In a bar, I saw that on a table a couple was sitting; husband was sipping beer and wife was neither drinking tea, coffee, soft drink, fruit juice or lime water rather she was slowly sipping plain water not even packed mineral water.

Do you think this is discrimination against woman or no?

New additions in my room

“Wow! Bird’s nests with little birds!!” A kid exclaimed on seeing the new additions in my room.
“I bought them from the Trade Fair, Delhi. They are made up of coconut coir.” I said.
“What are their names?”
“I am thinking of naming them but haven’t taken any final decision. You suggest some.”
“You can name them ‘Orange’ and ‘Blue’ as their colors are.”
“That’s too simple. Some thing unique, I was thinking of….like…”
Before I could say anything he uttered “‘Burger’ and ‘Pizza’! My all time favourite!!”

What do you think which one should I name ‘Burger’ and which one ‘Pizza’?” ;)

Write for …?

“First ask yourself for what you write for ‘MONEY’ or ‘SELFSATISFACTION’?” Mr. ‘J’ asked me.
“I write for comments. More comments motivate me to write more!” I replied. :)

And you write for what?

Kolaveri Di

Kolaveri Di, a Tamil song with some English words here and there, sounding witty with catchy beats is a record breaking spree. I don’t understand Tamil still I am humming it. Can you believe it I have listened it atleast 37 times?” I excitedly said. “It seems that I am crazy about its tunes.”
“Yesterday I heard it 174 times and today my target is to break my own record.’ Mr. ‘H’ said.

How many times you have heard this song?

Lights! Lights!!

As the chief guest entered the conference hall the lights went out. There was complete darkness till the electricity came back after a few seconds.

If I was not the chief guest of that function do you think it was funny or irritating? ;)

Cow up!

“What is in this basket? Fruits?” In the lift which was moving down a guy asked me pointing towards the basket I was holding.
“No. It contains food for the cow. Daily I give food to the cow before taking my meal.” I replied.
“Cow up!” Innocently he asked.
“If cow up in my flat then I would have been carrying cow dung in the basket and not food.” I thought. “It's smell would have stunk.”

Do you think he just wished to time pass in the lift by asking this or he was really curious to know what the basket contain?

Parrot on my finger...

“Do you see my photo on facebook?” I enquired a kid.
“Which one?” He asked.
“The latest one with the parrot on my finger!”
“Oh! That one with a fake parrot, made up of clay.”
“No! NO! That was real. A real parrot on my finger!”
“You can’t fool me after all I am a grown up man.” He said confidently.

Do you think I was telling a story or speaking the truth?

Birds Charitable Hospital

I visited Birds Charitable Hospital in Sadar, Gurgaon. There are sick pigeons, parrots, bajarigars, love birds and various other birds that are fed, given proper treatment under vet guidance. On curing birds like pigeons and parrots they release them to fly. The birds like bajarigars are adopted by the interested candidates as they can’t be released if done so will be eaten by the birds of prey. There is long waiting to adopt bajarigars.
Pic : For those which can't fly or very ill, need separate unit.

Do I have my name on waiting list to adopt bajarigars?

Birds in a room!

While walking through one of the streets of Gurgaon, I looked up and saw various birds behind the metallic perforations covering windows. I curiously went inside. There I met Mr. ‘L’ who showed me the whole area. We went upstairs and I click this photo where there were a variety of birds in just one room.

Do you have any idea what it could be?

I hate my mother

My mom only had one eye. I hated her… She was such an embarrassment. She cooked for students and teachers to support the family.There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to say hello to me. I was so embarrassed.How could she do this to me? I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out. The next day at school one of my classmates said, ‘EEEE, your mom only has one eye!’I wanted to bury myself. I also wanted my mom to just disappear. I confronted her that day and said, ‘ If you’re only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?’My mom did not respond… I didn’t even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was full of anger. I was oblivious to her feelings.I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with her. So I studied real hard, got a chance to go abroad to study.Then, I got married. I bought a house of my own. I had kids of my own. I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts. Then one day, my Mother came to visit me. She hadn’t seen me in years and she didn’t even meet her grandchildren.When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled at her for coming over uninvited. I screamed at her, ‘How dare you come to my house and scare my children!’ GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!’And to this, my mother quietly answered, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address,’ and she disappeared out of sight.One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house. So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip. After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity.My neighbors said that she died. I did not shed a single tear. They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.‘My dearest son,I think of you all the time. I’m sorry that I came to your house and scared your children.I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion. But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you. I’m sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were growing up.You see……..when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye. As a mother, I couldn’t stand watching you having to grow up with one eye. So I gave you mine.I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye.With all my love to you,
Your mother.’

My views on this story which I read somewhere on the net : If mother had told his child earlier, he would have taken good care of her in old age. Now he would only be guilty for his doings. In a way mother made a mistake by not telling him the truth earlier.

Do you agree or disagree with me?
