I Think

To brief or not to brief.

If there is one thing I hated more than Mandira Bedi talking about cricket, it is having to wear underwear. Or to be precise having to wear anything at all, if it werent for the fear of being ostracised, I would be running around naked and happy. That explains clothing, but still doesnt explain why I should be wearing underwear(to hide boners?), and I thoroughly despised having to wear underwear. Until I bought boxers.
For around 25 years, I have been the victim of the biggest scam of all time – briefs. I was a prisoner. Restrained. Suffocated. Dying for freedom. And then boxers happened. After sex, boxers must be the best thing that happened to man. And being a virgin only makes it even more special. I cannot understand why it is not a hit. If it were I wonder why I havent heard about it. Maybe its like sex, everybody in this country does it, but nobody talks about it. But come on, food, shelter and comfortable underwear are the basic needs of every man. And nobody should be denied this. It amazes me that none of the parties have mentioned it in their manifestos. I take it upon myself to bring freedom to mankind. Henceforth, I will be the chief-evangelist for comfortable underwear. Forget briefs. Go for boxers.

Adhigara Pichai

The Obama administration has promised financial aid to pakistan on an installment basis of about 1.5 billion$ a year, over the next five years, provided Pakistan took the necessary steps to counter terrorism within its borders. Some say that Obama is infact bribing Pakistan so that USA is immune to terror attacks in the future. Pfft… we dont need a conspiracy theorist to say this, any 8th std kid would know it. Anyway, coming to Pakistan, Islamabad has replied to the US that the money is welcome, but the conditions arent.

Itha thaan athigara pichainnu solluvangalo!

Election thoughts

Sensationalist headline.

Sensationalist headline.

The only hero(or in politically correct terms – villain) in this election campaign so far has been Varun Gandhi. On the day of his arrest, Indian Express made a rather sensationalist headline “Gandhi Jailed”, grossly glorifying the wrong Gandhi to proportions that one finds fitting only for the great one. BJP, as usual is trying to gain as much mileage out of this incident, distancing itself from the comments ‘attributed’ to Varun, while all the time milking the incident for all its worth.

Other than that shameful incident, the current campaign doesnt look to have gathered steam. The reason I find it so maybe because Tamil Nadu goes to polls in the last phase and things here havent gathered momentum yet. Still, the vigour in campaigning that one saw during the Mahajan era is clearly missing. Although I do see a lot of Advani’s adwords campaigning, it lacks the effectiveness and the reach that one has become used to seeing through TV, radio and posters.

Even the Congress hasnt done anything remarkable yet, and the Jai Ho! ad is honestly very, very disappointing. To see leaders of the past as their poster boys only highlights the nonexistence of leaders in the current generation.

The real activity seems to be happening in the third front, Sitaram Yechury has taken over as the chief strategist of the front, forging key alliances and the latest wolf to join the pack is NCP. I dread the day the third front turns out victorious, I cannot stand the thought of watching a couple of MP’s holding the nation to ransom, parties fighting for ministerial portfolios evoke strong images of hounds fight over a hare’s carcass. Must vote wisely.
