Whoever came up with the name for this school of thought???? What is so 'super' about this stition? It just messes my head up (like that's very difficult, huh? - that's besides the point)....

Pls dont think I'm above it either. I believe in it too. I have carried my raincoat with me when they announced 'prospective' showers on the weather forecast in India. Can't believe they have the guts to have that still going on TV to date. Even the cyclone takes an unexpected twist to Andhra when they announce it in Tamilnadu (maybe that's the intention.... you never know).

I love the omen about black cats crossing your path when you leave the house. All our politicians go out with their own black cats - day in and day out. This is serious stuff man and you gotta read between the lines when it comes to such philosophy.
Go figure!!!

If you ever catch me coming back for a glass of water after I tripped on my way out - that's cos I realized that I'm dehydrated from drinking the previous night. All of you that believe in signs.... am very much with you despite these jokes. I believe in Superstitions too.... just as much as I believe in Love. You gotta be IN it to UNDERSTAND it.

- NOT another 'simple southy'.... just call me a Madrasi...

Keep the Cheer!!

I don't speak Hindi, but lemme confess - I would really love to. I have tried to learn it but it just won't happen. You know, like this ONE person you really wanna screw but then you end up screwing yourself the real way.... then the love turns into hate and later when the pain is over - stops at a love-hate situation. That exactly describes my attempts in learning this language.

However, let me tell you why I failed - lest you underestimate me. My major issue with Hindi is 'gender' - everything has a gender!!???!! Now, I am the kind of person that can't handle this gender difference between Man and Woman to begin with. So you can imagine my plight if I had to figure out the sexuality of my TV remote. It would be a little easier if I had the choice to give 'em all a sex change depending on my mood, except for my pen. A pen will always be female to me!!! Not happening, right?

The other problem is my hindi-speaking friends. Guys, can you try and be a little more tolerant to us folks? I tried speaking Hindi to my friend (from Gujarat - if you care to know) that I was visiting. She couldn't take more than a couple of broken hindi statements from me. She was quick to react - "Please STOP!!! I'll forget my grammar. Please speak in English only, okay? So tell me, when did you came?"

I was completely confounded. I couldn't afford to lose my grammar either. Anyways, I chose to give up on the language and just keep the friend.

Keep the cheer!!!
