Lord Indra and the Sindhi

Once Lord Indra arranged a meeting of all Indian Community leaders. One by one he was receiving every Community Leader, every time one community leader came, Indra respectfully stood up and greeted them. When it was the Sindhi leaders turn Indra didn't get up and quickly said "Ok Ok! Nice to meet you! Go and take your seat!"

Now everybody was surprised that Indra respected every community except the Sindhi Leader who represented the cream of business society.
Out of curiosity someone asked "Lord Indra, Why is it you showed respect for everyone except the Sindhi Leader? You never stood up for him?"

Lord lndra replied, 'l respect him but if I stand up and greet him he will sit on my chair?

Cow on the tracks

A passenger train is creeping along, slowly. Finally  it creaks to a halt. A passenger sees a TT walking by outside. "What's going on?" she yells out of the window.

'Cow on the track!" replies the TT'.

Ten minutes later, the train resumes its slow pace. Within five minutes however, it stops again. The woman sees the same TT walk by again. She leans out the window and yells,

'What happened? Did we catchup vvith the cow again?'

Hotel Keral-fonia


On the road to Trivandrum
Coconut oil in my hair
Warm smell of avial
Rising up through the air

Up ahead in the distance
I sew a bright pink tube-light
My tummy rumbled, l felt weak and thin
I had to stop for a bite

There he stood in the doorway
Flicked his mundu in style
And l was thinking to myself

I don't like look of his sinister smile
Then he lit up a petromax
Muttering "No Power today"
More Mallus down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the Hotel Kerala
Such a lousy place, (such a lousy place etc.) .

Choukee No. 11
Teesri Manzil
China Town

Date: Nav Do Gyarah

My Dear 'Anamika':

You must be surprised to receive this 'Prem Patra' from me. Let me make my 'Pahechan' to you as 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge'. Though I am an 'Awaara', I am also your 'Deewana'.

I am making you a 'Prarthna' to enter my 'Zindagi' as a 'Priyatama'. Even though I do not have any 'Sambandh' with you, I still consider you as my 'Dream Girl' with 'Lal Dupatta Malmal Ka'. There are only 'Do Raaste' left for me. One is to get your love by 'Tyag' or to go the 'Rangeela' way.

Wouldn't you like to be 'Mere Jeevan Saathi' as you are 'Lakhon Mein Ek'? I also hope that you will 'Guide' me in 'Bahar' as we are made for 'Ek Duje Ke Liye'.

We will live in 'Naya Zamana' where we will have a 'Suhana Safar'. In this 'Himalay Ki God Mein', our 'Bandhan' is going to be tied with 'Preet Ki Dor'. I hope that we will have nothing but 'Anand' in 'Ye Dillagi'.

Aren't you bored of 'Akele Hum Akele Tum' life? Let this 'Baazigar' be your 'Boy Friend' and we start 'Pehli Mohabbat'. This 'Chahat' is going to lead to a 'Milan' where you are going to call me everyday for 'Aao Pyar Karen'.

Now, 'Phir Kab Miloge' as 'Tumse Accha Kaun Hein'? As you know my love is 'Himalay Se Uncha' and hopefully our 'Mulakat' will be 'An Evening in Paris'. 'Aa Gale Lag Jaa'!

'Hum Aapke Hain Koun...?'

'Prem Pujari'

You know your parents are desi when...Part 1

You know your parents are desi when.......
  1. When your mom makes a Mexican meal and tells you to count the number of Taco Bell sauce packets in her purse.
  2. They peel the stamps off letters that the postal service missed to mark up.
  3. They buy 2-ply toilet paper and they tell you to use only 1 ply at a time to make it last.
  4. When your mom comes home with napkins stuffed in her purse of the restaraunt she last ate at.
  5. When you become part of that viscious clan who recycles wedding gifts-
  6. Take Indian snacks anywhere it says "No food allowed"
  7. Make kichdi on the beach wearing saris
  8. Wear shorts with dress socks and tennis shoes
  9. Try to use coupons that expired 5 months ago and argue when the store doesn't accept them, or simply tear off the expiration date
  10. Eat half of a pizza at a restaurant and then complaining that it wasn't made right (I want refund!)
