Travelling by a metropolitan bus is not that agonising as widely apprehended. Its fun, only if you stop fussing about the congestion and be a silent spectator to the events around you. You can overhear phone conversations legitimately, watch quarrels for free, enjoy some rib-tickling visuals and get some F1 feel. So lets start with the driver. All MTC drivers have this common syndrome called the 'GODLYMASSA'. The syndrome derives it name from the fact that ....

Throwing shoes at leaders is becoming a rage now. Shoes have replaced eggs and tomatoes, to reach the prestigious position of " the most desirable thing to throw at leaders". Shoes have attained this pinnacle of glory, after a long stint as " the most desirable thing to make garlands, meant for the losing Indian Cricket side & Captain". One of the most significant reasons why, shoes are the most sought after defamation products is because they are as harmless as eggs and tomatoes. A Victim of a shoe-hit cannot sue you under " attempt to murder" of the Indian Penal Code. That saves you the risk of being in jail for a very long time. Moreover publicly-courteous leaders may not want you to be harmed and you may end up winning lakhs as cash awards.
- Shoes with colour powder smeared on the sole, technically designed to form an imprint of the opposition's election symbol, if thrown accurately .
- Underwears, which now are being couriered.
- Balloons filled with apple juice, designed to burst on contact with the victim's face. A rocket launcher like thing is to be used to shoot the balloons, since it is highly improbable that a balloon thrown by hand will hit the victim & even if it hits, the victim will have enough time to run to the adjoining constituency before the balloon reaches him.
- CD's of Windows Vista & hopefully Windows 7
- Park Avenue's Tranquil deodorant. It smells worse than body odour.
- Election Manifestos of the victim's party. ( I guess this could be the most insulting thing for a leader. )

Those were days when i was a bit over 5 feet.
Those were days when i did not want to go anywhere near girls of my class, for the sole reason that they were taller than me.
Those were days when i was in my 7th grade.
Those were days when Kahaani Ghar Ghar ki & Kolangal started.
Uh huh ! i guess i am wrong. 'Kahaani' started even before that i suppose. Never mind, i am confused we will find out later. The issue now is that,
I am a bit over 5'8.
I am taller than most girls of my age.
I am 19.
And Kolangal & Kahaani are still running.
Ahem! i am not sure about 'Kahaani' again . So lets chuck it out and shift our focus to Kolangal.. ( 'kahaani' was mentioned to appease the burgeoning national reader base of this blog .... )
I was wondering how kolangal managed to ruin lives of school children & the bread winners all these days. Speaking of the bread winner, i get reminded of those poor husbands who had to do with just bread and jam for dinner sometimes ( courtesy: kolangal ). I was trying to figure out kolangal's success formula , hence the delay in posting ( good for an excuse right ?? ).
For any tamil soap to click, the script has to be appealing & for a soap to be appealing it has to be confusing & time consuming.
Thats exactly what kolangal team did flawlessly, with the astounding storyline below.
The Addling storyline :
A marries B
Then A ditches B to marry C.
But Before that A & B have 4 Children.
For convenience sake lets call them D,E,F & Abhi ( due respect to main character ).
Meanwhile A & C have 2 ... errr... some number of children & out of which one is called Adhi...
Offtopic : Adhi stammers intentionally ..err .. inadvertently.
For now Adhi is elder than abhi but A married C only after he married B & Abhi is the eldest of of the 4. Now A does'nt know where B is until 300 ... err 650 episodes. But A's brother Z knows & so does Z's wife Y.Amazingly Z & Y are not aware of A's whereabouts.
Also Adhi is the antagonist till some 700 episodes ( till my 9th grade .. errr 12th grade ).. then he is sidelined & a new antagonist X ( with XX chromosome) comes.
Offtopic: X speaks english like Adhi. So obviously people will suspect A, with a bad track record.
Also Abhi doesn't succeed in construction business because she is no MBA like Adhi.
Adhi marries Abhi's friend W & they are blessed with an issue named V.
There is another marriage which adds twist to the storyline. It is the marriage of Abhi's sister .. err brother D to Adhi's brother .. err sister unnamed ( for reference sake U .. hey not u ... letter 'U')
Now that's enough for the confusion part.
Confusion alone doesn't form part of the success formula. It is also the time consumption techniques that contribute to the success.
I think this post is getting a lot time consuming for you
Catch a glimpse of that in part 2 of this post.

I have come across people who just cannot stop raving about themselves.
One fine day, god cursed me with a co-passenger in the metro rail. It was on that day did i come to know that god really exists. I was completely assured that he had designated the work of keeping track of sins to the mighty Chithragupta. And that was the day i repented the most for being so corrupt, so inept at doing my duties and for the sins i had committed.
You may want to know what made me so philosophical and what the co-passenger did to me ?
But i ain't gonna tell you. It is because i firmly believe that the best route to happiness is keeping people around you cheerful and happy. Recounting my experience will make you unhappy, dejected, depressed and defeat my above stated objective.
But can i just let the thing get buried with me ??? I need to tell somebody what happened. I just want to recount the horror, the torture i went through hearing to this co-passenger. The 45 minutes he spoke to his friends ( i was just hearing them, he never spoke to me ), i felt as though i was trapped in the Taj hotel on 26/11.
But then let this get buried with me, beacause it's not worth mentioning.
Ah! i suppose you went thru all the above crap to know why Nayanthara is so popular. And you must have got it already. If you could run through my crap to know about Nayan , no wonder she is popular.
No no ... No Foul Language!!
