This I just have to tell you guys.
Reliable sources from Kolkata (my mother actually) inform me that one of the Kali Pujo “committees” going around collecting Pujo subscriptions is calling themselves “Rok Sako To Rok Lo”. [This is not a spoof—-there is actually a club that has sprung up with this name] inspired no doubt by the mega-hit movie directed and produced by a great management guru.
Haha….so this is where the moolah for the swimming pools and WiFi comes from—-door to door subscriptions gathered through a mix of innovative marketing and muscle—-
“Dada what should I put you down for? What nothing? Excuse me do you know who we are? Do you want to stay in this locality or not? Do you want a duly notarized email from the “Sena Who Sux” asking for 175 crores? Do you think that’s going to be fun? Or would you prefer us burning chickens before they are hatched in front of your door?
Good….now you have started thinking beyond your own wallet….do remember to come for the bhog ceremony—our Kali image has a long ponytail drenched in blogger’s blood, with Ma standing wearing a necklace made out of the heads of Gaurav Sabnis, Reshmi Bansal and assorted other bloggers while she strangles with her feet—–all the IIMs.
And that’s not all, if you pay us 4 lacs we will throw in a not-recognized-by-anyone MBA degree along with Ma’s Prasad…………”
Jai Ma Kali ………

“Ma standing wearing a necklace made out of the heads of Gaurav Sabnis, Reshmi Bansal and assorted other bloggers…” — just too good.
What next… I3D starting one of their’s “Thok sako to thok lo” ….
â€œour Kali image has a long ponytail drenched in blogger’s blood, with Ma standing wearing a necklace made out of the heads of Gaurav Sabnis, Reshmi Bansal and assorted other bloggers while she strangles with her feet—–all the IIMsâ€. â€“ this is superb really superb. I think you should send this article link to IBM,Gaurav Sabnis and others. Your writing is fantastic! I also like the name of the article.
By the way, what did your mother ask the collecters? How could she keep a straight face while talking to them. Did she give money to the collectors?
Good one boss… keep writing,
hey bong, new to ur blogs. been ploughing through the old archives as well. wonderful treasure house of humor. keep them coming, and the chicken hunt – long live!!
You know the Bong theory,right? It’s like,we’re all part of the greater bong,see (so nice of you to pay homage in your blog title,btw)? You’re like,the Big Chief of the Greater Bong tribe. You’re the teww knoo man.
Dude!!! Been following your blogs lately… and man do they rock!!! And though my bong egoism hurts, I must say you’r the best I have seen in recent times. Your address shows Maryland, and my Engineer(ed) noose smells the putrid smell of a fishy university. If that’s what you are doing, dude do us all a favor, and turn a writer. You can probably start by publishing a compilation of your blogs. Cheers!!!
@Ritzy: I3D is concentrating on Durga Pujo subscriptions….
@Prerona: Hmmm indeed
@Yourfan: My mother burst out laughing when she saw the name of the club precisely because she had the background of the IIPM fracas from my post. I dont think she gave them anything—-after all she supports the desi blogosphere.
@Lalit: Of course shall keep on writing …thank you
@Gaurav: Are you THE Gaurav? Or the REAL THE Gaurav?
@Puranjoy: Long live the chickenhearts.
@Srin: Much pleased to be the “Big Chief”….I knew I was Big but the Chief is a pleasant surprise 🙂
@Meek Disciple: A fishy university? Now which one is that? And how fishy? It could be turtley but fishy? Yes would love to publish but who will pay to print this junk?
On a serious note I have a book idea—what ails India—a tongue-in-cheek look at the “big” problems we face today– any publishers out there?
I don’t think its that Gaurav…
Amazing post though. Seriously, write a book – it’ll be a hit!
