Thanx Rishi!!

Hey U,

You know, why a lazy bum is talking to you thru is new world contraption (or such like thing); its cos I know this stud guy Rishi (for short). I have been reading in the papers of every 'no one' in Hollywood talking about his or blog. Also I have read some excellent blogs by people like you and me, expressing very perceptively about our daily lives. But somehow, I had not got down to having my own - despite this blog mania being around for sometime.

Perhaps, I was a bit overawed by this 'internet' and all this offshoots beyond the email. The very same way, I am not clued on to the mobile mania - for anything other than 'yapping'. Kinda old way of thinking I guess.

The whole thing changed thanks to Hello! CM ( and Rishi. Catching up with Rishi made this stuff look simple nuff to try and now, sitting beside me, he has coached me to mk this happen.

Guess more such mindless 'unmuddling' ll happen going forward.

Thanx a ton Rishi, certainly a good brunch is due, with good deal of beer. Hope you would like to read, what comes out of those beer session(s).

The history, the culture, the cuisine and the local chutzpah [espl. Puri / Cuttack]. Even more interestingly, I have never pondered enough on these places and their unique niceties to have them simmering in my cerebral consciousness. They are somewhere deep there sedimented at best; and at [likely] worst, I do not have the desired ammunition to do justice to write anything substantial. Probably, I will have to resort to the frivolous flourish of the might of the language as a cover.

A point to note - I have never seen the Bali Yatra [Cuttackis don’t faint please]. The Puri beach and temple I have always felt is my backyard [so had the taken for granted attitu…

2019 – Winner takes home nothing

For a country of 70 years and many more years to come – one election that is likely throw up either a hung parliament or a toothless government is quite insignificant. Unless we follow elections only for adrenalin rush, we should not follow 2019 general elections at all.
The earlier blog was based on current sentiments and elementary game theory. It has thrown up some names and scenarios. We all know that the electorate is fickle and so are the sentiments. We also know, that the BJP election machinery is the best in the country today {sans probably the BJD in Odisha – which has an equally hard nosed and through machinery; in addition it has the finesse to be not seen as giving war rhetoric despite ruffling many a feathers) so the tables can turn.
However for the purpose of this blog, lets assume my prognosis in the last blog holds true. It is a good read and nice spice for future story-telling, but such situations will not result in lasting success for the winners.
