How did she ever get in those clothes ?

This is a very very old post. But it was published only in the blog running in my mindosphere. Many things have changed since those days, me, my thoughts, my outlook on life, culture and relationships. But still, this might be interesting for a few of you. Moreover I was reminded of this incident when I saw my label 'Winning Arguments' on the side bar.

Time was about 6.30 and it was a normal evening in September 2007. Jencil and I were on a stroll. I saw a girl on the road walking in the opposite direction. Boy, she wore a tight dress. So much tight that out of all the odds, the first thought that ran in MY mind on that sight was 'How did she ever get in those clothes ?' She was definitely uncomfortable, but she sure was enjoying all the attention she received from everyone on the road. I am sure no one looked at her face, not at least at the first glance.

"Ithellam konjam overa iruku da" (this is way too much) - I spoke. Jencil immediately turned towards me, and said - "Why too much? Its her freedom and choice. When guys build their body by going to gym don't they wear tight clothes to show off and walk around ?" I listened patiently to some more things he added to prove that I'm wrong. Then I said - "Ok Machi, let us say you build your body like Hrithik Roshan, (Sorry Hrithik Roshan wherever you are)... and wear tight clothes on the road. And someone commented a 'little loudly' that you had an attractive body and you heard it. What would you do then ?" Very happily without even thinking he replied - "Definitely I will thank, wave my shoulders and raise my collar". Then I continued - "Ok, let us say you are married and your 'awesome' wife walks with such clothes and someone on the road comments that her body is very sexy a little loudly that you and some more people on the road happen to hear it". "Appavum collar raise pannivittu thanks solluviya machan?" (Even then will you raise your collar and say thanks ?)

I couldn't hear any reply. When I turned around, My friend Jencil was missing for a moment, the person standing in his place was Mr.Jencil - The Toothpaste Ad Model. "Sorry, I acknowledge I was a bl00dy hypocrite" is what I heard even though he didn't speak.

Please don't judge me based on this post. I believe if you support something, that applies to you too.


  1. Men also show off their cars, phones, estates etc. I guess everyone in life has this urge to get approval from others that they are important or attractive! I don't think that's so wrong. But if they hope that just because they are attractive, they would get free meals throughout their lives without slogging, boy they need to think again - Both men and women.

How I know Vodafone India is selling your numbers to Telemarketers!

My phone speakers stopped working a little while ago. So when the phone is not with me, which is, most of the time, I have the habit of calling people back after I see the missed calls. So I called up this unknown number today who had tried to call me earlier. "Good Morrrrningg Doctor Raahaevoswangyaaa" (that's how he pronounced it), the guy said on the other line. Ok, I know! the 'Doctor' part right? I will explain soon below. My brain quickly figured out two possible callers - either its an old friend or its someone from Vodafone customer service calling me.

I thought it was an old friend first, because the way the guy wished me 'good morning' was the rough equivalent of a class of seventy five 5th standard students wishing the class teacher 'good morning' in the first hour of Monday morning. Except, there was no chorus and just one voice tone which was very close to Akshay Kumar's, in one of his 'decade old' movies with that annoyin…

If you hate Rajnikanth !

He is 58 years old in real life, yet he has been a 25+ years old in reel life for the last 25 years.His heroines are mostly with their real ages, equivalent to his reel life age.He looks just like the guy next door and not with the killer looks you will fall in love with.He doesn't have/never had muscles like Arnold, Salman or Aamir Khan in Ghajini.He is bald now, and has been for a long time, never combed his hair properly in movies !He doesn't know to dance like Hrithik Roshan, aaaw forget Hrithik. If you have seen the "Desi Girl" song in Dostana movie where Abhishek and John compete for the "Who can be the worst dancer ? contest", Rajnikanth's dance is only slightly better than that. At times he has proved himself to be a sufficiently good dancer too.

He is the highest paid actor in India, 2nd highest paid in Asia after Jackie Chan.
He was born, brought up in Bangalore, but today he is the most powerful guy in Tamil Nadu.
He has a really hug…

My New Indian Hero

Its very probable that you have already heard of him through his TED talk on "Sixth sense". He is all over twitter and social media now, for the wrong reasons.

Pranav Mistry is my new Indian hero, not because he holds a degree from IIT and MIT, has been called as one of TED's ten best inventors of the world, or because he is Samsung's Director of Research in the US, but because he presented one of the world's first smart watches for Samsung before the entire world and with the global news media watching it and didn't bother even a single bit to hide his Indian accent.
If you already are asking, "And why should he do that?" Congrats! You are not on the dark side.
And what did we Indian's talk about after the event? We made jokes about him on twitter about his accent. And we didn't stop at that, a lot of us made hurtful comments in serious ways as well. Its both enraging and alarming to see that how many of us actually consider it less sophistic…
