack for patiently reading all my posts and leaving comments on them. I always spare time to read the views, suggestions and criticisms of my readers. It is just that I am bit lazy or bit busy or both so as to I do not reply to each and every comment personally. I apologise for that.

Do the readers think that writing ‘Thank you’ to each comment makes the content on the blog boring or it must be done as a polite etiquette?

Pornography is a complete LIE!

Do you agree or disagree with her?

Wall hanging

“See, what my best friend ‘P’ has made for me!” A kid excitedly pointed towards a wall hanging.
“Has she returned from Canada?” I asked.
“No! His father visited us yesterday. She sent it with him. She prepared it herself especially for me.”

“Nice! But this is wrong side of it. You should put it like this.” I turned the wall hanging.
“This is not the right side as you can easily see joints.” He turned it again.
“It looks more beautiful and unique from the other side.”

According to you which is the right side of the wall hanging; pic1 or pic2?

Tired me!

I was trying to sleep in my room after a hectic day which includes fifteen hours of travelling by road, I felt as if my bed was vibrating. Oh God! I am soooo tired that even bed seems to be in movement as a result of prolonged shaking of body in travelling! Uneasy me turned, changed my position and tried to sleep again. No more shaking was felt and sleep embraced me.

Next morning the main news of newspaper is ‘Earthquake shook Delhi and NCR for 5-6 seconds at 11.58pm.’

Sometimes are you also so much tired that even quakes seem to be a part of your tiredness? ;)
