Oh Yaara Silly Silly (Updated)

45 Comments

I have been tagged by Vulturo. The object of the meme is simple: post a silly picture of yourself. So here to the left is one that I believe meets universally-accepted standards of silliness. Sufficiently high on Sambuca shots, I donned my Halloween priest costume (Halloween was a few days away) and became a whisky priest for an evening.

No offense is meant to any community/religion—-this is just silliness. No flames and no fatwas please. Just to show I am an equal opportunities offender, I will confess to the fact that I dressed up as a not-so-holy Hindu sadhu for a fancy dress competition when I was 10 years old. I wish I had that image scanned.

[Update: My mother sent the scanned picture. Here it is].

Since we are on silliness, I have this pending tag that Bidi-K insists I go through especially because I have cribbed before at not getting tag-love. Let’s get that done while your attention is diverted by the picture above.

I am thinking about [the lessons relevant for India in super-talented Kevin Pietersen migrating to England because of ‘positive discrimination’ in South Africa i.e. racial quotas in team selection for which he lost his place in the team to a certain Goolam Bodi, simply because Bodi was non-white and Pietersen was not.]

I said [“Please Shakira. Please just shake your Yudhistirian hips (since her hips “don’t lie”) Colombian style and do not bother to do Indian dance steps. Cause even with Farah Khan doing the choreography, your desi dance number sucked at the MTV Music Video Awards.” ]

I want to [know why Darrell Hair was asking for hush money from the ICC like a lady of easy virtue who has taken secret photos——I thought the issue was whether Pakistan tampered with cricket balls and not whether they tampered with Darrell Hair’s]

I wish [ I had started blogging even earlier]

I hear [Himesh Reshammiya’s voice going ‘Aaaaaannnhhh Aaaaannnhhhh’ in my head]

I wonder [what the guy who came up with the movie title “Fauj Main Mauj” usually has for dinner]

I regret [a lot of things in my life.]

I am [a human being. Really, this tag is extremely silly]

I dance [Mithun-da style]

I sing [like Kumar Sanu’s long-lost brother]

I cry [whenever someone sends me a forward that says “Today is “I love you” day. Pass this on to 20 people and your secret crush will propose to you today. Else you will lose your reproductive organ by 12 tonight in a factory accident”]

I am not always [totally sober]

I make with my hands [love, sweet love]

I write [so that my hands are not otherwise occupied]

I confuse [myself frequently as to what’s good, what’s bad and what’s reality.]

I need [what a guy at 30 does. Figure that one out by yourself.]

And this concludes the silliness for today. For the silly picture meme, I tag JAP, AniG, Rimi, Teleute , BidiK (one good deed deserves another), Anyesha, Subhamoy and Urmea.

As for me….

  1. LOL@I hear Himesh. 🙂

    And on the KP issue, It must be noted that he played for Natal as a BOWLER (his batting wasn’t even discovered then). To me it sounds more like a justification for his decision.

  2. Along with I make love, I cry was very interesting. I wish is something everybody wishes because we could get to see more of your posts.

    Whether you choose to be serious or silly
    In arousing interest and amusement you never dilly dally
    Wether it is Kolkatta, Bombay or Delhi
    Exchanging news and views with you is like an intriguing Tennis rally.

  4. I wonder [what the guy who came up with the movie title “Fauj Main Mauj” usually has for dinner]…
    ok, just had to mention I still cannot stop laughing at that, though I have no idea what “mauj” means :))

  5. Amen to you the Great Bong, Amen.
    Hilarious! Especially this:
    I wonder [what the guy who came up with the movie title “Fauj Main Mauj” usually has for dinner]
    I can’t stop laughing at that!

  7. @Patrix: Loaded. Fully loaded.

    @Sanjay: Aww come on. Its not essential for a batsman to replace a batsman. There have been occasions like “We need another bowler and not a batsman”. Remember Sourav was a replacement for Zaheer. Yes I know that was political. Just like this one.

    @Hiren: Nice !

    @DeboLiN: 🙂

    @Kingsley: Now do I ? Incidentally “Mauj” means “fun” with an undertone of ribaldry.

    @Purokayashto: 🙂

    @Zero: 🙂

    @Ali: Please do.

    @CruciFire: 🙂

    @Rimi: I have always had so many things to say but just did not know how and where to express them.

    @Suyog: So I was.

    @SEV::-)

    @Bengali Guy: I wonder why the name “Ron Jeremy” came to your head on seeing my silly pic. But yes I agree totally with what you said.

  8. Honestly, how long do you take to come up with such gems? I guess not too long otherwise your wife would get so mad at you that you won’t get any food to eat so that you are ‘sober’ enough to write!!

    Your ‘regret’ is the outcome of ‘I am a human being’. Your ‘regret’, your ‘I am’ and your ‘wish’ is also mine. These are the only things that I can relate to. For others I am not at all good enough like you (understatement of the century!) to relate to. You simply rock!!

    On a serious note, we know you thru your posts. But in reality are you so funny and happy go lucky? I have read that Shibram Chakravarti who made his readers laugh thru his writings was actually a very serious man!! I hope you are not like him because I don’t like so serious people.
    You look great in those pics!

  10. Pic 1: Mr. Hyde takes over Dr. Jekyll.

    Pic 2: Mr. Hyde has slept after a “hard” night’s work. Jekyll will wake up in the morning.

    By the way, do you remember the hardcover book in your hand?

  11. your attire in the pic is one way to ensure you don’t meet with the same plight as the 12 in the Northwest … but don’t try it too often 😉
    btw, you in Mumbai Mirror today ….

  12. Love Sweet Love? With the hands?!!!!
    That’s a refrain I haven’t heard since Chef “died” so horribly in South Park! 🙂

    BTW, Shakira’s Desi style dance sucked …… it wasn’t very desi except for the beginning. Shakira can’t dance to save her life…. that is unless it involves anything else than psychedelic bellydancing or contortioning. The desi(?) gals “shaking their thang” in ghagra-cholis looked like something out of those seedy open air late night stripper joits that operate in rural AP (vids are a rage in DT now…. I watched one for the sake of social science onlee 😉 ). The worst part was the brotha mouthing something on illegal immigrants and how he’s gonna ace this a$$ and all those staple Gangsta Rap stuff.
    As we say back home ,”Voll in voll, veree horripilating onlee!”

  15. Sometimes its good to be silly, even if its with a (silly) tag 🙂 and the way you did it, there is nothing sentimental about it, so no fears there! And since when did you start reciprocating good deeds 😉

  17. @GB – “@Sanjay: Aww come on. Its not essential for a batsman to replace a batsman. ”

    I think you either misunderstood my point or dont know that KP played for Natal mainly as a (spin) bowler (during his Natal days he wasn’t known for his bating) and Goolam bodi (in 1998-99) was actually a better bowler than KP. KP’s batting talent flourished only when he moved to Nottingham in 2000.

  18. @Joy Forever: Thank you

    @Tapan: 🙂

    @Yourfan: In reality, I cease to be funny and happy-go-lucky the moment I am in a tense situation. I dont work well under stress. Otherwise I am never ever a serious person.

    @Yourfan2: No idea.

    @Bonatellis: Yes I saw.

    @Ali: I wear edible underwear. So I win.

    @The Wanderer: Point about Harishchandra. However its always Yudhisthira who comes to mind when one thinks of things that don’t lie.

    @Sameera: Yes I am one fun character !

    @the Monk: Good.

    @Vuttaa: Not sure about the joke regarding me scratching my balls.

    @Rohan: There is an extremetracking counter at the bottom. You can click it and see all my stats …blog stats that is. Why dont you subscribe to Bloglines where you can get all your favorite blogs at once place? Or use something like Windows Live or My Yahoo where you can customize your blog feeds.

    @Bidisha: As we become old, we start reciprocating things.

    @Twisted DNA: No it means I have the hots for Kunika’s sister.

    @Beau Peep: Well..

    @Nandhu: I am so glad you didnt.

    @Sanjay: I thought he was always known as an allrounder. It was later that he became exclusively a batsman.

    @Amethyst: Well yes. This is about it.

  19. you say:

    “Just to show I am an equal opportunities offender, I will confess to the fact that I dressed up as a not-so-holy Hindu sadhu for a fancy dress competition when I was 10 years old.”

    … where are your parodies of the other religions?

    – s.b.

  20. @Somebody: God! Give us a break! This blog is too good to be filled up with Arnab proving himself to be an equal opportunity offender and parodying all the religions of the universe (including the Xingbluthjq cult of Rigel IX).

    Of all silliness connected with this post, this has to be the silliest.
