To my readers

On many occasions some of my blog readers (read sashdude, rexzilla and on occasion - esp mails- rexjournal) have told me about my constant misspellings in my posts.

Well, I can blame it on the keyboard, which has to be pressed real hard for some of the alphabets, but then that would be a lame excuse. (Because it wasnt true in my prev comp)

What I can say is that I am in a hurry. I need to get the ideas off my head before my mind moves on to other things. Before I start off on another tangent line of thought, I try to translate my present thoughts into words onto a comp, and at that time it does not matter if it is a 'the' or a 'teh'.

And then of course is the fact that I am sitting in office, and the last thing I would want to do is spend time posting and making sure the content is reader-easy. It is more about getting a thought/idea off my head between work (sometimes between many bits of work).

However, what again can be said is, I am careless, I couldnt care less. To check and double check go against my principle in life, and once done, it is more than enough I have delivered...let someone else do the checking...and if you want to read my posts, they come in a package - with spell errors.

What I can say in defense of the last one is... I have had enough checking every bit and piece during my work... last thing I want to do is do the same for my blog, my recreation!

Anyway, so all said and done, the fact is I have spell errors on my post, making them an interesting and challenging read for most of my audience... you have to use your heads and figure out "taing" is actually "taking" and that "vry" in that context is "every".

I would like to believe I put you through a small personal development program as you read my blog. I am extremely considerate, and like to develop my frnds' intellect. By sharing my thoughts, and by giving them small challenges, such as stated above.

Now aint I great! **beam**

PS - my guppy ate! Actually finished  the food in the bowl by the time I reached yesterday.

Gujju parlance

PPl here in this office use typical gujju parlance. Like we say "Dude!" for that derogatory "you dont know anything" pronoun, they say "sarcar", "seth", and more often, "saheb mara" (my (dear) sir).

Like we say 'buddy' and 'yaar' and some say 'man', at the end of a sentence like "Cmon buddy." in the "oh -its-enought-dont-talk-rubbish" and "i know better" tone, they say "Raja".

So the words that float around are
"sarcar! Tame aapsho na" (Dude! pls send it over)
"Aisa na hoy raja" (Thats not how it hapens, buddy)
"saheb mara! kyan chho tame?" (Dude! Where are you (nowadays))

Almost every sentence ends in raja and is punctuated by ah, hallo.., (trying to keo attention) by most ppl, leaving me humming the Tagore song for apparently no reason. Certainly no literal connection.

Why do trousers need to have zippers?

After Eons of evolution, man still wears trousers. With zippers in front.
That is the standard form of trousers im sure everyone will agree.

After Years of wearing only trousers, (wo)men still forget to zip up.
Doesnt that say something about the sturdiness of the model?

Why is that everything evolved. Right from making cloths to ways to secure cloth (velcro, hooks, buttons, zippers), yet the types of clothes have remained more or less the same. Sure the earlier pantaloons were skin tight, but they still were the same thing. Essentially. And yet, the basic format of trousers remains the same.

I think it has happened to every man to have worn this garment that he has walked at least a few meters in the precence of well dressed (i mean fully dressed) company with his zipper unzipped. A cause of enough embarassment. I know of quite a few men havng walked through a day (or half) in this position. And,...it is particularly out of place for a woman to point it out, unless she knows him well.

I wonder if the advantages so outweigh these outside chances? hmm. I will not think. (And I am not thinking)

PS - no. there is no one in office wandering around with an open fly. this was just a memory flash.
