ApParent expectations

Life is full of expectations, and that’s good, right? Expectations are positive, encouraging feelings that motivate us to experience life in all its splendor – except when they’re not. When your boss tells you that he expects your report on his desk by evening, he’s not being an overly optimistic gypsy predicting...

Take your time, but make it snappy…

As some of you know, I got married on the 28th of Jan, 2012, kick starting the Mayan end-of-days prophecies in my own sweet way. The one question that is most commonly asked to newlyweds of the modern era is “Where are the snaps?” My wedding ring, my wife by...

2012 – The End of Daze

January 28, 2012 was a defining day for me. Specifically, it defined the beginning of married life. It was the end of an era, and a beginning of another era. It was the best of times, it was the best of times. It was on this day that I married...

Party In The Sixties

Let’s give it to my dad, the world’s youngest sexagenarian. This Saturday, my dad celebrated 60 years of energetic existance, with a party of thirty in close tow. His siblings and their extended family zeroed in on the center stage, our home back in Cochin. It was a grand gala....

Dowry, Mi? Pha!!

Recently, a lurking, irksome, nearly forgotten evil made its presence known, albeit in a slightly different form. It was an evil that I, and so many of my discerning friends, had blissfully considered long forgotten… an ugly memory of the past, buried under the thick fabric of time. We were...

Yet Another Wedding Narrative

Wedding bells chimed… metaphorically, of course. Crowds cheered, drinks emptied, cameras clicked, and speeches given. Another joyous occasion. And no, I am still safe, sound, and blissfully single. The wedding was of my prodigious cousin, Roshan Francis, and my multi-talented friend, Ashika Sharma. Wrongly rumored to be next in line,...

The Mush That Binds

Regular readers of this site would know of the cold war and subsequent status quo between Hamish and his relatives over the quest for marital bliss. For those who came in late, I am at a stage in life where I put up trenches and shout “hold your fort” to...

Marriage-ment by Guessing Around

I just bought a brand new laptop. I don’t really know how it looks like, I don’t know the configuration, and I don’t really know how much it cost me. All I know is that I have indeed bought a laptop, and that my buddy, Nash, feels it was a...

The Wedding Season

I don’t know what the deal is with the Nov to Feb time. But a lot of weddings take place during these months. But this season was sort of special. Lot of MY friends got hitched! We have hardly left the stage of writing notes in classes, and there they...
