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...

WD Series – Wall staring champion 2011

From the way we talk to each other and the the way we look at each other through the convenience of Skype, there has been considerable audience speculation that a) we have been courting each other for years in secrecy b) we may not have the patience to wait till the...

Wedding Daze

Hullo, everybody. And yes, that means you too. It’s happening. In 2012, Hamish Joy becomes nuptially compliant. I’m hanging my bachelor boots out to dry. And later, when I’m looking the other way, my fiance plans to burn them and bury the ashes. I will be tying the proverbial knot...

Of Brides and RSVPs

No. Not premature at all. And I didn’t come to this decision lightly. A great many number of days spent with two fingers alternatively tapping the forehead outlined the kind of thinking I put in before I came to the conclusion. It was quite clear in my own mind. It...

Check mate

It’s all about stages. That’s all. Man goes through several stages in life, and one of the preconditioned milestones through the quagmire of existential race… is marriage. The body clock gives timely reminders for shaping the mind to adapt to each stage. For a while now, my parents, among others,...

The Sicker Sucker

I’ve HAD it! It’s a goddamn antediluvian conspiracy. And I’m not talking about the conspiracy to get me to use ‘antediluvian’ in the wrong context. I’m talking about something bigger. Bigger, meaner and revolving around a common target… meeee. Granted, I spend most of my time in Bangalore feverishly avoiding...

You do? Really?

It never ceases to amaze me how you can find people with radically different problems in life. And life, in its infinite wisdom, chooses to scatter its resources rather unjustly. Bloke A may be running through life looking for something; the same stuff that bloke B might be throwing away...

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,...

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...
